Soba and Kale Salad

kalesoba

I’ve reached the sugar-saturation point in the holiday season. The last week has been intensely cookie-and candy-filled, and now I want nothing more than vegetables, and tons of them. I didn’t eat all of those, but I came close. We had a couple holiday parties this weekend, and since [...]

Risotto-Style Farro with Caramelized Onions, Squash, and Kale

farro

This weekend I went from being completely anti-Christmas (I did not listen to a single Christmas song until Saturday) to a little too holiday-ready given the fact that it’s not even Thanksgiving yet. I blame Michael’s, where I bought some holiday baking supplies… I just started a Holiday Baking [...]

Quinoa, Lentil, and Kale Salad

Last night, Mike and I put a huge dent in that bowl of leftover Halloween candy. I don’t want to think about it. At least we had this for dinner…nothing like kale and lentils to make you feel really healthy, even if you just ate far too many Whoppers [...]

Rice and Kale Casserole

We had our week of summer and now it’s casserole weather! I have mixed feelings about casseroles. When they’re based on cream-of-whatever soup I definitely am not a fan. When they have rice and vegetables and just the right amount of cheese, though, I love them. It’s also perfect [...]

Kale and Farro with Marinated Tofu

Wow, what a weekend! It was exactly what a good weekend should be. Incredibly relaxing, but also just productive enough to feel like I got lots done without being stressed out. We kicked off Saturday morning with a visit to the gym. After not going for a week and [...]

Pesto Barley Salad

This was the first weekend in months that did not include a run. I hoped this day wouldn’t come, but I think my running days are over for this pregnancy. The last few runs I went on were really uncomfortable, and my back ended up absolutely killing me. I [...]

Colcannon

It just so happens that yesterday was my 26th birthday. Judge all you want to, but I’m one of those people that still gets excited about my birthday, probably in part because my family has a knack for picking out the absolute best birthday presents ever. My parents sent [...]

Raw Kale salad

When I first encountered “healthy-living blogs” I did not see the point. There are hundreds, maybe thousands, of these blogs where the person takes a picture of every single thing they eat, every single day. Not only did this seem like a complete waste of time, it seemed a [...]

Kale and Onion Tacos with Guajillo Salsa

Kale may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you’re making Mexican food, but trust me, it should be. Whether or not kale actually grows in Mexico, I’m not sure, but it goes really nicely with tortillas and is much healthier than say, carne asada, so [...]

Kale and Barley Gratin

I generally think there are two kinds of people in the world: those who embrace vegetables in their natural form, and those who are less fond and prefer them hidden so they don’t realize what they’re eating. This amazing gratin is a perfectly happy medium that will suit both [...]
