Smoothie Day 1

Monday mornings are notoriously hard for me to get up on time. I always end up sleeping in and even more so since I have been taking night time medicine to help keep the nasty cold germs from the hubby away!   This morning was no different but I did drag myself out of bed…

Thankful for my nuts….

I always giggle like a little girl when I say the word nuts; I absolutely had to throw in a little play on words in the post title! Now that that is out of the way I have to say I am still thankful for my nuts that I had in my purse. I was…

Quick Meal Prep – Lunches

People think quick meal prep is like a unicorn with a rainbow tail. A pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. Fictitious. Oxymoron. Something that just doesn’t exist.  Well, it does exist. Not only does it exist I did a quick meal prep.  Saturday I made my lunches for the week in 25…

Meal Prep Monday

   These 12 meals took me about 30 minutes to assemble this morning. We had some family time last night and I didn’t want to sacrifice that for meal prep! I did spend about 5 minutes looking for my other 3 containers to only find out that my kiddo had grown them out by mistake…

Spiced Apple Pork Chops

The hubs and I are trying our best to stick to our monthly budget.  The end of every month seems to bring the challenge of trying to find something healthy to make for dinner with what we have on hand…does anyone else have this issue?  I’m sure we aren’t the only ones facing this challenge….

Weekly Meal and Water Tracker Printable

I have tried to track my meals and water numerous ways.  I have used the note app on my phone, food tracker apps on my phone…I would go strong for a few days but always fell off the wagon and would end up going back to pen and paper.  Sometimes the old school way is…

Planning while on Pause

In case you missed it… I had to push pause on my tri training and my 21 Day Fix. During this pause I have had a lot of time to reflect on my WHY and how I can make sure I meet my goals….in other words PLANNING!!! I have 5 meals planned for the week…

Dinner for Breakfast???

I’m not a huge fan of traditional breakfast foods. Don’t get me wrong, I love pancakes and a good cereal, but I crave something substantial in the morning. Whole30 changed the way I viewed my approach to what I make at each meal. This morning, I had leftover dinner for breakfast! It doesn’t look all…

Spatchcock Chicken Roasted with Lemon, Garlic, and Ginger Marinade

We all spend time on Pinterest pinning recipes, workouts, outfits….you name it. I make a lot of the recipes that I pin and figured I would start blogging about the Pinterest recipe wins since it’s hard to always nice to know how other people like the recipe, how easy it is to cook, and what…

Food Friday!

I forgot to take pictures before I started eating but here’s what’s in my lunch box today. If you recall from Sunday’s post I pre-made all my lunches, snacks and dinners for the week. Today I had my last chili lime chicken breast, sweet potato and broccoli bowl, with strawberries and a cucumber & tomato…
