With the holidays in full swing it can sometimes feel impossible to keep up with a healthy lifestyle due to the constant influx of treats that co-workers, family, and the internet keeps throwing your way! This is the time of year I find most people throw in the towel and say I’ll just start fresh in January because they find it too overwhelming to stay the path! That’s why I like to prep easy and healthy lunches at the beginning of the week so that I can be sure I have something nutritious and satisfying to help me resist the holiday temptations throughout the day! My easy single serving veggie ramen bowls are going to be your new favorite healthy make ahead lunch for any day of the week!
Hey hey Monday! I see you, trying to intimidate us all, making us wish it was still the weekend..but that’s not going to work this week! I’m ready for you. I woke up motivated, rested, and ready to tackle this week’s to-do list! How about you? Not so much? Don’t worry if you aren’t feeling quite as enthusiastic about Monday morning just yet, I am here to change your outlook! One of the ways I prepare for a successful week is by meal planning and lunches are the one thing that sometimes get the short end of the stick! I have had several requests for not only kid friendly lunches, but also adult lunches, and I have a great one that you can prep in advance for the week! My roasted chickpea caesar wraps are so easy to make, healthy, and satisfying to keep you going through any day of the week!
Nothing makes me more proud and happy than when my toddler inhales a bowl of food that is really good for him! I made these lobster rolls yesterday and while Parks ate his deconstructed style with the bun on the side, he ate every bite of the filling and practically shoveled it in his mouth. That's how good these are guys! If you have never had a lobster roll I think you are going to love them! I will tell you that my hubby and I fell in love with lobster rolls while we were in Maine last year, and ever since coming back I kept saying I wanted to make a healthier version at home! I finally did it and put my own twist on them and the result was incredible! My lobster rolls with avocado, corn, and tomato salad are the perfect summer dinner for any night of the week!
Summer isn't officially here, but I feel like it has already made it's way to Texas! Blazing hot days have me craving all of the light dishes I can get my hands on! Fresh salads, fruits, and smoothies are on repeat around our house lately because the thought of turning my oven on just sounds like a bad idea! I love making recipes that I can have on hand to eat on throughout the week that are ready to go in the fridge for easy and healthy lunches! My peach and fennel chicken salad is my new favorite lunch that makes for a great sandwich or lettuce wrap any day of the week!

A healthy lifestyle is something I strive to have for myself and for my family. Along with staying active, I believe the main aspect of staying healthy starts with your diet! That's why making healthy swaps like MaraNatha Almond Butters perfect for healthy snacking and recipe additions to any meal makes staying on track even easier. I love that I can shop at my local Walmart and get all of the ingredients that I need to create a delicious and healthy meal that my whole family will love! My almond butter Asian chicken and veggie soba noodle salad is the perfect lunch to meal prep and enjoy all week long!
My weekly routine has been out of whack the past couple of weeks. My gym days have been off, my diet has been decent but not great, and the reality is...that's just life sometimes. This week is the first week in a while that I feel like will be back to normal "ish" again and one thing that is going to help me stay on track is meal prepping my lunches! This means that I won't find myself eating junk and I will have a nutritious meal ready to go whenever I get hungry! My healthy curried chickpea salad is just the kind of recipe that is perfect to meal prep at the beginning of the week!
