Low carb chicken zucchini enchilada bake with layers upon layers of creamy, flavorful goodness: Refried beans, cheese, chicken, zucchini and a homemade enchilada sauce!

Zucchini party should be a legit thing that people have. You get together with all your friends who have a zucchini surplus, make various zucchini recipes and walk aways with different delicious meals.

Only suggesting this because readers are often emailing me asking what to do with their zucchini. I’m not sure if you guys are buying it in bulk or what, but there’s my suggestion for you: an epic #zucchiniparty.

Healthy chicken pot pie — made with  a comforting homemade whole grain flaky crust and an amazing sauce made with almond milk & chicken broth instead of butter and cream!

When you’re going all the time, sometimes it’s hard to catch your breath and take in the beautiful things surrounding you. And my oh my, there are so many wonderful things to appreciate. People, different cultures, talents, successes (others and my own), the changing seasons, a comfortable bed to sleep in, the unconditional love I feel for my fiancé.

The world is changing. Right before our eyes. And at an epic speed that sometimes feels out of control and helpless. Read more.

Last Saturday (1/21/17) was a day that I’ll never forget. Most of you already know that Tony proposed (and that I said yes!) but I wanted to write out not only our engagement story, but our love story right here, so that I could keep it forever.

Hi guys! How are you on this glorious Friday? I’m so excited to be officially back with my weekend favorites. As you’ve probably realized, it’s been a completely insane past few months so I had to stop doing them for a while, but I’m happy that I’m trying to get back into a regular blogging routine. It’s always fun to save my favorite posts and share them with you on Fridays.

Actually my hope is to do a completely photobomb of my life lately on the blog soon. But for now this purple sweet potato will have to do. You can catch how I made it on my Instagram.

Have you guys been to my friend Liz’s site yet? She’s a mama of two who blogs about healthy authentic food with global flavors. I freaking love her because she’s the real deal in every way; Liz tells it how it is and keeps herself authentic and real. We’ve been friends for years and every single time we’re together we giggle over the most ridiculous things (including that one time she had someone deliver Buffalo Wild Wings to my hotel room).

Thank you SO much for all of your comments, touching thoughts and prayers on my last wellness post. Your support is like a breath of fresh air as my heart longs for compassion and understanding. Often these posts are much easier to write then they are to say, because saying them makes it true and real, and all the things bubble up to the surface that you never knew hurt so much.

So here we are: Part Two of my Wellness Story. Part two of me just laying it all out there. Writing nonsensically because it makes sense to me.

Outrageously delicious & healthy sweet potato BBQ turkey meatloaf stuffed with sharp cheddar cheese. Easy to make and bound to become a dinner staple!

This weekend was rejuvenating in the best way. I slept in on Saturday, sipped on my hot morning coffee with vanilla almond milk, enjoyed an RXBar, then left for an intense workout. Afterwards I came home with a mission to get organized and just spend some time alone. Can I just say how freakin’ good it felt?!

Kale waldorf salad with chopped chicken breast, avocado, goat cheese, tart cranberries, apples and crunchy toasted walnuts. Tossed in an easy light balsamic vinaigrette for the most delicious healthy lunch or dinner.

Of course my first recipe of 2017 is bound to be a salad. Hashtag #typical?

To be completely honest with you, I don’t eat as many salads as I used to. I remember when I basically lived at the Whole Foods salad bar for lunch and dinner. My memories of the salad bar are fond; the cajun roasted sweet potatoes, sesame broccoli and detox kale salad tasted like pure gold after a workout.
