Fresh Season, Fresh Habits

Did you know that 40% of our daily activities are simply habits? We’re on autopilot almost half of our time! So the obvious question is, “Do I have good habits or bad habits?” Now honestly most of us have a combination of both so don’t start beating yourself up over your bad habits so quickly. […]

Mom, What’s For Dinner? Vol. 3

Holy Yes, it’s Friday! It’s been another week that I’ve basically sucked at menu planning.  Wait, no, I’m awesome at menu planning; it’s the shopping and execution that’s been giving me trouble.  So here’s how this week went down:  Sunday I made chili.  It was awesome.  Go me!  I peaked early.  Monday, I didn’t feel […]
