Spicy Pineapple Chicken with Mango Avocado Salsa Sometimes having chicken for dinner just sounds so dull, so liven it up a bit with sweet and spicy fruit salsa!
Sweet and Spicy Mango Avocado Salsa This fresh salsa is juicy, sweet, and packing a kick! The best part is that it doesn’t even require a food processor to make!
Green Machine Juice Between traveling last week, going out to eat with family and friends, and of course Valentine’s Day yesterday, I’ve been indulging quite a bit! To get back on track though, I’ll be doing a lot of meal replacements with juices and smoothies. For anyone new to juicing, the thought of juicing vegetables and even the color of the juice can send you running the other way! I used to… Keep Reading
Yep.. you read that right.. chocolate covered bacon. Do I really need to write out an enticing intro to get you to read more? I think not! But… I will. Men are so tough to buy gifts for on Valentine’s Day , but can you really go wrong with bacon?!? NOPE! Present your man with a Ron Swanson-worthy plate of thick cut bacon, dipped in dark chocolate!
Strawberry Banana Mango Smoothie I love getting the Naked Juice Smoothie drinks, but they add up quickly. I wanted to recreate the strawberry banana flavor, but give it my own spin by adding mango! I had a glass when I made it and then saved the rest for breakfast the next day! Much cheaper and far more delicious!
Oven Roasted Cinnamon and Brown Sugar Acorn Squash I have no idea why, but I used to be squeamish about squash! I gave it another shot and I love it! It makes an amazing side or main dish and has the consistency of mashed potatoes. This particular recipe is a favorite of mine because it reminds me of fall. We’re still about 8 months away from that time, but I’m… Keep Reading
Kale and Green Apple Salad with Zesty Strawberry Vinaigrette I used to loathe salads..or anything healthy for that matter, but we acquired a juicer several months ago and I love it! We’ve only used it for juicing so far, but I decided I wanted to get more use out of it. I found a simple recipe for using strawberry juice, a bit of the pulp, and balsamic vinegar to make a vinaigrette… Keep Reading

The odds of that happening right now are probably slim to none, so bring the tropical vibe to you! This delicious smoothie will give you a great boost of energy and snap you out of the winter blues… Keep Reading
Coconut Shrimp with Spicy Mango Sauce Spice up winter a bit with these delectable coconut shrimp! The mango sauce has a subtle spice and sweetness that pairs perfectly with the shrimp!
Rosemary and Garlic Bacon Wrapped Chicken Drumsticks I made these on Thanksgiving and I’ve received multiple demanding requests since to put the recipe up already! So here you are.. delicious, melt in your mouth, bacon wrapped drumsticks! The bacon practically fuses to the chicken, so when you take a bite the bacon stays on the drumstick instead of unraveling. I apologize to my vegetarian followers, but this post is for the bacon… Keep Reading
Healthy Greek Omelet I used to be awful at making omelets so I finally gave up.. Gave up in the sense that if they didn’t turn out looking great, I would just chop up the egg and have scrambled eggs with vegetables! Haha it seems once you stop caring so much, they turn out wonderful! Greek omelets are by far my favorite to make now. They’re packed with good veggies and protein… Keep Reading
Since I have several friends that are vegetarians, I decided that at least once a month I’ll be featuring a veggie-friendly dish! I made this roast acorn squash for a friend on Thanksgiving and she really enjoyed it! I fine-tuned it a bit more and even I, the steak and bacon loving carnivore that I am, found it delicious! So whether you’re a die-hard vegetarian or just looking to eat… Keep Reading
