Workouts during naptime, and encouraging healthy eating and a variety of foods for her girls. Motivating Mom Chrissy shares how she does it.

I’m happy I am sticking to a regular fitness schedule during naptimes.

I love hearing stories from other moms, especially those who are committed to living a healthy lifestyle and raising a healthy family. I’m very inspired by other moms and I love to hear how they stay committed to setting a healthy example for their little ones and raising a healthy family.

School Lunch Ideas: healthy foods and the best containers

School has been in session for a couple months now. In September we’re all armed with school lunch ideas and a plan to pack perfectly balanced lunches throughout the year. It’s not easy to keep up creative, healthy, cold lunches all year long!

Are your lunch ideas getting a little stale at this point?

After a good 30+ cold lunches packed this year, we’ve fine tuned it and found our favorite lunch bags, containers, as well as snack and drink containers. We also have some of our kiddos’ school lunch ideas to show you for some inspiration, and links to other helpful school lunch ideas to boost your creativity!

My Day Friday Accountability Check In: Week 10

After once again skipping a week for my accountability check in, you can guess how I’m doing…

The busy summer, along with the stress of work, has me saying a lot of maybe tomorrow‘s and doing a bit of emotional eating. I’m determined to be honest with myself and put the full story out there. So often I will unconsciously hide all the rough moments, but here they are….

Blueberry Pecan Salad with Blueberry Vinaigrette {3 Dishes with Frozen Wild Blueberries}

My kiddos love blueberries, but we had never tried Wild Blueberries until we were asked to try them on behalf of Moms Meet. We received product for review and, just like my unfiltered kiddos, all opinions are honest and my own.

Have you ever made a whole meal with blueberries?

I took on the challenge of creating 3 Dishes with Wild Blueberries and each turned out more amazing than I could imagine! I’ll be sharing each of them over the next couple weeks and you can make a delicious meal with blueberries too!

This sweet and tangy salad is a delicious start to any meal or on it’s own. You’ll love it!

Slow Cooker Lentil Tacos and Crunchy Popped Lentils Salad Topper

Today you’re getting TWO amazing recipes for the price of one!

Combine them and you have one killer (meatless, but you’ll never miss it!) taco salad!

The easiest taco filling ever, and so delicious my carnivore hubby raves.  These lentils are so flavorful you’ll never miss the meat.  They are also so easy you won’t want to make tacos any other way!

I also have a delicious Crunch Lentil Salad Topper to finish off your Taco Salad.  So good you’ll want to snack on them alone, but save them for the salad and you won’t be sorry!

Peanut Butter Banana Overnight Oats

I was a little slow to jump on the overnight oats train, but I am so happy I finally did!!

If you follow me on twitter and Instagram, I rave about them all the time!  I think I’ve shared the recipe about ten times by now.  Why it took me so long to share it here, I have no idea…

There are a million different ways to make your own overnight oats, but this is the recipe I used the first time I tried them and it has been love ever since.  I’ve never been an oatmeal fan, but this is like a dessert for breakfast and the consistence is a bit thinner which is why I love it so much.  The sweetness of the banana and peanut butter, with the touch of cinnamon – delicious!

Here it is, my all-time favorite Overnight Oats Recipe!

Ham Asparagus & Egg White Cups: great make-ahead on-the-go breakfast

I’m sharing a tasty recipe that I won’t be eating today because it’s Ash Wednesday, but these Ham Asparagus & Egg White Cups are delicious! They’re also a great way to make a breakfast ahead of time, keep in the fridge or freeze, and have something on hand to grab when you’re short on time in the morning.

This is a way better option than grabbing a protein bar on the go, or *gasp* skipping all together!
