Rhodes Corned Beef Braid // Tried and TastyWe are nearing St. Patrick’s Day and if you haven’t nailed down your menu, let me suggest this Corned Beef Braid that I made for the Rhodes Blog.

In fact, I’ve now wondered where this traditional Irish meat has been all of my life?! 

If you are looking for an easy festive lunch or dinner I’ve got a zillion step-by-step photos for you to walk you through every moment of the process! If you’ve been afraid to attempt a ‘braid’ I’ll relieve your hesitations. It’s SO easy! Stuffed with yummy corned beef, cheese, potatoes, and spinach this braid is not only simple, it’s also filling and delicious! Head on over to the Rhodes Blog for more great photos and the Corned Beef Braid recipe, add this to your holiday menu today! Then come back tomorrow because I’ll have another yummy corned beef recipe for you!

100% Whole Wheat Waffles // Looking for a nutritious way to start your day? These 100% Whole Wheat Waffles are heart healthy and perfect for the entire family! | Tried and TastyIt’s no secret that breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day. I’ve struggled on and off trying to make sure I start my morning on the right foot with a good filling and nutritious breakfast. The problem is I’m not a morning person. Stay up in to the wee hours of the night? No problem! Get up early enough to have a great breakfast? Problem. What I look for in a great breakfast is something that is quick, easy, and healthy. All too often it’s easy to either skip the meal entirely or grab something that really isn’t doing my body any good.

I got together with some girlfriends for brunch this past weekend and as we were deciding on our menu, I was asked if I had a good waffle recipe. It was then that I realized.. I don’t have ANY waffle recipes! Typically, when I make waffles I usually grab my go-to Kodiak Cakes. As awesome as my 100% Whole Wheat Pancakes are, I knew I needed to also add a good whole wheat waffle recipe to my arsenal as well. These waffles are fantastic! They are super simple to throw together, made without any refined flours or sugars, light, fluffy, and delicious! Could you ask for anything more?

Minty Lime Water // For a cool, crisp and refreshing beverage, try this simple three-ingredient water! If you've ever needed help getting your daily water intake, this Minty Lime Water will help you reach your goals! | Tried and TastyI know what you are probably thinking. Who needs a recipe for water? Chances are you don’t get your recommended daily intake. Am I right? Did you know you are supposed to drink at least half your body weight in water each day? When I participated in the Game On Health Challenge I drank 100 oz. daily. That’s a lot! No crystal light. No flavored sugar/energy packets. Straight water. Kick that nasty soda habit (including diet) to the curb once and for all and enjoy this instead. But seriously, your life depends on it. While you are looking for great alternatives to help you reach your goals, I highly recommend my Lemonade Cleanse as a great option as well. 

I’ll be the first to admit that just plain can be a bit boring. However, if you add in a few fresh, natural ingredients it can be a whole heck of a lot easier to gulp down. What I love about this ‘recipe’ is that there is no added sugar and the ingredients are 100% natural! There are a crazy amount of benefits to drinking H2O – so if you can’t get it down plain, I highly suggest this Minty Lime Water! Even if you CAN and DO drink your daily recommendation, this is still an excellent way to switch things up that is both tasty and refreshing. What other substance helps keep you alive, rid your body of toxins and waste, prevents and helps headaches, prevents cancer, helps you lose {and maintain} weight, and so many more benefits? Seriously, SO good for you! 

The Ultimate Green Salad // Ever thought of celebrating St. Patrick's Day and not sure what to eat that's nutritious and free of artificial food coloring? This would be an excellent GREEN meal (or starter) to serve to your family! All delicious fruits and vegetable served atop fresh spinach & drizzled with tasty tomatillo dressing. YUM! // Tried and TastyHere’s the thing. It’s no secret that I’m mildly {or wildly} obsessed with the color green. I pretty much go crazy any time I see the color green and wish for it immediately. I’ve been brainstorming ideas for a yummy St. Patrick’s Day menu minus artificial food coloring (I even managed to pull that off in my Mint Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding!). It’s totally possible. This green salad would be fantastic to have as a starter OR even as your main dish. Plus how gorgeous is it anyway?

I’m a huge salad fan. I’ve been eager to get more ‘chopped’ salads in to my salad recipe reserves. This was super simple to throw together: wash veggies. chop veggies. drizzle veggies with insanely delicious dressing. chow down. Yep. That’s about it. We’ll go ahead and throw this in to the ’30 minutes or less’ category. Think the apples & pears are an odd addition? Think again. They take this green salad to the next level! So what are you waiting for? You don’t need to wait till St. Patty’s to have this yumminess. Have it right away! Then come back and tell me what you think!
