Sweet Potato and Pepper Hash with Baked Eggs

Sweet Potato and Pepper Hash with Baked Eggs

I’m on a roll with these breakfast items. Well really, I’m just super into sweet potatoes lately. And I’m also into food that tastes even better the next day. Since John and I have later nights Monday through Thursday, we typically sit down to eat together around 8:30 PM. I typically get home around 7:45/8. So, yeah, I’m not making anything fancy. Typically, I cook a lot on Saturday and Sunday, and one or two mornings a week, I prepare…

Kale and Sun-Dried Tomato Spaghetti Squash Casserole

Kale and Sun-Dried Tomato Spaghetti Squash Casserole

John and I typically have about 10-15 minutes between patients around 2ish where we typically call that time “lunch.” Oh, we totally do that to ourselves. I’m obsessed with the thought of efficiency (to like the point of self-destruction in some cases) If I’m going to be at work for 12 hours, I want to be see patients for 11.5-11.75 hours. (Enter: self-destruction when I do that 4 days per week with a shorter Friday for weeks on end.)  …

Red Curry with Purple Potatoes and Swiss Chard

Red Curry with Purple Potatoes and Swiss Chard

John is dying a slow death as he nears the end of the Whole30, but this flavorful meal distracted him just enough. I really thought that he would have been used to some of the changes by now. And really, guys, he’s not suffering. Well. He may argue otherwise. But he feels better. His energy levels have stabilized. He feels satisfied with all of the meals. Yet. The fact that he has limitations imposed on him is the real thing…

Balsamic and Thyme Marinated Portobello Mushrooms

Balsamic and Thyme Marinated Portobello Mushrooms

Easily one of the best things about the whole30 is that it’s stimulating my creativity. I typically have my go-to vegetables that I love. Those always include Brussels sprouts, butternut squash, and leafy greens. John will always happily eat all of the vegetables that I prepare…as long as they’re accompanied by some type of pasta. There’s something in his Italian heart that makes him undeniably and inexplicably in love with pasta. So yeah, those vegetables are fine, but they are…

Roasted Garlic and Sage Butternut Squash Soup

Roasted Garlic and Sage Butternut Squash Soup

This is barely a recipe. It’s kind of embarrassing. But also genius. This Roasted Garlic and Sage Butternut Squash Soup is a 4 ingredient (plus seasoning), healthy (and vegan) soup, perfect for those winter months where the hours of day light are few, and my ambition is low. HOWEVER. In my truest of fashions, I decided to complicate this recipe. But it’s totally worth it. (That’s how I typically justify my complications in other aspects of my life as well) I…

Sweet Potato, Spinach, and Mushroom Veggie Burgers

Sweet Potato, Spinach, and Mushroom Veggie Burgers

So I would like to be able to sustain myself on vegetables and baked goods. Emphasis on the latter. Alas, that’s not the best of ideas. Vegetables. Vegetables are a good idea. They’re particularly a good idea when on the Whole30. My husband, J boy, somewhat reluctantly agreed when I asked him if he wanted to join me for the January Whole30. And really, his joining me has been the best inspiration for my recent recipe creations. These veggie burgers begin with…

Calamari Salad

Calamari Salad

One of the greatest injustices in my (truly injustice-free) life is that I can’t eat dessert for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert.   Well, I could. But my already sensitive body would hate me. I wish dessert loved me back as much as I love it. But I digress. JBoy and I have to eat real food. Cue: calamari salad. As it’s starting to get warmer (with the exception of these last few rainy and cold days), cold salads are…
