Paleo Zucchini Banana Bread Bars with chocolate chips are the BEST way to enjoy a healthier treat when you have a sweet tooth. They also make a great snack since they’re packed with fiber and protein. 

WELCOME TO ZUCCHINI WEEK 2017. I’m so excited we’re doing this again!

If you’re wondering what in the hell zucchini week is, well it’s basically where I bring you zucchini recipes every day this week (except Friday). We’re talking snacks, breakfast, dinner and desserts.

I know you’re probably like, why zucchini week out of all the things?! Frankly because I know what it feels like to have a real out of control zucchini problem.

Gorgeous roasted strawberries paired with creamy goat cheese and fresh basil on top of crispy crostini. An incredible summer appetizer that’s perfect for entertaining! 

We’re already in the middle of summer and I feel like time is flying. Anyone else? I forget how fast it goes when each week brings something different and the sun stays out till 9PM. I’m so lucky to be spending this summer traveling, spending time with people I love, and of course cooking and eating delicious food.

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.

Amazing sweet potato taco bowls packed with plant based protein and your favorite southwest flavors, then drizzled with Bolthouse Farms Avocado Ranch yogurt dressing! Easy to make ahead of time & perfect to pack for lunch.

Oh hey Monday. I hope you guys had an amazing (and hopefully) shorter week last week. My mom and I spent some much needed time together exploring and walking around Chicago, getting pedicures, baking tahini brownies, new muffin recipes, and making her amazing Puerto Rican food that I haven’t had since I was 18. Where does the time go?

Every time I’m with my mom, I’m inspired to go back to the authentic flavors of Latin cuisine that I grew up with. Sofrito, homemade sazon, plantains, green chile and so much more. I can’t wait to start incorporating those flavors more into my recipes and teaching you all about the food that’s near and dear to my heart.

Paleo and gluten free turkey burger sliders on sweet potato buns. An easy bite sized recipe or appetizer!

Did you know the official first day of summer was LAST week? I don’t know about you, but it has felt like summer here in Chicago for about a month now. I’ve been absolutely loving the heat, the longer days, and the chance to hang out on the patio with Tony.

We also have a bird feeder, so Milly likes to come plop her belly out and watch the birds too.

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.

Healthy turkey sloppy joes with an easy homemade sauce made with ingredients you probably already have in your cupboard. Everyone loves this recipe because it can also be made in the slow cooker and doubled… or tripled for a crowd.

I went through a phase in high school where I was constantly asking my beautiful mama to make me sloppy joes for dinner.

Mom, forgive me but those things were gooooodd.

Baked coconut donuts with a sweet berry glaze. Easy to make and perfect for patriotic holidays like the 4th of July. I call these the All American Donuts.

Did you guys see my Instagram stories this weekend? I FINALLY got around to creating my little patio garden. I picked up a few plants on Saturday afternoon after my workout then spent the rest of the afternoon planting gorgeous arrangements on my deck before a storm rolled through. Guys, I’m not kidding when I say I had such a great time.

I still want to plant a few herbs and possibly a tomato plant, but we’ll get there eventually.
