Cooking Workout #1: Chicken & Shoulders.

Let’s start a new trend here. This is for all of my busy mommas out there who want to get in shape, but just don’t have the time. The mommas who work all day, tend to the household duties, and the kids. The stay at home mommas who don’t have a spare minute between keeping […]

Foodie Friday: Jamie Eason’s Turkey Meatloaf Muffins.

Two things have changed in my life so far since becoming a mom. The first, it’s always going to take at least an hour for me to get out of the house now. The second? Getting my nutritional needs on target each day is a lot harder now. Eating when I’m hungry isn’t always a […]
