Last week, a friend of mine posted a picture of some new products she found at the grocery store. They were a part of the new riced cauliflower line from Green Giant! Intrigued, I bought one of the products to try–the riced cauliflower stuffing!
This healthy version of the Thanksgiving staple is packed with cauliflower, carrots, celery, cranberries, and tasty herbs and spices! Its super easy to cook (and by “cook” I mean pop the bag in the microwave for like, 5 minutes) and its done!
We had ours on the side of Keto chicken and asparagus! It was actually pretty good! I mean, I don’t think it will completely take the place of stuffing, but it was nice to have a healthier alternative!

As some of y’all know, I’m trying to up my protein intake so I can build more muscle. Not that I’m trying to be the female version of Arnold Schwarzenegger or anything, I just want my protein intake to be substantially more than my carbohydrate intake. (Because lower carb + more protein = more fat loss.)
Anywhoo, its been kind of a struggle to find protein-friendly snacks and treats that aren’t beef jerky or meatballs. The other day I was craving a chocolate shake and I just didn’t have the energy to make a Keto-friendly one, so I went to Walmart to see what I could find. Enter this:
I was a little nervous at first because I was afraid it would taste like a Slim Fast shake (of which I’m not a fan) but I was pleasantly surprised! This shake was sooooo good! The entire bottle was only 160 calories, 4 grams of fat, and 20 grams of protein! I haven’t tried any other flavors, but I seriously think I will because this one was so tasty!
Guys. Halloween is next week. NEXT. WEEK. Do you have your kid’s costume(s) yet? If you don’t–and you don’t want to pick through the piddly few that are left at Target or Walmart, I got you! I’ve looked all over the interwebs to find simple, quick DIY costumes you can make in a pinch!
This one is SUPER easy. Just dress your kiddo up in their Sunday best, tape some paper to them, spike their hair, and find a broken umbrella (we all have one). Bam!–instant weatherperson.
Again, this one is super easy! Most little boys have a super hero shirt of some sort; just put a button-up shirt over it and you’ve got yourself a pint-size superhero!
Not only is this one clever, but its crazy-simple! A small piece of posterboard and a paint brush! That’s all you need!
Basket of Laundry
I mean, might as well dress the kids up as laundry seeing as how we all pretty much live in a perpetual state of washing/drying/folding!
We all have spare bags laying around somewhere in our homes. Cut a hole in the bottom and this funny costume is DONE!

I’ve been trying to slim down before our big trip to Disney World this November and I gotta tell ya, its been ROUGH. I’m not one of those people that “forgets to eat” or when they’re stressed, stops eating. I’m the complete opposite. My day is basically distracting myself until its time to eat again and/or shotgunning hidden chocolate because my kids are driving me batty.
Because of this, I’ve been looking for healthy/healthier treats to help me feel like I’m indulging without completely derailing my day. When I was grocery shopping the other day I came across these:
These cups are filled with apples, oatmeal, and chia seeds! There are also other flavors including pear and maple and peach cinnamon spice. The box says you can enjoy them hot or cold, but I decided it would be nice to have a warm dessert! I popped it in the microwave for 45 seconds and voila!
The first bite I took wasn’t that great. In fact, I *almost* threw it away. But then I stirred it up and plopped a tablespoon of fat free whipped cream on top and it was AMAZING! Now, I will say that this isn’t the *healthiest* of treats–there’s quite a bit of sugar in it and there’s not a ton of protein. BUT, if you’d like to have this rather than a hot fudge sundae, its definitely the healthier of the two!

Praise tha Lort its Friday, y’all! Not only is it Friday, but its a crisp, cool Friday in FALL! Man, I am so excited that the weather is getting cooler and we’re gearing up for pumpkin spice everything and Halloween! What better way to get your ghouls in gear for the candy coma that is to come than with some geeky goodies!
No dishonor on you when you hit the Halloween party in this!
Personally, I’m not a fan of the “spooky” Halloween stuff. I like dressing up, eating candy, and seeing all the cute kids in their costumes. But the scary movies? I’ll pass. But for you cinephiles out there that love to be scared silly, I’ve got just the game for you!
As moms, we sacrifice a lot. We go without so our children can have and sometimes its hard to see the things we gain because we’re so focused on what we’ve lost. I saw a video the other day that really hit home and helped me examine my heart and priorities. Take a watch, Mommas, and remember that you’ve gained SO. VERY. MUCH.
