  • Spicy Peanut Soup with Sesame crusted Halloumi. I am well aware that some might find this soup very odd, but trust me on this one. It’s peanutty, a touch spicy, extra creamy, has a good amount veggies (hello to sweet potatoes + kale), and yeah, I topped it with pan-fried sesame crusted halloumi cheese too...which is KEY. It's the best salty, crispy topping. Like I said, it's different. Just try it. Promise it is GOOD. And EASY. almost vegan...but I do really recommend that cheese :) Recipe on the blog - link in profile. #hbhhealthyjanuary #almostvegan #peanutbutter
  • Herb Butter Baked Sweet Potato Fries. Perfectly crisp, extra herby, tossed in garlic butter, finished with sea salt...just a little bit addicting. So. Lunch anyone? Grab the recipe on HBH - linked in profile. #hbhhealthyjanuary #garlicbutter
  • Sheet Pan Salmon with Citrus Avocado Salsa and Potatoes. Bringing all the (winter) color and flavor with this recipe and super happy about it. Baby potatoes (addicting) + herby, citrus roasted salmon (so much flavor), topped with a tangy citrus avocado salsa (my favorite) + a little sesame seed tossed arugula too. It's kind of Cuban inspired, it's citrusy, salty, so delicious, and the easiest to throw together. And that sums it all right up. Recipe on the blog - linked in profile. #hbhhealthyjanuary #salmon
  • Chocolate Chunk Coconut Banana Bread. Truly the only banana bread recipe you really need. Comes out perfect every time, is the easiest, healthy...ish, and is (generously) swirled with chocolate chunks. Major bonus points if you enjoy this with a little smear of butter and a drizzle of honey. Promise, it's a good idea. Especially late night :) recipe linked in profile. #recipevideo #bananabread
