Adventures in Health (Volume 8)

It was the New Year’s Day after Logan was born (2009) when I realized that if I wanted to lose the 62 pounds I gained while pregnant with him I was going to need some help. That’s when I found SparkPeople.

I’ve mentioned SparkPeople here and there before and I attribute all my efforts to become a healthier me to what I learned there.

The SparkPeople recipe page was the first thing I found that New Year’s Day and I was hooked. I struggle in the kitchen and in the first months (and years) I worked on eating better it was the SparkPeople recipes that got me through.


I wanted to share with you one of our favorite SparkPeople recipes for today’s Adventures in Health. I love this recipe because it’s VERY easy (I’m challenged in the kitchen) and it uses things I almost always have in the house so it’s good in a pinch.

Honey Mustard Chicken:

What you need:

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1/2 Cup yellow mustard

1/2 Cup Honey

1/2 tbsp basil

1/2 tbsp paprika


  • Line a baking dish with foil (for easy cleanup)
  • In a small bowl mix mustard and honey, add basil and paprika
  • Pour honey mustard mixture over chicken in baking dish, bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees.

Serve this chicken with some brown rice and veggies and you have a healthy dinner that didn’t take all day to make.

What is your favorite healthy recipe? I’m always looking for something good.
