I can't really imagine a time before this Roasted Squash and Pepita Pesto Dip was in my life. Okay, that sounds dramatic, but I'm really happy it's in my life. And, since it's friendly to almost any diet, it's a great recipe to make when you've got a lot of guests with dietary restrictions.
The holidays are the one time of year we think it's permitted, nay essential, that you eat pie at each and every chance. We prefer hand pies like these Spiced Cranberry Pear so we can have them on the go, as a snack, or just our very own individual portion just because.
Our resolution is to eat healthier when traveling because we know you know how tough that can be. To make it a little easier, we've come up with a list of our favorite healthy storebout snacks that travel really, really well.
I've got a confession: I eat any and everything when I'm out on the road. But when I get home? At home I eat super vegetarian. As in lots of salads, dips, and veggies upon veggies. Truth is, it's the only way I can get back on track after being on the road. And right this second I've got a crush on these Split Pea Veggie Wraps with Cilantro-Mint Chutney.
Good food on the go is still not the norm, so, we're always, always in search of something healthy that travels well and still tastes good after a few hours in the air. This Peanut Chicken Collard Greens Wrap totally fits the bill—filling enough to keep you away from the pretzels but not so much that you'll food coma in the air.
Seriously, you guys, I found it. This is it. The Fall muffin to top all other Fall muffins. Pretty enough to serve to company yet substantial enough to take along as a road snack on your next trip. With cinnamon, pumpkin, and apple, it's 100% Fall flavors and the streusel makes it just sweet enough.
These hand pies are culinary panacea - road trips are made better by their presence, breakfast sweeter, and the holidays that much simpler. Lately I’ve been playing around with these apple hand pies that ride the line of sweet and savory. I like sauteéd apples with thyme on my pork chops, apples ...
Do you have a travel tradition? Something small you do on every trip? Neither do I, but as of this very moment I want to change that. Starting with sharing some travel inspirations with my fellow travelers.
My friend Delilah has taught me a lot. She's taught me that a train cocktail is a must when taking the Amtrak surfliner for our weekend Baja California trips. She's taught me that is perfectly fine to steal your neighbors loquats if it's to make jam that you'll then give to said neighbor. And she's taught me about the magic that are these falafel.
I'm a creature of habit and when it comes to eating that means I eat anything put in front of me while traveling and then I eat SUPER clean when I'm home in Los Angeles. For at least 5 days after a big trip, I'll cut out all alcohol, caffeine, dairy, and refined sugars. It's not so much a cleanse...
I'm of the belief that there is little more comforting that a well-made deli sandwich. In an effort to make a healthy sandwich to take on the go, I dreamed up this farm fresh take on a classic deli sandwich: veggies whipped goat cheese, toasted multigrain bread, roasted sweet potatoes, and a drizzle of tahini for that extra bit of decadence.
