Spaghetti Squash Spaghetti!

One of my newest favorite dishes is spaghetti…but with a much healthier twist using spaghetti squash.  I’m not a huge pasta fan.  I can usually take it or leave it (unless its macaroni & cheese) so whenever I do make a pasta dish, I use a whole wheat pasta to convince myself that I’m eating… Continue reading Spaghetti Squash Spaghetti!

The Healthy Eating Journey Continues

Wow!  It has almost been a full year since my last post.  Even though this year has been a little hectic for me, I still feel a little bit guilty about not posting ANYTHING over the past year!  When I first heard that I would be moving into a residence hall with a community kitchen… Continue reading The Healthy Eating Journey Continues

Black Bean and Avocado Wrap

Cajun Shrimp Pita Pockets

As I mentioned before, I’m all about sandwiches!  To me, they are one of the best ways to satisfy hunger…and add almost any type of seafood and I’m golden.  Seafood has a special place in my heart; I don’t get to eat it often, so it is a special treat.  I decided it’s been long… Continue reading Cajun Shrimp Pita Pockets
