Sometimes the simplest recipes I make end up being my absolute favorites. To me there’s nothing better than a few fresh ingredients and a killer seasoning or sauce, especially when it comes to sides! Today we’re ringing in spring with 17 of the best healthy side dish recipes that are perfect for pairing with literally any meal you make.
Layers upon layers of veggies snuggled between black beans, corn tortillas, a homemade chipotle enchilada sauce and cheese. The best and easiest vegetarian enchilada casserole! This post is in partnership with Almond Breeze.
How was your weekend? Hopefully as beautiful as mine was. I found myself back home and getting back into wedding planning after a week or two off. Someone get me a margarita and a giant piece of this cheesy veggie packed enchilada casserole.
Easy, flavorful tuna wraps drizzled with light chipotle Greek yogurt ranch dressing. They’re the perfect summertime lunch and packed with delicious farmer’s market veggies.
Say hello to my new favorite lunch because I couldn’t believe how much I LOVED it. I’ve been on a pretty consistent, early morning workout routine as of late, which means by the time I’m thinking about lunch (as early as 10:30AM for Abra and I…) I want something quick, filling, and of course, delish.
Amazing low fat healthy banana bread made with whole wheat flour, coconut oil, protein packed greek yogurt and naturally sweetened with a touch of pure maple syrup. Everyone loves this bread because it can easily be made into muffins too!
I’ve discovered a sneaky little trick to making the best banana bread in the whole wide world.
It’s a combination of things you see. Quality ingredients, extra ripe, brown-spotted bananas, a sprinkle of cinnamon, a touch of natural sweetener and of course all the love you’ve got to give.
Roasted sweet potato arugula salad is a perfect lunch or appetizer. Topped with a light honey mustard yogurt dressing with a hint of gorgeous turmeric color.
How are we all feeling after the long weekend? Relaxed and rejuvenated?
Ready for another 3 day weekend? *me too*
Yesterday I went on a 3 mile run because I woke up with a massive wine hangover and needed some oxygen pumped to my brain. What? Just being honest over here… the best way to cure a hangover is a little bit of exercise.

My Godparents have a wonderful red quaint little cabin overlooking a huge lake in northern Minnesota. There’s a tiny plot of sand in the back and two docks that extend to look out to where people go boating and jet-skiing. Many of my favorite memories as a child were there, including most of the summertime holidays like Memorial Day and 4th of July.
I’m backkkkkkk… and dang, what a trip! The weather was B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L! Each day the blue sky sparkled without a cloud in sight while parasailers floated nearby. We played tennis, got massages, laid by the beach, swam in the infinity pool and drank WAY too many margaritas.
Of course, I’d have more photos to show you but my phone was stolen. Which was a little bit of a bummer, but then I said hello to the new iPhone 7. This little mama is happy.
Golden chicken lentil soup made with creamy light coconut milk, turmeric, ginger, garlic, and cumin. Delicious flavors; this soup will be your new favorite!
How was your weekend? We had a lovely one over here with beautiful vibrant blue skies and 60 degree temps. Saturday night was even nice enough for us to grill out with homemade cumin turkey burgers, roasted peppers and plenty of wine to fill our glasses.
Last week was an entirely different story though. It was cold, rainy and I could never seem to get warm enough even when I was wrapped up in a fuzzy blanket.
The cure for having the chills? A comforting bowl of delicious soup simmering away on the stove top and devoured with your favorite crackers on top.
