    Back by popular demand is another week of HEALTHY and TASTY meals for you and your family! Why do I take time to plan weekly meals for not only me and my family, but yours as well? Because I hope you’ll truly enjoy these meals and realize that you don’t have to sacrifice taste to feed your family in a healthful way! This is SO important for so many reasons but here are some general ones: If you put good food in your body you will feel good. If you...

You can tone down the unhealthy food/ bad habits and still pump up the fun on the weekend! People usually go into the weekend feeling tired, drained and exhausted from work, family stuff and other activities. So, what typically happens? I’m sure you can answer this pretty easily – people order pizza, they stop at McDonald’s or they go out to eat and order a meal that easily has 1,000 calories in it. (For example, a cheese enchilada plate with rice, refried beans, chips and salsa is around 1,500...

  Sometimes I just NEED a chocolate fix!  What about you? The easiest way to satisfy that need would be to stop at the gas station on the way home from work and grab a candy bar. But have you ever looked at the ingredients in a candy bar?  Most of them I can’t even pronounce!  What does that mean?  That means there’s a bunch of crap in it!  YUCK! Now, to keep it real, it’s not like I’ve never done this. Of course I’ve picked up a Snickers bar at...

Hey y'all! I'm glad to hear so many of you liked the weekly recipes so here is Round 2! And, I just have to say - I am particularly excited about this meal plan that I'm sharing with you today because not only are these recipes TASTY and HEALTHY, but they are different than what I would usually cook during the week.   Why? Because there are more vegetarian-friendly recipes since my husband is gone and I could care less about eating meat. One of his favorite statements in regards to...

Okay, so I am going to bear my soul a little here.  This isn't easy for me...

  I don’t know about you…but sometimes it’s SO hard for me to come up with meals for dinner! I may flip through some cookbooks, look up some recipes I’ve emailed to myself and ultimately, I end up looking for recipes on Pinterest (which I have a Love/Hate relationship with.  Anyone else with me on that?).  I literally have thousands of pins on my boards which can get monotonous sorting through! If Pinterest fails me because: I get too over-whelmed with it I start to feel inadequate because I did not plan...

   I remember New Year’s Eve, five years ago. My husband and I had just moved to Washington from Oklahoma a few months prior, it was bone-chilling cold and we were walking to a friend’s house. We played poker (which I didn’t know how to play and still don’t because maybe… there was a little too much drinking involved) and drank Disaronno and Coke (which I’d never had before, and, is delicious). We stayed out until way past two in the morning and then staggered our way down the...

  Do you have a goal in mind for the new year?  Good.  Now forget about it. That's right.  You heard me.  Forget it. Why?  Because it isn't about the end result, it's about the process.  It's about how you feel and the person you become along the way that truly matters.  Reaching your goal, coming to the end state, is just an added bonus. Are you determined to lose weight in 2016?  Great!  I hope you do!  But think about the steps along the way that will get you there.  You...
