Cheesy Farro-Broccoli Bake

In Uncategorized by Madison Mayberry3 Comments

Let’s be honest, the amount of cooking that’s been going on in our house lately has been minimal. But as life slowly transitions back to “normal” (and no, it still doesn’t feel normal if you really want to know) it feels good to do things that come naturally, to create something out of raw ingredients and nourish the body. Plus, eating take-out and snack-y type foods can only keep you going for a certain amount of time. Sometimes you just … Read More

Chopped Green Salad Wrap

  I’ve received a lot of questions from readers about what I pack for lunches and snacks when I go to work each day. I’m not going to lie, I struggle just as much as the next person. But since I would much rather spend money going out to eat with my husband on date nights, taking a packed lunch and snacks is the norm.  A few of my favorite snacks being:           *Lara Bars (cashew cookie, peanut butter cookie, … Read More

Alright, I’ll admit it. I don’t eat broccoli every single day, but I’d be hard-pressed to think of a week in the past year that I didn’t eat broccoli at least once.

And if you are reading this thinking about how much you dislike broccoli, I will make … Read More

There’s something undeniably sexy about pasta of any and every sort. In my opinion, it’s the sexiest of all foods, far surpassing the usual suspects: oysters, caviar, champagne. Maybe it’s because for me pasta has always been a bit of a ‘forbidden’ food. But truly, pasta can be delicious and healthy. Case in point? Green Goddess Pasta. The base of this dish is 100% whole wheat spinach pasta, but any pasta would work just fine. One of my favorite tricks … Read More

Turkey Burgers with Broccoli Tomato Salad

Tired. The word of the day, week, and maybe even the month! It’s not so much the kind of tired that you feel when you had one night of bad rest, but rather, the kind of exhaustion you feel when that one night of bad rest becomes multiple nights and tasks and responsibilities pile up. I don’t have kids or a family, but I think I’m beginning to understand why so many moms resort to the help of take-out when … Read More
