Cauliflower Rice Bowl

Posted by Angie Dye
Tags: Vegetarian,Gluten Free

Occasionally, we aren't in the mood for a salad, but we still want a recipe with a lot of vegetables. This recipe has all the delicious flavors of a standard rice bowl, but can be prepared much more quickly. It also packs more fiber and vitamins than bowls made with a traditional rice base.

Candied Pecans

Posted by Angie Dye
Tags: Vegetarian,Gluten Free,Dairy Free

Candied pecans are extremely easy to make and can be enjoyed as a festive holiday snack or even a salad topping. They also make excellent homemade gifts. If you are concerned about the added sugar, there are several other recipes that use monk fruit or zero calorie sweeteners. Although, we have tried those recipes and did not find them nearly as satisfying.

Nice Christmas Mice

Posted by Angie Dye
Tags: Vegetarian,Gluten Free

This is a Christmas classic in my family. The adults love them and the kids are so excited to eat the "mice." These are great one to make with the kids, a spouse or friends! The trick to making nice mice is putting your baking pan or surface of choice in the freezer before you begin the preparation process. Keep the mice in the freezer until serving.

The best thing about leftover potatoes from Thanksgiving festivities? These PANCAKES! Even as a kid mashed potato pancakes had my heart. Perfect for a weekend brunch with your family. Or you can even use this quick recipe to make mashed potatoes the night before (https://thesaltymarshmallow.com/instant-pot-mashed-potatoes/)

Cheesy Artichoke Chicken

Posted by Angie Dye
Tags: Gluten Free

The secret ingredient in this recipe is the cottage cheese. Even if you dislike cottage cheese, it blends perfectly with these other ingredients. This dish is creamy, delicious and easy to cook. We recommend using shredded chicken for this recipe. But if you don't eat meat, it can definitely be left out.

Beefy Mozzarella Instant Pot Soup

This hearty soup is perfect for a cold evening. We like to enjoy ours with the same wine used in the recipe. Note: In order to keep this recipe on the healthier side, try to pick a lean ground beef.

Skillet Enchiladas

Posted by Angie Dye
Tags: Gluten Free

The easiest way to put together this delicious skillet is to pre-cook and shred chicken on the weekend! I love this quick instant pot chicken recipe that cooks chicken perfectly straight from the freezer (https://amindfullmom.com/instant-pot-chicken-breasts/). I also love to make this dish and have enough leftovers for lunch meal prep the rest of the week.

Turkey Pumpkin Meatballs with Butternut Squash Noodles

Posted by Angie Dye
Tags: Gluten Free

Both beans and turkey come together to double the protein and fiber. The subtle sweetness of the brown sugar paired with the cinnamon brings the pumpkin flavor to life. I love the consistency of these meatballs and the butternut squash noodles really dress up this fall-themed meal.

Jack-o-Lantern Sage & Sausage Soup

Posted by Angie Dye
Tags: Gluten Free,Dairy Free

I could eat this soup all year long. It is definitely fall captured in a bowl. The sage sausage makes this soup. If you are not a fan of Jimmy Dean's sausage feel free to make your own, but do not forget the sage! This is a colorful dish loaded with veggies and flavor.

Pumpkin Hummus

Posted by Angie Dye
Tags: Vegetarian,Gluten Free,Dairy Free

I love spreading this hummus on quesadillas for extra protein and dipping my veggies in this fall-themed hummus. For a lazy version, buy your favorite store made hummus and mix in pureed pumpkin. Although I must confess, homemade hummus is tastier!

Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread (Gluten Free)

Posted by Angie Dye
Tags: Vegetarian,Gluten Free

This gooey masterpiece is amazing right out of the fridge with a cup of milk or tea. Substitute a plant-based milk, like soymilk, to make this a vegan friendly treat. And don't forget the chocolate chunks. This recipe isn't the same without them.

Spaghetti Squash with Meat Sauce

Posted by Angie Dye
Tags: Gluten Free,Dairy Free

A fall favorite and a great way to sneak in extra vegetables. This is a quick and easy meal that will be sure to please you and the whole family. For a quicker version you can buy jar sauce; however, this sauce recipe will take your spaghetti to the next level.

