Let’s be the healthiest people we know this year

By Nashville Food

Happy New Year! The last few years have been pregnancies and postpartum with hardly any breaks in between, it seems. I haven’t had much consistency in my meal planning, and, more often than not, I couldn’t find the energy or the stomach to cook much. (Thank you @ubereats and @postmates! 👏) My husband said last night, “Let’s be the healthiest people we know this year.” Considering he’d eat nothing but chips and salsa if I didn’t feed him, I have to step up my game. We are focusing on clean, vegetarian foods with the occasional seafood. I’ve been eating meat for a few months and found it made me feel sluggish, so I want to see if I feel a difference when I focus on plants. My youngest is nearly 6 months old and I’m feeling super motivated! I made some good old-fashioned slow-cooked collards today with some baked black-eyed peas, and buttermilk (wheat) cornbread. Here’s to a year of good luck and health for all! 🥂

Last lunch of 2018

By Nashville Food

Last lunch of 2018! My son always says his favorite part of school is lunch and I love a good theme, so here we are. I went with @babybelus cheese Santa belts, #grinch grapes, popcorn with sprinkles, candy cane (sun butter and honey) sandwich and reindeer food (cashews and raisins) in the middle. I hope he loves it more than I loved cutting out those tiny belt buckles. 😁🎄

Halibut Vermicilli Bowls

By Nashville Food

Halibut Vermicilli Bowls for dinner tonight. I seared the @virgin_bay_seafood Alaskan halibut in garlic and butter in a cast iron skillet, then broiled it for about 4 minutes and squeezed a little lime juice over the top. To make the sauce, I combined garlic, ginger, brown sugar, fish sauce, rice vinegar, lime juice, red pepper flakes and jalapeño. I served it with roasted portabella and asparagus, fresh cucumber and jalapeño, and garnished with basil and cilantro. I’m trying to minimize my carbs, so instead of vermicelli, I substituted power greens💪🏼 .

Breakfast Dinner

By Nashville Food

Tonight my 5 year-old said he wanted “breakfast dinner”, so that’s what he got. I made a frittata with 8 eggs, leftover roasted @whitesquirrelfarm sweet potato (AMAZING), kale, and queso fresco (because that’s what kind of cheese I had). The frittata method I use is pretty much the same no matter what. I whisk the eggs with a little salt and pepper. Then I add butter to a cast iron skillet (set on low) and add in the eggs once it’s melted. I add in my cooked veggies and chopped raw greens. Once the eggs start to set around the edges, but still have a runny center, I move it a 375 degree oven for 5 minutes. Then I add some cheese to the top and broil it until the cheese is melted and bubbly. I cut it with a pizza cutter and called it breakfast pizza and my boys gobbled it up. We had ours with a @whitesquirrelfarm spinach salad with fresh radishes and turnips and dressed with lemon/orange juice and olive oil. My husband said they were the best greens he’s ever had. 🙌🏻 .
