Y’all! I’ve already told you I’m on the fall train over here! But I may not have told you I’m making it my mission to create as many new, delicious, AND healthy recipes as I can. But I am now!
Fall flavors and foods are part of what I love most about the season, but they aren’t always the most nutritious. I want to change that, so I’ll be sharing some of my favorite clean eating recipes with all of the yummy fall flavors. This breakfast recipe is a perfect way to start off the season!
Chinese has always been one of those foods that I’d gorge myself on and then hate myself afterward. Literally, it’s like I just can’t control myself when there are crab rangoons involved. 🙅🏼
So instead of giving in to temptation, I whipped up a little “Chinese Fakeout” instead! I got the same flavors without all of the added fat and carbs. (Minus the rangoons, of course. I’ll save those for a day when I’m planning a cheat.)
I’m always looking for better alternatives for my carbs and had heard of the sweet potato toast trend. I was a bit skeptical but finally decided to give it a try this weekend, and let me tell you, it was a real winner. Even my husband enjoyed it, and he’s always the naysayer when it comes to crazy “health foods.”
I loved this option so much that I decided I’d share my recipe with you so you can give it a try too! It’s SO easy and super-yummy! Plus, it kept me full longer than your typical wheat toast would!
I love a complex, several-course dinner just as much as the next person. But, when it comes down to it, I enjoy an easy, healthy recipe even more. I mean really, who has time for hours of cooking during the week? So, today, I’m sharing one of my favorite slow cooker recipes with you. I’ll admit pork isn’t a meat I’d suggest eating every week, but prepared in the right way and eating sparingly, you can definitely enjoy this ranch pork roast as a frugal and healthy dinner recipe every once in a while!

It’s the weekend – holla! Anyway, you know what that means we’re talking about on the blog today. That’s right, healthy living even on the weekend. Today I want to shift our focus a little and look more specifically at our weekend food choices. I know there is nothing better than waking up, pulling out the griddle, and whipping up a batch of homemade pancakes (except if someone else makes them for you…) or maybe a bowlful of decadent ice cream with a homemade brownie on top. Whose mouth isn’t watering right now?
I don’t know if I am speaking for everyone, but I know the weekend means paying a little less attention to my food choices and a lot more attention to having fun, which often means, come Monday, I am regretting a few of my “splurges.” Hence today’s post on healthy weekend food swaps. Hopefully by sharing these food options with you, it’ll encourage me to make better choices, too. I promise you with these options, no one will feel cheated, except maybe my Monday morning regret… 😉
