In the mood for a special holiday treat? One that’s not only delicious but also healthy?

Taco Soup

Love tacos but don’t have time to chop and dice and prepare all the toppings? Taco soup is an easy alternative with all the flavor and half the hassle. The soup is also more convenient for lunch at work without worrying about taco shells or tortillas getting soggy. While it may resemble a chili, Taco Soup is lighter with a distinctly different flavor, especially if you add the green chiles and green salsa. (The green […]

Balsamic Crock-Pot Chicken

Balsamic Crock-Pot Chicken is a go to favorite for us. There’s very little prep time. Only a few ingredients (most of which are always in the pantry) and it’s adaptable. It works with boneless or bone-in chicken breasts, thighs or drumsticks (whatever you have on hand). Plus it’s delicious! The combination of balsamic vinegar and chicken, adapted from Paleo Fresh, makes this especially healthy. Balsamic vinegar helps your body absorb the protein in the chicken. […]

Plus, it’s an easy to prepare meal on a busy day. We’ve written it with gluten-free, dairy-free and paleo options though it’s easy to modify for more traditional diets. It’s great for lunch, dinner or left-overs (though there won’t be many) on a cool fall day! […]
