Easy Overnight Oats

Can you believe it’s back to school time again already?  Since this is the first time in 17 years that I haven’t had a child going back to school, back to school means something different to me.  That means it’s almost time to start fall marathon training.  Woohoo!! I live in Texas where it’s currently…

3 Ingredient Bacon Wrapped Maple Pork Tenderloin

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #PowerfulFusionClean #CollectiveBias I found a great deal on pork tenderloin last week and stocked up on it.  I love pork tenderloin because it is so easy to make but seems like such a fancy meal.  It’s one of those…

Pesto Chicken Pasta

After whipping up a batch of pesto, I was looking for a super easy dish to throw together for lunch.  Pesto chicken pasta might be my new favorite go-to quick and easy lunch! Chicken and pesto are always the perfect combination in my opinion so I decided that was definitely the way to go.  Since…

Easy Vegan Pesto

I expressed my love for all things pesto a couple of months ago with this classic pesto recipe.  I just loved how easy it was to make and how flavorful it was – it was perfect for chicken, pasta, as a condiment or whatever else.  I loved how versatile it was!  I used this recipe…

Avocado Lime Popsicles

Summer is almost here!  The temperature has been steadily rising here and it’s starting to see 90 degree afternoons already.  I know once the temperature creeps up and we near triple digits, we’re all going to be looking for something to cool us off! And I have just the thing! Nothing is quite as refreshing…

Texas Caviar (Bean Salad)

Texas Caviar (Bean Salad)

I was born in Texas and have lived here my entire life.  And up until a few months ago, I had never heard of Texas caviar. Obviously, this dish is not actually caviar.  That leads one to question why its called caviar and why is it a Texan specialty?  I’ll admit it – I was…

Spicy Tabasco Roasted Chickpeas

Spicy Tabasco Roasted Chickpeas

Last weekend I made some Roasted Curry Chickpeas and Mr. Real Food sat down and ate them all.  Guess they were pretty good!  As usual, when I sit down to plan our meals each week, I ask him what he’d like to have.  And he requested some really spicy roasted chickpeas, maybe with Tabasco.  He puts…

Delicious Healthy Brownies

Delicious Healthy Brownies

One of the hard things about starting to clean up my diet was giving up sweets.   True, certain desserts can be cleaned up so they are healthier but most of the time it’s just not the same.  I finally found a healthy dessert that is even better than the original.  Yes, I said it, these…

Easy Homemade Granola

Easy Homemade Granola

I run every Saturday with a great group of women.  We run anywhere from an hour to 3 hours or so and talk about lots of different things while we run.  Actually, to be completely honest, we mostly talk about food.  I’d like to say that we only talk about healthy food but sometimes the…

Cheesy Pesto Bread

Cheesy Pesto Bread

Since discovering the awesomeness of pesto a couple of months ago, I have spent a fair amount of time on Pinterest looking for more ways to use it.  Please do not ask me to explain what “fair amount of time” means because, as many of you know, time on Pinterest works differently than time in…

Spicy Roasted Chickpeas

Spicy Roasted Chickpeas

I’ve read about all of the benefits of eating chickpeas, but I’ve got to admit that I never really liked them.  Until now.  You see, I had only ever eaten them on salads and did not really care for the firmness of them or texture.  But, as with most vegetables, preparing them in a different…

Peanut Butter Cookie No-Bake Bites

Peanut Butter Cookie No-Bake Bites

I’ve had so much fun experimenting with different no bake recipes.  It’s just so cool that you can take a couple of ingredients, mix them up, roll them in a ball and you’ve got a healthy little snack.  I’m finding the possibilities virtually endless! With a base recipe of nuts and dates, you can go…
