Cheesy Stuffed Meatballs

WARNING! The cheese you see in the picture is exactly what it looks like in person! It is rare that my husband and I have a dish that we both like that we both enjoy having for dinner. Hey, I am just stating facts. I love spicy, he likes bland, he likes burnt brussels sprouts, I don't, I love Mexican.. he.. gasp.. hates Mexican. But these little cheesy babies.. they are loved by both of us.

Coconut Chai Protein Smoothie

I have the most amazing and delicious recipe to share with all of you! Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I know what you are thinking... BUT I DON'T HAVE TIME! Well, make time! So many studies show that by eating breakfast you actually eat less calories throughout the day. Plus it gives you energy! If your excuse for not eating breakfast is because you have no time than this recipe is for you!

Challenge is Over! Some things I learned about eating healthy!

Hi Everyone! Sorry I was MIA last week. Work was INSANE and I legit did not have a night to blog. I made all of my favorites that have helped me lose weight during this challenge like curried cauliflower soup,grilled chicken skewers, and quinoa cucumber-avocado salad!)And for good reason! In a month I lost 8 pounds! For a shorty like me that is like another person! And that was with working out the same amount as I have been ( 3-4 times per week.) Whoop!
Some things I discovered about myself this month.

Cucumber & Avocado Quinoa Salad


Hooray! My kickboxing Healthy Lifestyle challenge  is over!I have my final weigh in Friday so I will let you know how much weight I lost! Not that having a healthy lifestyle will fall by the wayside. My friends and I plan on continuing this challenge for the next year. But more importantly I can now have a much deserved glass of wine. I actually missed drinking this month much less than I expected to.As for healthy eating,  I have probably made this salad twice a week during this challenge because it is full of protein, good fats and tastes delicious! Even better, it keeps me full for so long!
