Silk Collage

I need protein at every meal, which I learned the hard way. Yes, there was a time (pre-nutrition degree) where I would just eat a plain “fat free” bagel for breakfast or some other starch and wonder why I was so hungry an hour later. Then I learned about nutrition and it all made sense….

As I sit here writing this, it’s 55 degrees and sunny out. I am itching to get outside but have too much to do inside. Don’t you hate that? We have the perfect little library in our neighborhood. It’s small, cozy, clean and the kids beg to go there every week. Since it’s so close…

Fire-Roasted Tomato Vegetable Soup

SimpleVegSoup-1-4

You know those times when you have NO food in the house or at least so it seems. You just stand there staring in the pantry, opening and closing the refrigerator and freezer door waiting for something to jump out at you. And nothing really does, because you don’t have time to defrost the meat,…

Hello and Happy Friday! I love going to others peoples’ houses for dinner because you just never know when you’ll be introduced to something that you wouldn’t have thought of otherwise.

Black Bean and Veggie Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

StuffedSpagSquash-3

Potty training. That basically sums up our weekend. This is my third kiddo going through potty training and I’ll have to say it is going really well! We talked about it with him for several weeks before and told him when he turned 3, we wouldn’t be using diapers anymore. I think all that preparation paid off,…

Carrot Soup {Vegan, Gluten Free}

CarrotSoup-1+

Sometimes eating healthy food that you know is good for you makes it taste even better. I kind of feel that way about this soup. I mean it’s not a cheeseburger, but it makes me feel good and healthy. That’s pretty important in my opinion! I get carrots in my CSA box every week. Giant…

One of my favorite ways to cook with tofu is this tofu scramble. I started making it years ago when I did my vegan experiment and now, though not vegan, enjoy making it on a regular basis. It doesn’t replace my eggs, it’s just something different and it’s awesome. Tofu, a great protein source for both…
