Menu For The Month Of January + What This New Year Brings

Hey there folks,

I have new plans for this blog.

One of the things I am going to be doing is posting my monthly menue. I hope this will maybe help some out with that question we all hate

” What’s for supper?” which leads to a ” what do you want.” and ends with a ” I don’t know.”

You know what I’m talking about. We have all had this happen to us. and it is annoying.

Anyhow, Here is my menu ^ up there. It isn’t written on anything fancy and I hope to change that for you soon. For now, there it from scratch.

Recipes come from

Fixate Cook Book

Healthy Cooking For Your Kids

Youtuber Brianna K

And Pinterest

The unlabeled ones are going to be just your basic thrown together recipes that I dont have written down.

Now, for the explination of whats to come.

We know I’m unorganized as all get out, and that is something I am working on this year. My word is Productivity.

I am going to bring you guys on my journey as a mother, a student, and a outdoor enthusiast.

Noticed I said student?

Yes, I am working on my certifications in personal training and nutrition in hopes to be adding ” Health Coach” to my resume in August.

Add the avocado, tomato, onion, and cilantro to a large mixing bowl. Add fresh lime juice and a pinch of salt and pepper. Gently stir with a spoon until fully combines.

Serve immediately or tightly cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 2 days. The lime will keep the avocado from browning.
