Busy Mom Makeup Tutorial

Hey guys!!! Soooo, last week I made a little video for you guys and shared my daily makeup routine. Well, I say daily - but if you know me in "real" life, you know I probably throw makeup on about 3-4 times/week. However, over the years I have found some tips, tricks, and products that just make me sooo happy. For us busy mamas, its all about quick and quality - who's got time to be reapplying products all day?? Certainly not me!

So this might be my first post - ever - without a recipe, but here goes. My favorite products and where you can get them. Plus of course, the video of my transformation from scary morning face, to "acceptable in public" mom face.

5 Fabulous Cookout Recipes for a Fit Family

Summer - both a blessing and a curse when it comes to staying on track with healthy eating. The good? Fresh produce everywhere, CSA's, Farmer's Markets, vegetable stands, pick your own fruit. The bad? Celebrations everywhere, beer, wine, BBQ, ice cream! I don't know about you, but locking myself in my house with clean eats really doesn't sound like a fun way to spend the summer, so instead - take charge of the menu and bring a healthy dish to share with the crowd!

Here are my 5 Favorite dishes for cookouts and parties - if you have never made quinoa, I command you to make the quinoa salad! Packed full of protein, tangy and sweet - plus chock full of superfood. You won't regret it! Whether you are doing the entertaining or arriving as a guest, these recipes will help you stay on track without compromising flavor. Yum!

Berrylicious Overnight Oats

Ok guys - so I know the word "obsessed" is used obsessively these days (hehe), but I have to say that is exactly how I feel about these overnight oats. To be honest, I had written off overnight oats a long time ago - although I love oatmeal, the recipes for overnight oats were often chewy, bland and I just plain didn't like it. I've been running my FREE Eating Groups with my coaching-partner Laura for months and she always shares a recipe for overnight oats. Everyone raves about them, and I think, ugh - not.for.me.

Ok, this week I finally gave them a try - holy, sweet, mother of God. It is like having dessert for breakfast! A deliciously sweet (yup, I have a huge sweet tooth) healthy breakfast. The texture is perfect  and feel free to change up the fruit or type of milk, but this is what works for me!


Roasted Carrots and Zucchini with Feta and Dill

Fresh Mama confession - carrots, not my favorite. Raw I can do, but cooked I always found mushy and tasteless. It wasn't until I discovered roasted carrots that the tides turned and now roasted carrots are regular part of my meal plan. This was inspired by a recipe I saw flipping through Pinterest and da-ding! All the ingredients were in my fridge. I tweaked it to suite my taste and dang, so yummy!





Peek into my Week

Hi guys! Happy Friday - It was April vacation in our neck of the woods, so I know many of you enjoyed this past week in fun, tropical locations - hopefully you are still soaking up the sun! The short version of my week, is that there isn't a whole lot to share (but do read through - because I have a yummy recipe for you!) - because we didn't do much - our Stay-cation turned into a Sick-ation with both my boys coming down with an awful tummy bug. First Colin was hit the end of last week, we had a day where everyone was ok, then Ev got hit - so much for Stay-cation plans! The original plan was to head up to NH for a day or night, hit the Lego Discovery Center in Boston, and hiking in Purgatory Chasm - but we didn't end up going anywhere! That's ok, I'm just glad no big plans were put on hold due to the cooties floating around here.


Here's Miss Jade, doing what she's best at - snuggling and napping with the boys when they don't feel well. She just loves the fluffy Red Sox blanket!


Easy BBQ Salmon

That crazy day over a year ago, when I decided to press publish on my first blog post - I had no idea where this would go.
