#meatfreemonday was delicious tofu shiratake ramen in spicy miso broth with spinach, mushrooms, caramelized onion, carrot, & what was supposed to be soft boiled egg, but turned out more like medium boiled...still super tastey 😂 #glutenfree #diabeticfriendly #healthy #lowcarb #eatingfortheinsta #vegetarian #eatyourveggies #eatgreenthings #eattherainbow #eatlocal #JERF #easydinner #homemade #omnomnom #yummy #foodie #foodporn #happymouth #happytummy #foodphotography #ilovefood #spicyspicyspicy #miso #ramen #f52 #foodblogeats #foodfeed #FLAVOR #unrestrictedkitchen
Was feelin' a little fri-sty tonight, so I got a little feisty with the fryer 🤣 Seriously though, sweet potato fries, sauteed chayote & red bell pepper, steak & chimichurri was a FREAKIN' AWESOME combo. So tastey & satisfying, & the chimichurri added the brightness that otherwise sort heavy dish needed. For sure one for the book. #glutenfree #diabeticfriendly #healthy #indulgence #wehardlyevereatfriedfood #eatingfortheinsta #eatgreenthings #eatyourveggies #eattherainbow #eatlocal #JERF #omnomnom #yummy #foodie #foodporn #happymouth #happytummy #cookforyourlove #cookwithlove #homemade #foodphotography #ilovefood #f52 #foodblogeats #foodfeed #chimichurri #lowcarb #comfortfood #FLAVOR #unrestrictedkitchen
Sheet tray dinner last night after little girl went to her first birthday party & we were all exhausted. Roasted GF bourbon glazed salmon, roasted veggies, & @graintrust Cuban beans & rice. I really liked the spiciness of the beans & rice with the sweet salmon. The best part is that it took longer to prep everything (think 10 minutes) than to cook (8 minutes), & everything was so easy to clean up! #glutenfree #diabeticfriendly #healthy #eatingfortheinsta #eatyourveggies #eatgreenthings #eattherainbow #eatlocal #JERF #pescaterian #homemade #sheettraydinner #20minutemeal #omnomnom #yummy #foodie #foodporn #happymouth #happytummy #cookforyourlove #cookwithlove #foodphotography #ilovefood #fuelyourbody #cookingwithbooze #foodblogeats #foodfeed #f52 #FLAVOR #UNRESTRICTEDKITCHEN
Please tell me I'm not the only one who does this... eating tomatoes like apples. They are delicious & perfect just as they are. Babe says I'm crazy, & while he's correct on that in regards to lots of things, I stand by this being natural & wonderful & how God intended. I've loved tomatoes like this since I was little... my mom used to put them in my lunch! There's just something about them, fresh from the garden, that screams summer. Tomatoes -- nature's candy & an excellent late night snack. #tomatoes 🍅 #naturescandy #freshfromthegarden #summerfood #freshfood #glutenfree #diabeticfriendly #healthy #lowcarb #eatingfortheinsta #eatyourveggies #eattherainbow #eatlocal #JERF #omnomnom #latenightsnack #yummy #sunshineandlove #foodblogeats #foodie #foodporn #happymouth #happytummy #foodphotography #ilovefood #raw #whole30 #paleo #momlife #unrestrictedkitchen
Where those lovely left overs came from... grilled pork tenderloin with whiskey bbq sauce & grilled veggies (artichokes, zucchini, bell peppers, & onion). Babe went sauce free, so his was #paleo & #whole30 compliant; I really wanted that little kick of whiskey & spice 😁 Side note, grilled artichokes are AMAZING & if you've never tried it, I must insist you do. Prep them like you would to steam, then sit them in an ice bath of water & lemon juice for 15 minutes. Boil them for 15 minutes, then dry them off before putting them on the grill, basting them with a mixture of lemon juice, olive oil, & fresh garlic. And don't forget tui seadon them. They come out smokey & tender with little charred bits & they're so amazing!! #glutenfree #diabeticfriendly #protein #healthy #lowcarb #lowcalorie #eatingfortheinsta #eatyourveggies #eatgreenthings #eattherainbow #eatlocal #JERF #easydinner #grilling #omnomnom #yummy #foodie #foodporn #happymouth #happytummy #foodphotography #ilovefood #fuelyourbody #cookwithlove #cookforyourlove #prettyfood #FLAVOR #unrestrictedkitchen
Sunday brunch is a wonderful place to use left overs! This morning called for left over pork tender, grilled bell pepper, grilled artichoke, and fresh zucchini & onion to go into a hash with some red red potatoes. Over easy eggs topped it along with some fresh mint & fresh basil. Super tasty & keeps those delicious extras from going to waste!

