My Journey to Fitness: Mary Ellen’s Story

My Journey to Fitness: Mary Ellen’s Story

Mama Say What?! Mama Mary Ellen shared her Journey to Fitness with me. She is very inspiring and very relatable to my journey to fitness! Over two years ago, a co-worker of mine told me about a new fitness program that she was going to try called the 21 Day Fix and encouraged me to [...]

Baked Parmesan Drumsticks

Baked Parmesan Drumsticks

Who out there struggles with meal planning and cooking at home? Anyone get tired, forget to prepare things ahead of time, and wind up ordering pizza too often? No, just me? Actually, it was me before digestive illness and a massive dietary change forced me to figure out how to plan and cook healthy meals [...]

Simple Swaps for Healthier Eating

Simple Swaps for Healthier Eating

I found a post on Pinterest last summer that inspired me to begin “eating clean.” It basically was a blog post full of simple swaps for your diet that can help you eat healthier and cleaner. Since I was on summer vacation at the time, I was indulging in ice cream, fried foods and too [...]

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Balls

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Balls

I am seriously addicted to these. I found them on Pinterest (where else?) and have made them three times in just over a month. I’m ashamed to say how long they last in my house…and I’m the only one eating them! There are a trillion and five different varieties floating around online, but save yourself [...]

Maple and Mustard Chicken (A.K.A. Man-Pleasing Chicken)

Maple and Mustard Chicken (A.K.A. Man-Pleasing Chicken)

After seeing this recipe pinned a trillion times from different friends on Pinterest, I felt like I finally had to try it.

Ingredients: 1 package of chicken thighs (I used one package from Trader Joe’s which equaled six small [...]

Clean Eating Turkey Meatballs

Clean Eating Turkey Meatballs

I enjoy having a bowl of pasta every now and again, but have never been a huge fan of meatballs – especially those made with red meat and fried in oil. When I started “cleaning up” my diet, I made these meatballs a few times and they were excellent. They pack a serious protein punch [...]

Clean Eating Chocolate Chip Zucchini Muffins

Clean Eating Chocolate Chip Zucchini Muffins

Muffins have always been a favorite treat of mine. Since I’ve started eating “clean,” a regular muffin from a bakery, grocery store or coffee shop is definitely not on the meal plan. But these muffins are pretty much as clean as you can get and they are AWESOME. They don’t taste low-fat or “healthy” in [...]

30 Day Clean Eating Challenge and Tips!

30 Day Clean Eating Challenge and Tips!

I’m sure most mamas can relate to how I was feeling a few months after giving birth to my second son. To help in losing the baby weight, I was breastfeeding, *trying* to eat fairly healthy and making it to the gym only on occasion. But caring for a toddler and an infant doesn’t leave [...]

Clean Eating: Apple Crisp

Clean Eating: Apple Crisp

I’ve recently fallen in love with “clean eating.” For those of you who aren’t familiar with the term (like I was a few months ago), it’s eating little to no processed foods, avoiding alcohol, white flour, white sugar and artificial sweeteners. It’s eating a ton of fresh produce, egg whites, lean meat, rice, beans and [...]

Homemade Granola Bars

Homemade Granola Bars

Granola bars make for a delicious snack. They are filled with oats, dried fruits, sometimes chocolate and they are packed with nutrients. Unfortunately, most kinds you would buy in the store are also filled with a laundry list of ingredients that I’ve never heard of and can’t pronounce. When I started a 30-day clean eating [...]
