A simple yet nutritious salad with basic ingredients for a dressing, can make a delicious, tasty meal and still fit into a cleanse protocol. This salad takes me back to where Simply Healthy Eats all started.  I’d been fretting about not having things to eat after starting a cleanse protocol to eliminate my food sensitivities …
Nothing says summer to me like fresh melons.  As a child, I remember eating heirloom variety watermelons on the back porch of my grandmother’s house.  Of course, no one called them heirloom watermelons back then.  They were just watermelons grown from seeds that had been in the family for generations.  I can still remember the …

One of the reasons why Simply Healthy Eats started was to share our easy, yet healthy recipes and this guac is no exception.  It comes together quickly and tastes comparable to  another made all from fresh ingredients.  It certainly makes guacamole a snap and keeps to our simple and healthy label.

 Surprise your summer guests with this delightful dish.  We did, then snacked on this appetizer while we waited for the rest of the meal to come off the grill.  And it didn’t fill us up like a regular pizza.  It’s a great appetizer, snack or even a light dessert. We had a small group of …
a taco filling made from cauliflower and lentils is a delicious vegetarian treat
While looking for something healthy to prepare for a small group that would be dining at my house, I found this recipe for Cauliflower-Lentil Tacos with Fresh Guacamole.  The recipe was originally posted by Jason Andrew Wrobel of the show “How to Live to 100.” Since we have been cooking and experimenting with lentils, we had …
I got this recipe from Jennifer who got it from Denise who got it from…. You get the idea.   I’m sure it’s probably floating around somewhere on the internet, but I wanted to share it here.  This dip is a simple recipe that comes together quickly.  The most work is involved in chopping up …
This recipe is not entirely original.  In fact, this recipe was found at Happy Healthy Mama as an accompaniment to an awesome Sweet White Bean Apple Dip Recipe which can be found here. I found this recipe during a frantic search for a dairy free fruit dip for an event that was scheduled for less …
