Chili for a Crowd

How do you Feed a Crowd??

I can’t believe our first ever business retreat was this past weekend (and a huge success!!!)

This was totally on our dream board for about a year –

a) to own a house that could host such an event and

b) actually have people come, haha!

Our main goal was to build stronger connections with each other and encourage each other to develop their skills to build their dream job.


With our first retreat under our belts, I’m already looking forward to the next one!! When planning an overnight retreat, of course my first question is… what are we going to eat?? Haha!  It’s starting to get chilly here in North West Arkansas, so my first thoughts went to a great chili!

High Protein Brownies

I don’t know about you… but I have a weakness for brownies.

I mean… come on.

Warm, melt-y Chocolate… Who wouldn’t want to eat that!?!

With fall approaching, I really wanted to get in the kitchen and make some brownies for the whole family to enjoy. Because I want my girls to learn some healthy recipes and tips, I thought this would be a great recipe to try!

After a morning playing at the Children’s Museum, we could all go for a great snack. I loved that this was easy (not many ingredients) and they girls loved helping me mix in everything with my stand mixer.

How we Saved 60% on our Health Insurance

Health Insurance is one of those things that I never really gave much thought to. For our entire marriage Adam had worked for large fortune 500 Type companies and we had comparatively affordable Group Insurance Plans.

When we started our own independent business, it was just a side thing and we still weren’t thinking about insurance.

Then our home business was generating more monthly income than Adam’s day job, we realized that going independent meant we needed to find our own health insurance!

20 Healthy Halloween Treats

Growing up, my family never really celebrated a traditional “Halloween.” We lived out in the country, so we never had trick-o-treaters come by for treats. But what we did do was a church Fall Festival with costumes and candy. Of course, as a kid – that sounded pretty awesome!!

Now as a mom, I have two girls who LOVE dressing up and of course they love candy too… but I’m a healthy mom – so I always feel guilty giving my kids candy. So I thought, what are some healthy ways to have fun this Halloween and make sure that sugar isn’t the main show.

Foods That Cleanse

5 Tips to Lose Belly Fat

All of us carry our weight differently.

I know that for me, I tend to gain weight below my waist first… but then slowly my waistline starts expanding too.

Before kids, I had a smaller waist… and when I was at the end of my first pregnancy at that whale-ish stage, haha, I remember thinking… “Will I ever have a waist again!?!”

Because I developed diastasis recti with my first pregnancy (a gap between the abdomen muscles), I was limited to the exercises I could do to flatten my stomach. Then, with my second pregnancy my diastsis got worse… ouch!

6 Ways Matcha Green Tea can help you

Have you heard of Matcha Green Tea?

Matcha Green Tea has grown in popularity over the past few years. Matcha Green Tea is pretty unique because it is only grown in Japan (green tea is grown outside of Japan as well). It is a traditional tea that was consumed by Monks to improve mental clarity. One Cup of Matcha Green Tea has 10 times the nutritional value of one cup of regular green tea.

Why should you Drink Matcha Green Tea?

Natural Detox

Because Matcha tea is high in chlorophyll, it is a great way to detox naturally. Natural detox is a great way to keep our liver healthy and working properly. You should always try to avoid toxins in our environment and foods, but you just can’t avoid everything. I really like a gentle daily detox to help.
