IMG_0512

This is an awesome twist on rice and beans. I love rice and beans, they make a great super super cheap meal. As much as I love rice and beans I also really love variety, so I am always coming up with new twist on rice and beans. The curry powder in the rice really…


Peanut Butter Yogurt Dip

I have had many different variations of these dip, but most of which were far too sweet for me! Some definitely more of a dessert dip. So this is my version, it’s simple, easy, and quick, it can easily be used for breakfast, lunch or a snack, even a light dinner. I use greek yogurt,…

Root Vegetable Medley

This salad makes a quick and easy side to go with just about any meal. In the summer I think it makes a great small lunch or snack, it would be great with some added nuts and seeds too! I had half a beet and half a jicama leftover from my Rainbow Lettuce Wraps I…

Egg White Quiche

Quiche

I love quiche! I almost never make it the same, quiche is one of those dishes (like most my favorites) that I like to just pull random stuff out of my fridge and make it all go together in a dish. We made homemade eggnog a few nights ago (yum!!) and we only use the…

My 4 year old loves these little balls of goodness! They are so easy, so simple, and make a great healthy snack or breakfast and are great as part of lunch. I like to pack these, some fresh fruit, and yogurt for a picnic. I started making them when my 4 year old was just…

I love hummus! I could eat it everyday and not get tired, I don’t because there are too many other foods I love as well! Sweet potato hummus is probably my favorite, I have never had a sweet potato dish I didn’t like. Hummus is so quick and easy to throw together and out of…
