It’s been a little over a month since I packed my bags and moved to Louisiana’s capital city. While I’m getting into the groove at my new job and starting a new daily routine, I’ve had some time on the weekends to explore!

My go-to nourishing beauty bowl

Ever have those days where you feel really out of balance? Lately, I’ve had a lot of those. It might be that it’s a busier season in my life, or it could be that I’m not prioritizing the way I should. But I have a fix! It’s a natural fix that can motivate you to bounce back from a hectic week when you feel out of sorts. Beauty bowls are my go-to when I feel sluggish, unmotivated and just down-right in the dumps.

Probably the best part about beauty bowls is that the ingredient combinations are bountiful. Whether you toss in a whole bunch of greens or some paprika roasted red potatoes, you’re still nourishing your body for optimal beauty. I’m not a vegan, but I sure do love plant-based meals and the natural benefits that come with them.

Healthy buffalo chicken naan 'pizza'

After a stressful week, the last thing I want to do is cook a meal. But I feel like making a pizza is put into its own category, and the options are endless when I’m given a piece of naan or pizza crust. Truth be told, I randomly came up with this recipe last week when I was battling a nasty head cold. Minimal effort required.

And the other bonus to this meal? It’s healthy and can erase those cravings for something fried and greasy.

For some reason, the internet world has a crazy fascination with what people eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I mean, I’m guilty of it, and have probably spent hours watching “What I eat in A Day” videos on YouTube. But it makes sense! I love seeing what others around the world are eating and it gives me good ideas for future meals.

As the air gets cooler, my tastebuds naturally crave heartier foods. But that doesn’t mean it has to be unhealthy! So here is what I typically eat in a day during the fall/winter months.

How to set up a weekly meal plan (and stick to it!)

How to set up a meal plan

Meal planning and prepping is all the rage lately, and I’m completely on board! I can’t get on social media without seeing a meal prep video or someone batch-cooking grains and vegetables. It all looks delicious and pretty inspiring, but is it really doable for your lifestyle? My friends, I certainly think so!

The idea of planning meals every week sounds downright ideal. A kale Mediterranean salad? How about some baked salmon and asparagus? Sounds easy enough, but the key to meal planning is staying consistent from week to week and having a set strategy, even when some weeks are busier than others.
