Curried chicken and broccoli. It's been a long time since I've been in the kitchen trying new recipes. We got in a rut of eating the same rotation of meals. But as our healthy living journey continues one step at a time I'm finally back enjoying cooking again instead of it being a chore. We're trying a tonne of new healthier recipes. I've been nursing a minor back injury after a bad weight lifting session yesterday but this meal was a perfect way to end my day. #healthymeals#healthiereveryday#curry#cooking#feedingmyarmy#yumm6
Lazy dinner. I swear these quick salads have been a life saver while unpacking and not having time to go grocery shopping yet. .
I had some chicken wings in the freezer. I seasoned them up with old bay, a little salt and @primalpalate meat & potatoes then pan fried them with ghee and finish with @franksredhot.
Served with romaine, fresh peaches and avocado slices. Finished with @primalkitchenfoods sesame ginger dressing.
Really proud of this dinner tonight. I made carrot noodle Pad Thai with cabbage, mushrooms, water chestnuts, and shrimp. My sauce was super easy too - a little chicken bone broth, coconut milk, coconut aminos, almond butter, and a scoop of Further Food collagen peptides. I garnished it with oven roasted bok choy and bean sprouts. It was so good, and so easy too!
Recreating my FAVORITE meals from restaurants is something I LOVE to do! 😍I’m OBSESSED with a place in Boston bc of the QUINOA TACO salad! Tonight…made it our way & DANG did it turn out good!
People always ask me how I don’t get sick of eating healthy…well…because this food tastes AMAZING!! ❤️🙌100% Whole Foods Plant Based with ALL the flavor! Plus, I always have my share of treats too to keep my life in balance. 🍪🍦🍰But when I hit rock bottom years ago, I knew I needed to FEEL healthy, not just want to look it. This is when I started educating myself more📚, joined an online accountability group✅, and got REAL with myself😮. If I wanted change, I had to take the steps to make it happen!! 😁It is never too late to make yourself a priority! So happy I took that step and joined my 1st accountability group!
For sure this meal will be on our menu more often…Chopped romaine—Quinoa—Spicy Seitan Chorizo—Chick Peas—Tomato—Cauliflower—Peppers & Onions-Cheese sauce topping. 🤤YUM YUM YUM! .
Full on sinus infection and sore throat over here, but still managed to whip up a yummy dinner. Luckily I am not so congested that I can’t taste (that is the WORST when that happens). Tonight’s bowl featured cauliflower rice, pork chops, feta, radishes, avocado and salsa. Thank you #instantpot and #traderjoes chili lime seasoning for this deliciousness.
Another delicious summer meal on the patio! Love these summer nights! ❤️ Tonight I made salmon with a dijon garlic sauce, green bean almondine and my leftover parmesan polenta with a homemade sauce of fresh tomatoes and garlic! 😍
To make the sauce for the salmon, I combined Dijon mustard, fresh minced garlic, lemon juice, olive oil and capers. I seasoned 2 salmon fillets with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper and placed in a baking dish. I topped the salmon with the Dijon sauce, reserving a little bit to serve on top when the fish was done. Next I placed the dish in the oven at 400° for 15 minutes. .
I reheated my Parmesan polenta on the stove, adding some chicken broth and more shaved Parmesan to get its creamy consistency back. I made a fresh batch of my quick “tomato sauce” by heating up 1 tsp of olive oil over low heat, adding fresh minced garlic, 3 chopped garden fresh tomatoes, seasoning with sea salt and sautéing until cooked down.
Apparently #wafflewednesday is a thing!! and a very popular thing!! Hashtags are a funny thing - I still don't even really fully understand them - do you? -
I'm the butt of an ongoing joke from my hilarious #millennial sister-in-law who clearly knows way more than i do about hashtags! -
I found a great #glutenfree waffle recipe I want to try, but realized I don't have a waffle iron!! but my mom does!! SO i'm hoping to head there this weekend and try it out! Would you like the recipe BEFORE i try it, or after I try it and share?? Let me know!
But hashtags and waffles are so important - it's how we all connect!! What's your fave hashtag to use?? Would love to know!

- 1/4 de leche de almendras (la receta la encuentran en #leches_hfl ) - 2 huevos - 1 cdta de polvo para hornear o bicarbonato - Pizca de sal -Endulzante al gusto, use panela orgánica -Frosting: Yogurt griego + canela en polvo
🔥Precalenta el horno a 180c.
1.En una bowl se mezclan los ingredientes húmedos (bananos, huevos, leche) y en otro los secos (harinas, sal, polvo, linaza, leche dorada, endulzante)
2. Juntamos ambas mezclas e incorporamos bien todos los ingredientes, luego llevamos la mezcla a moldes de muffins (si no son de silicona engrasar primero) y se hornean durante 15-20 minutos aproximadamente (el tiempo depende del horno así que debes estar pendiente).
3. Una vez listos esparamos que se enfrien, desmoldamos y agregamos el frosting de yogurt griego + canela al gusto y listo!!
80% of my results and maintenance of those results is due to good nutrition. Mornings are the hardest for me because I'm always running late! But this shake allows me to have a nutritious breakfast that keeps me full and keeps me from giving in to my sweet tooth...at least most days because I am human and chocolate 🍫 is delicious!
SPICY TILAPIA WITH SPINACH 🐟 10 oz raw tilapia (should yield one 7-oz cooked serving)

2 tsp olive oil or canola oil
¾ tsp paprika
¼ tsp red pepper flakes
¼ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp hot sauce
Preheat oven to 350° F. Combine paprika, red pepper flakes, garlic powder, and hot sauce. Brush olive oil over fish. Coat fish with seasoning mixture. Lay tilapia flat in a baking pan. Drain juice from canned tomatoes; place tomatoes on top of tilapia. Tear spinach into bite-sized pieces; place around tilapia in pan. Bake 30 minutes or until tilapia can be easily flaked with a fork and is opaque.

I am LIVING for this smoothie bowl. 😍😋💜
I put off trying açai for a while, but I finally had some today!😋 I have NO regrets, because it tastes just as amazing as it looks💜🌱 For the smoothie I used one @traderjoes açaí packet with 1/2 cup of berries, one beet from @lovebeets, and some water! I topped it off with extra berries, kiwi, and my oil free granola recipe that you can find on my blog 😋
What are your favorite smoothie bowl toppings?💚
Healthy Nachos ➡️ Eating healthy does not have to be boring ... I repeat ... does NOT need to be boring! I was totally one of those people who thought Lean Cuisines, Subway, and salads were the answer to eating healthy! 😂 Tonight my hubby made some nachos made with homemade tortilla chips made in the air fryer, ground turkey, black beans, lettuce, tomatoes, salsa, and a little plain Greek yogurt in place of sour cream! Delicious and healthy!
