- Mini sweet peppers
- cut up cantaloupe
- Gushers (ugh. His “Treat”)
I’m sorry for another non-food post. I’ve had these few housekeeping things to take care of. Anyway, as I said on my Weight Loss Blog, I’ve been sitting on quite a few copies of the GreenLiteBites book and all they are doing is collecting dust in my closet. It’s time to give them away!

With school starting for a 1st grader, a 6 month old learning to eat, and a goal to cook more than we go out, I’m in the middle of a family food frenzy. My goal is to plan, plan, plan! Sunday I’m setting a dinner menu for the week to help me ward off the husband’s requests to eat out.
Anyway, I just wanted to take a minute and let you know about a few things that I have going on. Read the rest of this post
Oh. My. WORD! This was AMAZING!
I don’t know what posed me to make it. I just came home from a run. I wasn’t really hungry but knew I should eat something. So I whipped this up.
The flavors together are simply PERFECT. At least I think so. Dark chocolate! Banana! Almonds! I go gaga over each separately but together? Even tastier. Read the rest of this post

I’m learning fruit can really bump up the fun factor when it comes to sandwiches. First, I used cherries in a Christmas Inspired Panini and then moved to pears for a fun turkey sandwich. Today I experimented with a beautiful ripe plum. It added a fun sweet texture to an otherwise boring turkey sandwich.
I’ve been trying to post this for days! Weeks, actually!
The first time I made this it was simply to use up some Portobello Mushrooms I had in the fridge. Little did I know BOTH husband and child would go gaga over it.
Of course Little Guy didn’t eat the mushrooms themselves, but he loved the chicken and devoured the noodles/rice that were smothered in the gravy. Read the rest of this post
Did I ever tell you my oatmeal story? I hated it until about 6 years ago. Well, hated is a pretty strong word, “avoided” may be better.
Oatmeal just never appealed to me. Who wants a big bowl of mush for breakfast? At least that’s what I thought until I made it for the Little Guy when he started solids.
Cindy sent me this idea and I took it and ran! It just sounded SO good!
Experimenting 3 times, I’ve finally settled on this combination of ingredients and technique. The result is a tasty, meaty, light burger!
I’ve been OBSESSED with cheese lately, craving it something fierce.
Now, you may be thinking… what’s the big deal? Just eat some cheese. But I’m here to tell you, I have a cheese problem.
Once I start, I can’t stop.
I’m SERIOUS! Read the rest of this post
This is an awesome, simple summer dish!
Honestly, I can’t believe how tasty it was. Reminds me of something you’d get on vacation and then wonder why you couldn’t make fun stuff like it at home. Well apparently you can! All you need is some watermelon and jicama!
