Fitness Friday: BTB Buddha Bowl Challenge

Have you seen any Buddha Bowl recipes lately? If you search on Pinterest or Instagram you will find them quickly and every recipe looks so amazingly delicious!

The Buddha Bowl is supposed to be a bowl that represents these feelings filled with pure and nutritious food to fuel your body.  The recipe ideas are endless, […]

What’s For Dinner? Asian Inspired Mason Jar Salad

Mason jar salads have been floating around Pinterest for awhile and I loved the idea of them, but wasn’t sure how they would exactly last. I envisioned they would be soggy and I would end up wasting food…luckily I tried them out anyway and was totally wrong. They are great! There are so many varieties of recipes out there, they are easy to prepare and you can make 4-5 at a time that last up to 5 days. Perfect for […]

What’s For Dinner? Thai Red Curry Chicken and Snow Peas with Rice Noodles

I love Trader Joe’s for many reasons. One of the many things that I love to buy there is a variety of sauces to keep on hand, especially for nights where I need something different for a quick dinner. This dinner was a big hit at my house and was really easy to prepare. All ingredients were purchased at Trader Joe’s  and only took a few minutes of my time, the best kind of dinners in my opinion!

#MMHM: The Art Of Slowing Down

Lately I stop and hear myself speaking to my children, saying things such as, “hurry up” “let’s go” and “we are going to be late.” Honestly, I sit back and hate the fact that I have become someone that utters those phrases, I am not a rusher and have never been. I always arrived late and really was not phased by it. My lateness was never out of ignorance, rather because I was taking my time, enjoying a moment or […]

Fitness Friday: Sunshine Smoothie for Breakfast!

Most days for breakfast I have a smoothie, they are my go-to healthy and fast breakfast option. I typically always have some sort of green veggie in my morning smoothie. Although, sometimes I get sick of all the greens and need a break. I made up this smoothie recipe last week and loved it. It is a nice change from the typical green smoothie and tastes like a tropical treat, it brought me back to summer…almost 😉 This unexpected snowy […]
