If you’re not taking advantage of all of the fresh produce available right now, you’re missing out. Everything is so much better this time of year. This salad takes advantage of both fresh corn and zucchini, and the dressing keeps the salad light!
Yes, this is my third post in the history of this blog about quesadillas. But here’s the deal, quesadillas are amazing. And if you go light on the cheese, and heavy on the vegetables, they’re a relatively healthy easy weeknight dinner. So we tend to eat them a lot. Usually we have a pretty standard quesadilla combo (see here), but here’s a new take on them. It’s sort of the caprese salad of quesadillas. Our basil plant has been doing really well so I’ve been trying to add pesto to as many things as possible. For a pesto recipe, see here.
It’s actually surprising that I don’t post more recipes about kale because I really LOVE kale. I literally eat it everyday. But here is a new take on it. This bruschetta is easy to make, and I serve it on toasted bread on top of a layer of low-fat cream cheese or goat cheese (we tried both and both are great).
I get it, we’re all busy and you can’t always spend a lot of time cooking. But if you still want to bring your own lunch to work, here is a salad we’ve started making that you can very easily prep at night.
Continuing with healthy recipes, here’s a lentil and sweet potato stew that can easily be made in the crock pot. The most work you have to do for this is some chopping, and then remember to throw it all in the crock pot. If you have a long work day, you can also start this at night and stop it when you wake up.
The last few weeks have been a bit hectic, so it’s been hard to have time to make dinner. But this soup is one of the easier soups to make. It is also a one pot soup, meaning not a lot of clean up. Plus it’s healthy. So if you’re like me, and ate a lot of Valentine’s Day cookies, this can help undo all that eating.
So after last Wednesday’s post for quesadillas, I’m back to healthy Wednesday posts with today’s curried cauliflower soup. No other intro needed. This is healthy, hearty, and not your average soup. So whip up a batch this week or weekend!
