3-Ingredient Maple Thyme Salmon (in the Toaster Oven!)

3-Ingredient Maple Thyme Salmon (in the Toaster Oven!)

Earlier this week when I was in New York visiting family and friends, my mom prepared the most delicious salmon.

It consisted of only 3 ingredients and she baked it in the toaster oven which took way faster than using a regular-sized oven. 

Because of its smaller size, the toaster oven cooks the salmon much faster which means that dinner is on the table in just minutes!

Easy Oven-Baked Burgers

Easy Oven-Baked Burgers

These burgers are SO ridiculously good (and EASY) that they make a regular appearance in my weekly food prep sessions. The seasoning (which I am obsessed with and got from Mark's Daily Apple) is so spot on that the burgers taste amazing as is, even without any toppings.

Salad-in-a-Jar

Salad-in-a-Jar

I wish I had come up with this idea...it is absolutely brilliant! I've seen Salads-in-a-Jar all over Facebook and Pinterest and since I love any excuse to use my mason jars, I knew it was just a matter of time before I hopped on the bandwagon. The beauty about using mason jars instead of your usual container is that the design of the jar makes it possible to layer the salad so the ingredients stay separate until it's time to eat. No more soggy lettuce! Plus, mason jars don't leak so you can throw this in your bag and not have to worry about making a mess.

My Favorite Way to Cook Chicken

My Favorite Way to Cook Chicken

Cooking meat at home is relatively new for me. I used to eat mostly vegetarian at home and satisfy my carnivorous cravings when I ate out so someone else could cook the meat for me. My constantly evolving journey of figuring out what types of food best support my health (from mostly vegetarian, to mostly raw, to mostly vegan, to mostly gluten-free, to mostly sugar-free) has most recently landed me in the land of the Paleo Diet (though I hate calling it a diet, because it's really more of a lifestyle)
