Fall Sausage Bowl

Fall Sausage Bowl

My husband and I have had this dish probably five times this month already. It is THAT good. And easy!! Honestly, it doesn’t take much time at all.

Seasoned Chicken Meal Prep

Seasoned Chicken Meal Prep

This might look like breaded chicken tenders, but don’t be fooled! It’s an awesome combo of spices that makes any protein delectable.

My husband is not a fan of pork (or really chicken, for that matter) but when I use this combo of spices, or a similar variation, he is excited for dinner! Meal prep has really been a game changer for me when it comes to weight loss. I’m a teacher, so having lunch ready to grab and go really saves me time in the morning! I’m way less likely to eat unhealthy junk when I meal prep :)
