    Shrimp Scampi with Zucchini Noodles

    Recipe of the week is back! I’m not going to commit to posting a new recipe every single week, but I’m going to do my best to post a new recipe at least twice a month. As I promised in my first Meal Prep Sunday post of 2017, because I got this Spiralizer for Christmas I have many zoodle recipes coming. I already shared my Marinara Zoodle recipe in that same post and I’m still loving it, but I made this shrimp scampi recipe last weekend and it brought me back to my childhood. I used to love pasta and shrimp scampi when I was in my teens, but I haven’t…

I’m planning to cut through at least February,…

    Sauted Spinach & Veggies

    This recipe was inspired by my most recent favorite channel I’ve added to my YouTube subscription. I recently checked out Yami Mufdi’s YouTube channel after following her on Instagram for a while and I’ve been loving her videos as she prepares for her next show. I’m kind of at an in between point with my fitness goals and what I’m working towards, and I’m looking for new inspirations, and seeing her persevere through her meal plan while while sticking to some intense workouts makes me feel like I can do anything. She shared this dish in a video a few weeks back and for some reason it sounded delishes! I’ve been…
