If You Are A Lover Of Mediterranean Food, Like Me, You Will LOVE These Chicken Tzatziki Bowls!

I can’t even begin to tell how how delicious these Chicken Tzatziki Bowls are! I am a sucker for Mediterranean food, so I knew I would love it… but my husband, who is not as in love with Mediterranean food, was obsessed with it! Of course I left the olives off of his… god forbid he eat an olive. The bitterness of the tomato and cucumber salad paired so nicely with the tart and spiciness of the chicken. I will definitely be making this one again!

This Southwestern Black Bean, Quinoa and Mango Salad From Skinnytaste is To Die For!

I told you guys a while ago that I was trying to be better at eating lunch.  The only way for me to do this, is to meal prep.

The spiciness of the jalapenos paired with the sweetness of the mango is to die for! I made this whole serving, and had enough for 3 lunches. Give it a try!

Bacon… It’s What’s For Dinner. Try This Healthy Twist On Your Traditional BLT

Sometimes my husband and I just want something really easy to make for lunch or dinner. Recently he requested a BLT, bacon lettuce and tomato sandwich, which I delivered with a healthy twist. Instead of mayo we opted for some delicious avocado to get some healthy fat.  Enjoy!

My First Experience With Sriracha Sauce (Can You Believe It)! Skinny Taste’s Honey Sriracha Chicken and Broccoli

I tried sriracha sauce for the first time… Skinny Taste’s Honey Sriracha Chicken and Broccoli. It was Sunday morning, and my husband was preparing the food list  for the week. “What are we having for dinner this week?” Ugh, the dreaded question he asks me every week!  I hate having to pick out dinners. It’s stressful to find new recipes because, what if it isn’t good? What if it’s too difficult?  What happens if I screw it up (pizza delivery, anyone?).  

I love Skinnytaste recipes, so I started with her blog, and found this Honey Sriracha Chicken and Broccoli recipe and had to give it a try. I literally just said to my husband last week that I have never had sriracha! Not only was this meal SO easy, it was equally as delicious.  I even made extra for lunches this week. 

I hope you enjoy this meal as much as me and my family did!

Yummy, Colorful Kids’ Trail Mix

I’m back on the hunt for kid-friendly snacks. This time I found a great recipe for a trail mix! All I had to do was buy the ingredients, and throw them all together.  

The beauty of trail mix is that you can add as much or as little of something as you want. When I first gave it to my daughter, so went straight for the M&M’s… duh, what kid wouldn’t?!  She eventually ate every piece in the mix because she really does like everything in there. This trail mix is perfect to put in a little baggie and go. Give it a try, and see if your kids like it too! Did I mention that my husband also had his hands in the bowl?

Do You Need A Healthy Snack For A Picky Toddler? We Have Just What You Need!

Having a picky-eater toddler can be so rough! I know most of them go through this stage, but it is driving me crazy. I feel like she is eating like crap because all she wants to eat are potato chips. I was on the hunt for toddler-approved snacks, and it feels like I hit a goldmine.  These Frozen Greek Yogurt Melts had her coming back and asking for more. I can’t even begin to tell you how easy they were to make either. It took about 3 minutes to prepare, and all I had to do was pop them in the freezer for an hour. If you have a picky eater like I do, this might be your saving grace!

Enjoy!

Are You Sick Of Your “Normal” Burger Night? Then Try These Greek Turkey Burgers With Tzatziki Sauce And Greek Tomato Salad

In the summer, turkey burgers are a staple in my house. I don’t grill, that’s my husband’s job, so they’re easy to make for me 🙂  I wanted to mix up our “normal” turkey burger night, and stumbled upon this recipe because I am a sucker for Medeterranian food. All I can say is WOW. These Greek Turkey Burgers With Tzatziki Sauce And Greek Tomato Salad burgers were so freakin’ delicious. My husband couldn’t stop talking about how he wanted to eat another one. I promise you… you’ll want to make these!

Enjoy!
