Healthy Turkey Chili Recipe

This year in Colorado, it snowed on October 9th. You read that right. 9 days into October (a clearly “fall” month), winter jumped the gun and showed its face. The only thing that has made it bearable is this chili. It is delicious, the right amount of spicy, and perfect for a night in watching […]


Blueberry Lemon Poppy Seed Pancakes

Ever since we have started eating clean, pancakes and waffles have been a sad casualty. I know there are a bunch of super healthy pancakes that are made of just bananas, egg, and cinnamon or some variation of that. We tried those and to be honest they weren’t a worthwhile substitute for us. The texture […]


Cinnamon Nutella Oatmeal Recipe

In our house, we have rediscovered Nutella. Rediscovered? Where did it go? Well, in the interest of healthy eating we don’t stock Nutella or similar addicting treats. However, recently we have found that, in moderation, we are able to have Nutella here and there. So now we have Nutella in the pantry and I want […]


Easy Protein Oatmeal

This year we have done two rounds of the Fast Metabolism eating program by Haylie Pomroy. I don’t like to call it a diet because the definition of diet is “a special course of food to which one restricts oneself, either to lose weight or for medical reasons.” We did this eating program to re-set […]


Sausage and Kale Brown Rice Pasta

Colorado has finally started to feel like fall. This means that the cubbies in the gym, which over the summer contain only keys, are now stuffed with coats and sweats. Fall in Colorado is an exercise in managing expectations. Sometimes, fall is long and beautiful with perfect cool weather. Sometimes, the weather skips straight from summer […]


Healthy Sweet Potato Meatloaf Recipe

I think we have already discussed our love for sweet potatoes. They are considered a superfood (score!) and are so versatile! Even as it gets closer to Spring, I still fire up my oven because I find that casseroles and such are easier to pack as a lunch. Once summer rolls around, it will be […]


Sweet Potato Hash Recipe

Sweet potatoes…they make me think of fall, brown sugar, Thanksgiving, and just plain deliciousness. When I learned that sweet potatoes are good for you- I was absolutely ecstatic. Since, they have always been one of Spencer’s favorite foods (with all the brown sugar and marshmallows on top of course), we try and mix them in […]


Cookies and Cream Blended Protein Shake Recipe

Protein, protein, protein. The lifeblood, the muscle-maker, the “why-does-this-taste-so-grainy” powder. As I discussed in a previous blog, it took me a long time to get on the protein train. Not the eating meat, beans, and other natural sources of protein train but the protein bars and especially the protein powder train. Being a female and […]


Healthy Pizza Recipe

Pizza is something that I always miss as I develop a fit and healthy lifestyle. And honestly, I am pretty sure most people would agree with that. So, I have been trying to find a quick and easy healthy pizza recipe. I’m pretty sure I did it! This pizza recipe isn’t going to give you […]


Healthy Turkey Burger Recipe: A Summertime Regular

Summertime grilling is my absolute favorite. The evening weather is nice and there is just something about cooking outside while the sun is still shining. Turkey burgers are a great option for the summer grilling season! Ground turkey is less expensive than chicken, still high in protein, and delicious paired with a summer salad. My issue […]
