20 Healthy Resolutions for the New Year – 2017 Food, Wine and Poopy Diapers

HAPPY 2017! I don’t normally make resolutions, because I don’t believe in waiting until January 1 to start doing positive things in my life and living the way I should be living anyway. But, this year is different. Because honestly, I’ve been abusing my body with the junk I’ve been putting into it, and I’ve been burning the candle at both ends, working hard, not practicing good self-care and mindfulness. So, I’ve decided to use this new year as the perfect starting point to turn over a new leaf. Here…

Healthy Home-Made Dog Food Recipe

As you know, I’m a busy mom to 3 lovely boys. What you may not know is that I actually have FIVE boys, counting our canine companions. Just like I enjoy making healthy and budget-friendly meals for all of us on two legs, I also make homemade, healthy (and inexpensive) food for our dogs. While our Brittany Spaniel-Lab mix, Tinsley, has an iron stomach and can eat just about anything, our older Shih-Tzu, Louie, is a very finicky eater with lots of tummy trouble. We’ve noticed a drastic improvement in…

Fit & Frugal Spicy Lentil Taco Recipe

We absolutely love lentils in our family! It all started last year when my oldest decided to become Vegan (for like one whole month!) Lentils were an absolute staple during that time, and have remained a healthy favorite and meat alternative for us! We use lentils in place of meat on sandwiches, salads, tacos, wraps, in soups, in stuffed green peppers, and so much more! Lately we’ve been loving lentil tacos. To make these yummy Spicy Lentil Tacos, I prepare my usual lentils (below), and then I season with cumin,…

Fit & Frugal Peppercorn Steak Recipe

I love flank steak! Not only because it’s delicious, but because it’s one of the more frugal cuts of meat. One big flank steak, when sliced and paired with a side dish, can easily feed a large family. I don’t buy a lot of beef these days because of the high price, but this is one recipe I definitely feel good about including in with my budget-friendly meals. And, you know it’s healthy, because it came from Medifast! Be sure to check out 5 Frugal Bikini-Friendly Summer Recipes for even…

Recipe: Chocolate Black Bean Veggie Brownies (for picky eaters)

My almost 2-year-old has gone from a fairly good eater, to a really picky eater, and this made me start to get pretty creative. I don’t want to constantly be cramming veggies down his throat, and make him hate meal times. But I also worry that he’s not getting the nutrients his little growing body needs. The kid has a love of sweets. Put a cookie or brownie in his hand, and he devours it like a little pig. So, this got my wheels turning. How could I create a…
