Cooking to Live

I am a soon-to-be bride looking to change not only the way my fiance and I eat daily, but our views on food as a whole. Would love to compile a "cookbook" full of wonderful, great tasting, healthy dishes to use in the future :-)

Very Good 4.5/5
(2 ratings)

My wife came up with this on the fly. This recipe does not count for toppings or tortillas. We served on corn tortilla's, with low fat cheddar cheese and avocado. You can also but a bit of sour cream on top if that's your thing. The jerk seasoning is 0 cal at 1/4 tsp, you use 2 tbsp so there is probably calorie considerations, but it is minimal. One serving should be enough for 3 tortillas.

Balsamic Glazed Cracked Pepper Salmon - Clean Eating
Very Good 4.4/5
(31 ratings)

This recipe is super easy, quick, delicious AND qualifies as a Clean Eating meal.

I've made this recipe twice in the past week and my super picky husband has cleaned his plate both times! I usually serve it with brown rice and a vegetable.

My personal notes on this dish...less is more. Add the vinegar/honey mixture in a little bit at a time - you don't want your salmon swimming in it, just coated in it. The balsamic vinegar will darken the color of the salmon, so you may think it's done or burning, but it's probably just discolored. I like to cook my salmon until it is very firm and it has an almost hard glaze to the outside. Cook it for a minute or two longer than you think you need to!

Also, for the red pepper flakes, less is more again! I love the flavor of red pepper flakes and honey {I even eat that mixture on my chicken nuggets} remember, you can always add more, but you can't take it away!

Enjoy!

Grilled Cheese Pizza Sandwich
Very Good 4.3/5

This tastes just like cheese pizza! Pair this with a salad and you have a great pizzeria style lunch without the calories attached--or the bill.
