In case I’ve never said it, Nando’s Peri-Peri is one of my favorite fast-casual restaurants.
My “usual” is a veggie burger topped with a pineapple slice and halloumi, and a side of butternut squash and grilled corn. It is so delicious!
On Friday, I just had to have it. Thousands of miles away from D.C. and with no Nando’s in sight in Barbados, I headed to the kitchen to recreate it–with a twist.
I’m so delighted with how it turned out, I’m sharing the photos and tips for making it with you.

I’m not fat but I’m unfit. Mainly because after leading a meatless lifestyle for five years, my eating habits still left a lot to be desired.
Let’s blame it on late-night meals, a weakness for carbs and a sweet tooth (man, I love cupcakes!).
Recently, I created a new formula to curb my crazy eating: one dining-out day per week–if I must; fewer sugary treats; drinking more water; leading a more active lifestyle. Why? Because there’s nothing fabulous about feeling or looking unfit.
So I’ve committed to cooking more, which demands creativity in the kitchen. And let’s face it, I’m no Emeril or Martha Stewart.
Hence today’s post: five of the best sources and websites for healthy recipes I’ve discovered.
