When Food Logs Fail

I started a food log back before it was cool. Once I hit my maximum weight in my early college years, I took matters into my own hands and started a food log and exercise program. I had a spiral notebook my Junior Year (that was probably intended to be […]

Tuscan Garlic-Herb Pork Chops

This dish immediately won me over. Beyond easy, it is equally terrific for a weeknight as a weekend meal. The fresh herbs paired perfectly with a grilled chop and the bean salad is equally as fresh with hints of lemon zest, green onions and olives! I used a grill pan, […]

Variety being the spice of life, this recipe will shake up your regular weekly dinner rotation! Fresh herbs, crunchy veggies, tender noodles and succulent shrimp combine for a surprisingly light dinner with just enough heat to make a salad into a satisfying weeknight meal.

Citrus Slaw Salad w/ Shrimp

As the weather gets a little warmer I find myself moving away from my tried-and-true soup recipes in favor of cooler, crunchier meals. This one fits the bill and is a great option for those of you who celebrate Lent (i.e. Meat-free Fridays). If shrimp isn’t your thang, crab meat […]
