Recipe of the Week: Pineapple Stir Fried Rice

The great thing about this recipe is that it utilizes leftovers, AND relies on convenient canned and frozen ingredients! It can also be customized: if you prefer to add more vegetables, it doesn’t change the taste of the recipe, or… Continue Reading →

​Tortellini with Healthy Alfredo Sauce

Cream sauce doesn’t have to be heavy and unhealthy for you. Check out our delicious version that uses olive oil and 1% milk instead!

Time-Saving Hack: This recipe pairs great with a fresh salad. Buy salad kits at the grocery store for a quick and healthy side–no buying a lot of little separate ingredients.

Shredded Chicken Tacos with Tomatoes and Grilled Corn

Fresh-tasting, fast, and easy! Time-Saving Hack: Opt out of using fresh grilled corn and instead use frozen corn. Time-Saving Hack: Buy a small rotisserie chicken and shred it instead of having to make the chicken yourself. Time-Saving Hack: Have your family assemble their own tacos to cut down on prep time and to allow for customization.

Asiago Tortellini

Definitely one of the fastest meals I’ve made in a long time. I didn’t have any fresh basil on hand, but dried work just fine (definitely don’t dump a whole ¼ cup in there, though–just season it to taste). After the picture was already taken (whoops), I decided to stir in some spinach, making the whole thing a little greener and a little healthier.

Grilled Chicken and Pineapple Sandwiches

So delicious! Probably the best of any recipe I’ve made this week. I ended up using arugula instead of basil leaves and cut my chicken into strips. If you don’t like using mayonnaise, you could easily use a substitute, like ranch, teriyaki sauce, or barbecue sauce.

Chicken and Caramelized Pineapple Pizza

Pizza is one of my favorite homemade dinners because it doesn’t require a recipe. It’s really hard to screw it up, there are endless combinations to try, and you often end up representing several different food groups in one dish..

This was a combo I came up with after looking in my cart at ingredients I was already buying for other meals. In the future, I think this recipe would be even better with barbecue sauce or caramelized onions added.
