Your Health Is Not An Expense

Nov 10, 2017

It's time for some real talk...

Amongst the Jazzy recipes showing up in your inbox, I wanted to take a minute to talk about a question I think we should ask ourselves:

What does "HEALTHY" really even mean?

To me, healthy means whatever YOU define it as. It doesn't mean that diet program you see on a FB Ad, it's not the cliche terms & fads floating around, it's not only what your neighbor is doing or the hot product on the HSN.

To me... "healthy" is living a lifestyle where you invest in...

Meatless Monday: Luxurious Herb Potatoes

Oct 17, 2017

I have to admit…I need more balance in my life. I have been eating out far too much, and have skipped the gym more often than I admit. But, don’t worry I love to give myself grace, so I won’t beat myself up about it. However, somethings need to change. Time to take adulting to a new level.

Time to say goodbye to an empty fridge, endless cheat meals, and silly “I’ll start tomorrow” excuses. 

The Your Dinner Is Planned Community inspires me to make a...

Meatless Monday: Not Your Basic Rice Bowl

Sep 29, 2017

I am not one to meal prep. I definitely have food prep envy though, that level of discipline is #goals. But, what makes things worse, is I am terrible at eating leftovers. It's not that I don't like leftovers, I do. I just like eating out more? Or maybe I like not having to dishes more? Either way. If I did meal prep, this Not Your Basic Rice Bowl would be on monthly ration. 

As with most of these posts. There are many different variations you could do with this, which is what...

Meatless Monday: One Pan Pasta

Sep 18, 2017

Is there anything better for a Saturday Date Night at home then Pasta? Especially after binge watching Netflix all day!?

It takes a lot to get me to cook on the weekends, and that is saying a lot because I love to get my hands dirty in the kitchen. But, I also LOVE going out to eat. Fine Dining is one of my favorite things to do. So, I try and get my husband to take me out to dinner as much as possible. However, this weekend, we found ourselves really craving a day glued to the...

Meatless Monday: Buffalo Flautas

Sep 11, 2017

Football Sunday is back!

I have to admit, it wasn't until I noticed my now husband was into fantasy football and the Philadelphia E-A-G-L-E-S Eagles  that I actually watched football. I didn't grow up in a football house, sports yes, football no. When I was a kid I barely knew what the Super Bowl was besides an excuse to pig out on treats.  

But, I have learned to love the Football, thanks to Josh patiently my answering questions all these years. One of the things I love most...

Meatless Monday: Taco Salad

Sep 04, 2017

Taco Salad was one of the first things I learned how to make. I'm talking summer school, Home Economics, summer before 3rd or 4th grade.

Important side note: in my opinion, Home Ec is one of the most valuable classes in school. It was also my personal favorite. Can you imagine if there was some sort of home ec class incorporated in every grade during your time in school. Imagine how much better us millennials would be at adulting. What if we had more practical skills in our back pocket...

Meatless Monday: Curry w/ all the things

Aug 28, 2017

September is approaching...which means fall is coming soon...what says fall more than people talking about pumpkin spice lattes (I am not a fan), scarves, boots, and CROCKPOTS. This week my mom and I created a vegan curry dish that is customizable and simple but fancy.

Here's a fun fact about me...my mom is from England! I love hearing all about her experiences growing up in another country. This week we reminisced on her early twenties and the months leading up to moving to...

Meatless Monday: BBQ Cauliflower Pizza

Aug 21, 2017

Not going to lie…Pizza was not the original plan for this blog post #realtalk. Earlier this week I made Pineapple Fried Rice, Samosa Potatoes, and Orange Cauliflower for a dinner party. However, I am far from perfect and may or may not have peeled off the corner of my pinky finger while preparing ginger for the fried rice . Needless to say, from that point on I was a hot mess in the kitchen with my finger taped up and my husband and friend helping me so that our dinner party could...

Meatless Monday: Perfect Peanut Summer Salad

Aug 14, 2017

My favorite thing about experimenting with plant-based/vegan recipes is the color. I heard that eating a rainbow of colors in your meals is the easiest way to make sure you are getting the nutrition you need. Don’t quote me on that, but we can agree that it is definitely a fun guideline to follow. 

I was never big on making salads, but that has quickly changed thanks to Your Dinner Is Planned. I love how there are different salad recipes inside the Membership, and even different...

Meatless Monday: Potato Tacos

Aug 07, 2017

I seriously love Mexican food. There was honestly a point in high school that it felt like I couldn’t go a day without indulging some type of Mexican delight.

…quesadillas

…tacos

…flautas

…salsa…on everything!

Tacos shouldn’t have to wait for Tuesday, am I right?!

This week’s recipe pays tribute to my childhood neighbor and high school ceramic teacher. He often made his famous potato tacos, and he would surprise us by bringing a batch over to...
