Fajita Gnocchi Skillet with Avocado Salsa

Fajita Gnocchi Skillet with Avocado Salsa - You only need 30 minutes and one pot to make this delicious quick and easy vegetarian dinner!

Can you believe it’s already the first Thursday of 2017?!  Craziness!  I guess we are much less lazy this year because our Christmas lights and tree are already down and the only remenance of Christmas is the huge pile of toys and clothes that Eli got.  I’m embarrassed to admit that in the past I have left the Christmas tree up almost until Valentine’s Day.  But, this year, our tree was crispy and dry a week after we put it up and I did not want it going up into flames!Continue Reading

 Happy New Year!  Did you guys do anything fun for New Year’s Eve?  I wish I had a fun and exciting story to tell you, but we stayed at home, ate pizza and watched a movie.  I also wish I could tell you that the only reason we stayed home was because we have a 5 month old, but I’m pretty sure we would have stayed home regardless!  We’re very much homebodies and I have no plans of changing that in 2017 :)Continue Reading

Healthy Vegetarian Meal Plan – Week 25

Healthy Vegetarian Meal Plans- easy and flavorful meals for every night of the week! Prep ahead tips + vegan and gluten-free substitutions!

 I can’t believe that today is the last day of 2016!  I feel like it kinda crept up this year and I’m not quite ready for it.  But, I guess I don’t get a say :)  I usually make my husband and I write down all of our resolutions, but I think this year we’ll skip that and just make a conscious effort to do a little better this year.  Lately, it seems like most of my meals have been grab and go and not as healthy or vegetable filled as I’d like, so in the new year you can expect to see more make ahead and easy prep meals from me.  

I hope that you all have a wonderful and safe New Years Eve and that your 2017 gets off to a great start!  See you next year!

 Did you all have a good holiday?  Did you eat too much?  Are you ready for a break from all the sweets?  This year I couldn’t seem to get full no matter how much I ate.  Not sure if it’s because I’m nursing my son, which supposedly burns lots of calories or because my stomach is a little bigger this year :) but either way, it felt nice not to be overly full!Continue Reading

Anyone else fill up on holiday appetizers before the big meal?  I’m always the person who eats so many tortilla chips at the Mexican restaurant that I’m too full to eat my food, so you can believe that I usually eat too many appetizers before the big holiday meal.  Thank goodness sweat pants exist :)

Healthy Vegetarian Meal Plan – Week Twenty Four

Healthy Vegetarian Meal Plans- weekly recipes with prep ahead tips, vegan/GF substitutions, and a color-coded shopping list!

 I can’t believe it’s almost Christmas!  I’m not sure if it’s all the attention on the baby this year or the fact that it’s been 70 degrees here lately but it really doesn’t feel like the holiday season to me.  Yes, you read that right, 70 degrees!  I promise I’m not bragging about it either, I would much prefer it to be at least jacket weather this time of year, but I guess I’m glad I’m not braving -20 degree weather.  I guess you just can’t win sometimes!

I hope you all are doing well and staying warm and enjoying the holiday season!  We won’t be doing a meal plan the week of Christmas but we will be back in the New Year with a bunch of healthy recipes for you!Continue Reading

 Happy weekend!  My husband has been on furlough for the past month and it’s been so nice!  Eli usually wakes up between 6am and 7am and Eric has been taking him out to the living room and letting me get some extra sleep.  I’m really not looking forward to him going back to work!

I plan on taking advantage of every extra minute of sleep this weekend.  I’m also hoping to get out and do something fun.  I feel like I’m always working on the blog and Eric has been doing a ton of work around the house, so I think we both could use a free weekend to go out and enjoy the beautiful weather.  I hope you all have wonderful weekends as well :)Continue Reading
