Maple Chicken Sausage and Apple-Pecan Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Maple Chicken Sausage and Apple-Pecan Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

I whipped these up one morning several weeks ago without even planning them. Typically that’s how some of my best meals are created – look at what I have and let it inspire me. At least this is how breakfast goes because breakfast is almost […]

Mini Protein Cheesecakes

Mini Protein Cheesecakes

Happy Valentine’s Day! This is an old one that I’ve updated for you all. So these little mini protein cheesecakes were inspired by this recipe. But turned out a bit different as you can tell. First of all I did mini cheesecakes because then there […]

Greek Turkey Meatballs

Greek Turkey Meatballs

I’ve made these a dozen times and have yet to post them. Actually I technically posted the recipe as part of my Meatball Curry Soup. But they’re worthy of their own spotlight. They’re a Justin favorite and when I find one of those recipes I definitely […]

Strawberry Cashew Butter Protein Oatmeal

Strawberry Cashew Butter Protein Oatmeal

I’m starting to have sweet breakfasts more often since I have given up eggs for 30 days (UPDATE: I gave up eggs permanently since this was first written). This means protein waffles and oatmeal galore!! And I’m cutting back on the healthy treats I always […]

Allspice-Roasted Chickpeas and Maple Sausage Hash

Another pull-some-slips-of-paper-out-of-a-jar recipe. If you don’t know what that means, look at Monday’s post for the sausage and white bean chili – it explains everything. This one is inspired by two different challenges. The first being to come up with new breakfast ideas that don’t […]

Crockpot Italian Sausage and White Bean Chili

I recently made a game for myself. It’s purpose is to challenge my creativity when it comes to developing recipes. I made a jar full of strips of paper that either have an ingredient or a type of food written on them. The game is I […]

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

I love looking at hummus flavors in the store and then copying them. Hummus is healthier and cheaper to make yourself. Plus it’s quick and easy. It’s a win-win. I wanted to make a roasted red pepper flavor for a while now, but red peppers themselves […]

Spicy Sriracha Mustard Tuna Salad

Spicy Sriracha Mustard Tuna Salad

Tuna salad is one of the easiest things to make. I keep a couple cans of tuna stocked in case I need an extra meal or two during the week. Nothing needs to be cooked. It’s simply a matter of putting things in a bowl […]

Vegan Lentil and Spinach Tikka Masala

Vegan Lentil and Spinach Tikka Masala

Ahh, yes. Indian food became a favorite of mine in 2013. I never had the opportunity to eat Indian food before that. This was also shortly after expanding my pallet away from just chicken and pasta. So even if presented that opportunity before I probably would have […]

Barbecue Turkey Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Barbecue Turkey Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Stuffed sweet potatoes are one of my favorite meals. I can make almost anything and it’s infinitely more delicious if I stuff it into a sweet potato. I’m sure there are exceptions to this. Like I’ve never tried to stuff stir fry into a sweet […]
