Butternut Ginger Soup With a Side of Diet Tips

This weekend I made the most amazing, simple soup and it reminded me of all the little things I do day-to-day to help me feel in control of my diet. Before we go any further let me establish I despise the word “diet” when used to represent...Show More Summary

Shrimp Tacos With Peanut Sauce

This weekend I got back from our annual week at the shore, itching to cook something in my own kitchen that wasn’t pizza, hamburgers or cheesesteaks — the trifecta of beach food for us. I hit the grocery store after unpacking to restock the fridge and get some fresh food in the house. Show More Summary

Balsamic Beef With Zucchini

I am between summer trips at the moment so my kitchen has seen busier days. Last week I took the boys on our yearly mother-sons adventure (click here for photos and a  recap) and next week we head to the Jersey Shore for our annual week...Show More Summary

Simple Oven-Roasted Brisket — My First!

Cooking large cuts of meat isn’t something that came natural to me. Whole chickens, large roasts, even pork loins I used to find intimidating. I’m not sure why — in some ways they are easier to prepare than individual steaks or chops. Show More Summary

Slow Cooker Ginger Beef

It’s been 3 weeks since my last post but I’m still alive, I swear! A few weeks ago I started consulting for a small tech firm and my days have been filled with programming learning modules. I’m also still managing the gym and last I checked, I have two kids running around this place somewhere. I kid. Show More Summary

Quinoa, Pineapple and Mango Salad With Avocado

Oh, how I missed my kitchen! It’s been a crazy couple of weeks and I’ve been eating out more than I want to admit. It all started two weekends ago with a trip for the Middlebury Maple Run Half Marathon — click here for my recap — I spent four days in beautiful Vermont and ate my weight in cheese — totally worth every bite, by the way. Show More Summary

Salisbury Steak With Simple Mushroom Gravy

This is fast becoming a staple dinner in my house. It’s a simple meal that only has one ingredient the kids turn up their noses to: mushrooms. Other than that they love it just as much as The Husband does, who, if it was up to him, would eat this daily. Show More Summary

The Perfect 3-Ingredient Soup with 2 Meal-Planning Tips on the Side

I’m not one of those people who plans a week’s worth of meals on Sunday and then just lets it play out. I tried, believe me. It just doesn’t work for me. I’m more of what I call a pantry cook. I’d much rather keep things in stock, buying when there are sales and then reacting to what I have on hand day-by-day. Show More Summary

Beef with Eggplant and Brown Rice

Pretty boring name, but my word … what a tasty dish! I’ve gotten in the habit of buying a large eggplant every week specifically for my Whole30 Go-To chili but I’m getting bored with it. So I decided to use the eggplant as inspiration...Show More Summary

Brown Rice and Artichoke Bowl with Chicken and Feta

I picked up a can of artichoke hearts months ago with no idea what I would do with it. Last summer Mom made a pasta salad with artichokes and I just remember loving it. The artichoke is totally a vegetable I underutilize. I don’t know much about them except what I’ve seen on the Food Network and I’m terrified of them fresh. Show More Summary

Quinoa With Beets, Pumpkin Seeds and Chives

Last night at 3 a.m. I pulled into the driveway after a 15-hour drive from Florida. We took the kids to Disney for Spring Break in honor of The-Now-5-Year-Old‘s birthday. We had a blast but I’m happy to be home. Although, being greeted...Show More Summary

Banana Bread Smoothie

Ever since I got my NutriBullet I’ve been a little smoothie happy, especially at night. My new strategy to fight the nighttime munchies is to come up with a fun, nutritious smoothie. Something tasty, filling and satisfying. Well, yesterday, I hit a home run with this banana bread inspired creation. Show More Summary

Turkey Chili with Sweet Potato, Eggplant and Mushrooms

I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned this before but I’m a one-pot girl. To the dismay of my kids and picky husband I love chili-like dishes, stews and skillets. Throw it all together, pour it on the plate and I’m happy! It’s fun coming up with combinations that work this way too. Show More Summary

The Ultimate Scramble With Bacon, Brussels Sprouts and Potatoes

Yesterday I confessed on my weight loss/maintenance blog that I’ve lost a bit of motivation to post here on GreenLiteBites. I was temporarily reenergized with my Whole30 stint but alas, it’s faded. I’m cooking though. A lot! It’s the blogging part that’s got me. Show More Summary

Chicken, Sweet Potato and Apple Stew

I can’t believe I’m about to say this but I miss Whole30! I’ve come to the conclusion that I thrive in a Chopped–like environment. Give me a handful of ingredients and I start to problem-solve,  and for some reason the constraint causes...Show More Summary

Mushroom and Potato Starter

Last week 8-ounce packages of mushrooms were on sale. I only needed one package for my chili but since they were buy one, get one I picked up the second not knowing what I’d do with it. Yesterday morning it hit me. I came home from the...Show More Summary

How to Cook a Whole Chicken in the Slow Cooker

I did it! I finally got my act together and recorder a video! 5 minutes in the morning. 5 minutes after work. Dinner done! You really can’t beat it. Here’s what I did in case you don’t have time to watch my 4 minute video… 1 onion cut...Show More Summary

Double Chocolate Banana Almond Smoothie With Greens

Since starting Whole30 I’ve given up my post-workout protein powder since it was loaded with sugar and sweeteners. In its place I purchased a  NutriBullet so I could make quick smoothies at home and I could’nt be happier! This things...Show More Summary

Butternut Squash Cakes

It’s been a snowy weekend here in Maryland. Currently I’m buried under about 2 and a half feet. The drifts around the house are insane! The Husband and I spent about 2 hours shoveling this morning just to clean off the driveway. Before...Show More Summary

Warm Blueberry Chia Pudding

I needed a break from eggs and dinner leftovers for breakfast. It’s been cold in these parts and all I wanted was a warm bowl of awesome.  Normally that means oatmeal, but I’m 20 days into Whole30 and there’s no giving up now! I rummaged...Show More Summary
