Sometimes I just can't wait until Tuesday for Tacos. I know Taco Tuesday is fun to say and hashtag on instagram, but I've never been one to enjoy being told when to or not to eat one of my favorite foods. The rule breaker inside me just needs to have Tacos on a Wednesday or a Friday or maybe even a monday ;PRead 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
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
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 mealtime inspiration post is coming at you a little later in the day than normal. That's right, instead of breakfast, we're talking lunch-time-meal-time goodness in the form of zucchini noodles. These zoodles were quick, almost effortless, and tasty, paired with leftovers from the night before. Here's what we've got going on:Read More
Spring is in the air. I know it's supposed to cool off again and It could just be the birds chirping on the nature sounds loop I have playing on my computer or the spring breeze candle I just lit, but either way it's working for me. I wrapped my spring feelings into this dish of soft scrambled eggs and tender zucchini noodles. Mmmm mmm good. So right in so many ways.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
HELLO WORLD. Hope you all had a wonderful holiday and a very happy New Year! 2016 is going to be a good one, I can feel it. What better way to start it off than with some veggie noodles? (I'll help you out, there's no better way... nope, not one.) This little lady got a veggie spiralizer for Christmas.Read More
I am quite the protein lover. I believe that the best form of protein is protein from other animals (aka chicken, meat, eggs, etc) and that we should have some at every meal. That being said, I know that not everyone agrees with me and even those that do, sometimes need a break from all that heavy protein.Read More
