Salad Club + Homemade noodle soup

I kind of felt like my blog friend Christine from The Raw Project today. Christine eats more fruits and veggies than anyone I know! We had salad club again at work, and today it was SPECTACULAR! On my salad: spinach, romaine, swiss chard, blueberries, almonds, toasted flax seeds, carrots, cucumber, dried cranberries, a few dried…

Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins

I was reading other people’s blogs the other day when I came across a great blog I’ve never heard of! It’s called Cowgirl Chef. After reading her bio, she was a journalist from Texas, who moved to Paris a few years ago, started cooking Tex Mex there and is now running a cooking school in…

Easy Chicken Tacos

So the other night, we had BAD storms again in the Chicago-land area. At about dinner time, the tornado sirens went off, and that’s pretty rare. So we headed to the basement and stayed there until the storm passed a little over an hour. Tons of thunder and lightening and tons of rain, luckily our…

Skillet Pizza!

One of the things I love to do is make something deluxe when there is seemingly nothing to eat in my house. You can open up the fridge, and look in the pantry and think there is nothing to make. That’s how it was over the weekend, our power was out for a long time…

Meet Tyler – Weight Loss Superstar 144 pounds gone!

1). What was your “Aha” moment when you decided you needed to do something about your weight? I was in the bathroom at work and I looked in the mirror, something I tended to avoid back in those days when I was hovering around 350 pounds. I never liked looking at myself and seeing what…

BBQ glazed chicken rollers

I actually found this recipe from Mission Tortilla’s website. I’m always on the look out for new things I can bring to work for lunch. The better things I make, the less tempted I am to go out to lunch and possibly getting something less than healthy. As soon as I saw the title for…
