Goulash Stir Fry

It has been a while since I posted a new recipe … busy, fun, exciting summer … but it left little time for blogging! And this one was borne out of a need for a last-minute meal based on what was in the fridge. I had stir fry on the menu, but all we had … Continue reading

Shredded Chicken in the Bean Pot

Time for another bean pot recipe! This is absolutely the simplest recipe I have made in a long time. Not even very creative. But it was deliciously yummy (so yummy I needed a way to say it twice!), it is completely economical, super fast to make, and healthy. Anyone who knows me knows … these … Continue reading

Cabbage Casserole … again …

As we are only about a month away from St. Patrick’s Day, I figured it was time to re-visit my Cabbage Casserole recipe. And this time, I wanted to make sure it is fully Lean & Green compliant. So, with some minor tweaking from Nutrition Support at TSFL (some of the most amazing people on … Continue reading

Elk Steak in the Crockpot!

As we currently have a freezer full of elk meat (thank you hubby!), I have been on the hunt (pun intended) for creative new recipes to use it in … recipes that also comply with our Lean & Green lifestyle. And I found one that I can even do in the crockpot! You all know … Continue reading

Easy Kid’s Pizza

Every mom out there has probably made some variation of this type of “pizza” for their kid. But I figured I’d post my little healthy recipe, which my kiddo loves.

Cabbage casserole

So, this is a little late, but figured I’d post my new St. Patrick’s Day cabbage recipe. We really enjoyed this, and there are so many variations you could do to make it fit your lifestyle. As usual, I changed it up from the recipe I originally stumbled across, mainly in an effort to get … Continue reading

Saving $$ on salad

I know this is going to prove to the world that I am a complete genius, but I have discovered a brilliant new way to spend less on the salads I make. More greens, less carbs and dairy!Until now, a salad set before me had a couple of requirements: 1) it must have some sort … Continue reading

Stir Fry

We had another yummy concoction last night. I am digging the extra challenge of this whole healthy eating thing. It seems to be even more satisfying if I meet a goal or beat my old record. I’m rather competitive that way. Which is probably why I enjoy those silly Facebook games so much, getting the … Continue reading

Healthy AND inexpensive!

Hubby and I have officially started our new eating plan. So, keeping dinnertime affordable has become a bit more challenging. So frustrating that eating healthy seems to be more expensive than eating all the pre-packaged crud the stores try to sell you. Anyway … I am now on a mission to find some new healthy … Continue reading

Thank heavens for leftovers!

There are some nights that there just isn’t time to create something new. On those nights, I am always glad when I can find something leftover from a previous night’s meal! This afternoon, I have to get the house cleaned before my kiddo’s nap is over. I should get some weeding done in my yard, … Continue reading
