Halloween Skewers Healthy and Non-Healthy Versions

Making food for a Halloween party can be hard! Many of the options are too creepy or two time consuming. That is why I love the idea of making easy Halloween skewers that are quick to make and can be made in either a healthy or a non-healthy option!

Whole30 Meal Planning Tips

Whole30 is intense. There is really no other way of describing it other than the fact that it is really intense! The cravings were really hard for me to get through and there is no way that I could have completed a successful Whole30 without the meal planning that we did. I know it is beyond cliche to say, but the phrase “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.” is so true! If you have no snacks in the house besides the stuff you ate before Whole30, when a craving comes there won’t be anything else to grab except those chips in the back of the pantry! Here are a few tips that totally saved our behinds when it came to Whole30 meal planning.

Whole30 While Breastfeeding FAQs

I did it! I finished Whole30 and can say that I survived during one of the hardest times for me to stay on track, breastfeeding! I don’t think there is a time in my life that I have craved more carbs and sugar than right after having my baby. My body thought it needed all of that in order to produce milk, but thankfully I was able to survive Whole30 without all of that junk. My milk production was definitely my number one topic of questions when I would say anything about doing Whole30, so I decided to dedicate an entire post to those frequently asked questions and hopefully they will help you decide if Whole30 is right for you while you are breastfeeding!

I don’t be an expert of Whole30, breastfeeding, or babies. These are just answers to questions that are based off of my experience alone. Make sure you consult with your doctor about any type of diet you are going to do before starting it and remember that my tips are 100% based on my own experience and may not be right for you.

Whole30 Breakfast Sausage Skillet Hash

We are on day 16 of Whole30 and I must say, Whole30 has been a much more positive experience this time around than it was for me last year! There are a lot of reasons for this, but one of them is that I am much more comfortable with Whole30 compliant foods and feel comfortable enough to even adapt other recipes or create recipes of my own! This Whole30 Breakfast Sausage Skillet Hash might be my favorite creation to date. It is delicious! For those of you who aren’t following Whole30 standards, it is still really good!

Introducing more Vitamin C into my diet

I’m sharing #Ricola in my life as part of a sponsored series for Socialstars™

Last time I went to my doctor, he told me that pregnant women have the tendency of getting sick during the fall and winter months. He suggested drinking a lot of water and making sure that I had plenty of vitamin c in my diet. I have really taken that to heart and have tried to increase my water intake and vitamin c in my diet to keep the sicknesses that are lingering around far away from me!

Ever since I started looking into doing Whole30, I have been a lot more aware of the ingredients in my foods. Before starting Whole30, I was introduced to Silver Fern Brand and their Paka Baking Mixes. I was instantly impressed with how delicious each of the baked goodies looked, but what surprised me the most is that these products weren’t the unhealthy versions of these treats that I am used to. Paka Baking Mixes are full of protein, fiber, low in sugar, and don’t have anything artificial in them!

Easy P.F. Chang’s Dinner at Home

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of P.F. Chang’s Home Menu for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Working from home can be a major blessing and a curse. I feel like it is a constant battle to try and keep everything balanced. There are many occasions that after I have cleaned, worked, and played with a 4 year old all day, I realize that I have completely forgotten about getting dinner ready. The struggle is real, people! A lot of times, we end up eating out. It is fun to eat out, but it can also get very expensive. That is why I love having some quick dinner options ready to go for the days that I just forget!

Fruit Salad Honey Lime Sugar Syrup

My little brother got married in June. At his wedding luncheon, we were served a fruit salad with our meal. The fruit was literally the most delicious fruit I had ever tasted. It was so sweet and so good! While I was eating it, I noticed that there was a little syrup of some sort on it. I knew that that was what was making the fruit taste so good! After the luncheon, we were cleaning up and one of the caterers was cleaning up too. We complimented her on how delicious it all was, but we couldn’t stop talking about the fruit! She mentioned that they used a honey lime sugar syrup over all of it that made it taste even more delicious than the fruit already is naturally.

I needed that recipe! I came home and searched high and low online, but had no luck at finding a recipe. So, I made my own! It isn’t exactly the same as theirs, but it is pretty darn good.
