Cucumber Rollups

How about these tasty little bites for snacks, appetizers or even a side dish?? They are quick and completely healthy. Bring on those veggies! So here’s what you do. Peel your cucumber. I use my regular vegetable peeler for this. If you aren’t serving these right away, make sure and dry…

Crockpot Lentil Soup

What are your thoughts on lentils? Love them? Hate them? Neutral? My husband and I are pretty big fans of them, but the boys….well, they could probably live without them. We are currently in the middle of track season, and those meets are REALLY long. I knew I was going to need to have…

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…

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…

Grilled Pork Tenderloin

Pork tenderloin is such a great meat to cook for meals. Not only is the flavor awesome, it’s tender (hence the name…) but it is also really quick to grill. It can easily be ready, start to finish in 30 minutes. I glazed mine at the last minute with some homemade honey…

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…

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…

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…

Hummus and Cucumber Toast

This toast isn’t nearly as complicated to make as the spread we had at Saturdays brunch, but honestly, to me, it was just as good. I love fairly simple foods. This is a whole wheat toast, I made the loaf yesterday and these 2 pieces barely survived. It’s survival of the…
