I have some good news, some bad news, and then some more good news about this recipe.

I tried it for the first time a few weeks ago, and I went ahead and calculated the calories. (For the record, counting calories isn’t something I do all the time. In fact, it’s not something I do most of the time. You can see all the pros and cons of calorie counting here.)

The number I came up with was surprisingly low.

That works great for me and MY current goals...

Taco Tuesday is a real thing at our house.

I’d be happy with a Taco Wednesday, Taco Thursday, Friday, Saturday… you get the picture.

I never get tired of it. So, naturally, I found a way to make a lean meat into a tender, from scratch filling for every Mexican dish possible.

Now I can have it as often as I want, even when I’m trying to be a little more strict with my meals.

Give it a try and let me know what you think!

Everyone needs a quick throw-together recipe in their back pocket for when life happens.

For me, I have tacos (which I could eat always), and this recipe.

How I Use It

This past week was nuts.

Several activities for the kids, the adults were down with colds, guests coming from out of town, appointments, sessions, and deadlines, oh my.

It was so crazy I didn’t ever get to sit down to plan my meals for the week, so they were all decided on the spur of t...

Some recipes are just easy for getting in the right amount of carbs (as well as the other macronutrients).

Like this one, which happens to be a family favorite.

A Family Matter

Several years ago we found out our son was allergic to dairy and eggs. He eventually outgrew it, but we learned a lot in that phase of life about paying even more attention to what we’re eating.

(Preventing a painful, dangerous allergic reaction for your child can be very moti...

Most of us are fully aware pizza isn’t something you should eat all the time. But pizza night isn’t going away anytime soon.

This recipe is a better option than what you’d pick up at a restaurant. 

The Problems with Pizza

Pizza is a favorite in our house. In fact, Seth has come a long way from his frozen pizza bachelor days, and he’s now a bit of a pizza snob.

But let’s face it, there are two main problems with almost any kind of pizza:

1. Calories

Typical “healthified” treats and desserts just aren’t satisfying and never taste like the real thing.

I don’t know, I guess I just like butter, sugar, and flour.

Sometimes, though, your normal indulgences have to take a backseat when your diet has other priorities. But that doesn’t stop you from wanting something sweet.

For me, I’ve found this super simple recipe does a good job of filling that void when needed.

To Be Honest…

It’s hardly even a recipe...

This is a recipe to save you from all those other dry chicken breast recipes you’ve felt compelled to eat when trying to lose weight.

Why I Like It

Too many weight loss diets make you eat too much friggin’ chicken. It quickly gets to the point where you’re just over it.

I’ve been at a place in my life (more than once) where, instead of eating another dry chicken breast, I’d rather eat the plate it’s sitting on.

It sucks because when it comes to low c...

Snacking while watching football is a must, but the typical choices aren’t always the best.

That’s why we compiled a few recipes to try during playoff season.

Bake Your Wings

It’s a no brainer, eat your wings, just bake them.

This recipe uses a marinade to keep the wings moist on the inside, and then baking them significantly reduces the calories from unhealthy fats while keeping that crisp, delicious flavor on the outside.

Eggnog: you either love it (in which case, read on) or you’re totally grossed out by it (in which case, you’re wrong, so read on anyway).

Making your own with fresh ingredients can be a great way to add quality nutrients to your diet, and it tastes way better than what you buy at the store.

The calorie and nutritional difference may only vary slightly, but you’ll be getting better ingredients, less additives, and a slightly better nutritional profi...

We often tell you it’s ok to keep treats in your diet.

It’s time to put our money where our mouth is — which is on these delicious cookies.

They aren’t low calorie. They aren’t low sugar, or gluten free, or sprinkled with the dandruff of a thousand vegan unicorns.

They’re chocolate chip cookies, biatch.

Why This Recipe

I’ve been making cookies since I was old enough to use the oven. I made them so often that my uncle would heckle me if I visited witho...
