6 Components You Need For Making The Most Delicious & Filling Salad

Ok, so this may seem like a really easy thing to do, but in the past, I’ve made salads that leave me hungry like an hour later.  Not cool!  Also, for some reason I like salads that I can get out at restaurants way more than when I make it at home.  Why is that?  Or is that just me? So if this sounds like you at all, then this post is for you.  When I sat down and thought about it, I realized that every salad should contain specific ingredients.  They not only make it taste great, but it’ll […]

Stuffed Peppers for a Busy Weeknight

Over in my Natural Postpartum Support Facebook Group, I had asked the wonderful mamas what were some things that would be useful as far as eating healthy in the kitchen.  It’s one thing to know what healthy is, it’s another to find recipes that fit the bill.  A lot of people think that when you eat healthy, it means everything has to be made from scratch.  And although I definitely advocate for meals made from scratch, it isn’t as hard as people make it out to be.  I have an arsenal of quick recipes in my recipe binder that I […]

Are You Getting Enough Fiber + Lentil Sweet Potato Spinach Stew Recipe

I challenge you to figure out how much fiber you intake on a regular day.  Most of us probably only get 8-10 g. a day.  The kicker is, that you’re missing out on almost 20 more grams that you should be getting on a regular basis.  The recommended daily amount of fiber that is 30-50g.   I want you to look at your own health and see if you have any of these issue: High LDL (bad) cholesterol, raised blood sugar, excess body weight. If you’re not getting enough fiber, should you freak out.  No, you can turn things around, […]

Black Bean Burgers

  If you’re looking at this recipe thinking this is going to be a great replacement for burgers, well it isn’t.  I guess you could call me a cheeseburger connoisseur.  That’s a favorite cheat meal of mine and hubby’s and we always make it a game to search for the best cheeseburger.   The verdict is still out on the best one.  Gosh, now I’m craving cheeseburger when I’m supposed to be writing about black bean burgers.  I digress… With ALL that said, this burger is just plain great.  No, it won’t taste like a burger, but it’s still a […]
