Ginger Roasted Salmon with Broccoli

Intention: Nutrition, Time, EaseServings: 4 I can’t get away with doing actual Meatless Mondays in our household – vegetarian meals are totally not Ben’s thing.  So, I compromise by doing seafood on most Mondays! I absolutely love salmon, and always have. Even as a child, when I was the pickiest eater ever, I loved salmon! […]

Sweet Potato Grain Bowl

Intention: NutritionServings: 4 I love vegetables, but for some reason the word salad just has an off ring to me.  When I hear salad I think of those sad side salads of tasteless romaine and cherry tomatoes that you get at old fashioned restaurants.  Yes, those salads have a time and a place, but when […]

Salsa Egg Scramble

Intention: Time, Money, Nutrition, EaseServings: 1 I’m going to be completely honest here…I am not a morning person.  If it weren’t for our dog (Guster), I probably would roll out of bed just in time to go to work.  Even now, I have a carefully timed routine so that I can walk him and get […]

Chicken Stroganoff

Intention: Soul, NutritionServings: 4 My boyfriend absolutely loves stroganoff, but it’s traditionally very high in fat and carbs with low nutritional value.  I took his dad’s recipe and put my own spins on it to fix some of its shortcomings. With extra mushrooms, no extra butter/flour, and Greek yogurt instead of sour cream, this version […]

Meal Plan 12/31/2018 to 1/6/2019

Each week, usually during a lunch break or while I binge watch Chopped, I create my meal plan for the following week. For me, this is fun, because I love reading recipes and creating my own. But, I know not everyone shares my weird love of recipe creation, so I thought I’d share my meal […]

Cauliflower Pizza with Mint Pea Sauce and Feta

Intentions: Time, NutritionServings: 4 When it comes to lunches, I have a few requirements.   They have to be something I can make quickly on a Sunday or Monday night, and reheat throughout the week.  One of the most important things when it comes to healthy meal planning is knowing your lifestyle and what you’re […]

Roasted Autumn Medley

Intention: Ease, Money, NutritionServings: 4 OK, confession.  I HATE doing dishes, but I’m also a bit of a control freak.  When Ben tries to do the dishes for me, he ends up doing them “wrong” and we end up with me doing the dishes anyways. So, a focus of mine when creating recipes is minimizing […]

Cajun Shrimp Over Mashed Veggies and Garlic Spinach

Intentions: Nutrition, TimeServings: 4 The New Year seemed like the perfect time to finally get this blog thing off the ground.  I’ve been toying with the idea for years, brainstorming and re-brainstorming.  It took a while for me to figure out exactly what I want to do…and then I realized, I really just want to post […]
