Friday Links & Carb Love

Another week goes by and March begins to wrap up. I for one can’t wait for April. March has been plagued by lots of snowstorms, colds and the inability to wear cute spring shoes. Things are looking up – when I leave work it is still light out (sometimes) and I am begining to get a bit of spring fever. I have the overwhelming urge to go out and buy sandals and shorts despite the fact that today is a warm 40 degrees.

Anyway. Have you checked out my CARBS Pinterest Board yet? I am constantly updating it with lots of carby goodness. I also just started a BACON board, which is my current favorite. Check them out and follow me on Pinterest.

So my goal for March was to really amp it up on healthy recipes. Reviewing February, I started to slack a bit on keeping things on the lighter side. So March was healthy recipe time – but don’t worry, I did not neglect glorious carbs. See for yourself:

Pistachio Quinoa Pilaf with Harissa



 Skinny Carrot Cake Muffins



 Chicken Teriyaki Fried Rice



Red Lentil Cakes with Harissa



Here are some amazing carboliscious recipes from some of my wonderful food blogger friends:

    What? You have a carb board AND a bacon board….we should get married immediately cuz I sort of love you right now.

    I want to try your pistachio quinoa. I have such a weakness for all things pistachio. That fried rice needs to make an appearance too.

    Thanks for mentioning my taters. Much appreciated lady.

    Thank you, Dara. For the Carb Love link. As much as I love low-carb diet, I just can’t give up real bread completely. And I think a healthy diet lies in the BALANCE. Thank you, once again, for this awesome theme.
    Happy Easter!
