Halibut Tacos

Hey all! Here is a quick, simple and really healthy meal I think you will love. In celebration of taco Tuesday, here is my healthier version of halibut tacos. I love them with the halibut fried, but that isn’t the healthiest. I choose instead to saute them in a pan and use much…

Hummus

Good homemade hummus is a skill that has always eluded me for some reason? I could never figure out how to get the texture I wanted, and also the flavor. Thankfully I’ve started following some really creative people on Instagram who gave me the motivation and information to make this finally happen! So…

Potato Nest with Avocado and Egg

Today I had the hardest time deciding what to eat for breakfast. Not that I didn’t have plenty of options, I just couldn’t decide? It was a weird feeling. Is this what toddlers feel like? Finally inspiration hit as I was putting away dishes. My trusty spiralizer came into view. I…

Gluten Free Sandwich Bread

After THREE attempts of trying to find a decent gluten free sandwich loaf, I think I finally found one I like pretty well! I mean it doesn’t taste exactly like a wheat loaf, but it’s pretty good! Here’s the recipe I’ve found so far. It’s…

Spiralized Beet and Apple Salad With Toasted Pecans

I’m still loving my new spiralizer! Do you own one? Here is the link for the one I bought and have been using, I love it and recommend it. Plus my boys are loving it too, and I swear it makes them more excited to eat their fruits and veggies! So I came…

Spicy Thai Chicken Salad

There was a restaurant I used to visit that served the best spicy Thai chicken salad, and then they stopped serving it. It was a tragic day when this happened. I didn’t even know what to order… I have tried since then to come up with the exact recipe they used, and…

Gluten Free Maple Pumpkin Mini Donuts

Okay, this recipe is going to be really similar to the whole wheat recipe, but made with my homemade gluten free flour. I’ve searched for quite awhile looking for a good homemade mix, because let’s face it, the store bought gluten free flours are REALLY expensive. I used the recipe from…

Bell Pepper Meatloaf

I’m always looking for good ways to help me keep up with my portion control. Intuitive eating is what I’m after, but realistically, I still need some outside help too. It’s why you will notice a lot of what I eat is small sizes. So, these little portion sized…

Tuna Avocado Cups

Tuna+avocado=true love. What makes this a healthier version of the original? I changed the mayo out for a nonfat plain greek yogurt! That’s it, it’s that simple. It makes a huge difference in calories, fat, sugars etc. So make your tuna salad like you normally do, use greek yogurt…

Roasted Parsnips

Tis the season for parsnips. Do you love them? Hate them? Indifferent? I think I’m on the fence, I would say I’m definitely in different. I like them okay, but don’t love them. It is a nice change from the usual veggies we have with meals though. Of course…
