Turkey Sausage Lentil Chili

Turkey Sausage Lentil Chili

It’s almost fall.  I keep telling myself that anyways.  Every morning when I wake up for my 5 am run and it seems a little cooler, I think, it’s almost fall.  One of my favorite seasons in New England.   I used to like it because it was the start of football.  Now I like

Clean Asian Turkey Lettuce Wraps

The other day I made lettuce wraps for dinner.  I was trying to eat clean and healthy and I thought it would be a good change of pace.  I’ve made lettuce wraps before and every time they are a little bit different.  I like these because they are made with very little salt, low fat,

Honey Soy Marinated Cod

I’m always in search of that one recipe.  That one recipe that is not only healthy, but that all four of us will devour.  I’m not gonna lie…it’s kind of challenging.  I know I can always do some kind of cheesy, carb-laden pasta and it will disappear.  But I can’t do that every day or

Sea Scallops with Corn and Avocado Salsa

Clean Southwest Turkey Quinoa Meatloaf Muffins

I went on a clean-eating bender this summer.  Yes I like to eat.  But I also like to be healthy.  So I find times when I cook clean somewhat refreshing.   I try to come up with ideas for recipes that include flavor combinations that both KB and I like and then make it clean

Raspberry Chocolate Chip Frozen Yogurt

There’s something very satisfying about picking your own fruit.  Yes I know it’s more work.  And sometimes you get all sweaty and sore from bending over to pick fruit from the tree or bush.  But it’s much better seeing where the fruit came from and what was done to it before you put it in
