Healthier Clam Chowder + 4 More Chowders Blog Post

I have a thing for chowder.

I am lucky that my mother-in-law lives year-round on Cape Cod: we visit there several times a year and I get to eat some of the best clam chowder—or as we say in some parts of New England, clam chowdah. (She’s in Massachusetts, after all.) In Maine, where I lived until recently, I consumed gallons of chowder in varying forms—clam chowder, corn chowder, seafood chowder, the list goes on.

Dinner, Planned! Your 1-Month Healthy Dinner Meal Plan: Week 3 Blog Post

Instead of wandering aimlessly through the grocery store aisles on Sunday, I’m sticking to the 28-day meal plan. By week 3, I’m getting used to having all of my dinners and sides already chosen. All I have to do is come home and cook—one of my favorite things to do already!

This week we’re having an Asian stir-fry, a flavorful chicken sandwich, the super-cute potato-kale hash with eggs, an easy pasta, a hearty chowder, steak and more. With all the variety, we get so excited to sit down for dinner every night.
