I can’t believe I keep forgetting to flavor my rice. Plain rice is so boring. This garlic infused curry rice is amazing. Topped with flavorful shrimp, cod and veggies makes it a match made in heaven. My husband said this rice dish was better than any other rice dish I have made. Whoa! And it takes a lot to impress this guy. He called it and I quote “a top 5 dish!”

My new motto is “top it with an egg.” I have recently become obsessed with eggs and that’s why this dish appealed to me from the get go. I was a little scared of the sweet potato as I am truly not a fan. Once all of these flavors got married together it was perfection. The salty Queso Fresco topped the potato as well as sautéed garlic, sweet onion, yellow peppers and black beans. Topped with lime infused arugula and a runny poached egg dripping down the side with goodness. Unfortunately, my husband was not a fan so I won’t be making it for him again! If you don’t like sweet potato, I think a red potato was do just as good.

I have been racking my brain for new lunch ideas low in calorie, high in protein and filling of course! Wrapping asparagus with a little low fat cheese and thin black forest ham slices was super easy and fun to do with the kids. After an easy prep and quick roast I had dinner and several lunches ready to go! I didn't measure everything out, but you get the picture.

Talk about a crazy idea gone good! I was seriously combing my fridge deciding what needed to be cooked, added to the grocery list or even frozen if I wasn’t going to get to it in time! I found some chicken and broccoli slaw that needed to be cooked or consumed by this weekend and I knew I wasn’t going to get to it with everything going on. Of course not wanting to waste anything and intending on having healthy food at my finger tips, I had a genius idea. Yes genius. Go ahead and laugh. This is my genius zone. LOL! Four ingredients later I have an awesome lunch, dinner or side dish at my finger tips! So easy (I know I say that all the time, but it really was simple).

I know there are many versions of fruit dip out there, but here is my version. No marshmallow cream here – sorry! I used low fat ingredients and whipped it vigorously for the right texture. The kids and I devoured this during the super bowl instead of chips and fatty meats! WIN!
What an awesome protein snack. Unfortunately my husband’s digestive problems prevent him from eating one of the most amazing protein sources – nuts! As a supportive partner, I try to keep them out of the house to avoid temptation for him. He has so been missing them though. I recently discovered roasted chickpeas and was blown away by the concept. Roast them for 40 minutes and they are nice and crunchy and very similar to a nut. He was in love…with the chickpeas.

Pizza was on the menu for a recent family gathering. This temptation was killing me even days before the event. I decided to make something small to snack on instead of pizza. Most of my husband suggestions are a super fattening, but he suggested a taco bite. I prepped everything during a lunch break, assembled and baked right before the party! These are so good – no joke.

Not much to say here, but I will take a plate full of these any night. Shrimp have a bad rap at times due to the “farming” of shrimp and the fact that they are high in cholesterol. Sometimes overlooked is that they are full of protein, vitamins and even nutrients that are proven to help food cravings. Recent studies even indicate that although they are high in cholesterol, shrimp cholesterol may not be that bad for you. In fact they are high in “good fats,” or omega fatty acids. Plus, they pack a protein punch!
