Fact: When I cook a new, healthy dish for my family, the percentage of family members who like it looks something like this:
I like it 99% of the time (obv). My husband likes it 90% of the time (probably less but he knows better). My 12 year old daughter likes it 50% of the time and my 9 year old son about 70%.
So as you can see, it is quite easy to please me and my husband, but not necessarily my kids.
Fact: I don’t take a strong stance for or against any certain way of eating. In my opinion, the key to health is tons of veggie consumption.

Tired of making the same old vegetable side dishes?
If so, here is a delicious, simple cauliflower recipe you can add to your rotation!
I love how versatile cauliflower is. In my opinion it has a milder flavor which really allows it to soak in the flavor of its seasoning.
I got this roasted cauliflower recipe from a friend a few years ago and it has become a keeper. The combination of sweet and savory is just perfect.
Enjoy! Continue reading →
This past Sunday I caught myself at home, ALONE, at lunch time. It was one of those miraculous times when each member of my family had to be somewhere.
Unfortunately I had not done the food shopping yet, and I was starving. I knew I wanted to load up on veggies at lunch since I was out the night before, had some cocktails….too much dinner….decadent dessert. I needed a Sunday mini detox. But unfortunately I looked in my fridge to find one lonely carrot and half of a cucumber.
But then I remembered I had lots of frozen veggies in my freezer. Yay!! I took out frozen riced cauliflower, frozen broccoli, and frozen onions and thought to myself, “Now what the heck can I do with these?” Continue reading →
The other day my family visited my brother and sister-in-law and enjoyed quite a feast. Upon returning home I decided it was the perfect night for a healthy, quinoa dish.
There are endless ways to prepare quinoa. Hot. Cold. With veggies. With meat. Nuts, seeds, cheese….
I like experimenting with different combinations, and this time I scored a home run and couldn’t wait to share it with you! It’s the perfect mix of veggies with some crunch and a little sweetness to boot! (Don’t forget to check out the time saver tips at the end of the post.) Continue reading →

As many of you know, I frequent Trader Joe’s weekly, without fail. I love that place. Some of you have literally asked me if I am a rep, or if I get paid by them! (By the way, I am not and do not!)
So when I find new discoveries it is my biggest pleasure to share them with you. This past weekend I went on my weekly shopping trip and discovered 3 new foods that get the thumbs up from me AND my family!
