Egg White Veggie Frittata Muffins

I don’t think it is normal to get as excited as I did about these egg white muffins. But I was so excited to see these babies turn out! This is a recipe I had bookmarked probably about two years ago as something I wanted to make. I am all about eggs, and if you remember from this post, I grew up eating eggs all the time. However, on work mornings, there is no way I have time to make eggs. It’s usually some combination of oatmeal, cereal, fruit and yogurt. So when I saw this recipe, I knew it was something I could…

Whole Wheat Orzo with Brussels Sprouts and Feta

Another quick meal here! On the weekends I’ve been cooking ahead as much as possible. I make sure to have at least one grain on hand, whether it be brown rice or pasta or quinoa. It just makes the busy weekdays that much easier. I had some extra whole wheat orzo pasta pre-cooked (takes about 8 minutes to cook just like normal pasta), and diced up about 10 brussels sprouts. Trick: slice the brussels in 3 slices, instead of in half… it makes them cook faster. I sauteed them only for about 3 or 4 minutes and they were…

When I get busy, recipes go out the window and random concoctions come in. I throw together anything that is fast, easy and healthy. Below are a couple of my recent creations. You’ll see that they usually manifest…

Roasted Yellow Beets

  Man, some pictures of vegetables are just so pretty! I came across these yellow (or orange?) beets in the grocery store and decided to give cooking them a shot. I used to think beets were gross, but somewhere along the way in the last couple of years I have started eating them more often. I usually add them in to my salads at salad bars, and you now see them popping up on a ton of restaurant menus. The thought of buying canned beets doesn’t sound too appetizing, but these colorful fresh beets caught my eye, so I…
