Father's Days is just around the corner. Gift giving is not always easy as my husband is SUPER PICKY. He likes something today and tomorrow he will return because he doesn't like the shirt, etc. I ordered my husband his father's day gift on Amazon and it arrived early. He was waiting on something from Amazon and thought the box that arrived was his item. However, it was his Father's day gift he opened! Therefore, I can give you a review of his gift. Here is a great father's day gift for the athlete, the recoverfun mini!
Pineapple is such a delicious fruit! When I was pregnant with my youngest, I only had fruit cravings. With pineapple being one of them. I remember eating a whole pineapple as my meal! Funny how pregnancy makes you crave certain things. Now that summer is almost officially here, what better way to grill pineapple in just 5 minutes on a hot day!
I can count with one hand how many times I have moved. Not much at all! This time around I was moving as a family of 5. Meaning more things and those "things" sure add up. I couldn't believe how many boxes I had and how much stuff actually fit into a 2 bedroom. We moved to a 4 bedroom and wow! Amazing how everything I had at the old place fit perfect in my new home. Here are some Must Have Packing Tips to Make Life Easier.
There are days I don't want meat or fish. A vegetable stir fry is perfect for a Meatless Monday Meal! Use up all the vegetables you have in your fridge, that you just have a little of. A little of this and that makes a great mix and that includes using up what you would probably through out because it's not even a serving! It makes the perfect dish in just 5 minutes! Here is my 5 minute vegetable stir fry recipe you should try!
Memorial Day is around the corner and the weather has been great. This time around, it is going to be a big celebration here in Massachusetts, as our governor is removing all COVID restrictions, starting on May 29th. Just in time for Memorial Day. Because the weather is so nice, I have started using my grill. I made a Citrus Grilled Snapper, that I have to share with you. And I thought, this would be a great meal to make on the grill. Healthy and so satisfying!
Sleep training and night weaning a toddler isn’t easy. My son is 20 months and I can now officially say my son is sleep trained and can sleep throughout the night without his “bee bee.” I have been trying to get my toddler to sleep in his crib throughout the night without nursing every 2 hours for months! Here is how I did it.
Planning a Disney trip in 2 months sounds crazy! Disney takes months if not a year or 2 to plan. It is a huge trip that is also super expensive! The reason my trip was just a couple of months of planning was because we never planned to go this year. We were planning to go next year. However, my husband's aunt invited us to stay in her Florida vacation home. We then decided to go and surprise our oldest to Disney for his birthday! It turned out to be perfect!
Since getting back from vacation and moving a week after, I haven't been interested in cooking much. I mean there has been a lot going on, including officially sleep training and night weaning my son! I'll get back into the swing of things! For lunch I made an easy vegetable platter. This was the perfect light lunch and not much cooking required!
I love making my Protein Granola Balls Dipped in Chocolate but they are protein balls. Meaning they are higher in calories for the purpose of having more protein on the go! I decided to recreate them and make low calorie energy balls with less calories. These low calorie energy balls are 80 calories a ball and I was able to make 16 of them! Super satisfying and perfect to snack on when your doing nothing, in terms of moving around at home!
