Hi, guys! I receive a lot of questions from CNC readers about Designed to Fit Nutrition, a custom meal plan business that I started with my friend Kerrie a little over a year ago. It’s been a whirlwind experience so far, and, HOLY COW, do we have some exciting stuff on the agenda in the coming months. I can’t wait to share all of the awesome news with you guys! In the meantime, I wanted to…

You guys know how much I enjoy meal planning, right? It’s typically a lot of fun for me– everything from coordinating the recipes and grocery shopping list to creating new meal ideas and prepping everything on Sunday afternoon. Hey, it’s a good time for me! Although, like a lot of people, there are some weeks that I’m just not super motivated to meal plan, but I’m not someone who can totally wing it because I know that even a little planning…

Hey, hey! Happy Sunday! Just popping in real quick to share my meal plan for the week. I received a few requests over on Instagram, and I actually used to share my meal plans all the time on CNC, so maybe I should bring it back? Perhaps? Here’s what’s on the agenda this week!

Hi, friends! Happy Saturday! We’re hosting a brunch with friends tomorrow afternoon, so I did our weekly grocery shopping yesterday, which means I can share it with you guys on CNC! I actually needed to buy a few things from Target, so I decided to kill two birds with one stone and do my grocery shopping there too. I typically shop at Trader Joe’s or Stop & Shop (they have a better selection overall), but we had quite a few groceries…

Hi, friends! Happy Easter Sunday to you! Here’s this week’s edition of What We Ate For Dinner. We actually made a new recipe from Skinnytaste two different times because we just loved it so much.

Omigosh, it tastes incredible and it is so easy to make it. We loved…

Hi, friends! Happy Sunday to you! Here’s this week’s edition of What We Ate For Dinner. We actually tried a new recipe this week, and it turned out great. Go us! Haha! Sunday: Spaghetti with meat and veggie sauce We had a bunch of toppings (chicken, pancetta, peppers, onions, and mushrooms) leftover from pizza night, so I threw them all together in a meat and veggie sauce that went on top of spaghetti (all covered in cheese). It…

I’m all about fast and easy dinners nowadays. I mean, it’s a bonus if it’s a crazy-easy dinner that you can make fast! 🙂 I don’t have the time (or energy) to make elaborate recipes anymore, so my favorite meals require minimal prep, not too many ingredients, and speedy cook times. That said, here are 20 of my very favorite, go-recipes that are crazy-easy to make (if I can make them, anyone can!) and they…

Well, instead of doing that, I’m going to start posting our meals after we eat them, so you can see how they come together. I do a lot of mid-week prep (in addition to Sunday) and take a lot of “short cuts” with my…

Hello, hello! A bunch of you guys said you were fans of my weekly grocery shopping and meal plans because you get ideas for your own dinners, so here’s a quick post about what we’re eating this week.

Hi, friends! How’s your Monday going so far? Quinn is a napping machine today (who is this kid? I think Mimi has magical powers), so I had some extra time to create a pin-able workout, order our holiday cards, start dinner, and write this blog post. Hooray for naps! So, this workout”¦ I am still sore from it, and I did it LAST Wednesday at CrossFit. Holy cow. It totally smoked my arms. The second set of push-ups, which…
