Chopped Greek Salad

It’s hot in the Bay Area. Like… waaaaaaaaaay hot. Nobody wants to cook, and if it weren’t for basic life necessities, I’m not sure we’d be eating. That’s when we end up eating a lot of cold and easy foods, like salad. Only thing is I get tired of traditional salads pretty fast, so I…

Instant Pot Pesto Chicken Stew

This started off as a “Can we try this?” from the future MIL. Usually, I try a recipe as written the first time and then make changes, but I felt like messing with this one right off the bat. I’d made something similar before so I felt like it was okay. Right off the bat,…

Curried Air Fried Chicken Wings

Hi, I’m Snarfy and I’m a Chicken-Wing-A-Holic. I’m only enabling myself because I bought an air fryer recently and that makes having super crispy chicken wings easier than it should be. There’s a Vietnamese restaurant in my hometown that has curry chicken wings on their appetizer menu and I’ve never seen them anywhere else. They…

Avocado, Chicken, & Egg Salad

So I’ve been doing some clean eating meal plans with Johanna at Love Your Health¬†again to clean up after the delicious horror story that was eating around the holidays. In January, I did her free 5-day Whole Food Challenge with my whole family and some friends to get back in the habit of eating better….

Chicken and Dumplings

The weather is getting cooler, right? Maybe not in California exactly, but we can have wishful thoughts. Fortunately it is getting cooler in the evening, so at least dinner can still be all nice and warm and comforting and autumny. Chicken and Dumplings 1 whole chicken, washed and cut into quarters water 3 onions, cut…

Chopped Thai Salad with Coconut-Curry Dressing

Um, yes. This. So much yes. Make it. I was looking at recipe collections one day for some ideas. I feel like I’ve been in a little bit of dry streak with my recipe game, so I needed to try some new stuff that fits the diet and makes me think outside the box a…

Beanless Chicken Chili with Cauliflower

It’s been a long tiiiiime… since I posted anythiiiiing… Sorry about that guys. Life happened. I was busy adjusting to my new food life the last few months, trying to get better at understanding what works for a “Lean and Green” meal on my Medifast plan. I’ve also been thinking up and researching new recipes….

Healthier General Tso’s Chicken

So this recipe isn’t totally 100% on plan for me, but it’s delicious and I figured the extra little bit of non-plan items I was getting wouldn’t hurt too bad. ¬†I really wanted some Chinese-ish for dinner (even though General Tso’s Chicken is totally an American thing… I think…), so I made a sauce that…