Homemade Peanut Sauce

Posted by Angie Dye
Tags: Vegan,Vegetarian,Gluten Free,Dairy Free

An easy homemade peanut sauce can take any stir-fry from boring to drool-worthy. We love to combine this easy peanut sauce while our veggies and rice are cooking. The following serving size is for one, but feel free to quadruple for a family-sized portion.

Homemade Balsamic Dressing

Posted by Angie Dye
Tags: Vegan,Vegetarian,Gluten Free,Dairy Free

This dressing is a light flavorful blend made up of only 6 ingredients. We like to keep a jar of this balsamic dressing in the refrigerator at home and at work. Make sure to shake it before you add it to your salad or veggies. This dressing is good for at least a week, but we doubt it will last that long because you will enjoy it so much.

Chipotle Mayo

Posted by Angie Dye
Tags: Gluten Free,Dairy Free

Mayo adds a creamy flavor to just about any dish. Many people like mayonnaise on their sandwiches or burgers, but it is also great when added to chicken salad, egg salad, coleslaw, or tuna salad. This homemade mayo is only five ingredients and tastes even better than the store-bought stuff. Mayonnaise can be tricky for some to make, so be sure to follow the recipe carefully. Note: Homemade mayo lasts in the fridge for 4-5 days.

Spring Rolls

Posted by Angie Dye
Tags: Gluten Free,Dairy Free

Looking for a fun date night or a hands-on activity with the kids? How about veggie rolls prepped for this week's lunches? These rolls are a simple way to add color and vegetables in your diet. After all, rich colored vegetables are packed with phytochemicals, phytonutrients, and antioxidants that help your body fight inflammation, prevent disease and guard you against illness. The homemade ginger, chili, the lime sauce add a refreshing and zingy flavor to these spring rolls.

Magical Green Papaya Salad

Posted by Angie Dye
Tags: Gluten Free,Dairy Free

I was finally able to save money and make one of my favorite Thai dishes come to life. I bring you a tasty green papaya salad. Green papaya, as used in this recipe, is unripe papaya. These dark green gems can often be found at Asian markets and sometimes even your local supermarket. Make sure that the papaya you choose is VERY firm and a dark green. The unripe papaya has a jicama texture and an incredible flavor you will have to experience for yourself!

Quinoa Fruit Salad

Posted by Angie Dye
Tags: Vegan,Vegetarian,Gluten Free,Dairy Free

The most refreshing breakfast, morning/afternoon pick me up or even dessert! For this fruit salad I tried to get local fruit from my near my farmers market and whatever I had spotted on sale at the store. This is one of my personal favorite summer mason jars and the beauty in this recipe is that you can use any fruit in your jar. I challenge you to visit your local farmers market and pick up a fruit that is in season near you for you mason jar fruit salad!

Chickpea Pasta Salad

Posted by Angie Dye
Tags: Vegan,Vegetarian,Gluten Free,Dairy Free

This recipe is great served hot or cold, so don't be afraid to pour it onto a plate and heat it up. It’s also cost effective, colorful, and quick. We also love using frozen vegetables for this recipe because they tend to be a little easier on the stomach before workouts. To save time, use a store bought balsamic vinaigrette.

Mediterranean Mason Jar Tuna Salad

Posted by Angie Dye
Tags: Gluten Free,Dairy Free

The tough thing with tuna salad is sometimes the tuna flavor consumes the entire dish and all vegetables lose their flavor and take on a tuna taste. I enjoy my tuna salad when I feel it tastes multidimensional. I love a salad that offers a wide array of flavors. Packing this recipe into a jar allows me to enjoy all flavors of the dish. Another light summer recipe perfect for on the go.

Americanized Burmese Mason Jar Salad

Posted by Angie Dye
Tags: Gluten Free,Dairy Free

Mason jar salads are great for on-the-go meals. Once you are ready to eat, shake it up and enjoy. The base of this salad is cabbage, which is rich in phytonutrient antioxidants including Vitamin C and K, as well as a good source of b-vitamins. We hope you enjoy this light and refreshing salad with a delicious crunch.

