Zucchini & Quinoa Cakes

So, sometimes we’re broke or lazy, or tired, hungry and only have a couple of items in the kitchen. What do we do? Get creative!

I put this recipe together with random items that I found in my kitchen. Join me and experiment with me!

I use chicken bouillon for flavor, but if you’re vegetarian, you can substitute for more seasonings and/or herbs to taste.





– 1/2 zucchini

– 1/4-1/2 cup onion

– 1/2 cup red quinoa

– 1 egg

– grape seed oil


– 2 limes

– grape seed oil

– salt & pepper

– powdered ginger

– cayenne pepper

30-40 minutes. Makes 2 servings


20 minute balanced meal for two

When you get home from work, the last thing you want to do is prepare an elaborate meal, and if you want to eat healthy, fresh produce and meats are your best way to go, but that means lots of prep and cooking time, right? Not necessarily!

In today’s video my husband Fonzy and I will who you how to throw some fresh ingredients together to make a filling, healthy balanced meal in less than 30 minutes!


Summer grilling ideas: stuffed jalapeños, pizza, fish & veggies

Ah, summer… A time for pool parties, vacations and grilling!!

Not only is grilling fun to enjoy with friends and family, it’s also one of the healthiest ways of preparing food! Fat drains off, and you rarely add any oils to grilled foods. Just clean fresh vegetables and proteins. And the best part is, you can make appetizers, snacks and entrees on the grill.

My husband and I love grilling even if it’s only for the two of us, so here are some ideas for your summer cookouts!
