When your husband roasts a pork butt over the weekend and then has plenty of leftovers, so he makes a pizza with delicious caramelized onions and leftover pulled pork 😍
Does your husband like to cook? Mine LOVES to cook, which is good, because I really prefer to EAT the food, not COOK the food 🙂
If you are looking for a warming, filling and super delicious dish to get through these bitterly cold days, this one was PERFECT! 😍
Warmed me up after being chilled to the bones for weeks!
Creamy Parm Tortellini Soup
Of note: we added chicken to get protein in. I also suggested next time we could try it with small meatballs like in Italian Wedding Soup, because I bet it’d be delicious!
And we seasoned to our taste, because recipes always go light on the seasoning and we LOVE seasoning!
Mmmmm, yum! This makes about 4 servings, each about 43 calories, 7.3g of carbs, 1.5g of Fiber… a great snack you can store in the refrigerator (in a sealed container) for next time!
What would you pair this with? I might pair it with some celery or an apple, but you might just find me eating this on it’s own… 🙂
Fire up the grill! This one is simple but yummy.
First, wash and dry the sweet potatoes, then cut them into wedges (think steak fries sized), toss with a little oil (something high smoke point is preferable as you’ll be grilling them) and sprinkle with this spices of your choice – there are several recipes for “rubs” out there that would work nicely!
Preheat grill to medium and then place the wedges directly on the grill grates. Cook about 3 – 4 minutes per side.
Mmmm yes, anything with coconut flavor IS indeed right up my alley! We recently started using Coconut aminos, and they are yummy – not AS flavorful as soy sauce, but MUCH MUCH healthier, AND Diabetic-friendly… now that’s a win!
Do you cook with coconut aminos?
Mmmm excuse me while I just drool a little… okay, almost done…
But seriously, YUM! I love chicken parm, my husband makes it very well, and does it the healthier way by baking instead of frying, and it’s still so good!
In meatball form… I mean, that’s a whole lot of yeah! Perfect party food, too… might make these for the Super Bowl!
Careful though, don’t eat them all!

Do you like acorn squash? What about sweet potato? Dynamo combination, if you ask me!
With all the holiday meals, it can be easy to feel bogged down. This is a lighter, cleaner dish offering tons of flavor but won’t sit in you like a ton of bricks, either.
A note: sometimes using sweetened cranberries takes off some of the tartness. I make this exception to the rule because I don’t like the super bitterness of cranberries that have been baked. You can use whichever cranberry form you like! 🙂
Ohhhh boy! Yum! We kicked off our FALLing in Love wiith Cleaner Eating yesterday, and this is one of the recipes I contributed!
Autumn really has an abundance of seasonal foods, and it’s so delicious!
