Another week, another group of delicious, nutritious recipes to make your life just a bit easier!
I don’t know about you guys, but I sure did enjoy my holiday weekend last week. We went to the beach with friends and to our pool club with friends (we had NO BASEBALL for 3 whole days!) and it was amazing. But what does amazing actually mean? Lots of food and drinks. I don’t regret it one bit. I had a great weekend. But it’s hard to get back on track. Am I right?
I never stopped my running and bar method classes, I just need to be more conscious of what I am eating. I just feel better when I eat healthier. Bottom line.
I will never give up my wine and treats. Ever.
Most of you know I am all about moderation. That’s such a broad word though, what does it really mean? I focus on fueling my body with wholesome, nutritious foods as much as possible(about 80% of the time) and I still enjoy my not-so-healthy indulgences (for me that’s a couple glasses of wine on the weekend and some type of dessert). I don’t want to be that boring person at the party eating carrot sticks. I want to be the girl enjoying herself. I don’t believe in deprivation.
This week I think I am going to start with the flatbread for me and my husband and the kabobs for my kids. I am so excited. Now allow me to introduce you to this week’s beauties…
Open Faced Eggplant Parmesan Sandwiches from greens & chocolate.

Pesto and asparagus on flatbread? That has my name all over it!
Let’s not forget my beloved grocery list. This is such a lifesaver.
So tell me, was are you making first? Have a great week!
