Anytime you change your eating habits, your lifestyle really, you are going to be forced to get creative, think outside of the box, and try new things.  This has been my favorite part of this journey, and my Thai Cashew Chicken and Zucchini Stir Fry over cauliflower rice is the perfect example of that.

I used vegetables and herbs I wouldn't normally put together, I have NEVER used cashews in cooking (nuts have never really been my thing), and let's talk about using cauliflower for rice!?!  OH!  Did I mention that this Thai Cashew Chicken and Zucchini Stir Fry was ready was ready to eat in 16 MINUTES!?! Yeah, I broke all the rules for this dish, but in the best ways.  I know you're going to love it, and I can't wait to share this one with you so....

Easy Chicken and Rice Soup Recipe

I have always been a long time lover of soup.  There's just something about holding a warm bowl of goodness in your hand during these chilly autumn evenings that soothes the soul.  Another thing I'm starting to realize about soup is that, when you are trying to eat healthy, soup is ALWAYS a great option.  With all the countless combinations, the possibilities are endless.  Today, however, I'm keeping it simple with my Easy Chicken and Rice Soup Recipe.  

Even though this is a simple dish, the flavor is anything but.  With great ingredients, and some adventurous seasoning, this Easy Chicken and Rice Soup is going to blow your mind.  The best part?  Its ready in less that 30 minutes!  I know you are going to love this recipe so let's get started!

You guys, I am in HEAVEN!  The temperature is really dropping and that can only mean one thing...IT'S CHILI SEASON!!!  I actually shared this recipe almost three years ago, in fact, it was the first recipe I every shared with y'all. However, if you go to the original post HERE you will see that it is a HOT MESS.  Therefore, I've decided to revamp my Perfect Chili Recipe for you and re share.

I wish I could take complete credit for this AMAZING (and I do mean AMAZING) chili recipe, but I can't.  My husband is actually the one who taught me the foundation of it and overtime I have tweaked it to become, seriously...perfection.  I KNOW you are going to love it and I can't wait to re share it with you so...

Chicken Sausage and Kale over Rice Recipe

*This post contains affiliate links*

When I began to change my eating habits, one of the biggest hurdles I faced was those nights when I didn't feel like cooking a big meal.  Usually I would throw in a frozen pizza or order out, but it's not that simple when you're eating healthy.  So one night I LITERALLY tossed together some stuff in a pan, and my Chicken Sausage and Kale over Rice was born!

The key is finding that one ingredient, usually a protein, that can be cooked quickly, but is full of flavor.  For me it's having chicken sausage on hand at all times.  It's an easy, lean, protein that goes with anything.  I know you're going to love this meal, so...

Crock pot Chicken and Kale Soup Recipe

So the other day time got away from me, and I realized that I hadn't really thought dinner through.  I was on a 10 day detox, so my options were limited.  That's when I went to the fridge to see what I had on hand.  Some veg, some greens, veggie broth, and frozen chicken.  Oh yeah, I am totally making Crockpot Chicken and Kale Soup.
