Anyone who knows me KNOWS that I love a quick, simple and healthy meal. As much as I love to cook, I don’t always have the time to spend hours in the kitchen coming up with an extravagant recipe. Lately I have been coming up with a lot of go-to meals that are delicious and husband + kiddo approved. I’ve made lots of nachos in the past, but the last few months I have been all about the vegan nachos. They are light, taste amazing and always a good idea. 

I was so excited to have received an amazing package from YellowBird Foods with some of their amazing (and may I say, spiiiicy) hot sauces! The fact that my tolerance for spicy food totally increased back when I was pregnant has been a total game changer. My world opened up to so many new amazing flavors, and has made me even more creative in the kitchen that I already was. 

WHY DO I LOVE YELLOW BIRD HOT SAUCES? Their sauce are made with REAL, farm-fresh fruits and vegetables, they are packed with flavor and pretty much go with just about any dish. YellowBird Sauces are made with real wholesome ingredients, and they leave out all the crap and filler ingredients that would never fly in my household. To learn more about this amazing brand and their amazing hot sauce please go check them out online and on Instagram.
