Bulked Up Marinara {Crockpot Recipe}

I debated on what to call this recipe… “Crockpot Dump Sauce” just didn’t sound appealing, ‘ya know?! (Even though that is literally all I did!)   People ask me all the time how I go about meal prepping. I get that the idea is completely overwhelming if you’ve never done it before. You can be prepared…

I did not expect this meal to turn out so amazing. Bonus…it took almost no time to put together! I recently stumbled across Hope Foods Hummus at my local Publix, and couldn’t pass up trying a few of the flavors when I saw them. Kale Pesto and Thai Coconut Curry. Both were excellent. I love…

Easy PB2 Cheesecakes (High Protein + Low Calorie)

Holiday treats can be difficult to resist. Don’t get me wrong, I am an advocate of an occasional planned indulgence. The holidays are a time when favorite family recipes make it worth the splurge or two. But between family, work, and friends, the Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s meals add up. You can easily get…
