Sensible Scrambled Eggs

I love eggs whether it be fried, boiled, deviled, egg salad, omelets, or even a scrambled egg sandwich. They are so easy to make and so good for you. Here is a quick and healthier version of the scrambled eggs that we eat on a regular basis.

I just made a couple of sandwiches for Mr. Awesome and myself yesterday when we were feeling a bit hangry in between meals and they certainly hit the spot. These would also be really good for a quick breakfast with some sausage or bacon and a side of Super Simple Sauteed Spinach. Continue reading “Sensible Scrambled Eggs”

Stuffed Mushroom Omelet

This is such a yummy way to start your day and we love this with mushrooms but you could really use any kind of vegetable you like and maybe even add some bacon or sausage to make it a little bit heartier. Some of us like to eat this with a side of Super Simple Sauteed Spinach.

This could work for lunches and dinner too for those crazy days when you just don’t feel like cooking much or when you haven’t been to the grocery store in a while. Continue reading “Stuffed Mushroom Omelet”

Super Simple Sauteed Spinach

This is such an easy and delicious way to get some greens into your diet. They are good served with any meal as well. I know I always wanted to eat my spinach so I could be strong like Popeye but most kids nowadays don’t know who Popeye is and they don’t want anything to do with green veggies. My kiddos love this stuff though! Continue reading “Super Simple Sauteed Spinach”

Super Yummy Caulitaters

When Mr. Awesome made the decision to give up some of his favorite foods I knew I had to get creative with some alternatives to the potato dishes that we eat so frequently. I had tried to make some ‘fake taters’ before without success but this time we finally had a winner.

This version is close to what they have in the Trim Healthy Mama books but may not be entirely on the plan as I have added a few extra ingredients which takes them to a whole nother level! If your crew isn’t entirely sold on the idea of cauliflower taters then try using half potatoes and half cauliflower, to begin with. These are really good on top of Shepherd’s Pie in a Skillet as well! (You can sneak some extra veggies and/or spinach into that recipe as well!) Continue reading “Super Yummy Caulitaters”

Manly Meatloaf

This recipe just happened to come about as Mr. Awesome decided he wanted to start eating healthier. I had already done my grocery shopping for the week so I just decided to tweak a few recipes to make them a bit healthier. I needed a name for this and he said it was a ‘manly meatloaf’ so that’s what we’ll call it from now on. It has also earned a repeating spot on our meal planning calendar.

I have been scouring the Trim Healthy Mama books for some inspiration as well and will be posting many more recipes soon! This one was adapted from my recipe for Upside-Down Meatloaf. Continue reading “Manly Meatloaf”
