When my family gets together for dinner, we try to create meal options that the whole family can enjoy. Since half of my family is vegetarian, a favorite is falafel and gyro night. Many of the ingredients in falafels and gyros overlap, so it’s easy…
Two things that I could wear for the rest of me life…good denim and a cozy tee. Casual and comfy to the max but still put together. When I think about closet essentials, a classic tee and my favorite distressed denim come to mind first. This outfit combines the two well and really takes no effort at all. To change things up, I knotted the extra fabric on the side. Easy peasy.
Meal prepping is the ultimate time and energy saver during a busy week. It just takes 3 hours on a weekend to prepare everything for the week. If you think about it, cooking dinner every night adds up to 7-8 hours, so meal prepping saves at least 3-4 hours! Also, there is no better feeling than having dinner ready when you get home from a tiring work day. The Instant Pot can make meal prepping even easier. It cuts cook time down and creates meals that are full of flavor. At first, I was slightly terrified of my Instant Pot. Pressure cookers just sound scary, but after hearing rave reviews I gave it a try and now love using it weekly. I have a huge list of Instant Pot recipes that I want to try for our meal prep, here are a few of them.
For some reason, I’ve always been a fan of fashion bags that aren’t the most practical. Especially in an office setting where you need to carry around a lot of stuff. The circle bag is cute and all, but it can barely fit my iPhone+, let alone a lunch and laptop. So, totes are the way to go when you’re essentially lugging around your entire life in one bag. My new rule when searching for a bag is: can it fit my Macbook?
Almond butter: the creamy, delicious and healthy nut butter that is jam packed with great flavors and lots of nutrients. I jumped on the almond butter wagon after eating THE BEST granola cups with almond butter inside. Y’all, these granola bars are life changing and probably the best snack I’ve ever had. So now I am adding almond butter to anything and everything! What I’m most surprised about are the savory almond butter recipes. The sauces all sound amazing and I know what I’ll be trying this weekend.
SALE ALERT! I found myself browsing through Target’s furniture and home decor section online and noticed that a ton of Target’s Project 62 line is on sale. The Project 62 products follow the mid-century modern theme with a little bit of glam added in. The best part is, the whole line is very affordable.
Looking fun ways to add more veggies into your daily routine? Sandwiches that are jam packed with leafy greens are a great alternative to salads. Have you every had a green goddess sandwich? I felt out of the loop when I first tried the classic Californian dressing. It quickly and easily became one of my favorites. Combine spinach, chives, anchovies, garlic, lemon juice, vinegar, and mayonnaise for flavor filled goodness! Many of these green sandwich recipes have a green goddess base. The dressing is just THAT GOOD with leafy greens. So if you’ve been looking for creative ways to get more greens into your diet, try one of these green sandwich recipes.
Amazon Fashion is killing it with so many great clothing options at unbeatable prices. I easily find myself getting lost in the search and love when I find my favorite brands being sold on the retailer. I recently made an Amazon workout attire haul and thought I would share my favorites that are all under $100. Some workout brands that I found include Lululemon, Alo Yoga, and Maaji.
