I know a friend who chose the salad over the bag of chips. An hour later, she was hungry and reached for the same bag of chips she avoided earlier. So much for eating healthy. Are you familiar with this scenario? Salads are nutritious and can be filling if we combine them with good fats and protein.
This bacon, egg, and shrimp salad is not only nutritious but it is very satisfying and filling.
The six cute faces you see below, gobble this thing down and always ask for seconds.
Click on this video to see a demonstration of how it is made. It really is a very simple salad. Below are the ingredients. If you decide to try it, come back and let me know how you liked it.
Bacon, Egg & Shrimp Salad

I enjoy cooking. Baking? Not so much. Don’t get me wrong, it is not that I don’t enjoy desserts. On the contrary, I love them, which sometimes get me in trouble, but that is another story for another day. Baking can feel so tedious and leaves little room for mistakes. Have you ever put too much baking soda in a baking recipe before? Don’t ask me how I know, but the end result is disgusting and unfixable-yes that is a word. I accidentally made up this recipe when I decided to significantly reduce my sugar intake. This recipe was birth from sheer desperation for a guilt free treat that would satisfy my sweet tooth and not take a long time to prepare.
If you are lover of coconut, quick recipes, and despise the side effects of eating too much sugar then this is for you. Give it a try and let me know what you think.
1 Minute No Bake Sugar Free Coconut Dessert
2 Tbsp unsweetened coconut chips or shredded coconut
1 tsp Fiber Yum
1/4 tsp cinnamon
Mix all ingredients in a bowl and enjoy!
Ps- it probably will take more time to say the name of the recipe than the time it takes to actually make it. What can I say, I am a word girl.

Figuring out what to make for dinner can prove to be quite a task. A very loooooong time ago, I only had to cook for myself so I rarely cooked. I remember coming home from classes in college and eating a bowl of captain crunch for dinner, boy have we come a long way. Now I have seven people depending on me to prepare dinner for them. I enjoy experimenting and trying new things in the kitchen. Well, most of the time I do, and on those nights that I just can’t get it together, we just crab some frozen Home Run Pizza and pop it in the oven.
As often as I am able, I will try to post meal ideas from what we ate throughout the week. Click on the video below for this week’s meal ideas. I hope you find this helpful. Leave me a comment below, what was your favorite dish you cooked this past week?
Yes, I know, it has been way too long since I posted a recipe on my blog. I am passionate about eating good food…naturally and spiritually. When I first started this blog, I intended to post recipes for both spiritual and physical success. However, life happened and I was not able to be as consistent as I would have liked. If you are subscribed to my YouTube channel you know that as of late, I have started posting more food related videos. I wanted to bring the fun over to my blog so today I want to share this delicious and filling frittata recipe. Click here to watch this video to see how I make it. Oh one more thing, even though my 6 year old son claims the frittata is gross, his actions at the end of the video proves otherwise. Watch, learn and be amused!

I love the versatility of cauliflower but did not care for the MESSY process of ricing the cauliflower for my desired recipes. I had pretty much given up on using cauliflower for making pizza crust and flatbreads and resorted instead to using plantains. I was so excited when I found out my local Trader Joes’ carried riced cauliflower and it is now on the grocery list every week! Below is a simple recipe using this old favorite! Enjoy!
