Taco Tuesday

Anyone else feel like they’re constantly working to find easy recipes that the whole family will not only eat, but love? Taco Tuesday is always a crowd pleaser, even in Melissa Hartwig Urban’s house. We spoke to the Whole30 CEO about her favorite spin on turkey tacos...

Starting the day with Green Smoothies

The weather is supposed to be so crummy all week so you just want warm comfort food but still healthy just in case you eat it all! These recipes I took from Paleo Running Momma who is a great resource for delicious recipes to feed the soul especially when working out,...

Spicy Cod with Peach Nectarine Salsa

I am still trying to eat less red meat and eat more fish so this week will be a spicy salsa cod dish, chicken sausage and broccoli rabe and cilantro lime turkey meatballs. Making three dishes this week so we have leftovers and can add the meatballs to salads. Hard...

Spring Recipes

The weather is becoming nicer and nicer each day and with that you want to eat lighter and maybe even healthier meals, summer is coming! Black Bean and Corn Taco Salad I have been making this side dish for years, it is so easy and tasty and to make it a little more...

Salmon and Soup Recipes

I need to eat more fish and I think if I can make salmon a little more tasty, my husband won't mind it as much. So I bought double the amount of salmon so I can add it to salads and have this meal twice because it sounded so good! We did hard boiled eggs this week,...

Instapot Easy Meals

It's Tuesday and you know what that means...new recipes! We have some leftover pizza from my daughter's birthday party, but I am staying away from that and getting back on track with some easy and healthy meals! The breakfast frittata seems to now be a staple. It is...

Chicken Sausage Once Again!

After a week away, I was happy to get back to a routine with a healthy meal plan to start the week. I did a egg frittata again and filled with veggies, chicken sausage and peppers and tacos. This meal prep made for an easy shopping list and even easier meal prep!

Healthy Chicken Cutlets!

Just because you’re away, doesn’t mean you have to eat really bad! Here is a healthy recipe for chicken cutlets – amazing taste without the guilt!

Lactation Cookies

While its staying light out later and the weather in the 50's I couldn't help but want to grill! Nothing fancy except Bubba Burgers, Applegate Hot Dogs and Sweet Potato fries. I also made the Instapot Creamy Gnocchi Soup from a few weeks ago so that will last us! With...

Chicken Sausage!

This week I used a lot of chicken sausage to change it up.  Chicken Sausage Breakfast Frittata, Chicken Sausage Veggie Casserole and Lemon Spinach Scallop Linguine. Bought cold cuts for my husband since he doesn't care about eating bread, or he can grab leftovers and...

Buffalo Chicken Chili and French Onion Soup

When will it be getting warmer out?? What a tease we had a few weeks ago with weather in the 50's. This cold just makes you want to have soup and chili and stay in on the couch. So that is exactly what we are doing! We really have the same items for breakfast each...

Taco Tuesday

How have recipes been going up once a week and it's finally Taco Tuesday? Tacos are the easiest meal around and so fun! Also if you make enough, you can make them into taco salads, quesadilla's and taquitos  - so that's what we will be doing!   With the...

INSTANT POT CREAMY GNOCCHI SOUP

Isn't it funny when you have a whole day to do everything possible, but you do nothing from your to do list?? I ended up making all of this Monday morning instead of Sunday...opps! I went to Stew's on Thursday to get a few things and ended up doing all of the food...

Sticky Chicken and Turkey Meatballs on the menu for the week!

Good news for this week, no red meat! You never know how much red meat you eat until you write down your recipes! This week''s menus include hard boiled eggs, shredded chicken for lunch, smashed sweet potatoes as a side, sticky chicken and turkey meatballs. I did all...

A Super Bowl Spin on Root Beer Floats

While food (and football of course) is the main event at any Super Bowl gathering, every great party can use a signature cocktail, like these easy root beer floats with a caramel twist.

Gumbo, Stuffed Plantains and Brownies, oh my!

I don't know about you, but meal prepping is really helping with the craziness the week can bring and also keeps us on track of eating healthy during the week. I'm really enjoying the variety of these meals, making enough for the week and again also realizing how much...

Snow Day Meal Prep

Well that "snow day" was a bust! I think I would have rather had some snow so we could have gotten out and played in it, rather then sitting inside because it was raining and then freezing cold! But being inside helped me meal prep for the week, so something good came...

Weekly Meal Prep

I have to say, last weeks meal planning and preparing went great! We ate all the food prepared, even into the weekend, so that stopped us from going out to eat, which we tend to do Friday to Sunday. We always try to not do it, but by Friday we always want something...

New Year Reset

If you're anything like me, the last few weeks have gotten out of control: routine, sleeping, eating right and working out. I've resolved, like I do most Mondays to be better, but this time for real! I've always liked healthy foods, but something about the holidays...
