Today, I've got a Banana Oat Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie and 10 Wellness Life Hacks for Moms that will help get you on a healthier track. As a mom of four boys, three of whom are now in college, I've learned a lot over the years. Being a mom can be one of the most rewarding experiences, and at the same time, one of the most under-appreciated jobs around. Although my older three boys took a lot for granted when they were living at home, I know they now really appreciate everything I … [Continue Reading...]

Try this Smashed Avocado Miso Toast with Poached Egg and Furikake for breakfast or brunch - it's deliciously simple. Have you heard of furikake? This summer, our family celebrated the graduation of our twin boys in Hawaii, one of our favorite places to vacation. It's a long trip from the East Coast, but no one ever complains about traveling across the country to hang out by the blue waters of Hawaii. During our stay, we ate out almost every night, and furikake seemed to be used on … [Continue Reading...]

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Cookies for Cancer © Jeanette's Healthy Living

These Gluten-Free Pumpkin Spice Cookies are full of sugar, spice and everything nice. Today, I'm baking a difference to help raise awareness about childhood cancer.  Did you know that cancer is the number one cause of death by disease of children in the U.S.? Even so, less than 4% of the National Cancer Institute's budget goes to all childhood cancers combined. Cookies for Kids' Cancer, a non-profit organization, raises funds for research to develop new, improved treatments for pediatric … [Continue Reading...]

Enjoy this Greek Style Edamame Kale Zucchini Salad for a lunch or dinner. Top with a poached egg or hard boiled egg for added protein. Dinners have been really quiet the past few days, with just our youngest son at home. We dropped our three older boys off at college in a span of a week. Although I've gotten used to having my oldest son away (he's a senior in college this year), I'm still adjusting to the twins being away at the same time. It's been a tough couple of days trying to … [Continue Reading...]

Transitions and The Next Stage of Life

I knew this day would come. But I still wasn't ready. Just over a week ago, we were swimming and snorkeling in the blue waters of Hawaii, all six of us ~ my four boys, my husband and me. And now, just three of us are left at home staring at each other. It seems so surreal, kind of like the watching the sunrise at Haleakala Crater on Maui where we sat perched above the clouds in the freezing cold to catch the first glimpse of the sun just two weeks ago. For the past few weeks, one … [Continue Reading...]

There's nothing more American in the summertime than barbecue chicken, and this Grilled Brined Chicken with Homemade Barbecue Sauce takes barbecue chicken to a whole new level. Smoky and sweet, this sauce is finger licking good, and the brined chicken is juicy and tender. Recently, we had the pleasure of hosting my husband's cousin and niece from Taiwan for a week.

This Spice Rubbed Roasted Salmon is quick and easy and perfect for any night. I love spice rubs for quick and easy dinners. You might have seen my Spice Rubbed Grilled Chicken Wings a few weeks ago.

Thai Barbecue Chicken Recipe

Thai Barbecue Coconut Red Curry Chicken © Jeanette's Healthy Living

It's been sweltering the last couple of days but I have to say, after such a long and cold winter, I really don't mind the heat. Grilling even in the hot weather doesn't bother me. As the summer rolls along, I've had to switch things up so that chicken, night after night, doesn't get old. Although I do like to grill fish and shrimp, and the occasional steak, it costs a lot more than chicken to feed my family. So, I rely on chicken on the bone or boneless chicken breasts that I cut in half … [Continue Reading...]
