Cooking with Pinterest; mostly diet friendly addition!
I love this recipe because it was simple and I had all the ingredients! The downside is while the nuts, EVOO and spices were diet friendly the amount of nuts I used was not. So I unfortunately won’t be repeating this meal.
This recipe is tasty and a great way to incorporate more veggies. I used the original spaghetti squash recipe from Pinterest and added bell peppers and spicy sausage to it (no sauce). Another win but this one will make it back into the rotation.
This has been one of my favorites! It includes cabbage, ground turkey, black beans and 1/2 tbsp of Costco salsa plus Cholula. It is fast, easy and can be prepared ahead of time.
I wanted to switch up our cheat days by only eating out for one meal and buying snacks. Below are my reasons for doing so:
- Save money
- Stay in cooking mode making it easier to return to cooking all our meals
- Slightly healthier than eating out all day
- Allows me to try new things that we can’t eat during the week
This was the end of our first 4 weeks. I specify weeks because I’m counting my month as the 12th however we’ve technically already finished a 4 week period. Anyways I will be trying to work out a publishing schedule that allows me to post one food, life change, married life and parent life update per month. I’m not sure how this schedule should go or if it’ll be in the same order every month but this is my writing goal. I want to hold myself accountable for getting out and doing something with my family while getting fit and cooking. This blog will be the place I do that. I hope you join me on my ever changing journey to the best mommy I can be 🙂
PS I’ll have two posts this week since tomorrow is the 12th
