Thanks to Covid, I got out of the wonderful habit of cooking most of my meals at home. For about a year, I used the excuse of “well I need to support local restaurants and order out for every meal” so that I didn’t have to cook. At some point I was like, okay…I need to make a change. My friend told me about Imperfect Foods and I thought….why not give it a try. I wanted to do an Imperfect Foods review because I know a lot of people who read my stuff like to eat healthy and this is…

For as long as I can remember, I have always known what I thought I wanted for my life. As an elementary school child I always thought about how one day I would get married, have a nice house, have kids, a cute dog and just all that “stuff” that people think is required to have a good life. My mom was 30 when she had me and where I grew up she was one of the older parents. I remember as a kid thinking “oh my goodness I don’t want to be the old mom so I will definitely…

I know I know, there are a bazillion posts out there encouraging people to drink more water and giving tips on how. While I plan to give tips on how to drink more water, my ways are proven and have worked on myself and many others. My goal in life is to streamline everything I do and drinking water is included in that. I decided to choose only 5 tips on how to drink more water because I didn’t want this to feel like an overwhelming list of things people felt like they needed to do. Also, I didn’t want…

News alert! Cooking rice in coconut milk makes it 1000x better if you’re someone who likes coconut. It shocked me how much this even changed the texture of the rice. I got the idea from a blog a few years ago and pretty much haven’t gone back since. The Coconut Rice Chicken Bowl will quickly become one of your staple meals with it being easy to make and tasting great. The main ingredients are just rice, chicken, and fresh green beans. It can’t get more simple (and inexpensive) than having to just buy three main ingredients. Usually when chicken goes…

We are currently in that special time between Thanksgiving and Christmas where it’s easy to feel like anything goes. The best way to get healthy foods into my body is to find something that is easy and tastes good. Personally, I love kale so anything that I can easily add it to, I’m gonna. I am not vegan or vegetarian so sometimes I will add chicken to this dish instead of chickpeas. Usually, I do vegan meals once or twice a week because I like trying a variety of proteins and feel great afterwards. The roasted chickpea taco salad is…

Hello Hello Hello Ya know, I had a real craving the other day for something sweet and a little chocolatey. I’ve been trying hard to stay on track when it comes to eating healthier so I couldn’t just grab a Snickers bar like I wanted to. I had some garbanzo beans in the pantry figuring I would make hummus at some point and thought “hmmmmm why not try to make this into a little dessert situation”. So I did….and you’re in luck because I personally thought it was good enough to share with the world so here ya go! My…

Christmas is coming in hot this year and the need to buy gifts early is more important than ever. With shipping delays plaguing the world, gifts need to start being bought NOW if you want them here on time. Here I am saying this and have yet to buy a single gift but I have what one would call “gift anxiety”. I really like to be thoughtful about what I give people so I can’t think of anything good enough until we get to the week before and then I get desperate and get a gift card or something, ugh!…

It’s been a while since I wrote my original review about one of my favorite meal delivery services, Splendid Spoon! Since then, they have blown me away with everything new they are offering. When I first started with them it was pretty much just soups and smoothies. Don’t get me wrong, they were good, but after a few days I wanted something a little more than some soup I can sip on. I am happy to announce that in today’s world, Splendid Spoon is offering much…much more. **Disclosure: I am a professional website author that receives compensation from the companies…

Even though colder weather is approaching, morning smoothies are still always going to be my jam. Sometimes I have time to get the dozens of ingredients out that it takes to make a smoothie but MOST of the time, I don’t. That is why a smoothie delivery service is the way to go, for me at least. I switch up which service I purchase from every now and then so I don’t get bored with just one companies smoothies. Since I do that, it’s important for me to have a good list of smoothie delivery services on hand so I…

Since the pandemic, the desire to work from home has been on the rise. Everybody got a little taste of what it felt like to not have to get ready in the mornings and commute off to work. I have been working from home since last May and let me tell you, it’s the best decision I’ve ever made. Currently, I am writing this post while I sit on my couch with my heated blanket on my lap and surrounded by my dogs. For me, it doesn’t really get any better than that. On my break I might even put…
