Salads

This post is sponsored by Blue Diamond Almonds.A year ago, I never would have thought I would be eating salmon, much less loving salmon.  Now I cannot get enough of it. Though fresh salmon can be on the pricey side (um, $7.99 per filet is rough on my credit card), I try to treat myself to [...]

A super simple Greek-inspired chickpea salad that is chock full of veggies.  It is a delicious spring/summer side dish and the perfect make-ahead lunch. I am craving salads like mad right now. Salads with lettuce, salads with pasta (GF now), and of course one of my favorites, chickpea salads. At this point I am not discriminating. [...]

This Pasta Salad and Robert Irvine LIVE Giveaway are sponsored by Omaha Performing Arts.  I received free tickets to "Robert Irvine LIVE," but was not compensated in any other way. No, you're eyes aren't playing tricks on you. These pictures do, in fact, look like they are straight out of a Summertime meal. Unfortunately, this [...]

Is there anything better than a BLT sandwich?  Maybe a vegan "TLT" in the form of a salad, perhaps? BLTs are just one of those staple sandwiches in the American diet, you know?  But maybe not so much for us veggie-eating folks... Just because we do not eat bacon does not mean that vegetarians and [...]

A simple, yet hearty chickpea salad recipe that is perfect for vegans and non-vegans alike! Some of you are probably thinking... "not another chickpea salad!"  Or if you are like me, you may be thinking... "Yes!  Another chickpea salad!"

This delicious egg salad incorporates the tastes of Summer produce: fresh peppers, peas, and tomatoes. I eat approximately 90% vegan and one of the main reasons why it is not 100% is because of my love for eggs.  I really love eggs. Scrambled eggs. Poached eggs. Sunnyside-up eggs. Hardboiled eggs. Let's be real.  Eggs are good [...]

A hearty Summertime pasta salad that is chocked full of veggies and is big on flavor. I was a picky child.  I was picky about my hair.  I was picky about my clothing (apparently I hated when my socks were twisted?).  And I was most definitely extremely picky about my food. As a result, the fact [...]
