Recipe of the Week: Chunky Vegetable Taco Skillet

2017-05-06T20:10:50+00:00 May 6th, 2017|Health, Recipe|

I was in the mood for tacos and Mexican food, so earlier I drank a Margarita and then I made this little number you see here. And yes, I drank first - hours before, actually - then I made food! I looked at what I had in the fridge and I got a little skeptical I could make something from not much, so I got together a few vegetables, some lean ground [...]

If you reside in the Midwest, the past week has been quite a bummer when it comes to the weather we have had. And it feels like the entire month of April consisted of rainy, dreary and overcast days. I look out the window right now and wonder "Where the heck is Spring?". So, the inspiration to break out the crockpot came over me. I was also in the mood for Asian. [...]

Recipe of the Week: Spicy Chicken Zucchini Meatballs

2017-04-25T17:27:00+00:00 April 25th, 2017|Recipe|

Before I found out about the magic of zucchinis, every time I made meatballs, they were too dry and basically inedible. Thankfully, it is not that way for me anymore! It's not that became a better cook, I just got better at using my resources! If you want to keep these meatballs juicy and moist (say the word out loud), then you simply have to use shredded Zucchini! The recipe calls for chicken, [...]

Recipe of the Week: Taco Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

2017-04-09T20:57:26+00:00 April 11th, 2017|Recipe|

If you could only have one food on a deserted island for the rest of your life, what would it be? Mind would be Tacos. I've started to dial in my nutrition more as I'm gearing up for that "beach bod", so instead of a total indulgence, I decided to prep Taco Stuff Sweet Potatoes this week. Now, to be honest, there is probably nothing different from this recipe than making regular, [...]

Recipe of the Week: Rosemary Carrot Fries

2017-04-04T08:24:24+00:00 April 4th, 2017|Health, Recipe|

Instead of an entree this week, we opted for a side dish. Because side dishes are food, too and they need love. We recently stumbled across a new Instagram account that we adore: @the_hangry_helper. We adore it because 1) Catchy, clever account name 2) REAL food prep ideas for busy people. Since the majority of us feel busy and overwhelmed at some point during our week, I thought that an easy, palatable [...]

Recipe of the Week: Turkey & Zucchini Pasta Casserole

I think the perfect way to classify this recipe is a "Spring Comfort Food". Let me explain. It's time to transition out of the winter comfort foods, like hearty chilis and beef stews, to lighter fare. But that doesn't mean that you don't need a nice, filling meal during the Spring. So, enter this recipe: Turkey & Zucchini Pasta Casserole. Light enough to be easy on your macros, but hearty enough to leave [...]

I am so excited to share the Recipe of the Week this week. I admit, I was at a bit of a "writer's block" lately as far as what's been inspiring me to cook and to share. Luckily, my partner in crime (aka, my better half) shared some of her ideas and we came up with this jam for you! Our idea was motivated by our love for Chobani brand "Flip" yogurts. If [...]
