It’s Sunday, which normally means a lot of meal prepping for the week ahead, and making sure we have a smooth one! Hectic weeks are always the norm around here anyway with lots of activities, work, and the craziness that ensues with having a 2 and a 3 year old! So I like to stay ahead of the game and plan my meals and healthy snacks before that #manicmonday rolls around!
These past five months have been educational as I move towards eating a lot healthier, and fully understand what we are putting in our bodies. It all started in December when my mother landed in ICU because of a diabetes crash for over 3 days. I can’t even put into words what I was feeling, and what our entire family went through. It was life altering for all of us to really make strides in eating the right stuff, and cutting out the crap, like sugar.
Sugar is just awful and it’s practically in EVERYTHING. As I was doing the whole 30 a couple of weeks ago, it taught me so much about reading labels and really understanding the ingredients. You guys. Learn to read those labels. You’ll know how much you’re consuming immediately…
Now don’t get me wrong. I haven’t cut it completely out, but I definitely make a serious effort in watching how much sugar I take. Enter Zevia! Products like Zevia have definitely helped with finding balance! Sugar free and no artificial sweeteners! So I took it and ran with it! Decided to take this yummy ginger ale and put a spin on a regular moscow mule, to turn it into a sugar free spicy mango moscow mule!
Easter is just around the corner which means a giant feast is in the near future!! My kids love ham so when CUREMASTER RESERVE reached out to try one of their amazing hams, I was game!! =)
We loved this ham quite a bit and it was truly amazing! It’s not everyday that you get to eat a ham that is hand-crafted and hardwood smoked with pecan chips, like this Vermont Maple Ham! YUM!!
Sundays… Always a day of endless errands, laundry, prepping, grocery shopping, and just preparing for the week ahead. Because I’m doing whole 30, it requires a little more work for sure to make sure I don’t “break” during the week! I talk more about this shortly!!!
Nonetheless, I just wanted to do a lil’ round-up of random things that I’m obsessed with lately because I just wanna share the love!!
Raising two toddlers who probably say the word “snack” about 50 times a day can get quite exhausting! Not to mention, you run out of options really quickly from a healthy standpoint. They only want to eat so much fruit before they start asking for fruit snacks. *sigh*
