5-ingredient grilled peach arugula salad // cait's plate

I’ve been dying all summer to make this salad.  Peaches have just been incredible this season – so perfectly juicy and sweet.

I absolutely love grilling fruit in the summer and I’m ashamed to say that this salad is the first time that I actually go around to doing it.  But boy was it a good time to start.

I originally contemplated just throwing some fresh peaches over the top of this salad without bothering to grill them…

And let’s be honest, that would’ve been delicious in its own right, but grilling these guys was worth the little bit of extra effort.  They got an almost tart taste to them upon grilling and made the whole salad feel full of so much more flavor.

Speaking of flavor, if you’ve never tried the arugula-avocado-walnut-feta-peach combination you absolutely have to.  They work perfectly together.

Another reason to love this salad?  It provides fiber, protein, healthy fats, vitamins and minerals all in one easy to pull together dish!

6-ingredient healthy breakfast tacos // cait

Corn tortillas have just been doing it for me this summer.  I’ve been using them non-stop.  I’ve always liked them, but prior to this summer I was more a whole wheat tortilla girl. But no longer. To me, corn just adds a little more flavor and takes the whole taco eating experience a level higher.  […]

weekly eats while on the road // cait

I thought it would be fun/interesting to share my weekly eats this week even despite being on vacation because I’m often asked how I manage to stay healthy while away from my kitchen. As you’ll see in the photos, despite not being able to make the majority of my meals, I do my best to […]

easy roasted chickpeas - a packable, protein-packed snack perfect for back to school! // cait

Reality is officially setting in and I can no longer deny that soon enough I’ll be back to school. For me back to school doesn’t signify the joy that it did as a kid (or even a college student!) but rather it gets my wheels turning for fast, easy and packable meals and snacks. The […]

lime-infused grilled chicken, spinach, tomato and cheese quesadillas // cait

For some reason I always forget about quesadillas. It’s funny too because I almost always have at least the most basic ingredients in my house for them. Like corn tortillas and shredded white meat chicken. And limes and avocado and greek yogurt. While all of the above items are delicious on their own, they’re even better […]

chocolate peanut butter green smoothie // cait

This is officially the summer of green smoothies for me. Ever since learning how to actually make my green smoothies green, I can’t help but default to them. To me there’s nothing better than getting a heaping serving of greens first thing in the morning.  There’s just something that feels so good about knowing you’re […]

whole grain granola muffins // cait

I love crumbled muffins over greek yogurt with fruit. Is that weird? I don’t think I’ve ever really thought about it until now…as I’m typing this I’m realizing that maybe it’s not a usual combination? The yogurt/muffin combination actually saved muffins for me.  I’ve always loved muffins but I’ve never been that person that can […]

In talking with people about eating well, one of the main things I often hear from them is that they’re just too busy.  They can’t find the time to prepare satisfying meals at home so they just grab something out. Something that I believe so strongly in is the fact that you absolutely can eat […]
