Hi, friends! I hope you had a lovely weekend! I heard a rumor that you guys want to see more “real life” meals – not necessarily pretty, curated ones, but ones that a regular person throws together. I mean, sometimes we just want to EAT, and it doesn’t need to be a whole production to cook an amazing meal and then plate it perfectly. Am I right? Let’s call them “real life” throw-together meals, shall…

21 (More) Throw-Together Meals When I think about how I cook from week-to-week, it’s really basic and definitely not fancy like what you might see on recipe website or social media. Maybe I’ll make one new recipe each week, but, for the most part, I’m mostly cooking family favorites and simple throw-together meals. And, truthfully, most of which aren’t even “official” recipes. Even still, they are nutritious, delicious, and meals that we make again and again. Back in…

33 Healthy Throw-Together Meals When I think about how I cook from week-to-week, it’s really basic and definitely not fancy like what you might see on social media. Maybe I’ll make one new recipe each week, but, for the most part, I’m mostly cooking family favorites and simple throw-together meals. And, truthfully, most of which aren’t even “official” recipes, but they’re still nutritious and delicious! 🙂 I personally love to switch up our meals from week-to-week, but I…

Hi, friends! I wanted to show you guys another favorite throw-together meal. This one I call a “meal prep salsa cauliflower rice bowl.” It’s just 4 ingredients, nutritious, delicious, and super simple to make! 🙂 Really, I think you’ll want to add this meal to your regular rotation! 🙂 So, the first ingredient in this meal prep salsa cauliflower rice bowl is cauliflower rice – you can use fresh or frozen. I typically use frozen just for…

Some of the biggest challenges that our nutrition clients face: not having enough time to prepare healthy food, not knowing what to cook, and sometimes just not having the energy to do it. I actually had a client recently ask me: “How do you overcome just not really wanting to cook?” Oh, yes, I’ve totally been there. Not everyone loves cooking, but they still want to eat healthy meals. I personally love the idea of “recipes” with…

You guys know I’m all about easy, macro-friendly recipes, especially if I can prep them ahead of time. Sunday is typically my food prep day in the kitchen, so the more meal prep ideas I have, the better! I really love starting the week with some of my favorite recipes at least semi-prepped, so dinnertime doesn’t feel as daunting, especially mid-week when I’m just not in the mood to cook. I sometimes lose my cooking…

You guys know that I am a BIG FAN of meals with simple ingredients, especially if I can just pour them all into my Instant Pot. This recipe for Instant Pot BBQ Lentils only calls for 3 main ingredients, and it couldn’t be easier to make. If you follow a vegetarian or vegan diet, this recipe is definitely for you! It’s so tasty, satisfying, and makes great leftovers! Feel free to use whatever lentils you…

Hi, guys! Here’s another edition of our “Quinn and Mumma” days. It was your pretty standard morning of adventures, but this post concludes with an easy and delicious weeknight recipe. It’s actually an old school CNC recipe that’s been revived since it’s such a simple, nutritious, and quick dinner to throw together on busy night – or, hey, just any night when you DO NOT feel like cooking. Basically, you should add this recipe to…

Happy Meal Prep Sunday! 🙂 You guys know I love a good food prep day – and, recently, Mal and I have started to eat a lot more vegetarian-ish. Obviously, we have no intention of giving up meat anytime soon, but we’ve talked a lot about the benefits of a more plant-based diet for our health, environment, and wallets, so we’re giving it a try. I’ll chat more about our decision in the coming weeks…

Hi, guys! School is back in session this week, and I’m a little on the fence how I feel about it. Obviously, there are pros and cons to all seasons, so looking at the bright side, I actually love settling back into more of a routine. Summer is SO FUN, but all of the travel and adventures definitely had an impact on my normal eats and exercise. It’s time to get back to some sort…

Hi, guys! I’m always looking for quick and easy recipes that taste as delicious as they sound! I recently came across Skinnytaste’s Cheesy Turkey Meatloaf, which immediately caught my attention. I mean, doesn’t that just sound amazing? Honestly, the recipe looked pretty fancy too. Did I really have time for that on a weeknight? It seemed like a lot of steps, and I knew I could simplify it. Since I had all the ingredients, I did…

Hi, friends! I have a potential new favorite recipe in your household: One-Pan Chicken Taco Skillet! It only calls for 5 ingredients (many of which you probably already have in your kitchen), and it’s guaranteed to be a crowd-pleaser! This meal comes together in no time, thanks to a pound of quick-cooking ground chicken and some frozen veggies. (Ground turkey or lean ground beef would work too.) The addition of salsa and taco seasoning adds…

Guys, I have your new favorite, go-to recipe for your weekly meal prep day. Introducing: Instant Pot Lemon Artichoke Shredded Chicken! And, I swear, cooking chicken doesn’t get much easier than this! I love having a versatile source of protein in the refrigerator at all times, especially during a busy week, so I can just grab-and-go when it comes to putting together quickie lunches and effortless dinners. This recipe for Instant Pot Lemon Artichoke Shredded Chicken only…

I’m still on a seriously blue cheese kick over here! I just can’t get enough of it lately. And when combined with buffalo sauce, it’s the greatest flavor combination ever. My taste buds get all amped up! Can taste buds get amped up? Maybe? Probably? Ya, let’s go with it. (Side note: Have you ever tried blue cheese with honey? OMGGG. It’s also an incredible flavor combination. Try it if you haven’t!) We’re also loving Banza pasta…

This recipe for One-Pan BBQ Chicken has been on repeat lately. Our DTFN clients love it too because it’s just so stinkin’ quick and easy! Seriously, I’ve made a lot of simple recipes over the years, but this one has to be one of the easiest and most delicious yet! I know a lot of recipes claim to be super easy, but then they end up taking too long with all of the prepping and chopping. This One-Pan…
