Healthy Baked Donuts with Dark Chocolate Glaze (Grain Free)

The newest addition to our family is one month old today, and after lots of resting and cuddling these past four weeks, I'm officially in full on "lose the baby weight" mode. I definitely let myself indulge in the occasional Saturday morning donut date with my two year old while pregnant, but if I want... Continue Reading →

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies (Flourless, Grain Free)

I'm always looking for ways to make my favorite baked goods grain free and flourless whenever I can. My body feels better when I eat less carbs, but that doesn't mean I don't still want the "bad" stuff. When it comes to muffins and breads and cakes, I usually need to use almond or coconut...

Garlic Butter Salmon and Roasted Veggies (Single Sheet Pan Dinner)

I used to avoid buying and cooking fish. I know how good it is for me, and I love the taste of it, but I just could never figure out how to cook it. It seemed like every time I put it in a skillet, it ended up dry and flavorless. Or one side would... Continue Reading →

Chicken and Red Lentil Coconut Soup

I normally eat salad with grilled chicken for lunch everyday during the work week, but I wanted to change it up a bit this week. Partly because it's a little cooler (and gloomier) out, and I'm in the mood for something warm and comforting. Also partly because prepping my salads every night can become a... Continue Reading →

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bars (Flourless, Grain Free, and Low Carb)

As a teacher, summer is obviously my favorite season. I don't complain about the heat because I'm so grateful to have 2 months off work every year, BUT... as soon as school starts back up, I'm ready for fall. I love the cooler weather, the plaid flannels, and yes, I'm one of those people who... Continue Reading →

Chocolate Chip Muffins (Grain Free and Low Carb)

After a particularly difficult week last week and having to miss my first three work days of the school year due to a family emergency, I needed something that would make my Monday a little bit special. Sometimes in life, when things happen that you can't control, and there is literally nothing that you can... Continue Reading →

Blueberry Streusel Muffins (Gluten Free and Lower Carb)

I don't eat muffins often, but when I do, blueberry streusel muffins are my muffin of choice. I love the freshness of blueberries paired with a sweet and crunchy topping. Unfortunately, muffins like that are basically the equivalent of eating a big slice of cake for breakfast, and that's obviously not the best of food... Continue Reading →

15 Minute Shrimp Tacos

Shrimp is one of my favorite proteins to use for an easy lunch or dinner because it cooks so quickly compared to other proteins. It's literally finished in 5-6 minutes, which is perfect, because I don't have much time to spare, especially on the weekdays. While my son napped today, I ran down to the... Continue Reading →

Tomato Basil Soup

With the school year starting in less than two weeks, I'm in full on freezer meal mode. Soups are one of my favorite things to make and freeze because you can heat them up so quickly and serve them with a deli meat sandwich or panini for a super quick weeknight dinner. When life gets...
