Short on time but looking to get festive in the kitchen this morning? Wake up your taste buds to this festive egg dish in the morning and your day will be anything but ordinary. We call for enchilada sauce here, so either make it from the Rolodex and meal plan another meal this week that needs it (or freeze the leftovers) or if you have to buy some, make sure it has a very clean ingredient list.
Don't disregard this simple recipe, just because of the ingredient list! It is full of FRESH ingredients and simple to make, we promise! Your life will change with this recipe! It is like a summertime flavor-bomb explosion in your mouth. Laap is a traditional meal served in Laos and FULL of fresh ingredients. This recipe was first discovered in Food & Wine magazine and we made a few spins on the recipe to keep it simple to make. You will want to double this recipe because it makes for some AMAZING leftovers!
We love the unexpected topper of this salmon dish with our homemade avocado salsa! Salmon is already full of protein and heart healthy fats. The avocado adds in even more heart healthy fat, nearly the alphabet's worth of vitamins (A, B, C, E, and K), folate, protein, and a boost of fiber. We love the contrast of creamy avocado, the crunch of the red onions, and the tender salmon underneath.
This is a fabulous meal to make on the grill and enjoy with loved ones. Full of tropical flavors, it is sure to make you feel like you are on a sandy beach! Pairs well with cauli rice or served next to a salad. We've adapted this from Emeril at Food Network. Another option if you aren't into or are allergic to mango is to create the salsa using pineapple instead, which will stay in line with the tropical inspiration of these fish tacos.
Moscow Mule's seem to be the drink of the times right now, so we couldn't help but to try and put a fresh and healthy spin on this refreshing cocktail. In this recipe, you are making your own gingerale in essence and will have extra ginger water on hand. You can always omit the alcohol to make this a delightful "mocktail" as well.
Lettuce is the ultimate wrap and works in almost any place you would use a traditional bun or wrap. These can also be made with traditional rice paper, just make sure to soak and soften the rice paper before rolling. The sky is the limit on what you can add into these summer rolls, but here is a great recipe to begin with. These taste amazing dipped in our Insanely Good Stir Fry Sauce, or the Thai Chicken Salad dressing.
Is there anything better than a big, ripe, juicy peach on a summer afternoon? We sure don’t think so! So with that on the brain, we were looking for a way to add even more jazz to the Epic Fish Tacos. Needless to say, an amazing batch of peach salsa was whipped up as an impromptu topping…what a game changer! It was easy as can be, and literally tastes good on everything from tacos to nachos to salads to meat.
This is a great side dish to bring to a party or enjoy with a meal. It is super simple to make and the flavor is enhanced the longer it rests in the dressing. If you are not a fan of spicy, simply omit the hot sauce. This works great as a base to any type of salad. Feel free to add any other ingredients you have on hand such as cashews, bell pepper, corn and more!
TGIF! Here at VFit Squad, we are all about BALANCE! And yes, sometimes that includes a cocktail or two! But there’s no reason to pass up an opportunity to cut down on sugar and other yucky additives that are harmful for the body and make your hangovers even more painful. Try this recipe for a sparkling, skinny gimlet – just in time for the weekend.
This is a hearty and healthy bowl you can throw together for lunch or dinner. The dressing is out of this world, so be sure to make extra to use throughout your week. If you would like to make a grain free version, sub out the quinoa for cauli rice. This also tastes great with a fried egg added on top or you can sub any protein of your choice for the chicken.
