What do you like to eat when it is hot outside? My preference is a salad. Not just any old salad but one with lots of fresh veggies paired with a homemade dressing. It can’t get any better than that and it is quick and easy to put together if you are short on time.

This is not a traditional Cobb Salad. I like to add the things I enjoy eating in a salad, so the egg is probably all that’s Cobb. Here is my version of a Cobb Salad. This is a great light meal for 5 people or 5 meals!

Clean Eating Chicken Salad

Healthy Chicken Salad

Healthy Chicken Salad

This chicken salad was probably the best one I’ve made in a long time. In most foods that I prepare, I pull in some of my favorites while adding something new. For this version, I used what I have learned about Paleo to make it even cleaner.

Staying Healthy Tip:  One thing that I truly enjoy doing is planning.  I plan my meals for the week to include breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks.  This will help you stay the course of clean eating!  The trick is to make you meals so tasty that you would not want to cheat.

Easy Recipe For Grilled Pork Chops and Grilled Fennel Salad

Grilled Pork Chops with Grilled Fennel and Garlic PotatoesGrilling meats and vegetables during warm weather is the best way to give your stove top and oven a rest. You do not have to be a chef to grill a great meal for yourself, family or a small intimate gathering with friend. Preparing this meal does not require much and it is quick, easy and healthy.

Cooking for the first time? The best thing you can do to ease any stress you might have is to do some prep work the night before, such as chopping vegetables, marinating meats, or just about anything the recipe requires except the actual cooking of the main dish.

My recipes contain organic ingredients. The pork chops I am using in this recipe are boneless and have been trimmed of all visible fat. You can certainly use bone in pork chops for this recipe too. Start out by making the rub for the pork chops. Read the rest of this entry »

Healthy Greek Salad

I’ve been dining at Panera Bread for a few days now eating the Greek Salad.  It is a good salad, however I am not a big fan of Iceberg lettuce and I wanted a side of grilled chicken.  I decided to make my own just the way I like it.

Greek Seasoning

You will need this to season the chicken and for the salad dressing.  I tried to find this at the grocery store but could not.  So, I made my own and everything I needed was in my cabinet!  I could have saved myself time from running around trying to find this seasoning.

  • 1 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic

Spicy is always the name of the game.  I had a taste for a Cajun burger and sweet potato fries.  This is quick and extremely easy to put together.  I would recommend cutting the recipe in half if you only want to eat this for a few days.  The ingredients below will last a week and each burger is 4oz.

Cajun Burger

  • 2lbs Organic Ground Beef
  • 2 tbsn Cajun Seasoning
  • 1/2 chopped red onion
  • 1 tbsn dried basil
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 tbsn dried thyme

Most times I can not locate certain spice blends and have gotten pretty accustomed to making my own batch.  If you can not find Cajun Seasonings, you can make your own.  Try this Cajun Seasoning recipe.

Mix all the ingredients together.  You can measure out you burger to 4oz. or make as you normally would.  You can put them on the grill, broil in the oven, or use your George Foreman.

A funny story about this dish.  I had a taste for rice pilaf using cauliflower because I am still following Paleo.  I had the cauliflower in the skillet and added some chopped celery, shredded carrots and some chopped scallion in a little bit of chicken stock.  I didn’t like the way it was coming together so I put my ‘lets see what happens’ cap on.  I chopped up a few garlic cloves and added that to the ‘vegetable medley’.  I had a jar of sun dried tomatoes and two cans of fire roasted tomatoes and 1/2 of a zucchini that I needed to do something with so I added that to the mix as well.  I thought..oh boy what a mess.  So, what do I pair this with….chicken.  To the freezer, add water to the pressure cooker, add the chicken and cook for 12 min.