#TBT to 4 days ago & my #meatfreemonday Cuban beans & rice with a cilantro slaw. The slaw was cool & tangy, which countered the heat -- both temperature & spicy -- of the beans & rice really nicely. I roasted a chicken for babe, since, ya know, he absolutely can't go without meat (& I couldn't figure out a substitute to dance him out on this one). Either way, super delicious, super healthy! #glutenfree #diabeticfriendly #healthy #lowcarb #lowcalorie #eatingfortheinsta #eatyourveggies #eatgreenthings #eattherainbow #eatlocal #JERF #omnomnom #yummy #foodie #foodporn #happymouth #happytummy #cookforyourlove #cookwithlove #homemade #foodphotography #ilovefood #fuelyourbody #vegan #vegetarian #summerfood #FLAVOR #unrestrictedkitchen
#tacotuesday was delicious in our home today! Today little girl turned 5 months old, & we celebrated with chipotle turkey tacos with fresh pico, citrus cilantro slaw, sauteed chayote, & refried black beans. Mine went in romain lettuce leaves & was #dairyfree , while babe went traditional with warm corn tortillas, crema, & cotija cheese. Either way, so satisfying with lots of bright & spicy flavor!

It's hot. Like, wearing a bathing suit, baby's in only a diaper, chillin in the direct path of the AC & still sweating hot. So lunch is ice cold cucumber & carrot noodles with olives tossed in cilantro vinaigrette. Bright & refreshing & super super easy, plus there's tons of water content in these guys, so it's helping me stay hydrated. #glutenfree #diabeticfriendly #healthy #lowcarb #lowcalorie #eatingfortheinsta #eatyourveggies #eatgreenthings #eattherainbow #eatlocal #JERF #omnomnom #yummy #foodie #foodporn #happymouth #happytummy #foodphotography #ilovefood #fuelyourbody #vegetarian #vegan #eatyourwater #stayinghydrated 💦 #rawfood #coodles #sunshineandlove #prettyfood #FLAVOR #unrestrictedkitchen
#TBT to carnitas enchiladas with @daiyafoods mozzarella style shreds & dairy free sour cream. Some super tasty refried black beans (so much better than pinto!) & citrus slaw on the side made this dinner so incredibly satisfying, & left overs were even better the next day! #glutenfree #diabeticfriendly #healthy #lowcarb #eatingfortheinsta #eatyourveggies #eatgreenthings #eattherainbow #eatlocal #JERF #easydinner #homemade #omnomnom #yummy #foodie #foodporn #happymouth #happytummy #foodphotography #ilovefood #comfortfood #mexicanfood #dairyfree #foodblogeats #feedfeed #carnitas #enchiladas #FLAVOR #unrestrictedkitchen
Feeling a little sentimental today, for reasons that are unknown (seriously, I have NO idea why... no sarcasm), so I decided to try to recreate one of the awesome hors d'oeuvres we had at our wedding last year & turn it into dinner. @summiteventcatering gave us incredible fried coconut shrimp then; tonight's was baked to crispy perfection & had a sweet & spicy jalapeno-orange dipping sauce & a crisp fresh salad. Super simple, super delicious, super sentimental dinner. #glutenfree #diabeticfriendly #healthy #eatingfortheinsta #eatyourveggies #eatgreenthings #eattherainbow #eatlocal #JERF #omnomnom #yummy #foodie #foodporn #happymouth #happytummy #foodphotography #ilovefood #cookwithlove #cookforyourlove #prettyfood #30minutemeals #sentimental #easydinner #foodblogeats #coconutshrimp #sweetandspicy #crispy #pescaterian #FLAVOR #unrestrictedkitchen
Took a little inspiration from @thepioneerwoman for this one...pasta with pesto & peas, but of course I tweaked it a bit. Instead of cavatappi, I used GF rotini pasta, cuz I had it. Added some shredded chicken, cuz babe "needs" meat, & upped the veggie content with the addition of some zucchini noodles, spinach in the pesto, & a teeny tiny little @oceanmistfarms organic artichoke on the side 😉 Babe got a nice sprinkling of parmesan on his, while i put some grape tomatoes on mine for a touch of sweetness & a little bit of acidity. This came out so good, & the pasta itself held true to the "16 minute meals" title.

