Breakfast Egg Muffins

I watched a YouTube video the other day by Dr. Barnard.  I first heard of him a few years ago when I bought his book about reversing Diabetes.  Dr. Barnard is a Cardiologist and the recipient of the Lifestyle Medicine’s Trailblazer Award.  He has authored more than 70 scientific publications as well as 18 books. But he is […]

Chicken Enchilada Dip

We had friends coming over the other night for what I thought was AFTER dinner, only they were running late and hadn’t had dinner.   Have you ever been in that situation where you planned on putting one thing out only to have plans change and you needed something quick! I wanted to throw something together with […]

Taco Seasoning

Sometimes buying prepackaged store bought items can provide a convenience.  I’ll give you that.  But not when it comes at the cost of my families health.  The first ingredient in packaged taco seasoning is Maltodextrin, which has MSG in it.  And if you look further down the label MSG is listed AGAIN. What?   Why? If you have 3 […]

Weeknight 20 Minute Mongolian Beef

Mongolian Beef is a delicious, classic Chinese(ish) recipe that is so super simple to make you can make it on a weeknight! I say Chinese(ish) because Mongolian Beef really became popular at PF Changs.  It’s not really Chinese and it’s not Mongolian.  But whatever it is it’s not the healthiest entrée to order out. Sorry to tell you […]

Tomato, Cucumber and Mozzarella Cheese Salad

Aren’t you just so stoked it’s Spring ???   I just love when the supermarket smells of fresh fruits and veggies and there’s nothing like a light and crisp summer salad, especially ones that have cucumbers in them.  They are so refreshing and full of yumminess. So today we have a great salad that takes advantage […]

Lemon Orzo with Asparagus and Cherry Tomatoes

Yum I wish I could give the creator of this recipe credit, but I can’t seem to find it.  I originally got this Lemon Orzo recipe from Pinterest, but when I go back to track where it originally came from I just go in circles to dead end websites. Nonetheless, if you’ve never tried Orzo […]

Roasted Tomatoes and Asparagus with Parmesan Cheese and Almonds

Yum It’s Spring.  It’s Easter and it’s also Asparagus season! This is a very simple side dish to make.  The flavors are simple and light.  You’ve got your asparagus, some grape or cherry tomatoes (halved) and slivered pine nuts. You throw it in a preheated oven and let it roast for 8-10 minutes while you could […]

Black Bean Burger

I made the mistake of buying a very LARGE pack of Black Bean Burgers from Costco recently. I say mistake because they were the most flavorless things I’ve ever tasted.  Not to mention they completely fell apart … and I mean COMPLETELY.  They were totally inedible.  I couldn’t even pick up the pieces with a […]

Roasted Sweet Potato and Black Bean Chili

Before I dive into today’s soul warming recipe I wanted to share with you a few things that have been going on behind the scenes at Happily Unprocessed.  1.  First off, I have (very slowly) been adding the NUTRITIONAL information to our recipes.  This is not an easy task and it’s taken me most of December.  […]

Lemon Quinoa

Happy January!  We have hit a deep freeze here in the Midwest.  The tree is down but the outside lights are still up.  I think they might be there until June. But I love January.  You know why?  Because 3/4 of the planet is trying to lose weight and eat better, which is great for […]

White Bean and Ham Soup

From our humble hearts to yours, we hope you had a magical Christmas with love and laughter with family and friends. And ham.  We hope you had ham because we have ham. A LOT OF HAM. My father in law passed away last year and he was Polish, as is my husband … and well my […]

Cheesy Au Gratin Potatoes

I don’t think I’ve come across a potato recipe that I haven’t fallen in love with.  Let’s face it, it’s very hard to destroy a potato.  But the addition of a warm cheesy sauce and then baking until it’s bubbly and hot is just magical!  That my friends is the definition of Potatoes Au Gratin. […]
