I'm lucky that my kids are not picky eaters. Their favorite dish for dinner is salmon with asparagus. I usually cook a big batch so I have enough for lunch the next day. This dish it's so easy to make. In less than 30 minutes dinner it's served!
Hello Green Salad! How I've missed you during the holidays. I'm so happy you are back in my life. <3

Don't know what to cook for dinner during school nights? Here are some ideas and tips to get you started. First, make it simple. My kids don't like many ingredients in their dish so I don't go super fancy on the menu, but love to keep them fresh and mostly organic. Second, save some time by getting pre-made protein such as chicken skewers from Costco. I also like to get meatballs, and chicken hot pie from Whole Foods. Third, presentation. I use bento plates so they can see all the different items on their plate, and it also helps me to get more creative with side options. What are your favorite dishes you made during weeknights? Would love to hear from ya!
// Spaghetti and Meatballs //
// Grilled Turkey and Cheese Sandwich - Fresh Strawberries - Edamame from Costco - Baby Carrots //
// Fork In The Road Foods Hot Dog - Fresh Cantaloupe and Blackberries - Steamed Broccoli and Carrots //
// Free Ranged Beef Burger - Steamed Broccoli - Apple Sauce //
It's typically whatever leftover protein and veggies I have in my fridge. This was kale, chard, mushrooms, bell peppers, and topped with eggs and pieces of cooked bacon. Yum!
I used to run a lot. I mean like a lot.... like six half marathons and a full marathon in one year. I know, not very smart and of course my knee got injured and I had to force myself to rest. That rest took 3 years for me to start running again. My friend posted on Facebook that one of their teammate had dropped out of their team relay. At first, I was very hesitant to say "me!" because I haven't trained for long runs in a long time, but I thought I can totally run the shortest leg right? So I said yes without asking which leg first. Of course when my friend wrote me back to welcome me and yadi... yada... told me that I'll be running the longest leg. I won't lie, I was very nervous because I didn't have much time to train (not to mention kids baseball season take up all my afternoon, then homework, dinner, bed time...) but went for it. I'm so glad I did because my confidence is back and I can't wait for my next race! Thank you lush butterflies!
Best part after the long run ;-)
Only in Oakland :-)
It’s hard to always eat healthy on the go. Between meetings and dropping off the kids at school I try to grab something green and yummy. Green juices (ok...and coffee) give me lots of energy, and a healthy salad is always a good idea to get me going through the day.
No wonder this is my favorite green juice, it contains some of the most nutritious fruits and vegetables. This is a great juice for boosting your immune system and keeping your whole body clean, healthy, and happy.
4 ribs Celery
2 Green Apples
