Easy & healthy lunch idea!

Need an easy lunch idea to take to work, or just for a day you feel like eating healthy and light?

I've been on a salad kick lately, so it is no surprise that this post includes salad. Here's what I made for lunch:

Lettuce
Shredded chicken breast (cooked in crockpot)
Pico de gallo
Zucchini sautéed & seasoned with Mrs Dash
Fat free balsamic vinegar dressing

Mix them all together into a bowl or plate and it makes for an easy, good tastung lunch.

Cute buy of the day: Disney Baby

How adorable is this Woody onesie from Disney Baby!? I found it at the Disney store and absolutely had to have it. Toy Story is such a classic movie and our son is a huge fan of Woody.

Brody has his own Woody costume as well as boots. So how fun for his brother to match him. The boots are so cute too, and the best part was it all being on sale!

Dinner idea: Spaghetti squash

Need a new dinner idea? Try this simple but delicious dinner idea perfect for the weekday.

All you need is:
Spaghetti squash
2% cheese (I used mozzarella & cheddar)
Marinara sauce
Shredded chicken or chopped whole chicken
Seasoning

We had shredded chicken that was cooking on HIGH throughout the day! First I preheated the oven to 350. Then I chopped the spaghetti squash, cleaned it of seeds. I seasoned them with Mrs Dash's Garlic Herb seasoning (did this with the chicken as well).

The spaghetti squash took about an hour to cook and soften. Afterwards I added the desired amount of marinara, little bit of shredded chicken and topped it with cheese. I let it cook in the oven 3-5 minutes or until cheese is melted.

This is a delicious dinner idea, would be good served with salad too.

Breakfast treat: bacon & egg bagel!

I am all for eating healthy, as I do most of the time in addition to working out. That doesn't mean I don't treat myself or go outside healthy only foods.

I recently tried something mouthwatering to try, and makes for a delicious brunch or breakfast treat.

The hubby made us all bacon, sunny side up eggs, and we toasted half of a Thomas everything bagel to enjoy this deliciousness. I think avocado would be good to try as well!

The garden has been planted!

Finally after our planted seeds we started indoors became quite big we transported them to the garden. It was the perfect warm and sunny afternoon to so so. Plus the kids got to help, so even better!

Gardening is a great green activity for the kids to get involved in.
