Superfood Quinoa Bowl - TwoRaspberries. One Pan Tuscan Pork Chops. Mediterranean Baked Sweet Potatoes. Friends, it’s been a while. How have you been? Do you love this time of year? I do. What have you been eating these days? Salads? Chocolate? Are you getting outside in this lovely, brisk weather? Fall makes me all emotional and introspective. Lately I’ve been eating lots of plants and less sugar. I’ve also been listening to a lot of podcasts. Speaking of good stuff, how about them sweet potatoes? For me, one of the most difficult parts of eating a plant-based diet is getting creative with meal ideas. So, recently I’ve been trying to branch out and experiment with more well-balanced meals, such as these Mediterranean Sweet Potatoes. Or, check out the video on YouTube! The concept is simple: Baked sweet potatoes – cut in half to shorten cooking time Seasoned, roasted chickpeas Garlic-herb sauce Parsley-tomato salad for garnish The result is a 30-minute lunch or dinner that’s both satisfying, savory and sweet, and seriously healthy.

This is my new favorite way to do Mediterranean. Serves: 4 Notes.

Every so often, my husband takes classes to stay up to date with fire information (he’s a firefighter). It is such a blessing that the college is right down the road from our house, so he can come home at lunch.

It’s nice because the kids get to see their daddy, and I get to see my handsome hubby. The last time he came home for lunch, he brought four other guys with him. I needed a meal that would satisfy the bellies of five big guys, a toddler and me. Thank goodness I had advance notice, so I could just throw this chicken teriyaki in the crockpot. It was especially helpful, since that morning, both kiddos were extra fussy. That makes is REALLY hard to get anything done in the kitchen (anyone else know what I’m talking about?). This was a hit.

Bringing back our family meals - Peanut Blossom. 17.2K Flares Pin It Share 16.6K 16K+ Facebook 470 Twitter 11 StumbleUpon 1 Google+ 73 17.2K Flares × I have a confession to make. Over the last 6-8 months I have done the absolute bare minimum when it comes to cooking and feeding my family.

If you’ve been a long time Peanut Blossom fan, you may have noticed a remarkable drop in the number of recipe posts I’ve shared. The few that made it through were only shot because of a food photography challenge deadline. Between some dietary restrictions and my family’s infamous picky eating habits, I lost the will to cook. We’ve been surviving on a sickly rotation of buttered noodles, macaroni & cheese, pizza, and the one dish we could all agree on, my sticky chicken and rice. Guys, this is not me. The obstacles in front of me felt insurmountable, I felt like I didn’t have enough support from the ones eating my food, and it all felt like an unbelievable waste of time, energy, and money. And then a miracle happened.

And then I hit rock bottom. 1. 2. Tropical Punch Good Girl Moonshine (THM GGMS) - Jenn's RAQ. Chia seed energy shot. No no, I don’t keep a bottle of whiskey in my desk drawer. Nor am I an espresso fan. I take a chia seed energy shot. Chia seeds were a staple in ancient Aztec and Mayan diets. They actually got their name from the Mayan word for “strength” since they deliver a supercharged nutritional punch in an incredibly small package.

One of the most unique aspects of chia seeds is their ability to absorb up to 12 times their volume in water: when exposed to water, the seeds form a thick jelly outer covering. The soluble fiber in chia seeds are responsible for their gel-forming capabilities — they have one gram of soluble and four grams of insoluble fiber per tablespoon. One tablespoon of these little seeds has more calcium than a glass of milk. Simply add one teaspoon of chia seeds into a few ounces of water (I don’t typically put this in a shot glass, but a mug since I do it at work — that was just for dramatic effect).

Before we left SC for the freezing cold North I cooked up a storm, so I have some delicious low carb meatball recipes in the queue for the next few weeks – YAY! By the way we are STILL in the freezing cold North and it gets colder by the day it seems. This morning it was -4 with a “real feel” of -26. Toasty. When I left at 6:30am to drop Mr. Hungry off at the project he’s working on I could feel my nose hairs freezing and thought… “I remember this feeling…and I don’t like it.” Meanwhile my friends in South Carolina are whining about how cold they are because it’s in the 40’s during the day and I want to round them up and kick them all in the shins repeatedly while yelling: But I would never do that…at least not the actual kicking part.

