It’s the homestretch of February. Just a little bit longer to celebrate Leap Day and then we will jump into March. Although it’s been unseasonably warm for so many areas, we are still enjoying some delicious comfort food made healthy.

Here’s a round up of what’s been cooking in our kitchen lately.

Love this easy to prepare Slow Cooker Chicken Black Bean and Quinoa Stew. It's healthy and was a hit with everyone in our family. Great dinner recipe!

Favorite meal of the week~ Chicken, quinoa and black bean stew. (source)


  • Slow Cooker Chicken, Black Bean and Quinoa Stew. So, so good. It makes a lot so we will have another meal down the road coming straight from the freezer. {recipe}
  • Spicy Shrimp with Yogurt. One of the fastest weeknight dinners you can make. {recipe}
  • Baked Haddock. This white fish is the gateway fish to getting your kids to try something that swims. One of our’s really didn’t like fish and he actually ate the whole meal. We tried not to make a big deal at the time but it was so exciting to see some open-mindedness happening! I used this recipe, but swapped out yogurt for the mayonnaise and omitted the hot sauce.
  • This recipe is on deck for this week: Spicy Red Pasta with Lentils. After finding the last winning lentil recipe, I’m game to try out another one.
Healthy Tuna Stuffed Avocado

Healthy and energizing lunch {source}


  • Greek Yogurt with flax and honey
  • Protein Power Goddess Bowl {recipe}
  • Fried eggs cooked over avocado oil. So good on a cold day.
  • Avocado with tuna salad on top. Both paleo and Whole30 approved recipe. This is my new go-to before heading off to tennis. {recipe}


  • Apple Pie Oatmeal. I already made this twice this week because it was so yummy and requested by my 5 year old. {recipe}
  • Overnight oatmeal with almond milk. Ready to go when we need to grab something quick!


  • Gym Rat Smoothie (just one of the many delicious smoothie recipes from the Oh She Glows cookbook)
  • Dark Chocolate covered Apple Slices. Warning-you won’t want to share these. {recipe}
Snack time favorite recipe- healthy candy apple wedges with paleo dark chocolate.

A taste of chocolate everyday is a good thing. {source}

 So tell me, what will you make first? Have a wonderful week ahead. Happy cooking.
