This fabulous meal came via Krista S. She was nice enough to share the idea with me and as soon as I saw it I knew I HAD to make it. I’m a HUGE taco fan and I love the idea of ditching the shell and replacing them with crisp lettuce leaves. These are light, super tasty and FULL of fresh veggies. What’s not to love? :)
Preparing for the toddler’s 4th birthday party I decided to make a new marinade and grill up some chicken. The husband pleaded with me to “go safe.” Translation: use tried and true store bought BBQ sauce.
It’s been awhile since we did a breakfast video so I figured, why not? This morning we made a half a batch of Banana Oatmeal Cups with Chocolate Chips using a few substitutes to compensate for my lack of ingredients.
This isn’t the healthiest idea I’ve come with it but it sure is tasty and super easy to make! Plus NO ONE will every know you slashed some fat and added healthy pumpkin to their unsuspecting festive cupcakes.
I realize these are quite out of season but the toddler and I were just in a mood yesterday. You can surely take the same idea and use a different flavor cake mix and pudding box. Read the rest of this post
I’ve been wanting to experiment with a blueberry muffin for FOREVER! I’m not sure this one is complete quite yet. I may tweak it slightly but I’m satisfied with the results and so was the toddler. He ate two! Even the husband took a bite and said they were good. Although he’d never eat a whole muffin. He’s just not a muffin man. :)
I whipped one of these up the other day with a few ounces of leftover turkey meat and I immediately fell in love. The honey mixed in the burger cooked on the outdoor grill created this fantastic burnt sweetness. The mustard adds a bit of tang and the oatmeal keeps it super moist.
I was a bit hesitant when Chiquita asked me to review their new smoothie mixes. I’m not normally a fan of pre-package smoothie mixes or powders as I’d much rather make my own by adding fresh fruit, yogurt and ice to the blender. Just do a search for smoothie and you’ll see how many ideas I’ve posted and to be honest, I make many more that I never tell you about. :) Read the rest of this post
This recipe was sort of a fluke. I made bulgar thinking I was going to use it for something else. Forgot I made it. Saw it in the fridge…Yada yada yada… Quick Fried Bulgar was born. Sorry, not sure where the Seinfeld reference came from. ;~)
Anyway, this is good. I’ve made it twice this week as a quick meal for myself. It’s super tasty and a cinch to prepare. You can’t go wrong. Read the rest of this post
I could eat this kind of meal every day. The leftovers were immediately wrapped and placed in the freezer to stop me from eating more then one. ;~) The video is long as I make them from start to finish but don’t worry you I’ve posted the recipe below.
I’m making history here at GreenLiteBites. My first ever alcoholic beverage! What can I say? I was in the mood. It was a hot day. We spent most of it outside working on the yard, BBQing some chicken, and then took the little guy to a local carnival. Once the toddler was in bed and the husband mentioned he may have a beer, I got a hankering for a summer drink. Read the rest of this post
Update 2: Homemade Almond Milk the Video!
I made a shake after my workout tonight and I have no problem declaring it my favorite immediately. That is how GOOD it was. However, the toddler did not agree. His exact quote was “it’s yucky.” Wonder where he learned that word from. ;~)
This was a quick lunch I made yesterday based on Mom’s Pasta Fagioli (we pronounce it pasta faz-oo.) Mom never made it as a soup, although I’ve seen it that way plenty of times. I always thought of it as the quick pasta meal when we didn’t have meat or sauce prepared.
