When I ask you what kind of recipes you want more of over on Instagram I consistently get the same response- we want easy breakfasts! I get it, mama- breakfast just so happens to fall during a HARD time of the day- and it can be easy for us mamas to put our kiddos’ breakfasts […]

Meal Prep Egg Cups: 3 ways

Recipes

I love a good meal prep lunch recipe, especially in the busyness of summer. For us, summer is a whirlwind of camp and preschool drop-off, all of which have different drop-off and pick-up times each week and activities with one or both kids in between, often during the lunchtime hours- so a lunch I can […]

Herby Chopped Chicken and Chickpea Salad

Recipes

I love an easy meal prep lunch recipe on a busy week. Especially when it’s a mason jar salad! These simple to throw together, but super flavorful meal prep jars have become a staple for our weekly meal prep, at least a couple times a month. The simple cucumber dill salad, tangy feta and salty-briny […]

Meal Prep Recipe: Greek Quinoa Meal Prep Jars

Recipes

I love a good muffin- they’re the perfect little sweet, but sorta-healthy snack or quick one-handed breakfast (we like to serve them with a little something on the side, like eggs or a smoothie- but sometimes, you’ve gotta do what you’ve gotta do, mama!). I also love finding nutrient dense alternatives to regular old’ white […]

Cassava Flour Muffins (3 ways)

Recipes

Ok my friends, I promise ALL my recipes here to be approved by myself and my husband- at least twice– and if I promote it as ‘kid-friendly’ or ‘kid-approved’, both my five year old and one year old devoured it (more than once). THIS recipe– this might just be the best kid recipe of 2019– […]

Kid-friendly Taco Chicken Fingers

Life is full, in our house, and time to prep elaborate meals is hard to come by. I’m sure you mamas can relate– which is why I am ALL about prepping ahead as much as possible to make healthy dinners happen. In fact, I just posted a long-overdue meal prep over on Youtube with how I […]

Quinoa Fajita Casserole

One of my favorite food prep items is muffins! They’re perfect as part of a quick breakfast, a mid-morning snack with some coffee or as an afternoon pick me up between lunch and dinner. I created these for the sample meal plan with my Healthy Mama Meal Planner and I can’t get over how simple […]

Lemon Poppyseed Muffins

Recipes

Sometimes the simplest recipes turn out to be the best, right? Meal prepping lunch is an essential, in our house. If not, mama goes hangry far too often! My husband keeps it simple with deli meat rolls and my daughter’s lunches are fairly similar (you can check out the lunches I make for her on […]

Pesto Chicken Salad

Recipes

Back in 2013 when I was pregnant with Sage, a friend recommended I prep a whole bunch of meals to freeze before baby. Wait, you mean prep– for myself?! I spent my days working as a personal chef and never thought to do it for myself. So I mapped out a couple days to spend […]

The best thing I did to prepare for a healthy postpartum

Pregnancy

  Ahh, breakfast. It’s usually the most neglected (ok, maybe next to snacks) meal of the day- and certainly for meal prepping mamas. But breakfast can be a C-RAZY time of the day! At least it is in my house, and I only have 1.25 kids (and a husband, the .25 is in my belly!). […]
