When temperatures drop, chilis and soups shouldn’t be your only go-tos. The Thai-inspired Tomato, Coconut Shrimp I’m sharing with you today is a fall favorite of mine. It’s perfect alone or served over rice–white, brown, jasmine or cauliflower, you pick. This dish is not only warming and satisfying, but also lean and clean.
As you probably guessed, this chili is a Giada De Laurentiis original recipe. I’m a big fan because I’m always on the hunt for meal prep-friendly recipes that are simple, mess-free and filling. While chili is my usual go-to, it’s not exactly a meal I crave on hot summer days. That is, until I found this recipe.
If you know me, you know I have an affinity for subscription boxes. From Ipsy and Birchbox to Factor 75 and Plated–I’ve tried them all and I feel some type of way for them all. When it comes to home chef type boxes, Sun Basket is definitely my favorite.
Collagen, collagen, collagen. Everyone is talking about collagen these days. I first learned about collagen protein from my trainer who suggested it when I asked for a post-gym supplement. I did a quick Google search and found that collagen promotes healthy joints, hair, skin and nails. SOLD!
If you’re reading this post and don’t have a slow cooker, STOP and order one from Amazon immediately. Seriously — they’re game changers. Meal prep? Hassle free. Queso dip? Easy. Shredded chicken? Even easier. Carne con Papa? Tambien! Slow cookers literally do it all and require very little in return.
The sun finally made an appearance in CHIMERA, aka Chicago, and people are FLIPPING OUT. Brunch parties, potlucks and tons of day drinking are otw. So if you’re in search of a signature potluck item that’s simple, delicious and easily turned vegetarian, then plz keep reading.
I started making chili when I first moved from Miami to Chicago, and the novelty of it never wore off. In my past life, I only ate chili on the rare occasion it dipped below 60 in South Florida. However, the Midwest taught me there are countless ways to tailor and incorporate chili into your diet — regardless of temperature or dietary restrictions.
After spending three weeks away from home, I felt myself yearning to be back in MY kitchen. I emphasize MY because there’s something special about a person’s very own kitchen. The mismatched pans, the collection of knives and colorful bowls, they all carry a story. In this case, a story about me.
