Yesterday I got around to updating my "Guide to Eating Healthier" page! Maybe I'm more excited than you will be. I most likely am, but I wanted to make sure and tell everyone anyways. I feel that I have a good combination of both healthy, homey, & junky recipes on my website, as I am human and some days just need sugar. Or chocolate. Or a big 'ol bowl of baked potato soup with sour cream, cheese, bacon, and a slice of white bread. BUT despite some of my cravings, I try really hard to feed my husband and myself healthy meals and snacks. I have done a lot of research and feel compelled to share it. So here you go! I hope you find some helpful information! Here's the link to my page: Guide to Eating Healthier.
My husband took this picture. :) He came into the kitchen and said, "That smells so good! Those colors look awesome! I have to take a picture." Always makes me smile when my food makes others happy, not just myself. And this dish did make us happy. I threw it together with ingredients I had on hand, and it turned into something I will definitely make again, and eagerly wanted to share! Hope you enjoy as much as we did! Here's the link to my recipe: Gabbi's Spicy Curry Vegetable Stew
Tonight's dinner was a "throw together as quickly as possible" kind of meal that turned out AWESOME! Don't you love that? Well I do. Nothing worse than trying to throw dinner together and having it turn out terrible. I've had my fair share of those. Or burning your tongue before dinner while trying to taste test what your cooking. Ugh. That makes me so mad. It ruins the whole meal for me!
Anyways, this stew was freaking great, and I quickly wrote down my recipe so I could share it with you!! Seriously-if I don't write down my recipes the same night, they are gone forever-I've often looked back on my recipes and thought "Dang-that looks good! Don't remember making that at all!" My memory=bad. Sometimes I think this website may be more for me than anyone else-so I have a place to keep my recipes!
I really hope you enjoy this stew. I sure did. Went back for seconds...twice. :) GUINNESS STEW RECIPE
These green beans are dirty. The slut of all green beans. Tossed with bacon, onion, butter….If I had nothing else to live for, these would be it. Period.
Damn these are good. Click here for the recipe!!!!
Tonight I just felt like cookin. I put my hair back, rolled up my sleeves, stuck my apron on and started creating with the ingredients I had in my fridge and pantry. This dinner could have gone so many ways. My final creation? Cabbage-Beef Tamales. The name doesn't fit this dish entirely, as they are not tamales, and there is no cow meat in them, but-I thought the name sounded scrumptious, and I couldn't think of anything better, so I stuck with it. Somehow "Beef Cabbage Rolls" doesn't sound appetizing. Yuck. Tamales sound much more sophisticated. And these suckers were pretty dang good. They made me happy. I hope they make you happy too!

Make this salsa TONIGHT for the game tomorrow!

After I got E.Coli in July of last year, it took 6 months to fully heal my stomach. More than the probiotics, yogurt, fish oil, & herb supplements, THIS juice helped the most. I really started noticing a difference after one week of drinking it every day. I call it "Heal Your Gut Juice" because it healed mine. Here's the recipe:
Note: You will need a juicer for this recipe. I highly recommend buying one. When my mom got a new one, she gave me her old one. I swear it's 15 years old and sounds like a plane taking off, but boy does it work good!
2 organic carrots, cut into smallish chunks
1 inch fresh ginger, peeled (veggie peeler works great)
1 organic apple, seeded and cut into smallish chunks
Juice in order listed above. Drink immediately.
I can't get enough of this dressing. I've been making it every week. It's so light, refreshing, easy to make, and healthy! Can't beat that combo. It goes great on any type of green salad, but my favorite to pair it with is a salad consisting of:
Oh BABY! I hope someone else out there loves food as much as me, because I'm starting to feel a little crazy. I think I like it more than anything else in the world…. Just make this dressing!
Dirty and clean produce of course! I'm posting this list because it is a good reminder of what produce is essential to buy organic, and what produce is okay to buy non-organic. Because I, like most people, cannot buy everything organic, although I would love to. For those of you that may not know, the "dirty" list is produce that ranks the highest in pesticides. The "Clean" list is produce that ranks that lowest in pesticides. Hope this is helpful, I know I will sure use it.

Today I made homemade chicken broth. For the first time, I might add! It always seemed like such a hassle in my mind, but oh my word, it is so simple! You throw some ingredients in a pot and forget about it! I don't like being wasteful, so every time you roast a chicken (or turkey), make broth the next day!! Click here for my recipe!
