Happy Monday morning!
Today I have something special planned… a blog hop with my friend Katie over at She Rocks Fitness. Since Katie is here today, I’m over at her blog sharing a FUN sports training workout. Be sure to check it out!
And since Jacob and I have been going meat free for a little while, it’s nice to mix it up so you all see a little more meat around here. Katie to the rescue!
Take it away girl…

When Heather asked me to do a guest post, I figured this was a great opportunity to try out a new recipe that was easy, healthy, and leaves lots of leftovers (great for prepping meals for the week). My friend Lauren, who is the writer of Newest Obsession, shared this recipe with me and I have wanted to try it for weeks (I made some little changes here and there). This was perfect for a Sunday family meal! It was so easy to prepare and the flavor was delicious. The chicken literally just falls off the bone! Leftovers for the week were just as good too. Enjoy!
