Bacon and Apple Fall Salad with Maple Balsamic Vinaigrette

I don't know about you, but my family typically skips the green salads on Thanksgiving because there is already so much food and not enough room (on the table and in our stomachs). I know a lot of families do salad on Thanksgiving, and if you've been tasked with bringing one to your family Thanksgiving... Continue Reading →

Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

Even though it's 90 degrees outside right now, and it's still officially summer, the season of sickness has begun. My son woke up with 102 degree fever last Wednesday, so getting him better dominated our long Labor Day weekend. Then, this morning, my husband and I both woke up feeling sick. Nothing too horrible, just... Continue Reading →

Weekly Meal Planning and Grocery Shopping for a Healthy and Fit Lifestyle (+my list of 20 pantry staples we ALWAYS have on hand)

I've had a few people ask my about my weekly grocery list and how I plan meals, and honestly, because I spend a couple of days every few months prepping freezer meals, my grocery trips are pretty simple. Every Sunday morning I very quickly (because I don't feel like spending all day meal prepping and... Continue Reading →

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bars (Flourless, Grain Free, and Low Carb)

As a teacher, summer is obviously my favorite season. I don't complain about the heat because I'm so grateful to have 2 months off work every year, BUT... as soon as school starts back up, I'm ready for fall. I love the cooler weather, the plaid flannels, and yes, I'm one of those people who... Continue Reading →

Slow Cooker Turkey Chili

Every time I make a new batch of freezer meals, this turkey chili makes the cut. I've been making this chili for years now. I love it for three reasons: it's so easy, it's super healthy (also low carb and grain free!), and it's so flavorful. I'm not usually a huge fan of ground turkey,... Continue Reading →

Blueberry Baked Oatmeal Cups

So as a teacher, I wake up REALLY early in the morning. I go in early so I can get all of my work done, that way I can leave right when school is over to pick up my son. With that being said, there isn't really a whole lot of time to cook breakfast... Continue Reading →

Blueberry Streusel Muffins (Gluten Free and Lower Carb)

I don't eat muffins often, but when I do, blueberry streusel muffins are my muffin of choice. I love the freshness of blueberries paired with a sweet and crunchy topping. Unfortunately, muffins like that are basically the equivalent of eating a big slice of cake for breakfast, and that's obviously not the best of food... Continue Reading →

15 Minute Shrimp Tacos

Shrimp is one of my favorite proteins to use for an easy lunch or dinner because it cooks so quickly compared to other proteins. It's literally finished in 5-6 minutes, which is perfect, because I don't have much time to spare, especially on the weekdays. While my son napped today, I ran down to the... Continue Reading →

Mushroom and Caramelized Onion Frittata

By the looks of social media, it seems like most people these days do some form of meal prep (or at least try to!), and usually it involves prepping healthy work lunches for the week to avoid running out for fast food midday. With as busy as I am,  I've actually gotten into the habit... Continue Reading →
