If you’ve been following my Twitter or Instagram, you’ve probably noticed that I’ve been spending some time with Jen from HobokenGirl (a Hoboken blog geared towards girls). So, what’s up with that? Well, besides the fact that she’s a cool Jersey chick with an adorable French bulldog pup named Pierre, her audience happens to be perfect for Inspiralized dishes – girls who to love to try new things!
On Tuesday, I went to the Downtown Hoboken Farmer’s Market and stocked up on zucchinis, corn and some fresh cracked wheat bread and headed over to her apartment to cook us dinner. Check out my Instagram and hers for some funny videos from the evening.
I don’t know about youall, but I definitely took advantage of the July 4th holiday and perhaps had a bit too much to eat and drink and not enough treadmill time. No worries – Skinny Sunday is here!
Tonight’s recipe contains chunks of yummy salmon. Salmon is infamous for its richness in omega-3 fatty acids which are vital to the health of our entire bodies. These fatty acids help lower cholesterol and support brain functions such as memory. I could go on about the powers of salmon as a heart-healthy fish, but instead – let’s get to the recipe!
Welcome to Skinny Sundays! Let’s be honest with ourselves… the weekends usually get the best of us. One too many cocktails, some late night “snacks” after those cocktails, your “cheat day,” eating out at restaurants, not making time for exercise…. we’ve all been there (and hey, it’s fun!). Worry no more! On Skinny Sundays, I’ll be posting a healthy, low-calorie pasta dish to set you on the right path for the week. No more eating lettuce to detox… we’re Inspiralized, remember? That means a big ole’ bowl of guiltless pasta!
This isn’t necessarily a recipe I have worked on, it’s just something that seemed delicious to me, given what was in my fridge. It came out super deliciously, so I thought I’d share my pictures and recipes with you!
You can take the pasta away from the italian girl, but you can’t take the italian girl away from the pasta. I guarantee you – make this recipe – and you’ll never miss pasta again…. and your ass will be half the size! I call this… Bikini Ready Pasta!
My mom used to make this delicious breaded lemon chicken and sole growing up. I’ve never thought of recreating it until now…. but eh, I had a stressful day, and I needed some comfort food and my mom wasn’t around, since you know, I don’t live at home anymore. my plan was to make a pesto pasta (which is my #1 go-to comfort dish), but the little gourmet market in my building was out of basil… go figure. I improvised and decided to use the rest of my sun dried tomatoes and make a pesto that way. this was a crowd pleaser …. well, for my crowd of one: Lu.
Did some recipe testing tonight… and Lu was a HUGE help – he even spiralized a bit! A simple pomodoro (well, sorta) sauce thrown over zucchini spaghetti spirals and roasted broccoli with sauteed chunks of tuna – top it all off with some toasted almond breadcrumbs and we have a tasty dinner in 35 minutes! Super filling and the best part – super slimming!
