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”

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are the best cookies you will ever eat. Well that is, if you like chocolate and deliciousness and a cookie that keeps its shape. The original recipe is here, but I did modify. I put my version below. First, I went with a dutched cocoa powder instead of the regular. It’s a little lessContinue reading “Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies”

Amazon finds for the week of 7.12.2020

All things home and kids this month! Eli is back in daycare and needed lunch boxes: Bento boxes (linked here) and the actual lunch box (linked here).

Loft Sales for Summer!

Fourth of July is just around the corner and with that comes awesome sales! I have never been one to love white pants. I have a four year old. What am I thinking???

Little did I know, it takes a few minutes to heat the instapot and thenContinue reading “Chicken chili and “1 minute” quinoa”

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”

Amazon favorites!

While sitting and waiting on a form to compile and crossing my fingers that it won’t have any errors…. I wanted to put together some of the things from Amazon that I love — either because they are a good deal, make our lives easier or it’s toy that E loves to play with. WhatContinue reading “Amazon favorites!”

Chicken chili

Lately, we have been pretty successful in having homemade healthy and yummy food! This is due to a few different factors. The largest one being that my husband made it a priority for himself and has spent multiple evenings cooking some sort of delicious breakfast and putting it in the fridge for the week (pumpkinContinue reading “Chicken chili”
