I’ve discovered Chia Seeds at my local grocery store and now there is no going back. These things are awesome! Even the baby thinks so. :) Click here to see his first time trying them.
At first I didn’t know what do with them but now I can’t think of ways NOT to use them.
Did that make any sense? Read the rest of this post
We got our first share from the CSA! I’m so excited. Every Friday from now until November we’ll be bringing home fresh, locally grown, seasonal vegetables. Since I really try only to post recipes here on GreenLiteBites I’ve been talking about the farm on JustRoni.com. Click here to see my post about the CSA and here to see what we brought home on this weekend.
Here’s a sneak peak… Read the rest of this post
I recently bought my first bag of Chia seeds seeing them at a local grocery store. I don’t know too too much about them but their nutritional profile intrigued me. One ounce contains 137 calories, 9g of fat, 11g of fiber, 4g of protein. I’m no expert but that’s seems pretty ideal for baby. Especially considering the fat it contains is an Omega 3 Fatty Acid.

Finally my first Farro idea! I have to say, I love this stuff! It’s chewy and yummy and, well, fun!
I tossed it with what I could find in my pantry and it made a wonderfully satisfying lunch. Filling but not heavy, tasty and quite nutrient dense. According to NutritionData.com this salad contains more than 50% of your daily Vitamin A, over 20% Iron not to mention 18g of protein and 12g of fiber! Read the rest of this post
I’ve seen it mentioned in a few of my clean eating and healthy cook books but honestly, I never even thought of Farro as an option for me. I refuse to shop at specialty stores and I try to use only common products that I can keep in stock and purchase from a typical grocery store.
I’ve never had a tuna melt. Is that weird?
I guess that’s what happens when you grow up not liking mayonnaise. I never ate tuna salad or egg salad or chicken salad. Honestly, they always kind of grossed me out.
Then I realized.. hey.. why does tuna salad have to be made with mayo?
I have no idea where this idea came from. I was hungry. It was lunch. I had Brussels Sprouts.
That was all the catalyst I needed.:)
I decided to use a slice of real bacon to add flavor and little fat that would help sauté the sprouts. I’m trying not to fear the traditional “off limit” foods of typical diets. One slice of bacon is not going to kill me.
