Egg White Cups

To be perfectly clear, our lives are really not THAT busy. We do not have children, we aren’t married, we do not have a second job, and we do not have a ton of obligations outside of work, A Healthy Hint and our social lives. However, we are still people who love to maximize our time, and one of the best ways we know how to do that is by meal prepping our food every week. We usually prep our lunches and dinners, but we have found we can take this life hack a step further and meal prep our breaksfast, too. We want to share a few ideas with you on these easy yet delicious Egg White Bites.  Continue reading

Pecan Pumpkin Pie Bars

A true coming of age sign is when you learn that you love nuts in dessert. They give extra texture, they add more flavor, and they make every bite a little more delicious. It took us 20-something years to learn this lesson, but we are so glad we finally appreciate a more sophisticated take on treats. Pecans in particular are the official nut of the season. Have you noticed how much we like using them in our recipes? Here’s looking at you, Roasted Veggies. Obviously we are about to educate you on why that is, and then give you a delicious recipe to try– just in time for Thanksgiving! Prepare to woo your mother-in-law, the hard-to-please granny, and -of course- yourself with these delicious bars.

Parmesan Roasted Carrots

The Monday Night Football game is on, sounds of the competition rippling through the air. You have a creamy garlic dip in front of you, wafting around you with it’s dreamy, delicious aroma. You are surrounded by friends, by laughter, and suddenly — a craving. A craving for a crunch, for something to really round out the dip, and to bring joy into your heart in a way that only food can. You know the beautiful crinkle sound that comes from opening a bag of salty potato chips? Well tough shit- you don’t get to hear it, because you have to have carrots with your dip. Shhhh. Take a deep breath, because carrots don’t have to be boring. In fact, with our new recipe, you can discover that they can even be delicious sans garlic dip. Continue reading

Turkey Butternut Squash Chili

We live in Phoenix, Arizona, which means we have about a 9 day window every year to enjoy true winter recipes, since it will actually be cold enough for a brief, sweet window of time. Within this tiny window, we embrace the chunky side of life. Chunky sweaters, a chunky boot and sock combo, and the glaringly obvious: chunky chili. Chunk-less chili is a depressing oxymoron of sorts, and we are not having it. Naturally, we want to have a health conscious and filling recipe that still hits the comfort food craving.  Continue reading

Cranberry Apple Sauce

While we may be crazy for all things pumpkin, (here’s looking at you, Pumpkin Scones) nothing really holds a candle to the flavors of Thanksgiving and Christmas. There is something so homey about certain tastes, flavors and foods, and when we think Thanksgiving, we think cranberries. A quality cranberry sauce pairs well with anything- meats, veggies, on a warm roll, or even straight off the spoon. A lot goes into a good cranberry recipe, since their natural flavor is quite tart. However, that poses a problem: how do we plan to sweeten our cranberry recipe in a natural way, without added artificial sugar, while still making this delicious? Thus, the Cranberry Apple Sauce recipe was born. Are we cranberry pioneers? Maybe.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

You know the cheesy movies from the 90s where the shy girl gets the guy in the end after he finally sees her for who she really is? In this scenario, we are the guy and Brussels Sprouts are the shy girl, because after rejecting this vegetable in our childhood, we are head over heels in love with them in our 20s. We honestly cannot understand why these little green veggies got such a bad rap in our youth since we cannot get enough of them now. With our newfound Brussels love affair, we have perfected preparing these by roasting them, and cannot wait to share this recipe with you. These may just be your Thanksgiving must-have side dish!

Can you believe November is already upon us? We are in the thick of fall, people. While Christmas time may be right around the corner, we are still not done with all the flavors that fall has to offer us! We are kicking the month off with our homemade Salted Caramel Apple Bars. This recipe is a perfect ‘healthier alternative’ option for anyone looking to cut down on refined sugar while still treating yourself to something delicious.

Lemon Ricotta Spaghetti Squash with Chicken and Spinach

We are clearly on a fall flavor kick here on A Healthy Hint. Squash is a staple fall vegetable choice for us, but spaghetti squash in particular is something we feature in our recipes year-round. This is because we are carb hounds and love a good noodle dish… and our guess is that 9 out of 10 of you feel the same way! However, despite our love for pasta, it is not a meal we usually find ourselves eating and consider a hearty pasta dish more of a cheat meal for us, personally. That left us with a little problem: how can we go about satisfying our pasta cravings without sacrificing our target daily carb intake? Solution: spaghetti squash. This vegetable is such an easy one to make, and still has a ‘noodle-like’ texture which hits the spot for us when we are meal prepping.

We want to bring you healthy recipes and hints, but we always want to encourage you to recognize the importance of balance. This recipe may have more sugar than some of our recipes, but if there is one thing we cannot stress enough, it is that your healthy lifestyle is truly a marathon, not a sprint. Take time to create some spiced, sugary goodness, and enjoy all that fall has to offer you!
