One Pan Pesto Zoodles

Howdy my friends! So today I’ve got a super simple, heavy on the veggie, one pan meal to share with you. It can be made vegetarian or with meat AND for everyone with food allergies- it is gluten free and could be vegan if you either made or bought a pesto with no parmesan cheese. My favorite part? Everything’s cooked in one pan and it’s very light, making it the perfect lunch or dinner as the weather get’s warmer. The beautiful part about these basic recipes is that you could really make it your own! I included chicken sausage in the recipe as it was for dinner and we wanted to add a little more […]

Coconut Crusted Chicken Asian Salad w/ Spicy Peanut dressing

Get ready for a salad that cures the ” oh no, not another boring salad” sentiment and really steps up your office lunch game! The chicken is crusted with unsweetened coconut and baked- so it’s nice and crispy without the grease & fat from frying and topped with a delicious peanut asian dressing. Highly recommend you cycling this into your Sunday meal prep plan! It would also make some delicious asian taco’s with a shredded carrot and cabbage slaw… I’ll work on testing out that idea asap. First thing’s first, all props go to Clean Eating for the chicken recipe! While I did make my favorite peanut dressing and spice up the salad a bit with extra […]

Brussels & Bacon Pasta

This is the perfect spring dish… can you tell I’m dreaming of warmer weather as I stare out at the remnants of a late march snow? It’s my favorite type of dish in that it’s a combo of light and fresh flavors, lots of veggies and lemon juice, paired with indulgence in the form of bacon and parmesan cheese.It makes for a really easy weeknight dinner or pasta dish for a picnic or BBQ. I’m already envisioning eating this at vineyards this summer paired with bottles of rose or white wine. Sigh. Bottles are acceptable- right?  The best part, this only takes 10 ingredients to make and 20 minutes to cook.  Ingredients: brussel sprouts, asparagus, lemon, white onion, garlic, chicken […]

Lemon Dijon Chicken

So, it’s day 2 of the whole 30 (the second attempt) and I’ve already dropped the ball on being organized and meal prepping. This, I can already tell, and yes I have read over & over, is the key to succeeding on this change in eating. The inner planner in me loves this in theory and then oversleeps and runs out the door without thawing chicken or doesn’t make a list for the grocery store. This is one of those evenings when I come home and feel crazed I’m so hungry and on the verge of making a terrible desperate food decision.. especially when hearing my other half had a burger for lunch. Yes, we […]

Sheet Pan Tandoori Chicken

Enter a delicious, easy clean up, sheet pan dinner! You can make it ahead & let it marinate for up to a day. Adam and I follow the “whoever cooks doesn’t clean” rule, but with two people who equally love to cook and equally hate the dishes, it often results in rock paper scissor battles OR, the worst method…. who can out wait the other. But- this recipe is the easiest clean up ever. You fold up the tin foil and throw it away! TADA! Leaving more time for your evening routine- whether that be Netflix binging, reading, exercising (go you) or putting kiddo’s to bed.  Plus- did I mention it’s delicious? Do not let […]
