Quinoa With Blueberries and Feta

I always forget about quinoa and then when I whip up a quick dish I remember how awesome it is. The texture, the way it soaks up the flavor of anything you add to it, the health benefits — it makes a great quick meal or side dish. The other day I turned a serving into a great lunch. Using the leftover Basil-Mint Dressing I made for my shrimp salad as a flavor base I added a bit [...]

Green Salad With Shrimp and Basil-Mint Dressing

I used to be one of those people who “saved” seafood for dinners out. I think it was a remnant of my childhood. We rarely ate seafood at home because it was too expensive. In the summers when I’d visit my dad on Long Island we’d fish and broil the fresh flounder we caught that day. Show More Summary

Creamy Apple Pie Oatmeal From Scratch

Apple Pie Oatmeal is one of my oldest posts here on GreenLiteBites. Eight years ago I shared how I mixed one of those flavored oatmeal packets with applesauce for breakfast. Two years later I dumped the packets and made a version with old-fashioned oats and artificial sweetener. Show More Summary

A Breakfast Cobb Salad From the Shore!

I’m on vacation at the fabulous Jersey Shore and living it up with The Boys. All three of them are sleeping right now. They are wiped from our first marathon day at the beach. I, on the other hand, already got up, took a short run and made this fabulous breakfast! I do my best every year to stock our beach rental with fresh produce. Show More Summary

Blueberry-Avocado Salsa

I would have never come up with this combination if it wasn’t for the California Avocado Commission. Last year at FitBloggin‘ they offered samples of blueberry avocado muffins and they were nothing short of amazing! There’s just something...Show More Summary

Asian Almond Cabbage Slaw

I had my very own cook-fest for the Fourth of July and it was SO FUN! Short ribs, skirt steak, corn on the cob, baked potatoes, blueberry salsa (recipe coming soon) and this Asian-inspired slaw. I’m not sure what possessed me to make it except the giant head of green cabbage I decided to buy last week. Show More Summary

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
