Hey friends! I can’t believe how cold it is already getting and it is only November! It feel like it should be January with these frigid temps and inches of snow on the ground. With the cold that also means sickness, ugh! My family and…
Hey friends! Happy Snacktastic Tuesday! Okay, that’s a little obnoxious, but seriously this is the easiest and tastiest green smoothie with only 4 ingredients! 🙌🏼🤗 This makes a filling snack or the perfect pair to any meal. I made this last night for our Monday…
Hey friends! Are you feeling the pressure that December is flying by and Christmas will be here in the blink of an eye? Ahhh!
The kids are so excited and counting down the last two weeks of school. I can’t believe how short this holiday season feels, it kinda makes me a little sad. I always think to myself, this is the only year my kids will be 7, 9 and 12 for Christmas and want to savor the memories. I keep telling myself this to enjoy this time and ditch the stress.
Anyway, as time is getting crunched, I feel I need to skip my workout in order to get more done during the day. But here’s a great little cardio plus strength workout that can be done in no time.
Feel free to add weights to squats and walking lunges. Arm exercises: bicep curls and chest press will need to have light to medium weights.
Enjoy this combo and feel free to adjust rounds. I hope you have a wonderful Monday!
Hey friends! Tuesdays I generally like to feature a simple snack but since it is a holiday week, here’s a snack pre/post your holiday meal. We are really starting to get ready for holidays here and can’t wait for the season! Who’s with me?!
So…here it is…a super-simple dip that is actually pretty packed with some goodies (super foods!), just saying… I’m all for enjoying all kinds of foods during the holidays but when they are good-for-you AND taste amazing, that’s a pure holiday bonus! 🙌
This seasoning package is from Simply Organic seasonings. Simply Organic Spinach Dip Mix. Sometimes it’s hard to find, but thinking you could sub a ranch dressing seaoning package. I have found it at Hy-Vee HealthMarket and Whole Foods.
Crock-Pot Spinach Artichoke Dip
12oz spinach (I used frozen, thaw and ring out water)
1 can (13.75oz) artichokes, drained
8oz light cream cheese
1 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
1 cup mozzarella & parmesan blend, shredded
1 pkg spinach seasoning
1/2 cup milk
Finely chop spinach and artichokes (I placed both ingredients in a food processor). Place all ingredients in a crock-pot and stir together. Heat on LOW for two hours. Serve with crackers, pretzel thins or veggies!
This dip was a hit at my class last week! I’ve been eating it for lunch this past week, and I’m totally counting it as a veggie in my lunch. 🤗
Enjoy friends! XOXO DD
This was a doozy friends, whew! But honestly I felt great after three rounds. I wrote a version of this HIIT workout but it just didn’t flow, with a few tweaks, here she is! I really love this one! 🤗 I found a 45 sec…
