Ranch Avocado Chicken Salad Wrap

Lunch time has become the quietest time of my day.  I know all that will change once summer vacation rolls around, but for now I use it to my advantage to exercise, run errands, clean house, shower, play catch up at work…and not necessarily in that order! Everything always gets done eventually.  And if it

Cilantro-Lime Quinoa Salad

I’ve been on a big quinoa kick lately.  To me it’s one of the most versatile complex carbohydrates.  And also a pretty easy side dish to make. I like the fact that you can add anything you want to it and it’s kind of hard to screw up; you can flavor it however you want

Avocado Caprese Salad

By now everyone knows I have a love affair with caprese salad.  What’s not to love?  Fresh tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, basil…yum! It’s no secret that if there’s a caprese salad on the menu when KB and I are out, we get one.  There’s just something about the combination of those ingredients that is satisfying.  The

Caprese Avocado Toast

I love caprese salad.  Especially in the summer.  Fresh tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, basil, olive oil, balsamic vinegar…what’s not to love?  When KB and I go out for Italian food and it’s on the menu, we normally order it.  I have a confession: sometimes I make it even when the ingredients aren’t in season.  It still

Curried Salmon Salad Sandwich

There’s something about curry that is kind of addictive.   I mean sure, there are people who probably don’t care for curry.  I am not one of those people.  Neither is KB.   That man will sprinkle the spicy curry powder on anything.  True story: one day I made beef and broccoli (a kind of

Spicy Grilled Ahi Tuna Salad Sandwich

Remember how I went on that grilled cheese bender a little while ago?  When I was making my Ahi tuna poke bowls, I had an extra piece of Ahi tuna.  Now I’ve never been one to waste a good piece of tuna, so I decided to make a tuna salad with my extra piece.  I

Buffalo Chicken Salad Wrap

Lunch time is always the bane of my existence.  I know it shouldn’t be since I work from home, but since LJB is usually with me, it becomes a challenge.  I’ve fallen into the habit of lunch out with a friend a lot more than I probably should, because it’s easier, I know he’ll eat

BLT Grilled Cheese

Remember how I went on a grilled cheese bender a few months ago?  I mean, can you blame a girl?  Carbs…cheese…what’s not to love about a grilled cheese?  So the other day I saw a picture/video of a BLT grilled cheese which made me drool…which meant (of course) I had to make one.  I didn’t

Spicy Avocado Toast

Toast is all the rage now-a-days.  Personally, I like toast because there’s carbs involved.  And deliciousness.  If that’s really a word. Toast is a good excuse to use carbs as a vehicle for what you really want to eat.  In a creative way.  You can pretty much make toast any way you want, it’s up

Marinated Tofu Stir Fry

I had a random hunk of tofu in my refrigerator.  I know I bought it for a certain recipe I wanted to make, but I forgot what it was. I’m crazy like that.  I buy things and then I forget what I bought them for.  It makes for a very random menu sometimes.  Anyways, there
