Lemon Chicken Quinoa Vegetable Soup

I know I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again….I can’t get enough soup when it’s chilly outside.  I’m talking 75 degrees in AZ, ha!  I really enjoy soup all year round, but there’s something so comforting about enjoying a nice bowl in the winter months.

To simplify, I used the chunk canned chicken from Costco and some leftover quinoa I had in the refrigerator.  A rotisserie chicken would be great for this soup too.  It took no time at all to prepare.  Hearty and comforting, hope you enjoy this healthy new soup recipe!

My Healthier Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies make the perfect afternoon snack with less guilt than your typical cookie!

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.

Jan 12, 2015 | Dinner, Skinny Palate | Tags: , , , ,

My Spicy Honey Chicken Vegetable Rice Bowls are perfect for preparing ahead for lunch and dinners to grab in the fridge when you need them!

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.
