Meals for the week – August 9th

We have been in a rut but to take care of my body means fueling it with what it needs. That’s impossible without having the right food on hand. I plan Monday through Thursday and stay flexible on the day we actually make it. Life happens! All these are out of the skinny taste cookbook!Continue reading “Meals for the week – August 9th”

Slow Cooker Salsa Verde – Sometimes you just need easy

I have been making this crock pot recipe for over a year at this point, and it never gets old. There are periods of time that I make this weekly and keep the ingredients on hand at all times! The cookbook that the base recipe originates from is Practically Paleo. I make it a littleContinue reading “Slow Cooker Salsa Verde – Sometimes you just need easy”

Healthy breakfast frittata

I am still on a roll with the inability to follow a recipe, but it’s working out. This is supposed to be a pressure cooker (instapot) recipe, but I don’t have a dish that fits in mine so I opted for throwing it in the oven at 350 for 30 minutes in a 8”x8” pan.Continue reading “Healthy breakfast frittata”

Healthy Eating – Taco Salad with Mexican Crema

This was going to be a taco salad… Until the store didn’t have romaine lettuce in any form. I am already the world’s worst at trying to remember the recipe and doing at least two things wrong. Tonight I forgot to add the tomatoes and green onions, but did throw a little queso fresco onContinue reading “Healthy Eating – Taco Salad with Mexican Crema”

Christmas 2019

The holidays are one of my favorite times of year. It used to start at Thanksgiving, but since having Eli and trick or treating being a thing, it really starts in October. Walt, Eli’s dad, was in town for the holidays and we couldn’t have been happier to have him here! Eli was fighting anContinue reading “Christmas 2019”

Chicken chili and “1 minute” quinoa

Instapot use #2 and #3 yesterday. The first thing was quinoa. And I was pretty excited because it said it cooks for ONE MINUTE. Quinoa is one of the only grains I eat on the regular so that sounded incredible. Little did I know, it takes a few minutes to heat the instapot and thenContinue reading “Chicken chili and “1 minute” quinoa”

Instapot for the win! Barbacoa beef

Some days, you win and others you just take different! Today was a little bit of both. I told myself yesterday I would be in bed earlier and set goals and pull up my boot straps and knock things out. Today was a day of a million tasks and ending with a feeling that leftContinue reading “Instapot for the win! Barbacoa beef”

The New Year – YES, it’s February

When the new year occurs, everyone decides to be healthy. Okay… maybe not everyone but it’s definitely more than the average amount of people that are trying to be healthy. The gyms are full. Stores carry more protein powder. Active wear sells through the roof. And I’ve jumped on the same trend. The truth ofContinue reading “The New Year – YES, it’s February”

Meals for the week of Aug 26th

The plan for this week is easy! My mom heads home tomorrow and it’s going to be my husband, me (three days post knee surgery with my leg in a straight brace), and our two year old.  Our Hungry Harvest options included spaghetti squash this week.  Since those can get kinda pricy, I went ahead andContinue reading “Meals for the week of Aug 26th”
