{greek tuna salad}

Happy Hump Day homies! Trying to get back into posting at least one recipe per week. To be honest, I’ve got so many to share….I could post 2 per week. As requested – next week will be the pasta bake that I made Sunday. Stay tuned.

If you’re looking for a new healthy + fresh salad to add to your rotation – I got you boo!

This salad is great for meal prepping lunches too! It saves for about 3 days.

Two misconceptions about canned tuna:

  1. Canned tuna doesn’t have to be boring!
  2. Tuna doesn’t need mayo. Believe it or not!

And I’m sharing a recipe today to prove it!

{shrimp + pineapple fried rice}

Hi friends! It’s been a while since I’ve shared a recipe on here. So, I wanted to change that STAT!

This coming Saturday is Chinese New Year. And you know that I’m all about celebrating ALL THE THINGS. Holidays are kinda my thing! We like to go all out. Big or small. Holiday or not. Typically we celebrate with one main thing…….

FOOD!

Bay and I wanted to put a fun + healthy spin on one of your very favorite Chinese dishes. Fried rice. If Bay could eat fried rice every day, she 100% would. Ha! Since it’s the new year and everyone, inducing myself, seem to be on the clean eating train. I am currently on week #2 of the Kaia Fit 30-day Jump-start program. Which is very clean eating.

My wheels started turning and I decided to whip up on of my favorite healthy rice dishes. Shrimp + Pineapple Fried Rice using Hinode Calrose Brown Rice. Grown in U.S.A. Non GMO. Gluten Free. Heart healthy.

You can find a variety of Hinode rice at Walmart + Nugget Market.

Before we get started on the recipe, I wanted to chat a little more about Chinese New Year.

I can’t remember the last time I shared a weekend notes. To be honest, our weekends have been pretty chill. We’re mastering the art of the homebody. Ha! It’s pretty amazing.
