  • Yummy & Easy Low Carb Zucchini Lasagna Boats

    Sometime in the last few years, J and I became slobs. Truly proper slobs, really. Sweatpants or leggings. T-shirts. Uggs. Scary food like Taco Bell. Fifteen years ago I hardly ever ate processed food, sugar or any manner of other bodily poisons. After coming off a huge weight gain in my 20s, I became a kind of health nazi that left me aggressively avoiding red

  • A Black Bean Brownies Experiment via Dr. Fuhrman

    When J said, “That sounds absolutely disgusting.”  I knew I had to make these black bean brownies.  I remember hearing about black bean brownies over a decade ago and being curious.  Then some company or other I follow on Facebook posted about them a few weeks back.  They made it to the “to try” list since I already had all the

  • Pinterest Vs. Reality: Zucchini Sandwich From Honestly Yum

  • Easy, Healthy Lunch Idea: Avocado Feta Lettuce Wraps

    As someone who works from home running my own tiny little business, I have the luxury of making lunches just as complicated as I dare.  I’ve been known to make quesadillas with sauteed vegetables, roast chicken, and other concoctions those working in typical office environments just can’t do.  And while I enjoy that indulgence during slow periods, lethargic periods, and

  • Healthy, Easy, Fast Dinner – Sausage with Cabbage “Pasta”

    I don’t know about you, but I really hate throwing out food.  When fruit starts to look scary, I put it in a smoothie.  When there’s leftover meat, I throw it in an omelette.  If eggs are getting on toward, I make a quiche and freeze it. So when I had some cabbage lying around that was getting a little
