Pesto Tomato Cheese Pizza. For me, it’s a healthier pizza that I don’t feel guilty for eating. It’s not greasy and it’s super delicious. My husband even loves this pizza!
If you asked my a few years ago to eat this pizza, I wouldn’t have wanted to because it wasn’t real pizza (and by real I mean pepperoni). I hated chopped tomatoes on my pizza. But as I get older, I learn to like things I didn’t. Crazy how that works, isn’t it?
This pizza is super easy to make.
It’s chocolate chip cookie day!
But isn’t that every day? I just love chocolate. And chocolate chip cookies with a strong cup of black coffee… Mmmmmm, so delightful. It’s the simple things that keep life going.
Happy Wednesday to you from my oatmeal bowl!
Let’s talk oatmeal. Oatmeal is one of the healthier options when it comes to breakfast. It gives you a lot of fiber, it’s heart healthy, and you can do so much with it. You can put almost any type of topping you want to give it any kind of flavor you want. From chocolate chip cookie dough, cinnamon rolls, PB & J, to peach or tiramisu, you name it, and there’s probably a recipe out there.
Chicken Apple Stuffed Quesadillas. Not your everyday quesadilla, right? I love me some quesadillas. These are great because they have all kinds of yummy vegetables in them. This recipe is similar to my chicken enchiladas just cooked and served a little differently. Eating quesadillas are a great way to incorporate vegetables because you have cheese to make them taste better. What’s not to love?!
As a momma, it’s hard to always find something quick to make for a snack before my little one decides to go venture somewhere he’s not supposed to. Even if I have barriers set up, he somehow finds a way to get around them! I’m not really a huge snacker but I do think it’s great for your metabolism to have a few small healthy snacks throughout the day, especially if you’re active. Plus, sometimes you just need that little extra energy to make it through until the next meal. That’s why I made these frozen yogurt and blueberry granola bites.
Smoothies seem to be the new go-to for breakfasts. They are great for grab n’ go mornings. They are easy to make and you can put basically anything you want in them. And for the most part, they’re pretty healthy for you too. Well, this morning I was feeling a smoothie… so I made a berry peach smoothie. Greatest thing?! It only took 6 ingredients! I love simple and quick recipes. We had an a peach that was getting almost too ripe, so I needed to use it right away. Those peaches were from our local Farmer’s Market and you could literally taste the right-off-the-tree freshness.
This homemade enchilada sauce is some of the best stuff ever. You’ll never want to buy canned again.
It’s super easy and only takes 10 MINUTES to make! Super simple, yet it tastes like a little bit of a Mexican restaurant in your mouth.
Mexican food is a popular cuisine in my family. We have it ALL the time, but one of our favorite dishes is Chicken Enchiladas. Now, if you’ve ever been to Mexico or had real enchiladas, these aren’t quite that but these are a “Tex-Mex” version. Still so DELICIOUS.
It’s super simple to make too! All you need is chicken, tomatoes, onion, bell pepper, tortillas and enchilada sauce. I like to make my own enchilada sauce because it tastes fresher but whatever you have on hand works great.
It’s seriously my most favorite meal ALL DAY, EVERYDAY.
These muffins are so moist and have a great balance of sweetness from the sugar and tartness from the blueberries and lemon. And they have a delicious buttery crumble that just leaves you wanting more with every bite. Plus, they’re one of my husbands favorite muffins.
I had one of those days where you find your clothes in parts of your house where clothes should never be… Somehow I left my running shorts inside my pantry. I clearly know myself well. Eat and exercise, right?! I literally spent all morning trying to figure out where they were and finally just assumed that they were in with the dirty clothes. Low and behold when I get ready to make dinner and open the pantry, there they were. I guess it’s better than finding them in the fridge.
It’s obvious that my mind wasn’t thinking very clearly. It was one of those days where “you-want-chocolate-but-not-too-much-to be-uhealthy” kind of days, but in the back of your mind, you’re really thinking, “meh-who-cares-I’m-going-to-eat-all-the-chocolate-I-want-and-be-happy-about-it.” Tempting…
I ended up settling for these peanut butter chocolate energy bars.
