Just over the past year or so, I’ve fallen in love with squash and zucchini and add it to all kinds of recipes. If you are looking for clean eating recipes or low fat meal ideas, these recipes are fabulous. Here are 5 healthy squash and zucchini recipes [Read more...]
I love easy recipes! Especially those that I can throw in one pan together and bake so I can focus on other tasks at hand. This recipe for Rosemary Chicken and Veggies in Mustard Sauce turned out amazing!! I used all fresh veggies including carrots, onions, red potatoes, and green beans. You could use any kind of chicken you want, however my kids requested legs (which I hate) so I bought a whole cut up chicken. Serve with a simple green salad for a healthy easy dinner.
This recipe is AdvoCare 24-Day Challenge friendly.
Recently, I’ve seen all kinds of yummy looking recipes all over facebook. Since many are shared, and not linked to the original source I am a little leary of trying the recipe. So, when a recipe gets my attention I prefer to test it out in my kitchen.
Of course I am not a great recipe follower, so I tend to change up the ingredients a bit to suit my family’s taste. We loved this recipe, although it was a little spicy. I made homemade Mexican Brown rice to serve with the Baked Chicken Fajitas to complete the meal. If you are looking for low carb chicken recipes, I would suggest serving the chicken fajitas in lettuce wraps or whole grain tortillas.
I whipped together this super easy pasta salad this morning and thought I’d share my recipe. My daughter even said that it was so delicious it was definitely Pinterest worthy. This Pasta Salad recipe is chock full of fresh veggies, in fact, there are more vegetables than pasta. You could add in whatever vegetables you have on hand. I basically cleaned out our fridge, chopped all the vegetables, and tossed them in. Viola we have a healthy Pasta Salad. It is best chilled overnight but I doubt we’ll be able to wait that long.

While dad’s out grilling this 4th of July – prep and pop these sweet potatoes in the oven to bring a nice side dish to the table. (Or make cheesy grilled potatoes in foil packets!)
Roasted Sweet Potatoes are so yummy and delicious! I used to make them all the time, I don’t know why I forgot about this recipe.
In my quest to continue to eat clean and healthy this recipe came to mind. It was super easy and my kids LOVED it! Looks like we will be adding Roasted Sweet Potatoes to the dinner rotation.
I made a pork tenderloin in the crock pot and served with a side of green beans and a salad.
A couple of weeks ago, my son and I went to Olive Garden for our date night. They had a new citrus grilled chicken that was absolutely amazing!! I recently found this recipe and thought I’d try to make it at home. You can change up this recipe to make it even more healthy. When I make it I’m going to leave out the flour and either use whole grain noodles or just leave out the noodles entirely. Serve with a side of steamed veggies and a green salad for a healthy meal!
My family loves Mexican food. Since we’ve been eating healthy the past two years I’ve tried to find Mexican recipes that are healthy and delicious. This recipe for Fiesta Chicken Soup is one of my family’s favorites. It’s so easy to make, simply throw ingredients in the slow cooker and go about your business. At dinner time you’ll have a delicious recipe that your family will love. [Read more...]
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.
