I just made THE most delicious dinner I have arguably ever made. I went so rogue on the original recipe that I’ve struggled to come up with a name for it, but my husband recommended “Mishmash Kickass” or more specifically, “Awesome. Just Call It Awesome.” I...

Anyone else the parent of a super picky child? It’s frustrating for parents and children, and the amount of food that’s wasted on a daily basis is embarrassing. If you’ve ever wondered if a child can subsist on Goldfish crackers alone, the answer is yes....

I’ve been fiddling around with protein pancakes for well over a year now. I’ve successfully made my Grainless Banana Pancakes but I’ve grown tired of their flavor, as well as their stickiness. Most people recommend using protein powder as an added “flour” but we only ever keep chocolate protein...

In the midst of the smoothie craze, I’m going to openly admit that I prefer eating the ingredients of my smoothie whole, instead of blending them up. I know there are incredible benefits to finely pureeing fruits, veggies, and seeds so the superpowers of their...

I’ve been introducing solids to my 5 month old for the past few weeks. We started with avocado, and he has since successfully eaten bananas, sweet potatoes, and now this delicious applesauce. My first son got pre-packaged baby food from the grocery store because I...

Anyone else ever throw a bunch of ingredients into their Crock-pot without any foundation or inspiration of a real recipe, cross their fingers, and hope for the best? It’s a lot of fun and about as wild as I get these days! Today was such a...

My favorite obsession lately are zoodles! What are those? Naturally gluten-free, grain-free “pasta” made from zucchini. Noodles + zucchini = zoodles! Back in February, one of my birthday gifts was a spiraler. This awesome little contraption is basically an enormous pencil sharpener that turns zucchini,...

I’m starting to question my ability to follow directions because every time I begin to make someone else’s recipe, I can’t help but go rogue and add, omit, or change amounts of ingredients. In the process, I find myself grinning in anticipation of whether it...

It’s no surprise the last time I posted was one week before my son was born; a fair explanation, but I’m still cringing at how quiet my blog has been the past 2.5 months! Rest assured though, I’ve continued to eat clean and try out...

Over the weekend I attempted Roasted Chickpeas as a cheap, healthy snack. I’m not sure where I stumbled across this inspiration but it was somewhere in my Instagram, Twitter, or Pinterest feed. Gluten-free, grain-free, very low in calories, and made enough to last for a...

Instagram has been a-flurry recently with posts of many variations of protein pancakes by all the clean, healthy, fitness warriors I follow. They are all my main source of inspiration so I wanted to get on board with this too since my son’s favorite breakfast...

Growing up, my ultimate comfort food was my Grandma and Mom’s poached eggs on toast. They would place two perfectly cooked eggs onto two slices of buttered, white toast and then cut it into a bunch of a little squares; somehow managing to get each...

I am so happy now that strawberries are back in season! There’s just something about swapping out tomatoes for strawberries that makes a salad seem more sophisticated and gourmet. This refreshing salad is another one of my recipes where having previously baked chicken breast chilling...

Lately I have been using Instagram (@meroram) as an accountability diary of sorts by taking photos of my meals and commenting with the ingredients. People have been using Instagram for this very purpose since its inception, and I have to a small degree, but I’m...

This is the first week in about 3 months that I’m eating like a normal, healthy human being again, so forgive the simplicity of this recipe! But actually, because it’s so easy, filling, and good for you, I just had to share. It’s also vegetarian!...
