Salmon with Avocado Cilantro Pesto

New year…new you!  Everyone always says that…hah.  It goes without saying that when a new year rolls around, everyone always resolves to eat healthy and work out more.  I work in the fitness industry and it’s our “busy season.”  We start to taper off around summer time when everyone goes on vacation and it picks


Crockpot Chicken Chili

Any time I can throw together a healthy meal in my crockpot AND get everyone to eat it, I consider it a win.  Yes, I know I constantly blog about how great my crockpot is.  And one day I will upgrade since I’ve had this one since 2002.  It’s been with me longer than KB.


Southwestern Frittata with Sweet Potato Crust

Breakfast is probably my favorite meal of the day.  And breakfast for dinner?  Forget about it.  You can’t beat brinner.  Eggs, bacon, sausage, cheese.  The possibilities are endless.   So I’ve been on a big frittata kick lately.  You can pretty much put whatever you want in them (meat, veggies, cheese) and throw it in


Crockpot Paleo Mexican Meatballs

I was on a big paleo kick recently.  I don’t think I could do it forever though.  Something about the “no-dairy” that gets me every time.  If you know me – you know I love my cheese.  But I can eat paleo for short periods of time and certainly for whole meals that don’t even


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,


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


Turkey Roulade in Green Curry Coconut Sauce

I’ve been on a big curry kick lately.  I find if I want KB to eat something, all I have to do is put it in a curry sauce and he will gobble it right up!  So of course in keeping with my random theme from yesterday, I have another random meal for you.  In


Crockpot Lemon Pepper Chicken

The other day…ok, a long time ago (I’ve had this blog in the queue for a while now)…I had a huge bag full of lemons and I wasn’t really sure what to do with them. Lemons are one of those things that you don’t really need a lot of.  You can use the peel and


Paleo Sweet Potato Nachos

Nachos.  Chips.  Meat.  Melted Cheese.  Nothing better.  Unless you’re trying to eat healthy.  And then you have to find something that will satisfy that craving for nachos, but not have all the calories and fat. So I really can’t claim credit for the idea of this recipe.  I saw it floating around one of the
