Healthy eaters often turn to chicken as a means of satisfying their protein needs. Don’t forget about pork – the other white meat! It’s easy to prepare and goes a long way. I made this recipe last week and it was a hit the first and second time around!

Being a busy mom, I am constantly in search of recipes that are quick and easy, but still healthy and tasty! There is nothing I love more than make ahead marinated meals that can sit in the fridge for days if life gets in the way and thrown on the stove at the last minute for a quick and healthy meal. That is why I love this recipe! It takes 5 minutes to prep and 15 minutes to cook when you are ready. How is that for simple!

One Pot Skinny Tex Mex Casserole


I recently got back to playing tennis and joined a women’s league to up the challenge. Little did I know that a big part of tennis is social, meaning eating and drinking. The host team brings a meal to treat the visiting team. It’s great fun, but can wreak havoc on your waistline. In an attempt to lighten things up while still bringing something that travels well and can sit until our games are complete I found a casserole that fit the bill. I originally pinned it from pinterest, but decided to tweak it a bit to make it quicker and easier. Everyone loved it and asked me to share so here it is!

Boka Dushi (Dutch West Indian Chicken Kabobs)

There is something about meat on a stick that just makes me happy. Maybe it reminds me of all of my camping days trying to put anything and everything on a stick to cook or maybe it’s the simplicity of it, who knows! I love to grill indoor or out and this recipe is one of my favorites. I passed it onto my “Boot Campers” years ago and they love it too. My husband requests it frequently and my kids even like it because it has peanut butter in it. I love that I can marinate it a day in advance and then just throw it together at the last minute.

Quick and Healthy Chicken Enchiladas


When I have a splurge meal, it’s Mexican all the way! After every single Figure competition I’ve ever done, I head straight to the best Mexican restaurant I can find and eat my heart out! I love everything about it, except the fat and calories. Mexican food is hearty, comfy, family friendly and makes for a great mid week meal because there is usually leftovers and it always taste better the second time around. Therefore, I’ll do anything to lighten it up and cut down on prep time. This recipe checks all those boxes.
