Kale, Sausage & White Bean Pasta

Kale, Sausage & White Bean Pasta

Looking for a healthy Itallian fix? This Kale, Sausage & White Bean Pasta will hit the spot. It's great hot or cold and is really filling. It's one of our family's favorite ways to incorporate kale into our diet.  [yumprint-recipe id='33'] [tabs...

Grown-Up Pork Chops & Applesauce

Grown-Up Pork Chops & Applesauce

When Justin told me a few years ago that pork chops should always be served with applesauce, I thought "how disgusting!" But apparently this is a thing...and has been for many families for many, many years. When I had pork chops as a kid, the only thing they had to be...

Kale Chips

Kale Chips

Kale. It's green, it's leafy, it's a superfood, and surprisingly tasty. Coming from a girl who really does not enjoy vegetables, that means a lot. Now, I'm not saying I will bust out witha raw kale salad or anything, but I do love cooked kale. I often sneak it into my...

Pumpkin Protein Pancakes

Pumpkin Protein Pancakes

Fluffy, healthy, tasty, and most importantly, Makenna approved! Weekend breakfasts are a big deal in our household. It's a great way to start our day as a family and the kids get a little control over what they get to eat. Makenna is hooked on pancakes, so she often...

Southwest Turkey

Southwest Turkey

Turkey is a staple of my diet. It's one of my favorite proteins because it's lean, it doesn't break the bank and you can add just about any flavor profile to it and it will taste great. My favorite is still my Greek inspired Turkey Skinikopita, but this new mix of...

Fruit + Granola + Yogurt

Fruit + Granola + Yogurt

It's true what they say about your taste buds changing when you consistently eat healthy. I used to never eat fruit or most vegetables. I had my first salad my sophomore year in college...a Caesar Salad from Red Lobster, but a salad nonetheless! I was pretty proud of...

Eggs: Plain and Simple

Eggs: Plain and Simple

Chances are, if you're into fitness and eating well, you are consuming a lot of eggs. In our household, we go through about 6 - 7 dozen eggs a week! These little devils contain about 6 grams of high quality protein and zero carbs. The whites have absolutely NO fat and...

Banana Berry Protein Muffins

Banana Berry Protein Muffins

Every week we buy a lot of bananas. Some weeks we may go through a dozen of them and some weeks we may only eat a couple, leaving me with way too many brown bananas. It kills me to throw them out, so I do my best to come up with creative ways to use them. My...

Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps

I've been getting a little burnt out on chicken breasts, so I decided to come up with a recipe that used some nutrient-rich dark meat. The dark meat found in poultry is a far healthier than we think it is. It has several nutrients and minerals that are known to...



Who doesn't love tacos? They are fun, versatile and incredibly tasty. Up until recently, I never considered making tacos without one of those pre mixed taco seasoning packets you buy at the grocery store. That's what i grew up with so that's what I always...

Chicken & Vegetable Pasta Salad

Chicken & Vegetable Pasta Salad

This pasta is kick ass! What better way to welcome Spring than with a cool pasta salad loaded with chicken and veggies. This one won't weigh you down like most pasta salads you see at almost every barbecue or picnic gathering. I kept it light with just some...

Afternoon Glory Protein Muffins

Afternoon Glory Protein Muffins

One of Justin's favorite desserts is carrot cake. He likes it so much we even had it as a layer in our wedding cake. I'm not quite as enthusiastic about the flavor myself, but it's tasty enough for me to make into something we can consume as much as our typical...

Blood Orange Cardamom Protein Bread

Blood Orange Cardamom Protein Bread

I've had a bit of a fascination with blood oranges here lately. I've always seen them on the Food Network shows or Top Chef and thought they were way too exotic to be found around here, so I never looked. They have a really cool reddish-orange skin and the inside is...
