Lemon Ricotta Pancakes×400.jpg

Lemon Ricotta Pancakes Recipe

Lemon and ricotta are a match made in heaven. You will find the pairing in many Italian desserts like cheesecakes, tarts, and torta di mandorle (lemon, ricotta, and almond cake), but with pancakes, you don’t have to wait until after dinner to enjoy this winning combination.

Unless, of course, you are “a pancakes-for-supper” kind of gal like me. There’s nothing like pancakes to help make the stresses of just living in this world feel a little bit lighter.

10 Clean Eating Recipes For a Happy Spring

I can never really make up my mind about spring.

It’s sloshy and muddy and wet. The snow looks dirty. It’s never quite warm enough. It’s a sunny 50 degrees one day, and we’re preparing for a snow emergency the next day. But on the other hand… it’s not negative five hundred degrees anymore! That is a win. It’s warm enough to make you want to take off your mittens and a hat by the end of your walk. The days are getting longer and everything outside smells like sweet rain, grass, and dirt.

So, as is usually the case around this time of year, I’m on the fence about this strange transition season into summer. However. The one thing I’m not really on the fence about is SPRING FOOD.

And my spring recipe checklist is any and all of the following:

  • Crunchy
  • Tangy
  • Colorful
  • Crunchy x2
  • Bright
  • Cold, or Cold/Warm Combo
  • Textural (i.e. that chopped salad pizza – it’s at the end of the list)
  • And Crunchy x3

I feel like this is the season where my mouth full wakes up after a few delicious but mushy months wading through soups and stews and all the comforting food of winter.

So I am full-on embracing the crunch! I am diving headfirst into all the color and the texture and the flavor that makes your mouth pucker just a tiny bit. If you’re feeling me, these clean eating recipes are my recommendations for a happy spring!

Spring Detox Cauliflower Salad

Hi! It me. In salad form. This salad is the happiest spring recipe I can think of. It’s inspired by a recipe from The First Mess, so naturally it’s loaded with all kinds of vegetable texture, crunch, and color such as: riced cauliflower, sliced apples, roasty chickpeas, avocado, fistfuls of herbs, and a mustardy dressing. It is SO GOOD. And so necessary for spring.

Spring Roll Bowls with Sweet Garlic Lime Sauce

I have had a mad craving for spring rolls these last few weeks, and when I just can’t bring myself to chop and soak and roll, I just toss everything in a bowl with some rice noodles instead. I like to eat this nice and cold and lime-y and crunchy. HAPPY FEELS.

Avocado Egg Salad

First of all, THE EVERYTHING BAGEL. Secondly, this avocado egg salad is life. Just mash some avocados, toss in some hard boiled eggs (hello, Easter) and add some herbs, lemon juice, and salt. YUM to the max. See also: I love everything bagels.

Berry Chia Overnight Oats

This is an oats meets smoothie meets chia pudding mash-up in the best possible way. Also, it’s pink and it’s pretty. Also, you can put it in a stemless wine glass and feel fancy about it. These are my essentials for a happy spring.

Yummy Salmon Burgers with Slaw, Duh

This might sound 90% crazy but I love this as much for the quick and crunchy slaw as I do for those crispy, salty salmon burgers. This recipe comes together in literally 15 minutes and it is everything I want in a spring meal. Filling, nutritious, and DANG GINA yummy.

Korean BBQ Yum Yum Rice Bowls

I make variations on this recipe constantly – burritos, tacos, etc. – but the essentials are this: reeeeally flavorful, tender, pull-apart meat, steamy white or brown rice, and something very crunchy – slaw, kimchi, whatever ya got. I, of course, like to be a little dramatic with my food so I always top it off with a thick drizzle of yum yum sauce or spicy mayo and a hit of peanuts, herbs, lime, and maybe sesame seeds. Overkill? More like overawesome. Pro Tip: Make your meat in the slow cooker. It’s SO yummy.

Detox Rainbow Roll Ups With peanut Sauce

These beauties can be wrapped with anything, but I like to use a big ol collard leaf because spring! health goals! crunchy and fresh! Everything gets layered with curry hummus and fresh veggies (spring roll style!) and then you dip them into peanut sauce. Thank you and goodnight.

Perfect Baked Salmon And Lentils

Gosh, I love this recipe. You literally put everything in the oven together and then make a quick lemon sauce (SPRING) and then poof! You have this gorgeous, healthy dinner. The pink in the picture is a pile of sweet, tangy purple sauerkraut that I would highly recommend you make or buy. It rounds the whole thing out into color, texture, and flavor bliss.

Goddess Curry Chicken Salad

We meet again, Everything Bagel. I can’t not. You know this about me. I am normally not a big fan of chicken salad which is why THIS chicken salad is a pretty big deal, okay? This chicken salad is legit. It is made with Greek yogurt, but not in a way that tastes overly healthy, because we add some olive oil in there to keep the good fats going. There are golden raisins, cilantro, pistachios (surprise!), and plenty of juicy curry-spiced chicken. It is my favorite of all chicken salads.

Chopped Salad Pizza

I have not been able to get this out of my mind lately. Basically this involves an EXCELLENTLY tangy, crunchy, textural chopped salad with the works (we’re talking pepperoncinis and salami and kalamatas and feta and chickpeas and homemade Italian dressing) that is assembled on top of a lightly-sauced-and-cheesed crunchy flatbread pizza crust. In full disclosure, I didn’t make my own flatbread, but if you wanted to be 100% on the clean eating thing, you could do that and we’d all super admire you. OH MY SALAD this is so good.

Okay, tell me.

Full English Breakfast on a Sheet Pan

A classic English breakfast is a really special way to start the day. It’s the kind of breakfast that will leave you nice and full through the early afternoon, at which point maybe you’ll want a light snack or some tea to get you to the dinner hour. It also happens to be a fantastic cure after a night of overindulging!
