Steak & Asparagus Wraps with Mustard Balsamic Reduction

I love it when a recipe turns out way better than you planned.  I also love it when a recipe looks pretty and pictures are really simple.  That doesn’t always happen with food (especially anything made in a crockpot) and it makes my life easier when food is pretty.

As you know, I am all about simple things in this season of my life.  Traveling, working outside of the home, training to be a nutrition coach, and trying to spend SOME quality time with my husband all demand my time and attention.  Creating elaborate meals is not at the top of my list. Steak & Asparagus Wraps | Life Healthfully Lived Continue reading

Herb & Garlic Chicken Thighs


Even though I publicly professed my approval of chicken boobs a while back, I will never let go of my love of chicken thighs.  They are delicious, pretty cheap, and no matter how you cook them, they stay nice and juicy.

My usual plan of attack when it comes to chicken thighs?  Make them in the Instant Pot and just change up the flavors I add to keep things simple but interesting/tasty.  Which if you follow me on Instagram, you’ve seen the endless parade of shredded chicken bowls.

Sorry, I’m not sorry.  Herb & Garlic Chicken Thighs | Life Healthfully Lived Continue reading

Make Ahead Meals

Happy Monday!  I’m all sorts of in a good mood thanks to the beautiful weather we’ve been enjoying lately.  Spring has sprung round these parts and it’s here in full force.  Trees are budding, grass is green, flowers are blooming, and bugs are back.

Hey, not everything about spring can be sunshine and rainbows.

Mashed Avocado Lamb + Turkey Burgers

I very rarely get a craving for a burger.  Like, it really never happens.  I’m not actually a huge beef fan.  I don’t know why, but the flavor has just never appealed to me.  But strangely enough the other day, I had a craving for a burger on the grill.  While I couldn’t make the grill part a reality (8th-floor apartment + no outdoor access + WINTER), I could make a burger happen. Mashed Avocado Lamb & Turkey Burgers | Life Healthfully Lived Continue reading

Oldies but Goodies

I am AWFUL at updating my recipe page.  Which is a shame because that makes it really hard to find all the tasty things that I post on the blog.  But every now and then I finally get my act together and update the page.

Often that involves going back months and months to find everything I made so I don’t forget anything.  It’s time-consuming, which it wouldn’t be if I just updated it regularly like an adult.

But what fun would that be? Oldies but Goodies | Life Healthfully Lived Continue reading
