Tis’ the season of calorie-conscious comfort food and tailgating for football and luckily, I picked up the perfect tool for both.

Wait! Don’t toss out that leftover chicken breast (that you refuse to eat because you’re sick and tired of it by the end of the week). Toss it in a salad, chop it up, then wrap it up! Remember, you should always adjust recipes like this one to compliment your goals and nutrition plan.

Despite the fact that it is fall, and that it was 50 degrees just a few days ago, today it is sunny, breezy and 80 degrees…and in my book, that’s the perfect weather to fire up the grill! I had some tuna steaks that I needed to cook up, so instead of making steaks, I decided
As we bid farewell to summer and welcome the cooler weather, I wanted to make one last burger while it’s still hot here in Texas. To boost the flavors, I added grilled shishito peppers. Now, between nopales and shishito peppers, it’s hard to determine which I love most; however, there’s something about shishito peppers that
Sometimes you need a recipe that is quick, easy, filling and nutritious. And you can pretty much never go wrong with TexMex when you’re hungry. So, why not take a heart healthier spin on a TexMex favorite – the quesadilla?! The good thing about quesadillas is that you can ALWAYS make them your own and make
Living in the south, chicken salad is a classic dish. No picnic or family gathering is complete without someone bringing a batch of “grandma’s chicken salad.” But I can guarantee that you’ve never had it like this before! A few weeks ago, I had this chicken salad in Traverse City, MI, home of the nation’s largest

Whoever said that eating healthy is wimpy is misinformed, or just can’t cook…eh, maybe it’s a little of both. Ha! But, no worries! Here’s an epic Bison-Bacon-Lettuce-Tomato burger that should remove all doubt. And the cool thing about burgers is that they are easy to customize to increase or decrease calories and protein to meet your needs. So,
This is a delicious after-school, after work or in-between meals snack! Filling, delicious and healthy. Combining different styles and cultures in meals is a great way to bring creativity to your diet. This is a fusion dish where Mediterranean-inspired cuisine (hummus) meets Latin-cuisine (quesadilla) – flavor overload.
Eh, why not?! I had some leftover tuna from my article & video on creative ways to use tuna, so I put together this delicious low-carb slider in about 20 minutes. Try it out – you may fall in love with tuna all over again.
Ever caught yourself randomly dreaming or thinking of a delicious meal you’ve had before? Well, that was me the other night while I was up working late on a project. And what was on my mind? A delicious, flavorful gyro that I had eaten a few months ago when I was in NYC. The image was so
No boring sandwiches or wraps. Ever. Instead of shoveling out $9 for a wrap at lunch, just make your own. Less than half the cost and likely twice the protein! Plus, you know exactly what you are putting in to your body.
One of my favorite salads that I made in 2013 was a chicken avocado salad. It really went well with just about anything- wheat bread, rice cakes, pita bread, etc. It’s quick, delicious, filling and nutritious! Give it a try and make it your own!
