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

Herb-Crusted Pork Loin Roast

Lately, I’ve been having an internal debate with every meal I make.  Is this good enough for the blog?  Is it even worth sharing?  How many people actually want to eat this?

As a blogger that primarily focuses my energy on food and making tasty, yet healthy, things for you to eat, I’m running into a slight problem with most of my meals:

I have little time and not a lot of creative energy left in the tank at the moment. Herb-Crusted Pork Loin Roast | Life Healthfully Lived Continue reading

Ratatouille Redo

I’ve noticed the recipes I keep coming back to are traditionally peasant meals. Kitchari, cabbage rolls, shakshuka, any casserole, and ratatouille.  All simple meals with simple ingredients meant to fill and nourish bodies.  They aren’t particularly fancy and you won’t see them featured in their traditional forms on high-end menus.

But that doesn’t mean they aren’t delicious and shouldn’t be eaten all the time.

There is something so satisfying by using staple ingredients like tomato sauce or eggs and creating a meal you know makes people happy.  Which is exactly what I was looking for in dinner a few weeks ago. Ratatouille Redo | Life Healthfully Lived Continue reading

Chef Free Meals

I remember when I was younger and learning how to cook, my mom told me, “If you can read, you can cook.”  For the most, she’s right.  As long as you can read a recipe you can hobble together a meal.  Of course, there are fancy techniques and words and recipes that do require a little more know how, but that doesn’t mean you can’t cook. Chef Free Meals | Life Healthfully Lived Continue reading

What I Ate Wednesday: Camping Edition

I haven’t done a What I Ate Wednesday post in a few months and I thought it would be fun to share a day of camp eats with you!  A lot of people (myself included a few years ago) think that camp food revolves around a few main staples.  Grilled meat, big pots of chili, sandwiches, and s’mores.  Sure, those are all easy and great camping meals, but you can cook SO much more outdoors.  Plus, everything tastes just a little better when it’s kissed by a smoky campfire. What I Ate Wednesday: Camping Edition | Life Healthfully Lived Continue reading
