Mango Goat Cheese Salad w. Mustard Vinaigrette Dressing Recipe

This is one of my all-time favorite salads…. EVER.  It might be because it includes mangos and goat cheese, two of my top 5 things to eat, but I swear this salad is fantastic and a crowd pleasure.

Something about the sweetness of the mango combined with the smooth soft flavor of the cheese and then topped with the tartness of the dressing just creates this explosion of yummy goodness in your belly. (more…)


Your Go To Healthy Chicken Cutlet Recipe

In college I was busier than I am now. I had a job, class and an internship and I would literally be running out the door with no time to cook during the week. For an eater like me, this proposed a challenge. How do I eat quality healthy food on the go?! Also, me being hungry is not good for ANYONE.

This is when I came up with a weekly healthy chicken. I would make this chicken every Sunday and keep it in my fridge for salads, sandwiches or dinners on the go.  I have to say it was one of the best ideas I’ve ever had. This chicken has enough flavors that it isn’t bland and at the same time it doesn’t have an overpowering flavor that makes it difficult to pair other ingredients with it.

This is really the chicken that anyone can make and not mess up.  So for all of you who say “I can’t cook”, trust me, try making this and see for yourself that you CAN cook. (more…)

Mixed Greens & Strawberry Summer Salad

I made this for my lunch today, which in turn made me late for work (which happens more than you would think) but I got carried away deciding what would make this salad better and better. Salads can’t really go wrong. You can make it up as you go and end up with the most delicious lunch or side salad just by using the ingredients you have in your kitchen.

This salad is light and refreshing and perfect for summer. You can make it for yourself or triple the recipe for when you have company.


  • 2-3 handfuls of Mixed Greens
  • 4-6 Sun Dried Tomatoes sliced thin
  • 1-2 Tbsp. Slivered Almonds
  • ½ of an Avocado
  • 4-5 Strawberries – halved
  • 5 Cherry Tomatoes – halved
  • 2 Tbsp. crumbled Feta cheese

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and then toss with the dressing (see below)


Combine well.



That’s a Wrap!

Lets Talk Lunch!

It always amazes me how most people who are in the working world eat out for lunch every day. I try to limit myself to going out to eat only once a week. For most people they are either too lazy to make a yummy lunch or will bring a lunch but it will be plain boring and yuck. This wrap is easy, delicious and healthy! It might seem like its small and won’t be enough for lunch, but with everything I put in it, it makes me full without sleeping at my desk like a burger would do to me.

I always buy these ingredients every time I go to the store which is why this is perfect because using crazy condiments you can make it different every day.

This wrap in particular has avocado, “Deli Fresh” Turkey ( 60 calories for 6 pieces), sliced cherry or grape tomatoes, laughing cow cheese spread and a drizzle of Balsamic vinegar in a “Flat Out” wrap (under 100 calories and still delish!


  • 6 pieces of deli fresh turkey or chicken slices
  • A half of an avocado
  • 3 grape tomatoes cut in half
  • One wedge of laughing cow cheese (garlic and herb)
  • A drizzle of balsamic vinegar

This is the step to making the wrap:

  1. Spread laughing cow wedge all over wrap
  2. Smash the avocado on one side of the wrap
  3. Lay the sliced tomatoes on top of the avocado
  4. Drizzle with Balsamic
  5. Lay the turkey slices last
  6. Wrap in tin foil put in your lunch baggy and enjoy later!!!!
