Five on Friday

Friday, February 27, 2015

TGIF!! Hope you're all looking forward to a nice relaxing weekend. Can you believe March is just around the corner? How did that happen? I'm sure those of you knee deep in snow aren't complaining though! Just some random things on Friday...

Lunch dates with Mike at the ChopShop. I love this place and it has some of the yummiest sandwiches and salads. Plus, I love a great chalkboard wall!

The Easter bunny is really stepping up his game this year with these Jellies from Zara!

Speaking of bunnies, I thought this was just about the cutest thing ever! I gave Odette some carrots the other day and she put them in her shopping cart with Lily :) Apparently, bunnies get hungry when they shop too lol. I just love her so much!

I added this piece of wall art by our front door with this bowl from Z Gallerie to hold our keys and sunnies. It already looks a thousand times better without the clutter by the door!

 Last but not least, some words of encouragement! Just another great Pinterest find.
 
Hope you all have a lovely weekend! Do you have any fun weekend plans?

Healthy Eating

Wednesday, February 25, 3015

Good morning loves! I've gotten a few requests on my IG, @dettecakes, lately to share a meal plan. Generally, I try to do one big Costco trip a month and then pick up perishable items from Fresh and Easy or Winco during the rest of the month. I've tried to snap a few shots of some of our family dinners, lunches and snacks, so here we go...

 I picked up this salad for myself a few weeks ago and it was so yummy!

My go to snack is usually hummus and carrots. I have such an addiction to hummus lol!
 
 I love Fresh and Easy pre-seasoned meats. They make dinner a snap and always taste delicious!

Garlic Pork Tenderloin (pictured above) on a bed of mixed veggies.

 Chili and cilantro seasoned chicken with a side of brown rice and green beans.

We had this Costco salmon for Valentine's Day and it's the BEST! I only use one of the butters  to make it a little healthier and it's still really delicious.

Subway for our picnic last week: I had a subway club with baked sour cream and cheddar chips.

 Sweet potatoes are the best with coconut oil and cinnamon!

 These are really great for nights I don't feel like cooking! Made with organic beans and rice they are perfect with a side of guacamole and light sour cream.

 Salmon for dinner again with steamed broccoli and Seeds of Change quinoa and brown rice.

Some organic snack options: YumEarth organic fruit snacks, organic raisins and Annie's animal cookies are all tasty, healthy options for little ones (or yourself!).

 Always in heavy rotation at our house is these homemade Chipotle bowls. Brown rice, black beans, corn, taco seasoned chicken, salsa, sour cream and extra guac please!

With any healthy eating though, I definitely splurge on the weekends! A good movie with pizza and wine is always deserved. You can only eat so healthy before it gets boring and indulging once in awhile makes it way easier to stay on track. Plus, I ALWAYS have to have something sweet after dinner...
 

What's been in your kitchen/pantry lately? Hope you guys are having a great week!
