If, like many of us, you may have gained a pound or two over the holidays, then you came to the right place. For the month of January I’ll be posting ultra skinny recipes to get us on track, and those numbers on the scale in check.
This asparagus salad with a sweet balsamic dressing is the perfect way to get back to your healthy eating lifestyle.
Mondays are back to reality days, aren’t they?
This time of year when I’ve spent the weekend shopping, shmoozing with friends, and generally goofing off, I need Mondays to get back on track. That includes a few lighter meals to ward off any holiday pounds that might have crept on over the weekend.
This easy Mediterranean chopped salad with tender baby shrimp and feta cheese fits the bill perfectly.
With the Thanksgiving holiday behind us, it’s time to try something new like these roasted cauliflower planks I found at Tasting Spoons.
By itself, this recipe for roasted cauliflower isn’t all that impressive, but wait until you see what happens when these flower-like gems are topped with a colorful Mediterranean salad!
I’m sorry to see summer come to an end. Here in Seattle, we’ve had an amazing run of glorious sun. If you’re a Seattleite, you know summers like this are few and far between.
If you have picky eaters in the house to feed, then this healthy meal is perfect for them.
Most folks with fussy tastes will eat chicken, so these chicken meatballs packed with kale and Parmesan are a good protein choice.
The trick to keeping ground chicken moist, is not to over cook it. Since we aren’t frying these easy meatballs because they’re made in mini muffin tins, they cook quickly without any added fat. This makes them calorie friendly too!
Do people avoid cooking because recipes have too many ingredients and complicated instructions?
As my lovely sister-in-law and I were drooling over salad recipes this weekend, Vanessa made just that comment.
She said that many recipes required an amazing list of ingredients, most of which she would have to buy, and probably never use again.
What’s more, the instructions were endless. As a working mother of two young boys, she had no time, or energy, to tackle a cooking project.
I love date day with the girls.
Especially when the date includes Debbie, Sandi and good food like this kale salad with apples, cucumbers and ham.
The inspiration for this crunchy salad came from a local Asian food truck. I was so intrigued by the combination of ingredients that I had to attempt to recreate it myself, and who better to try it out on then Debbie and Sandi.
Every Thursday morning I take great delight in opening the box of fruits and vegetables delivered by my local CSA.
Among the many advantages of ordering fruit and vegetables from a CSA if you don’t have a home garden, is the opportunity to try produce you wouldn’t pick otherwise. An example would be these garlic scapes.
