Food & Drink / Wellness

  1. We usually make our own snacky things for the week, but I saw these at tjmaxx on sale, so I thought we’d try them out. They are AMAZING. Buttery, lemony, and they melt in your mouth. Full of healthiness too ;)
  2. Homemade granola. This recipe is easy to change up depending on what you have in your pantry.
  3. Our first time trying Kefir. It’s like a drinkable yogurt, if you’re curious you can read more about it here. I’ve always had stomach trouble with dairy… and heard this stuff is easier to digest. I really liked it! Not sure I’d buy it every week though since it’s kinda pricey for me.
  4. Found these at tjmaxx too. I love pumpkin seeds and they’re easy to stuff in our backpack for a snack.
  5. My dad gave me this set of yoga dvd’s for Christmas. He’s been doing yoga every night for most of his life and I’ve always admired that about him. I’ve tried quiet a few different dvd’s and classes over the years and these are by far the best ones. He found them at Costco for under $15.
  6. Yes, I still get acne. I found both of these products at target, and so far they’ve been helping! Spot treatment & Daily repair treatment.
  7. I just finished week three of the BBG workouts. So far I really love them. I still can’t do a “real” push-up… so I’m reminding myself that I’m still “enough” ha!
  8. We found this at Trader Joe’s. Just popcorn, olive oil, and a little sea salt. So good!
  9. This sweet snack is one of our favorites. Recipe here.

Food & Drink / Wellness

I thought it would be fun to share a series on some of my favorite food finds and healthiness stuff. It’s something I’m really passionate about. I’m no expert, but I do love it. We’ve had a lot going on this year. With school and life. So I’ve been doing my best to make an effort to take care of myself. When I do I’m happier, which helps me to be a better wife and mom. This stuff is what works for me. I’ve tried so many things — the Whole30, paleo, vegan, and juice cleanses. The same goes with exercising. I’ve taken good things from everything. I’m finally piecing it together and starting to feel good about my health. For me it takes a good balance of mind, body, and spirituality. As cliche as that sounds it’s so true. Anyways, here’s the details on the pics above.

  1. Some of my very favorite cookbooks. It Starts with Food. Everyday Cooking Light. Meals Made Simple. Deliciously Ella. Oh She Glows.
  2. Almond Chia Energy Bites. I’ll post the recipe soon!
  3. You need this in your life if you like nut butters. SO. DANG. GOOD.  I found mine at TJmaxx of all places. It’s called Wild Friends.
  4. Breakfast smoothie bowl with frozen mango, strawberries, banana, and almond milk. Topped with chia seeds and cocoa nibs.
  5. A salad jar for lunch on the go. I’ll make these for Garrett to take to school too. They’re so easy and yummy! Just make sure to put the dressing in first to keep it from getting soggy.
  6. One of our favorite easy go-to dinners. We usually do brown rice penne pasta instead and top it with some salt and pepper. We found the brown rice/millet ramen at Costco!
  7. Barre is my dream class. I just love it so much. I’ve always wanted to be a dancer and a yogi haha, it’s kind of like those two in one.
  8. MIRACLE is all I have to say about this stuff. Get some. I found it at Sprouts.
