Arugula Pecan Salad with Simple Balsamic Dressing

If you have never tried arugula you must! It’s delicate lettuce leaf with a slightly bitter, slightly sweet taste. That’s the best way to describe it. At least for me. It’s a great base for any salad. This salad was really easy to throw together since I grabbed leftover veggies from the fridge and tossed them on top of the packaged arugula. Make one up soon along with the simple, tasty dressing.

Southern Honey Raspberry Iced Tea

When I lived in Atlanta many years ago, I was invited to a friends house for lunch. She served the most refreshing iced tea I had ever had. It was sweet but not too sweet and I knew it didn’t just taste like sugar sweetened. Once she told me what was in the tea, I tasted the honey and asked her for the recipe. Now, I make this regularly and if raspberries are not in season, I use frozen ones. Which, by the way, work even better. You will need less ice. This recipe is so easy to prepare and so refreshingly delightful. Enjoy anytime of year, especially on a warm day. Adjust the honey to your sweet liking. There are many types of honey out there that will give the tea a nice flavor, I highlighted the one I used for this recipe.

Giant Grab & Go Paleo Breakfast Cookies

You know those days when rushing and there’s really no time for sitting down to breakfast but, you still want something that’s nourishing and  delicious. This cookie is it. It’s not only Paleo, it’s vegan too. The recipe is easy to prepare. What I do is one night a week or on the weekend, I bake a batch. Wrap them individually in wax paper or freezer paper then freeze in a Ziploc bag. In the morning, I just grab one and go. By the time I get to the car, it’s softened up and ready for my coffee. However, they do taste really good frozen too. If you have a few seconds, microwave them for yeah, just a few seconds for a warm cookie. These are not your typical oatmeal cookie. They’re Paleo, so no grains or refined sugar in this cookie, all healthy goodness. Bake a batch soon, you and your loved ones will be so happy you did.

Amazing Paleo “Nutella”

I always joke and say Nutella should be a food group. That’s how much I love it. There have been many times I’ve been caught with a spoon in the jar. What’s not to love? Hazelnuts and chocolate and lots of sugar. Well, the first two ingredients are fine but, the sugar we could do without. If you have been on our blog before, we do have really delicious homemade Nutella recipe that’s really low fat and has much less sugar than the original. Check it out here… Homemade Nutella recipe.

Now, on to this recipe. For some of us that want a really clean recipe with no added sugar or dairy. This one is for you. Tastes so decadent yet, it’s made with all healthy ingredients you won’t believe your taste buds.  Try this simple recipe today.

No Cook Overnight Oats and Greek Yogurt Parfait with Berries

This is my new go-to breakfast lately. My kids and husband really enjoy it as well. I prepare a few at night, then in the morning we all can grab one and take with us or sit and relax while enjoying this hearty yet light breakfast. It’s got all you need for a strong, healthy start to your day. The yogurt gives a great boost of protein while the oats and fruits give you healthy carbs and energy. Add in things you know your family will like.  Sometimes I add granola in the morning so it stays crunchy. Also, dried fruit is tasty and gives a nice chew. We even enjoy this for lunch some days when in a rush or for a healthy, nutritious snack. See and taste for yourself.

Tasty & Juicy All White Meat Turkey Burgers

Burgers are my sons favorite meal. He can eat them for breakfast that’s how much he likes them. He has as a matter of fact. whenever there is a leftover of any burger or meatloaf in the house from the night before, that’s what he wants for breakfast the next day. Anyway, that’s what got me to try to make a great turkey burger. The one thing that I thought might be a problem was going to be using all white meat turkey. You are probably thinking why not use the mixed turkey meat. Well, the reason I didn’t want to use that is because the fat content is just way up there. I would rather use the all white meat turkey and add a healthy fat instead. So, that’s what I did along with other really good ingredients for the most delicious and juicy burger. White meat turkey is very bland so it needs lots of seasonings. It does not have to be spicy just tasty.  A must to make at home for your family, my whole family loved these and my son gave me the thumbs up and said it was fantastic! Thanks Josh!

Chocolate Protein Nice Cream

Have you heard of “Nice Cream” ? If not, I will tell you what this wonderful treat is. Simply, it’s frozen fruit such as bananas with any add-Ins you like. Or, just the fruit itself. We love Banana Nice Cream. If you have been on this blog before, we have two recipes made with frozen bananas. One is made with peanut butter, yum! This one is made with protein powder for an added kick of healthy protein. It’s so easy to make and everyone will think they are eating yummy, creamy ice-cream.

Moist & Delicious All White Meat Chicken Meatloaf

Growing up my mom made meatloaf once a week. She always used ground beef. Delicious to say the least. Nowadays there are other choices such as turkey and chicken and even pork mixed with the ground beef. On the blog there’s a few great meatloaf recipes that you should check out as well as this new recipe. This was the first time I used all white meat chicken for a meatloaf. My family and I were very happy and actually surprised how moist and tasty this came out. Give this simple recipe a try and taste for yourself. I think you will really enjoy it they way we did.

Simply Seasoned Oven Roasted Chicken Breasts

I really like this simple basic chicken recipe. Sometimes all you are in the mood for is just that. A simple home cooked meal that’s easy to throw together and hits the spot. This is perfect for two adults alone or two adults and a child. My husband son and I had this last night for dinner. Served over brown rice and a veggie on the side. Nothing fancy, just delicious and perfect for a busy weeknight meal.
