Pulled Pork and Roasted Sweet Potato Pizza

, ,
Last week I was in heaven Bed Bath and Beyond, daydreaming about all the kitchen supplies I will someday be able to put on my registry, while shopping for a friends wedding present.  It brings butterflies to my stomach, thinking about the day I can go around and click whatever I want…..yes, I have heard…

Mango and Sweet Potato Tacos

Last week, as Spring finally appeared to be here to stay, I decided I would make a dish that’s vibrancy (I think that is a word?!) would sum up the feelings of relief amongst most of us for the recognition that we survived the winter. I came up with this wonderfully bright meatless way of…

Salmon, Spinach, and Broccoli Risotto

, ,
Okay, I am going to share a secret with you. One of my favorite meals of all time. Actually, I am surprised I have not posted this before, but it is my go to dish when I want to make something I know will be good. We all know (well, foodies know), that risotto is…

Sweet Potato Stir Fry

,
When my mum asked me what I wanted for Christmas, I think she thought I was joking when the first thing I said was a julienne peeler *what has my daughter become?!*. It was one of my favorite presents…..until I came across Ali’s blog, and discovered the wondrous spiralizer!!! My julienne peeler seemed so weak…

Cauliflower Crust Veggie Pizza

, ,
I am learning more and more that I am a bit of a sheep. I always thought I was independent; someone who doesn’t gave to peer pressure, does what she wants, but I keep hearing about how gluten free is the biggest “fad” of the moment. As today marks the end of my gluten free…

Slow Cooker Chilli

,
Depending on where you are in the country, you may be like us Philadelphians, under a deep (13 inches!) of snow with temperatures hovering around 2F (-15F with winchill!!!). On days like this, the perfect food to warm you up is a Chilli to bring some heat back into your body, and get that metabolism…

Butternut Squash and Goats Cheese Pizza

,
For the last six months, I have been trying to eat real. That means trying to make as much from scratch as I possibly can, and trying to remove processed foods from my diet. Making your own pizza, for example, has various commitment levels to how homemade you want to go. You can buy it from…
These turkey and sweet potato pita pockets are the perfect healthy dinner filled with lots of superfoods. I need more of these healthy meals!

Turkey and Sweet Potato Pita Pockets

, ,
Sometimes when in recipe development stage, I think about meals I have enjoyed in my favorite restaurants, and how I could either replicate, or make a healthier version of them. This is how the idea for these pita pockets started out. I thought of them as a different adaptation….maybe even more nutritious version of the…

Six Super Food Salad

, ,
The last few weeks have been a whirlwind of ups and downs; so many wonderful moments as I am surrounded with love, and some major challenges to keep my feet on the ground. I have had my parents here this week, and we have been making the most of their time by enjoying the best…
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…
#Healthy Dinner.: #Halloween Stuffed Pepper -kins. Filled with butternut squash risotto. Fun to make, and fun to eat! #FuelYourFuture

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…
Healthy Dinners: Butternut squash lasagne. Perfect fall meal; full of nutrition and taste. Yummy!

Butternut Squash Lasagna

,
I love fall. It is the time of year you truly appreciate the beauty of nature; the spectrum of colors in contrast with the brilliant blue sky, as the leaves depart their trees to form a mesmerizing bundle of color on the ground. It is the time of year running is the most enjoyable; the…

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…

Moroccan Chicken Couscous

, ,
As my kitchen skills improve, and more of my recipes are turning out to be a great success, my confidence to try new cushiness is growing. I spent a little time last week researching Moroccan flavorings, and came up with this Moroccan couscous. This is an extremely flavorful dish, your tastebuds are treated to a…

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…

Homemade Veggie Pizza with a Honey Wheat Crust

My family loves going out to eat at a pub near our house in St Albans called the Wicked Lady. They have a wonderful menu that features many appealing main meals to suit every preference. Everything is made to a very high standard so you have every confidence that whatever you get, it will be good. However, no…

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…

Smoked Salmon Summer Salad with Lemon Dill Dressing

, , ,
I try to introduce new healthy meals to my family in the hope that they will make them again. After three days of eating out, I decided that a salad was a good bet, and I adapted this Salmon Vegetable Salad with Miso Dressing recipe to suit my family’s preferences and make it more accessible (I…

Crunchy Thai Quinoa Vegetable Salad

, ,
I have known for a long time that Americans LOVE their peanut butter, but this week it became apparent to me just how much I love it. As I thought about what healthy meal I could make, all that I could think about was the recipe I had found for Crunchy Thai Quinoa with Ginger…
