Eat Your Veggies Buddha Bowl!

We escaped Irma!!!  This past week has not been one of my favorites at all.  Since living in South Florida, it was quite possibly my most stressful week to date.  After two days of trying to decide what to do in regards to this hurricane, I packed us up in a matter of minutes, threw as much stuff into the car that would fit and we left…..

Mediterranean Rice Bowl

I have become a lover of all foods served in a bowl.  Rice Bowls…Buddha Bowls…etc.  WHY?  I really haven’t a clue?  I just love it.  It makes me happy.  So, it’s what I’m doing for the moment.  Continue reading “Mediterranean Rice Bowl”

Moroccan Chickpea and Quinoa Salad

S-T-R-E-S-S….. A six letter word that makes me do several things.  1.) Emotionally eat.      2.) Over exercise (because I emotionally eat).  3.) WORRY WORRY WORRY.  *BIG sigh*  When I’m stressed I have absolutely no desire to be creative in any aspect of life, especially cooking…I over analyze everything to the point of making myself nuts.  I finally reached my break of insanity yesterday mainly because I’m sick and tired of eating the same things over and over and over.  So, I made myself get in the kitchen yesterday and I’ve created a new salad recipe that is super healthy, full flavorful (because who wants to eat something with NO flavor?), and it actually keeps you full for a long time!  Continue reading “Moroccan Chickpea and Quinoa Salad”

Mushroom Ragu

Since I’ve been reducing my meat in-take I’ve been allowing myself a little more carbs as of late.  You have to eat something that keeps your stomach full for longer than 30 minutes when you’re only eating fruits and vegetables…right?!  I needed a little comfort food last night, but wanted it to be ‘healthy’.  Nothing that weighs you down and makes you hate life after you eat! 🙂 Continue reading “Mushroom Ragu”

Faux Fried Rice

Faux Fried Rice is my new favorite invention for my homemade Chinese food cravings.  It makes me feel just a bit healthier when I use quinoa.  And the sesame oil gives it that perfect Chinese restaurant fake out that makes you think, “This doesn’t taste homemade!” Continue reading “Faux Fried Rice”

teriyaki turkey bowl4

I’m a BIG FAN of one-pot meals!  I’m an even bigger fan of getting supper on the table in less than 30 minutes!  This meal is just that.  One-pot, super simple, and completely ready to eat in under 30 minutes.  Get your veggies chopped up and ready to go first thing and it makes this an even quicker meal to fix.
