Maple Pork Chops with Brown Butter and Pumpkin Polenta

It's been raining since I woke up this morning, and last week was a really long one, so all my family wanted to do today was veg at home. A full day at home means time to experiment in the kitchen, and I'm glad I did because we had the perfect cozy dinner¬† tonight, which... Continue Reading →

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bars (Flourless, Grain Free, and Low Carb)

As a teacher, summer is obviously my favorite season. I don't complain about the heat because I'm so grateful to have 2 months off work every year, BUT... as soon as school starts back up, I'm ready for fall. I love the cooler weather, the plaid flannels, and yes, I'm one of those people who... Continue Reading →

Easy Homemade Guacamole

Guacamole is probably the recipe I make most often (I'm talking at least once but sometimes twice a week!). My one year old son absolutely loves it. He would literally just stick his face in the bowl if we let him, and so yeah, we have guacamole a lot. And I'm okay with that because... Continue Reading →

Slow Cooker Turkey Chili

Every time I make a new batch of freezer meals, this turkey chili makes the cut. I've been making this chili for years now. I love it for three reasons: it's so easy, it's super healthy (also low carb and grain free!), and it's so flavorful. I'm not usually a huge fan of ground turkey,... Continue Reading →

Chicken and Broccoli Spicy Thai Noodles

After a busy afternoon, I needed a dinner I could prep and have ready in under 30 minutes since I just made it home around dinner time. Chicken and broccoli are staples in this household, and I've always got rice noodles in the pantry, so tonight I whipped up these absolutely delicious Chicken and Broccoli... Continue Reading →

15 Minute Shrimp Tacos

Shrimp is one of my favorite proteins to use for an easy lunch or dinner because it cooks so quickly compared to other proteins. It's literally finished in 5-6 minutes, which is perfect, because I don't have much time to spare, especially on the weekdays. While my son napped today, I ran down to the... Continue Reading →

Mushroom and Caramelized Onion Frittata

By the looks of social media, it seems like most people these days do some form of meal prep (or at least try to!), and usually it involves prepping healthy work lunches for the week to avoid running out for fast food midday. With as busy as I am,¬† I've actually gotten into the habit... Continue Reading →

Spinach and Feta Turkey Burgers

I used to find it really hard to get excited about turkey burgers. I mean, don't get me wrong, plain turkey burgers are fine, but nothing to look forward to. More of a "health food substitute" for the burger you really want. Those were my exact thoughts... that is, until I started making spinach and... Continue Reading →

Protein Puppy Chow

It's my husband's birthday week, so I'm taking his requests for what I make this weekend. The first thing he requested was my Grain Free, Low Carb Chocolate Chip Cookies. He just cleaned out my freezer stash of these cookies last week and already wants more! I even said, "Are you sure you don't want... Continue Reading →

Slow Cooker Indian Butter Chicken (Lighter and Healthier than Indian Takeout!)

Okay, so Indian is my hands down all time favorite food. There is something about Indian food that is unlike every other cuisine, and my mouth is literally watering just thinking about it. I know that for a lot of people who haven't been exposed to Indian food, it's an acquired taste, but I maintain... Continue Reading →
