Ok Mommas.. Raise your hand if you looked at yourself post-baby and don’t recognize your body anymore? That’s me. I have three beautiful babies and I count my blessings everyday. So please don’t think that I am body shaming myself, or anyone! The bottom line is no matter what size I am, I want to make sure that my body is healthy. When I look at myself I don’t see a healthy woman. [Read more…] about 5 Minute Healthy Trail Mix
Ciao from Mandy at Twigs & Teas. I am so happy to be guest blogging today for one of my oldest dearest friends in the world as she prepares for her upcoming bundle of joy! Today, I thought I would share one of my
favorite 30 minute meals that My Beau and I love. Since, I am missing him terribly while he is off in training as an United States Airman! One of the things we have in common is our unique taste for food. We just love pizza (I mean
who doesn’t..) This recipe is easy to make and your friends and family will think you spent hours in the kitchen!
Summer is close to any end, and so the buzz of all the To-Do list items and rush of back to school is underway! This makes it hard to have sit down dinners and time to even think about what to make. I am a huge advocate for meals on the grill. They are fast, easy clean up, and if prepared correctly can be a lot healthier of an option!
This meal is also great for hosting summer dinners. Hosting in the Summer is perfect because not only are grilling recipes easier and low maintenance, but then you don’t have to white glove clean your home! haha! Everyone is outside, so the pressure is off!

Our family loves seafood! We are always looking for new ways to cook it, and it’s even better when it is a 30 minute meal or less. With as busy as life can be, especially in the summer.. quick meals that are also healthy for my family are a huge bonus!

This was a GREAT last-minute meal! Spaghetti is always a huge hit in our home, and thank goodness for that! Not only is it dairy free, but it is a super inexpensive and quick fix meal. Win- Win! While I was running out of time to prepare dinner I noticed I had some zucchini squash that I needed to use up. So I thought, why not try a twist to the traditional spaghetti dinner?

With the summer upon us, I have been searching out ways to get in shape. I do not think there is a woman out there that does not dread that little phrase, “Swimsuit Shopping”. I know just the thought of it sends chills up my spine. With that in mind, I have set my eyes on the Whole30 Challenge. I have been on it for two weeks and have to praise that I have not cheated once. It has been okay but I’m not going to deny that there has been moments when I just wanted to go into the kitchen and grab a whole can of Pringle’s and eat everyone!! That is not going to happen!! I am going to make it to the 30 days no matter what! I am ready for a life change and I want to be skinnier and Healthy! [Read more…] about Mouth-Watering Fish Tacos: Guest Post from Twigs & Teas

Who is super excited that Summer is around the corner? I know I am! There is just something special about being able to spend most of your day outside, enjoying the warmth and basking in the sunshine. If you’re pale like me, a nice covered deck can be the equivalent to Heaven. Another perk is that you really don’t have to follow the kids around the house cleaning up after them! Let them run and play outside all day and it saves you the hassle. And not to mention the simplicity of cooking in the summer.
When we first were married the Hubby’s parents gifted us a grill. It lasted us a really long time! I called her my Dependable Betsy. Ha! This year Betsy needed to retire, so we were on the hunt for a new grill! With the warmer weather finally peeking out in our neck of the woods, we want to spend every moment we can outside to enjoy it. So the journey began! We found a new grill and are thrilled to be cooking on it! [Read more…] about 3 Brilliant Burger Recipes
