Annamarie from The Domestic Badass (love the name of her blog btw) has shared with us a yummy and healthy dinner recipe that can be whipped up in a jiff.

A pan seared tilapia served over garlic sauteed spinach and mashed potatoes, topped with a tomato and kalamata olive ragout. It’s very flavorful and good for you (so you don’t have to feel that guilty about eating the potatoes 😉 It’s also super easy and quick to prepare.

Rustic Peach & Honey Pies – Gluten Free

Rustic Peach Honey Pie

Farmers markets are a way of life here in Seattle. Over the past three years, I’ve seen farmers retire and small vendors grow successful businesses that began in a simple market stall. It’s a wonderful thing to see a community that puts their dollars towards supporting local producers and farmers. I do my best to visit at least one farmers market a week, so I’m very happy to start sharing fun eats I develop with my haul of fresh foods.

On Friday evenings, the Phinney Farmers Market http://www.seattlefarmersmarkets.org/markets/phinney] is one of my favorite ways to wind down from a long work week and ease into the weekend. This smaller, but well stocked, neighborhood market is filled with fresh fruits and vegetables, homemade granola, locally made cheese, and ready to eat foods. To make this special treat, I picked up Sugartime peaches from Collins Orchards http://www.collinsfamilyorchards.com/index.php] and some local honey from Seattle Urban Honey http://www.seattleurbanhoney.blogspot.com], which by the way is just about the best honey I’ve ever had.


Whether you call this a tart, a galette, or otherwise – it’s simply a pie crust folded over the edges of some fruit, so rustic pie sounds about right to me. Aside from the butter, this pie isn’t filled with too many indulgent ingredients. I’m in the process of decreasing my refined sugar intake and peaches are just about sweet enough on their own. Adding just a small drizzle of honey to each pie gave a sweet boost of flavor as well.

Peanut Butter Cup Protein Shake

Peanut Butter Cup Protein Shake

Protein shakes are really good to have, especially after a workout. For months, I have just had the regular powder in some water, and it can be not as satisfying as I would like.

Until, I came upon this recipe for a peanut butter cup protein shake. It is so delish and satisfies my sweet tooth and surprisingly really tastes like a Peanut Butter Cup! It also doesn’t add too many more calories, which I am all about!

Almond Crusted Halibut – Clean Eating

halibut

 

I have been on a low-carb kick, and the great thing about this recipe is that it fits into lots of clean eating categories; paleo, gluten free, and low carb. I made myself 6 ounces, but you can absolutely cut the ounces in half and have 3 ounces, but I was one hungry girl.


I love halibut and this is the first time I have actually made it on my own and it was flaky and delicious. I was also craving some crunch, and I thought the almonds would be the perfect fix.

To make this a  low carb recipe, it was something I couldn’t’ figure out. All the recipes I found had flour in it, and that doesn’t work for me. So I had to get creative and cross my fingers that the almonds would not fall off during cooking. I was super pleased with the results and almost all the almonds stayed on perfectly and without any flour!
