What Does Simple Living Mean? Blog post

When I started Simple Clean Living in 2011 it started as my journey to move away from highly processed food. I wanted to create more foods that were made with clean, healthy, whole food ingredients.

But I find that the…

Summer has now gone and fall has arrived. That means the start of soup and stew season is upon us. I’m not someone who eats a lot of soup during the hot summer months.

I have been inspired to create and eat more Mediterranean-based recipes this year. Especially during the warm months of the year.

September is here! And that means that it’s officially pumpkin spice season. I really enjoy all of the spices of the season and love good pumpkin spice or chai lattes. But here in South Carolina, early September still gets pretty darn hot! So, while I want to enjoy some pumpkin goodness, drinking a hot beverage is not going to work for me! I also don’t like all of…

There are some times when I’m just inspired to create a new recipe and this simple Greek frittata was definitely inspired.
