Roasted Chickpea Greek Salad

Still trying to use up my lettuce in new ways! I was going to make this in to a wrap of some sort, but I had a veggie sandwich for lunch (Rye bread with cucumbers, lettuce, tomato, avocado, and roasted peppers).  The other day my friend told me about how she roasted some chickpeas, and…

Save the Lettuce!

There is a funny tweet going around that says “Almost left the grocery store without buying a bag of spring mix to throw, unopened, into the garbage in two weeks.” Lol. We have all been there. Sometimes we do open it for one salad, eat said salad, feel healthy, then forget the rest of the…

Tofu and Veggie Stir Fry

I am on a tofu kick lately! I have a few veggies that I need to eat up before the farmer’s market rolls around again, so I decided to make this stir fry.
