Brendan is sick today so I making him some homemade chicken noodle soup. I’ve gotten the recipe from Table for Two and let me tell you: this is some of the best chicken noodle soup I’ve ever made! Super tasty, easy, and lucky for me, healthy 🙂 Brendan loved it! This soup would be great to try with matzoh balls or dumplings.
One of my biggest problems with healthy cooking is that things lack FLAVOR. With DIY Infused Olive Oils, you can add a bit of zest and spice to your favorite dishes. I am going to try this with pasta and salad dressings! I think a lemon-chili infused oil would be lovely!
I always get bored of water but find that sodas are too sugary and don’t fit in with my diet. Everything Fabulous has the perfect solution though: flavored ice cubes! She tried it with strawberries but I think you could try this idea with blueberries, raspberries, peaches, everything! I think this is a great idea to have with a lime wedge and soda. If your feeling naughty add a splash of vodka 😉
Spiced Nuts and Seeds via Whole Living
Mix 3 cups whole nuts with 1/4 cup each flaxseeds, quinoa, and sunflower seeds. In a separate bowl, whisk 2 egg whites with 2 tablespoons honey, 1 1/2 teaspoons coarse salt, and 1/4 teaspoon each cayenne, cumin, and cinnamon. Toss with nut mix. Spread in a single layer on a baking sheet; bake at 325 degrees until dry, stirring occasionally, about 30 minutes. Scrape from pan while cooling, to avoid sticking. Makes 16 servings (178 calories each).
Today I made Olive and Goat cheese ravioli via Heather Christo. It was so good! I’m going to have to try this again on another “cheat” day 🙂
Yummm….I need to try these!
Maybe I will drink more water if its flavored. Jamie Oliver says yes 😉
Now that the weather is cooling down, I’m starting to crave hot chocolate on a daily basis 🙂
