The Teami 30 Day Detox Review

by

Our Teami 30 Day Detox is done! We did all 30 days without skipping a single day and the results were beyond what I anticipated! Being a skeptic I am never a believer is fad “detoxs” and was a little worried when I signed on for this one. Since it was an all natural tea and a lifestyle change instead of chemicals in a pill or a hardcore diet I decided to give the Teami Detox a try. Not only did I LOVE the results, I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE their teas. I’ve already purchased two of their other tea blends, Relax and Profit! They taste delicious and the tumblers are so easy to make tea in. Here is my Teami 30 Day Detox review!

You can read what exactly we did for our detox here.

Clean Cobb Salad

by

A clean version of a cobb salad is a rare find! While doing our 30 Day Detox, I did a lot of meal prep and made a salad for lunch almost every day. Since I had a lot of hard boiled eggs and had some avocados I came up with this idea for a clean cobb. I was sick of only having oil and vinegar for a dressing and wanted something creamier. This salad turned out amazing! I can eat this salad over and over again and (more…)

30 Day Detox – One Week Update & Tips!

by

We’re a little over a week in our 30-day detox and I can’t believe how well it’s going! Let me start off by saying I was skeptical of our one-week results because we went to an event during the weekend and we weren’t perfect that day. Hey, we are all human life is life things come up and we are trying to make a lifestyle change not just accomplish a 30-day challenge, so a being perfect all the time isn’t going to happen. I let it go and figured my week one results just wouldn’t be as great as I’d hoped. I was totally wrong and we still got great results in the first week. So, here’s my one week update and some tips I’ve learned along the first week of detoxing.

Nashville Hot Chicken Recipe

Try the Nashville Craze at Home with this Hot Chicken RecipeNashville Hot Chicken…..

has been around forever. However, it just recently became a craze. I grew up in Nashville and while I remember people referencing hot chicken, I don’t remember it being a thing until after I graduated high school. I’m HUGE fan of anything spicy, so I’m shocked I never had this dry rubbed spicy chicken sooner. The company I worked for out of college had the Nashville hot chicken restaurants, Bolton’s, vend at their music venue. Part of my job was working with the vendors. After telling the owner, Mr. Mathews, I’d never tried hot chicken he gave me some. I was hooked from that moment on. Shortly after this, hot chicken took (more…)

Take Mexican Night Up a Notch and Make These Simple Fajita Bowls

Mexican food is a staple in my house. I love a taco Tuesday. I am always looking for a way to get an extra Mexican meal into my week. These Mexican Fajita Bowls make a great dinner. They were extremely easy to make and delicious. This was definitely a what’s in the pantry dinner. We traveled to visit family in Nashville last week. My husband was traveling the week before, so I felt lucky to even find the ingredients to make this dish.

Ingredients Used For Mexican Fajita Bowls

The ingredients for this recipe were based on what I had on hand. I purchased a few pounds of organic frozen ground turkey from a local farm. When I went to make dinner, I was thrilled to find 1lb left in my freezer. I also had some peppers, 1 tomato, (more…)

Turkey Meatloaf with Roasted Vegetables

30 Minute Dinner Turkey Meatloaf with Roasted Broccoli & Cauliflower Floret Recipe. A Healthier Alternative to the classic dish.

Everyone has a favorite classic dish. As a child meatloaf was certainly far from my favorite, but for most American’s, including my husband, meatloaf is an absolute favorite.  Meatloaf is a classic here in the states, but really it isn’t an American dish. There is a version of meatloaf made in a number of different cultures and it is thought to date back to as early as 5th century Rome. It’s no wonder most people love meatloaf, because clearly it’s stood the test of time. In the US, meatloaf became a family staple during the depression. During that time a family could really stretch a dollar by making the now “classic” version meatloaf with leftover ground meat, grains, bread or crackers to bind the dish and some sauce to top it off.

Like I stated before meatloaf certainly isn’t my favorite dish, but since my husband really loves it I figured I like to make a healthier alternative that I really enjoy as well. Meatloaf is a meal I really don’t think of during mid summer, but once fall starts (more…)

Baked Honey Buffalo Chicken Tenders

Baked Honey Buffalo Chicken Tenders. The healthier non-friend chicken tender recipe will have you and your family coming back for more!

Spicy food is a slight obsession of mine. Whenever I eat out or even at home I’m always searching the menu for something with heat. Buffalo sauce tops the list of my favorites. I love wings, tenders, wraps, pizzas and anything else I can smother in the spicy sauce. My go to bar food are chicken tenders and while I love the spicy fried chicken, I do not love the amount of calories that comes with. Instead of going out to eat tonight for the glorious spicy hot fried tenders and having instant guilt and possibly a stomach ache from all the grease, I decided to take a stab at a healthier version at home.

Baked Honey Buffalo Chicken Tenders. Easy Dinner Recipe. If you like buffalo swings, you will love this healthier version. Detroit style sauce is sticky, sweet and spicy!My husband is from Michigan and on a trip back to visit his family we had Detroit style buffalo wings. There are many places around the states that serve this style of buffalo sauce and you likely has seen a similar version on a menu somewhere. It’s a tangier sweet and spicy (more…)

Beer Can Chicken

by

Grilling is almost like a summer olympic sport in my house. Ever spring I anticipate dustin off our weber and get out the charcoal. When the weather is finally warm enough, there is nothing better than a summer night spent grilling on the patio. Beer can chicken is something I always wanted to make. Don’t wait! Make it immediately before summer is gone. It is the juiciest chicken in the world. I cannot wait to make it again.

Beer Can Chicken - Grill Recipes - The Pike's Place

We recently had family in town. Since moving, we had not explored one of the oldest farmers markets in the country. It is a short drive from our new house. We wandered around the market with the plan to get groceries to grill out for dinner. A farmers market is an experience in itself. You can find so many different types of fruits, veggies, meats, trinket and this market had chickens and bunnies.
