What we’ve been eating…

We have been eating our colors and more whole foods…at least during the week 😁

I wanted to share with you some of our yummy weekday meals starting with this lunch. We used the sweet kale salad kit and baked up some frozen air fryer chicken tenders.

These tenders were from Tyson and they were crispy and delicious. I have to add though that you need some kind of sauce to dip it in because they do run on the dryer side.

I mentioned in my last post the breakfast tacos I have been making with the Siete tortillas.

I roasted up some potatoes for the week to create a quick and delicious breakfast.

The addition of some yummy pickled veggies amped up the flavor!

Watermelon has been a go to snack recently. We get one good watermelon and we are on a roll with finding all the sweet, juicy ones.

For dinner one night we made a stir fry with yuba noodles. Yuba noodles are made from tofu and add a chewy texture and a bit of protein.

We did a combo of shrimp, broccoli, onion and mushroom. It was tasty and filling!

The protein pancakes from Kodiak Cakes and cherries have been another go to breakfast. I love cherries and am so happy it’s cherry season πŸ™‚

These are our eats as of late! What have you been munching on??


Hey sweet people!

I have had a few things piling up that I have been loving and wanting to talk to you about so I thought what better time than the present? Yeah?

Let’s jump right in starting with some fashion favorites πŸ™‚

I had bought a dress from Aritzia for a special occasion that was going to be happening in the summer! I loved it, it was beautiful. Then I went to TJ Maxx and found this beauty. It’s this blushy, mauve, nudey pink color with a beautiful floral pattern and fluttery sleeves. It’s a wrap dress that cinches me nice and tight with the tie at my waist (I do wrap it all the way around instead of just tying it on the side). It is a high/low style dress which is great for a shorty like me and Β the best part? It has pockets!!


Needless to say this won by a million miles and I ended up wearing it! I learned that it would have been much better for me to be patient because this dress came in under $30 while the Artizia dress was $70!

This next dress was also a steal at around $18! I found it at Target and immediately fell in love. I have a major love/hate relationship with the Target clothing section. It’s very hard to figure out my sizing there. I am usually an XS or smaller when it comes to dresses and anytime I try on XS there it can range anywhere from fitting beautifully to looking like I’m wearing a large trash bag. I am talking about within the same brand so it’s frustrating to say the least.


I was a little nervous going into the dressing room because I knew it could go any which way, but it ended up fitting like a dream! The buttons on the dress are functional, but they don’t go all the way down. It leaves this little rectangular open space that isn’t too noticeable because once you tie the dress at your waist it all bunches and flows together.


It feels so light and flowy and perfect for a summer day! I’ve worn this dress multiple times since I got it and have absolutely loved the versatility.

I love a good pair of earrings and while at the mall with my brother in law and his GF I found these beauties at Lucky. I love that they are hoops and have this sweet pearl detailing. I found them to be just so lovely and also very versatile. You can dress them up or down!


Moving on from fashion to food…

Summer fruit is a current obsession…I’ve literally just been eating watermelon for dessert after every meal. It is sweet and hydrating and I find it much more delicious than just drinking water πŸ™‚ Besides watermelon, berries have been so incredibly yummy as well…honestly any sweet, juicy summer fruit is a favorite!

Avocado toast with tomatoes on sourdough…I may have mentioned this before, but I just can’t seem to get enough. I have literally been having this with my breakfast every morning! I love the acidity and freshness that the tomato adds and with a little black pep-omg I have died and gone to avocado toast heaven!


That is going to wrap up my favorites for now! Thanks for joining me you guys and please tell me what some of your current favorites are in the comments below. I can’t wait to chat!

Fruit Favorites

I LOVE fruit, I love everything about it. The sweetness, the different textures, even the smell…hi, I’m Jess, the crazy fruit lady.

And when it’s summer time I crave watermelons and mangoes and grapes. To me, summer is not complete until I have eaten a store full of watermelon!


That being said, I have had no good mangoes this season and it’s slightly heartbreaking so I’ve been burying my sadness into bowls of grapes.

If you haven’t already guessed watermelon ranks pretty high on this list of favorites. It’s juicy and sweet and it has a lot of health benefits. It is high in vitamin C, it’s shown to improve eye health, decrease inflammation, hydrating so on and so forth, but I eat it because it’s delicious!


Bananas are a year-round fruit for me-they are great toppers for toast, waffles, yogurt, overnight oats. They stand alone or go wonderfully with some nut butter. Whatever way you slice them they are a tasty treat (I sound like a commercial, but I promise this is not a #spons πŸ˜‰ )


I love grapes, especially (mostly) red ones, but I saw these champagne grapes and wanted to try them after reading this post on Become Betty. Mine were green and a little tart, but still cute and yummy!


Lychee is a totally new fruit for me, but I am super happy I spotted them at a grocery store. They are sweet and mildly flavored, unusually addictive. The only way I can describe it is if you have ever peeled the skin off of a grape and eaten it-it’s that texture, but smoother…Does that make sense?!


All my lychee eaters and experts let me know if my description sounds right. I hope you lovelies have a wonderful Friday πŸ™‚
