What I’m Loving Lately

I wanted to share kind of a random round-up of things I’ve been loving lately. Just a note on all of these, this post isn’t sponsored. I’m just sharing these because I actually love it myself and want to tell you guys about it. So let’s get started! Beautycounter With my recently health transition, I’ve even started thinking about products we’re using in our house and if they’re safe. My friend Meghan sells Beautycounter and recently lent me a ton of their products. I got to try their skin care routine, the kid’s products for the girls and a bunch of...

48 hours in San Francisco

I just got back from a very quick 48 hours on the west coast in San Francisco. It was a whirlwind of work (some video shoots for Union) mixed with some fun side trips downtown.  When I booked the trip, I was super excited for some northern California weather – mainly sunshine and moderate temperatures. Things didn’t go as expected though and it literally rained almost the entire time I was there. And not even like light, misting rain – more like monsooning, hard rain. It definitely made for an interesting time, and I’ll never leave home without a rain...

Happy Valentine’s Day, Trevor!

Wow! Two posts in one day, but I wanted to wish Trevor a very happy Valentine’s Day. We’ve been married for almost 10 years (holy crap!) and been together for 14 years total.

So a really big Happy Valentine’s Day to my BFF and most critical taste tester 🙂 You’re an awesome hubby and even better father.   ...

Turkey Chili

It’s been quite snowy at our house (just about a foot of snow or so on Sunday) so this Turkey Chili really hits the spot these days. It’s the perfect hearty, healthy meal. In the winter, it can be hard to eat well because all I want are just warm comfort foods. Turkey Chili is the perfect answer to that – hearty, warm and filling, but guilt-free. If you haven’t made the leap to using ground turkey, this is a great recipe to start with. We try to limit our red meat consumption these days, but ground turkey is a...

Healthy Meal Plan – Weeknight Meals

Healthy eating can be really tough on weeknights. It’s usually time-consuming and involves a lot of steps, which isn’t conducive to your happiness when you have two young kids whining for dinner. We’ve been doing a good job of eating delicious dinners that also happen to be good for you. Here’s our healthy meal plan for this week:  Sunday: One-Pan Pesto Chicken and Veggies  Monday: Turkey Chili (I made this today for tomorrow’s dinner because it saves time and its always better the next day; this recipe will also be posted on Tuesday!)  Tuesday: Crockpot Pork Tenderloin with Sweet Potato...
