Feeling really bad this morning. Hungry but don’t want to eat. Determined though since I’m finally bumping my metabolism out of starvation mode. I went in the kitchen with the intent of using organic roasted chicken bouillon to make broth and add some protein powder. I left with this. Whey protein and Just Gelatin (added and mixed to cool water then added to hot broth), two handfuls of fresh baby spinach, left over sliced turkey sausage, and left over protein veggies and brown rice mix. You’re welcome. #losetheweight #iquitsugar #trimhealthymama #trimhealthymamacookbook #thm #thmemeal #soup #ihaveafever #fever #sick from Instagram: http://ift.tt/2jOzZXs

Attempting a THM (E) dinner. Big bed of spinach, serving spoon full of protein brown rice and veggie mix, turkey sausage browned in a skillet alone. No extra oils. Not extra fats. No sugar simply ranch dressing. How did I do? #thm #trimhealthymama #losetheweight #iquitsugar #thmemeal #spinach #turkeysausage #edamame #brownrice from Instagram: http://ift.tt/2hgT5ox

Meat Loaf, he says, again, he says… {Recipe}

Once upon a time, I was flipping through my Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook and stumbled upon a recipe for meat loaf. Not only is it one recipe, but on the facing page there is another ten varieties to change it up a little with the glaze. This has become an absolute favorite of the Enginerd’s for me me to cook. I know that when he shows up with fresh veggies and two pounds of ground meat he’s asking for meat loaf. The thing that is so friendly about this recipe is that you can truly tweak it to what is available. Two pounds of ground meat. Want lean? Use turkey. Want excitement? Mix it! Some turkey with some beef or some pork with some beef. Want standard? Use ground beef. I will tell you that I prefer not along the lines of the 95/5 variety. As with meat loaf. . .

Allergies are not my friend.

Sinuses hurt! Head cold nightmare after a week plus of sick kids. Including a croupy toddler. This is my husbands made up remedy. It helps. But oh how I wish this would go away! #sick #ill #illness #mamasrecipe #mamaissick #sinus #sinusinfection #sinusitis from Instagram: http://ift.tt/1TbraMO

GrubMarket: Farm Fresh to Door Delight! {Online Grocery Review}

GrubMarket #flyby review from @CherryBlossomMJ

I’m a stay-at-home homeschooling mama of three littles and I have a confession to make. I detest going to the grocery store. Going to the store fills me with anxiety. Whether it’s the price checking, the squealing offspring, the germs that I know are getting eaten off random surfaces, or many other things… it is not something I enjoy. Now wouldn’t it be a wonderful solution if I could do that shopping online and get about a 40-50% savings on fresh food?!

Oh!!! You can!

Keep on reading for a neat opportunity dear reader… coupons, giveaways… mmm…

Eat Your Math Homework: Recipes for Hungry Minds by Ann McCallum {Review}

  We are still in the earliest years of math education in our homeschool and I want to make sure that math remains a favored subject and not a dreaded one. Thus when I heard about Ann McCallum’s Eat Your Math Homework I was intrigued and excited about the possibility of adding such a book to our homeschool set up. We are enjoying living books with a math theme and I think an activity book for math will definitely excite my little people. Especially a recipe book will make my six-year-old second grader excited as she is just starting to really be able to help out in the kitchen. For the purposes of this review I received an autographed paperback copy of the book. It is my understanding that Ann McCallum Books ~ (http://AnnMcCallumBooks.com/) doesn’t just stop with math, but also has Eat Your _____ Homework books for History and Science as. . .
