I first heard about acai bowls when pro surfer Rob Machado talked them up as his healthy breakfast that he'd discovered while on tour in Brazil. Not that I often listen to surfers for nutritional advice but I sought out acai and started making smoothies and acai bowls on a regular basis and go re...

Slow-Roasted Tomato and Cilantro-Cashew Picnic Sandwich

I'm a romantic at heart so I have these swoon-worthy visions of summertime picnics. At the seaside, at sunset, or at a music performance, there's something about the perfect picnic that just makes my culinary heart pitter patter. And, yes, the vision of my perfect picnic has cold lemonade, a more adult sipper, and a great salad, but it's pretty much incomplete unless there's a sandwich like this  Slow-Roasted Tomato and Cilantro-Cashew Picnic Sandwich.

Salty Sweet Blueberry Almond Granola Bars

Eating on a road trip is like eating at a sports game — your healthy-eating choices are limited at best.

So, before I hit the road I make these no-bake Blueberry Almond Granola Bars. They're easy to make, loaded with good-for-me ingredients, satisfies both the sweet and savory tooth, and, best of all, they haven't been sitting on a gas station shelf for six months.

Zucchini Rajas Salmon Tacos

This weekend Zucchini Rajas Salmon Tacos is where it's at. This a perfect recipe in that they're super easy to make but elegant enough to be from a restaurant. Which is likely because these Zucchini Rajas Salmon Tacos are highly inspired by the Sopa de Crema dish at Taco Maria restaurant. The recipe reflects the restaurant because Taco Maria is pretty unassuming when you first walk in but a few bites and it'll knock your calcetines off (see what I did there?).

Chopped Salad with Buttermilk-Peppercorn Dressing

I wish I knew about this salad so long ago. It's inspired by a salad I found at M Cafe de Chaya that's a bit fancier – with tempeh bacon, beets, and a vegan "Ranch" dressing. But, after spending way more than I should ever be spending on salads, I decided to make my own version.
