About 2 weeks ago my husband came home with a recipe from work that he wanted to make for our January Whole 30. I was all for it since it was one less thing I had to make.
I gave him some of the chicken that I was planning to use for something else and we swapped it out for this. The marinade we used is called a sofrito (Caribbean and Latin American sauce of tomatoes, onions, peppers, garlic, and herbs). Continue reading
A day so many of us will enjoy! Happy National Chocolate Day!
Throughout my Whole 30 journey I made a lot of meat balls either out of chicken or turkey. They were an easy item and already portioned. I knew exactly how many to eat to get the correct amount of protein. I decided to change it up a bit once I finished because we needed something different so I went with a meatloaf.
This came out so good and juicy. The turkey wasn’t dry at all. I can’t wait for you to try this one out. I know you will love it as much as I did. Continue reading
I am a summer obsessed girl. I love all things summer. The sun. The heat. The pool. Having BBQs. Fun outdoor adventures. The beach and everything in between.
That being said I am all about the fall because of the delicious scents and foods that appear in the stores during that time of year. This past weekend I went to buy new hand soap at Bath & Body Works and of course the entire bag was filled with fall scents!
When I decided last week I was going to make this dish it made me slightly sad because it screams fall, changing leaves, cooler temperatures, and shorter days. I did have the intentions to make it because I wanted to use up some straggling ingredients in the kitchen. Continue reading
I made this recipe for the first time the week after I finished my Whole 30. I didn’t get to take many pics the way I had hoped so I decided to make it again (a little different – and forgetting 1 ingredient but still tasting amazing!). I wanted to be able to share its awesomeness with you. When talking to others, some doing a W30 and some not, I told them about this recipe and how I needed to share so they could try it out. It is fairly easy to make but takes a little bit of time and patience. If you have the time to make it, do it! You can even do it over a 2 day period if you needed. Continue reading
If you have been following me on Instagram you know that next Monday I start the Whole30 diet, or better yet, lifestyle. This diet eliminates many of the foods I have been eating a lot of over the past few years while living a pescetarian lifestyle. In order to complete the Whole30 to the full extent I need to reintroduce meat to my diet. Since we were away a few weeks ago on our honeymoon I began experimenting mostly while we were in Greece (our hotel had a breakfast and dinner buffet so I could try a little bit of what I wanted). I felt perfectly fine from everything I ate and was really happy about that. Continue reading
Last Thursday evening I had the honor of once again meeting the two ladies who inspire me every single day to wake up, workout, and make me want to be a better person. For those who aren’t sure who I am talking about that would be Karena & Katrina from Tone It Up.
*I did not have a post up last week due to family things going on. I am still going to be sticking to at least once a week (this week I will shoot for 2 to make up for missing!)
Today I got cooking in the kitchen and knew that I wanted to come up with something tasty to give my workouts some extra fuel this week until I can find a new pre-workout in stores since I am almost out of my BeFit. After finishing my meals for the week I looked at a few different recipes but didn’t see anything I REALLY wanted to make or didn’t have all the ingredients.
Can you believe that is already March? Where is this year flying to? I am certainly not complaining because I want it to be summer just as much as the next beach/pool bum!
I have so many exciting things coming up this spring and summer so I am really looking forward to the nicer weather. Continue reading
