Women are consistently told to “do your kegels” and how they are beneficial for the proper function of the pelvic floor. Well even through my 3 pregnancies and beyond, I don’t always remember to do them. Here is a great article by Nicole … Continue reading
Alright, I made it through the Thanksgiving holiday week with a sushi indulgence (Love Boat Sushi of course) and a fabulous traditional feast plus a few leftovers. I have an obsession with baking pies so I actually traveled with my homemade apple cranberry pie and brought it with us on the plane to San Diego. Crazy? Yes, but I made it with apples from Colorado’s western slope that were hand delivered by clients of mine so I say it was worth it.
So now into preparations for the Christmas feasting. And by preparations, I hope we all know by now I mean eating so healthy I deserve to feast. So lets get back on the healthy wagon and make it happen!
Monday – Chicken breasts with roast red pepper pasta (the pioneer woman) and side salad
Tuesday – Holiday board meeting/dinner with my husband
Wednesday – Body for Life Turkey Chili
Thursday – Beef & Broccoli with brown rice (cooks Illustrated)
Friday – Mini Turkey Meatball sandwiches (the pioneer woman – sub ground turkey) with veggies and red pepper hummus (cooks illustrated)
Saturday – leftovers
First let me express my honor and gratitude to all of our amazing military past and present for their hard work and sacrifice.
Now, I will share with you my not so amazing but totally useful weekly meal plan. By the way, we have 17 days until we feast.
Monday – BFL Turkey Spaghetti with steamed broccoli
Tuesday – Lighter Chicken & Dumplings (Cooks Illustrated)
Wednesday – date night for me and my husband (woo hoo!) so the kids get pizza. Our Safeway makes really good take & bake!
Thursday – Steakhouse Pizza (the Pioneer Woman)
Friday – BFL Turkey Taco salad
Saturday – leftovers
With 23 days until Thanksgiving, it’s time to hunker down and stay consistent with home-cooked healthy meals. I love the holidays and the traditions of family gathering and eating, mostly the pie…and mashed potatoes with manchego…and gravy…and, well I guess everything.
So my prevention is planning ahead so as to not get stuck with the ol’ conversation of
“what’s for dinner?”
“I don’t know, I don’t have anything thawed”
“Well then, let’s order pizza”
Here’s my weekly meal plan for this week:
Monday – roasted trout with roasted asparagus and couscous.
Tuesday – Potato soup with white chicken (the pioneer woman)
Wednesday – shrimp jambalaya (cooks illustrated) with steamed broccoli
Thursday – beer & BBQ braised pork with brown rice and salad
Friday – leftovers
Saturday – ground turkey tacos

“Do what makes you HAPPY. Be with who makes you SMILE. Laugh as much as you BREATHE. LOVE as long as you LIVE”. The search for happiness is often confused as an external search when in actuality, the search is within. … Continue reading
My new motivation for consistent eating and exercise is knowing Halloween is near and my sweet tooth will be challenged. I love candy. I’ve learned that I can’t buy candy corn or mallow creme pumpkins anymore as I will eat through the whole bag in one sitting.
