We are in the middle of “Macaroni Free March.” Everyday, my almost five year old would ask for mac n cheese and probably about half of the time we’d make it for him from a box from Whole Foods – something I swore I’d never do! To get out of this rut, we declared...
Mango Chicken and Wilted Greens
Needed some clean lunch ideas, so I browsed the Clean Eating Meal Program and found inspiration for this dish. This is made with ingredients I always have on hand, so I definitely wanted to save this recipe to make again!
Parmesan Spaghetti Squash with White Beans and Spinach
This meal is a long time favorite of ours; even our 4 year-old enjoys it. It’s been modified from a photocopied recipe shared in a Weight Watchers meeting and a quick google search shows it’s not to be found anywhere online, so I’m glad to be able to share my version...
Chopped Kale Salad
So my parents went to Nashville last weekend, and it wasn’t the honky-tonks or barbecue they were talking about when they got home… it was a kale salad. My dad asked me to copycat the salad he had at Kayne Prime in Nashville (not easy to do since I haven’t actually...
Healthy Chicken and Rice Casserole
I’ve mentioned before that I do weight loss challenges to lose weight. Well, I’ve got a challenge wrapping up soon. I need to lose four pounds in two weeks. Totally doable right? Forgot to mention we are also going on vacation during those two week. I’m doomed! Or maybe not. We...
“Bang Bang” Shrimp Salad
My version of Bang Bang shrimp served as a dinner salad. Super easy because I used a Dole chopped salad kit (Sesame Asian). We will definitely make this one again!
Sweet Basil Burrito
I decided to try to create a healthier version of my favorite burrito from Northstar Cafe in Columbus, Ohio. It turned out great!
Spiralized Thai “Noodle” Salad
Sriracha Thai peanut sauce tossed with zoodles, chicken, snow peas and carrots is a sure way to spice up your lunchtime routine (or this would make a great dinner salad)!
Creamy Lemon Quinoa Salad
I’ve been making this salad for years and it’s one that I always look forward to eating. We have fun with it, adding things like broccoli, spinach, arugula or peas to bulk up the nutritional value.
Whenever I bake salmon, I always make extra so we can eat this salmon salad for lunch the next day.
