Chicken and Veggie Quesadillas

Posted by on Monday, 28 February, 2011

I’ve always liked quesadillas so I tried to make them myself. Holy Cow man, are these babies good. They’re fully jacked up with lots of veggies and shredded chicken that I can barely eat a full one.

Throw some chicken in a crock pot and let it do its thing for about 5 hours. I usually put a whole pound in there and have leftovers because this recipe calls for 6 oz. You can use more, it’ll just be meaty 🙂

In a skillet pan toss in:

1/2 chopped onion
1/2 chopped organic red pepper
1 TBSP Coconut oil
1/4 … Read the rest

Vegetable Panang Curry with Beef

Posted by on Monday, 31 January, 2011

Curry is an essential during the winter months in Wisconsin.  This one I made up is sure to warm you and fill your tummy at the same time.  I usually use whatever veggies I have laying around and the same goes with meat. If you have fresh thai basil or lime leaves be sure to add it, but even this basic combo tastes excellent. This recipe is spicy, but not overwhelmingly so and I love that you can taste the flavor of each vegetable. I’ve tried this dish wish shrimp and chicken before and to be honest, they are all … Read the rest

Healthy Egg Mess

Posted by on Monday, 22 November, 2010

Saying I love eggs doesn’t really express how much I, in truth, love them.  I eat them raw, hard boiled, scrambled, sunny side up — you name it.  Here is a simple and easy omelet-type healthy breakfast recipe.  It leaves me feeling full and with energy for the rest of my day.  This is a simple way to get some nutrients from veggies.  I’m too messy to actually make a perfect omelet so I just call this deliciousness my “egg mess.”

This makes enough for 2.

3 organic free range eggs
1/4 cup chopped onions
4 or 5 sliced mushrooms… Read the rest

Thai Inspired Chicken with Summer Vegetables

Posted by on Sunday, 27 June, 2010

The most time consuming part of this recipe is slicing the chicken, but it goes pretty quick if you use a sharp knife. This is one of my favorite things to make in the summer because it is light, relatively easy, and surprisingly flavorful. I would have to say it does not smell the best while cooking, but don’t let that deter you.

1 Tbsp coconut oil
1/2 large white onion roughly chopped
1 red, yellow, or orange pepper cut in chunks
2 Tbsp raw sugar
4 Tbsp high quality fish sauce
1.5 to 2 pounds chicken sliced in bite … Read the rest
