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

Simple Spicy Breakfast Sausage

I recently joined ButcherBox and if you are into responsibly raised, grass-fed protein sources you should seriously check them out. They are a meat delivery service that provides 100% grass fed AND grass-finished beef. No hormones, no antibiotics, no feedlots, all pasture raised and completely sustainably. Show More Summary

Almond-Crusted Chicken Breast Over a Warm Brussels Sprout and Bacon Salad

Not being afraid of fat is new territory for me. If Whole30 has taught me anything it’s how easy I can pull together tasty meals with a handful of simple ingredients. One of those ingredients is usually a fat in some form (oil, bacon, avocado) and normally that would scare me but what I’m learning is a little goes a long way. Show More Summary

4-Ingredient Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

I love when simple things come together and make something spectacular, and this soup is simplistically spectacular! I made it on a whim last night because I needed a reason to use the butternut squash that has been on counter and I’m glad I did! To roast the squash all I did was cut it in half and bake at 350 until soft. Show More Summary

Whole30 Chicken Meatballs with Spicy ‘Peanut’ Sauce

I love using what I have to whip up something tasty, and being on Whole30 this month is really forcing me to push the envelope. With all the college bowl games on New Year’s weekend I wanted to make something fun, so I used an old favorite...Show More Summary

My Whole30 Go-To Chili

It’s day 1 for me on the Whole30 challenge. My fridge is stocked. I have lots of leftover Kale Potato Chicken Soup, a huge fruit salad the kids and I made and this amazing chili I whipped up after a big grocery shopping trip yesterday. One...Show More Summary

Kale Potato Chicken Soup and the #Whole30 Challenge Accepted!

I have been cooking up a storm for the holidays, just not sharing anything here as most have been things I’ve already posted. Then again, I could probably re-post as I rarely make the same thing the same way. For example… The kids and...Show More Summary

Coconut Milk Muffins With Banana and Clementines

This morning I decided to stress relief in the kitchen and bake muffins. I know it sounds crazy but I really enjoy experimenting with a new recipe idea and just getting lost in it. I used this can of coconut milk as inspiration. I’ve had this in my pantry for months with no real plan, so why not? I also had some aging clementines and bananas. Show More Summary

Grilled Cheese and Turkey With a Homemade Cranberry Sauce Challenge

This year I perfected my Thanksgiving menu, and for the third time I made my own homemade cranberry sauce. Normally no one enjoys it (or even tries it) but me but this year, I converted my father-in-law who actually chose it over the...Show More Summary

Leftover Thanksgiving Hash

I am ALL about the leftovers this week. Every year Thanksgiving reminds me how awesome it is to cook a big meal and reap the benefits of leftovers. This morning I made myself a simple hash for breakfast. I know everyone makes different...Show More Summary

Lentil Soup With Ground Turkey and Kale

Inspired by two “pantry” items, I whipped up an amazing soup yesterday! First, the pink lentils were an Aldi find. I’ve never seen them before and I felt compelled to pick up a bag. The frozen kale was on sale a few weeks back and IShow More Summary

A ‘Lighter’ Pumpkin Pie My Husband Actually Enjoyed!

Many of you know me and my can’t-follow-a-recipe ways. It’s just not in my DNA to cook something EXACTLY the way someone tells me. I have to put my spin on it, make it my own and go with the flow. This is why I rarely make the same thing twice the same exact way. Show More Summary

5-ingredient Ginger-Spiced Pumpkin Soup

I had this cute little pumpkin sitting on my counter since Evan’s field trip to the farm a couple of weeks ago. We decided to get him a bigger one for jack-o-lantern making so Ryan labeled this one “food.” I pondered what to do with it for a few days and then it hit me: soup! I thought about roasting the pumpkin first but that seemed too daunting. Show More Summary

Turkey, Collard Green and Pinto Bean Chili

If you’ve been following along for some time you know I’m a one-pot fanatic. The crockpot is my friend. I love a big bowl of things like chili or stew. I even devoted a whole category on the blog to “Chili-Like Ideas” because I don’t...Show More Summary

Updated Banana Oat Cups With Flax and Hemp Hearts

Seven years ago I posted a pretty simple oatmeal cup idea, one that I made pretty regularly and even more so now as the kids love them. They make a great grabbable snack you can leave on the counter. I like to eat one on my way to the gym. Show More Summary

The Only Pork Marinade You’ll Ever Need!

It’s been a whole week since I’ve posted here on GreenLiteBites. I can’t believe it! If you follow my other blog you may know I got a new job and the first week has been an adjustment. I’m still cooking up a storm. Actually, I thinkShow More Summary

Simple Two-Tablespoon, Two-Bean, Turkey Chili With Pumpkin!

You may think I’m crazy, but this morning I came home from the gym and made a big batch of chili. With the chilly, rainy weather it just sounded so perfect and I knew I’d have no time later in the day to cook. I wasn’t planning on posting...Show More Summary
