Simple Pineapple Green Smoothie

Simple Green Pineapple Smoothie

With a ripe pineapple aging on the counter and 2 kids who refuse to eat it, I had to come up with something fast. I’m always shocked how yummy a smoothie can be with minimal ingredients. There’s no need for protein powder or mixes. Just put some yummy stuff in your blender and let them do their thing. Read the rest of this post »»

Maple Salad with Gouda, Pecans and Dried Cranberries

Maple Salad with Gouda, Pecans and Dried Cranberries

This will be my last maple syrup idea for a while, I promise!

I just came home from Vermont so inspired with my big ol’ jug and it’s so darn good!

This salad came out way better than I thought because honestly, there’s nothing to it! Read the rest of this post »»

Simple Maple Pork Chops

Our Sweet Pork Chop Dinner Adventure!

I was planning on posting a salad I made for lunch yesterday, but last night’s dinner was such an adventure it totally trumped it.

I’m a little obsessed with maple syrup at the moment, so I decided to make a simple sweet pork chop for dinner with some sweet potato fries mixed with regular potato fries and roasted Brussels sprouts. Read the rest of this post »»

Custardy Pumpkin Maple Smoothie

Custardy Pumpkin-Maple Smoothie

OK, hear me out — I know it’s not pumpkin season, but I just got back from a FABULOUS 5-day vacation in Vermont with The Husband. It was our 12th anniversary trip and we went completely kid-less. Can you say heaven?

‘Cause it was!

Strawberry Tuna Salad close up

Strawberry Tuna Salad

I know they aren’t in season yet locally, but the strawberries in my grocery store smelled amazing! I couldn’t pass them up and I don’t regret it one bit. It’s like a little prequel to summer. I can’t wait!

I decided to make tuna salad for lunch yesterday since the boys were eating leftover Chinese. At first I was just going to make one of my standard tuna ideas but then I spied the strawberries and thought, why not? Read the rest of this post »»

Quick Broccoli Pasta Salad

Quick Broccoli Pasta Salad

I’m in desperate need of a good grocery shopping. The past two weekends I’ve been out of town and it’s thrown my whole schedule out of whack.

I have no fresh vegetables in the house, the few fruits in my basket are quickly approaching overripeness and my fridge is pretty much empty besides milk and eggs.

Time to hit the pantry stock! Read the rest of this post »»

The “Oh-These-Are-GOOD” Turkey Burgers

The “Oh-These-Are-GOOD” Turkey Burgers

My first post since the new design! The past few days have been stressful to say the least. I never thought my site would get so big! Currently, GreenLiteBites has over 950 posts, 22,000 comments, and some recipes like the Banana Oatmeal Cups have been pinned over 500,000 times!

This TOTALLY blows my mind. Especially considering I know how many posts didn’t make it Read the rest of this post »»

Roasted Rutabaga

Roasted Rutabaga, Who Knew?

No, really. Who knew?

I’ve never, ever eaten a rutabaga. I honestly had no idea what they were and really, their large, ugly, bulbous appearance didn’t entice me in the least.

I mean, look at it. It’s not very appetizing! Read the rest of this post »»
