Making chicken wings at home is easy and sure to please any crowd! Score extra points this year at your Super Bowl party with these flavorful Sriracha Honey Baked Wings! And shhh, here’s a secret for you —> if you coat chicken wings with baking powder, you’ll create an extra crispiness that makes them taste amazing!
Sriracha Honey Wings
For the wings:
2 lbs. chicken wings, thawed
1 Tablespoon Garlic Powder
1 Tablespoon Paprika
salt & pepper to taste
2 Tablespoons baking powder
For the sauce:
1/3 cup Honey
1/3 cup Sriracha Sauce
1/4 teaspoon Sesame Oil
1/4 teaspoon Rice Vinegar
*optional sesame seeds for garnish
Directions: Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Make the rub for the chicken by combining garlic powder, paprika, salt, pepper, and baking powder. Coat wings evenly with rub and place on a foil-lined pan. As pictured above, I recommend using a cooling rack on top of a baking sheet for extra crispiness. Bake for 20 minutes and turn wings. Bake for another 20-30 minutes until desired crispiness. Combine ingredients for sauce and coat wings evenly. Serve wings as is or place wings back in oven so for an extra 10 minutes to allow sauce to caramelize. Top with sesame seeds if desired.
I am obsessed with both crispy chicken wings and Sriracha sauce so this is a big winner in my house! The honey balances the heat from the hot sauce to perfection. You can also substitute the Sriracha Sauce with BBQ sauce for Honey BBQ wings if spicy isn’t your thing. Enjoy!

Eating healthy doesn’t have to be boring! Replace tortilla chips with baked sliced plantains, a healthier alternative that still give you a great crunch and taste fantastic (and they are Whole30 approved!). Although they look like bananas, plantains are actually NOT sweet when green. They are more starchy which makes them a nice substitute for chips as they taste more like a potato than a banana. You should be able to find plantains at your mainstream grocery store – I was able to find them at my local Albertsons for under $1 per pound.
2 green plantains, thinly sliced
1 Tablespoon coconut oil, melted
Salt & Pepper to taste
1 lb. lean ground beef or turkey
1/2 white onion, chopped
3 Tablespoons homemade taco seasoning –>recipe found HERE
1/4 cup water or broth
Toppings of choice: Pico de Gallo salsa, avocado, guacamole, jalapenos, lettuce, tomatoes, etc.
For the plantain chips: Peel and cut plantains into super thin slices. The easiest way to peel a plantain is to first cut the ends and then make about 3 or 4 cuts in the peel lengthwise down the plantain. Do not cut down through the meat – just the skin. Then start at one end and peel the skin down. The key to crunchy chips is slicing the plantain really thin. It’s helpful to use a mandolin vegetable slicer to get super thin slices. Melt coconut oil and stir in a bowl with the chips to coat evenly. Arrange on a baking sheet in one layer. Salt & Pepper to taste. Bake in the oven at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes until crisp. I like to use a metal rack on top of a baking sheet to ensure they come out nice and crispy.
For Meat: Brown meat in a skillet on the stove with chopped onions. Drain any excess fat. Add taco seasoning and broth or water. Stir until well combined. Serve on top of plantain chips along with desired toppings. Makes about 3-4 servings.

Cauliflower is one of those mild versatile veggies that can easily be made into mock mashed potatoes, rice, pizza crust, and even hummus! If you’re trying to eat healthier or happen to be following the Whole30 nutritional program (like Collin is) and can’t eat legumes, try swapping garbanzo beans for roasted cauliflower in hummus. It’s a great tasting and easy to make healthy dip that will pair well with your favorite vegetables.
Roasted Cauliflower Hummus
(Adapted from: Oh My Veggies )
one head of cauliflower
3 tablespoons olive oil
1/3 cup sesame seed paste (tahini)
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
salt & pepper to taste
Cut cauliflower in small pieces, and spray with a little cooking spray on a baking dish. Roast in the oven at 400 degrees until tender about 30-35 minutes. Turn after 15 minutes. Place roasted cauliflower in a food processor along with olive oil, lemon juice, tahini, garlic, salt & pepper, and cumin, and blend until smooth. (Note: I used my blender and it was a little difficult to blend so I will definitely be using my food processor next time). You may have to add a tablespoon or two of water to get desired consistency. Garnish with a drizzle of olive oil and chopped parsley if desired. Serve with veggies and enjoy!

