3 ingredient cookies


Saturday, March 18, 2017

My FAVORITE recipes have less than 5 ingredients! As i've stated before, the less ingredients the more inclined the recipe is to be CLEAN and EASY. I've given up sugar for 40 days. Desserts are my one true weakness so giving up refined sugar always proves difficult. I'm able to sustain by finding substitutes for sugar overall, mainly ...

Roasted Beet “Candy”


Tuesday, December 20, 2016

Literally 3 ingredients. A lunch dish or a side piece these beets will have you beating with a new drum. Historically I've never been a fan of beets, my father prepared them from a can, boiled and thickened with flour. Horrific. As an adult I thought they tasted like dirt, while not entirely untrue - that earthy taste ...

Interesting Oats


Wednesday, November 23, 2016

I grew up eating oatmeal. Usually Quaker oats "minute" oatmeal, must add LOTS of sugar, butter and or whole milk. Those days are long gone. My dad made the oatmeal soupy, I suppose to stretch the breakfast on cold winter mornings as thin as possible. I hate soupy oatmeal, enter - me not eating oatmeal for ...

Spring Roll #formation


Friday, September 9, 2016

Preparing Asian inspired food intimidates me, but I love it. Spring rolls are near the top of the list, prepared in any way but very specifically when eaten raw, they leave a fresh and light feeling of fullness. Depending on the ingredients used you can really focus on the flavors and not the packaging. Obviously I love ...

Office Snacking: Nature Box


Thursday, September 1, 2016

If you're reading this, you probably have a problem. It could be with sweets, it could be with salt, but it's probably the combination of both and eating too much of either at the wrong time. I consistently prepare my own snacks by either pre-packing fruits, nuts and vegetables OR baking something healthy enough to pass as ...

Grilled Cheese Tomatoes


Monday, August 15, 2016

Grilled cheese, hold the bread! USUALLY on Saturdays I wake up with a craving for pancakes or something smothered in jelly or honey - then I act accordingly and make my favorite smoothie. There are the RARE occasions I yearn for a savory approach to breakfast and I usually scramble and spice eggs to scratch that itch, but this ...

Arugula: Roberta’s first “harvest”


Sunday, July 10, 2016

The Roberta Show's first "harvest". Clean eating at it's finest. Arugula is an excellent source of fiber, vitamins A, C (for the immune system), and K (bone strength). (Added bonuses folate, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and manganese.) I planted a pack of $1.89 Arugula seeds on May 5th. By July 5th here's what happened.   Basically in 2 months I had ...

Banana Choco Protein Bites


Sunday, June 26, 2016

Forever in search of the perfect "healthy - but satisfying" snack, I struggle with selection just like everyone else. The worst foods are the easiest accessible and also CHEAP. The strongest muscle I have against my cravings is my mind and I'll admit - I don't always win - i'm the MVP of justification. I came across a super easy solution that also promotes a ...
