This is my favorite vegetarian sandwich: pesto, tomatoes & mozzarella. Lucky for me, my husband feels the same way and is happy that I serve it for dinner once per week! Unfortunately my kids are allergic to nuts so they can’t have pesto, but I just make it for them without it.
It’s super simple, and I make some type of baked vegetable to go with it to make the meal feel more substantial since it’s for dinner.
You COULD go nuts and make your own pesto, but the store bought ones I’ve found are so delicious and relatively ‘clean’ so I choose not to and instead choose to make it the easiest dinner night ever. I’ve used the basil pesto made by Whole Foods and by Cibo Naturals and they are both delicious.
Have you heard of Goodful? I’m obsessed. If you follow them on facebook you will get these awesome video recipes that show you how to make an entire meal in a 5 second video. I can watch those things all day!!
When I came across a recipe for Chocolate Banana Mug Cake, I knew I had to try it. It looked super easy to make, the ingredients were on the healthier side (although after a few tries I ended up changing them a bit) and it looked rich and decadent.
I wanted the last post of 2016 to be a sweet one, so below please find an easy, healthy recipe for carrot raisin oatmeal cookies. I made these a few days ago and brought them over to our friends’ house. They were quickly devoured and got a huge thumbs up.
What I love about these cookies is that they can easily pass for a healthy snack. The only sugar is 1/2 cup of pure maple syrup for the entire recipe! The rest of the ingredients are good to go: oatmeal, ceylon cinnamon, unsweetened applesauce, walnuts and carrots!
