asian pear and walnut salad with maple mustard vinaigrette
Say helloooo to your new favorite fall salad!
This one is a straight up GEM, you guys.
Tender greens, crisp and sweet asian pears (currently OBSESSED), crunchy toasted walnuts, bright and colorful pomegranate seeds and OF COURSE a most delicious maple mustard vinaigrette made with apple cider vinegar for those extra fall vibes.
This salad not only seriously crave-able but also so so good for you.
Because even though the temps are dropping I have zero plans to stop eating salad.
Ohhh hi guys!!! I’m back with another tasty snack recipe for you today! Why is this so exciting? Because I’m a firm believer that the world could always use another tasty snack. A snack so good that it forces you stop doing whatever it is you’re doing and pay attention to all the happy things that are happening on your taste buds. These tasty spiced snack nuts are 100% that snack.
I feel like this time of year there’s just so many opportunities for delicious snacks. There’s football games, movies nights (👋🏼 4:30 pm sunset!), Thanksgiving, Christmas, games nights, potlucks, etc etc etc.
We are officially in snacking season. Also known as I’m going to need to amp up my yoga routine season 😂 But really, I have no guilt about enjoying clean and tasty snacks. Snacks that really give you that moment of pure chill + bliss and FEEL indulgent without actually having a lot of junky ingredients in them.
I actually decided to create this simple little recipe for these snacking nuts after developing something of an addiction to some spiced nuts from the bulk foods section at our natural food store. They are seriously so good and it got to the point where I couldn’t walk out without a little bag of them for my drive home, even if I already had some at home from my last shopping trip 🙄
The ingredients were not so totally horrible, but there were a few extra things in there that I’m not always too keen on including in my diet – canola oil and maltodextrin being the two main ones (WHY IS PROCESSED CORN IN EVERYTHING?!)
So I decided to give roasting + spicing my own nuts a try, and they turned out EVEN BETTER than the grocery store version. Boy byeeeeeee.
Oh man! Feeling out of practice with this whole blog post writing thing. Since starting a ketosis protocol a week and a couple days ago, that has pretty much been my life. Planning, cooking, yoga, and a general turning inwards. Pretty awesome actually. I’ve also been making and shooting a fair amount of recipes, but the blog post writing (also known as the piece of this project that always takes up the largest chunk of time and energy), has not made the to do list cut. BUUUT! Fluffy grain free pancakes with fresh figs and whipped cream are just too damn good to keep from you guys any longer.
So here we go. It may be a brief post (with maybe a few too many pictures – bc who doesn’t love a generous stack of pancakes piled high with all the good things) but it’s going to be a good one.
