Happy Monday!  I hope everyone had a successful start to the week.  I just wanted to hop on and share my meal prepping and grocery shopping this week.  I may have gotten a little bit too ambitious with my meal prep this week or maybe I was just feeling a bit tired. Meal prepping isn’t hard as long as your organized. Just carve out some time of your day to get it done (2 hours) and you should be good. Also, find different ways of cooking things so everything doesn’t need to go in the oven. Here’s what is on… View Post

Okay, so maybe it wasn’t my first time but this was the first time I’ve meal prepped this hard since early pregnancy.  But the good thing is I’m prepared for the week and I don’t have much to worry about. Gosh, I don’t remember it being so much work but I’ve been out of practice.  I still need to get back in the habit.  Plus, I made some more “complicated” meals than normal.

It’s day to day with me so there are just some days I… View Post

Big Slice Apples are ready to eat cooked apples, made with real fruit and are naturally gluten free. There is something for everyone because there are 16 great flavors. I haven’t tried them all but I’ve tried most and I haven’t found one I don’t like. It’s a great new snack!  I love apples!  Apples are… View Post

It’s like an apple pie but in a quesadilla form.  It’s a nice twist and it’s super easy.  If you have a panini press, this would be great. There are two options here: 1. you can sauté the apples with cinnamon in a pan until softened or 2. warm  up your apples with cinnamon in the microwave.  I always do the microwave because it’s easier.  Remember, I’m not a cook so I’m always going the easy route.  The whole idea is not to spend a lot of time making this stuff. To make my cinnamon cream cheese, I used a… View Post
