I love an easy meal prep lunch recipe on a busy week. Especially when it’s a mason jar salad! These simple to throw together, but super flavorful meal prep jars have become a staple for our weekly meal prep, at least a couple times a month. The simple cucumber dill salad, tangy feta and salty-briny […]

Meal Prep Recipe: Greek Quinoa Meal Prep Jars

I love a good muffin- they’re the perfect little sweet, but sorta-healthy snack or quick one-handed breakfast (we like to serve them with a little something on the side, like eggs or a smoothie- but sometimes, you’ve gotta do what you’ve gotta do, mama!). I also love finding nutrient dense alternatives to regular old’ white […]

Have you ever tried Trader Joe’s Chili Lime Chicken burgers? They’re actually one of the first foods I tried at Trader Joe’s, and as an easy freezer option- I’ve loved having them on hand ever since. They’re made of simple ingredients and they’re totally delicious. My only qualm? They’re kind of puny. And even with […]

I’m a sucker for fried food. It’s true- give me a good crunchy onion ring or a nice hot sweet potato fry, and DEFINITELY a piece of fried chicken… I am a happy girl. And I enjoy all of those things to their fullness when I order them out. But I’m not one for frying […]

Crunchy Southwest Chicken Salad

Spring is in full swing, which means it is salad season! But hear me– I am NO garden-salad-with-italian-dressing kinda girl (unless it’s that salad from Olive Garden. I haven’t been there for years, but why is it so good? Don’t tell me, I don’t want to know.) I like a salad that is hearty, and […]

I’ve talked about the balance bowl before- it’s a concept I introduced in Healthy Mama Meal Prep and it’s my simple formula for creating a balanced, nutrient-dense meal out of simple ingredients you have on hand. Buddah bowls aren’t new- but the balance bowl concept plays off of the original concept with a balance of […]

One of my favorite food prep items is muffins! They’re perfect as part of a quick breakfast, a mid-morning snack with some coffee or as an afternoon pick me up between lunch and dinner. I created these for the sample meal plan with my Healthy Mama Meal Planner and I can’t get over how simple […]

I have friends ask me ALL the time how I got Sage to be such a ‘good eater’. There is no secret- we just feed her real food, all the time! Of COURSE she has treats, just like we do- we’re human (tonight she’s having a quesadilla from Chipotle and there probably won’t be a […]

 Chicken parmesan was one of my FAVORITE meals as a kid. When I was young, my dad worked at a family-owned Italian restaurant in town. Think homemade pasta, the most flavorful ruby-red marinara and the best fried chicken around- smothered in sauce and cheese, of course. I can smell the way that restaurant smelled when you […]
