Welcome to the newest section addition to my blog: Photography! I have been trying to branch out from just food photography and photograph people, too! I love the idea of photographing babies, children, families, and most especially, weddings! I hope to eventually have a side business doing this – once I get better! Anyway, here…

Meal Plan: Day 3!

Happy Sunday everyone! How has the New Year been treating you? Has anyone tried to follow along these meals plans? I know it will be much more helpful one I compile more days on here for guidance, but always just use these days as a guide for others! Example: mix it up by changing out…

Day 2! Meal Planning 2014

Hi all! As promised, each Sunday (and hopefully more if I have time! We’re moving homes soon…) you will get a new day in your meal plan schedule to slim down and shape up in 2014. Let me know how you like it! Make sure to fit in some exercise into your days to increase…

Loaded Quinoa Stir-Fry

I am big on getting a big serving size for a small amount of calories. Perhaps I even eat too many massive bowls of just lettuce with vinegar. (I know that sounds weird, but I don’t eat it because I want to lose weight or anything, I eat it because I literally crave it!) Anyway,…

Waffle Sandwich

Who says you have to be a child and/or take in a zillion calories to have a waffle sandwich? This slimmed-down sandwich is all kinds of good! At less than 250 calories, this breakfast (or lunch or dinner!) meal is packed with whole grains, spinach, and protein. Yay! I will take you back a couple…
