Welcome!

I'm Christi, a Marketing & Branding Exec and Insta Chef. Here's the deal, I lost 90lbs, but I love food and eating, so I started cooking to reinvent my favorites into healthier alternatives. It's usually healthy, generally paleo-ish, sometimes Whole30. I will never be able to live without good cheese!

1 Quart Water
1/4 Cup Salt
1 Tbsp. Finely Grated Lemon Zest

4 Cups Baby Spinach

Directions:
For The Pork Chops

  2. Dissolve the salt in the water.

  1. Heat the grill to medium-high
  2. Brush fruit wedges with olive oil.
