Baked Spring Rolls

It has been far too long since I have spent some time creating something in the kitchen to share here with you.  The last few weeks I have been on a HUGE veggie diet eating binge, I just can’t get enough of them lately.  The latest craving as of current is the bean sprout.  I love them.  I was in the market with the hubby last week and a bam out of no where, I shouted across the produce aisle “spring rolls”!  “I want some veggie spring rolls, let’s make them”. As usual, he shook his head and agreed while smiling at the same time.  I am sure my hubby could not wait to have a plate of spring rolls for dinner. ♥ We grabbed up every vegetable I was in the mood for and went home to start cooking.  The recipe is awesome, super healthy, very clean and they…  Read More…

Southwestern Veggie Soup

I had a roasted chicken sitting in the fridge from a few nights ago and normally I would have the time to take the carcass and cook it all day to make my own broth and soup stock.  Today’s recipe was used with this left over chicken, only not the broth, but the actual meat of the chicken. Southwestern Veggie Soup – Fitnessmomwinecountry style Ingredients… Shredded chicken breast Avoccado Cilantro Yellow Onion Corn Black Beans Red Bell Pepper Bacon {optional} Red Potato Mushrooms Green Onion Lemon OR Lime Veggie Broth OR Chicken Broth {low sodium} Cut and chop all ingredients, sautee and simmer in the broth.  Add a dash of sea salt and fresh ground pepper {heavy on the pepper if you are like me}.

Chocolate Banana Bites

So with Spring in full mode and the end of the school year approaching quickly {May 30th for us}, I have been brainstorming and searching around for some super quick, healthy and fun snacks and treat for the kids {okay, who I am I kidding, myself also}.  I happen to stumble upon this great banana treat from Pop Sugar and thought two things…..WOW, those look so pretty and how cool what a great idea.  Well we have bananas in the house ALL the time and are adding them to smoothies, packing them in the backpack for a hike, just grabbing them for a quick snack, so why not try these cute creations? I followed the recipe given in the Pop Sugar link, with a few changes and here is as follows: 5 medium ripe bananas 1 tbsp. all natural creamy peanut butter 2 oz. nonfat vanilla Greek yogurt My version Fage…  Read More…

Greek Yogurt Parfait Made Easy

You don’t have time to create an entire Parfait?  This is an super easy and quick recipe close enough to it. Plain Greek Yogurt Fresh Strawberries {any berries can do, I happen to have these here} PB2 {Powdered Peanut Butter} Chia Seeds Cinnamon Banana I only use plain Greek yogurt in the house {unless it is for the kids,they can use the extra fat and calories} I don’t want the high sugar count for myself so I check labels and plain Greek is about the lowest you can find.  This had 11 grams per 8 oz serving {I used less than that} and my PB2 has 1 gram sugar per 2 tblspoons. Seriously, this is so easy.
