  • New recipe: Vegetarian spinach meatballs & spaghetti is up (link in profile), from @izyhossack's new book #TheSavvyCook! 🎧 She's also on the podcast debunking nutriton myths, like some fads going around right now. In her words: Don't believe anything you read on the internet! until you research and form an opinion. She's all about eating real, whole foods instead of jumping on the latest health craze. It doesn't get more #PrettySimpleCooking than that! These meatballs are out of this world, and combined with spaghetti, shredded zucchini, butter and soy sauce, it's a memorable combination using accessible ingredients. For the recipe, click the link and profile. To listen to the podcast, search A Couple Cooks in your podcast app or on iTunes. 📸 by Alex, I love how he captured this one! 💖 . . . #pasta #spaghetti #mediterraneandiet #mediterraneanfood #vegetarianfood #vegetarians #inthekitchen #eatingwell #foodwinewomen #huffposttaste #cleaneating #buzzfeedfood #vegetarianfoodshare #plantpower

  • Our adoption experience was particularly difficult. I wrote an essay called Fourth Times a Charm to share it, because yes: he was the fourth baby we were matched with. 😭 Looking at photos of us with him, it's impossible to detect the heartache and tears that preceded him. For months I struggled with how and whether to tell the story of the adoptions that fell through. When Larson came, the story came out of me and I submitted it to the website @coffeeandcrumbs. It's now published, and the first place that I've shared the {gory} details of how it felt on that rollercoaster. To read it, head over to the link below. (I'll also place a link on Instagram Stories for today only.) If you've experienced bumps on the road to starting a family, we're sending warm thoughts to you today. Many times the journey doesn't look the way you think it will, but if you persevere, there is an impossibly happy ending waiting for you. 📸 by @kelleyjordanphotography. (Also @ashleegadd and other writers of @coffeeandcrumbs just published a fantastic book of essays on motherhood, #TheMagicofMotherhood.) . . . . #adoptionrocks #adoption #adoptionislove #larsonames

  • Say hello to Turmeric roasted cauliflower from our #PrettySimpleCooking cookbook! {Preorder link is above!} A few words about what Pretty Simple Cooking means. Try as we might, it's been hard to find the right label for Alex and my philosophy on cooking. Pretty Simple Cooking was our attempt to describe our approach. Cooking nourishing food at home isn’t easy, but can be pretty simple once you rethink the way you approach the kitchen. In the book we share these 10 lessons we've learned about food. Do you resonate with #PrettySimpleCooking? 1. There is joy in the act of cooking_____________________ 2. Eating whole foods and lots of vegetables can be delicious and fulfilling instead of tasteless and strict._____________________ 3. Our food choices can nourish our bodies and planet_____________________ 4. Slowing down and making space for cooking is worth the investment in our health_____________________ 5. We can embrace healthy homemade foods instead of fearing and eliminating bad foods_____________________ 6. Instead of knowing everything before we start, we can be bold and just jump in_____________________ 7. We give ourselves grace and overcome our fear of failure_____________________ 8. Cooking and eating is best shared with others in community_____________________ 9. Moderation is the key to sustaining a practice of cooking and eating well_____________________ 10. As Julia Child said: “Above all, just have fun”._____________________ . . .. .. . #vegan #vegetarianfood #vegetarians #inthekitchen #eatingwell #foodwinewomen #huffposttaste #cleaneating #buzzfeedfood #vegetarianfoodshare #plantpower #veganfoodshare #turmeric

It's all arranged by Billy from @witandvinegar (hats off, Billy!👋) The recipe is at the link in our profile. . This popsicle recipe was inspired by my favorite at Indy's one and only artisan popsicle joint, @NiceyTreat! It's a must visit if you're in Indianapolis. I love their almond butter popsicle dipped in dark chocolate (they use locally made @revivalfoodco almond butter!). To top it off, we added edible glitter, inspired by our friends at @studiodiy. And if you're into popsicles, shoutout to @sproutedroutes who has a new book of healthy popsicles called Glow Pops! . #popsicles #healthypopsicles #vegetarianfood #veganfood #naturallysweet #veganfoodshare #inthekitchen #eatingwell #foodwinewomen #huffposttaste #cleaneating #buzzfeedfood #vegetarianfoodshare #plantpower #glowpops
