Anyone who's ever spent time on set with us knows that in between moving linens around and doing acrobatics for the perfect angle Holly and I spend much of our time talking about food. Duh, right? That's what you'd expect of food bloggers. But it's not what you might think. Our conversations about food tend to focus more on health than anything else these days, as we are both more aware than ever that we are aging. While growing old is inevitable, the toll it takes on your body does not have to be, or so we’ve convinced ourselves. This month we’ve had the privilege of applying our knowledge on the topic of health by writing a collection of recipes for Furthermore in their “Meal Prep” series.


...every dish is finger licking delicious.

Tuna Salad and Chickpea Stuffed Avocado

In this series you’ll find a new theme each week filled with innovative recipes, tips for mastering new skills in the kitchen, and healthy condiments to elevate the food you eat. We might work from home, but even we know the value of prepping ahead to make breaking in the middle of our day simple and delicious.

To launch our takeover of the Furthermore series we are starting with all things “no-cook.” (These meals are the perfect way to avoid the stove during those late-summer heat waves.) We aren’t trying to toot our own horn, but seriously guys, every dish is finger licking delicious. This loaded avocado is just one example of the meals you'll find in our takeover. Intense flavor, plenty of healthy fats, fresh, and filling...what more could you ask for for lunch? To see the rest of our no-cook recipes head to Furthermore where the whole series is being shared. We promise you'll be inspired to live just a bit healthier by incorporating these tasty meals into your lunchtime rotation.
