I love making soup in the winter…well actually all year long My soup is ready from start to finish in about 10 minutes.
The ultimate creamy tomato soup without the guilt. I used Greek Yogurt today for a light and fabulous soup. I topped each bowl of soup with a scoop of a simple cheesy orzo (don’t worry, it’s just a touch of cheese). Adds great texture to the soup.
Happy MLK Day! I completely forgot that the kids were out of school until late last night! Glad I didn’t take them to school
I am on a slow cooker roll lately. I am breaking it out almost every weekend and loving it. My Slow Cooker Salsa Verde Beef for Tacos has a whole 3 ingredients and seriously has the BEST flavor. Everyone who has had these can’t wait to get the recipe.

The term “healthier” has different definitions to different people, agreed?
I substituted coconut oil for butter and used Gold Medal Flour’s white whole wheat flour therefore I am calling these my “healthier” cookie If you were to ask the trainers on Biggest Loser, I am sure they would disagree with me, because there is still sugar and chocolate included, lol! Baby steps.

Finally!!! Finally, we made a kale salad. It’s funny, because we love eating kale salad when we go out to dinner, so I’m not sure why we haven’t posted one on Picky Palate yet.

I’m having so much fun creating healthier recipe options for you this month. Trust me, I’m not eating a perfect diet, but it’s certainly nice to have recipes that are healthy and full of great flavor.
The crunch of the cucumbers with the salty bites of kalamata olives are my favorite part of this salad along with the yogurt based feta dressing.
Enjoy this crisp, zesty salad!

So excited to share some “healthier” recipes with you this month. My husband and I teamed up and developed this creamy dreamy chicken salad packed with all kinds of goodness. I’m not going on any crazy diets for my New Years resolutions, but healthier lunch options coupled with gym attendance produces better results
Warm up this winter with a nice big bowl of my Hearty Roasted Vegetable Beef Stew! This is a great add to your list of slow cooker recipes.
It’s 2014 and the kids are back in school today, yippee!!

I am focusing on hitting the gym everyday with my husband first thing in the mornings. I am not cutting anything out of my diet because that makes me a very grumpy human …
