Morning Oatmeal Muffins (Gluten & Dairy Free)

Muffins I feel like are basically cupcakes without frosting, which is probably why I love them. I have nothing against cupcakes once in a while but I’m certainly not looking to feed them to my child for breakfast on a regular basis. I know kids love muffins so I was hoping to find a recipe that […]

Meatballs and mini meatloaf are a staple in my household. You take a lean ground up meat, add some spices and veggies and in 15-20 minutes you’ve got a delicious dish perfect for dinner, meal prepping or throwing on a power bowl. I’m a huge fan of this turkey meatloaf from Jamie Eason and the mini buffalo chicken meatloaf recipe from PaleOMG. […]

WATCH: Lunch all week for $20 in under 20 minutes

As a work from home mom, which by the way is a term I’ve been hearing a lot lately, I don’t have time to go out and grab lunch and making it from scratch each day feels like a huge waste of time. I also don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen on the […]

Chopped Greek Salad for the Beach

I’m on vacation this week and have a guest post for you guys from Ally Milligan, a Boston-based multimedia producer and salad-obsessive at Loveleaf Co., a site encouraging health and mindfulness through the simple habit of eating one salad a day. See how easy it is to incorporate this healthy practice into your life by […]

The Body Nourishing Mama Smoothie

I’m lucky that I enjoy how most healthy foods taste but there are a few that I detest. One of them is turmeric. Unfortunately for me, it is traditionally used by breastfeeding women. One of my favorite ways to mask the flavor of turmeric is in smoothies. I created this smoothie recipe to help nourish […]

This Week In Dinners So Far…

This week, we ordered dinner from Just Add Cooking. I chose a chicken, fish and vegetarian option. The vegetarian option was actually a soup created by Boston chef Jeremy Sewall, who owns two of my favorite restaurants in the city, Row 24 and Island Creek Oyster Bar. He has another recipe featured for this week’s […]

Vegan Salted Caramel Smoothie Recipe

I was always a caramel person over hot fudge. When salted caramel desserts became a thing, I was obsessed with all of them. Why is it that adding just a little bit of salt made caramel so much cooler? I’m not sure why I waited so long to make a healthy salted caramel treat but […]

5 Surprising Ways To Nutritiously Satisfy A Sweet Tooth After Dinner

I’ve always had a sweet tooth but I believe I’ve trained myself to want something sweet after I eat a meal. I wish I hadn’t and I’ve tried too many times to count to train myself to NOT want sugar after dinner but it’s easier said than done. Instead, I’ve found surprisingly healthy ways to […]

Half Marathon Training Update + My Long Run Breakfast Recipe Video

Last week, I went to two different classes that had child care for little ones like Tommy. It was awesome but that means, I wasn’t running. Since I either need to wake up before Nick goes to work (and pump before I leave) and run in the dark or go after work when it’s time […]

New England Sweet & Spicy Trail Mix with Harvest Snaps

There are so many movies I want to see thanks to the Oscars! Luckily for my sake, most are going to be out on DVD or On Demand pretty soon. My chances of getting to a movie theater are slim to none these days. Included on my short list are Joy, The Big Short, Concussion, […]
