Instant Pot® Salsa Chicken and Cuban-Style Black Bean Power Bowl

Does anyone else get annoyed when they find a photo of a recipe they want to make but then have to scroll down through an entire explanation of this random bloggers weekend trip to Branson (with 700 photos) before you get to the actual recipe? Same. So I’ll spare you the boring details about my…   Read More»


Greek Pita Pockets

I’m all about meals you make once and can eat for several days in a row, especially for lunch. These Greek Pita Pockets may not photograph well but they sure hit the spot when lunchtime rolls around. No microwave required. You can make the tzatziki dip yourself or pick up a pre-made one. I found…   Read More»


Spaghetti Squash Orecchietti Mushroom Soup

This is the one of the best soups I’ve ever made! Plus– it’s good for you. It is high in nutrients and packs major flavor. With a trio of mushrooms, the savory flavor is similar to miso soup (the popular starter at Japanese steakhouses) and I added a little kick with the jalapeno. The orrechietti…   Read More»

Bow Thai Pasta Salad

Recipe Post by Megan Metropulos, MS, RD, LDN When I started my first job after grad school, I’d pack my lunch for the next day every night before I went to bed. As much as I love cooking, packing my lunch was one of the last things I wanted to do at 9:30pm every night. One…   Read More»

Spinach & Feta Quiche with Sweet Potato Crust

One of my new clients is killing it. Running 5Ks and breaking her personal records, getting ready for her first duathlon, fueling her body with real, whole foods and even sending ME new recipes! This is one she told me I just had to try. A sweet potato crust? I was skeptical. Wasn’t it going…   Read More»


Triple Decker Enchilada Pie

One of my life goals seems to be trying to get my clients to eat more fiber. It’s rare that someone is meeting their daily need consistently (25  grams for women; 30 grams for men). On the days they are, I look to see what they’re eating. Apples, beans, massive salads, chia seeds, chickpeas… that’s the…   Read More»


How to Buy the Best Thanksgiving Turkey

The turkey: no Thanksgiving feast is complete without it. There’s always a debate about what you should stuff it with, how you should cook it, how long you should cook it and who gets to break the wishbone. But there’s one more really important question you should be asking, one more step that needs considering before you…   Read More»


Easy Ahi Tuna Power Bowl

Move over college kids, Ramen isn’t just a dorm food anymore. I’m pretty sure Ramen noodles were one of the first things I learned to make for myself. In high school, my friends and I used to make instant mashed potatoes out of the box, add the noodles, seasoning packet and butter and call it…   Read More»
