Three of my favorite snack foods: chocolate, crackers, and fruits. I love pairing sweet and salty all into one bite or treat. I try not to keep too many chocolates around the house, because they don’t last long. However, I do keep chocolate wafers to use for treats and I always have plenty of fruit and cracker varieties.

More recently than before, I have been struggling with getting dinner on the table. I have had a hard time managing my time around the house and preparing for it. For that reason I am always in need of quick and easy meals that take less than thirty minutes and have few ingredients. Meals that allow me to use products I keep in on hand.

I know I say it often, but for me, cleaning isn’t all that bad. I enjoy organizing, keeping things put away, and managing my house so it looks it’s best. But then there are times when life happens. Those unexpected things that jump out at us and send our daily routines awry.

Leading a healthy lifestyle has increasingly became more and more important to me over the last year. After having three kids in less than three years, it took over 2 years for me to convince myself I have take time to focus on myself, not just the kids.
