 Superfoods at Every Meal, by Kelly Pfeiffer

This recipe came straight from Kelly Pfeiffer’s newly released cookbook, Superfoods at Every Meal. Each recipe in the book includes one or more of the following superfoods: quinoa, chickpeas, kale, sweet potato, blueberries, eggs, honey, coconut oil, Greek yogurt, and walnuts. There are so many options for keeping your daily eats superiffic, and the photos in the book are gorgeous. They’ll make you want to eat all the superfoods ever.

Kelly also writes the blog, Nosh and Nourish. Take a peek at her site so you can get an idea of how insanely mouth-watering the recipes in her cookbook are.

Next up on my To Make list from Kelly’s book:

  • Artichoke, Kale, & Mozarella Melt
  • Tuscan Kale Soup
  • Black Bean Quinoa Burgers
  • Balsamic, Kale, and Chicken Sausage Pizza
  • Smoked Ham Pad Thai
  • Sweet Potato Muffins with Walnut Streusel

Le sigh…so many superfoods, so little time.


I ate this grilled cheese after I went for a 27-mile road bike ride. Because it’s made out of 97% carbs and I needed allllll of them. P.S. I told myself I’d only eat half and save the rest for a midnight snack, but then I ate the whole thing before I knew what was happening. P.P.S. I put an entire sweet potato in that grilled cheese, even though the recipe instructed me to control myself. P.P.P.S. I used Canyon Bakehouse gluten-free bread, which I picked up at Whole Foods – have you tried it?

Back to the book.

Kelly’s beautiful book gives you tons of options for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, and dessert. You could seriously live out of this book, no joke. The recipes are healthful without being impractical – meaning, all the ingredients are easy to find at any store, and they are all pretty quick to prepare. This book is great for everyone – from those  who already enjoy eating healthy to those who are looking to add nutrients to their diet.

My super food du jour is chia seeds. I also love sweet potatoes, blueberries and kale.

I feel like splooge and sweet potatoes should never be in the same sentence...except in this instance in which it's a dang good thing.

Hmm, my favorite superfood is definitely a tough choice. It's between sweet potatoes and blueberries but I'd probably have to go with sweet potatoes. Roasted sweet potatoes are just too good.

I could eat sweet potatoes every single day!
