Green Goddess Dip

I’m always on the lookout for delicious healthy food. I typically have a sweet tooth and like salty snacks too. I don’t discriminate; I love all food!! But, my PCOS has been going through one of its cycles and I’m spiraling to curb the weight gain. I’ve set a goal to start focusing on nutrition…

Kale Chips

Eating healthy doesn’t always come naturally. Throughout my adult life, I’ve had periods of indulging more than I’d like. Since having my daughter, it’s been harder to find the balance to keep up with workouts and focus on healthy eating. Sometimes convenience wins out and I’ve grown tired of this pattern. A few years ago,…

Reindeer Chow

The last few years, my aunt has brought festive bags of reindeer chow to my annual Christmas cookie swap. It’s salty and sweet with a crunch. Snack mix is always a welcome treat anytime of year. Reindeer chow includes; Chex cereal, pretzels, peanuts, Cheerios and M&M candies. You drizzle the mixture with white chocolate and…

Everything Pumpkin- Trader Joe’sĀ 

My town doesn’t have the wonderland that is Trader Joe’s. If I’m lucky, I make it down once a year. When my parents told me they would be in the Richmond area, I quickly messaged them my lists of requests. They were super kind to oblige me.  I basically said, anything pumpkin please! Well they…

Cinnamon Apple ChipsĀ 

Have you ever tried apple chips? On occasion, I pick up a bag and snack until I reach in and realize, they’re all gone.  Since fruit is healthy, it’s easy to indulge in this crispy treat. Fall is right around the corner, I’m thinking of Autumn flavors like pumpkins, caramel and apples.  I picked up…

Roasted Chickpeas

My sweet tooth has been in overdrive lately. For awhile, I was a very conscious eater and my will power was at an all time high. After my last pregnancy (which was two years ago!) I’ve slowly unraveled and crave junk, cheese and carbs. My favorite food groups recently, have been Ben & Jerry’s ice…

No Bake Monster Cookie Granola Bites

Who loves a good snack? I live in a household of snackers and when I found this recipe last summer, I knew it would make a terrific after school snack. It’s sweet with a touch of saltiness and to me that’s a winning combination. These bites are great for on the go, they are easily…

Fruit Salad

Late Spring and Summer are wonderful because so many produce are available fresh and ready. I like eating fruit salad because it’s ready made to consume over a couple days. It’s also versatile that you can use any fruit you have on hand. My kids like to eat it, which makes it a perfect addition…

Sweet & Salty Snack Mix

The other week I was grocery shopping and came across a snack mix made by Cheez-It crackers. It was a sweet and salty combination of snack foods and my son and I reduced it to nothing with a quickness. It wasn’t a very big box and it was almost $3.00, so I started thinking it…

Mini pig in a blankets

Super Bowl Sunday has arrived! Football fans nationwide rejoice!! Me on the other hand, I don’t know the first thing about football and don’t have a “team”. What I do have is a love of food and time spent together with friends and family. So this is a holiday I can get behind. Also, I…