Vegan Cocoa Maca Recovery Smoothie

Posted by Angie Dye
Tags: Vegan,Vegetarian,Gluten Free,Dairy Free

Summer is officially here, and for me this means a lot more time on long bikes and runs in the Pennsylvania heat. I am not always hungry after a long workout, but know that my body needs easily absorbed nutrients to help me recover and get me ready for the next training session. This smoothie has been a post-workout staple for a long time because of it's delicious taste, ease of preparation and guaranteed cool down effects. The maca root in this recipe lends a carmel-ly, butterscotch-y flavor and this little Peruvian adaptogen can help with athletic recovery and boost mental function. Feel free to use whatever protein you enjoy, but I like to use plant-based protein and find it mixes really well with frozen banana. Adding a handful of spinach does not change the taste at all, but is a great way to incorporate a veggie right after a workout. I hope you enjoy this staple recovery smoothie as much as I do!

Secret Ingredient Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie Bowl

Posted by Angie Dye
Tags: Vegetarian

Do you try to include veggies in your smoothies? I'm a big fan of adding a handful of spinach or kale in almost any smoothie, but a lot of my clients don't enjoy adding greens. I'm always looking for new and interesting ways to help my athletes add more plant food to their meals and blending them into smoothies is a very easy way to do it. This smoothie bowl recipe includes a veggie that until recently, I would have never believed was smoothy-worthy: frozen riced cauliflower. It sounds a little crazy, but the frozen cauliflower pairs really nicely with the bananas & PB in this recipe and helps to create the thick, creamy texture. Adding the protein powder makes the carbohydrate to protein ratio ideal for post-workout, but it is so yummy it can be enjoyed anytime.

Matcha Pick Me Up

Posted by Angie Dye
Tags: Vegan,Vegetarian,Gluten Free,Dairy Free

What is matcha? It is a caffeinated, powdered form of green tea that can be added to smoothies, milk, or other recipes for consumption. This particular smoothie recipe is great for a morning or early afternoon pick me up. If you like the taste of green tea, this smoothie recipe will surely please you. It is similar to a Starbucks green tea frappuccino or green tea ice cream, but this recipe is packed with more nutrients and less sugar. This makes it less heavy and more refreshing before a workout. Add less milk if you would like to make this a thick smoothie bowl today.

Mex Tofu Dip

Posted by Angie Dye

Share this protein packed dip with your family and friends and I doubt they will guess the secret ingredient: Tofu! One block of tofu = 20-25g of protein!

Rainbow Salmon Plate

Posted by Angie Dye
Tags: Gluten Free,Dairy Free

Sometimes we become so consumed with the newest fad diet or what we need to eat to perform faster that we forget the basics. This rainbow salmon plate will surely bring you back to simple, tasty food. With this recipe, I did my best to buy local produce so paired with my salmon is the beautiful locally grown Okinawa sweet potato, big island baby cucumbers, and locally grown cherry tomatoes. A locally sourced and colorful balanced plate. Sometimes the best way to come up with a meal is to add color and ensure you have a carb, fat, and protein source on your plate. Simple is easy and tasty too! This is one of my personal favorite lunches, I love cold salmon.

Hemp Heart Power Salad

Posted by Angie Dye
Tags: Vegetarian,Gluten Free

Are you looking for a fresh and light lunch? Both spinach and beets are fantastic foods for athletes because they are both high in nitrates, which are converted to nitric oxide in our bodies and help with blood flow and blood pressure, optimizing stamina in our workouts. Another secret ingredient in this salad is hemp hearts, which provide plant-based omega-3 fats, fiber and protein, along with a delicious nutty taste.

Zucchini Chocolate-Chip Muffins

Yes, zucchini and chocolate all in one muffin. Some days I forget to get enough vegetables (oops), these muffins are perfect for sneaking in more green into your diet.

Banana Macnut Muffins

Posted by Angie Dye
Tags: Vegetarian,Gluten Free

Did you know that Macadamia nuts are hand-picked? This is pretty incredible considering roughly 50 million pounds of macadamia nuts are hand-picked from Hawai'i each year. Knowing this gives us a greater appreciation for this creamy and flavorful nut. We like to make these muffins for breakfast, but if you want them for dessert be sure to add chocolate chips.

Mixed Eggplant Pan

Posted by Angie Dye
Tags: Vegan,Vegetarian,Gluten Free,Dairy Free

Eggplant can have a bad reputation for its squishy texture and unpleasant taste! Well, I'm here to tell you that 3 out of 5 of my roommates who once avoided eggplant loved and approved of this easy to make veggie bake. This bright purple vegetable is packed with potassium, vitamin C, folate, and vitamin K. Add variety into your diet by adding this baked veggie pan to your meal. This is one of my go-to recipes for sneaking in eggplant for those who dislike eggplant. When preparing the vegetable you can choose to decrease the fiber by removing some or all of the skin. I personally like to leave the skin on. Let us know what you think by tagging #Bauccoeggplant in your creation!

