Hi!  How’s your Monday going?  I started out with this delicious plate of strawberry whole wheat yogurt pancakes, apple chicken sausage and extra strawberries plus some raisins on the way to teach.  On Mondays I teach Body Pump and fitness yoga.  The perfect combo to start out my week! Here’s a look at what we […]

Hello and welcome to a fresh week!  Today I spent all of the kid’s nap time doing food prep for the week.  Here’s what I prepped: roasted tomatillos and onions to be blended for a sauce cleaned and chopped grapes, strawberries, red cabbage, celery, carrots and onion for munching and cooking made a batch of […]

With the new year into full force now, a lot of people make resolutions to improve their life.  I just love that.  Maybe those changes are for your health, or maybe like me you want to actually keep your house clean and organized.  The struggle is real over here you guys.  It’s real.  But if […]

coconut curry chicken with udon noodles and broccoli

IMG_8921

There are some flavor profiles I just love… like anything with peanut sauce is a win.  Obviously.  Coconut curry sauce is another one.  There’s something about the refreshing coconut milk paired with spiced up curry that mixes perfectly.  You can make curry hot, or keep it mild.  I tend to keep it milder for my […]

It’s been an oddly hot summer here in Washington.  Although we have 90 degrees predicted for this weekend, fall is definitely in the air.  I can start to feel a change in season.   I want to do yard work again, yay!  While browsing through some pictures from a few months ago I came across our […]

fish tacos with feta slaw

IMG_6772-1024x1024

I don’t know why we don’t eat fish tacos more often. Every time we I make them it’s pretty much just deliciousness. Serious deliciousness.  These ones were no different. Fish tacos are so simple and fresh tasting too. Gosh I just love them.  And that cool crunch that normally comes along with fish tacos?  Makes […]

crockpot hawaiian beef and cabbage tacos

IMG_3835-1024x1024

Hello!  Did you celebrate cinco de mayo yesterday?  I used a few more latin-ish songs in body pump and made tacos!Nothing was very mexican-ish about my tacos though, other than the tortillas.  If you aren’t feeling tortillas you could easily use a hamburger buns or pita as your filling holder, or even just eat the […]

peanut butter, raisin and bean snacker cookies

We all have rough days. Hunter recently had one (lots of tears throughout the day + waking up really sad from his nap). I find that there’s normally a reason for these rougher days: poor night sleep or nap, not eating well or a tooth bothering him are the usual culprits. On that particular day, […]

my favorite chickpea veggie burger recipe

If you follow me on Instragram, you’ve seen me post these yummy veggie burgers a few times now. I’ve eaten my fair share of them without any photographic proof too.  They are just so good!  Back in January I made a big double batch for the freezer, for when baby arrives.  I knew Jacob wouldn’t […]

homemade crockpot yogurt

Over the weekend I attempted some new and quite amazing…. Making yogurt in the crockpot!  I’ve never made yogurt before so I was a bit nervous.  Not wanting to waste half a gallon of milk was my main concern. Not that I would cry over spilled milk… You see, the reason I set out to […]
