THE most delicious reuben: @denville_meat_shop’s grass fed corned beef, @applegate Swiss cheese, @realpickles sauerkraut, & homemade thousand island dressing (@sirkensingtons’ avocado mayo + @annieshomegrown ketchup) — all layered onto @samisbakery GF bread & grilled in the cast iron with @organicvalley grass fed butter. I served this beauty of a sandwich with a little avocado & cucumber salad, & voilá! Peeeerfection. Happy Saturday!! #samanthasbreadandbutter #grassfedgoodness #eatyourprotein #notvegan #👌🏽

Not very seasonal, but craving all the fruit lately and decided to satisfy that craving with kiwi 🥝 & strawberries 🍓+ a slice of local sourdough with roasted almond butter & raw honey. Currently day dreaming about being on a beach — any place where it’s sunny & 75. For any of you who find yourselves in such a place, please soak up some sun for me! 🌞🌊🏝 #samanthasbreadandbutter . . . . #breakfast #healthybreakfast #fruity #toasty #toasting #theartofsimplefood #healthspo #freshfood #realfood #slowfood #slowlife #slowliving #slowlifestyle #slowmovement

Quick lunch FTW 🙌🏽 Mashed avocado 🥑 + mashed yam 🍠 on @samisbakery GF bread 🍞, topped with @lightlifefoods T E M P E H (fried in coconut oil with tamari & garlic powder). These flavor + texture combinations are killer, you guys — especially the salty/sweet combo of the yams & fried tempeh 😍 Btw, there’s no doubt in my mind that this tempeh recipe is THE BEST EVER & you can find it in my story highlights 😉 Hope you’re all having a productive week so far! 👩🏻‍🍳👩🏻‍💻 #samanthasbreadandbutter . . . . #foodandtravel #travelandeat #intheberkshires #tasteberkshires #slowfood #slowlife #slowliving #slowlifestyle #slowmovement #farmtotable #farmfood #localfood #buyfreshbuylocal #healthspo #freshfood #realfood #seasonalfood #eatlocal #locavore #tempeh #vegetarianfood #veganfood #vegetarian #vegan #veganrecipes #plantstrong

And here’s how I’m eating those baby bellas from my last post — with loads of tomato sauce 🍅, sautéed zucchini, shaved parmesan & a slice of warm, crispy, local sourdough ciabatta drizzled with olive oil. Did I ever mention how much I love tomato sauce? Forget the pasta, just give me a bowl of the sauce and I’ll eat it by the spoonful (or in this case, dip my bread in it).👌🏽 #samanthasbreadandbutter #theartofsimplefood . . . . #foodandtravel #travelandeat #intheberkshires #tasteberkshires #slowfood #slowlife #slowliving #slowlifestyle #slowmovement #farmtotable #farmfood #localfood #buyfreshbuylocal #healthspo #freshfood #realfood #seasonalfood #eatlocal #locavore #italianfood #plantstrong

Hey mushroom lovers! These oven roasted garlic & balsamic baby bellas are a total winner, & ready in just 30 minutes. Recipe below. 😘 . Toss one (~24 oz) package of washed baby bellas in 2-3 tablespoons olive oil, 2 cloves chopped garlic, 1 tablespoon chopped parsley (more to taste), a drizzle of balsamic, and pinch of salt and pepper. Spread on a baking sheet and roast at 425 degrees F for about 25 minutes, or until tender and brown. #samanthasbreadandbutter

Perhaps it’s my Mediterranean roots that are responsible for my absolute love of this salad combo, but regardless of your ethnic background, the deliciousness of these flavors can’t be denied. 👉🏽 @safecatchfoods tuna mixed with capers & olive oil, roasted red peppers, olives, field greens, extra virgin olive oil, balsamic, crushed black pepper & a sprinkle of sea salt. I’d normally add feta, but didn’t have any on hand. Serve with some fresh bread 🥖 and you’ll be set for a quick and totally perfect spring lunch. (That is, if spring ever comes.) Happy Sunday, loves. #samanthasbreadandbutter . . . . #foodandtravel #travelandeat #intheberkshires #tasteberkshires #slowfood #slowlife #slowliving #slowlifestyle #slowmovement #farmtotable #farmfood #localfood #buyfreshbuylocal #healthspo #freshfood #realfood #seasonalfood #eatlocal #locavore #quicklunch #healthylunch #mediterraneanfood #aegeanfood #middleeasternfood #plantstrong #whole30 #saladideas

It’s been a rough past while, and that’s written on my face. But what’s also shining through is little rays of happiness and the hope for more of it in days to come. If you’re going through a dark time, keep on going and power through, people. The light is on the other side, and you’ll get there by following your heart. In the meantime, go eat dinner at @graffitiearth in TriBeCa. It’ll give you something to be happy about. #samanthasbreadandbutter #justchooselove

Fried rice with orange & red bell pepper, carrot, zucchini, ginger, garlic, scallion, braggs & sesame oil. Topped with a delicious Asian peanut sauce made with creamy peanut butter, shoyu, sesame oil, mirin vinegar, maple syrup, gomasio, chia seeds, cayenne pepper, garlic, ginger & a splash of water. To make the Asian peanut sauce simply combine all the ingredients in a jar, give it a rigorous shake, and voilá. Would be awesome with noodles, and on most veggies and salads as well! 💯👌🏽 #samanthasbreadandbutter . . . . #asianfood #chinesefood #macrobiotic #vegan #vegetarian #plantstrong #foodandtravel #travelandeat #intheberkshires #tasteberkshires #slowfood #slowlife #slowliving #slowlifestyle #slowmovement #farmtotable #farmfood #localfood #buyfreshbuylocal #healthspo #freshfood #realfood #seasonalfood #eatlocal #locavore

Cream of wheat will forever remind me of my childhood. My sweet mom, who always made sure I had a decent breakfast before school, used the brand Bear Mush by @arrowheadmills (which I loved because it reminded me of the animal 🐻) and served it with a little milk and maple syrup. Here I’ve improvised and added a bit: Bear Mush / homemade coconut flour banana bread crumbles / roasted nuts & seeds / homemade cashew cream / maple syrup. So delish. #samanthasbreadandbutter #ilovegluten . . . . #creamofwheat #farina #gluten #breakfast #healthybreakfast #foodandtravel #travelandeat #intheberkshires #tasteberkshires #slowfood #slowlife #slowliving #slowlifestyle #slowmovement #farmtotable #farmfood #localfood #buyfreshbuylocal #healthspo #freshfood #realfood #seasonalfood #eatlocal #locavore
