End of the Week Frittata

End of the Week Frittata | Nutrition Stripped

It’s the end of the week, well actually it’s the beginning of the week, but let’s just say it’s like Thursday or Friday, you come home from work and open your fridge to find a bunch of random leftovers, vegetables that are hanging onto their last breath begging to be used, and a carton of eggs untouched. THIS is the recipe you need in that moment. End of the Week Frittata is a recipe you can assemble in under 10 minutes and takes no more than 30 minutes to cook in the oven- perfect amount of time to settle in from a long work day or clean up from the prep. Another added bonus, it’s one of the most flexible and forgiving “recipes” there is.

Caribbean Plantain & Bean Boats

RECIPE

Caribbean Plantain Bean Boats | Nutrition Stripped

Happy Cinco de Mayo everyone! I’m really excited to share a recipe using plantains, since I came to the realization I have yet to do so; this recipe is the perfect example of how excited I get to make healthy eating fun, delicious, and inspiring! Caribbean Plantain & Bean Boats are the epitome of having fun with your food, not only while making it but while eating it. Starchy and slightly sweet plantains are roasted with a bit of coconut oil, then topped with a sweet corn and black bean salad with pops of fresh cilantro, red onion, lime juice, jalapeno, and diced tomatoes. It’s served open faced like my Beachy Papaya Boats and topped with shredded coconut for an extra oomph of the Caribbean. I’ve been enjoying this recipe for weeks as a quick and healthy lunch or dinner since I’ve been so busy finishing up writing the last bit of the cookbook (eeeek!)- I still can’t believe I’m off to San Francisco next week to shoot.

RECIPE

Sweet Potato Pecan Tacos | Nutrition Stripped

Last year I shared with you all those delicious Spring Veggie Tacos and Avocado Cream and I’m glad you enjoyed them as much as I do, but this year I wanted to step it up a bit and bring you my new favorite way to enjoy tacos! They’re filled with roasted sweet potato, lightly dusted with cumin and blood sugar balancing cinnamon, a Black Bean Pecan Cream that’s out of this world, chopped tomatoes, red onion, and fresh cilantro, then topped with the simplest Lime Cream topping to bring the entire dish together, all encased in an organic corn tortilla. Cheers to taco season everyone!

Deconstructed Beet Bourguignon and Pilaf

Deconstructed Beef Bourguignon with Pilaf | Nutrition Stripped

Can I start off by saying, I’m BEYOND EXCITED to share this recipe with you all- it’s so good I can’t take it. Bourguignon (boor-gee-nyawn) is a well known French recipe that was most famously brought to mainstream cooking with Julia Child’s beef bourguignon. With Easter Sunday quickly approaching, many homes around the world will celebrate with some type of hearty roast or stew; I was inspired to make a Nutrition Stripped style homage to Julia Child’s beef Bourguignon sans the beef…and totally deconstructed…and made with beets as the centerpiece. Hearty quartered tri-colored beets on a bed of fluffy millet pilaf with roasted almonds and thyme, smothered with a bourguignon stew reduction, and topped with fresh parsley. The combination is crazy delicious and something completely unexpected when you think of beets and bourguignon. I promise, make this for Easter Sunday or any Sunday roast for that matter, and you’ll have a crowd pleaser.

Pesto Green Eggs & Avocado Toast

Pesto Green Eggs with Avocado Toast | Nutrition Stripped

Yesterday, was one of my favorite days. It was Dr. Seuss’s birthday! I know, I know this is a totally random “favorite” day to have, but ever since I was a kid I adored every single Dr. Seuss book to the extent that I would re-read the same book over and over again- Green Eggs and Ham being one of my favorites from the bunch. I thought it would be a fun tribute to one of my favorite childhood authors by creating a completely Nutrition Stripped approved “green eggs and no ham” type of recipe completely inspired by the whackiness that is the concept, green eggs. To this day, I’ll never know or understand why Dr. Seuss’s eggs were green nor do I want to know how they got to be that off color; all I know is that I’m making my green eggs with delicious basil pesto with a side of avocado toast- all greens.
