Apple Ribbons with Basil Pesto | Nutrition Stripped

Some nights, when you’re craving pasta yet don’t want to fuss with something hot or do much of any cooking- this is the perfect pasta dish containing less than 10 ingredients! The marriage of tart green apples, which are not only low in sugar but contain a fiber called pectin which is great for our digestion; mixed with sweet and savory pesto made with fresh basil and meaty walnuts is so refreshing. Cheers for fall apples, apple curls, basil pesto, and the ultimate combination of sweet and savory!

Shaved Summer Salad with Apricot Vinaigrette



Last week, I was hosting the Balanced Body & Life Summer Splash retreat with the amazing wellness team of Blackberry Farm and to say I enjoyed it would be an understatement. As much as I was keeping you all up to date with my adventures outdoors via Instagram and snapchat, I actually put away all technology and it was AMAZING! I haven’t felt this relaxed, refreshed, and inspired in a really long time; it just goes to show that I have to practice this for myself much more often…then who knows what I’ll be bringing to the table next! This recipe today is inspired by one of my favorite dishes I had during my stay + my insatiable hunger for peaches and apricots this time of year; Shaved Summer Salad with Apricot Vinaigrette.

Beetroot Pineapple Salad with Mint


Pineapple Beet Salad | Nutrition Stripped

As of right now, I’m still in San Francisco shooting my cookbook and it’s been full of emotions; being absolutely spent and exhausted at the end of the day from excitement, working hard, and doing something I love is a feeling I’ll never take for granted. I wish I could show you all what’s going on with all the cookbook recipes, but for now they’ll just be little glimpses of what I’m up to on Instagram- today we’re shooting main entrees and wrapping up shooting all the soups, which are so good!

THIS. This salad has been my go-to for the past several weeks leading up to traveling, I just can’t seem to eat enough or stop making it each batch cooking day! It’s super simple, requires no more than 5 ingredients, is incredibly balanced in flavors, contains fibers, carbohydrates, antioxidants, enzymes, and nutrients galore! Juicy, sweet and slightly tart pineapple combines with sweet and earthy roasted beets, topped with blood sugar stabilizing cinnamon, soothing fresh mint and a drizzle of healthy fats from extra virgin olive oil. The entire salad takes less than 5 minutes to pull together once you have the beets roasted and tastes sublime!

Shaved Asparagus Salad


Shaved Asparagus Salad | Nutrition Stripped

Spring has completely sprung here in Nashville, I just noticed the first tulips of the season bloom over Easter weekend and it was such a lovely little surprise. Not only are flowers blooming, but this also means all the local farmers are started to gather up their crops and farmers markets will be in full swing before we know it. One of my favorite spring veggies to cook with is asparagus! Asparagus is one of those vegetables that you either LOVE or you’re not too keen on it (to put in a nice way). This Shaved Asparagus Salad contains some of my favorite spring and late winter produce, including blood oranges, raw shaved asaparagus spears, lemons, toasted pine nuts, high quality olive oil, and simple seasonings that take this salad to the next level and is another way to celebreate spring!
