I was at the gym the other day and was looking at the food we had on hand. I love what we offer at our gym because it’s pretty simple to grab & go, and real food-based. However, I’m always in the camp of “can I make this myself?” I looked at the Fuel for […]

Sweet Potato Apple DIY Protein Pouches

Let me set one thing straight before I start this post, spaghetti squash is not spaghetti. While I love the squash and use it in place of pasta, I will not sit here and tell you that it tastes the same or can replace pasta 1 for 1. I’m Italian after all, so I know […]

How to Cook Spaghetti Squash 2-Ways (Instant Pot or Oven)

instant pot applesauce and apple butter

If you don’t know, now you know. I am a fan of the Instant Pot and it’s been a lifesaver in the kitchen for me. I recently took a trip to a local Apple Orchard and I had apples coming out my ears. I didn’t have room for the apples in my house anymore and […]

easy lemon garlic broccolini

I used to hate broccoli growing up. It was like pulling teeth to get me to eat even a small bite. I’m sure I was being extra dramatic. Maybe I was just saving all my vegetable consumption until I was a dietitian?! Who knows. I wish I had known how good vegetables could taste, I […]

I had originally called this Roasted Red Pepper Zucchini SUMMER salad and then I realized summer is wrapping up, boohoo!  However, you can really eat this anytime, so the word summer had to go.

Roasted Red Pepper Zucchini Salad

Ok, can I clear the air for one moment? I guess this is my space to do what I want with, so I’m going to clear the air.  When I’m overwhelmed, I procrastinate. Ok, I said it. Dang, that feels good. Anyone else with me?! Why? Well, I would like to think it’s because I’m […]

Mexican Street Corn Salad

Happy Monday and holy heat wave Batman! I cannot complain because I would much rather be warm than cold. I don’t really mind sweating out every pore as long as I have a way to cool down. But man did it go from warm to oppressively hot in a matter of seconds. With 4th of […]

Crispy Chicken Wings (Baked or Grilled)

When I think of summer I think of laying by or in a body of water, hanging with friends and family, and/or eating/drinking delicious foods/beverages.  I love summer and also love the change up in foods that people crave. I find that we use our grill a whole lot more in the summer, which is […]

Guacamole is one of the easiest (and I’ll argue healthiest) snacks to make this summer, and year round. Gather your favorite ripe avocados and get to making your guacamole! Happy Wednesday! It feels like it should already be Friday as it’s been one of those weeks! Anyone else with me? Sorry, I have been MIA […]

crunchy chocolate peanut butter protein balls

These Crunchy Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Balls are great for the sweet tooth and to hold you over when in a pinch. Make ahead for the week and try not to eat them all at once. I have something to admit. I really REALLY don’t like protein bars or bars in general. I’m cool with […]

This Gluten-Free Buffalo Pasta Salad was made on a whim this past Memorial Day Weekend and I’m not sure how it has taken me this long to make it. I’m not usually one to go for a pasta salad but when I had the ingredients for Buffalo Pasta Salad, I decided why not give it […]
