Roasted Chickpea Salad

This is a new FAVORITE!! I made this last week when I was invited to a Middle Eastern Feast. I had no idea what to bring, like not a clue. So I reviewed a few recipes and this is the resulting recipe. It is so delicious and the warm flavors would pair so good with […]

Veggie Tots

We have our produce box delivered every Thursday to the gym. It’s like Christmas to open it up and see all the beautiful fruits and veggies and herbs! We were looking to mix it up a bit and the boys are definitely at an age where hand-held foods are just so realistic. A client shared […]

Shrimp Bisque

I can think of a million reasons to eat Shrimp Bisque, but I’ll just stop at “…because it’s soooooooo yummy, Mommy!” 2 tablespoons (1/2 stick) Organic butter, divided 1 1/2 pound medium shrimp (about 45), peeled, deveined, shells reserved 2 bay leaves 2 carrots, peeled, chopped 1 Shallot, chopped 3/4 cup white cooking wine 1/4 […]

Oat Balls (aka Cookie Balls)

These Oat Balls are a great snack or quick breakfast that are popular in my house. We don’t eat a ton of grains but we all seem to handle oats well and these “Cookie Balls” (as Colt calls them) are incredibly satisfying. Ingredients: 1.5 C Old Fashioned Oats 1/2 C Vanilla Whey Protein (2 scoops) […]

Double Duty Stir Fry

This quick weeknight meal lends itself well to prepping ahead. Poach the chicken on the weekend and store in a container for up to 4 days OR freeze the chicken in a bag, the veggies in a bag, and the sauce in a bag. Put all three bags into one big bag and your set […]

Creamy Herbed Pork Chops (or chicken or pork tenderloin)

This recipe can be done in the crockpot or you could do it in a cast iron skillet with a lid (place it in the oven for just 4 hours at 280*). It’s just so delicious! Ingredients: 4 Pork Chops or Chicken breasts/Thighs or a Pork Tenderloin 1 Tbsp Organic butter, ghee, or avocado oil […]

Sweet Potato Souffle

This Sweet Potato Souffle recipe is one I made up out of necessity. I had baked no less than ONE MILLION Sweet Potatoes for a cookout. Not one was eaten… hahahaha! I guess Potato Salad, Corn Salad, and Potato Chips seemed more interesting to the masses 🙂 But, what is one to do with a […]

Lemon Rosemary Chicken Soup

This soup is soooooo good… all year long. It’s not heavy and it packs a powerful flavor punch.   Our friend Kay Kasser (from Alive Culinary Coaching) gave us this wonderful recipe when she did a talk at Haka on meal prep. This one is a great to double! Make one fresh for tonight and […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

Everyone likes a satisfying and sweet treat sometimes. I try to skew mine to be things that allow me to say YES when my kids ask, too. These peanut butter cups have a ton of good stuff going on. It’s basically the recipe put out by Mark Hyman with just a tiny tweak. I use […]
