Cashew Chicken Veggie Stir Fry

I can't think of a time when I'm not craving the comfort of takeout food. I don't even have a particular cuisine that I'm devoted to or anything. Pretty much anything ethnic in nature hits the spot from Chinese stir fries, Vietnamese anything, to a little Indian Butter Chicken in moments of deepest comfort needs. The thing about takeout food ...

Homemade Pink Grapefruit Lip Balm

I love all things grapefruit, the taste... the smell... you name it! I ended up developing this lip balm out of necessity, you see I've gotten spoiled over the last few years with a local company that made the best grapefruit lip balm out of completely natural ingredients. However all of sudden I can't find it anywhere, so I did ...

Pink Grapefruit Green Smoothie

I have went through 30 pounds of grapefruit making this smoothie everyday for the last 2 weeks, it's really that good! Just like most of my green smoothies, this one came around by accident. I was getting low on my fruit supply, but wanted to stay committed to my resolution to have a green smoothie everyday in January. So I ...

Simple Roasted Sweet Potato Noodles

These simple sweet potato noodles have become a permanent fixture in our house for any meal. They're great paired with these Veggie Scrambled Eggs with Aged White Cheddar for breakfast, and they're one of my favorite lunches rewarmed with a spoonful of guacamole on top for a quick and easy meal. I also serve them with dinner in all sorts ...

A Traveling Guide to Springdale Utah

Springdale, Utah is the perfect basecamp for adventuring in Zion National Park. It's situated just outside the main entrance, and you can find everything you'll need during your stay in the park. I always love scoping out the towns nearest to national parks to get the lay of the land so to speak because you'll always need to restock supplies ...

Veggie Scrambled Eggs with Aged White Cheddar

I make some sort of veggie scrambled eggs every week because it's a quick and easy breakfast that's both filling and nutritious. Yet I never seem to write down the recipe for these creations, which is probably because I never measure, and I'm always using whatever I have on hand. But there are a few combinations we return to over ...

Healthy Chunky Monkey Ice Cream

A couple years ago when we started to get a little more serious about eating healthier, there was this popular idea floating around about making 'ice cream' out of frozen bananas. I was more than a little skeptical because ice cream is a food group unto itself in our family - it's serious business to say the least. For years ...

Zucchini Noodle Veggie Lo Mein

I'll be the first to admit that I've pretty much ignored Lo Mein most of my life. Of course it's because I always have a standing order of Kung Pao Chicken, which in my opinion has so much more to offer in the flavor department. But after remaking my long time favorite into a healthier version with this Kung Pao ...

Chocolate Covered Pomegranate Acai Bowls

For me, a sense of indulgence the key to healthy eating. Whenever I feel the least bit deprived or restricted, my mind goes into a state of constant want, and pretty soon it's bring on all the chocolate and cheese please (with no sense of moderation)! But... what if we could eat healthy and love it? Well that's a question ...