Occasionally we're grillin' fools at our house! Chicken breasts seasoned with a dry rub of cumin, paprika, cayenne, brown sugar, dried cilantro, parsley, & house seasoning; red onion slices with a little of the same dry rub; apricots tossed in pesto; & carrots glazed with olive oil, honey, & house seasoning. All done on the grill to smokey perfection. A cool crisp salad rounded out our plates & my kitchen stayed clean!

Feeling a lil' Southern tonight, so dinner was shrimp & spicy cheesey grits with a super tasty tomato-bacon jam (see story for the bubbly goodness), roasted zucchini, & a bright cucumber/carrot slaw. The grits had roasted jalapeno, smoked gouda, smoked cheddar, & parmesan, so there was TONS of flavor & just a little bit of heat. Shrimp just got a quick saute in a touch of bacon drippings, house seasoning, cajun seasoning, & a little bit of honey. Babe didn't speak for 10 minutes & left nothing on his plate ... so I guess I did good 😂 #glutenfree #diabeticfriendly #healthy #eatingfortheinsta #eatyourveggies #eatgreenthings #eattherainbow #eatlocal #JERF #omnomnom #yummy #foodie #foodporn #happymouth #happytummy #cookforyourlove #cookwithlove #homemade #foodphotography #ilovefood #comfortfood #fuelyourbody #easydinner #southerncooking #shrimpandgrits #cheesygoodness #foodfeed #sweetandspicy #FLAVOR #unrestrictedkitchen
When it's a million degrees (ok, 115, but still) & your kitchen is clean, you might decide to get nice cool poki bowls for dinner, instead of making anything away home & subsequently turning the house into an oven. #glutenfree #diabeticfriendly #healthy #lowcarb #eatingfortheinsta #eatyourveggies #eatgreenthings #eattherainbow #eatlocal #JERF #poki #eatingout #itsfreakinhot #115degrees #gohomearizonayouredrunk #omnomnom #yummy #foodie #foodporn #happymouth #happytummy #foodphotography #ilovefood #fuelyourbody #pescaterian #colourful #prettyfood #FLAVOR #unrestrictedkitchen
It's been a crazy couple of weeks, y'all. Like, life turned upside down, quit my job kind of crazy. So im playing a bunch of catch up on posts again, starting with this gloriousness... chicken breast stuffed with brown rice, spinach, roasted red pepper, then baked with a little chicken stock & fresh tomato. Topped it with daiya mozzarella style shreds & pan sauce, & served with roasted asparagus & cauliflower & a fresh green salad. I made enough for babe to take to work, but he ended up just taking seconds at home...I guess that speaks well for the recipe 😎 #glutenfree #diabeticfriendly #healthy #eatingfortheinsta #lowcarb #eatyourveggies #eatgreenthings #eattherainbow #eatlocal #JERF #easydinner #homemade #omnomnom #yummy #foodie #foodporn #happymouth #happytummy #cookforyourlove #cookwithlove #prettyfood #foodphotography #ilovefood #fuelyourbody #stuffedchickenbreast #dairyfree #FLAVOR #unrestrictedkitchen
