Weekly Family Meal Plan 2017 - Week 13

Weekly Meal Plan Ideas sharing real food for real families. Save time and money by planning easy menus for your family.

Happy Monday meal planners! I don't know about you, but I feel like I hit a brick wall with this week's meal plan. Spring sport season is always busy for us, with the addition of unseasonably snowy and cold weather, we are REALLY off our game and haven't settled into a reliable schedule quite yet.

And while I have made a conscious effort to make ourselves "less busy", this week takes my breath away a little. We have an after-school dentist appointment, three high school lacrosse games and two high school lacrosse practices, two club lacrosse practices, one before-school band practice and one evening club meeting. I am a mom of two boys, who only play one sport and one instrument each. Only my high school student is involved in an after-school club. By today's standards, that is NOT a lot of activities, but this week it seems overwhelming!

Weekly Family Meal Plan 2017 - Week 12

Weekly Meal Plan Ideas sharing real food for real families. Save time and money by planning easy menus for your family.

Good morning friends and welcome! Happy First Day of Spring! Our ground is still mostly covered with snow and it's int he 20s this morning, so I'm holding off on the seersucker and sandals for a bit more. But I must say that the change to the spring season rejuvenates me.  Even though for us, it's a busy season, that sunshine really helps my mood, creativity and productivity.

 Having said that, I did a little recipe exploration this weekend, in search of some easy, whole-food ideas that everyone would eat. It is NOT easy. But by taking a little time to peruse some Whole 30 and 21 Day Fix menus, I was able to gain just the amount of inspiration I needed, to apply some of those ideas to my own meal plan.In addition, I am trying to do better for breakfast and lunch for myself, but that's a WHOLE OTHER THING!

Think Spring With Planet-Friendly Clothing From prAna

It is March here in Pennsylvania. While I may be strolling the mall, looking at adorable light-weight spring fashions in pretty colors, the temperature is 28 degrees and snow and sleet are falling from the sky. But that can't stop me from thinking spring. I am dreaming of warm days, lighter clothes, and relaxing days.

Think Spring With Planet Friendly Clothing From prAna

There is just something about spring . . .those first blades of green grass, the crocus and daffodils and feeling the warmth from a ray of sunshine. I am over my winter wardrobe. I am ready to break out lighter fabrics, brighter colors and fun shoes. I recently partnered with prAna to bring you this fun spring look, that will take you right into the warm days of summer. prAna designs clothing that looks good, but is versatile for any lifestyle and any adventure. These pieces work great together, but are also wardrobe basics that you can pair with almost anything else in your closet!
