Fed Up

THANK YOU. This issue is finally really getting some attention. So many women’s and fitness magazines tell us that a calorie is a calorie, and eating 1,500 calories worth of low-fat cookies all day is the same as eating 1,500 calories of fruit, vegetables, dairy, and whole grains. It’s simply not! Check this out, and more importantly, EAT REAL FOOD and products only made from real food.


Sweet Potato Quinoa Fritters with Black Bean Salsa

Can you tell we’re into quinoa lately?  It is one of the easiest and most healthy foods in our pantry. I’m loving the creamy avocado on top of this dish.

Spinach Artichoke Quinoa Casserole

(Photo Used with Permission from Making Thyme For Health)


I made this recipe for ladies game night last weekend and it was amazing! It really does taste just like spinach artichoke dip (I served it with crostini), without the guilt. I used a little extra cheese to make it more a dip than a casserole, but it still wasn’t too heavy because it uses Greek yogurt instead of cream cheese, and the quinoa cuts through the richness. So good!

Scrambled Eggs with Chive and Marscapone

This is the easiest recipe ever because nothing has to be measured exactly, and you can substitute any cheese or garnish (or add veggies). We like our scrambled eggs soft, but if you prefer them firm, just cook them a bit longer.

(Serves 2)

4 eggs

dash milk or cream

salt, pepper

very small cut of butter

Tbsp. marscapone cheese (or cream cheese)

1-2 tsp. chopped chives

Heat butter in saute pan over medium-low heat. In bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk/cream, salt & pepper. Add to melted butter, cook low and slow about 3-5 minutes, until eggs reach desired consistency. Turn off heat, add cheese until melted. Throw the chopped chives on top, and you’re done!


Farm Fresh Eggs

Here at Living Uphill, we love our eggs. There is nothing better than a plate of soft scrambled eggs with chives and a touch of marscapone on a raining weekend morning. So when Mel moved to a farm, the first thing she did was get chickens!



Talk about fresh eggs, these things stay fresh for weeks, and look at how cute they are! (Grocery store eggs are on the left).
