I’m a big sandwich eater come lunch time, which makes coming up with something new and tasty an absolute must to satisfy these taste buds!

I decided to try (not sure why I hadn’t before) a turkey and cranberry grilled cheese sandwich using Joan of Arc’s tasty goat cheese. I had a weird craving for Thanksgiving dinner even though it’s not here yet for another couple of weeks, and this did just the trick!

It’s summer, it’s hot and you need something cool to get you through the sweltering heat; make up some tasty hemp and chia poop emoji yogurt-sicles for you and the littles!

I actually found these while walking around Walmart. They were in a middle aisle in a giant bin for less than $2; score!

I know, I know… this is actually an ice cream emoji, but kids and most of the internet claim its poop. I’m okay with poop.

I could have been super gross and made these into fudge poopsicles, but I wanted it to be somewhat healthy for my toddler since she likes eating 2-3 a day.

Don’t judge…


Two tablespoons of chia seeds contain 4 grams of protein and 11 grams of dietary fiber. That’s over 40 percent of your daily fiber needs! They’re also a good source of good fat.


Two tablespoons of hemp seeds provide 10 grams of protein and four percent of your daily fiber needs. Like chia seeds, hemp seeds are high in fat (13 grams per serving).

They’re essentially a really great source of fiber, protein, fat, minerals, calcium and antioxidants.

Seems like there’s a dedicated day for everything nowadays, am I right!?

And if you’re a big fan of candy corn, then you’re in for some sugary sweet recipes on National Candy Corn Day.

Candy corn is not my fave, but I will try it every now and again. Something about it just makes my teeth pucker and cringe in pain. Oh, that’s right, the amount of sugar that goes into these cone shaped treats.

Candy Corn Donuts

This one may be a little misleading since it doesn’t actually involve any candy corn, but it is made to resemble the candy by using food coloring for the glaze.

This recipe caught my eye because it involves a salty base, which helps with the overall sweetness of the candy corn and white chocolate. YUM!

Homemade Candy Corn Recipe

Instead of buying store bought candy corn, go give this home made candy corn recipe a try. It’s a lot more vanilla-y compared to store bought, which means it tastes way better! Although, it’s a little bit stickier too.

Since I made my husband pumpkin pancakes the other day, I decided to make some pumpkin muffins because I had quite a bit of pumpkin leftover that I didn’t want to go to waste. I mean, who doesn’t love pumpkin and/or muffins, especially when you put them together? YUM!





I like to slice them in half and put a little butter on each side after they come out of the oven. So good!

You can even heat them in the microwave the next day to warm them a little for about 15 seconds. Don’t want to do it for too long or they’ll dry out and become hard. And no one likes a hockey puck muffin!

We all know breakfast is the most important meal of the day, or you should! Lately though, I have been cutting back on having fatty breakfast meals (sigh, bacon how I love you) and replacing them with Strawberry Banana Protein Smoothies or Peanut Butter/Banana, whatever suits my fancy that morning. It’s quick and easy and it’s helping me work towards losing that little bit of weight I have gained back over the past year after stopping Nutrisystem. I stayed at the same weight for over a year until recently. Not sure what it is now, but it’s annoying me, so I’m trying to get it off now before it tries to live here permanently!

Strawberry Banana Protein Smoothie Recipe:

What you’ll need

  • 1 Banana
  • 6 Strawberries (more if you desire more of a strawberry taste). I get the large bag of frozen strawberries at Costco. It’s lasted me quite a bit and they taste just as good as they do fresh.
  • A scoop of vanilla or strawberry flavored protein powder. If you get the packaged protein powders that you can find just about anywhere, they have a scooper inside of them. Use the full scoop. I actually still have some of my Nutrisystem protein shake powders left so I’ve been using those until I run out.
  • 1/2 cup of nonfat vanilla Greek yogurt, or any flavor you prefer. I have purchased plain Greek yogurt before and it’s the nastiest stuff ever and may throw the entire shake off, so that’s why I stick with vanilla or honey flavors.
  • 1/2 cup of soy milk. Add more if not blending well or for your desired consistency.


This recipe is quick and simple, so there should be no excuses for skipping breakfast!
