My Personal Transformation Tuesday!

July 30, 2013

Last week during a very uneventful evening, I took a stroll through some older Facebook pictures of friends and came across pictures from a wedding I was in two years ago. The wedding, the bride, and the day were beautiful, but I was astounded by what I had looked like. I knew I was heavier then, but hadn't really put it into perspective until now.

Spicy Oven 'Fried' Chicken

July 16, 2013


Fried crispy, salty, yummy, rich fried chicken. Fried chicken; delicious on the tongue, not so attractive on the thighs.  My fix is a flavor packed oven ‘fried’ version using oat flour as the breading. 


Pancetta and Melon Pasta

July 12, 2013

I am not a regular pasta eater. I prefer lighter fare of veggies, fruit, and a little protein. BUT if I am in the mood for some filling, comforting pasta, I always turn to this recipe.  The pancetta is so salty and flavorful and the melon brings a sweet freshness to the dish. Finished off with a little heat from the chili flakes, this dish is the perfect comfort food.


Homemade Vitamin Water: Basil and Lemon Infusion

July 11, 2013

I drink a lot of water. A lot of water. I love the crisp taste of ice water and the mellowing of warm lemon water.  Mixing up flavors in water is a great way to make your recommended daily intake go quicker and more fun! Adding in basil and lemon will give your water antioxidants, aid in digestion, and give skin a dewy glow.


Soy Lime Chicken Skewers

July 09, 2013

What is better than meat on a stick? If you answered nothing, you are correct.  Chicken skewers are fun and versatile. You can combine all your favorite flavors for never ending kabob enjoyment!

Lentil Stuffed Peppers

July 08, 2013

I am in love with lentils. I am always looking for new ways to use these super little beans. Their peppery flavor makes them one of my favorite foods and, added bonus, they are packed with protein and fiber.  Their versatility lends them easily to multiple fun recipes.
