Lentil Tacos

I’m sorry it’s taken me so long to share this delicious recipe with you. Tim and I have been eating these easy lentil tacos for years, but I suppose it’s better to let you in on the recipe now than never!

I love fish tacos, and black bean tacos, and there’s plenty of other tacos, too. But, why lentils? Continue reading

What I Ate Wednesday – Nauseous Pregnancy Edition

While I’ve shared it with my social media followers, I’m just now realizing this is my first time sharing my news with my blog viewers! I think the title of this post tells it all, but with tomorrow marking 18 weeks of pregnancy, it also marks almost 13 weeks of around the clock nausea.

Sheet Pan Tofu Stir Fry

Sheet pan recipes are taking over the blog world and for good reason! They not only make weeknight dinners much easier in terms of the cooking process, but also in terms of clean-up. All you need to clean is the cutting board, knife, a bowl and the baking sheet. No pots or pans or multiple cookware items.

The Easiest Fluffiest Pancakes

Disclosure: Nature Nate’s Honey is a current client of mine during National Honey Month. 


This past Sunday Tim and I headed to the kitchen for breakfast and started to grab ingredients for my buckwheat pancakes. The issue? No buckwheat flour. Tim of course wanted to head to the grocery store for just that, but with about 8 other types of flour in the pantry, I wasn’t about to let that happen.  Continue reading

Toast Toppings to Fuel Your Fitness

Toast is quick, fits in anytime of day, and is super versatile. Breakfast, snack, lunch, or dinner, sometimes it just hits the spot! With the fabulous #ToastTuesday trend I thought I’d share some of my favorite ways to enjoy it, along with when you might want to enjoy each combo. The “trend” obviously isn’t the old boring toast you’re used to. Warmed fluffy (mostly) sprouted grain bread with a slight crisp and delicious toppings may be a better description of what I’m sharing today (along with creative recipe ideas from some other dietitians and healthy food bloggers). If you’re thinking “sprouted whaaaat?”, have no idea what kind of bread to buy, or still think “carbs are bad“, check out this post on how to choose nutritious bread. And no whining if you’re gluten-free! I have a whole category for you at the bottom!

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! 🌏

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!

Quinoa and White Bean Salad
