What we’re eating: September 9-14
Back with this what we’re eating series after lots of travel recently! When getting back in the groove of things after being out of town, there is nothing that helps more than a list! Queen of lists over here. I actually took my grocery list notebook with me so I could work on our menu on the flights home from Hawaii! We are going to have some favs this week! As always, simple meals with simple, real food ingredients!
What we’re eating: August 4-9
Back with this what we’re eating series after a few weeks off! Nothing ground breaking happening over here, just simple meals with simple ingredients! We are enjoying the last few weeks of peach season over here with a half bushel box of peaches, oh my they are so good!
On to this weeks dinners!
What we’re eating: July 13-18
Coming at you with some new ideas for easy meals! This week what we’re eating looks a little different with a new take on chicken enchiladas! We have also been obsessed with peaches from the peach truck (the best in my opinion) and watermelon. We have been knocking one watermelon out in just a couple of days. They are so good for you!
There you are, its 2:30 in the afternoon, you are borderline hangry about to walk into your next meeting waving the white flag because you need something to eat stat. You honestly don’t care what it is because, well, it’s an emergency. But, thank goodness, you’ve got a stash of emergency snacks in your desk drawer to reach for!
Being prepared is key. I love the saying fail to plan, plan to fail! We don’t wing it over here, y’all. We are prepared! So, I’ve put together this list of emergency snacks to keep on hand, in your purse, car, desk, carry on, etc.
Strawberry Maca Smoothie
Summer time is here which means you might be ready to mix up your smoothie game! I know I sure am! This strawberry maca smoothie is light and refreshing! Plus, when strawberries are in season, how can you resist?!
With the recent news that I am allergic to cacao, vanilla, almond butter, and bananas, I’ve had to get creative with my smoothies!
Toasted Coconut Granola
Hello and happy Monday! I hope you had a nice, refreshing weekend! We always do some batch cooking on Sunday as well as prepare TEB’s lunches for the week! So, yesterday, I made this yummy toasted coconut granola to have on hand for various things this week!
A lot of granolas at the grocery store tend to have lots of added junk in them, and are often $12-15. There are a couple of brands I trust, but 9 times out of 10, I’d rather make my own if I can!
What we’re eating: June 22-28
Happy first day of SUMMER! Not sure how we blinked and got here! Whoa, time flies. Back for a another week of what we’re eating! This is hopefully helping you will dinner ideas and keeping your grocery bill in check with simple ingredients! We will be probably (like 90% sure) be eating dinner with TEB’s […]
What we’re eating: June 8-14
Happy Friday! It’s going to be a gloomy+rainy weekend over here! I am not mad about it though, my garden needs it! ICYMI-I explain how I shop and plan out our meals for the week on this post. What we’re eating this week are some easy dinner ideas I recycled from earlier in the year. That is one reason I love my go-to dedicated grocery/meal notebook, it’s easy to go back and get some ideas!
Easy Granola Bars
TEB loves a good bar. While, bars aren’t my personal preference, it’s important that the bars he does consume be full of nutrients+clean ingredients+real food. These fit the bill, and no, I don’t always make homemade bars.
These are SUPER easy, and you probably already have some or all of the ingredients on the list. Plus you can switch ingredients around! If you don’t like raisins, maybe add some unsweetened cherries instead.
Collagen was perfect to add for some extra protein. OX Nutrition blends better than any collagen I have EVER used, plus they source sustainably and that is important to me.
Superfood smoothie add-ins
When I first started making smoothies years ago, it was tough deciding what superfoods I wanted to add in and keep my smoothie balanced and nutritious. It can be really confusing with all the superfoods, adaptogens, collagen, plant protein, beauty water — literally ALL THE THINGS.
So, what are superfoods?! They are foods with superior nutritional value. You probably already incorporate certain ones in your diet and don’t even realize it! They are packed with powerful nutritional benefits, so get to know them and get comfortable with them.
