Super Bowl Food

Super Bowl 2017 is upon us, and I’ve got a few game day recipes for ya! Not gonna lie, I had high hopes that our beloved Cowboys would be playing this weekend. Yeah, that stings just a little. I have a little rule. If the Cowboy’s aren’t playing, I’m not watching the Super Bowl. So, it’s been a while since I’ve seen one. Ha! […]

Tex-Mex Chicken and Quinoa Casserole

Tex-Mex Chicken and Quinoa Casserole

Tex-Mex food is without a doubt my favorite type of food period. Growing up, El Chico was our favorite Tex-Mex restaurant. These days, there are so many more restaurants to choose from. Some great, some not so great. But the great ones? Yes, they take care of that intense craving for Tex-Mex. Chips and hot sauce. Beef fajita’s, cheese enchilada’s and tacos al carbon. All. So. Delicious. Maybe not all figure friendly, but still super delicious! And now I want chips and hot sauce. […]

Grated Carrot Salad with Lime Vinaigrette

Grated Carrot Salad with Lime Vinaigrette

Do you ever find yourself at a loss for a side dish at dinner time, only to come up with a delicious new side dish? That’s exactly how this grated carrot salad recipe came about. I had decided somewhat at the last minute to make some fried cod for dinner. Cole slaw is always a must-have side dish whenever I have something like fried fish. Unfortunately, I didn’t have any cabbage or cole slaw mix in the fridge. […]

Weeknight Chicken and Black Bean Chili

Weeknight Chicken and Black Bean Chili

When we headed to our local Sprout’s grocery store on Friday, I had absolutely no plans to buy chile peppers. But as I was browsing the produce department, I spotted the most beautiful red jalapeño’s and just had to buy them. The green ones are always available, but you rarely see the red ones at the store. At least, I don’t anyway. The Anaheim chile peppers were also looking exceptionally good that day, so I grabbed a couple of those as well. Peppers are one thing that I have a hard time passing up when they look and smell SO good. […]

Healthy Grocery Shopping Tips : Reading Ingredient Labels

Pickles Ingredients

Recently, my husband and I were at Kroger getting a few groceries for the weekend. My plan was to make homemade hamburgers for dinner that night. I knew we were out of pickles, so I headed over to that aisle to see what I could find. I picked up a jar of Mt. Olive pickles, which is a brand that I used to buy. Back then, I didn’t really even think to read the label. Not that I would’ve known what some of the ingredients were or why they are bad. […]

Tomato and Jalapeno Quinoa

Tomato and Jalapeno Quinoa

There are some dishes that just get better after they sit overnight, and to me, this is one of those. My husband ate two servings the first day though, so apparently he liked it right away. 🙂 This makes a great side dish for five to six people, or could be a light main course for four. Just throw some grilled chicken on top, and you’ve got a full meal. […]

Banana Cherry and Peanut Butter Smoothie

Banana Cherry and Peanut Butter Smoothie

On the days where I go running or walking early in the morning, I don’t really like to eat a real breakfast before I head out. Solid food just doesn’t sound good, so smoothies are a great alternative. Plus, you can whip them up in no time. I want to have plenty of energy when I’m out there running, and smoothies like this are perfect for that. It provides some protein, as well as healthy carbs. […]

Oatmeal Pumpkin Seed Chocolate Energy Bars

Oatmeal Pumpkin Seed Chocolate Energy Bars

Finding an affordable, healthy AND tasty snack bar at the grocery store can be a difficult task. The cheaper bars are full of all kinds of funky ingredients, and the better ones cost about three to four dollars a bar. Even though these aren’t something that I eat all the time, paying three dollars for one bar isn’t something I like doing. […]
