#MacroFriendlyMondays — Green Bean Fries—Two ways!

An entire 14oz bag of green beans is only 150 calories! This is great if you are a #VolumeEater like me! I have them almost nightly as a side with dinner. Roasted green beans are 💯! Method: Steam in the microwave per package (6 minutes for me), drain, then spread on a baking sheet lined…

No Boring Veggies! {How To Roast And Season Veggies}

Anybody ever had some poorly cooked and very sad broccoli that wasn’t worth eating? Yup. Me too. But it’s still one of my favorite veggies! Sometimes it’s not actually the food itself we don’t like. Sometimes it just isn’t seasoned properly and/or cooked in a way we prefer. Many people claim that they “don’t like…

Christmas Crack Slaw!

I actually made this recipe last year for Christmas and have been waiting all year to share it! The lovely Christmas colors make it the perfect side dish at your Holiday meal, but it would make a great side dish in the summer months too, especially for a BBQ. It is so refreshing and bursting…

#MacroFriendlyMonday16 — Crockpot Seafood Jambalaya!

This recipe turned out even better than expected! Last week was Cajun themed recipe night at church small group. We have one member who is pescatarian, so I wanted to bring a recipe that would fit my macros as well as give her something she could enjoy since most the rest of the other dishes…

Easy Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Kid, husband, and foodie approved roasted Brussels sprouts! I firmly believe that cooking vegetables is more about the right method and seasoning than anything else.

Healthy “Hash Browns”

  I have not always been a “healthy” eater. In middle school and high school, I could put away some hash browns. Walffle House, McDonald’s, Hardee’s, etc., and always drowning in ketchup, because #Basic 😂 Nowadays, I still enjoy crispy potatoes, but with actual nutritional value—and without all the grease 🤢 #NotSponsored #WouldTotallyThough 😉  …

How to Make Salads That You Will Actually Enjoy {Plus TONS of Pics}

Salads get a bad rap for being bland and tasteless and for leaving us unsatisfied and hungry for more food. They’ve been labeled the ultimate diet food. This makes me incredibly sad. I feel as though salads are the ultimate health food, but that does not make them synonymous with boring, bland, and dreaded food….

Crispy Roasted Asparagus {AKA The Yummiest Asparagus Ever}

This Asparagus is so flippin’ delicious, you’ll want to eat the whole bunch! I love how the tips and sides get crispy, but the rest is perfectly tender. The sad part is that it has turned my husband and I into asparagus snobs. Asparagus is one of our favorite sides because it is healthy and…
