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!

Italian Roasted Potatoes and Vegtables

As with most families, we often can’t seem to agree on what to eat. I prefer a vegetable side dish and my husband of course prefers a less figure friendly side dish such as potatoes or pasta. Since I don’t want to spend hours making multiple dishes but want to make everyone happy, I love this dish! I combine red potatoes, peppers, squash and some Italian seasonings to create a dish that is sure to make everyone happy!

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!

Greek Kale Salad

So like everyone, I get stuck on different foods and want to eat them all the time. This past summer, I became a fan of Kale for many reasons. First, it's super healthy and second, it's very versatile. You can throw it into soups, and casseroles, blend it, bake it into chips or make a tasty salad out of it. My favorite salad is from the Nugget, a Mediterranean Kale salad that packs a punch. I decided to create my own version of this salad since it's unlikely they will give me their recipe. Enjoy!
