Egg MugMuffin with Spinach, Ham and Bacon

Every time I hear people say it takes too much time or money to eat healthier/lighter I cringe. Sure it CAN be but there are plenty of ways to make small changes to your diet that can be done on a budget and made just as fast as waiting in a drive-thru line.

Our Sweet Pork Chop Dinner Adventure!

I was planning on posting a salad I made for lunch yesterday, but last night’s dinner was such an adventure it totally trumped it.

Custardy Pumpkin Maple Smoothie

Custardy Pumpkin-Maple Smoothie

OK, hear me out — I know it’s not pumpkin season, but I just got back from a FABULOUS 5-day vacation in Vermont with The Husband. It was our 12th anniversary trip and we went completely kid-less. Can you say heaven?
