For the last couple weeks I’ve been perfecting this “healthier” chocolate chip cookie. I’ve been looking for just the right texture but less of the “bad stuff” in everyday cookies that I love so much.
After tweaking my recipe a half dozen times I finally got it right! Buttery crisp around the edges yet soft and fabulous in the center.

I shared this picture of Pax helping me make this banana bread on Instagram the other night and got quite a few requests to share the recipe. I wasn’t planning on it, but what the heck, here ya go! I don’t have a ton of photos for it, but trust me, it’s a killer recipe! Enjoy!
My Teriyaki Chicken Quinoa Power Bowl is the perfect weekday lunch or dinner for feeling great!
I love having new simple lunch and dinner ideas that are not only beautiful but completely delicious as well. This power packed bowl does not disappoint! I’ve packed it with so many of my favorite healthy ingredients together and drizzle just a touch of teriyaki sauce. This meal will keep you going for hours. Simple and healthy, love it!

My husband and I love getting in the kitchen and preparing meals like this one in advance so we have healthy lunch and or dinner options in the refrigerator ready for heating up.
I can’t tell you how nice it is to just grab the container, heat it up and have a quick healthy meal in minutes.
One of my favorites is this spicy honey chicken with roasted vegetables and brown rice. It is so simple, but very flavorful and filling.
Give yourself a good hour and a half or so and you’ll have lots of food prepared for the week. Be sure to check out my Grilled Chicken Veggie Bowls too.
Hope you enjoy!

How’s everyone doing with their New Year’s Resolutions?! It’s always nice to start the New Year off right with some healthier recipe options. I’m all about moderation and balance. I don’t like to cut anything completely out of my diet because it seems that it’s those things I want the most. My goals this year are focusing on eating more greens, fruits and grains. I’m also starting yoga again this year! Before we moved from California I was practicing at a studio I loved almost everyday. I miss it so much. Looking forward to more of that goodness in my life. Those are just a few of my goals, looking forward to making more throughout the year.

Happy New Year everyone! It was so nice to take a little time off the past few weeks for Christmas break with my family. It’s also nice being back in the kitchen creating some “healthier” recipes for you this month! Notice I said “healthier.” I am certainly not a health food blogger, but I am looking forward to some better options and starting this new year off right!
