What's For Breakfast?

Posted on 20 January, 2016 at 16:35 Comments comments (1899)

Breakfast is always a necessity for me to start my day. On the days I am rushing out the door, I want a healthy breakfast to take with me. I will often make these Walnut Chia Blueberry Banana Muffins and freeze them in individual bags so I can grab one, heat it up and go. For a little extra protein, pair it with a hard boiled egg and you have a quick and healthy breakfast to go. Enjoy!

Favorite Holiday Vegetable Recipes

Posted on 22 December, 2015 at 13:05 Comments comments (10228)

Christmas is almost here and as I prepare my menu for Christmas dinner, I thought I would share some of my favorite holiday vegetable recipes. It is always a good idea to have a few vegetables on the menu to lighten the calorie load of your holiday meal. Below is my new favorite salad, a Pear Gorganzola Walnut Salad – super simple. I have also included my recipe for Oven Roasted Apsaragus. This recipe is great for a holiday meal, but also simple enough for a weeknight side. Hope you enjoy!
