Recipes

Chicken and Vegetable Bake 

This recipe could not be any easier! Click HERE for instructions. I use 2T of butter and THIS blend of spices instead. Feel free to try different vegetables too! I have tried yellow squash and it was scrumptious! Other ideas are carrots, asparagus, or broccoli.

Fruity Green Salad

HERE ya go!  I am just making the salad and not the dressing. If you do make the dressing tell me how it is!

Turkey Wrap

You can really make this any way you please, but here is what I do.

Take a whole wheat tortilla and spread a thin layer of hummus (salsa would be a delicious alternative) add spinach and lettuce leaves, feta cheese, sliced turkey, cucumber, grapes (or dried cranberries) and avocado. Sprinkle on some pepper or chopped cilantro and enjoy!

Spinach Chicken Mushroom Quinoa

Another easy quinoa dish, click HERE. Add chicken for extra protein and filling-power!

Breakfast

Its omelette time! Grab your eggs and plenty of veggies and whip up something yummy. Pair with bacon and a piece of fruit!
