Chickpea Salad Mojito Style

Mojito-Style Chickpea Salad

One of my most popular recipes on GreenLiteBites is something I literally whipped up in minutes. I never expected it to be pinned almost half a million times.

That’s INSANITY!

The idea is a simple Chickpea and Tomato Salad that uses a quick homemade dressing and some fresh basil. Read the rest of this post »»

Flour-less Chocolate Cupcakes

Flourless Chocolate Muffins

Every once in a while I get a hankering to experiment with a muffin idea.

Sure, I could just use one of the million tried-and-true muffin recipes out there, but where’s the fun in that?

I’d much rather get creative and push the envelope to make something new, with foods I actually want the kids and I to eat. Who needs processed white flour when you can use oats and almonds! Read the rest of this post »»

Chia Porridge

Overnight Maple Cinnamon Chia Porridge

Like most food habits, my breakfast choices have slowly morphed over the years. When I initially lost weight (70 lbs 8 years ago) my go-to was a bowl of All-Bran with skim milk. Then I switched to soy milk, then almond. I started adding berries and other fruits.  Soon my daily cereal became oatmeal. Read the rest of this post »»

Kale Quinoa Salad with Dried Cranberries and Sunflower Seeds

Kale Quinoa Salad With Dried Cranberries and Sunflower Seeds

I’m learning when you buy a 2 lb bag of kale, you have to figure out how to eat 2 lbs of kale!

I’ve already put it in eggs, made chips, a cheeseseak and tonight I’m making a fried rice with it and some leftover pork.

Yesterday, I took a chance and… Read the rest of this post »»

Grilled Mushroom and Onion Topper

Grilled Mushroom and Onion Topper

When my mom sees this recipe she may literally laugh out loud. As a child I declared my hate of both mushrooms and onions more times than I can count!

My 7-year-old is the same as I was, making faces, sticking his tongue out and looking at them in disgust. Read the rest of this post »»

Egg MugMuffin with Spinach, Ham and Bacon

Egg MugMuffin with Spinach, Ham and Bacon

Every time I hear people say it takes too much time or money to eat healthier/lighter I cringe. Sure it CAN be but there are plenty of ways to make small changes to your diet that can be done on a budget and made just as fast as waiting in a drive-thru line. Because let’s be honest, fast food may be convenient but it isn’t always fast and it’s rarely good for you.  Read the rest of this post »»
