Stir Fry Veggies with Brown Rice

March 16, 2016

I’ve always had a love-hate relationship with rice growing up.  It was a staple in our house and still to this day we eat it at least once a week. Like most people in the world rice was always paired with beans in addition to legumes, veggies and/or meat in our house. It wasn’t until I began transitioning to Continue Reading…

Avocado Toast 5 Ways

March 10, 2016

Growing up I remember my mother buying avocados to go along with our breakfast, lunch or dinner for the week. I wasn’t really a fan of avocados but I wasn’t totally against it.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but nobody has time to make a full breakfast Monday through Friday. If you are one of those people that can, you are definitely a privileged few.

Clean Eating Granola

January 9, 2016

The problem with today is that most of our food is heavily processed. We are taught to be more concerned about the calorie amount rather than the ingredients that are in an actual product. The problem with that is that most ingredients in our food today contains chemicals and preservatives. Most products wont say that they contain GMOs, but they will list chemicals and preservative that are likely produced with GMO foods. Once I figured that Continue Reading…

Berry Beet Oat Smoothie

January 4, 2016

Its the start of a new year, so most of us probably have a few resolutions that we plan to work on throughout the year. Whether its saving more money, eating healthier or even traveling more. Resolutions are often a good thing, but most of us tend to fall off in a couple days or even weeks. I personally didn’t make any resolutions this year because, I feel that my “resolutions” are lifelong and not yearly. I want to live a long healthy life, so I make the decision to make healthier choices everyday to get closer to that goal. Don’t get me wrong,  on occasion I do chose pizza over a smoothie or even fries over kale. I try at least 75% Continue Reading…
