If you add one new thing to your diet, it's gotta be Chia seeds!  They are all the rage right

now, but this is one trend that's worth following and continuing for the long haul.  Chia seeds (yes, the same type that grow crazy green hair on little ceramic heads) are absolutely chock full of nut...

I am officially in love with refrigerated oatmeal!


My morning meal has never been healthier, yummier, prettier and easier! I read about refrigerated overnight oats a while ago, but cold oatmeal that was not cooked sounded weird to me -right?  Well, curiosity finally got the best of me and I se...

So I came home from vacation and found that my little garden was actually producing real veggies!  Amazed at my new found green thumb, I wanted to make something to showcase this miracle.  I'd never tried grilling pizza, but WOW, I'll never go back (unless it's raining or too cold to go outsid...

For a quick and easy dinner, marinate one chicken breast (cut into large chunks) in olive oil, minced garlic, lemon zest and chopped fresh basil for about 30 minutes. While that is marinating cook up your favorite pasta. Penne is a good choice I used Gemelli. Drain the pasta and save some o...
