Lately, I've been back on the yogurt train. I have this love/love relationship with yogurt. I LOVE the way greek yogurt tastes; that tang is just so right to me. I also LOVE the nutrition profile of plain yogurt....Read More
Once again, an Ambitious Kitchen recipe came to my rescue this week. I have this habit of finding a new food blog or instagram and binge scrolling through all their old posts. In my frantic scrolling last Thursday, I happened upon a ton of chicken ideas to try on my meal prep Sunday. This crockpot salsa chicken was one of them!Read More

I am always trying to find new ways to season plain chicken breasts. I prep 2 family sized packs of chicken every Sunday to last us the week (along with all the other stuff I make) and I've made my fair share of flops. If it's not seasoned enough or not quite right, then we're stuck choking down flavorless, overcooked, chicken sawdust. Not fun. No more.Read More
My current obsession: Balsamic Chicken Burgers.
I know exactly what you're thinking... "Those sound excellent, but ain't nobody got time for that!" Well, I'm here to tell you that you do have time and these lovely burgers can be a part of your weekly routine.Read More
To be honest with you guys, I don't technically know what a buddah bowl is. From what I've seen, they seem to be bowls of food, mostly veggies, protein, and grains all in one. I figured this bowl I made for lunch today qualified and thus the sweet potato buddah bowl was born.Read More
Sometimes what we really need is not a recipe, not a health & nutrition fact, or a wellness incentive. Instead, what we need, is some inspiration.
Today's breakfast inspiration got a little help from last night's dinner. It's also the kind of breakfast that you could eat for any meal in a pinch. It's chicken hash with veggies & taters all topped with runny fried eggs. Yes chicken hash is a thing, yes there's bacon, yes it's delicious...
- CHICKEN HASH: Cook some chopped bacon and chopped onions until fat has rendered & bacon is beginning to crisp up. Add in shredded leftover rotisserie chicken and cook until golden brown.
- VEGGIES: I used a mix of bell peppers, zucchini, and chopped cherry tomatoes sauteed until tender.
- TATERS: Super thin sliced yellow, red, and purple potatoes cooked on the stove in a little butter, covered until tender and then uncovered until golden & crisped.
- EGGS: Fried in a little grassfed butter until over easy.
- COFFEE: Iced, cause summer's not over just yet.
Now that all my summer craziness is beginning to die down, I've found a little time to catch up on the posts I've been meaning to write and the foods I've been meaning to eat :D
In case you didn't know, I've got a family and a boyfriend who know how to eat. The family would eat all day long if they could and the boyfriend is on a pretty regimented eating plan that involves a lot of food and that can be hard to manage thanks to his busy days. In an attempt to make things a little easier for everyone I've been doing a good deal of food prep every Sunday. The point of the story being.... these roasted chickens save my life every single week.Read More
I LOVE a good stir fry. Something about that mix of fresh veggies, peppers with snap peas, broccoli & zucchini side by side, the beautiful assortment of colors that ends up on your plate. It's everything I want in an anytime dish. HOWEVER, most stir fry's are weighed down with overly processed, heavy, salt filled, sugar laden sauces that almost negate the beautiful arrangement of veggies in your dish.Read More
We're going easy peasy with todays chicken recipe. We bought chicken already trimmed & sliced into cute little tenderloins, we threw them into a big plastic bag with a simple marinade, we let them sit, we grilled them up, and then we ate them all. This post was made with all those followers participating in Jersey Devil CrossFit's Be Better Challenge! This chicken is a great way to get your protein at every meal with marinade that doesn't have any added sugars or overly processed ingredients.Read More
