Zucchini Noodles are so delicious and so healthy, and they also make a great gluten free and wheat free recipe. I am such a huge fan of “zoodles”, I really can’t get enough of them. When you start adding in a few additional ingredients like pesto and give them a little zing, you won’t be able to get enough of them! I love this healthy zucchini noodles with pesto recipe, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Largely one of the biggest mistakes I made when I was trying to eat healthier and lose weight is that I would skip breakfast. I was under the mind set that if I wanted to lose weight, I needed to eat fewer calories and skip meals to do it. Not only is that a bad mindset to start off with, but is also completely wrong and unhealthy. Breakfast is very important, but not just any breakfast. These healthy high protein breakfast recipes will have you feeling better and staying full even longer.

One of the hardest things for me to do is grab a healthy breakfast and go. At one time I was notorious for just skipping breakfast altogether and waiting for lunch. Sound familiar? When I realized that skipping the best meal of the day was completely crazy, I started researching what those good healthy options were. When those mornings allow me time, I grab one of my favorite healthy eats, this Avocado Egg Toast. Pair it with and 8oz. glass of milk or a small container of yogurt and you should be close to hitting your protein goal for the morning.
With Summer in full swing, it can be a challenge to keep the kids and family snacking healthy. The heat is scorching hot and the popsicles and ice cream sandwiches are flowing.

Make those healthy summer snacks enticing so they will gobble them up!

One of the biggest ways to start clean eating is by adding more water to your diet. If you are accustomed to drinking sodas and coffee all day long, drinking water is probably not high on your list.

Start each day with a grateful heart. I am so in love with this beautiful quote. This past year has been one of the hardest, toughest years of my entire life. I have honestly never felt so lost, so inadequate, so unsure of myself as I have in the last year. There are times when I honestly feel lost, but I have to always remember to give my burdens over to God and realize that I am not in control of anything. I must be grateful for what I have and for what I will or won’t have in the future. It spoke to me so much, that I had to re-create it and share it as a free printable for you as well.

Good morning, PinkWhen readers! Justine from Cooking and Beer here to get all summery on you. If there’s one thing I go crazy for once the weather starts to warm up, it’s fresh veggies. I am kind of a garden nut, and while we don’t have the perfect climate for growing some of my favorites, I do the best that I can. Snap peas and green beans are two veggies that I ALWAYS grow. Obviously, these two haven’t even begun to sprout yet, but it still doesn’t mean I haven’t been stocking up at the market!
