Summer smoothies!

I have soo many great smoothie recipes! But for today I’ll share a few of my summer faves!!!!

Any protein shakes work for the recipes, I use my favorite shakeology. Vanilla, chocolate or cafe latte! 

What you need-
Blender or mini blender 
Frozen fruits/ veggies 
Protein shake 
Almond milk or any milk or water

Today’s fruity smoothie recipe! I enjoyed this one outside while the kids were playing! 

1 scoop of vanilla protein
 (I used vegan vanilla shakeology) 
Handful of frozen strawberries and banana 
10oz almond milk

Blend! So soo good and soo easy! 





Here are a few others I love! 

Boosted iced coffee (ok not a smoothie but cold and fresh) 
10oz coffee with almond milk 
with half a pack of cafe latte shakeology. 
Shake it up, add lots of ice! And enjoy!!




If you are looking for a balanced chocolatey smoothie, and sneaking some veggies in there haha. I have a good one for you! 

1 scoop of chocolate vegan protein powder 
1/2 cup of frozen cauliflower 
1/2 a banana 
Handful of ice 
A drop or 2 of vanilla extract
Sprinkle of Cinnamon

Blend up and enjoy this balanced cinnamon roll smoothie treat! 

Ahh there are soo many combos you can do! You get loads of protein and nutrients without all that sugar. Just look at this example I found on Pinterest. 

Ummmm 28g of sugar in a Starbucks! No thanks! 

So who’s with me! Make your own smoothies for the win!!

Easy meals!

Let’s talk easy healthy meals!

We all know the deal! Veggies, fruit, protein, healthy carbs! 
So how do we put it all together the best way to get the most nutrients from our meals!? I’ll show you some examples! 

Take a look at these combos. Nothing special, no crazy recipes with tons of ingredients you need up rush out to buy. Just every day foods! 

Let’s plate it! 



Here’s breakfast. Whole wheat English muffin topped with an egg, I think I might have a slice of cheddar cheese under there too. Some bacon and heck I threw in a broccoli from dinner left overs 😛. This! This is a balanced breakfast! Even better with Stonemill bread which is my favorite whole grain bread. 

Lunch! 



Another easy meal! I split the whole wheat tortilla in half because it was a big one. Stuffed it with deli turkey, cheddar cheese, mustard and lettuce. With a side of more veggies! So easy and balanced! 

Dinner! 


Protein and lots of veggies!!! Salad, cauliflower bites mm mm and grilled chicken. Soo good. And soo easy.

Eating healthy doesn’t need to be hard! Use what you have, keep it balanced and there you go! You’re eating healthy!

Now go try it! Plate those healthy meals and tag me on insta!! @aka_mama_t

My jeans fit!

That's right. My pre-preg jeans fit! A little snug but they zip and button with no problem! I still have a lot of weight to lose but this definitely made me more motivated! My body is different after baby 2, so that I accept. I am making lifestyle changes to reach my goal. 


I saw a picture of a woman on facebook the other day of her post partum belly after 1 month and she was saying that her belly was still big and upset about it. 

It's sad that we expect our bodies to bounce back so quickly after we have a baby. It happens for some women but for some of us it takes more work. My tummy was never the same after baby 1! 

I can say that 7 months post partum my body is finally feeling somewhat normal again. It takes time! We are all different too. I don't drop weight quickly, it takes work, and with 2 kids, I am still trying to find a balance that includes me time. 

We recently bought a playpen for the basement so baby M can play while I get some workouts in. 


With our family of 4 now we are pretty busy! So I'm always looking for fast and  easy meals that don't require too much work! 

I blogged about my pressure cooker before, because I absolutely love it. 

One pot meals in 10-30mins makes for fast meals and fast clean up!

Yesterday we made chili tacos. 


Little k loves chilli, he had 2 bowls full! 

The other night I made honduran meal called baleadas. Mmm! Soo good 
I'm making a easy recipe booklet for myself ha! 

So far it looks like baby m is a great eater
Feeding himself sweet potato! 

These kids are growing so fast! 
Baby M is lifting himself to stand! 



Ha ️adorable! 


Yesterday we got our new suv! Little k was so excited, he was waiting for daddy to get home. Once he arrived we went for a ride and both kids fell asleep ha! It was a peaceful ride. 

I can't wait for the weekend. We are finally getting some nicer weather! 

Have a great week friends!
