Clean Eating Tips for Beginners

As many of you know, my husband and I recently overhauled the ingredients in our kitchen. I went all in and threw away most processed and refined foods. Out with all the added sugar! We aim for fresh foods, organic meats and produce, less dairy, and the occasional complex carbs like whole grains. It has been wonderful! We have more energy, have both lost weight, and just feel better all around.

Before we started this lifestyle, I thought it would be difficult. I hate to cook and I don’t meal plan very well. I

The NEW MyMixx, My Savings app for Jewel Osco

A month ago we drastically changed our diets. We’re not “on a diet,” we’re changing our lifestyle habits. I threw away most junk food and sugary snacks. We’re eating as “clean” and whole as we can with lots of meats and proteins. My grocery shopping has completely changed, being mostly produce and meats, and it has also become more expensive. When I can find sales or coupons, it helps a lot!

That’s why I am loving the new MyMixx savings app I recently found for Jewel Osco stores. Our closest one is unfortunately

Nature’s Bakery: fig bar snacks

This post was created in partnership with Nature’s Bakery. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

I’ve never really made resolutions for the New Year. I’ve thought about things in a more general sense, like maybe this year we should try to be healthier, spend less time working, and more time with family. But I’ve never sat down and made a plan. I’ve never created specific goals or written down a way to meet them. THIS year is different.

My husband and I both declared that 2015 is the year of US. We have

Turtle Toffee Cheesecake recipe

What’s on your holiday dinner menu this year? We’re pretty traditional and don’t change it up too much year to year, but I like to try new variations. One year, instead of plain cranberries on the table, I made brie and sugared cranberry crackers. I’ve added chocolate to my pecan pie. I spiced up the “cheese and crackers” appetizer with spinach artichoke dip.

This season, I partnered with Save-A-Lot to try something new! My friend Tiffany shopped with the goal of keeping this UNDER $25—Save-A-Lot makes it easy, you could definitely shop there and
