A Month of Whole30 Dinner Recipes Your Whole Family Will Love!

If you're doing a Whole30 chances are your whole family isn't doing it with you. In the past I've found that this can be a bit overwhelming when it comes to food prep. Making every meal completely separate is just a lot to do. One solution I have found is to make family-friendly Whole30 dinner recipes. That way, at least for one meal, I was just making one meal that everyone would eat. 

I thought I'd share some of the great Whole 30 dinner recipes I've found from my favorite bloggers (and my own recipes are in there too!). 30 Whole30 dinner recipes to be exact! This list should help you cruise through an entire month of Whole30 with great family friendly dinners.

I'm Going Streaking on Snapchat

I suppose it's that time of year again. The time of year we welcome in the shiny New Year filled with hopes and dreams for a fresh start. We sit down and make lists. Resolutions. Things we're going to do different in the coming year. 

We make our New Year's Resolutions.
Unfortunately, let's be real friends, we don't tend to follow through with these New Years Resolutions.
I'm all for goals, but we all know that the majority of people promptly break their New Year resolutions within 2 weeks or so. 

But not us dear reader friends. Not this year! 
No, we'll go ahead and make a goals list. I think those are fabulous for focus. For direction. For setting our intentions. I make them all year round. But then, we won't stop there. Let's choose not to be in that percentage that gives up. Let's take those goals and turn them into actions. Actions repeated. Then repeated again. On and on and on. For 66 days.
Let's try a STREAK!

Best Last-Minute Gifts

When I first met my husband he did ALL of his Christmas shopping last minute. I mean, wandering around the mall at 6 PM on Christmas Eve last minute. It drove little-miss-budget-plan-ahead here nuts. Well, this year I find myself doing a little last-minute shopping. Ah well, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em!

If you've waited until the last minute and are feeling a bit of the stress this time of year can bring (and your blood type may or may not currently be coffee like mine) I'm here to help! Here's my list of BEST last-minute gifts for your wife (or mom, sister, BFF, aunt, cousin, neighbor's grandma's step-daughter)...

Let's Have Coffee and Chat...

The end of 2016 has been a crazy blur for me. It's been work, work, freak out a little, work harder, repeat. I thought I'd just take a moment to grab a cup of coffee and chat. I always see bloggers do coffee date posts and think, "What a fun idea! I should do that." Then never do. So, if we were having coffee together...

I would probably promptly blurt out that I'm a little scared (I'm good like that). Finances have begun to look bleak since hubby's job loss. Don't get me wrong, I have total faith. I KNOW we will be fine. I KNOW good things are coming. I KNOW a door is just itching to open for me. But every once in a while I feel a little fear. I look at the bank account and feel that grip. That constricting in the pit of my stomach. A tiny little doubt tries to whisper in my ear. I'm human.

Of course then you'd hug me and agree that there is a door just itching to open for me and we'd smile together hopefully...



Then I'd tell you I'm…

Staying Active With Our Pets in Winter #HealthierTogether

Winter can be a really tough time to remain active. As the temps drop down and the snow piles up I find myself struggling just to get my daily steps in. I notice the struggle not only in myself, but in my entire family and even in our pets. Left to our own devices we would all be less active in winter. I find it's even more important to be intentional about our activity levels during the winter. To be diligent about seeking activity out. To get creative.

KETO Sweet Cinnamon Pancakes

I'm completely obsessed with keto pancakes lately. Oh, you've caught on to that? Well, these Sweet Cinnamon Low Carb Pancakes are a seriously tasty addition. They're a quick and super easy breakfast option.  Whether you're getting bored on your egg fast or just a low carb or keto style eater these are for you! With only 4 grams of carbs for the ENTIRE RECIPE, they'll fit nicely into your plan.

This recipe makes 3 or 4 decent sized pancakes and comes in at 340 calories according to my tracking in My Fitness Pal. I generally eat the whole thing and double the batch if hubby wants some too. It easily doubles or triples or quadruples...to feed however many you'd like. I love to make a giant batch on Sunday and have them ready for the week. Just reheat in the microwave and go.

A mixing bowl (I like to use a large glass measuring cup to easily pour the batter in the skillet), a hand mixermeasuring spoons

My ONE WORD for 2017

I love the one word concept. Boiling all of our goals, our intentions, our hopes, our visions for the next year down to one single word. A mantra condensed. Concentrated. Focused. Until we arrive at one word.

As 2016 comes to a close, I've been looking back over the year. Looking at what worked and what didn't. Looking at successes and failures. Looking at the lessons learned.

I've also been looking forward to 2017. Pondering goals. Considering options. Setting intentions.

If we're Facebook friends you heard the news that my husband lost his job recently. This changes the landscape of our lives quite a bit. It shifts my part-time blogging back to more of a full-time endeavor again. It focuses me on my fiction writing more. It brings with it endless options and opportunities. For myself, my husband, and our family. It may seem like a negative event, but it's actually very exciting.

With that I want to be sure to go into 2017 with intention. Eyes wide open. Focused. Taki…
