Friday Favorite Finds: Soups

Can you believe it? I’ve managed to write a post every day this week — woo-hoo! I love having a schedule. Anyway, it is indeed Friday and although I haven’t participated in a while, I’m linking up with Finding Joy in My Kitchen‘s Friday Favorite Finds. Even after yesterday’s chicken stock post, I am still thinking about soup, so that’s my theme for the week.

{Friday Favorite Finds} Whole30 Recipe Ideas

It’s Friday! So that means it’s time to link up with Finding Joy in My Kitchen‘s Friday Favorite Finds. Can’t believe the last time I participated was back in March! Good grief! Anyway, I am gearing up to start Whole30 on Monday (after a gluttonous weekend of anniversary and birthday celebrations). I was describing it to Drew (who, unbeknownst to me had his in ear buds in and didn’t hear me the first time) and he was pretty intrigued. Basically, it’s 30 days of strict Paleo eating. I’ll be blogging my way through it, so you’ll read plenty about it, but in the meantime, head over to Whole9 if you’re interested in learning more.

I certainly have plenty of paleo recipes in my arsenal, but because I’m pretty liberal with the dairy, I thought this was the perfect time to share some Whole30-approved dishes! Please note, that the images in this post belong to the original blog owners.

Here are my Pinterest food finds for the week.

Spicy Tortilla Soup with Shrimp and Avocado from Cooking Light (I’ll need to leave out the hominy and the tortilla chips, obviously)

And that’s just a few! So many healthy, delicious options. While I’m a little bit nervous about 30 days without sugar, grains, legumes, alcohol, and (most of all) dairy, I can tell that my body needs a reboot because I’m having all kinds of carb cravings and I’m just not feeling on top of my game. Here’s hoping I can make it through!

Friday Favorite Finds {Green Edition}

It’s Friday! So that means it’s time to link up with Finding Joy in My Kitchen‘s Friday Favorite Finds. Please note, that the images in this post belong to the original blog owners. In addition, I am directly linking the name of the recipe to the original source so you can head right over there to get the details. Here are my Pinterest food finds for the week.

Indian Creamed Spinach from Budget Bytes – I made this recipe earlier this week and it was delicious! However, I cut the cayenne pepper down to 1/4 tsp. and it was still blazing hot (and I like heat). So if you make this, just be aware of the spice factor.

 

Kale with Apples & Onions from Paleo Parents – Kale seems to be the hot green right now (everyone’s making kale chips!), and this seems like a tasty way to cook them up.

 

Crustless Spinach and Feta Pie from Skinnytaste looks yummy, but I will have to sub out a few of those ingredients. (I will spare you from my skim milk rant…)

 

And finally, Reuben in a Bowl from Health-Bent. Does cabbage count as a green? I’m not sure. But since corned beef is a traditional St. Patty’s Day meal I felt like I should include this 🙂

It’s Friday! So that means it’s time to link up with Finding Joy in My Kitchen‘s Friday Favorite Finds. Here are my Pinterest food finds for the week. I haven’t participated in a while, but I have lots of great recipes to share this week.

Raw Mango Lime Tarts – I think these sound so yummy and refreshing! I’d love to create a raspberry version, based on this one!

 

Frozen Coconut Limeade – Can’t wait to sit on the deck this summer while sipping on one of these.

 

Cashew Chicken Lettuce Wraps – We made these one night this week and they were delicious! I added more onions and water chestnuts to the chicken, and I basically made a big salad with lettuce, shredded carrots, and scallions instead of dealing with the wraps. Definitely a keeper!

 

Spicy shrimp and Cucumber Salad with Mint, Lemon, and Cumin – This looks like a delicious light lunch!

 

Low Carb Lemon Meringue Custard – I am totally making these for Easter dessert! I don’t like crust much anyway, and this recipe gives you the best part of lemon meringue pie!

(Finally, I am including a shameless plug for my Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Banana Brownies — my kids have devoured these! They are so yummy, easy, and much healthier than a regular brownie! I hope you try them!)

Cream of Zucchini Soup

 

Guacamole Salad – How delicious would this be with some lime-grilled chicken?

 

Low Carb Peanut Butter Thumbprints

 

Egg-Free Dairy-Free Chocolate Decadence – I can’t wait to make this! It sounds too good to be true.

 

Salted Caramel Mocha – This recipe uses sugar, but I think it would be easy enough to substitute another sweetener.
