Cashew Chicken Fingers

99% of the time when I cook, my goal (besides making really delicious food) is to be quick and no fuss. I also like making things that my kids will enjoy because life is just easier that way.

Most kids I know love chicken fingers, and I think most adults like (love😍) them too. My husband and I sometimes joke that we had kids just so we could order chicken fingers at restaurants and not feel like we are children. Now we can eat half of their order and know one will know it was basically for us 🤗  Read more

Get it done, quick.

Happy Tuesday! I hope you all had a lovely long weekend! Mine was fairly routine, busy but it felt productive. I got a few workouts in, took the kids to the park so they could play all their sports and burn off some energy, Luke got a kite for his birthday so I promised him we would go fly the thing.  I also worked on the blog and on Saturday night I motivated myself to go through and purged/organize my kitchen cupboards. My social life is onnnnn fire 🙈lol Read more

Home Workout & Prioritizing Your Health

Here’s the thing, if you care about your body, if you care about how you look and feel, then you need to make time for healthy things, it’s as simple as that.  If you care for other people, this is all the more reason why you should be making your own health a priority. What does that mean?  You need to move your body for at least 30 minutes every day with intention. Some days it might be putting on your running shoes and going for a brisk walk or run during your lunch break, maybe doing a workout at home while the kids are sleeping. Whatever it is, it needs to be physically challenging. Read more
