Morning Lovelies! You girls have been asking for more daily snaps of my meals and snacks so i’ve been trying to share more on Snap and Insta-Stories but wanted to elaborate a little more for you on here. So here is a quick Honeybee Health post with all kind of randomness lately …..
I’m not normally big on new years resolutions but I have REALLY slacked on cooking lately. It’s been a lot of throw together in hurry type of meals because we’ve all been so busy. I am on a mission on getting back to trying at least one new meal a week (or something that is a little more exciting than that easy go to pasta or tacos).
I posted this Skinny Mac Taco Chili last week and were obsessed! I got the recipe from Pinterest and basically anything by SkinnyTaste is a hit in our household. I was so excited to see you girls tagging and sending me pictures of you making it too! This one is seriously delish! I cheated slightly and just used a pre made taco seasoning from Whole Foods and also just used a regular pasta I already had (in place of the gluten free one the recipe called for). I can’t wait to share more dinners with you girls. If you have favorites (or favorite healthy recipe Pinterest accounts you love to follow PLEASE SHARE!)
A typical dinner in a hurry…. Grilled protein, steamed rice and roasted veggies. I LOVE steak but always opt for super lean cuts like filet mignon. I sautéed up some mushrooms and onions and just roasted the asparagus with a little olive oil and sea salt. You could most definitely choose a healthier grain but we just love steamed white rice in our house.
Always in my fridge
Berries are a no brainer. High in nutrients, Low Calories and the kids gobble them up!
I used to food prep ALL the time but with two kids, a new home build, and juggling blogging and the kids schedule I have SO slacked in this department. I just started getting back on track on with it (and will have a full post on all the prep I do soon). At the beginning of the week I make up a big batch of veggies. This week was roasted asparagus and sweet potatoes. I just toss them in olive oil and a little sea salt and roast on 400 for about 25 minutes (and maybe a little longer for the sweet potatoes depending on how you prefer them).
Fresh cut veggies every week. I always open them up when I’m cooking dinner and magically they all disappear.
Another prep I frequently do is ground turkey with peppers, onions, and spinach and a side of steamed rice. I make a big batch early in the week to have on hand for quick and healthy lunches.
Grocery Checkout Shot
A bunch of healthy favorites and some treats mixed in too. I’m all about healthy eating but also want my kids to grow up in a house where they remember Pancake and Bacon Sundays and chocolate chip and cinnamon rolls baking too.
Another grocery cart check in
I when almost half of my cart is filled with fruits and veggies!
My go to protein waffles and favorite peanut butter. I’ve shared these a million times because everyone in our household loves them. I also love taking them on the go because they have a hint of sweetness and can easily be eaten plain and perfect for on the go!
Another favorite breakfast i’ve shared before! These sweet potato pancakes are amazing (and the kids LOVE them too!)
I shared these new Starbuck Egg White Bites on instagram last week and they’re SO good. My only complaint is that they’re aren’t really big enough to be super filling. I prefer the egg white spinach and feta wrap if you’re looking for a something more filling. These Egg Bites are so yummy though and perfect for snacking!
If you love cottage cheese I just started getting these and LOVE them! My hubby wasn’t a huge fan (I think he thought it was yogurt lol) but this small cup is packing 16 grams of protein and only 9 grams of sugar. They’re perfect for on the go healthy snacking. The strawberry chia flavor is really good too.
and as ALWAYS treat yo’self….
I’m currently putting this post together up in the air and working on my second mimosa 😉
(hey at least i’m balancing it out with my raw almonds )
I hope you girls all have a great weekend!!!
