Healthy Chicken Taquitos

Healthy Chicken Taquitos

On to another Mexican recipe-does that surprise you?!? I am not a fan of the frozen or gas station taquitos you can make in an instant or grab on the go. Something about not knowing what they are filled with freaks me out a bit. These are super simple (really I swear) to make! If you aren’t feeling […]

Buffalo Chicken Wraps (Protein Bar Copycat)

Buffalo Chicken Wraps (Protein Bar Copycat)

One of my favorite places to grab lunch in the city is Protein Bar. Unfortunately it is a little bit of a walk from my work so if it’s raining or cold out (all winter in Chicago) I often don’t make the trek to get it. I decided to recreate the wrap so I could […]

The Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle 8K is the known race in Chicago for the start to Spring, which also means the kick off to running season in the Windy city. My friends and I were discussing maybe they should think of changing the name since it was held almost a month after St. Patrick’s […]

Chicken, Mushroom, & Spinach Quesadillas

Chicken, Mushroom, & Spinach Quesadillas

If you haven’t guessed it yet, I heart Mexican food! Chicken, Mushroom, and Spinach Quesadillas take your average chicken quesadillas and puts a spin on them. These are what I like to refer to as healthy quesadillas. Anything with spinach in them is healthy right? Really, they are better for you with the added vegetables and less cheese than the […]
