My kiddo happens to be a donut lover. It’s the one thing he can’t resist and asks for whenever we are out and about and they are available. Of course the occasional donut indulgence is fine, but when you can make your own at home and the ingredients are all good ones, you don’t have to feel bad about serving them up to your kids any day of the week! With the end of summer approaching at a rapid pace, I find that everyone I know has a ton of zucchini in their fridge and I know I am always looking for recipes to use up my zucchini in new ways! My healthier chocolate zucchini donuts are perfect for a healthy and fun breakfast and they happen to be loaded with all the good stuff!
We are meatball obsessed in my house and I am a firm believer that meatballs don’t have to be just for Italian cuisine! I love taking some of my favorite flavors, like chicken shawarma, and turning them into a meatball! I love that meatballs can be prepped in advance, are kid-friendly, and make for an easy dinner any night of the week! Greek flavors in general are some of my favorite and I created a bowl that combines all of my favorites into one dish that makes for the best weeknight dinner! My chicken shawarma meatball bowls are full of flavor and easy to whip up making this recipe ideal for a healthy family friendly dinner!
Back to school is in full swing and this week I am all about making your life easier as a parent when it comes to lunch boxes and after school snacks that are healthy and kid-approved! I know it can get old packing the same old lunch boxes every single week and I know that your kids get tired of those same lunch boxes too! I am hosting a back to school series over on my Instagram throughout the whole week to provide recipes, tips, and tricks on how to get your child to actually eat the good food that you pack them that will keep them nourished and energized throughout their day! I have also rounded up my top 25 lunch box and after school snack ideas that are perfect for meal prepping, healthy, and they are kid-tested and approved!
I am not sure when Taco Tuesday became a thing, but I am totally on board. For one I love tacos (duh), but secondly I love that every week I can use this day as an excuse to make some sort of taco and I don’t have to think about what’s for dinner! The only thing I have to decide is do I want steak tacos, fish tacos, taco salads, or chicken tacos! Not a bad problem to have right? I have been meaning to share my chicken taco recipe and and am finally getting around to it! This recipe is not only full of flavor, but it can be ready in 30 minutes any night of the week! I have created the BEST chicken tacos and you are going to love adding this recipe into your taco rotation!
With back to school starting for some this week, easy breakfasts that can be prepped in advance are essential for getting out of the door on time! I love to have ready to eat breakfasts in the fridge for the whole family because I have a kid who wakes up hungry and a hubby who takes his breakfast to go! Some days I get tired of overnight oats and eggs so switching it up to keep things interesting is key! Chia pudding is one of those breakfast that I tend to forget about and then when I remember, I go through a chia pudding phase where I can’t get enough! Currently I’m in that phase, and because it’s so easy, I created easy chia pudding (three ways) so that you can set yourself up for success in the mornings!
The summer is almost over, but that doesn’t mean that we still can’t enjoy all of the gorgeous summer fruits for a little while longer! I don’t know about you, but even though I long for crisp fall mornings, saying goodbye to all of my favorite melons, tomatoes, stone fruits, and cherries is not something I am ready for yet! One of my favorite ways to enjoy summer’s produce is to make a Caprese salad! It’s the most perfect summer dish that is so great for a light lunch or dinner all season long! I turned one of my favorite salads into the best summer entertaining platter! My Ultimate Summer Caprese Platter is perfect to serve up for any remaining warm summer nights spent with friends and family!
