If you're craving a smoothie that will make you feel like you're on a Hawaiian vacation (even if you're actually just sitting at your desk like I am), then this Greeña Colada Smoothie is the one for you! It's full of tropical flavors like pineapple and coconut but it's doesn't come with the same hangover or sugar spike you'd get from ordering a blended Piña by the pool! Like all of the smoothies you'll find around here, it's packed with healthy ingredients that are going to keep you full and satisfied for hours, so you don't spend your morning distracted by an unnecessary snack attack. Make it once and you'll be totally hooked!
If you asked me the number one message I get in my instagram DMs on a weekly basis, it would be "I want to get into nutrition and am overwhelmed by the different programs out there. Where did you go to school and would you recommend it?" After writing out lengthy responses every week, I figured it was time for a full blog post on the subject. Because just a few years ago I was in that exact same place, knowing that I wanted to work in nutrition and having no idea how to get there. I did a ton of research, talked to friends and acquaintances who were in the nutrition / dietitian world, and finally found a program that made sense for me. I'll share my story with you and also some input from my nutritionist & RD friends about their programs, which will hopefully help you on your path!
With Mother's Day coming up this weekend, it felt like the perfect time to share my Mom's famous kale salad recipe. My mom has always been the queen of effortlessly throwing together a quick and healthy meal. She never really measures and just adds a little bit of this and a little bit of that and whatever she's making always manages to turn out so fresh and delicious. I learned how to cook just by watching her do her thing in the kitchen, and her easy, breezy, no-fuss style of cooking has always been a huge inspiration for Weeknight Bite (thanks, Mom!). When we cook together, it's a time for us to relax, chat, gossip, and laugh, and I love that shooting this recipe together really captured the two of us in our element!
The theme of this blog post pretty much describes exactly what Weeknight Bite was all about when it first started out - quick and easy weeknight dinners that you can make with just a few ingredients and in a matter of minutes. That's really my favorite way of cooking, and because I tend to get in a routine where I make the same recipes over and over, I get super excited to discover new recipes from my favorite bloggers that help make weeknight cooking a total breeze and also liven up dinnertime a bit! So today, with the help of 4 of my favorite bloggers, I'm sharing a round-up of 5 Quick & Easy Weeknight Meals with 10 Ingredients or Less. Here we go!
If you only have 15 minutes to throw together a weeknight dinner, then you've got more than enough time to whip up these Sheet-Pan Shrimp Fajitas, my friends. This recipe really couldn't be easier - you just toss sliced bell peppers and onions on a sheet pan with some shrimp, drizzle with avocado oil, season with taco seasoning, and throw it all in the oven for 8 minutes or so. Easy as could be! Then you'll serve it with some charred tortillas, your favorite salsa or guac, and you'll be so pumped about your delicious fajita night that just happened to come together in a matter of minutes. Oh and if you line your sheet pan with parchment paper, then clean-up will be a total breeze, too, and you can spend the rest of your night binge-watching Game of Thrones or doing something much more fun than dish duty!
