Slow Cooker Mahi Mahi Tacos

Two weeks ago when I posted a photo on Instagram of my Mahi Mahi taco crockpot experiment I had several requests for the recipe. I hesitate to share new recipes with you guys until I have actually tried the dish myself. I would hate to post a recipe and have it turn out to be flop! I am here today to tell you that this recipe is most definitely NOT a flop. I have found that the secret to cooking lean meats and fish in the crockpot is to start with... Read More

Five Things Monday + Recipe

Since we last spoke… 1. We now have a decorated Christmas Tree in our living room. I love visiting our local Bachman’s to pick out a Christmas tree. Last year we bought an overpriced Fraser Fir at Whole Foods. It was a near fiasco where Allan had to secure the tree to our car on his won using budget twine. Allan drove 15 mph the whole way home. Never again. On the other hand, Bachman’s has a heated greenhouse filled with beautiful... Read More

Cooler 1: Day 5… Last day

Good evening. Happy Friday! I just love Fridays. All day Matthew and I look forward to Allan’s arrival and (usually) pizza night follows. Tonight we did not enjoy Friday Night Pizza night; however, we did have something that was completely amazing! Remember the spaghetti that I blogged about yesterday? It was amazing!!! Both Matthew and Allan wanted seconds. I love when a recipe hits on all cylinders. It will definitely be added to future... Read More

Cooler 1: Day 4

How many of you are hanging in there on Cooler 1? Does anyone plan to join me when I start Tosca Reno’s Eat-Clean Diet Stripped plan next week? I promise it’s much more lenient that Cooler 1. The following is my food journal so far today along with my planned eats for the rest of the day. Breakfast: Cooler 1 Zucchini Breakfast Bake + 2 scrambled egg whites + 1/2 yolk The Cooler 1 Zucchini Breakfast Bake was just so-so. The texture... Read More

Cooler 1: Day 3

Today has been a LONG day! At least it’s starting to cool off a little outside. Those super hot and humid days were very difficult. I hate turning on the air conditioning and we’ve had it on since last Friday. *yuck* While Matthew napped this afternoon I got to working on some food prep for Matthew and I, including two new Cooler 1 protein bar (actually one muffin and one donut) recipes that still need some tweaking. When they are finally... Read More

Cooler 1: Day 2

I am still rockin’ and rollin’ on Cooler 1 today. I plan to keep strong until Friday. Then I may have a small cheat meal on Saturday afternoon, as we will be attending my sister’s graduation party. My cheat meal will be clean, just not in accordance with Cooler 1 guidelines. Then I will be back to Cooler 1 on Sunday followed by the Stripped Plan on Monday, along with the start of NROL4W Stage 7. I am so excited to be switching things... Read More

Cooler 1: Day 1

How was your weekend? We had an amazing time  in Sioux Falls, SD celebrating the 3rd birthday of our niece, Mollie. However, today it’s back to the grind. It is HOT here in MN, 90°+ today and tomorrow, so Matthew and I are going to make a Target run this afternoon to stock back up on fresh veggies for the week and possibly pick up a mini swimming pool for the back yard. Today is my first day of Cooler 1 and so far everything is going... Read More
