Bacon Ranch Chicken Salad

I have found that one of the best ways to stick to eating real, whole foods is a crazy delicious sauce. Some people use ketchup, others are impossibly addicted to hot sauce. Whatever your preference, if dousing your broccoli in butter is going make you more likely to eat your veggies, then I say go for…

Lemon Zucchini Bread

Mayan Chocolate Chia Pudding

Anyone remember my Mayan Chocolate Ice Cream? I sure do. It was incredible. So I figured the same yum-factor would apply to chia pudding. SPOILER ALERT: I was right.

Upgrade Your Salad

Sometimes it just takes a little creativity to move your salad from lame to luscious. Today’s quick tip involves fancifying your run of the mill tomato/cucumber/lettuce/chicken salad. The problem. Cobb Salads. Universally loved because of all the components especially the BACON! (Duh) But let’s be honest, a Cobb Salad usually turns into a game of…

Turkey Jerky

I’m HUNGRY! What do I eat? No chips, no bean dip, no sandwiches, no quesadillas, no hummus! Does this sound familiar? When starting out a clean eating lifestyle, sometimes it seems as though there are very few options in the way of clean, fast, easy snack foods. I mean, who has time to steam a…
