Healthy on the HomeFront - A Food Blog for Military Spouses
Hi I am Jess! A Military wife, mom, Nutritionist and Chef. I created this space to be relatable for other military spouses out there going through the same things, whether it be PCS, Deployment, TDY or all of the in between, I know what it's like to try and be healthy amidst the daily erratic schedules that we can sometimes have.
Well I have been SUPER behind on my posts guys and for that I am SO SO SO sorry! This PCS (permanent change of station) is particularly stressful for me. For one all of the things that need to be done are scheduled for this crazy month of May. On top of that I have […]
I don’t know what it is, but chicken tender, nuggets, strips or whatever way they call them these days are ALL the rage when it comes to kids! My youngest is a chicken nugget snob too, if there ever were such a phrase. He will only only eat chicken from chick-fil-a…who’s blaming him they are […]
I am a HUGE brussel sprouts fan these days and constantly on the lookout for new ways to incorporate them into a meal. I had the makings for a Mediterranean feast between my fridge and pantry so I decided to turn some brussel sprouts into a Mediterranean masterpiece that even a Greek goddess could appreciate. […]
So I got my FIRST ever Thrive Market order and was so excited about the wild caught canned salmon that I ordered. I knew that the first recipe I wanted to make with the salmon was this from the very beginning. Some might call this crazy….I call it brilliant. Growing up just about the only […]
Family mealtime, what image does that phrase evoke? Is it a picture of a happy family surrounding a beautifully decorated table filled with nutritious and delicious looking foods?

Did you know…Green is my favorite color? It all started when I took my first trip to Washington State, back when I was 14 years old. I saw what greenery really looked like. For this AZ girl it just takes a few tall trees and a lot of green shrubs growing everywhere to make […]
My husband is definitely the guy who loves being fed delicious food. Cliche as it is the way to his heart is certainly through food! Lucky for him, my way of showing love is through cooking and feeding people. His favorite meal is stuffed tomatoes, which stems from his French roots. His mother makes […]
My new obsession…this Egg Roll Bowl! One of my favorite asian foods is by far the “Egg Roll.” I am a fan of that crispy little treat dipped in some sweet and sour sauce, but I am not a fan of the way I feel later after eating said treat. This is my new favorite lunch. The may not have the crispy outer shell and sweet and sour sauce, but I am telling you if you are eating clean and...
You know that feeling when you just find that recipe that you KNOW will be making it on the rotation? This Instant Pot gyro recipe is just one of those recipes. So EASY to make especially with the Instant Pot and so delicious with the homemade tzatziki sauce. These are fantastic to make for lunches throughout the week too, just keep all of the ingredients separate and put together when it is time to eat! Also a fantastic potluck or...
