Coconut Petrole Sole with Cucumber Kiwi Salsa

Coconut Petrole Sole with Cucumber Kiwi Salsa

There were many years that I didn’t eat beef or pork.  I mostly ate chicken and fish for my protein sources which was easy when I was at home cooking for myself.  When I went other places, it got harder.  Especially with my family since they are all big meat eaters.  After several Christmas’ going to my grandparents and eating only the salad while everyone else ate prime rib, my grandma cooked up something else for me.  Nothing special, just some fish and zucchini but ever since then I’ve LOVED this particular kind of fish.   For one because it tastes great and for two it will always remind me of the special meal she would make me every year until she passed.

Happy New Years Eve!

Okay so I admittedly didn’t realize it was NYE today until yesterday morning.  It’s never really been all that of an exciting holiday for me and this year is no different.  Actually, while most people are toasting to a new year, I’ll most likely be in bed since I can barely make it up past 9:00pm these days!   We will probably stay home, get takeout and watch the New Years Eve celebration on Netflix while sipping on sparkling apple cider.   New Years Day we have big plans to take down our Christmas decorations and clean our house.  Which I’m both sad and excited about.  I love having Christmas decorations up but I’m ready to clean up and start the New Year fresh!

Speaking of the New Year, I thought I’d finish up 2015 with a short round up with my top 5 food posts from the last year.  I didn’t do as much recipe creating as I’ve done in the past but the few that I did do were definitely enjoyed!

Quick and Healthy Bruschetta Chicken

Quick and Healthy Bruschetta Chicken

Good morning friends!

How’s everyone’s week going?  Mine started out great but unfortunately I came down with a bit of a cold 🙁  Grrrr… I think I’m more frustrated than anything as I just don’t have time to be sick.  Luckily I loaded up on vitamins, elderberry syrup, bone broth and gelatin so am feeling much better today.  Good thing because we have fun plans for the weekend that I just can’t be sick for!

Speaking of our weekend, I’ve got a ton of things to do to get ready for our adventure so I’m just popping in real quick today to share a quick and easy dinner with you all.

With school back in session and life getting a bit busier, quick and easy dinners are a favorite around here.  As I’m sure they are in many other households 🙂  You all know I’m a fan of healthy meals but sometimes healthy can mean multiple ingredients, steps, and time.  However there are TONS of recipes that are very healthy and can be made in a very short amount of time.  One we’ve enjoy is this quick and easy Bruschetta Chicken recipe that is simple to whip up on a busy evening.

The bruschetta is made with fresh, in season ingredients and the chicken is simple to cook on the grill or indoors on a grill pan.  Which is the method I used the last time we ate it.   AND it was enjoyed by all!

WIAW – Creamy Paleo Pesto Dip

Happy Humpday!

It’s been a much slower paced week so far around here which has been nice.  Although it’s been ridiculously hot again.  So much so that I think people are hiding indoors and avoiding even leaving their houses.  It’s been a slow week at Afterburn and yesterday no one showed up for my 8:30 class which was a bummer 🙁  I made the most of it by walking on the treadmill, and rowing with The Love Nugget since I had to wait around until my 9:45 class.

Hi Friends!

Sorry for my absence yesterday.  Like I said this week is tough with a lot to do and of course as my luck would have it, The Love Nugget came down with his first case of pink eye.  Bound to happen right???  Anyway, the past few days I’ve had him with me 24/7 and he’s been pretty quaranteend.  With the exception of running errands and a stop at The Green Boheme for lunch.

Pumpkin Sausage Eggs Benedict with Pumpkin “Cream” Sauce

Pumpkin Sausage Eggs Benedict with Pumpkin “Cream” Sauce

Hi guys!

Hope you all had a wonderful Monday.  I spent the day cleaning and unpacking which wasn’t really ideal but had to be done.  This week is one of those that are going to be pretty crazy so I may be absent a day or two.

Gotta do what you gotta do 🙂  Today though I thought I’d share a yummy recipe we had a few weeks back.  One that includes an ingredient I don’t use as often as I should.  Pumpkin!  For some reason it’s just one of those ingredients I tend to only eat in the cooler months.  When October rolls around I jump on the bandwagon with everyone else rushing to the store to get all the pumpkin!
