The Grown Up Smoothie

Everyone grows up eventually, with some sooner than others. However, has your smoothie grown up, or are you still making/drinking that smoothie from 6th grade?  Here is a great recipe that is for the older, health-conscious person who wants some serious vitamins and antioxidants.

The Pineapple, Orange, Granola, and Carrot Smoothie (bear with me) is full of Vitamin A and C, beta carotene, and powerful anti-oxidants, which supports heart health. It won't be quite as sweet as the Strawberry Banana smoothie at Jamba Juice, but it will fill you up and make you feel

Sweet Potato Gnocchi with Cream Sauce, Arugula and Toasted Pine Nuts

This is a great, hearty recipe that will make you hungry in a hurry!  The prep time can be a bit extensive because you are making the gnocchi from scratch. However, you can always take the easy way out...and just buy the gnocchi pre-made.

Here's a brief overview of a recipe from one of our favorite bloggers:  The Scrumptious Pumpkin.

Gnocchi is commonly made with white flour and potatoes and often cheese, so I’ve come up with a healthier

Skillet BBQ Chicken Pasta

Skillet BBQ Chicken Pasta

 

This recipe comes from our friend over at Chocolate Broccoli, and it looks incredible doesn’t it? Maybe try this next time you are feeling like barbeque.

 

This was one of those recipes that at first glance was almost too weird for me.  I mean, BBQ sauce is one of the greatest condiments ever developed- but on pasta?

I suppose I never eat my Mac & Cheese without BBQ sauce (this southern child has been practicing that since age 8,

Fresh Take on Rice - Risotto

RE-BLOG FROM:  Chocolate Broccoli

Again with the risottos.  Can I not get enough?  Not really.  It seems so fancy-like, but once you have down the science of it risotto can easily be added into your weeknight rotation.  Science seems like the wrong word to use.. because, really.. I am NO scientist and if you have had a conversation with me- you may be lucky enough to catch me speaking rather 'air-head-ish.  I have learned I need to process my words a little better than I do sometimes.

So, white

Gluten Free Chicken Parmesan Rollatini

Here is another recipe for our friend at Chocolate Broccoli – check her out!

Gluten Free.  Those two words make up such a simple phrase that packs a powerful punch in the food/diet/nutrition/weight loss world these days.  While it seems like such a trendy thing to do- gluten free is actually quite serious for some folks.. those folks with Celiac Disease.  Individuals with CD actually have a gluten intolerance and cannot have gluten containing foods.. if they do- aside from the severe GI issues that go along with it,

Winter Vegetable Pasta with White Wine and Parmesan

RE-BLOG FROM:  The Scrumptious Pumpkin

I could eat this pasta every day of the week. It’s so simple but such a delicious combination of flavors with the sweetness of the squash, the crisp kale, the hint of thyme and white wine, and the salty, cheesy Parmesan.I try to make one meatless meal a week – eating a diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables and low in processed and red meats is proven to help you maintain a healthy weight and lower your risk of heart disease, cancer,
