I may be a healthy living blogger who loves cooking, but I truly don’t have time to make a fancy dinner that keeps me in the kitchen for an hour or two every night. Nope. No way.
So, along my healthy living journey, I’ve found a few really healthy, really easy dinners that appear time and time again on our dinner table.

We parents are blessed with a special superpower; our Mom and Dad “guts”. It sounds like an old wive’s tale and probably some who aren’t yet parents will think it is just that, but us mamas and papas know that the parent intuition is a real and powerful thing. That unexplainable gut feeling that bubbles and nags and leads you strongly in a certain direction when it comes to making a choice that is in the best interest of your child.
And the Mom Gut should never be ignored.

We are a family who eats veggies and cooks at home, but we are also a family that occasionally goes out for ice cream sundaes. We are a family who fills our lives with movement and nature, but we also deeply value cuddling up together in front of a favorite movie. We are a kombucha-brewing and water-drinking family, but my husband and I will occasionally enjoy beer or a glass of wine when the mood strikes. We are a family of balance, rather than extremes. We don’t believe in “all or nothing” because we are in this lifestyle for a lifetime. We want our daughter learn balance instead of depravation. And we want to be able to live a life we can sustain, instead of trying to be perfect each and every day.

I don’t have a big house. Or a big yard. Or a big bank account. But I have the people I love most by my side, joy in my soul, and the memories I choose to fill my moments with. I have everything I need and probably more. Our family’s journey towards simple living forced us to reevaluate what truly brought us happiness….and what simply gave us fleeting sparks of joy. Our home and the objects inside of it do not dictate how successful, happy or rich we are. We do….and the smiles and friends we leave in our wake.

My everyday life as a full-time teacher, mom and wife is busy. So busy, in fact, that it’s easy to lose sight of my own needs in the blur of the day. But no matter how busy it gets, there are a few things I make sure I always do for me ….and just me. Because I need to be one of the most important people in my own life.
