SPINACH SALAD w/ SALMON!

























After watching an episode of Dr. Oz, I decided to make Salmon for dinner last evening. Not just any Salmon; I'm talkin' Belly-Fat-Burnin'-Salmon seasoned with a few spices that will help slim your waist in no time!

What You'll Need:
Salmon fillets
Turmeric (dash)
Oregano (dash)

In addition to these two spices, Dr. Oz recommends adding Cinnamon, Cloves and Cayenne to each meal to help burn belly fat!

I also added some (No Sodium!) Mrs. Dash for additional taste.

I baked my fillets in the oven for 35 minutes at 375.

Once fully cooked, I shredded a few pieces and placed them onto a bed of Spinach leaves. I threw in sliced strawberries and poured a tablespoon of Ken's Honey Balsamic dressing.

An easy, delicious and nutritious meal in less than 1 hour!

Summertime is creeping up on us! Let's get those bellies bikini ready, ladies!

GLUTEN-FREE BANANA SPLIT BREAKFAST BOWL!
























Recently, I have been pinning so much stuff on Paleo & Gluten-Free that it was meant to be when I stumbled across this GLUTEN-FREE BIBLE book at Target. Want to know what's funny? It was nowhere near the book department. It was sitting by its lonesome as if someone changed their mind and threw it on a random shelf.

Yeah, uhm, I'll take that - Thanks!

After I finished my, ahem, Chick-Fil-A dinner, I had the nerve to want some Ice Cream for dessert. I mean, Geez, it was already bad enough that I ate some fast food (in my defense, it was a Grilled Chicken sandwich, so it's totally OK, right? Right?!), but some Rocky Road ice cream was calling my name. I had intentions on heading to the nearest 7-11 to get my fix.

But first, I started to browse through the book and then I saw it....

...the Banana Split Breakfast Bowl.

(Haaaaallelujah!)

You want to know what's even more funny? The fact that I had ALL of the ingredients for this recipe - with the exception of the vanilla yogurt. Greek Nonfat Yogurt will do, and it did..do. ;-)

You see those Dole Pineapple Chunks up there? Yeah, I'm pretty proud of those Chunks, guys. My latest hobby in Couponing got me that can of Pineapples, along with 2 other cans, for less than $1! Yuuuup.

Shortly after realizing that I had everything for this recipe, I instagrammed about it went into the kitchen to get started.

I took a picture of the recipe so that YOU can enjoy this goodness, too.

Enjoy!!

RECIPE: LEMON-GARLIC KALE CHIPS!
























Happy Saturday, folks!

Earlier this week, I made some Kale chips & Sweet Potato chips. Recipe for Sweet Potato chips coming soon!

A week prior, I purchased a huge bag of Kale for juicing and decided I'd try my hand at Kale chips, too. I searched on Pinterest for some recipes and was inspired by these two which are included in my PALEO SNACKS board.

It took me a few days to find the perfect bottle of Coconut Oil, so I was pleased to find a 28 fl. oz. jar of Coconut Oil for $8.29 at Sam's Club. I'm definitely getting my money's worth with this purchase!

What You'll Need:
Kale
Coconut Oil
Sea Salt
Garlic Powder
Lemon

Directions:
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Remove the stems from Kale. Rinse Kale. Pat dry. Add to a bowl. In a small bowl, melt 1 tablespoon of Coconut Oil. Pour onto Kale. Mix with hands. Add a pinch of Sea Salt and Garlic Powder. Squirt with lemon. Spread onto baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes.

My 2-year-old LOVED them! I asked her if she wanted a chip. She ate one and asked for more!


I sipped on a Juice that I had prepped the day prior while I snacked on some Kale chips! So delicious and nutritious.

Enjoy!
