I did a bad bad thing. I computed calories in sausage lasagna. It was ugly.
So I decided to substitute thinly sliced vegetables for noodles and cottage cheese for the ricotta in an effort to appease my pants that are currently revolting in a constricting manner.
I had my doubts but it really is quite scrumptious. I’m not too sad about the decrease in time spent on the elliptical either. [Read more…]

I wanted to make a healthy salad friday for girls’ night. After raiding my fridge I had gathered grapes, almonds, and rotiserrie chicken leftovers from the Spicy Tortilla Soup. Paired with a balsamic vinaigrette the resulting salad was a huge hit.
1 bundle red leaf lettuce
Cut the lettuce and toss with halved grapes, sliced almonds, and chicken.
Drizzle with balsamic vinaigrette.
1/2 C balsamic vinegar
1/4 C sugar
3 garlic cloves
1/4 C red wine vinegar
1/3 C olive oil
Blend until combined with a pinch of salt & pepper.

Brussel Sprouts are one of my favorite side dishes and I always love watching guest’s faces when I announce that they are on the menu. I don’t know why everyone thinks they are so gross but I am glad when they taste mine they change their minds.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Cut the brussel sprouts in half and line them up on a baking sheet lined with foil. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt, and roast for roughly 20 minutes. The roasting time depends on the size of your sprouts so try to make them uniform and look for the outer leave to turn a golden brown. You can eat as is but sometimes I like to squeeze some lemon juice over top.
