A Classic: Steak and Potatoes

I’m not a huge meat eater to begin with (in case you didn’t notice), so I don’t cook a lot of steaks.  Honestly, for the price of the meat I just can’t justify buying it for myself.  But, Ben absolutely loves steak…I swear, his stomach is a bottomless pit when it comes to steak.  So, […]

Quinoa Chicken Sausage Bowl

Ahh, an oldie but a goodie.  This bowl is a super customizable dinner, which makes it a great way to clean out the fridge – just combine whatever veggies you need to use up with a healthy grain like quinoa, farro, or brown rice, and some chicken sausage!  In this case, I’m making this recipe […]

Shrimp Tacos with Mango Salsa

The weather may not scream “Spring” yet, but I’ve decided to act like it is.  Daylight Savings Time has passed, it’s almost St. Patty’s Day, and I’m going to will the weather into being warm.  These shrimp tacos are here to help!  As you know, I love doing Taco Tuesday but I’m not huge into […]

Kale Pesto Cauliflower Pizza

I absolutely love pesto, but always get an upset stomach afterwards.  It took me a while to realize that it’s because of the high fat content, but once I did, I started experimenting with ways to make it work for me.  Adding veggies increases the fiber, which helps my body digest the fat without going […]

Meal Plan 3/11/19

Last week at my job means that while work isn’t particularly stressful (I’ve already handed off most of my work, and my co-workers are all super supportive of my transition), I have a lot to do to prepare for a new job.  I was offered a job at a great firm, but am still in […]

Sheet-Pan Chicken Shawarma

While I love meal planning and creating recipes myself, I also love finding other food blogs with amazing recipes and trying those out.  I try to find at least one each week to highlight, and this week it is the Sheet-Pan Chicken Shawarma from Half Baked Harvest.  I am copying this recipe 100% this week […]

Spaghetti Veggies and Meatballs

Intent: Ease, Nutrition, TimeTime: 15 minutes This one is a go-to of mine for busy nights, and I love how easy it is (and how few dishes I have to do).  The pasta is made from veggies and lentils, the meatballs are free of antibiotics, artificial flavors, preservatives, etc.  And while I love meatballs, they […]

Salmon Pot Pie

Intent: Innovation, Money, SoulTime: 45 minutes For Meatless Monday (on a day that started out at -2 degrees) I’m going with creamy comfort food.  Yes, this meal has butter and flour which I don’t usually use, but I also added in extra veggies and subbed almond milk for cream.  Between that and the salmon, this […]

Roasted Tandoori Veggie Bowls

Intent: Nutrition, InnovationTime: 1+ hour Lunches this week are crispy, creamy, tangy, sweet, and healthy! Everything in this dish brings something to the table, from the protein in the yogurt and quinoa to the extra vitamins and minerals in the veggies.  If I’m going to be working out more, I want to make sure I […]

Meal Plan 3/4/2019

For Lent this year I’ve decided to commit to a good habit for 40 days instead of restricting something bad.  I’m all about positivity, and I think focusing on doing good for myself will give me a better outlook than disallowing something “bad”.  I’m not a huge fan of “good” and “bad” in general, I […]
