Grilled Guac-Turkey Burgers on Tortilla ‘Buns’

I’ve made something similar to these a while back but today I was inspired by 2 things. My Assignment from the California Avocado Commission was simply: BBQ/grilling recipes. As a self proclaimed grill whore, I was excited to say the least. Tasting the most amazing guac I’ve ever had at FitBloggin‘ made by my friend Brandi. Show More Summary

Grapefruit Breakfast in a Glass

The last week has been an absolute blur. I left Tuesday for Denver to host the 6th annual FitBloggin‘ conference. It was a little bittersweet as I passed the torch to another organization to take over planning and logistics from nowShow More Summary

Burger Salad With Fresh Herbs and Feta

In the summer I’m a salad girl all the way. With the extra variety in fresh produce I find turning my favorite meals into salads an easy way to get more veggies in. On the flip side, cheeseburgers are HUGE in my house. I like to grill...Show More Summary

Simply Grilled Green Beans

So sorry I’ve been MIA here on GreenLiteBites. I’ve been cooking and actually snapping lots of photos but finding time to actually post is proving difficult. I’m in the home stretch of FitBloggin‘ planning and this my last year doing so. Show More Summary

Leftover Chicken and Spaghetti Squash Tacos

I love transforming leftovers into something completely new and tasty! This idea uses leftover cooked chicken and spaghetti squash to make some really awesome, yet super simple tacos. I’ve used spaghetti squash in a burrito before with fabulous results. Show More Summary

Grilled Cheese With Avocado and Chicken

This month’s official California Avocado Commission assignment was simply: A sandwich. Immediately I had an image of a grilled cheese with avocado. I mean, grilled cheeses are already yummy and indulgent, add a little avocado and itShow More Summary

Asian-Inspired Spicy Cabbage and Turkey

I took the boys to visit my mom this past weekend. As per usual (now you know where I get it from), she prepared a crap-ton of food. Every summer salad you can think including my favorite, Italian pasta salad, burgers, hot dogs, sausage, chicken, and our first corn on the cob of the season. Show More Summary

Avocado Egg Salad in Bell Pepper Cups

The California Avocado Commission just needs to hire me as a full time ambassador or something. We are currently working together on a post-per-month contract but I can’t help myself. I love coming up with new ways to eat avocados! (And...Show More Summary

Green Pineapple Core and Coconut Smoothie

I hate wasting food. I’m not Molly Ms. Perfect but I do normally try to do things like eating leftovers, using bones to make soup, and freezing aging fruit for recipes. I also love this bagged spinach trick and I even have freezer bags of vegetable scraps to use when I make stock. I have, however, gotten [...]

Portabello, Sausage, Kale and Spagetti Squash Skillet

I’m finding my groove again with keeping fresh ingredients on hand for inspiration. This was yesterday’s lunch and I’m shocked how simple yet how delicious it was with only 5 ingredients! Sausage Roll: I’ve been keeping one of these on hand to add to eggs in the morning but I love how versatile it is. Show More Summary

Whole Wheat Chocolate Breakfast Muffins

On Mother’s Day I decided to whip up a batch of chocolate muffins. Of course I couldn’t just follow a recipe as written — where’s the fun in that? — so I dug online for one I could use as a starting point. The recipe I found was pretty typical and called for the addition of chocolate chips and chunks but I skipped all that. Show More Summary

Quinoa-Topped Portobello Melt

This was one of those lunch idea that just hit me when I opened the fridge. I’ve been trying to keep cooked quinoa on hand for quick meals and I picked up a packed of portobello mushrooms this past weekend just because. When I saw both...Show More Summary

The Ultimate Breakfast Avocado Toast!

I’ve seen it all over the internet: Avocado Toast. Just do a google search? It’s crazy! Everyone and their mother seems to be smashing avocado and topping toast. This all seems new to me but then again I’m new to avocados so it all makes sense. Anyway, it was time for me to join the party. Show More Summary

Leftover Baked Sweet Potato With Spinach and Sausage

Recently I’ve been doing myself a favor and baking extra potatoes when I make dinner. They’ve been a great addition to my eggs in the morning and now I figured out how to easily use then for lunch! This is another super simple idea with really tasty results. Show More Summary

Ham and Cheese Quinoa Bowl

Last week I made a big batch of quinoa to keep in the fridge for quick meals. I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with it but I figured if it was there I’d eat it. And I did! Quinoa has such a fun texture and really takes on the flavors of whatever you mix in or cook it with. So in a way it’s a blank slate in the same way pasta, rice or even bread is — and [...]

Raw Beet and Apple Salad

THIS SALAD IS AMAZING! I’m sorry but it totally warrants some excitement. I made it the other day and I couldn’t believe how yummy it was. Raw beets… I’m on a kick! I’ve had a couple of beets in the fridge for a couple weeks and I’m in a use-them-now-or-never situation. Show More Summary

Smooth Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie With a Secret Frozen Ingredient

Once I announced I was working with the California Avocado Commission I found myself fielding lots of avocado questions. Everything from how to cut them to how store them but the most common topic involved managing their ripeness. Avocados are like banana or mangoes, they will ripen on your counter in a few days.

Crispy Skinned, Citrus Roasted Chicken

After getting back from an AMAZING trip to New Orleans with The Husband I was ready to hit my kitchen running. I love eating out but nothing beats a home-cooked meal. I defrosted a small whole chicken for a few hours in a sink full of...Show More Summary

Ground Turkey and Butternut Squash Chili

Since canceling my CSA membership I’ve been trying to visit a local farm store for every other grocery shopping trip. This way I’m buying a bit more locally while reducing the amount of processed food in the house because it just isn’t available at those places. The farm store near me is great for not only produce but poultry. Show More Summary

Fish Tacos With Avocado-Lime Dressing

This is my first official post for the California Avocado Commission but, you know, I’ve been going a little avocado crazy in these parts since they sent me that case. My mission this month was to California-ize a recipe using avocado. Show More Summary
