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
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
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
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
I’ve made this salad twice since creating and photographing it. I wanted to share it so badly I’m so mad it’s taken me this long to get it up on the site! It’s so tasty in that I-cant-believe-these-few-ingredients-go-so-good-together type of way.
I bought a head of purple cabbage, not knowing what I’d do with it. I was thinking a slaw but then I noticed the ripe pears in my fruit basket and figured…
I’ve been wanting to post this idea for WEEKS! It’s been so long I almost forgot about it which is not like me. Normally I’m a cook-and-post kind of blogger. I like to post while everything’s still fresh in my brain because honestly, I’m getting forgetful in my old age.
That being said, this one I remember well because it was TAST-Y and simple — a great combination. All you need are 4 ingredients.
- Whole-grain Ritz/Triscuits with The Laughing Cow and Turkey Pepperoni
- Red bell pepper slices
- Apple, cut
- Snack: Pretzels and dried apricots (not pictured)

I’m so sorry. I feel like I’ve been neglecting GreenLiteBites. I’ve been cooking and eating, I swear! I’ve even snapped a few shots of ideas that simply haven’t made it to the site yet.
My absence is partially do The 7-Year-Old’s Spring Break, which I’ve been blogging about on my travel blog. We’ve been doing something fun every day this week as a sort of staycation for him. I’ve also been distracted by GreenLiteBites redesign. Read the rest of this post
It’s Easter Eve!
Or "Preaster" as we call it.
I have a houseful of family and a fridgeful of food.
Life is good.
Today I made my traditional Easter dinner of pork loin, asparagus, and baked potatoes… Read the rest of this post
I’ve been a bad pantry stocker this past week. I just didn’t have it in me to hit the grocery store on the weekend resulting in no milk, no eggs, and no bread.
Even my stash of fresh fruits and vegetables was reduced to a browning banana, a few aging leaves of spinach in the bottom of a bag and this …
