Getting ideas ready for next weeks meal prep...I like to stay ready and be prepared 🤓. I don’t follow a specific “diet” but I do like to eat clean, real foods. I get inspiration from many places: books 📚, tv shows, dining experiences and put my own healthy spin on things. I love love love to cook, and while this may seem like it comes easy to me, it can be hard and overwhelming at times- especially as a mommy of 2 going back to 12 hour graveyard shifts. But I have a goal and I intend on hitting it. One of my main goals for food prep is making healthy meals that are tasty (YES- just because it’s healthy doesn’t mean it’s bland 😜). And believe you me my friends, meal prepping can be fun, especially when you make things you absolutely love to eat!

One serving of grapefruit has only 53 calories and about 2 grams of fiber. Research has also found that eating half a grapefruit before every meal can lead to greater weight loss in dieters. While trying this at every meal may be a bit extreme, this tactic would work well for breakfast.

Easy and simple little lunch bowl today 🤗 Wasn’t feeling a big lunch bowl so kept it super easy with some greens topped with crispy salmon, qunioa, and some cherry tomatoes 😋 Not every meal has to have a ton of ingredients or lots of steps to make 🙌🏻 Just simple and delicious over here 😎 I had the qunioa left over and we stopped by the store on the way home to grab some salmon 🙆🏼♀️ I had avocado ready to go with it but for once in my life I wasn’t feeling it 😅 So Eli got to be treated like a prince and have a whole avo to himself 😜 Salmon Sunday is one of my current favorite traditions 👌🏻 Not sure how long you have to do it in a row for it to be a “tradition” but I’m just going to call it that 😉 It fuels you for a day of cleaning + running errands, right? 🙃 Basically me today but honestly I’m fine with cleaning as long as I’ve got a good podcast to listen to 👌🏻 I’m off to Aldi to stock up for the week 🤗 Going to just add my groceries to my stories this week because it’s pretty much the same as all my other grocery hauls 🤷🏼♀️ Hope your weekend was great! ——————————————————————————— lunch details 👉🏻 Wild caught salmon cooked in @primalkitchenfoods
avocado oil, seasoned with garlic and lemon, cooked over medium heat for 3 mins on each side. Paired with leftover tricolor @traderjoes
qunioa, microgreens, and some cherry tomatoes 👌🏻
Found this picture (zoomed in), that’s me in the blue tank. This photo was taken 10/15/15 with my workout HIIT buddies. I ended October 2015 with a total 20lbs weight loss with a 12 week challenge ending at 135lbs. I still didn’t feel comfortable. I was strict but never deprived myself. I cheated, endulged, was Dx with hypothyroidism, yet still did it! 2 short months later, I would hit a huge low in my personal life that would send me spiraling down with stress eating, drinking, and just losing myself fast for the next year. Now 3 years later, I’m more motivated than ever, but it’s also seemingly harder than ever. I say I’d do what it takes to be that uncomfortable 135 again because I still felt so much more comfortable than now, but I want to do this slow. I just can’t do chicken and broccoli for lunch everyday!! I’m down a measly 13 lbs. I need to change my activity up a bit and my diet for the next 7 weeks to end strong before the holiday!
Have you tried my baked chicken and chips recipe yet? #ditchthediet

Do your future self a favor and make these PUMPKIN PIE overnight oats *tonight*! They are super creamy because of the pumpkin puree and hit you with all the warm Fall flavors like cinnamon, nutmeg, and cardamom. Doesn’t just hearing those spices make you feel all nice and cozy?! 🍁 🍂
Side note ...has anyone else started to hoard up on all the cans of pumpkin purée? 🙋🏽♀️ If so, you’ve probably got everything you need to make this recipe! I know, it may suck now (I don’t want to get up off the couch either), but tomorrow morning you will be thanking me. Trust.
Recipe is going up on the blog tomorrow, but I know a lot of times it’s easier to just save a post on the ‘gram. Don’t worry, I got chu 👇🏽
1.5 cups rolled oats
2 cups almond milk
1/2 cup pumpkin purée
1/4 cup pecan almond butter (can sub regular almond butter, but the pecans are what really give it that pumpkin pie flavor oomph IMO)
1 Tbsp pumpkin spice
3 Tbsp maple syrup
Pinch of salt
Combine everything and leave in an airtight container overnight. Oats will be ready for brekkie when you wake up 🤗 Don’t forget to top with some roasted pecans, nut butter drizzle, and extra cinnamon!

