Chicken Enchiladas

For some reason enchiladas is a recipe that I avoided making because in my mind they seemed really complicated. I know that sounds stupid, but I have honestly never made them before until this recipe. I was looking for an inexpensive way to meal prep. I knew that I would already be making shredded chicken for dinner on Monday, so I figured I could easily make extra chicken for my meal prep. Then after some thought, I decided to give enchiladas a try! So here is my easy meal prep chicken enchiladas recipe! This is a wonderful budget friendly meal that is easy to makeRead More →

I’ve talked to a lot of people who think that eating healthy or following a “diet” or tracking macros is only possible when you have a lot of money.

health new years resolutions

It is almost 2019, and you’ve probably started to think about your New Year’s Resolutions. Am I right? Most people set themselves up for failure by committing to huge New Year’s resolutions that are almost impossible to achieve in a year. For example, “I’m going to workout everyday”, or “I’m going to completely eliminate sugar, dairy, and gluten”, or “I’m going eat zero carbs”. While these might sound like great health-conscious goals, you need to stop and think about how huge of a life change this would be. So instead, this year I want you to focus on setting achievable resolutions. Here’s an example of fourRead More →
