Meal Prep: Week 6 of 2020

I’m not gonna lie, this week was one where I didn’t feel very motivated to do much food wise. I know those weeks comes and go, but sometimes I get very afraid that those weeks will last for a very long time. Does anyone else ever feel that way? This week for breakfast I decided…

Meal Prep: Week 5 of 2020

What a wild week of weather we’ve had out here in Denver, Colorado. It has snowed twice this week and yesterday we got 10 inches of snow at my house. It’s been crazy for this Las Vegas girl to drive through or deal with in general. Either way, it was pretty much a regular day…