How? Here’s a few TRAVEL TIPS!
1️⃣ I always pack a few snacks for the trip or stop at a grocery store/convenient store to get a few essentials:
-hard boiled eggs
2️⃣ I always make sure I have a good healthy breakfast: 1. I love breakfast and 2. You know you can get eggs, bacon, sausage, avocado, toast, etc. at most places so you know what to expect and can control what you eat.
3️⃣ I ask for gluten and dairy-free everything. Yep, I’m that person, “Is that gluten-free? Is that dairy-free? Do you have gluten-free bread? Do you have gluten-free pancakes?”
Hey, you’re the only one who controls your health so you’re only hurting yourself if you don’t ask questions.
Now I’m not saying you have to go gluten and dairy-free, I do because of actual food sensitivities and my gut health.
4️⃣ If I want a drink, I count it as my carb for the meal. Example: Pineapple drink with Poke Lettuce Wraps.
5️⃣ I try to have a lighter lunch so I can enjoy a nice dinner later :).
6️⃣ I love to go on walks especially when visiting a new place, so take a stroll by the beach or choose an activity that gets you moving :).
Eating out or traveling doesn’t have to be stressful. It’s a part of your life and food shouldn’t control you. There’s always options :).
What’s your biggest struggle when eating out or traveling when it comes to food? 👇🏼

I actually found a workout program that works for me...and I was curious about the “feelings/activity” button on Facebook 🤭! A year ago, I would scroll Facebook endlessly and never comment or reply. I would share recipes to save them to my timeline. They were usually calorie packed deserts and usually with chocolate in the title. I never made the deserts...just shared them.
Today, I post to Facebook as a way to stay accountable to my health journey. I have spent the last year turning bad habits to healthy habits. My drug of choice is food! My poor food choices were destroying my health. I realized that I want a happy, healthy retirement and I needed to make changes immediately.
It is hard to believe that was a year ago and 50 pounds ago. My oh my how things have changed in a year! I get up at 5am to workout, I meal plan and meal prep each week and make healthy good choices and it has paid off BIG! I am in the best shape of my life and rely on my social media followers for support!
I want to pay forward my health journey success. The program I used will work for you too. Comment below if you would like note information...I am happy to share! 😊
“Everything but the kitchen sink…”
Tuesday is my regular grocery day, so on Monday I like to go through the fridge and try to use up as much as I can. And this vegetable curry is the perfect way to do that. Simple process, simple ingredients...and a great way to get lots of veggies into your meals. Serve it as a main dish with an added protein or throw an egg on it and call it breakfast...it’s versatile, nourishing and full of flavor!
2 T oil of your choice (I used coconut)
¼ c diced onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1 T fresh ginger, minced
3 T red curry paste (or more for more heat)
1 can coconut milk
⅔ - 1 c broth (I used my homemade bone broth)
1 T coconut aminos
1 T tahini
1 T fresh lime juice
Chopped cilantro, lime wedges and slivered almonds for garnish
~3 c diced veggies (I used sweet potato, fingerling potato, bell pepper, zucchini, mushrooms, kales & tomatoes)
Heat oil in large pot over medium heat. Add onion and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and ginger and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add curry paste and stir to combine with onions, garlic and ginger, cook about 1 minute to bring out the curry flavors. Next, whisk in coconut milk broth and coconut aminos. Bring up to a simmer. Stir in your hard vegetables (sweet potatoes/potatoes, carrots, etc) and cook at a simmer, stirring occasionally for 20 minutes. Next add softer vegetables (peppers, zucchini, mushrooms) and cook an additional 10 minutes (I also added some kale at the very end). Stir in lime juice, taste, and adjust seasonings. Garnish with cilantro, slivered almonds and lime wedges.

Holy toddler meltdown! If you follow my Instastories, you know that we had to hit the eject button at Whole Foods the other day and just get outta dodge! Isla is getting 3 teeth right now, Dean was hungry and it was close to nap time. Perfect storm a brewin’! Anyway, headed back to Sprouts and got what we need for the week. 👍🏻
SWIPE LEFT to check out the goods.
On the agenda (I say “agenda” because these are things I’ll try to make time permitting. Life happens, so take out or going out or, let’s be honest, Annie’s MAC n Cheese could enter this picture). Most can be grain or gluten free, dairy free or made Whole30 compliant.

I’m a sucker for a STOCKED fridge! I love to open it and look at what I have to look forward to eating (beer is behind the bread and ice cream’s in the freezer). 👀
Spent some time during the football game yesterday cooking and chopping some food for the week. I don’t do it every week, but when I do I feel so much more organized and that pours over into other parts of my life. I didn’t have a plan last week, and we ended up scraping together random scrambled egg & mac n cheese dinners or take out. 🤷🏻♀️
“Meal prep” doesn’t have to look like Pinterest or take all day. Who has time for that? Having food ready to go is a great way to eat a nutrient dense diet while keeping your sanity and feeding your kids on hectic nights with sports and homework. We work on this and share tips in my group, and there is still another week to join my September group!
What tips do you have that help you stick to a clean eating but balanced lifestyle? I’ll take ‘em!
