Chicken Sofrito – Whole 30 Approved

About 2 weeks ago my husband came home with a recipe from work that he wanted to make for our January Whole 30.  I was all for it since it was one less thing I had to make.

I gave him some of the chicken that I was planning to use for something else and we swapped it out for this.  The marinade we used is called a sofrito (Caribbean and Latin American sauce of tomatoes, onions, peppers, garlic, and herbs). Continue reading

Turkey Meatloaf – Recipe – Whole 30 Approved

Throughout my Whole 30 journey I made a lot of meat balls either out of chicken or turkey.  They were an easy item and already portioned.  I knew exactly how many to eat to get the correct amount of protein.  I decided to change it up a bit once I finished because we needed something different so I went with a meatloaf.

This came out so good and juicy.  The turkey wasn’t dry at all.  I can’t wait for you to try this one out.  I know you will love it as much as I did. Continue reading

Roasted Root Vegetables – Recipe

I am a summer obsessed girl.  I love all things summer.  The sun.  The heat.  The pool.  Having BBQs.  Fun outdoor adventures.  The beach and everything in between.

That being said I am all about the fall because of the delicious scents and foods that appear in the stores during that time of year.  This past weekend I went to buy new hand soap at Bath & Body Works and of course the entire bag was filled with fall scents!

When I decided last week I was going to make this dish it made me slightly sad because it screams fall, changing leaves, cooler temperatures, and shorter days.  I did have the intentions to make it because I wanted to use up some straggling ingredients in the kitchen.  Continue reading

Spaghetti Squash Casserole – Whole 30

I made this recipe for the first time the week after I finished my Whole 30.  I didn’t get to take many pics the way I had hoped so I decided to make it again (a little different – and forgetting 1 ingredient but still tasting amazing!).  I wanted to be able to share its awesomeness with you.  When talking to others, some doing a W30 and some not, I told them about this recipe and how I needed to share so they could try it out.  It is fairly easy to make but takes a little bit of time and patience.  If you have the time to make it, do it!  You can even do it over a 2 day period if you needed.

Delicious Turkey Meatballs

If you have been following me on Instagram you know that next Monday I start the Whole30 diet, or better yet, lifestyle.  This diet eliminates many of the foods I have been eating a lot of over the past few years while living a pescetarian lifestyle.  In order to complete the Whole30 to the full extent I need to reintroduce meat to my diet.  Since we were away a few weeks ago on our honeymoon I began experimenting mostly while we were in Greece (our hotel had a breakfast and dinner buffet so I could try a little bit of what I wanted).  I felt perfectly fine from everything I ate and was really happy about that.

Perfect Fit Almond Cacao Raisin Bites

Last Thursday evening I had the honor of once again meeting the two ladies who inspire me every single day to wake up, workout, and make me want to be a better person.  For those who aren’t sure who I am talking about that would be Karena & Katrina from Tone It Up.

*I did not have a post up last week due to family things going on.  I am still going to be sticking to at least once a week (this week I will shoot for 2 to make up for missing!)

Perfect Fit Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Crunch Bites

Today I got cooking in the kitchen and knew that I wanted to come up with something tasty to give my workouts some extra fuel this week until I can find a new pre-workout in stores since I am almost out of my BeFit.  After finishing my meals for the week I looked at a few different recipes but didn’t see anything I REALLY wanted to make or didn’t have all the ingredients.
