mini-meal prep

As much as I love reaping the benefits of meal prepping, I don’t always have the time/energy/motivation. But that doesn’t mean I’ll be happy with myself later if I don’t pack any food at all before a 3-day trip. The solution? Mini-meal prepping, where I still consider how I can

weekly veggie boxes

My sweet neighbor upstairs works with a local farm, Kirsop Farms, here in Washington, helping them partner with farmer’s markets around town. Back in May, she told us about weekly vegetable boxes they offer for only $25. Local, organic produce left at my back door like a gift from Santa?

Being away from home for days at home means temptations are around every turn, from airport fast food to hotel room service, all vying for my dollars and will power. In keeping my lunchbox healthy, I not only have more control over my weight, but I also have more energy
