Healthy recipes don’t come easy to me. I have a hard time finding healthy recipes that I enjoy and look forward to making.

I want healthy food to taste like In-n-Out Burger.

One night when we had a particularly healthy dinner, my son made a comment that he felt like he was eating air. What an innocent and pure way of putting it…

These Chicken Verde Wonton Tacos emerged out of a craving for Mexican food. I love green salsa and especially nestled up with some cheese. A little cheese never hurt anyone. I think it’s important to realize that we can still have the things we want if we just use a little. Putting it in a wonton wrapper instead of tortilla saves you a ton of calories. You can have four of these mini tacos for 191 calories. Now that’s what I’m talking about.
