Chicken and Orzo Soup with Fennel

Chicken soup. How boring, right? No way, Jose!!! This one is especially interesting on account of the lemon juice and fennel. The dill takes it to a whole new, unexpected taste place. I LOOOOOVE dill, but if you’re not into it, just throw some fresh parsley in instead. The soup police will definitely not come…

Coco-Loco Mango Green Smoothie

All things green and smoothie are super on-trend in fitness. So, it was only a matter of time before I took the plunge and tried something both green and blended. I was hesitant. I was doubtful. I was wrong. This stuff is GOOD and so good for you!! Here’s what you need: 1 cup SoDelicious…

Greek Turkey Meatballs

Anyone who knows me knows that Greek food is my all-time favorite cuisine. If I could eat gyros or falafel every day of my life, I probably would. But we both know that isn’t a good idea. In any case, I love ALL things Greek food. I credit this restaurant from my hometown for my…

Tropical Fruit Salsa

Much to all of Texas’ dismay, it’s nearly summer. The days of 1,000-degree heat are right around the corner. But summer isn’t all bad. Think of the cookouts with friends! Or maybe you cook in with friends instead. Regardless of whether you head to the patio or not, this time of year begs for us…

Pickle-Brined Chicken Tenders

If you’ve got little ones padding around your house, chicken nuggets and tenders are a staple. While mine is a little too young to really get down on the McNuggets, I know he will be ready to tear them up any day now. So, I’ve prepared myself with this healthy alternative to those fried ones…

Grilled Chicken Bruschetta

It’s getting to be that time of year when tomatoes are at their ripest and basil is at its most abundant. Seriously, is there anything more summer-y than a Caprese salad?? It’s seriously one of my most favorite things. I’ve always loved tomatoes. My grandparents always had tons and tons of tomato plants on their…

Asian (insert protein of choice) Salad

Who doesn’t love a good salad? I know that a salad every now and again is just the thing that I’m looking for. With the rising temperatures, eating on the lighter side has never tasted so good, and this Asian-inspired salad is perfect. Here’s what you’ll need: Salad greens Chopped red bell pepper Chopped green…

Avocado Chocolate Pudding

I tell you what, I am ALL about some treats this week! At least this is one that you can feel good about, though. Avocados are ultra nutritious. They provide heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids, more potassium than bananas, fiber out the yin yang, along with a host of other benefits. Additionally, they’re tasty! With their…

Healthy Pizza???

Ingredients: Flatout flatbread 1 medium onion, diced 1 red and 1 green bell pepper, diced 2 cloves of garlic minced 1 pound 93%…

PB & J Overnight Oats

Food trends are a funny thing. Much like just about everything else, all things old are new again. Just look at red velvet ANYTHING. A super old-fashioned, Southern dessert is all the rage in recent years. Well, much like red velvet, sriracha, or even kale, overnight oats have taken over Pinterest. While I can’t take…
