The are certain things I make that I have many recipes for. These recipes are usually for foods that go with a lot of different side dishes or combine in many ways as a main dish. One of these such recipes is for grilled chicken. Depending on if it’s going on a salad, a sandwich, or anything else I’m making I tend to add different flavors to my grilled chicken. This recipe is my girlfriends favorite that I make. She will eat it on anything. This recipe has a little kick to it from some Hungarian Paprika which I use a lot because of my roots. I will come back and post more of my different grilled chicken recipes in the future.
I have been working in an office setting for about 5 years now. Most of this time was spent on internships while I was working on my undergrad. One of the first things I noticed about working at an office was how hard it is to eat something that won’t shorten your life. I love unhealthy foods. I could live off cheeseburgers and pasta. None the less, eating these things for lunch at an office slows me down. I have no energy to work.
The common “healthy idea” for a meal around the offices I have worked in are frozen meals such as lean cuisine. These things taste terrible and are more science the food.
Since this is a common problem around the office I have spent time coming up with healthy breakfast and lunch ideas that work in an office setting.
To me all pasta sauces should be made from scratch. It doesn’t matter if its tomato, alfredo, pesto, vodka, or any other kind of sauce. Fresh pasta sauce makes all the difference in the world when working with pasta. The preservatives put into these (canned) sauces edit the flavor dramatically. I like my sauce without high fructose corn syrup. What’s nice about a homemade tomato sauce is how versatile it is. You can add virtually any spice or vegetable to it (popular choices are celery, carrot, onion, garlic, bell peppers, and mushrooms). This makes tomato sauce from scratch a great healthy choice (and a good way to trick kids into eating their vegetables). Since this is my first tomato sauce being posted (and the first recipe in general) I am going to keep it basic. This garlic tomato sauce is fantastic over pasta with meatballs. If you aren’t a big garlic fan don’t worry. If you cut it down it still tastes great.
