No Noodle Lasagna Stacks

I love pasta. That has probably been the hardest thing I had to admit when I started tracking my macros and trying to stay within certain limits. I loved pasta so much that I was eating WAY too many grams of carbohydrates per day. But giving up pasta doesn’t mean I have to give up…

Egg Souffle…sort of

Three square meals a day is what you need, right? We have all heard recently about the benefits of eating 4-5 smaller meals per day, but where did the idea of three square meals come from? The Romans didn’t eat three meals. In fact, they usually ate only one large meal around what we call…

Low Carb Breakfast Pizza

I have been on a spaghetti squash crust kick lately. I think it is because it is so simple to use and works with almost any dish. It doesn’t have a strong flavor and, depending on how you cook it, will either completely disappear into the dish or adds a nice texture like al dente…

Parmesan Garlic Zoodles

When you are macro counting, you become hyper aware of carbohydrates. And I have come to the realization they are EVERYWHERE! So that means you do end up with restrictions on the types of foods you can and cannot eat if you want to stay full all day. So, by personal choice, I said goodbye…

Strawberry Rhubarb Sauce

In my post about homemade applesauce, I mentioned rhubarb sauce and how amazing it was. That made me start to crave it so much that I had to make a small batch last weekend. Growing up, my parents had (and still have) two huge rhubarb plants in their backyard that yielded so much rhubarb, we…

Eggs in Spicy Tomato Sauce

My life’s goal is to open my own Bed and Breakfast in the mountains.¬†Because of this, whenever I travel, I try to find a quaint little B&B to stay at. In fact, staying at B&Bs is where I found my love for several different breakfast dishes that are now part of my regular meal rotations….

Summer Vegetable Quiche

Fresh is always best in my opinion. And when you can get your vegetables from your local farmer’s market or a local farm, even better! Sourcing your food from local farms is a great way not only to support the local economy but it also is a lot healthier for your family and the environment. …

Homemade Applesauce

Growing up, my babysitter always served us homemade applesauce and rhubarb sauce. She would make huge batches of both, put them in large mason jars, and store them in freezers in her garage. If you were lucky, you got to be the one she asked to go into the garage (which was off-limits to the…

Tomato Frittata 

Have I mentioned that I love breakfast? There is something about waking up in the morning and eating a nice, yummy hot egg dish and a steaming cup of coffee on the side. Yummy! Eggs get a lot of flack for being high in cholesterol and for the longest time we were told that we…

Homemade Marinara Sauce

There has been a lot of talk lately about how much added sugar is in everything. And it is true! Look at the food labels on almost all of your favorite foods. Corn Syrup, High Fructose Syrup, Sugar…the list goes on and on and while there is nothing wrong with a little bit of sweet…
