Feeding your family can be a great stressor in your life, especially if you work full time outside the home, or if your kids are in lots of activities, or for many other reasons in our busy lives.
Planning your meals and shopping ahead of time is the very best way to handle feeding your family, and should help to reduce the stress around the question “Mom, what’s for dinner?”
The reality is, however, that even if you DO plan your meals, there will come a day, or days, when things don’t go as planned. Maybe you get sick, or [...]
Sometimes we long for an adventurous life. We want to throw caution to the wind and go with the flow. And in some occasions that may be a good thing, but for the most part, routines and habits can be a good thing. Having the important daily things on autopilot, if you will, gives you more time and more brain power for doing all those other exciting things, even if it is just playing Legos with your kids or taking a walk in the park.
10 things you should do every day*
1. Drink enough water. And be sure [...]
You know how there are some people who just seem to have it all together?
Their houses are always neat and put together. Their cars are organized with bins in the trunk.

One of the most stresseful areas of a mom’s day is figuring out what to feed her family for dinner. Sure there is always McDonald’s or Little Ceasar’s or even boxed macaroni-n-cheese. But those things can get old quick, plus they are expensive when you consider the actual nutrition you are getting from them.
I love to help moms in this area when I can. I have a Pinterest board Easy Meals for Busy Folks. I even have a post 10 easy meals for busy nights. So when I came across this cookbook by Tiffany King, I knew it [...]
I know that there are tons of resources out there for meal planning. For planning a month’s worth of meals to fix in one day. To have 7 meals on hand for cooking at anytime.
While these are great ideas, for many young moms, or just women who didn’t get the training when they were younger, the thought of meal planning is scary and overwhelming.
In reality, even if you CAN cook decently, there are an overwhelming number of choices of WHAT you can cook, and then you actually have to have the ingredients on hand to do so, or [...]
Most of us only have to look at our own waistline or hips to know that there is an epidemic of obesity in America, and much of the developed world. Yet we have at our disposal all the diet foods and reduced calorie foods we can imagine. There has also been a boom in the production and sales of 100 calorie snack packages of foods.
There are a few problems with these foods.
They are expensive per serving. They tend to be highly processed. If they are a low-fat refined wheat product, such as most of the ones in the [...]
