Feta Spinach & Pine Nut Stuffed Pork Tenderloin

Posted on October 15, 2015

Pork tenderloin, low in fat goodness and my preferred substitute to boring boneless, skinless chicken breast.  This is what I consider a weekend dish because it takes longer than 30 minutes, and I wouldn’t have it often. It is a healthier version of beef roast and something to treat yourself with. My husband refers to […]

Roasted Tomato & Onion Soup w/ Walnut Basil Pesto

Posted on October 9, 2015

I love making tomato soup; it’s easy, and its light. I like to make a batch and enjoy it for lunch for days. I pair it with toasted rye bread and salad. It’s the kind of soup that makes me feel like I’m doing something good for myself. You know that feeling when you pick […]

White Bean and Barley Vegetable Soup

Posted on October 7, 2015

Fall is here which I’ve accepted, I’m fine, it’s fine.  I’m all for scarves and soups anyways.  What I love about soup is, you can throw everything from your fridge into a pot and all of a sudden it’s the best tasting soup that you’ve ever had. What sucks is knowing you never recreate the […]

Hearty Turkey Bolognese on Pasta

Posted on October 5, 2015

Out of all the Italians out there… I married the one that doesn’t like pasta, go figure. I love pasta, meat and cheese, and together it’s love like a sunny Sunday afternoon with no plans or errands to do.  It is also is high in saturated fat, cholesterol and sodium. There are a lot better pasta […]

Meal Prep Mason Jar Salads – Lemon Chicken with Shallot Vinaigrette

Posted on September 21, 2015

One of the major changes we did to our diets were preparing these mason jar salads for our lunches. In my husband’s case, he started to eat lunch. Before he would skip that meal altogether. How he managed.. I don’t know… but when he started to eat lunch, he started to lose weight. There’s a common misconception that eating less will make you lose weight.

Hearty Turkey and Bean Chili

Posted on September 14, 2015

Hey baBe (I don’t know why people keep misspelling that) wanna come over for some Netflix and Chili? What’s better than throwing everything in a pot and letting it cook all day while you binge watch episodes on Netflix? Nothing, nothing at all. The heart-healthy changes I made were simple, duh no-brainers. I swapped beef for turkey, you really can’t tell the difference and if you do, you’re a lying.

Tamari Mustard Glazed Salmon w/ Braised Kale & Edamame Salad

Posted on September 10, 2015

Looking for salmon recipes usually ends up with me hitting my head on the desk.. repeatedly. I get why people don’t like salmon… I get it… but this is THE recipe that converted my husband to a salmon hugger. On top of that, there are a lot of soy glazed recipes out there but I’m all for tamari. Less salty (so less sodium), deeper flavours and can come gluten-free.
