As I have mentioned previously, my husband and I recently completed the Whole30 challenge. Basically we went for 30 days eating only whole, unprocessed foods. No sugar, no dairy, no grains, no legumes, no alcohol (gasp!) In other words: 30 days of torture. That said, we had amazing results in our health and our waistlines,… Continue reading 5 Ingredient, 5 Minute: Primal Fudge
Hi readers! It’s been a few weeks since I posted because I am currently doing the unthinkable- I’m in the throes of the Whole 30 Program.

Bonus points for the fact that it’s healthy AND the rolling keeps all the juices inside and it’s always so, so moist.… Continue reading Skinny Chicken Cordon Bleu
This delicious dinner takes only a few minutes to throw together, and is perfectly served with rice. The flavors are absolutely perfect, a little sweetness (but not too sweet) and saltiness and a touch of spice. It is probably the best broccoli chicken recipe I have come by. When I was a teenager, I worked… Continue reading Chicken & Broccoli Stir Fry
