How to Build the Perfect Smoothie

Back in October my husband and I did a 30 day green smoothie challenge with Simple Green Smoothies.  The idea was to have you drink a green smoothie every day for 30 days.  Each week they emailed you a grocery list along with four different smoothie recipes to try.  When we started this challenge I had […] Read more…

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Meatballs

Who is ready for the Super Bowl next Sunday?!?  While I am excited for all the excitement, betting, food, and fun it is kind of sad to see football season come to an end.  Watching football is a very popular weekend activity at our household since my husband is a high school football coach, and […] Read more…

Emergency Snack Kit

Trying to eat healthy while traveling or on the go can be one life’s greatest challenges.  Many of us are on the go eaters, not just during the busy holiday travel season, but while picking up the kids, heading to a class, meeting, or while running errands.  And with the convenience and temptation of fast food […] Read more…

White Chocolate Cranberry Protein Bites

Making energy bites for the week has become a part of my Sunday meal prep.  Half of my Sunday afternoon is spent in the kitchen, but it’s so worth it when I have breakfast, lunch, and snacks prepped for the entire week.  My husband and I typically both eat energy bites rather than a granola […] Read more…

Greek Yogurt Waffles

This Sunday is Mother’s Day and a great way to show mom your love is to serve her brunch.  After all, most restaurants will be packed and mom shouldn’t have to wait in  long lines or to be seated on her special day.  So treat her to a delicious brunch in the comfort of her own […] Read more…

Skinny Pomegranate Margaritas

Cinco de Mayo is next week AND it will be Taco Tuesday AND Teacher Appreciation Day!  Seriously so much to celebrate this May 5th!  And what would Cinco de Mayo or Taco Tuesday be without Margaritas?!? Many of us are guilty of going to a mexican restaurant and ordering one (or two or three) of those giant […] Read more…

Greek Salad with Vinaigrette

Hope you had a fabulous weekend that involved sunshine and outdoor activities.  I feel like everyone is in such a better mood when it finally feels like Spring outside.  I was able to get out of the suburbs and enjoy the nice weather and sites of DC on Saturday. My weekend also involved some indoor weekly […] Read more…
