Got inspiration from my favorite website this week…and it turned out most of my meals fit into that healthy-ish category too!
Meat and veggies did some role-reversal this week. Read on for details!
From forcing veggies into a rich meal with a side salad, to taking the place of bread, to adding a much-need crunch, a good head of romaine is underrated during the summer months. Read on for proof!
Looking back at this week I realized all but one meal consisted of only three ingredients (well, three main ingredients), and the one meal that was more than three could easily be cut down to that–if you really wanted to stick with a theme! Read on for some truly minimalist cooking.
