{Fancy} Cobb Salad


IMG_0016The boy’s specialty…cobb salad! Placing the food in a stripe-like fashion over the bed of lettuce gives it the {fancy} look…and it’s delicious! Lean protein (chicken, eggs), healthy fats (avocado) and veggies make this is a very satisfying and balanced meal…just skip the bacon and go easy on the blue cheese 😉

Potluck BYOVeggies

veggies1Potlucks can be tricky to navigate for healthy options.  People love to bring pasta dishes, breads, and follow that all up with decadent desserts.  A great (and easy!) option to help you and your fellow potluck-ers get some veggies onto your plate is to bring a crudite platter with dip.  I like to do a mix of baby carrots, chopped celery, strips of bell peppers and cherry tomatoes, but you could also add in some cucumber slices, broccoli florets or anything else yummy.  For the dip I use 2% plain greek yogurt with an onion soup mix packet….and no one will know it’s not sour cream!
