I've been seeing these Prosecco Popsicles all over the internet recently and immediately was drawn to the idea of a ... Continue Reading

Cinco de Mayo Cocktails – Healthy Recipes & Tips

Cinco de Mayo for me typically means 3 things: guacamole, margaritas and turning another year older. Yep, my birthday is on Cinco de Mayo. As far as birthdays go, it's a fabulous day to fall on.  There is always something to do, margaritas are the house "special" everywhere you go and it's perfectly acceptable to eat your body weight in tacos. What else could you ask for on your birthday? While my husband's Light & Fresh Margarita recipe will always be my favorite, ... Continue Reading

It was featured in this fantastic Healthy Grilling article, featuring some delicious recipes and healthy grilling tips from fellow food bloggers.   Along with focusing meals more on vegetables and starting the Meatless Monday movement at our house, I've been trying to add more fruit to our actual meals. We eat fruit (the kids especiall... Continue Reading

Pineapple Core – Healthy & Resourceful

Did you know that the core of a pineapple is full of healthy nutrients? Did you also know that the EPA estimates that Americans throw away $1,600 worth of food each year? An easy way to reduce food waste is to figure out how you can use part of a food you would normally toss out. For example, the pineapple core. Pineapple - Healthy Fruit & Core At just 82 calories per 1 cup, this fruit is packed with beneficial nutrients such as Vitamin C, Manganese, Dietary Fiber and ... Continue Reading

Spring Vegetable Salad Recipe

This fresh and crisp Spring Vegetable Salad recipe is packed with healthy, nutritious seasonal spring produce. Perfect for Meatless Mondays or lighter meals.  Spring is in the air! A few weeks ago, the weather was nice enough to have dinner outside in the backyard.  We invited our neighbors over and had a spontaneous bbq. They supplied the most delicious tri-tip and we were in charge of the side dishes. Since the weather was so lovely, I didn't want to prepare anything too heavy. ... Continue Reading

Salty Dog – Grapefruit Cocktail Recipe

This grapefruit cocktail recipe is fresh and simple, making it my new go to drink. I've always wanted to be the kind of adult that has a "go to" cocktail. The kind of drink you can order wherever you are without feeling like a kid that just turned 21 and is trying all the cocktails. In my mind I envision a scenario where I'm running late to meet my hubby for dinner and when I arrive (looking fabulous of course because this is a dream), he's at the bar and says "I ordered you a drink" and ...

Spring Asparagus Recipe Ideas

Sharing a few of my favorite asparagus recipe ideas for spring, along with nutrition knowledge for this seasonal veggie. I can always tell when Spring is approaching (hard to tell sometimes in California) because the stores start selling daffodils (one of my favorite flowers) and asparagus is back in season! I haven't always been a huge fan of asparagus. As a kid I think it was one of those vegetables I detested. Possibly because it was usually just steamed until it was a limp, greenish ...

Spicy Tuna Wrap – Healthy Lunch Idea

This spicy tuna wrap recipe combines a tuna fish sandwich with a spicy tuna sushi roll. A great healthy lunch idea that can be taken on the go. Tuna fish sandwiches were a favorite of mine growing up. My mom's tuna salad preparation will always be one of my favorites, but it definitely isn't healthy. It involves canned tuna, lots of mayo, celery, onion and hard boiled egg. Piled high on some white bread and you have one of my favorite comfort foods. As I have become an adult (and a ...

Chicken Soba Noodle Broth Bowl – Healthy at Home

This delicious Chicken Soba Noodle Broth Bowl recipe is based on a popular restaurant's dish, but can easily be made at home for a much more budget friendly, healthy meal. There is nothing I love more than settling into a cozy booth at lunch with a fancy sandwich, gourmet salad, or gigantic bowl soup with a warm, crusty baguette on the side. So it would come as no surprise that I absolute love Panera. I think their food is fresh, delicious, and filling. Not to mention that I am a sucker for ... Continue Reading
