Roasted Eggplant & Red Pepper Quinoa + Apple Kale Salad

Morning! I had another fun “ingredient potluck” dinner last night with my blogger buddy Gena! I’m loving these dinner dates — we get to catch up and enjoy each other’s company and a delicious, wholesome meal, but without spending money (and with the added bonus of clearing out the random odds and ends in our fridges). Perfect! Like last time, Continue Reading …

High Protein Oatmeal Recipe

I have something good for you all today: a High Protein Oatmeal Recipe! Remember when I tried “Oatless Oats” awhile ago but wasn’t a big fan of the texture?

The original Continue Reading …

It’s not exactly healthy (cheese and corn chips are involved), but it’s delicious and has always been one of my absolute favorites. Getting kids to eat salad/veggies in any form is definitely a Continue Reading …

Hidden Veggie Cherry Lemon Smoothie Recipe

I have a new obsession. It’s been so hot here that pretty much all I want to eat are smoothies. I may have had one for dinner last night. Don’t judge. (Some pita chips and hummus made the cut, too. I’m so classy.) My new favorite smoothie? A hidden veggie Cherry Lemon Smoothie. You’ve got your protein (milk and yogurt), veggies (spinach — Continue Reading …
