"Fried" Chicken

"Fried" Chicken

I absolutely love using my Air Fryer. It really, truly makes things tastes fried, even though there is no oil in the fryer. Craziness. I have always liked fried chicken… I used to love this one fried chicken Kid Cuisine freezer dinner as a kid. My parents would get us those whenever we had a babysitter. This is a lot healthier though, haha. But it tastes JUST as good, if not better. The Old Bay makes this chicken super tasty. And then your partner can make “old bae” jokes. So fun.

Roasted Broccoli

Roasted Broccoli

This versatile broccoli dish can be a snack or a side and it’s easy to meal prep for the week. I love how the florets get all crispy after they’re roasted - it’s kind of like having potato chips! I usually have to double batch this recipe because my husband and I eat it very quickly. It’s super simple and super good! Enjoy!

Honey Dijon & Garlic Salmon

Honey Dijon & Garlic Salmon

So I definitely have a bunch of salmon recipes right now, but that's because salmon is such a great part of a healthy diet! Salmon contains Omega-3, an essential fatty acid that cannot be synthesized by the human body and must be obtained by food. Fatty acids like Omega-3 are thought to contribute to healthy brain function, the heart, joints and general wellbeing. This recipe is fast, inexpensive, and delicious - give it a try for a quick, healthy weeknight meal!

Buffalo Chicken Meal Prep

Buffalo Chicken Meal Prep

My secret weapon for fat loss is, and always has been, meal prep. If I'm crunched for time or feeling lazy, my food is right there, ready to reheat for lunch or dinner. And then I have no excuse to stray from my meal plan! I have always loved Buffalo chicken (especially since so much of my family is from Buffalo, NY!). And I am so excited that this is an Instant Pot recipe - it cuts down on my weekend meal prep time like crazy! If you're looking to reduce your carbs even more, you could swap out cauliflower rice. And this could also easily be paleo if you use cauliflower rice & paleo mayo! Happy meal prepping! <3

Strawberry & Chicken Salad

Strawberry & Chicken Salad

Strawberries come into season right at the beginning of summer here in upstate New York. I love using fresh-picked, local strawberries in my cooking. This salad has strawberries on top as well as in the dressing! Don't be afraid of having fruit with protein in a salad - it tastes amazing. Pro tip: make your own salad dressing. It's super easy and way healthier. I did an IGTV video on making an easy one-minute honey mustard salad dressing the other day - follow @rachel.reaches on Instagram for that content!
