The other day I shared what we were eating for dinner on an IG story. I had a lot of messages requesting the recipe so I decided to share it here for everyone:


Ingredients
16 shrimp, thawed and peeled
Riced cauliflower and sweet potato
Spinach
Diced white onion
1/2 cup flour
1/3 cup coconut milk
2 eggs

Instructions:
{{For less cooking time thaw shrimp and frozen vegetables in microwave}}
Place thawed riced cauliflower in a baking dish
Top with spinach and diced onion
Top with prepared shrimp
Combine flour, coconut milk and eggs and pour over shrimp
Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes, or until warmed through. •
TIPS:
To make eating healthy easy I have frozen riced cauliflower, frozen spinach and frozen diced onion on hand at all times. It makes last minute dinner ideas super easy!!! My oldest absolutely devoured it. But my 3-year-old won't touch anything I swear. Is it a phase? How do you get your toddlers to eat something other than bread and crackers?💋

This is my favorite part of working out 💙💙💙 I'm seriously obsessed with these protein bars.
They do cost a pretty penny BUT exercising and eating one of these is a lot better than what I was doing even a month ago. I was stuck in the biggest rut walking around like a zombie all day and stopping at the drive thru so I could get something off the dollar menu. Which by the way still costs a lot of money in the long run🤦🏼‍♀️
So I've gotten over the price and I'm just happy I'm making better decisions for me and my family💙
I've have found with protein bars that I have to be really careful and check labels because so many protein bars have added sugar. These do not 👊🏻
They do have whey in them which is another word for milk but it hasn't seemed to negatively effect my baby and it's the only dairy I get all day. So I think it's safe to eat for him👶🏼💙
What is your favorite post workout meal or snack? .

Honey Balsamic Pulled Pork. Raise your hand if you want to make this for me for dinner🙋🏼 Sharing @simplydarrling recipe on this week's linky party and I can't wait to try.
Bonus for me, it's dairy free, which I'm currently doing for my baby. Have you ever eaten dairy free before? .

Weird picture to share I know. Having three 9-pound babies did a real number on my tummy. Namely diastasis recti. I'm on the long road to closing it...fingers crossed I won't need surgery to close the space.
I've been working with a personal trainer @coachnicco who through his app keeps me accountable every single day. (He works remotely so he could even help you if you wanted/needed). Workouts and inspiration dedicated just for me and I can't even tell you how motivating and helpful it is.
Maybe someday I'll show you my before photos...once my body's back to "normal" haha. Ive only been working with Nicco for a month and I've already noticed a huge improvement.
Here's to hard work, determination and showing my boys how to eat healthy...not just telling them. They're getting old enough that they want my soda, but that's not healthy for them so it's obviously not healthy for them. Working on myself so I can be a good example to them.
Anyone else have DR?💋

We updated our boys bathroom...this project can be done in ONE weekend. {{Link to how we did it in profile}}
Now that we know what we're doing it's time to do the master bathroom. I love how it turned out.

Keeping it real ...opening packages on our front porch in his underwear😂He would not get dressed!!!! Why do boys do that?
On another note...we got a piñata that doesn't require a bat! My son wanted a piñata but we don't really have a good place to hang one, then I found this one! I'm so excited, the kids pull a string and like Jenga the candy will come tumbling out when the correct one is chosen. .

Check out my Insta-story! I'm sharing our fun party plans and some great beauty products today!
Including this from @purity_puristry cosmetics. They have a 6-piece set exclusive to Anthro. I love products like this because they're completely natural, which my very sensitive skin needs!

If you can't tell my boys are excited about the candy we are putting in our TMNT piñata. It's going to be an epic party I think💙💙💙
