Oh Kale Yeah! My Spicy Almond Butter Kale Salad is on fire and not because of the chili garlic sauce, but because of the amazing benefits! A single cup of raw kale contains so many health boosters. Kale is filled with Vitamin A, Vitamin K, Vitamin C, and is titled one of the healthiest foods in the world….
If you’ve been eating the same PB&J sandwich since you were 4 years old, or if you’re tired of the usual turkey & cheese on wheat- take a shot at my favorite lunch time recipe– a turkey, cucumber, & avocado Sandwich. The cucumber in this sandwich is refreshing as the hummus is delicious, it’s the perfect combination to fuel your day!
Do you ever wonder why so many movies and T.V. shows have scenes where characters are eating Chinese takeout??? Whether it’s eating alone while coping with a breakup or indulging cross legged on the floor in an empty home, Chinese food is always there!
It’s a go-to comfort food which is probably why we all love it. Of course, like many of the good things in life, Chinese food is deep fried and drenched in sauce. This is what led me on my journey to recreate a delicious Chinese dish without all the calories. This orange chicken is a TEN, and can be made in 20 minutes, using one pan!
I found this Cashew Zoodles recipe in the Whole30 cook book and then modified it to make it my own. If you’re not into zoodles, I still recommend making this sauce because it’s amazing. I may or may not have been eating it by the spoonful… I loved it so much that I made it again the next day and used it as salad dressing over my spinach and kale salad. Even Erik loved it, so that’s a plus. Did I mention its Whole30 and Paleo approved with no added sugar?
2017 is looking good for the Swinton’s! We have a handful of trips to look forward too, including our honeymoon! And because a lot of bathing suits are in our future, I’ve been a little more disciplined in the kitchen; filling our meals with more veggies and cutting back on dairy and processed foods.
Since this healthy mindset has kicked in, I’ve been searching for a healthy alternative to the buffalo chicken dip my husband loves so much. The one that calls for an entire package of cream cheese and a cup of cheddar cheese. These buffalo chicken meatballs are super tasty and carry the heat you can find in a hot wings or buffalo dip. They’re the perfect super bowl snack!
Almond crusted chicken fingers are a healthy alternative to the childish chicken fingers and grilled cheese I still crave.
I’ve hit the age where it’s unacceptable to order chicken fingers at a restaurant without being accompanied by a child. I’ve also hit the age where my body doesn’t appreciate fried foods. Luckily, I’ve come up with the adult version of chicken fingers that are equally as delicious as those childhood tenders. Did I mention they’re Whole30 and Paleo compliant too?
