Vegetarian Alfredo Bowls

Vegetarian Alfredo Bowls

I started adding more vegetarian meals into my diet recently, which is when this vegetable Alfredo bowl happened. I made this change for a few reasons but in order of priority they are as follows: It’s cheaper. IF I buy meat it’s usually not great quality because I […]

Chicken and Sausage Pumpkin Casserole

Chicken and Sausage Pumpkin Casserole

The first time I made this it was just chicken and sausage casserole. Justin, like he always does, gave me some feedback on it. He absolutely loved the dish – a comment I always believe coming from his honest mouth – but suggested it would […]

Dairy Free Chicken Alfredo Casserole

Dairy Free Chicken Alfredo Casserole

This dairy free alfredo casserole was a winner! I used to make low-fat alfredo sauces out of skim milk and low-fat cheese and they just never turned out right. I had made a decent one with cauliflower and cheese but my new challenge this time was […]

Mediterranean Meal Prep Bowls

Mediterranean Meal Prep Bowls

I was craving Greek food one day. It happens. I also wanted to give a dairy-free tzatziki sauce a try so I made one with coconut milk for these Mediterranean meal prep bowls. This bowl contains quinoa and ground turkey that I cooked with some Mediterranean […]

Chicken Mole with Baked Plantains

Chicken Mole with Baked Plantains

I made this mole sauce ages ago and kept the rest in the freezer. I got about 16 servings out of it and I used half the recipe. The only thing I changed is I left out raisins because at the time I wasn’t big on all […]

Taco Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Taco Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

I definitely love stuffing sweet potatoes with things. Just type “sweet potato” into the search bar and you’ll find at least 5 stuffed sweet potato recipes. And many more that just incorporate this delicious tuber in some other way. Sweet potatoes are easily in my […]

Sweet Potato Sausage “Hot Dogs”

Sweet Potato Sausage “Hot Dogs”

I saw this idea on the Lifetime Weightloss Blog. They post some great articles and recipes on it so I’m on there pretty often! I saw the photo of this and thought it was “adorable” to make something that simply looked like a hot dog out […]

Burgers with Raspberry Chipotle Ketchup

Burgers with Raspberry Chipotle Ketchup

These were my first BEEF burgers in a loooooong time. I realized I needed more B-Vitamins and Iron for my energy levels so I started incorporating red meat again. Last week it was steak and veggies. The week before I made these burgers because 93% ground beef […]

Creole Shrimp with Red Beans and Rice

Creole Shrimp with Red Beans and Rice

This Creole Shrimp is now one of my favorite meals. It’s probably only the second or third time I’ve made a similar dish. It’s easy (aside from peeling shrimp). I love shrimp but can only afford the frozen stuff on sale. It’s a shame. Luckily when I […]

Baked Chicken & Strawberry Jalapeno Salsa

Baked Chicken & Strawberry Jalapeno Salsa

I just ate this moments before writing this and I just have to brag about it for a minute. I marinated this chicken at about 4:30 this morning (the day that I’m writing this)…I woke up, unable to sleep as usual and felt like getting […]
