Pepperoni Pizza Rice

Leftover brown rice and leftover sauce meet in this quick lunch idea inspired by my favorite food of all time: Pizza.

I swear I can turn anything into a pizza concoction. Have you seen all my pizza ideas? I’ve used everything from pumpkin to zucchini, polenta to wontons. Nothing is off limits when it comes to me and pizza. Not even rice.

The Pineapple Bun

This isn’t a recipe just an idea I had to share. I can’t believe how good it was!

I’ve never had grilled pineapple. Can you believe it? I just never really had the desire to grill it before. When you love something raw sometimes it doesn’t occur to you to cook it. Why mess with a good thing?

Well, I was wrong.

The 2 Minute Breakfast – Mug Egg Video

I recorded this after my Saturday morning workout and before my house was bombarded with family members for Easter.

I put the quick instructions below the video and provided nutritional information for the way I prepared them. Mug eggs won’t replace my morning omelet but when in you’re in a hurry this is a great way to get in a healthy breakfast.

The Laughing Cow 7 Layer Mexican Wrap

You know that tradition 7 Layer Mexican Dip? The one with the cream cheese, guacamole, salsa, lettuce, cheese, green onion and olives?

Yea. That’s the one. Well I had a craving for it the other day. Well, not exactly for it as I can never make anything the way it’s suppose to be made. Although I don’t think I’m alone in this one. Every place I’ve ever seen the 7 layer dip it was a little different, but the concept is the same– Read the rest of this post »»

Roni’s Beef Stew, Yes, BEEF Stew

If you go through the archives of GreenLiteBites I have about 5 total beef recipes. Five. Compare that to the 80+ I have tagged with chicken/turkey there’s a clear winner in the meat department on my blog and in my home.

I don’t have a beef with beef (omg The Husband is wearing off on me in the pun department) it’s just that I always considered poultry the healthier choice in the meat department. Read the rest of this post »»

Green Orange Mango Smoothie

I’m a kitchen sink smoothie maker. Whatever I have on hand goes in the blender and viola! A quick breakfast or a healthy snack.

Last year I posted an “Elastic Approach” to how I make smoothies but I still like to share specific combinations that worked really well. This was one of them.

A Roasted Vegetable Feast!

The other night it was just the kids and I home for dinner and I decided to make what I wanted to make no holds barred. Without The Husband home it’s much easier for some reason. Hmmm wonder why?

Ok, not here to husband bash.. really.. I’m not!

I’m here to share quite possibly the most amazing batch of roasted vegetables I ever made. I’m serious! it was THAT good! Read the rest of this post »»
