Caesar(ish) Salad

IMG_7500I’m not much of a salad eater but this salad I eat several times a week. I really use it as a filler before my lean protein dinner. It contains avocado for the nice healthy fat.


  • romaine head
  • 2 tbs. guacamole (bought pre-made or your own) or avocado
  • 1/2 c. pine nuts
  • 1 tbs. miso paste
  • 2 tbs. nutritional yeast flakes
  • 4-5 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 c. coconut water
  • 3 drops liquid stevia

From pine nuts down mix in blender (this is your dressing). Assemble cut romaine, guacamole, and drizzle with dressing.

Tuna and Broccoli Salad


Being that I grew up not eating red meat, school lunches were quite difficult for my mother. I ate a lot of tuna salad sandwiches while everyone else was having their deli meat sandwiches. I still really enjoy Tuna salad sandwiches but not the calories that come along with them. This recipe is a lighter version which includes broccoli and gives it a nice crunch. It makes for a quick easy delicious lunch!


  • 1 can light tuna in water
  • 3 stalks of chopped celery
  • head of broccoli
  • 1/2 chopped red onion
  • 2 tbsp light mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp mustard
  • 2 tbsp pickle relish
  • fresh pepper


I mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl and then separate into 2 separate bowls – one for lunch and another for the next day (or I guess you could share). Notice how little mayo is used but it really adds a ton of flavor.
