Apricot Chicken with Broccoli and Asparagus Recipe

Apricot Chicken Recipe

Kasey here, as we continue on our journey of healthy eating I am always trying to come up with new recipes that my family will love. Last night, I made Apricot Chicken with broccoli and asparagus and it was amazing!! This recipe was inspired by Olive Garden’s Venetian Apricot Chicken, however I have made several adjustments to the recipe to make it easier to prepare.

This recipe is AdvoCare 24-Day Challenge friendly. If you are limiting your carb intake then you’ll want to omit the potatoes. [Read more...]

My family loves all things pumpkin! I’m always looking for healthy breakfast recipes to try out, I thought pumpkin and oatmeal would make the perfect combination. You could even make pumpkin oatmeal in a slow cooker and wake up to yummy homemade goodness in the morning. I decided to make it this morning, so I’ll have to try using my slow cooker next time.

Homemade Popcorn

We’d appreciate your “Pinning” this recipe,
just cick the Pinterest button at the top of the post.

Since changing the kinds of foods that we eat last year, homemade microwave popcorn has become a favorite snack at our house.

There are so many ways you can change up this recipe, but the recipes included below are our favorites. I’d love to hear your ideas! [Read more...]

Veggie Spaghetti Recipe: So Easy and Delicious!

veggie spaghetti

My husband’s office is less than a mile from our house so he usually comes home for lunch everyday. We’ve been really busy in the evenings so sometimes I cook at lunch instead of dinner. A couple of weeks ago, I made this amazing spaghetti chock full of fresh veggies I didn’t want to go bad. My son HATES squash, I mean absolutely HATES it. However, when I made this spaghetti he had no idea he was eating squash. In fact, my kids are so used to veggies I don’t think they noticed all the veggies in their spaghetti. If your kids are picky you may want to chop the veggies finely in a food processor or chopper first. Otherwise, they will never know and you can feel good about feeding them a healthy meal. Instead of homemade sauce, I used ALDI’s organic marinara sauce and organic diced tomatoes. Amazing y’all seriously.  [Read more...]
