The Perfect Hard Boiled Egg

I remember how much trouble I used to have making the perfect hard boiled egg. To get it cooked all the way through was ALWAYS an issue.  The yolk would always be a bit raw and making egg salad would be half wasteful.

Before I continue I want to say

ALWAYS LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER!

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

Veggie Quinoa – Recipe

Having fun in the kitchen always keeps things exciting!  Looking through the fridge and pantry I decide to throw ingredients together.  Sometimes it is to finish something and other times it is to see how the flavors come out.

Today I decided to try quinoa for the first time since finishing the Whole 30.  The recipe is REALLY easy and SUPER tasty! 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.

Whole 30 – One Pot Chicken

When doing my Whole 30 research last month I asked around for different accounts and recipes that people liked so that I could create a list of what to make.  One friend suggested putting chicken breast in the crock pot.  This past weekend I did just that!  The recipe is so simple and it came out SO SO SO delicious!

This will make about 6-8 total servings if you follow exact. If not you will need to add more chicken to get what you need to satisfy your stomach

4 thick cut chicken breast – boneless skinless

1 onion sliced

Place all ingredients into the crock pot and cook for 8 hours on low.

Once done shred the chicken and eat over spaghetti squash with some tomato sauce.

Quinoa Crispies

I can say for certain that I was not always a fan of quinoa.  When I first tried it I could barely stomach it.  I looked around trying to figure out ways to make it taste better.  I looked for ways that I could not eat it.  Maybe find something else that was as good of a selection.  I found cooking it with a broth made it taste better but rarely do that anymore.  I did not find much that was healthier so that option was down the drain.

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.
