2020 Vision

Happy New Year!

I’m not one for ‘resolutions’ because why wait for a new year to start making a change? I do however love the excitement, cleanse, empowerment and optimism that surrounds a new year.

I do love setting realistic, achievable goals for the new year on Jan 1. In 2019 I made some serious changes and crushed some serious goals. I lost 50 pounds, I practiced an act of self-care monthly, became comfortable with being misunderstood, and turned my focus to the family that loves & supports us.

I’ve got even bigger goals for 2020. Follow along for all my weight-loss tips, tasty recipes, favorite things and more!

As always, cocktails & curse words included!

Mini Breakfast Quiche: Gluten Free, Paleo & Whole30

Like everyone else we’re feeling the post-holiday spare tire, extra pounds and bloat here in the Malmy household. Leep and I had our best success in weight loss and healthier lifestyle when we were training for our Tough Mudder and doing a “30 day Paleo” challenge. [post on this coming soon] So for 2017, we’re going back to this lifestyle.

One of our favorite go-to breakfasts are these mini quiches. You make a bunch at once and freeze. Then just pop in the microwave in the morning and go! They’re totally versatile and can easily be changed to avoid repetition. Plus, they will fit in any gluten free, paleo or Whole30 lifestyle you’re doing! Continue reading

Copy Cat: Japanese Pan Noodles

PanNoodles

Leep and I have recently discovered the wonder that is Noodles & Company. My favorite being the Japanese Pan Noodles with chicken. Leep had the brilliant idea of trying to recreate this with the leftover soba noodles we had from making our spring rolls last week. With Gunnar allotting a maximum of 15 minutes for us to scarf down food before crying, this is a perfect easy, quick fix meal! Now while they didn’t quite compare with Noodles & Company – they’re were still super delish!
