Cinnamon Cranberry Chai Zucchini Bread ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #chai #zucchini #bread #recipe

Adapted from Simple Bites’ Best Zucchini Bread Ever When is the season where cinnamon and cranberries and hot chai intersect with zucchini?

Skinny Greek Yogurt Spinach Artichoke Dip ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #hummus #GreekYogurt #SpinDip

One of my yoga sisters had a party after yoga class last week. When someone hosts a party at their house, it’s customary for the rest of us to bring a little something.

Double Chocolate Raspberry Quinoa Muffins ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #quinoa #recipe

Adapted from Lauren Kelly, Certified Nutritionist Dense, chocolate muffins with a hint of fresh raspberry, made healthier with the addition of quinoa.

The classic hummus kicked up a notch with the addition of Sriracha, a hot sauce that adds both flavor and a bit of heat to this delicious, healthy Mediterranean dip. My friend at work saw me eating this and said to me, “Why don’t they just call it bean dip?” … my answer to her […]

Senate Bean Soup

Senate Bean Soup ~ slightly modified by Sumptuous Spoonfuls

Adapted from U.S. Senate Did you know every day in the U.S. Senate restaurant they serve this soup?

There are two variations […]

White Bean Garden Soup

White Bean Garden Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #soup #recipe

These past couple weeks have been tough because I’ve caught a virus that just won’t go away. For the first week, my throat was so sore all I wanted was soup and toast and tea. And since I had loads of garden veggies from my mom’s beautiful garden, I decided that I should make garden […]

Broccoli Cauli Cheese Soup

The thick, creamy texture of this broccoli cheese soup may trick your tongue into believing you are eating something that’s rich and full of cream. The magic is that it’s NOT!
