The king of grocery shopping

I spent the weekend with my best friend in Mississippi while Willie stayed behind to handle the dogs!  He also had to handle the grocery shopping so that we could successfully handle the Sunday meal prepping. For the record, my husband is AMAZING! I got to enjoy views like this and he got to take [...]

We visit the grocery store on the REGULAR!  We used to go twice a week because our produce would get bad but I think we've finally gotten that under control.  I know I like to stick to a budget because I'm cheap thrifty.  I thought I would share some of my budget conscious tips with [...]

The fastest meal prep I’ve ever done post image

When I travel, it's really hard to get the meal prepping done.  Guess what? I'm going to be doing a lot of traveling for the rest of the year so I'm going to have to learn to perfect the system.  I usually end up skipping a workout so I can get everything done but yesterday [...]

Last week my friend made egg rolls. I can't have egg rolls because they are fried. I thought I would try something different. Willie purchased some spring roll wrappers a while ago so I thought I would give it a try.   The ground chicken spring roll   Print Prep time 10 mins Cook time [...]

How is everyone doing this week? How is your refrigerator feeling this week? It's Thursday so our fridge is starting to empty out which got me thinking about some things I can't get enough of lately. I love pumpkin, Willie hates it. That's fine. That means I can eat all the pumpkin and not have [...]

This week’s sunday set up: spring rolls, roasted chickpeas and vinegar chicken post image

Happy Sunday everyone! It's been a pretty uneventful weekend. We were supposed to go to Austin for the Fit Foodie thing but a lot of things got in the away so we had to cancel. That was a bummer because I wanted to meet Allison Sweeney. Instead, we continued on with our normal workouts. Willie [...]

Running a bit behind

This past weekend put me a little behind on the food prep thing which in turn has kind of made life a little harder. This weekend I ran one of those Hot Chocolate races and it wasn't a good experience. I'll put that in a separate post for the interested parties later. But that meant [...]

Zucchini and Summer Squash Fritters post image

Every time I got on instagram someone was posting pictures of zucchini fritters.  I've never had a zucchini fritter in my life and I definitely didn't know how to make them. I thought I would give it a go on my own terms but first I needed to know the basic of a fritter. So [...]

Knowledge is power so go get it! post image

My favorite graduate school professor told me "knowledge is power but people don't want to pay for that power." Paying for information doesn't necessarily mean a monetary exchange, sometimes is a time exchange too. Hearing that statement changed my world and continues to influence how I look at things now. I want to preface this [...]
