Good morning, y’all!! Enjoying/DEVOURING (same thing, right? 😉) this little cup of deliciousness.
@siggisdairy vanilla yogurt, granola, blueberries, & apples (lightly cooked in coconut oil on the stove & topped with cinnamon, YUM).
Feeling so ready to get this week started! I hope you’re having an excellent day & let me know - What did you eat for breakfast? 😋
Starting off my week with a big stack of waffles. Pretty sure I made too many by mistake...or was it a mistake? Love healthy eating, but also love to cheat. What is your favorite cheat meal? #waffles#mondaymotivation#cheatday
Make your Monday extra special by digging into our Spicy Black Bean Pita!! 🌶 A little spicy and a lot delicious!! We like it with mushrooms, onions, peppers, tomatoes, hot peppers, and ancho chipotle sauce. What do you guys like on it? 🌯😋 ⠀
Back to school prep is underway in a big way! Making an entire loaf of French Toast to freeze so that my 6th grader can quickly heat and eat a homemade breakfast before school next week. Honestly, I’d like to have him home for another month—the summer flies by way too quickly! #optimistickitchen#frenchtoastfordays#makeyourkitchenyourhappyplace
For what feels like forever, I’ve been keeping something from you guys. But today, I’m spilling the secret. I’M WRITING A COOKBOOK! I truly still can’t believe I’m saying those words out loud, but it’s true! And I’m absolutely OVER the moon about it. ❤️
When my publisher first reached out to me, I honestly thought it was a joke. Wait, who…me? A cookbook? I still to this day have a hard time wrapping my head around it. It’s been a forever dream of mine, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to be putting all the love and passion I have for food, cooking, recipe development, and photography into something that I can hold in my hands. 📚
I can’t wait to share more details with you, but for now let’s just say it’s a book centered around incorporating more vegetables into your meals in new, fun, and flavorful ways, and showcasing them as the star, rather than a side! 🥗
And there will be veggie cocktails AND desserts in there too! Because it wouldn’t be my book if there weren’t! But seriously, most of all, THANK YOU, each and every one of you, from the bottom of my heart. This would never be remotely possible without all of your support, and I truly cannot thank you enough. XOXO 😘
Soupe Miso au Tofu • La recette que vous attendiez tant est enfin disponible sur le blog 👩🏼🍳 Comme précisé, ce n’est pas la version traditionnelle mais ma propre version donc j’espère que la recette vous plaira autant que celle des restaurants japonais 🥢 #soupemiso#recette#blog#cookwithelsa
Happy Monday! ❤️ my weekend was FULL of fun because my parents were able to visit and go to the @indystatefair with us ☺️
That being said, sometimes super fun weekends like that through my digestion off a bit (you can search “listening to my gut” on the blog to read more details about that story) and I need to “tighten things up” and eat lower FODMAP foods that I know my sensitive tummy can handle. .
SO thankful for @fodyfoods and their flavorful seasonings, sauces, and snacks because now even when I need to adjust the foods I eat, I feel good AND my food tastes even better...seriously. This MAPLE DIJON SALMON will absolutely be making an appearance this week 😍 (clickable link in profile)
Also-keep it positive and share something fun you did this weekend?!
#ad This fun and easy kid's lunch idea is great option during this busy back to school season!! My little guy loves to help prepare AND eat them! :) Snag the recipe by clicking the link in my profile! @spaceshipsandlaserbeams #WeAreBetterTogether @jifbrand @smuckersbrand
NEW! I love finding new ways to enjoy the flavors of my childhood while still keeping things healthy. In this case, Cuban picadillo goes vegan! 🙌🏼 This picadillo is made with lentils! It tastes just like Cuban-style ground beef picadillo except it’s all plant-based. The peppers were added for good measure 😉 Can’t wait for you guys to make this! [recipe is linked in bio]
Coming back from vacation & jumping right back into a week of work can be tough, but I’ll be damned if I was going to let the Sunday scaries get me down 2 weeks in a row! 🙅🏼♀️ When we got back in town yesterday I didn’t waste any time getting back to my usual Sunday routine — hitting up the grocery store(s), meal planning & prepping for a busy week ahead! 💃🏼🛒🥦🥕🍠 Now I’m starting this Monday morning feeling prepared, motivated and ready to tackle my long AF to-do list! 😝 what helps you get in the right mindset for a busy week?! 👇🏼 #backtoreality#aldihaul#wellnessforthewin
