Springtime Shrimp & Radish Salad

Spring is finally here! Let’s celebrate with a light, citrusy, crunchy shrimp & radish salad.

I’m looking forward to green grass, fresh air, ample sunlight and (eventually…) farmer’s markets. Every winter, despite my best intentions, I cocoon myself indoors, only venturing out for necessities like work and groceries and the gym. You could say I fully embrace the “hygge” trend. Or you could say I don’t like dealing with the cold or driving on ice so I revert to extreme introvert mode. Both would be true, depending on perspective.

Anyway, when the grass turns green and it’s warm enough to keep the balcony door open all day, I crave everything bright and fresh. Bring on the big ass salads and grilling. Less hiding, more hiking. I wake up when the sun rises, unprovoked, energized and ready to soak in the day.

Okay, enough romanticizing. I love this season. Can you tell?

Legit Whipped Mashed Potatoes

My beloved man spouse is celebrating his 29th birthday today! I thought we’d celebrate on the blog with his favorite food: Legit Whipped Mashed Potatoes.

After I met my now-husband Tjay, I figured out pretty quickly that he adored mashed potatoes. When his birthday rolled around, I sweetly offered to make him his favorite dessert. He shrugged off the notion entirely, claiming “I’d rather have steak and mashed potatoes.”

I’m no stranger to mashed potato lovers. Tjay happens to share a birthday with my dad, a fellow mashed potato aficionado. (Yes, the amount of similarities between my father and my husband freak me out.)

Plantain Tortillas (Two Ways)

Add Plantain Tortillas to the long list of overdue recipes here at Do You Even Paleo.

Since I first tried plantains, I’ve professed how much I love them. I’ve made plantain patties, plantain muffins, plantain cake, plantain beef bowls, and more. These starchy veggies are so incredibly versatile…it’s hard not to love them.

I’ve made plantain tortillas numerous times over the past few years, and I finally took the time to write down my favorite ways to make them. Both of these methods do take a little prep time, but tacos with these tortillas are so freaking good…you won’t regret it!

Cinnamon Cumin Roasted Carrots

Healthy and simple doesn’t have to be boring. Need proof? Look no further than these Cinnamon Cumin Roasted Carrots.

Recently, I overheard a couple coworkers talking about pre-made healthy meals from a local company. They decided that while the meals were good, they could have used more flavor. “But,” one coworker said, “you can’t have healthy and flavor.”

Bollocks. Healthy means different things to different people, but one thing healthy should never be is bland and boring. I refuse to live a healthy life that’s devoid of wonderful, flavorful meals.
