I just made this salmon for dinner and have to share now because it was that good!!! ~~~~
Pre-heat oven on 400. About 1/2 lb of salmon (2 servings)
Rub the salmon with olive oil, lightly cover salmon with garlic powder and onion powder. Add lots of fresh ground pepper (if you have). Slice 1 lemon and place on top of salmon. Squeeze the lemon ends all over. Once the oven is at 400, place the salmon in the oven for about minutes depending on how you like yours cooked. I cooked mine for 12, and broiled on high for 2 minutes. It was the perfect medium! Enjoy! 🐝

New recipe up on the blog! These quinoa+black bean burgers are a new hit in our house! They are perfect for lunch or dinner. I love keeping them in the freezer and reheating when I don’t have time to cook a big meal! ~~~~
1 can black beans (drained)
1/2 can of corn
1 tbsp green dragon hot sauce
1 small onion chopped fine
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp chili powder
1 cup cooked quinoa
1/2c gluten-free breadcrumbs
1/4c chopped cilantro
1/4c shredded cheese
2 eggs beaten
2 tablespoons avocado oil for cooking~~~~~~ Using the directions on the package, cook 1 cup of quinoa. Once prepared, relocate to a large mixing bowl to cool for 10 minutes. While the quinoa cools, drain a can of beans and mash using a fork, food processor, or immersion blender. Once the quinoa has cooled, add all ingredients, except the avocado oil, to the mixing bowl. After mixing - create patties to your desired size and place on a cookie sheet. (My batch made 7) Next place the patties in the freezer for 10 minutes. Only remove the amount of patties you would like to eat. They keep well in the freezer! In a large pan, heat 2 tbsp of avocado oil on medium heat, cook each side for at least 3-5 minutes.

One thing I struggled with while juicing at home is wasting all of the pulp. I have tried different things in the past, baking the pulp etc. Nothing ever turned out quite like I envisioned. I am so glad that I finally sound something that worked! (Not for the celery pulp but for my carrot, turmeric, lemon & apple juice. ~~~~~~~~
Ingredients for Carrot Juice

1 package of whole carrots

1 tbsp tumeric

1 lemon

1 apple

If you are using a juicer, simply put all the ingredients in the juicer (besides the lemon which I just squeeze). If you are using a blender, blend on high for a minute and then use a strainer to collect the pulp.
Carrot Cake
3 c carrot pulp
2 c unsweetened coconut flakes
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
1 c chia seeds
1/4 c honey
Combine 3 cups of carrot pulp, 2 cups of unsweetened coconut flakers, 1 tbsp ground cinnamon and 1 cup of chia seeds and 1/4 cup of honey, syrup or agave in a large mixing bowl (I used honey). Once mixed well, pour into a baking dish (no baking required). Spread the mixture evenly. Before refrigerating I recommend cutting the bars. If you don't, it will just make it more difficult to cut! Let me know if you have any questions.

When you post late at night, write a huge caption...and then it doesn’t show up 😩🙁😓 C’est la vie!

Starting a food blog has been on my mind from the moment I discovered that blogging was a thing. Cooking has been my passion since a very young age. One of my greatest joys as a child was helping my mom cook in the kitchen. It continued to grow through college and post. If you know me, you know I LOVE food but I also love being healthy. #BeeInTheKitchen is where you will bee able to find healthy recipes that TASTE good and don’t take long to cook because after all, who has time for that? I am a full time realtor {@dallasrealestategirls} and LOVE my job. That is one of the reasons I haven’t started this account sooner. I thought I couldn’t wear both hats. I was scared of the judgement, the eye rolls & the potential of failure. But then I thought why? If cooking is my passion, and making up recipes is fun then why shouldn’t I share it with everyone? Enjoy! 🐝

Open yourself,
Surrender your expectations,
Try something new,
Get creative!

And stop being so dang AFRAID!
It’s going to be okay.
Even when it’s not,
It’s okay.
Be human,
Be “weird”,
Be you.

Do this and life starts getting exciting, it becomes an opportunity, an adventure.
You don’t wanna miss it!

Playing with seaweed in the kitchen.
So here’s my hand at a seaweed roll!
Pretty tasty! Annabelle gobbled them, Milli feel asleep before dinner, but I’m sure she would have gobbled them too!

Care to share something new you tried in the kitchen?

Hey guys!
Bee in the Kitchen here👩‍🍳👩‍🌾
❇️still in love with my bug tongs 😋

I’ve been noticing lately how much, and how quickly I tell myself I CAN’T do something.
And how quickly I can come up with a laundry list of reasons why not.
It was then reflected to me when I brought awareness to this “I can’t” attitude, that my children had adopted (okay let’s be honest; that I had gifted my children) this “Icantitude”. Then what a shit storm when, time and time again their “I can’ts” triggered, and triggered and triggered me again, and again.
Wheow, and man when I get triggered, I turn into Tyranno-saurus-Mama! Watch OUT!
Have no fear, T-RexMama always comes back around to here stomping grounds and cleans up the mess.
And oh what a mess it can be sometimes. ✨
It’s been my learning and my growth to now BEaware of when I am triggered. To flip the story in my head and make myself aware of all that I CAN do. It takes practice, and I’ve been at it awhile now, we’ve turned a cornerstone now though, and I can feel it take root. Can feel the power building behind the words.

Today, there was no Tyranno-Saurus-Mama round here. And I’m glad.
With a whole lot of love,
Patience, reiki, dancing, tea, snugs and cuddles, and nourishing dinner, we made it through this day feeling more connected then the beginning.
And I am

Ps. Biggest, gobbled up this hot chicken salad! Littlest, gobbled until she spotted the green onion! Haha, feels like a win tho😉

✨Bee in the Kitchen✨

Message coming through this week: Be like a Bee, get busy. Get CREATIVE! ✨
My body has been craving change, detox, clean foods, more veg, less processed.
I gotta tell you, my journey with food is very up and down, and all around. Love it, hate it, need it, want it. ✨
Trying out a pesto-ish concoction.
Dandelion greens
Sunflower seeds
Pumpkin seeds
Lemon juice 🌱🌼
I quite enjoyed it!
The girls gave it a try too, Milli found it not to her liking, so I mixed a small bit with Avocado and she enjoyed it that way.
Annabelle found it too bitter, but found it delight full with a bit of kraut on top!
Enjoyed with some rice crackers and in a cucumber roll! ✨
Yes this would be more of the good stuff, more involvement, more joy, more love, more light🙌
