Happy National Hummus Day! Hummus is not something we need to reserve only for dipping so, let’s celebrate it’s versatility all year long. While I already posted an extremely quick and easy Zucchini Rollatini this past Tuesday that anyone can celebrate with, today’s dish a tad more sophisticated. I had recipe tested both a few times and couldn’t resist sharing each of them with you for this fun foodie holiday! The sophistication doesn’t mean a beginner cook cannot make this recipe, though. It takes a bit longer to prepare with the easy steps below, but since it can be made ahead of time and served cold, that shouldn’t be a problem for any summer party! Continue reading

Happy Earth Day! ๐ŸŒ

I don’t discuss it enough here on Eat Real Live Well, but supporting our environment is an extremely important part of my everyday life. I truly believe that we make hundreds of decisions each week that influence the future of global health. Minimizing food waste is a recurring decision! 20 pounds of food per person per month are wasted in the US, so not only are we wasting our money, but also filling landfills with nutritious food. The Recipe Redux was on my wavelength this Earth Day, so after you see my recipe below, hit the link to see how the rest of this healthy blogger network suggests we reduce food waste!

PB Banana Mocha S’mores Waffles

On Sunday’s in the Jones household, we almost always have pancakes or waffles. When I was first thinking about what I would make with my coffee concentrate(no, it’s not just to make easier cold-brew coffee), crepes came to mind, but I am not a pro at those and, honestly, would you have actually used my recipe and madeย crepes?!ย Probably not. So, waffles came to mind, and now I have this fun recipe to share with you!

Easy Pantry Dinner: Italian Broccoli, Barley and Beans

When I first saw the theme for this month’s Recipe Redux challenge, I was pretty excited. I love educating my clients and audiences on how make a quick “emergency” meal with pantry and freezer staples. The theme is

“Spring Clean Your Kitchen”

Use at least 3 ingredients that are actually in your refrigerator or pantry right now. Try not to go to the store to buy anything new…”


The way this challenge panned out for me couldn’t have been any more perfect. I completely forgot about it and I am typing this up a half hour after coming up with my idea, cooking it, loving it, and packing it for Tim for lunch tomorrow! Continue reading
