You all probably know by now that I’m a big fan girl of Lorna Jane. I got to meet LJ earlier this year at an event in Santa Monica and I was so inspired by her words and how she lives her everyday life. She is a kick-ass business woman who runs a highly successful business and makes exercise and eating healthy a huge part of her everyday life.
One of Lorna Jane’s mantra’s is Nourish – making sure to fuel your body with the best food possible each day. And now there is a Nourish cookbook. The cookbook is filled with all sorts of breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, and snack recipes that are designed for eating healthy and only putting the best types of ingredients into your body. There’s also page inserts filled with great tips like shopping lists, hydration, and how to stop dieting and start eating real food. I’m a huge fan of that motto.
The cookbook itself is gorgeously designed (in true Lorna Jane fashion). The pictures are vibrant and make you just want to get in the kitchen and start cooking. I was inspired by the cookbook and flagged a couple different recipes. I decided to make the egg and lettuce cups snack. I normally steer far away from egg salad because of the mayo (I hate, hate, hate mayo) but ever since 4th of July I kind of had a weird craving for some egg salad. The recipe in this cookbook calls for greek yogurt instead of mayo. I happened to have some Fage greek yogurt in my fridge so I decided to try it out. The recipe was super easy. Here was all you need:
- 4 hard boiled eggs, mashed up
- 1/4 cup Greek Yogurt
- 1/2 Tsp Parsley
- Lettuce for lettuce cups
I mixed all the ingredients together and put them on a nice piece of Swiss Chard. The recipe called for romaine lettuce, but I think it was fine to switch it up and mine tasted just fine. Here is how they turned out:
I really enjoyed the Nourish cookbook and plan to make several more recipes from it. There’s an energy tonic made with expresso and cayenne pepper that I want to try next. Yum!
