Easy Ways to Make Everyday Foods Healthier

We all said it. Back in January, do you remember? We all promised that this would be the year we got serious about eating healthier. We know that a healthy lifestyle is important for many reasons. We want to be around a long time for ourselves, our partners and our kids. But for some reason, making that leap from wanting a healthy lifestyle to actually claiming a healthy lifestyle, is hard. Really hard.

Ideas and Inspiration for makwing your everyday foods healthier

But the best way to reach any goal is to take small steps. For the last few years, I have been taking those steps. . .usually forward, but occasionally I too, take a few steps backwards and need to get myself on the right path again. I've cut out soda from my diet. I've added a cup of warm lemon-water to my morning routine. I bought a new journal, and I take time to write. Each of these little steps, are a building block to a healthier lifestyle.

Meal Planning - 2016 Week 18

Welcome to my weekly meal planning post. Each week I share my intentions for feeding my family for the week ahead. I take time each Sunday, to get organized and plan out a menu of mostly "real food" items, in an attempt for all of us to eat healthier. In the end, when we follow the plan, we do eat healthier and we save money too. I hope you take away some ideas and inspiration for your own weekly meal plan.

Weekly Meal Planning Ideas - Real Food for Real Famiies

Well, we are surviving the spring sports season, and no one is going hungry. We also haven't increased our take-out budget, or resorted to cereal (much!). But I'm not gonna lie - it's a challenge. With a six-year age gap between my kids, they are coming and going at different times to different places, and I am their Uber Car.

Anything But Basic: How-to Style a T-Shirt and Jeans

Welcome to another weekly fashion post, where I share real fashion for real women. Each week, I highlight at least one outfit that I'm wearing right now, as well as provide ideas and inspiration to help you get dressed in the mornings. Life is hard, getting dressed shouldn't be. This week let's talk about how to style everyone's favorite basics: a t-shirt and jeans.

There is probably no more American clothing than a basic t-shirt and a pair of jeans. But this favorite stand-by doesn't have to be basic or boring. These days, t-shirts come in a wide variety of colors and textures. Many have embellishments and design details that make them more of a "blouse" then a basic t-shirt. In today's post, I'm featuring several pieces from my Spring Aventura Clothing Ambassador partnership.
