Recently I’ve been so into looking at food blogs and instagrams to find lots of inspiration for recipes to try. I love finding new meal and snack ideas to add to my regular rotation. I eat a lot of the same meals because I love them and know I’m going to enjoy them, but I definitely want to branch out with my meal options and try new combos!
Recently I’ve been really into oatmeal as a quick before-school breakfast. I really want to take pics and share my usual oatmeal recipe, so hopefully soon that post will be up! I’ve always made the same type of oatmeal every morning, so I want to branch out and try some new recipes! I’ve never tried overnight oats but I always see recipes pop up on my pinterest that I’ve been meaning to attempt. Here’s a few of my top recipes I want to try!
Even though it’s technically fall, here in Mississippi it doesn’t always feel like it. Sure, there are some days where it’s chilly and I end up grabbing a sweater, but other times it doesn’t feel much different from summer. I always love making a steaming mug of hot cocoa and warming up with it on a chilly day, but with this hotter weather, there’s no point! That’s why I’ve been loving frozen hot chocolate- you still get the delicious hot cocoa taste, but with the consistency of a milkshake! Today Valerie from Confetti and Tassels and I are sharing our favorite fall drinks, so be sure to check out her post after you’ve read mine! Over on her blog, she made a delicious pumpkin pie frappe, which sounds amazing! Now, on to the recipe:
Hello everyone! Today’s post is about one of my new finds: lemon water. Of course I’ve heard of it before, but I never really drank it until just recently. I really want to make a habit of drinking it every morning to start my day. I’ve heard that it’s really beneficial and has so many rejuvenating qualities! One of my main things I want to start doing is having a cup of lemon water by my bed or in my bathroom. That way, when I wake up in the morning, I can go ahead and start my day with a fresh cup of it! I also have found some fun ways to drink it throughout the day, even when I’m at school and am not at the place I can go cut up a lemon ;). Keep reading for more tips!
I always bring my lunch to school, but there are some mornings I have absolutely no idea what to bring and I’m rushing so I end up throwing some random, unhealthy things into my lunchbox. This year I want to go ahead and have a bunch of options in mind so that I can already have an idea of what I can take for lunch each day! I’m going to try to be healthier this year and not turn to the junk food options when I’m hungry. This post is about healthy lunch options for back to school!
Hello everyone! I’m so sorry that I haven’t been posting as much anymore, since I’m out for summer vacation I haven’t been able to sit down and write! Recently, I’ve been really loving avocados and I’ve been coming up with some great recipes incorporating them. Avocados are really healthy for you and they provide so many health benefits for you body and skin. A few of my favorite ways to use them: crush into guacamole with multigrain chips, slice like apple slices and eat plain, or put it on toast! Today’s post is about a really easy and delicious way to make avocado toast!

Hello everyone! Hope you’re having a happy hump day. We’re halfway through the school week! Yesterday I decided to make some cupcakes for my friend’s birthday. But I didn’t want to make a whole batch of 24 cupcakes, just one or two of them. So I tried out this recipe for single serving cupcakes. I had planned to follow the recipe and make two regular sized cupcakes, but something came up. I couldn’t use the regular muffin pan like I had planned. I should have checked before I made up the batter, but I already had everything ready to cook. So instead I found our mini muffin pan and decided to use that. And they actually turned out great! The batter makes about 5 or 6 mini cupcakes, and they turned out great!
I’ve found out recently that I actually do like certain types of coconut. I don’t like it on cakes or shredded, but toasted coconut is so so good! The best brand to buy is Dang. I think it tastes amazing. This snack is healthy and coconut is beneficial for you, but it also tastes surprisingly good! I think it’s also not too messy and you can carry around the little package of toasted coconut in your lunchbox or purse or whenever you’re on the go. You can buy already toasted-coconut, but you can also make your own! There are so many recipes and ways to make this easy snack. I can’t wait to try making it on my own!
What is your favorite easy snack? Have you ever tried toasted coconut? Let me know below!
Sometimes in the morning I get so rushed and I don’t have enough time to make a nice fancy breakfast. Even eggs take too much time if I’m in a big rush. Something I’ve recently found to be a quick and easy breakfast meal is a breakfast mug cake. It’s really simple, just mix your ingredients and pop it in the microwave for a couple of minutes. I’ve seen a lot of different recipes for mug cakes, but I’ve only tried the blueberry kind. I found this recipe from Pinterest and have been using it ever since!
Drinking more water was one of my New Year’s Resolutions, and so far I’ve been doing well keeping up with it. I almost always drink my whole water bottle and sometimes fill it up and drink a second bottle. It can get a little bland though, because water alone doesn’t have any flavor or taste to it! I started adding some lemon slices to my ice water some mornings to add some taste. After doing that for a bit, I started thinking of some other great combinations that would taste well with ice water. There are so many different fruits that would make your water taste even better. Another great thing about this is that because it’s only fruit and water, it’s healthy and there are so many health benefits and it can serve as a detox to flush out unwanted fluids in the body.
Eating snacks throughout the day is a habit. I usually have lunch at around 11:30 at school, and get hungry later. That means I want a bite to eat before soccer practice later in the afternoon. The thing is, I can’t be eating any unhealthy snacks right before I go out to practice for two hours! Some good options are fruits and other foods that provide protein, since I would be about to go out and run around. I made a list of some delicious and easy snacks for when you’re hungry and on the go.
