The Easiest Way to Cook Sweet Potatoes.

The Easiest Way To Cook Sweet Potatoes 🍠

Look no further! This is THE easiest way to cook sweet potatoes! Are you like me and you know how healthy sweet potatoes are for you but you hate cooking them? Really, I hate cooking them. Typically I would go the way of baking, that seems to be what has worked best for me but holy cow it’s so hot outside I do not want the oven on right now! The new meal plan I’m following called for mashed sweet potatoes and yes, I’ve made mashed them before but I am just too busy to cook right now not to mention they are pretty noisy to chop and I’ve usually got babies sleeping.  So in came my handy dandy crock pot and let me tell Read More

My Body Beast Meal Plan

Let me start off by saying this is not an official meal plan of Body Beast. I’m excited to start the 12 Week Body Beast program but the eating plan looked like too much work and too much food! So this is a custom Body Beast Meal Plan I came up with, my calorie level has gone up so using the 21 Day Fix portion control containers I’m going to add an additional Green, Red and Yellow container to my current plan. I’m also going to give myself some room to add another Purple but I have a hard time reaching 2 purple containers so I’m trying to be realistic. So this is what my chart looks like 4 Green 2 Purple 5 Red 3 Read More

3 Day Refresh

3 Day Refresh Recap

It’s over! It’s finally over!! Only joking this cleanse was not so bad, I expected much worst. I expected to be hungry all day, to be in the bathroom all day and to be grouchy…well grouchier than usual 😉 But it is in fact, over. I finished my 3 Day Refresh yesterday and I really couldn’t be happier with the results and experience. So let’s talk about this 3 day cleanse and how it went! RECAP Well I already posted my Day 1 recap. I’m pretty sure Day 1 was the least “fun” I was craving all the food I couldn’t eat, I had a caffeine withdrawal headache, and I had that pain in my right side but it wasn’t unbearable. Day 2 was much Read More

Refresh Day 1

Almost bedtime on Day 1 of my 3 Day Refresh! The idea of a cleanse didn’t sound too appealing, I wasn’t too excited about no coffee for even 1 day and no eating?! I was excited to see when I opened up my 3 Day Refresh package that there were several dinner options to choose from and it seemed like I would be eating pretty often. Check out my YouTube video on what exactly comes with the 3 Day Refresh and learn more about the meal options!   So how did Day 1 go? Well, I had a hard time keeping up with the food intake I got a late start to having my first shake so it threw me off for the rest of the Read More

Let’s Meal Prep!

It’s taken me a few months to get this meal prep thing down and although I still have some work to do I think I’ve got a nice little routine going. You may be wondering if meal prepping is right for you, well only you can decide that but I can tell you that yes it takes extra work on the weekend but I literally cook nothing all week when I do this meal prep the right way. My breakfast is made, my snacks are ready, my lunch is ready and dinner is a salad that I just throw together. And keep in mind when I say that I don’t have to cook any meals all week I am strictly talking about cooking my own meals, Read More

Strawberry Mango and Quinoa

Big Boy Food

Joaquin is now a year old! Still having a hard time wrapping my mom brain around that lol But it became pretty clear that I needed to start feeding him accordingly. I could tell he was getting tired of pears every morning so I knew I needed to switch things up. The problem was what? We haven’t had the best experience with apples and he definitely has some digestive issues…for a minute I even considered buying him already made food because I just wasn’t sure what to feed him! Alex and I took a trip to the Co-Op at the Village to check out their produce and I meandered over to their baby food section, prepared to convince Alex that we needed to just buy some. After I Read More

Bye Bye Baby Weight

Peeps, I’m not about weight loss. I really am not! I’m a firm believer in measuring results by how you feel, how you look in the mirror, how your clothes fit, are you getting stronger and do you have more energy. Now with that being said…I AM going to celebrate the fact that as of Sunday I am 7 lbs below my PRE PREGNANCY weight…yes you read that correctly. I weigh 7 lbs LESS than what I weighed before I got pregnant! Now if I’m not into checking the scale why am I celebrating this? Well because guys, I’ve been working hard at this and it just goes to show that this program is working for me!! How exciting! I’m eating more food than I ever have and I Read More

2016-21 Day Fix Sunday Meal Prep-06 11.35.48-1

Meal Prep’n

Tomorrow is Week 3, Round 2 of my 21 Day Fix and I’ll be honest I haven’t been doing great! I started Round 1 super motivated and after I hurt my back and had to sit out on W3 R1, I just never got back into the groove. I fell back into bad eating habits and even when my back felt better I didn’t workout every day. Hey, it happens. The way I see it I have 2 options. 1. I can say screw it and continue on with eating healthy when I feel like it and working out when it’s convenient or 2. I can just DO IT! I choose the latter. So to finish off R2 STRONG, today I did my meal prepping Read More
