Healthy Road Trip: Wilmington, NC

Being healthy on a road trip can be hard…you spend long hours in a car with nothing to do…there are convenience stores and fast food along the way…I get it!! However, it can be done! With a little preparation and a plan to stay active while you are away it will be like you never left the comfort of your daily routine!

For this trip, we drove to Wilmington, NC. If you have never been I highly recommend it! It is a cute little beach/river town with tons of things to do and see.

Low Carb Sloppy Joes, Two Ways

Sloppy Joes…an oldie, but a goodie. Or if you’re from Western Maryland…Steamers…an oldie, but a goodie! Yes, out my way we call them Steamers. My grandmother used to make the best Steamers! No Manwich for her though. She would make them with plenty of ketchup – which means lot of added sugar.

I have shared a Sloppy Joe recipe before…but I consider this the new and improved version! This one has no Splenda and its served up in an “open-faced” style low-carb “sandwich.” I have even come up with two ways of serving this deliciousness up!Read More »

Let’s Get Active: Charity Bike Ride

I am no novice when it comes to charity events. I volunteer a lot in my community and really like to give back. Most recently, I participated in Walk MS and it was so much fun to get some exercise in, support a great cause, and interact with others.

However, two weekends ago I stepped up my game and participated in a 30-mile charity bike ride! The bike ride called Tour de Frederick supported my local Boys and Girls Club and the Rotary Club. The Tour de Frederick had many options for people to participate including 10-mile, 30-mile, 60-mile, and 100-mile rides! This being my first year I felt that the 30-mile option was best!

Garlic Chicken Meatballs and Zoodles

I love zoodles! And I love zoodles even more when I don’t have to zoodle a zucchini myself 🙂 So, when I found zoodles ready to go at Aldi, my day was made! This recipe idea stemmed souly from the fact that Aldi had zoodles in stock. Also, I wanted to make some protein sources for meal prep that I could freeze for later use.

So, I made a crap ton of meatballs, ate some of them last week, and stored the rest in the freezer for later.

If you like easy recipes, 30 minutes meals, garlicky deliciousness, and zoodles this recipe is for you!
