Ah January – when we resolve to finally get our shit together.
Here’s a picture of me going into the new year with all my resolutions.
Tis the season of meal prep, gym memberships, 5am alarms, sober January, whole30,
Wow. That’s a lot! But I am all for putting the effort in. The worst place you can end up is right where you are now!
Productivity makes us happy.
I’m no psychologist but tell me this: when do you make the most progress on your goals? The start? The end? Nah, the middle – when you’re starting to see some results. Momentum.
I want to help you keep your momentum! You can cook at home, meal prep, and be a planner! Meal prepping isn’t just for type-A people. Its for anyone who likes to maximize their

I’m working on a meal planning template for you guys! I fill out my meal planner every Sunday before I shop. It’s been a game changer. So I thought probably other people would like to have an excel template they can use too!
By filling out your meal planner before you shop you can prevent eating out, minimize food waste, have less hectic morning and evenings, help with portion control – just to name a few!
COMING SOON! Get on the mailing list so you’ll get it sent to you when it’s ready. Huzzuh!
Ok – now about this pudding. We went to Hawaii you guys! Its was the best. AND also forever ago. Can you guess what one of my resolutions is (hint: “keep up with blog posts”)
There was a Crossfit event while we were there and everywhere we went people were FIT. Like MUSCULAR and tan and working out all over the place. There was a smoothie spot in the back of this eerie, half-empty grocery store – really, all the shelves were barely stocked in a super post-apocalyptic way. Anyway, the crossfitters lovved this smoothie spot. I didn’t get a smoothie because I was too intimated to cross the line of fit monsters to get to the counter, but my sister got a coconut chia pudding in this cute mason jar situation. There was some kind of amazing mango tropical something layered with coconut chia pudding.
Tried out a similar, more Seattle-esque version. Tuck this puppy in your meal prep template for next week and go snacktime crazy.
