I love tacos, pizza and margaritas like no other, but realistically, I can’t eat like that everyday. Too much unhealthy stuff ends up making me feel not the best. Honestly, Monday through Thursday, I really try to cook, meal plan and prepare every meal during the week. It makes our lives so much easier and prevents us from ordering out (and saves us money too). Anyone try to do this? I know our intentions are always good, but life does get in the way sometimes and we just need a burger, you know?!
I am sharing 5 healthy meals that we have often in my house during the week. Plus, they are easy and only require a few ingredients and time. Which are some of the two most important things while cooking during the week, am I right?

When I eat poorly and indulge in too many sweets, my sleep and overall mood was impacted. I was still eating like I was pregnant! Late night snacks, staying up too late and not working out. And honestly, I’m already on a few hours of sleep a night, so I just want to treat my body right again. Time to give it some love! Continue reading →
Acorn squash is in season right now and I found them for $0.49 cents at the store, why not take advantage?!

Other fillings that would be good are: Continue reading →
