Homemade Almond Milk and Paste!

Ok, I’m really proud of myself!  I had HEARD that making homemade almond milk was easy and that it was delicious and so good for you yadda yadda yadda but it just seemed to me that it would be messy and just not cost effective.  Well, I was wrong!  So what did it for me […]

EASY Spinach, Veggie and Egg White Bake.

Sometimes I am smart enough to prepare delicious healthy food ahead of time…instead of scrambling in the mornings to get creative with meals!  I love using spinach.  I put spinach in a lot of things-its such a cool easy way to add in your veggies. If not on a 7 Day Detox or a 21 […]

Anti-inflammatory Turmeric Golden Milk

Does anyone else who was a working mom feel like that from the time their babies were born until they were in school full time they had NO social life?  Yep-it was tough.  I had NO LIFE outside of going to work in a cubicle + taking care of the kids!  I was almost sad […]

DELICIOUS Carrot-Ginger Soup

Today I had a little extra breathing room to make another recipe for my blog thanks to this beautiful snow that’s coming down right now-I sort of had a feeling that my 6pm class would be cancelled.  Plus I’m on Phase 1 right now of the TLS 21 Day Challenge-6 days in with 1 more […]

Green and White HEALTHY Hash Browns!!

OH MY GAWD!  This was the BEST and because it was a HIT I had to hurry up and post right away even though I really should be reading Chapter 3 for Sports Management and working on my movement analysis for Kinesiology and studying for my Exercise Phys exam this week.  I just ate a […]

Chicken Meatballs with Asian Vegetables

Guess what.  Dinner was a hit and sometimes in my high-maintenance blended family what ends up being a hit totally surprises me.  So I wanted to hurry up and post it before someone in my family changed their mind and said it was “ok” instead of “really good”!!!  Tonight’s dinner was really simple!  I had […]

Smoky Veggie Egg Muffins for On-the-Go Goodness

Peeps, the last two weeks have been a shit show!  Seriously. I know I’m not alone in saying that sometimes eating healthy and properly can be a challenge when faced with a daunting schedule of activities.  I mean, seriously I’m supposed to get up at 5:30am for 6 am Crossfit, get 3 kids off to […]

Italian Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

Today, we were snowed in to 18″ and it was fantastic!  FINALLY, winter is here and I don’t mind one bit because this chick skis now!  BRING ON THE DRIFTS!  In this weather, this is when comfort food cravings REALLY set in.  But, because I have committed to myself and my family that we will […]

Red and Black Butternut Squash Enchilada Bake with Turkey (Healthy Comfort Food)

Last night’s dinner was AWESOME.  IT WAS A HIT.  A SMASH HIT!!!  Do you know how rare it is for a dinner to be hearty, healthy, AND a hit with ALL FIVE family members?  It’s like the way of the dodo bird rare.  My family loves their pasta, potatoes and rice but the truth is I just don’t […]

Edamame Fettuccini with a Spinach and Coconut Curry Sauce (Healthy, Gluten Free)

I began this recipe with intentions of serving a healthy interpretation of Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo.  But a can of coconut milk and 1/2 teaspoon of curry later, it became more of a left turn rather than an interpretation!  Albeit, it was certainly a light and delicious left turn.  I didn’t intend for this meal to be of Asian […]