It’s drizzled with a whole grain mustard vinaigrette and is sure to satisfy! My grill has been working overtime, can you tell? It hasn’t even really been that hot, but my love for grilling isn’t just because I don’t want the oven on. You know everything grilled tastes better because of the nice, smoky flavor, but I’ve also told you I’m lazy and I don’t like to wash many dishes. If you didn’t already know, I have a Salmon Niscoise Salad here on the blog already, but that recipe is older, and I wanted to do a grilled version. In my other post I mentioned how I first experienced a nicoise salad on a trip to Paris that I took with my husband. There are a few components to this salad, because a classic nicoise always includes fish (normally tuna or even anchovies), haricot verts or green beans, boiled eggs, potatoes, black olives, and tomatoes.

Crispy Chicken Cheese Quesadilla - Briana Thomas. This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for helping me feed (haha...get it...

"feed"...nevermind) my ice cream addiction (and support my site so I can keep giving you free recipes). I’m a huge fan of coconut oil and its health benefits – especially when it’s used to fry up a cheesy, perfectly-seasoned quesadilla to crispy perfection. You know how low carb tortillas can be kind of mushy sometimes? Well that mushiness is nonexistent after coconut oil works its magic. We’re talking crispiness of the most delightful kind. I like to eat this quesadilla with sour cream and sriracha, but you can use salsa or whatever you little heart desires.

This is a single-serve recipe, but you can easily use this concept to make a whole big batch of quesadillas for a kid friendly lunch or supper! Want more single-serve recipes?

Chickpea White Chili ~ Veggie Inspired. Quinoa Veggie "Fried Rice" Quinoa is a wonderful substitute in this protein-packed veggie “fried rice”!

Quinoa is one of my favorite ingredients ever. Error loading player: No playable sources found It has so many amazing health benefits with it’s abundance of protein, unsaturated fats and essential vitamins and minerals, and it even helps to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer (according to Eat to Defeat). Plus, I love the taste of it! It worked so well in this “fried rice” dish, melding so beautifully together with all the veggies. Plus, the drizzled Sriracha was just the icing on the cake!

So here’s how you make this: We’ll start by sweating out some garlic and onion for about 5 minutes or so. Then we’ll add in our mushrooms, broccoli and zucchini, letting them get nice and tender. Next goes in the corn, peas, carrots and quinoa. Once that’s heated through, we’ll stir in the ginger and soy sauce. Go ahead and serve immediately with Sriracha – the most important ingredient of all! Ingredients: Directions: Spinach and Artichoke Mac and Cheese - A Kitchen Hoor's Adventures. Adding spinach and artichokes to regular macaroni and cheese makes this Spinach and Artichoke Mac and Cheese hearty enough even for the most die hard meat eaters.

This week, I was awoken at around 2 in the morning by the most splitting headache I’ve had in a long time. My first thought was the go take something for the pain, but we don’t have anything on the top floor for pain. Why not? I lay there pondering the why not and that I would resolve to bring a small bottle of ibuprofen up from the main floor. So, instead of getting up, going downstairs, and taking something, I desperately tried to go back to sleep hoping it would go away.

Yeah. Later on that morning, the alarm went off, I felt like utter S, and I realized there’s no way I can call in sick. Have you had days like this? On days like this I crave comfort food. Except nuts. I didn’t make this dish on the day that all this happened. And get acquainted they did! Grab a fork. But I did eat a lot of macaroni and cheese growing up. Glycemic Index.

Either way, this beats any kind of rice I have ever had. Best of all, this skillet is completely customizable to what you have on hand – feel free to throw in more veggies or even grilled chicken for extra protein. Quinoa would also be a wonderful healthy substitute for the rice, although I would personally end up having the double the servings instead!
