Clean Eating Plantain Fritters

Looking for a sweet treat to share with your love on Valentine's Day, but don't want to go crazy with the calories and sugar?? Well, here you go! Clean Eating Plantain Fritters for the win!

This recipe came about due to my love of tostones - I haven't had any in ages, because twice fried does not exactly scream clean eats and honestly - I have no clue where I would even get good ones around here...Goya does have a nice frozen version, but just not the same!

So, you're wondering - why the plantains??? Well - actually on the 21 Day Fix eating plan, plantains are the second most nutrient dense carbohydrate (after my other love - sweet potatoes!). So, I thought why not create a healthy version of delicious tostones!

This will be the first in a series of blog posts dedicated to sharing the secret to a successful capsule wardrobe! Make sure to subscribe to my blog so you don't miss a post!

Meal Plan of the Week and FREE 4-Day Fit Club

Ack! It's Monday and I'm just now writing up this week's meal plan for you guys!!! As I mentioned in this Previous Post - the book Better than Before has rocked my habit-forming world for getting the New Year off to the right start.

So today, as I sit here typing - I realized I need to plan my menu earlier in the week! I mean duh- right? I shouldn't wait until Saturday to start thinking about it - that is just too late and then I'm cramming in the recipe planning + shopping all in a day or so. Then, I'm late to the game in getting the post up to you guys, so here's my accountability that next week - the post will be up and DONE for Sunday night!

Take a peek at what's going on in my kitchen this week - and oh, boy am I looking forward to dinner on Thursday and Friday night - drooling already!

Fresh Mama Finds: All things COCONUT!

Let it be known that I looooooove coconut - sadly though, no one else in my family likes it. I can sneak it into granola, or use coconut milk in curries, but otherwise, they turn up their noses.  Hence, my love of coconut has fallen to the wayside...

Well, recently it has been re-ignited the tastiest of ways - so today I'm sharing a few finds that have brought coconut back into my life without complaints from my crew!

Meal Plan of the Week

Its Monday again - and although I wrote out my meal plan and did my shopping already, I'm just now getting this up on the blog for you guys...Another busy weekend full of hockey, soccer, time on the slopes, and watching a (hugely disappointing) football game with friends..sigh. There's always next year!

Crockpot Spicy Sausage Bean Soup

Yup its cooooooold in New England! Like high of 16 cold, like - jacking the heat up and not giving a crap about the heating bill cold and "please fill my belly with some warm soup" cold! You get the idea - and this spicy soup is exactly what's needed to get through these cold winter days. So simple, but full of flavor. Your family will be begging for second helpings!
