COPYCAT CHIPOTLE BURRITO BOWL — Copycat Chipotle Burrito Bowls that taste just like your favorite takeout from Chipotle Mexican Grill! Complete with protein, rice, and topping options, this post includes everything you need to make the absolute best burrito bowls!

Special Diet Note: Make it low-carb or paleo by swapping out the regular rice for cauliflower rice.

Prep Ahead: Any portion of the burrito bowls can be made up to 4 days ahead of time, except for the guacamole.

Substitutions: Follow the suggestions in the post to substitute carne asada or carnitas for chicken.


FARRO SALAD WITH FETA – One of my favorite types of recipes to create are ones that are nutritious, also tasty. (Yes, it’s possible.) This farro salad is precisely that — totally delicious AND nourishing! It might seem like there’s a lot going on here, but this salad can go from zero to in your face in under 30 minutes.

Special Diet Note: Recipe can easily be made gluten free by using wild rice instead of farro. Omit the feta if dairy is an issue.

Prep Ahead: The grains can be made ahead of time if you like.

Substitutions: Swap out the kale for another sturdy green like chard or napa cabbage. If you don’t like cilantro, try using parsley or basil in the dressing.


SEAFOOD CORN CHOWDER — You’ll love this light summer soup with shrimp, sole, fresh corn, and a splash of cream. A lightened up chowder recipe that is so refreshing and delicious! 

Special Diet Note: This recipe is gluten-free, high-protein, and can easily be made dairy-free.

Prep Ahead: The chowder is best when served within 2 days so I don’t recommend making it far in advance.

Substitutions: Make it dairy-free by swapping out the cream for full-fat coconut milk.


GRILLED VEGETABLE AND CHICKEN SALAD — This versatile summer salad is a mixture of grilled and fresh vegetables, easy rotisserie chicken, and a light garlic-lemon vinaigrette! Swap out any veggies for ones you prefer. It’s a great way to use up some fresh garden veggies!

Special Diet Note: This recipe is paleo if you omit the corn.

Prep Ahead: Vegetables can be prepped and everything can be grilled ahead of time if you need to.

Substitutions: This is my favorite summertime clean out the fridge meal! Use whatever produce you have on hand – both things that can be grilled and things that are good raw.


MEDITERRANEAN SALMON SALAD — This recipe with canned salmon, avocado, red onion, sun-dried tomatoes, and dill is a creamy, wildly flavorful protein-rich meal. Eat it as is or serve it up as a green salad on top of spring greens or sandwich for an amazing meal.

Special Diet Note: Paleo, keto, and whole30.

Prep Ahead: This salad is best when served fresh due to the avocado. If you decide to make it ahead of time, dice up the avocado and add it in just before eating it.

Substitutions: Mix in some kalamata olives, artichoke hearts, kapers, or any fresh vegetables like cherry tomatoes, celery, grated carrots, etc.


GRILLED EGGPLANT STACKS — This is a unicorn recipe! It’s easy, quick (even quicker if you make the macadamia ricotta ahead of time), doesn’t require an oven/stove (yay, summer grilling!), and is paleo, low-carb/keto, AND vegan.

Special Diet Note: This recipe is paleo, vegan, and low carb friendly!

Prep Ahead: Make sure to soak your macadamia nuts to quickly make the dairy free ricotta.

Substitutions: If dairy isn’t an issue for you, feel free to use regular ricotta mixed with garlic, Parmesan (instead of nutritional yeast), and salt indicated in the recipe. 


ALMOND FLOUR STRAWBERRY CRUMBLE — Serve this Almond Flour Strawberry Crumble with vanilla ice cream for an incredible dessert that is bound to be a family favorite! Grain-free, refined sugar-free, dairy-free, and vegan, this super simple strawberry crisp requires zero baking experience.

Special Diet Note: Paleo friendly, grain-free, vegan, and dairy-free.

Prep Ahead: This crumble saves relatively well, so the whole recipe can be made up to 4 days in advance.

Substitutions: Swap out the strawberries for any other kind of berry. See the blog post for more fruit crumble options.
