Protein Pasta

I grew up eating something we called “Spaghetti I-oy.” (Eye-Oy.) That’s how we pronounced it. I had no idea what that meant but I knew I loved it. It was a pasta dish my Italian step father and his family made every Sunday. When I got older I realized the dish was really called Spaghetti … Continue reading

Mexican Quinoa Bowl

We probably eat quinoa several times a week. It’s so versatile you can really do just about anything you can dream up with it. I’ve made it for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack time.

This is the perfect meal to make when you have a crisper … Continue reading

“Skinny” Fettuccine Alfredo

My husband loves Fettuccine Alfredo and although I wanted to make it for him, I wanted to make a healthier version. We both work way too hard working out almost daily to mess it up with one meal. If you remember correctly, regular Fettuccine Alfredo can take a full stick of butter, a full cup or … Continue reading