If you’re trying to incorporate more healthy veggies into your meals, try replacing pasta with noodles made from zucchini! Add this flavorful dairy-free pesto sauce and some grilled chicken and you’ll have an amazing meal. And this delicious meal idea also happens to fit within the Whole30 nutritional plan that Collin is following.
To make the zucchini noodles, I used this micro plane spiral cutter found on Amazon.com and pictured above (or try using a cheese grater turned on its side). Note that Collin’s favorite is this World Cuisine Spiral Vegetable Slicer.
Pesto Zucchini Noodles
For the noodles:
2 large chicken breasts – grilled
5 zucchinis – sliced into noodles
teaspoon olive oil
salt & pepper to taste
For the Non-Dairy Pesto:
(Recipe via Food52.com)
1/2 cup olive oil
2 cups basil leaves
2 oz. pine nuts, walnuts, or shelled pistachios
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 clove garlic
salt & pepper to taste
Directions: Combine pesto ingredients in a food processor or high powered blender and pulse until mixture is coarsely ground. Makes about 1 cup prepared pesto. Shred zucchini into noodles and sauté in a pan with olive oil on the stove for just a few minutes. Be careful not to overcook. Combine pesto with noodles. Top with sliced grilled chicken. I like to use a cast iron grill pan on the stove for convenience when grilling chicken indoors. Serves 4
My family absolutely loved this meal – the zucchini noodles rock! They are super light but also very satisfying! And the pesto was surprisingly flavorful minus the cheese (of course, you can always add in cheese if you don’t mind the dairy!).

If you’re looking for a healthier potato chip snack idea, try these yummy and easy baked sweet potato chips! Just use sweet potatoes or yams and season them to your liking. Plus, the ingredients in this satisfying snack are in compliance with the Whole30 program (if you happen to be following this nutrition program like Collin is).
Baked Sweet Potato Chips
(Idea from Whole Living)
2 sweet potatoes, very thinly sliced (Tip: I used a mandoline slicer)
2 Tablespoon coconut oil
salt & pepper to taste
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Toss thinly sliced sweet potatoes with coconut oil and spread in an even layer on two baking sheets. Salt & pepper and bake for around 25-30 minutes. Turn sweet potatoes halfway through the baking process and watch closely towards the end. Remove when crisp – then just cool and enjoy! Serves 4.
These are really tasty and great if you have a craving for something crunchy! I also experimented with a fantastic salt & vinegar version by first soaking raw chips in about 1/2 cup white vinegar for 15 minutes and then baking as directed above. They were so good – my kids loved them and they were gone in seconds! What a yummy and simple snack!

If you’re looking for a super easy and healthy weekday lunch idea, try dressing up a can of tuna with this yummy recipe idea for tuna ceviche. It’s not only full of brilliant flavor, but also gluten-free, dairy-free, and made with ingredients in compliance with the Whole30 program. If you happen to be following this nutrition program (like Collin is!) make sure to look for canned tuna that has no added sugar or soy such as organic varieties sold at Whole Foods.
(Adapted from Skinnytaste.com)
7 oz. canned albacore tuna in water, drained
1/2 avocado, sliced
Handful of small salad tomatoes, chopped
2 Tablespoons cilantro, chopped
2 Tablespoons purple onion, chopped
1 jalapeno, seeded, chopped
Juice of one lime
1/2 teaspoon olive oil
1/8 teaspoon ground cumin
Salt & pepper to taste
*Wrap in pieces of butter lettuce to serve
Chop and combine ingredients in a medium bowl. Serve with lettuce pieces if desired.
Makes 2 servings.
This is a really yummy and easy lunch! I love the flavors. What a great way to jazz up a can of tuna! Not a tuna fan? Try shrimp instead! Enjoy!

English muffins are a great foundation for an easy pizza (I love that English Muffins can easily be frozen to always have on hand!). Use different varieties of leftover cheese, sauces, meats, and veggies from the fridge for a super easy and delicious meal or snack. This Caprese version is just like the popular salad, except melted to perfection into a pizza.
English Muffin Caprese Pizzas
2 English muffins
4 slices fresh mozzarella cheese
handful of small salad tomatoes, sliced
4 fresh basil leaves sliced
drizzle of olive oil
drizzle of balsamic vinegar
finish with salt/pepper and ground red pepper flakes if desired
Open English muffins and place on top of a baking sheet. Top with cheese, tomatoes, and basil. Drizzle with small amount of olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Bake in the oven at 375 degrees for about 1o minutes or until slightly brown. Top with a little salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes if desired. (Serves two)
These are so good! I’ve also made a whole pizza this way and it’s fantastic. I think sun dried tomatoes and olives would be yummy too. I love easy no-fuss meals like this and hope you do too. :)
