The theme of todays post should probably be titled:

You can take the girl out of the midwest, but you can’t take the midwest out of the girl 😉

AKA I love ranch dressing with my whole heart and I don’t care who knows it.

And I’m guessing that if you’re reading this you also love ranch, and you’re probably also looking for a healthier option than the store bought stuff. And guess what – I’m ALSO down with a healthier homemade ranch because eating the foods you love doesn’t have to mean sacrificing your standards.

Basically what I’m trying to say is that I’ve 100% got you covered.

Fried eggs + salad = pretty much every weekend breakfast for me ever.

Okay maybe not every one ever… (case in point – I do sometimes go for pancakes, too). But it is my go-to, tried and true breakfast for whenever I have more time than to make a smoothie or grab a couple of hard boiled eggs.

So every Friday when I stock up my refrigerator for the weekend I alllllways make sure I have eggs and salad ingredients. It’s seriously the easiest most versatile breakfast that I am never not in the mood for. It’s healthy, quick, and very delicious (<– the most important things).

And while I don’t usually like to tell people what to do, I definitely think you guys should give the formula a try this weekend 😉 The beauty of it is in the delicious simplicity. Salad of your favorite seasonal ingredients + fried eggs is an equation that never tastes bad.

We made it! Somehow it’s already March – I mean, thank goodness! This is always the time of year where I am just SO ready for spring weather.

If you’re like me, your head and your heart are all in on those warmer days and lovely spring produce, but your pantry is still stocked with hearty winter vegetables like beets, cabbage, potatoes and onions. Still. The same ones that have been on repeat for the last 3 months.

In all fairness, these vegetables really are an incredible way to nourish our bodies during the colder months. You know, that whole eating with the seasons thing really does have a purpose. And while heartier winter veggies usually end up roasted, caramelized, and sautéed, there’s nothing wrong with switching it up a little bit! This potato salad will help you channel some of that warm weather longing and turn it into a dish that hints at what is (surely!) just around the corner.