Quick Lemon Dill Wahoo

Posted by Angie Dye
Tags: Gluten Free,Dairy Free

Here in Hawai'i Wahoo fish is also called Ono! ?Ono in Hawaiian translates to "delicious." This quick instant pot recipe was just as delicious as it was easy to prepare. I started with frozen fish and ~20-25 min later the fish was plated and ready to savor! I served my fish with a side of basmati rice and a spinach salad tossed with poppyseed dressing, grapes, lemon juice, and almonds.

3-Bean Veggie Chili

Posted by Angie Dye
Tags: Vegan,Vegetarian,Gluten Free,Dairy Free

This veggie chili really does cook itself. We are not sure an easier crockpot recipe exists. It is a great way to introduce a hearty, satisfying, meatless meal to even the biggest carnivore. One of our favorite meals (pictured here) is a baked sweet potato, topped with sautéed greens, a generous ladle of this chili, and some avocado slices.

Stuffed Peppers

Posted by Angie Dye
Tags: Gluten Free

At the beginning of every week, I like to have 1-2 cups of rice made to add to my breakfast, lunch, or dinner. This is super helpful for when I make stuffed peppers for lunch because I already have rice made to add to my recipe! I like to make my stuffed peppers with ground beef especially during hard training periods when I want to ensure I am getting enough iron. After all, iron is responsible for transferring oxygen throughout your body and beef contains the easiest to absorb version of iron.

Sweet and Savory Snack Mix

Posted by Angie Dye
Tags: Vegan,Vegetarian,Gluten Free,Dairy Free

One of the most frequent questions we get as dietitians is about snack food. Many athletes feel hunger hitting around 10 AM or 2 PM. What should you do, ignore it or head to the vending machine? Hunger should be honored. If your tummy is growling it is time for a snack! Fuel your machine even if it's not meal-time. Here is a light, fun, and tasty snack that will bring you back to your childhood. Perfect for post-workout snack as well. Packed with protein and you dictate the taste. Snacks do not have to be fancy or perfect, but being prepared is way better than feeling hangry!

If that describes you, prepping these breakfast sandwiches is the perfect solution. You will end up saving time and money with this recipe. These Eggcellent Muffins are very filling with a great balance of carbs, fat, and protein.

Eggs & Kraut

Posted by Angie Dye
Tags: Gluten Free,Dairy Free

Eggs and sauerkraut are a magical combo with a protein + probiotic boost. Add a strip of bacon to really send this breakfast over the top. Depending on where you are at in your training cycle, you may want to include more carbohydrate. We suggest a slice of toast, a cup of sweet potatoes, or a cup of fruit to provide additional carbohydrates.

Prebiotic Power Bowl with Chimichurri Sauce

Posted by Angie Dye
Tags: Vegetarian,Gluten Free,Dairy Free

Having plants play an important role in your meals is a great way to improve your digestive health and help your body to recover from all of your training. In this Prebiotic Power Bowl, we show you how to incorporate prebiotics into an easy meal that works for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Almost all veggies contain prebiotics, but onions, garlic and asparagus that we use in this recipe are some of the higher dietary sources. Dandelion greens are particularly good sources, but hard to find in Central PA in the winter, so we used baby kale and spinach instead. This is a great way to use up any leftover veggies you may have on hand and top with your favorite protein for a meal that fuels your training and tastes delicious. Make a big batch of quinoa and the delicious chimichurri sauce at the beginning of the week and you have the building blocks for a restaurant-quality meal in a few minutes anytime all week.

Probiotic Kimchi Tacos

Posted by Angie Dye
Tags: Gluten Free,Dairy Free

I enjoy trying new things and here in Hawai'i kimchi is becoming increasingly popular. Kimchi, also spelled kimchee, is a popular Korean dish made of fermented cabbage and radishes soaked in a red chili sauce and a combination of spices. Kimchi can be found in the refrigerated section of the grocery store, although, this probiotic filled food is also easy to make at home. The distinct flavor from the fermented cabbage and radishes give this taco recipe a delicious and exciting twist! The following recipe makes 8 tacos.
