If you know me even just a little bit, you know that food is my love language (specifically avocados!) I am an advocate for eating clean and healthy because I know that how we eat impacts how we feel in our mind, body, and soul. I try to eat dairy-free, gluten-free vegetarian or pescatarian meals but I don't want to be in the kitchen forever! I have too many other things I want to do that don't involve slaving over a hot stove all afternoon!
So the other day, I asked my Facebook friends for healthy, dairy-free, gluten-free vegetarian or pescatarian recipes. I had so many comments that I could barely read and organize them all. But I'll be darned if I didn't try!
To get everything in one place, I decided to put all of the links and comments here. I knew this would be the only way I wouldn't lose everything. I hope you find a few new things to add to your repertoire (how the heck do you spell that anyway?!) Now... gotta get into the kitchen...
Simple salmon picatta- bake in foil with olive oil, lemon, capers, salt, and pepper and serve over rice or pasta. (Note: I would likely serve with broccoli, asparagus, or a salad instead of the grain to make this Ayurvedic friendly!)
Trout Provencale- I found a recipe HERE that sounds easy and delicious
Seafood Paella- I have to admit that I am intimidated by mussels and squid so I probably wouldn't make this... but if you find shellfish simple and easy, this recipe from Epicurious looks good
Brussel sprout gnocchi- The recipe that was sent to me wouldn't open because I don't have a NY Times membership, but I found this one that sounds amazing too!
Yogi Carrot Salad- Shred carrots. Add pecan halves and raisins. Squeeze on lemon juice. Shake on Curry powder. Toss and enjoy. Add Tahini if you choose. (Note: I love when people give me recipes with no measurements!)
Gypsy Soup- I can't wait to try this when it gets cold again
Website or cookbook suggestions:
True Food Cookbook- you know I love Dr. Weil's 478 breathing, so of course I also love his cookbook
Shine Kitchen Cookbook- I love to support local businesses, and these triplet sisters from Boulder shine both in and out of the kitchen
Thug Kitchen- While not all of the recipes are healthy or vegetarian, there are some good ones on here that I want to try like the Black Bean Squash Enchiladas
Oh She Glows- There are some really great recipes on this site, such as this Lentil Soup. I would eat this even in the summer when it's hot outside!
