Meal Prep Recipe Roundup

October 29, 2014 0 comments

Every weekend, I meal prep at least one recipe for the work week. Meal prepping is great for people with busy schedules (ahem, all of us!) because you can simply grab and go meals and snacks when you’re on the run. It is also perfect for constantly hungry people (me!!) because there is always something healthy in the fridge for me to eat, so I don’t have to turn to junk food.

Chickpea and Chicken Sausage Minestrone Soup

Chicken and Chickpea Sausage Minestrone Soup

It’s getting to be that time of the year where all you want to do after work is cozy up with something warm. Even though the nighttime weather is only hitting the low 60’s in LA recently, I still find myself craving warmer meals. This Chickpea and Chicken Sausage Minestrone Soup came out of a desire to make a hearty soup, but pack it with a protein, so that it would […]

5 Tips to Help You Workout in the Morning

Workout

If you’ve been reading this blog for awhile, you know I prefer to workout in the morning, as opposed to after work. When I first began a full-time job after college, I tried to workout after work, but I kept skipping my workouts because I was too tired or I’d make alternate plans. I quickly realized that if I was going to get all of my workouts in, I would have […]

Thai Celery Salad

Thai Celery Salad

We eat a lot of salads in our house, but it seems like we are always reaching for the same old ingredients. Last week I was craving a large bowl of leafy greens, but unfortunately the lettuce in our fridge had gone bad. We still had a whole lot of other green “things,” so I decided to throw together this salad, using celery and cilantro as the base. Given my […]

Salad

I’m stopping in this morning to share a few pictures I snapped on my phone this weekend. Travis was away on business, so it was just Bessie and me holding down the fort. Since you all know how much Bessie likes sending text messages, she insisted on taking a few selfies to send to her daddy. Of course, I obliged. What a little camera hog she is! I had a […]

Strawberry and Avocado Salsa

In an effort to clean out my fridge this weekend, I created this INCREDIBLE strawberry and avocado salsa. Travis and I love making a mango-avocado salsa to serve on top of tilapia or halibut, but strawberries were the only fruit I had left in the fridge this time. In all honesty, the strawberries I had on hand were a little too ripe (borderline squishy), but I knew it wouldn’t matter for a salsa. […]

Apple Honey Muffins

Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, is on the horizon, so I thought it would be a good idea to bake something festive this weekend. It is customary to eat apples and honey together on Rosh Hashanah because it represents a “sweet new year.” I was definitely in the mood for something sweet yesterday morning, so I decided to bake these apple honey muffins in honor of the holiday. Sadly, […]

How to Make Steel cut Overnight Oats

Steelcut Overnight Oats

I love steel cut oats because they tend to fill me up better than regular rolled oats. The only problem is that they take at least 20 minutes to cook, which isn’t ideal on a weekday when you’re trying to get out the door in time for work. But did you know that you can actually cook steel cut oats overnight, so that they are ready for you in the morning?? […]

Recipe Organization: My Method

Recipe Organization

I subscribe to way too many food magazines. I kept receiving free or heavily discounted offers, so I just continued to sign up for one after the other. I read all of them, but in the last year my stockpile became a bit ridiculous. I began hoarding magazines on the bookshelf in our living room because I couldn’t part with them. As I read these magazines, I dog-ear pages that I […]

Healthy Whole Wheat Zucchini Bread

Zucchini Bread

There is something about the beginning of fall that makes me dream about warm freshly baked breads. Well, to be honest, I’ve been fantasizing about zucchini bread for a few weeks now, but it has been too hot to even think about turning on my oven. On Monday morning I saw I had three lonely zucchinis in the fridge just begging me to use them, so I finally sucked it up, turned […]
