Easy Dinner

Easy Dinner

Its always a good idea to eat healthy. But, I know that this can be hard sometimes, especially during the Holiday season.

So, after this week long period I like to get back to healthy and balanced meals.

Keep it simple with this dinner option.


Spinach salad topped with olive oil & vinegar and grilled, sliced salmon (15 minutes)

Couscous (8 minutes)
Butternut Squash Soup (5 minutes)
Sliced pieces of baguette (1 minute)

Its easy. Delicious. Nutritious. And a fun option.

Try new, healthy foods. Eat clean.

And remember:

In order to achieve something you’ve never done before, you must be willing to become somebody you’ve never been before

Last night my girlfriend made a delicious soup and I wanted to share it with everybody. It doesn’t take too long and the process is easy too!

This soup has great texture and flavor. Its great for those cold nights, which are coming in hard and strong right now. cold emoji

 It has about 6 servings in it and takes about 30 minutes to prep and 30 minutes to cook. (We ran out of celery and tomatoes but add them in to get the full flavor, texture, and nutritional benefits)

  • 1 yellow onion, diced (~ 1 cup)
