Wish I had thought of this earlier! #Healthy Dinners: Sweet potato and Butternut squash shepherds pie. Delicious comfort food, packed with nutrition.

Sweet Potato and Butternut Squash Shepherds Pie

In England, Shepherds Pie is a staple dish for most families. I know my family has it on a regular basis. The English (maybe even the British) have become very defensive when it comes to the name of this dish. Shepherds pie contains minced lamb, with a mashed potato topping. Absolutely not to be confused with Cottage…

Halloween Stuffed Pepper-kins

As I now consider myself a blogger, I wanted to try to keep up with all the other foodies, and start making themed foods. Most make mummy cookies, or candy corn blondies, but as much as I would love to eat those, they are not exactly matching up with my healthy eating blog. However, making…

Butternut Squash Lasagna

Hearty Oatmeal and Greek Yogurt Pancakes

Last Sunday I ran my longest run ever; 20.2 miles….I add the .2 because that means I was only 6 miles short of the full marathon distance I will race next month. On the drive back from my run, all I could think about was food. As you can imagine I was STARVING, and the no…

No Bake Peanut Butter Banana Cookies

,
As it is less than two months until my debut marathon, I am trying my best to eat the correct, nutritious foods to supplement my training, while satisfying my sweet tooth enough so I do not overeat other foods trying to fill the void (in the past I ended up putting on weight when I gave up…

Hearty Chicken Tortilla Soup

, , ,
It is not quite cold enough for winter soups, but I wanted to bring the crockpot out of hiding, and a soup is always a safe bet. I always try to make sure my soups are hearty and filling, as there is nothing worse than a canned soup that is literally broth with some soggy…

Thai Chopped Chicken Salad

, , ,
I intended to call this a Cobb salad, but unfortunately, when I asked my friend Mr. Wikipedia what ingredients were in a Cobb salad, he responded; “A good way to remember the components is to use the acronym EAT COBB: Egg, Avocado, Tomato, Chicken, Onion, Bacon, Blue cheese”. Although this is a handy way to remember the…

Sesame Stir Fry Shrimp

As my cooking skills improve and my confidence grows in the kitchen, I am becoming more adventurous with the meals I am creating. This week, I decided to tackle one of the foods I have always wanted to try; shrimp.   I considered making a creamy shrimp-y pasta at first, but decided I would make use…

Spiced Haitian Chicken and Rice

While visiting friends this summer, I was cooked a meal that sounded rather strange. However, I wanted to be open minded, and good job too as it was really good, in a very unique way! The recipe came from Haiti, and contained an ingredient I had always wanted to try; plantains. I was not sure what…

Southwestern Zuccini Boats

Over the past few months, I have been thinking a lot about where I want to take this blog. It has continued to develop over the last year, and I have come to a conclusion. It is time to move away from sweet recipes. As I have mentioned before, I believe in balance, so I…
