But let’s put the naming difficulties aside. This Fried Quinoa with Chicken is King of Leftover Land.  Continue reading

[I made this roasted organic chicken and turned it into 5 meals for Earth Fare!] 

To me, the work week can kind of feel like you’re being sucked into a tornado. 

A whirlwind of alarm clocks, papers and miscellaneous items flying everywhere, and general mayhem. Until you land on Saturday morning and don’t know exactly what happened. 


I work full time at a non-food related office job, and I know it can be challenging to get something healthy on the table on those crazy week nights. Continue reading
