Meal Planning Monday – Tips!

Meal Planning is a huge tool, but sometimes it can be overwhelming! My husband I don’t really plan out our dinners because we like to go based on what tickles our fancy that day, but I especially am looking to do a little more of it to really maximize our savings and usage of groceries (I really loathe wasting food or having to throw it away!)

Here are some helpful tips to make it a little less intimidating!

  • Overlap your ingredients – by selecting recipes with like ingredients, you are minimizing how much you have to buy and maximizing savings!
  • Use the grocery circulars to inspire your meals based on what is on sale, also maximizing your savings (this girl loves a sale!)
  • Keep your eyes on the nutrition facts – make sure your week is balanced, with plenty of fresh fruits and veggies, and lean proteins.
  • Allow a cheat meal – when you keep it healthy and clean 6 nights a week, one splurge dinner (or lunch, whatever), won’t hurt you – just make it count!

Start with a few basic meal planning tips, and work your way forward. It will get easier, and you will certainly be better off for it!

(Almost) Sugar Free Saturday – Cinnamon Roll Muffins

I have never met a Cinnamon roll I didn’t like. The struggle is really real… they are one of my weaknesses, especially when still warm…. they just.. ohh… sooo good.

Sorry, lost my train of thought there! BUT… as good as they are, most versions aren’t healthy, and have high sugar and carb counts. I know, it makes ME sad too.

Healthier recipes to the rescue!🙂

Thursday Thoughts – Believe

The day you believe there is nothing you can’t do, is the day there truly is nothing you can’t do.

Love this. Belief is like the one ingredient you can’t substitute. Belief is like baking – due to its nature, its precise… if you don’t have the proper amount of certain things, your cake wont set, or your cookies will be flat, so on and so forth. It’s not like cooking, where you have much more freedom to improvise.

When you believe in yourself, you set the mental note for any of those doubts; you put them on notice that while they may try to derail you, you will fail forward and keep on trucking. When you truly believe that you can overcome whatever obstacles are placed in your way, YOU CAN. But without that belief, those obstacles don’t seem scalable. They don’t seem like something you can overcome.

You’ve gotta BELIEVE to ACHIEVE.
