Paleo Meal Plan - an affordable week of Paleo eats |

Paleo Meal Plan: May 10 – 16

Follow this blog on Pinterest I must say – I felt fantastic this week after this Paleo meal plan. Even though I added Greek yogurt and cheese here and there, last week was the first in five that I didn’t get lunch or a smorgasbord of snacks catered into work. I need to capture that […]

Whole wheat applesauce waffles - fluffy waffles make for a healthy breakfast, even served with real maple syrup and butter! |

Whole Wheat Applesauce Waffles

Follow this blog on Pinterest I didn’t realize how much I loved to eat waffles until I actually started making them – and devouring them. Or how delicious REAL maple syrup tastes! I admit, for many years I fell into the ignorantly blissful trap that is sugar-free syrup. And pretty much sugar free anything. Not […]

Walnut peanut butter - make this easy homemade nut butter for a clean eating snack |

Walnut Peanut Butter

Follow this blog on Pinterest One of the hardest ‘rules’ of a true Paleo diet would be the no peanut butter thing. And no peas or black beans. I guess I’m a fan of legumes. What’s a legume? In the simplest terms, it’s a seed that grows in a long pod. Peanuts should have been […]

Paleo Meal Plan: May 3 – 9

Follow this blog on Pinterest A paleo meal plan…say whaaaat? Yes. You read that correctly! Kyle had decided he wants to try going Paleo. Maybe for a little while…maybe for a long while…but we’re gonna try it out! Or at least, Kyle will. I’m apprehensive about following through 100%. I like beans and peanut butter. […]

Garlic zucchini noodles - a low-carb option for a quick and easy dinner! |

Garlic Zucchini Noodles

Follow Slim Sanity on Pinterest I’ve totally failed at my latest blogging goal to create more pasta recipes. Pasta is delicious and often times shunned when people want to eat healthier. My original intention was to show people the endless healthy pasta-bilities… But instead I’m just hanging out over here making noodles outta vegetables. I […]

Peanut Butter Chia Granola Bars

Follow this blog on Pinterest Today’s recipe is for delicious, no bake, calorie-dense peanut butter chia granola bar that are packed full of nutrition – and have great staying power.

Weekly Meal Plan: April 26 – May 2

Follow this blog with Bloglovin’ I’m cheating on my crock-pot this week. The grill has officially squeezed between me and one of my most beloved kitchen appliances. The warmer weather is just begging us to get outside and grill! Or, I’m begging Kyle to go outside and grill. It’s practically the same thing. Although we […]

Eggs with Black Bean and Mushroom Saute

Follow this blog on Pinterest Barkley doesn’t seem like he wants to have a conversation. So it’s time for a brain dump. I think food commercials should be illegal. Like, banned until the end of time. I’m sitting on the couch watching Grey’s Anatomy, doing a little food editing on the side, and BAM…this delicious […]

Whole wheat carrot waffles - a healthy breakfast you can take on the go! |

Whole Wheat Carrot Waffles

Follow this blog on Pinterest Completing a wedding registry was one of our favorite ‘to dos’ we crossed off the wedding list. Picking out brand new items and deciding what you’d want your new home to look like was a ton of fun. For me, browsing the kitchen gadgets and dishes was the best – […]

Weekly meal plan - affordable, healthy meals all week long! |

Weekly Meal Plan: April 19 – 25

Follow this blog with Bloglovin’ That cat is outta the bag. I’ve got a new full-time job. Now that I leave the house at 7 AM, and don’t get home until 6/7 PM, meal planning is more important than ever. I need lunches and snacks ready to grab and go in the morning, and dinner […]

Painting A New House, Creating a New Life

Follow this blog on Pinterest ‘New life’ might be overkill. But as reference to a career, I say it’s debatable. I never knew the phrase ‘time flies when you’re having fun’ could ever apply to a job. For so long I’ve envied those who ‘live the dream,’ enamored with what they do on a daily […]

avocado egg salad 6 - 1

Avocado Egg Salad with Bacon Crumbles

Follow this blog on Pinterest I recently had a reader request for more salad and wrap type lunch recipes. I then remembered this awesome recipe I put up on the blog AGES ago, but took down because it needed some major photo revamping. So last Sunday after this photo shoot, lunch was served! I don’t […]

Weekly Meal Plan: April 12 – 18

Follow this blog with Bloglovin’ I’m cheating a little bit with my meal plan this week….it’s gonna be just about the exact.same.thing. as last week. See, we decided to hire painters to come in and do an overhaul of our house. In anticipation of not being able to access anything in our cupboards, we prepped […]

Healthy Pumpkin Snickerdoodles - a healthy version of a delicious spice cookie! Who says we can't eat pumpkin all year round? |

Pumpkin Snickerdoodles with Chocolate Chips

So I know pumpkin is supposed to be super popular in the fall. But I had a major food blogger fail this year and published zero pumpkin recipes all fall season long. Actually I take that back. I posted pumpkin pie muffins at the end of December… But I guess that’s still kinda after the […]

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Remember when I bragged about Kyle going all Chef Boy-ar-Ehle? Well, he did it again. And it was really, really tasty. Roasted red pepper hummus always used to be a crucial item on the grocery list. It’s Kyle’s favorite Sabra flavor. But a while back, when I got my food processor, I ditched the store […]
