Steak & Asparagus Wraps with Mustard Balsamic Reduction

I love it when a recipe turns out way better than you planned.  I also love it when a recipe looks pretty and pictures are really simple.  That doesn’t always happen with food (especially anything made in a crockpot) and it makes my life easier when food is pretty.

As you know, I am all about simple things in this season of my life.  Traveling, working outside of the home, training to be a nutrition coach, and trying to spend SOME quality time with my husband all demand my time and attention.  Creating elaborate meals is not at the top of my list. Steak & Asparagus Wraps | Life Healthfully Lived Continue reading

Herb & Garlic Chicken Thighs


Even though I publicly professed my approval of chicken boobs a while back, I will never let go of my love of chicken thighs.  They are delicious, pretty cheap, and no matter how you cook them, they stay nice and juicy.

My usual plan of attack when it comes to chicken thighs?  Make them in the Instant Pot and just change up the flavors I add to keep things simple but interesting/tasty.  Which if you follow me on Instagram, you’ve seen the endless parade of shredded chicken bowls.

Sorry, I’m not sorry.  Herb & Garlic Chicken Thighs | Life Healthfully Lived Continue reading

Happy Mother’s Day

If you’re a mom, Happy Mother’s Day.

If you’re about to be a mom, Happy Mother’s Day.

If you aren’t yet a mom but want to be, Happy Mother’s Day.

If your mom isn’t here but you wish she were, Happy Mother’s Day.

If you’re not sure whether being a mom is for you, Happy Mother’s Day.

If you never had a biological mom in your life but someone who acted like a mom, Happy Mother’s Day.

If you feel a LOT of complicated emotions on this day and don’t know what to do, Happy Mother’s Day.

It’s a happy day, a rough day, a sad day, an exciting day, a fun day, a painful day, and a million other emotions.  So no matter where you are on the “mom” spectrum or how you celebrate, I hope you found peace and happiness in your time yesterday.

And to my mom, I am who I am because of your love, guidance, laughter, rules, and example.  I can’t imagine a better mom for me and I’m so glad I get to call you mine.

Happy Mother’s Day.
