Here’s a little inspiration for a 15 minute “throw together” option. Just make sure you have a nice balance of the following: Protein, veg, healthy fat, carb and some spice. Salads or “power bowls” are all the rage and perfect excuse to combine and use up left overs.
This is my version of Indian Garam Masala in the most simplified way possible. If your trying to warm your soul (or clear your sinuses) on this cold winter day than this is the recipe for you!
It’s tradition in the Nelson household to start the carbs early on holiday mornings. For Thanksgiving it’s always pumpkin waffles. However, by the time Christmas rolls around, we are usually craving them all over again. In my mind, the perfect holiday breakfast includes all the delicious flavor of pumpkin pie in waffle form.
The other night my friend called last minute to gather a group to grill. I’m 50-50 when it comes to handling last minute plans… I like to consider myself super spontaneous, but I really value prep time. Anyways, I offered to bring a summery side dish – thinking I could whip up a healthy potato salad […]
My favorite part of the day is when the sun has just come up and the day is full of promises. My typically morning starts with a run followed by my favorite meal of the day… Oh how I live for breakfast. If cheesy hot chocolate, fresh yucca rolls, and cinnamon pastries are your thing, […]

[…]
My sister Alli has a way with animals. I wouldn’t go so far as to say she’s a horse whisper – anyone that knows her knows she’s been bucked, thrown, broken a foot, dislocated a shoulder, suffered a concussion and had to undergo wrist surgery due to miscommunication with these four-legged friends. I guess that’s […]
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Who knew? That’s why I spent my entire rainy Sunday morning (aside from a trip down to Starbucks while the dough was rising) perfecting this English muffin recipe. Lucky for you, I made all the baking mistakes in my four trial runs so it should be […]
This weekend is the official start of summer. Summertime makes me so happy… longer days, cocktails on porches, sandals, and backyard BBQs. In this case, a BYOA (bring your own app) barbecue. My sweet friend and her husband are hosting a party to show off their new place and grilling the meat, while the guests […]
