    Low Carb Pesto, Tomato + Mozzarella Chicken

    As cliché as it sounds, I have decided to start the New Year with my diet back on track. I keep saying I have a newborn at home, when said newborn is actually eight months old, yikes! Time was already flying, watching our three year old grow but throwing a second kid into the mix has been a whole new time warp! The second half of last year flew by so insanely fast. That being said, I am ready to grab 2019 and make of most of it and more importantly, myself! Whether you’re carb-counting or not, you’re gonna want to make this chicken! It’s so delicious and I usually have all the ingredients in my fridge. I…

    Low Carb Provolone Taco Shells

    I’ve been sharing my love for lettuce wraps on Instagram stories this week, and honestly guys, I don’t know I will ever grow sick of them! There are so many different meat and veggie combos you can do, I never seem to get bored of them. Especially taco lettuce wraps, ahh! Ground beef, ground turkey, shredded chicken, you name it- I’m forever putting it into tacos! That brings us to my next little taco hack and guys, it is SO good! Just as versatile as lettuce wraps but hits the spot, even more and only takes a few minutes to prep. All the hard taco shell crunch without a single grain to spoil…

    Caramel Apple Rounds

    Living in Maryland, I have always loved getting all four seasons. I love getting snow in the Winter just as much as I love hitting the beach in the Summer. Fun fact: My dad is a retired Meterologist and I think that’s where my love for all the seasons stems from. Fall has always been a fun time of year and I don’t know if it’s having kids now but between the pumpkin patches visits, apple picking, dressing up in costumes and jumping into piles of raked leaves, fall has jumped to the top of my favorite time of year list, right behind Christmas! We have been having a total…

    The Best Iced Coffee

    Some shocking news I’m about to lay on y’all… I have a coffee addiction! I love it and need it! There is nothing I love more first thing in the morning than a hot, fresh cup (more like an entire pot, realistically) of coffee. Summer time always gets me in the mood for iced coffee and you guys know I’m all about that frugal life so after paying $3/day for a couple weeks, I knew something had to give! I’ve made my own iced coffee at home on and off for a couple years now. I’d brew some coffee, let it cool down then chill it in the fridge. But, it…

    Toddler Smoothies with Hidden Greens

    As my baby girl is quickly approaching two, she has been pickier than ever about what she’ll eat. I’ll be honest, we had it pretty easy before. Up until about 15months she would eat pretty much whatever we gave her. Any fruit, veggie or meat she was served, she would devour! While she still loves fruit, the rest is up for debate on a daily or even hourly basis! That and the combination that she refuses to milk always has been worried about her getting the nutrients needed for her growing body. That’s where these smoothies come in! I have always made smoothies and shakes for myself and she thinks getting a sip of one is…

    Low Carb, Low Sugar Cloud Bread

      Hi friends! I’m over here finally feeling back on track with my diet and exercise since our trip to Florida and I’m feeling good! When it comes to following a low-carb/low-sugar diet, I know I have preached a lot about variety but for me it really has been key in my success. It can become very boring very quickly-meat, protein, veggies, repeat. Preparing foods differently or even assemblying meals differently has also really helped me fight boredom. Whether your trying some new meats or vegetables or swapping out your usual salad with grilled chicken for a grilled chicken lettuce wrap, these kinds of changes have been instrumental in my…

    Low Carb, Low Sugar Avocado Chicken Salad

      Hi friends, I’m still over here trying to get my diet back in order after our Florida trip! Following a low-carb diet can get boring at times but I’ve found that variety is what helps me stay on track! Boredom is the enemy! Chicken tends to be the most common protein I go for. It’s the most versatile and it’s cheap! We tend to always have leftover chicken in the fridge that sometimes stays there until it dies😂 You guys know I am all about saving money and reusing pretty much anything when possible. This recipe is great for fresh or leftover chicken and only calls for three ingredients…

    3-Ingredient Flourless Brownies

    I’m still over here detoxing from our trip to Florida. Too much sugar and too much beer! These brownies from thebigmansworld.com were the perfect quick fix for my sweet tooth. No refined sugar and only 3 ingredients which I already had on hand. Now, I’ll use the word “brownie” loosely. When I first hear the word “brownie” I think of warm out of the oven gooey chocolate. These do need to cool completely before cutting and the texture actually gets even better after being refrigerated! Just trust me on this one, guys! INGREDIENTS: •3 medium ripe bananas (about 1 cup) •1/2 cup smooth nut butter, I use peanut butter •2Tbsp-1/4cup unsweetened…
