Sheet Pan Shrimp Fajitas

It is no secret that Taco Tuesday is my favorite day of the week. Maybe because I was born on Cinco de Mayo – who knows but I love it.  In my practice, I hear a lot about how people do not have time to cook. Therefore, they are finding all the excuses in the world to grab take out, avoid eating dinner or making something that’s easy to them but is 99.9% of the time heavy carbohydrate meals. In my world, there are no excuses because this meal took me 30 minutes from start to finish, including clean up. 30 minutes is the same amount of time you’ll spend reviewing a menu, picking up take out, driving to and from locations, boil hot water and cooking pasta, etc.  The other great part about this meal, is it provided 4 meals.This meal is great for any busy individual and families! See how easy this was to make below.

Breakfast Frittata

This may not be the best food photo I’ve taken, but it is certainly just as tasty as the rest of the recipes on this blog!  Lately my schedule has been crazy. A lot of really early mornings and simply not enough time in the day (as I’m sure most of you can relate.).  BUT, just because I am busy does not mean my nutrition fails.-Failure in my world is never an option.  Continue reading

Stuffed Acorn Squash

Mmmmm, Thanksgiving in the belly of a squash! I remember as a kid my Mom would make acorn squash but I would not touch it. The look and texture of it just did not look appealing to me. I remember her also always commenting “how do you not like this, it’s sooooo delicious”.  Well, as I grew older my taste buds changed a LOT and I now share the same emotion towards acorn squash that she did.  This recipe has simple ingredients, easy prep, easy clean up and a whole lot of flavor!  It’s a great meal to make in bulk for the family or even meal prep for a few meals.

Next time you are at the store, be sure to grab a squash or two and make this! I promise, you will not regret it! 🙂
