Hi friends! It’s been a while since I’ve shared a recipe on here. So, I wanted to change that STAT!
This coming Saturday is Chinese New Year. And you know that I’m all about celebrating ALL THE THINGS. Holidays are kinda my thing! We like to go all out. Big or small. Holiday or not. Typically we celebrate with one main thing…….
Bay and I wanted to put a fun + healthy spin on one of your very favorite Chinese dishes. Fried rice. If Bay could eat fried rice every day, she 100% would. Ha! Since it’s the new year and everyone, inducing myself, seem to be on the clean eating train. I am currently on week #2 of the Kaia Fit 30-day Jump-start program. Which is very clean eating.
My wheels started turning and I decided to whip up on of my favorite healthy rice dishes. Shrimp + Pineapple Fried Rice using Hinode Calrose Brown Rice. Grown in U.S.A. Non GMO. Gluten Free. Heart healthy.
You can find a variety of Hinode rice at Walmart + Nugget Market.
Before we get started on the recipe, I wanted to chat a little more about Chinese New Year.
The tree isn’t the only thing getting lit this year! #sorrynotsorry
HAPPY FRIDAY FRIENDS!!!
As I typed the title, I thought – what a random post! Truth is, I’ve got so much to share and so little time. So we’re tag teaming these posts with all the things. Food + outfits! Why not?
Let’s start with why I LOVE all black outfits……
Slimming AF | I think we’re all down with anything to look a little slimmer, right? Black makes any figure, shape and size – look longer and leaner. And it’s so sleek!
Easy AF | By far the easiest color to dress up or dress down. Black jeans with a t-shirt and sneakers by day. Swap out with a heel + blazer and you’re instantly dressed up! Having great basics like this in my closet are a MUST!
Accessorize AF | Black is basically a blank canvas. So anything goes. You can always keep it simple with jewelry. Or bust out all the bright + fun pieces and let the jewelry be the statement. Add a leopard belt. Or a bright scarf.
Classic AF | It’s one of the most classic colors in your closet. Black will NEVER go out of style! When you dress in classic colors + pieces you will instantly look + feel put together with little effort.
Happy Hump Day peeps! Tonight is our annual annual family pumpkin carving competition. Debating if I want to get tips…..or carve a pumpkin. Hummmm! Plus we’re celebrating my Dad’s birthday. I foresee lots of red wine. Mom’s Famous Chicken Tortilla Casserole (it’s a tradition) and laughing till we (almost) pee our pants. It’s just how we roll.
I haven’t shared a recipe in a bit, so I thought I better get one up today.
If you’re down with healthy + easy + flavorful + one pan meals….
Then I got you!
I made this Thai Turkey + Carrots dish last month. It was so good, I made it the other night. I was craving it. Then I realized I never shared the recipe with you guys.
Think turkey cooked in coconut milk + broth with and all the yummy spices. You get sweet + spicy + salty all in one.
This legit takes 15 minutes. It’s clean AF. Weight Watchers friendly. The only ingredients that have points value is the coconut milk and peanuts. Everything else is ZERO! I picked up all my ingredients at good ol Trader Joe’s. Except for the Franck hot sauce. Which you should already have in your fridge. Because that shit is bomb!
Before we get started, I have to take a moment to say Happy Birthday to my Mom, best friend, wine drinking partner, biggest fan and best Grammy. We love you to the moon and back x1,000 Can’t wait to celebrate with you tonight!!!
This weather has been giving me all the Fall feels. I’ve been wearing all my new sweaters + long sleeve tops. Decorating the house for the season. Buying anything + everything pumpkiny from Trader Joe’s. And pulling out some of my most fave recipes from the archives.
Some of them are so good and I almost forgot about them. I tend to try something New to make each week for the blog. I need to start busting out some of these oldies and throwing them into the rotation more often. Incase you’re new here. I’ve complied a few really, really good ones below for you!
Just another Magic Monday. Switching it up. Moday’s don’t have to be manic. Let’s make them magic. What do you think? After a full 7 hours of sleep last night (which I never, ever get) I did NOT wake up refreshed and ready for the day. But, instead of thinking about how shitty today could be. I’m turning it around and thinking of all the ways it can me magic. I know, sounds corny, but my mind + heart can make or break my day. So, this is working for me….so far!
Hope you all had a great weekend.
This past weekend was sprinkled with a healthy dose of family + friends + sunshine + relaxation. It was pretty damn good!
