Meal Plan - February Begins!

Weekly Meal Plan   I'm back again with the weekly meal plan! This week is the first week of February can we even believe it? I wonder if anyone is getting married on 2.2.22...

Eat to Live...Eventually

Eat to Live...Eventually Recently I have been very in to reading about nutrition. I've been gaining a lot of weight, as one does during a pregnancy, and I told my mom that after I gave birth to my baby girl, I wanted to do a boot camp where I would be super careful about what I ate and I would workout everyday. However, right after I said that, I realized that it would actually benefit my baby if I were more careful about what I ate now instead of waiting for her to be born. So, I got to work doing research on why sugar and processed foods were so bad for you, so as to give myself motivation to eat healthier....
