Healthy Eats & Tasty Treats {Insta Art}

The theme of my eats over the past few months has been quick and easy.   I’ve given breakfasts a little more attention because I’ve been at home and had more time- lunches are eaten at work and after a long day, cooking dinner < relaxing.  But that’s not to say my eats haven’t been tasty…  Sometimes the most satisfying meals are the simplest!

Thankfully, since things have calmed down over the past few weeks, I’ve gotten back into the kitchen.  I’ve had fun baking on the weekends [Beginner Banana Bread and Pumpkin Raisin Muffins *recipe will be posted soon*] and putting our crock pot to use for easy weeknight meals [Cuban Chicken Chili]…  Ryan and I are both looking forward to more home cooking and less heat-and-eat style meals :)



P.S.  Yesterday’s #liveleaneatgreen October Photo A Day Challenge was to leave an Operation Beautiful note somewhere.  I dropped off my note at Whole Foods but since it was the lunch hour, all the aisles were hustling and busting.  I didn’t want to be “that girl” holding everyone up taking pictures so I jumped at the first change I got, I was in the frozen foods aisle…  I felt like a big dork and any passerby probably thought I was taking pictures of Stonyfield fro-yo [which is one of my favorites, yum] but I loved the thought of someone finding my note!  We all have those days when we could use a little pick me up…  I totally plan to leave more notes!

  1. You are making me drool with all of your yummy eats!

  2. Y-uuum. I read HTP so I’ve head of the project, but I’ve yet to leave a note. I should!

  3. I love Operation Beautiful! About a year ago, I wrote 10 post-it notes, placed them on the covers of fitness magazines, and left them in the rack at my gym. It made me so happy knowing that a few simple words might completely change somebody’s day!

    Girl, you’ve had some amazing eats over the past few months! I agree–simple is often best! I spy a Banana Bread Larabar–one of my faves. Have you tried the Bananas Foster Uber Larabar? It’s even more amazing! xoxo

    • Thanks!!! I’m thinking of making it a weekly thing, I loved thinking about someone finding it :) You should join! And unfortunately I have not tried it- I got a sample in my Birchbox a month or two ago but my husband ate it before I could 😛

  4. Your eats look great, super noms going on there :) Love operation beautiful! It is such a positive message and your note posted is awesome!!!!


  1. […] A Day Challenge.  One of the challenges last week was to leave an Operation Beautiful note- I left my note in the frozen foods aisle at Whole Foods!  Thinking that a random person would find my note was initially a bit overwhelming, “What […]
