How to Stay Healthy and Eat Healthy at Work. . .

How do we eat healthy at work. . .

How do we eat healthy at work? It is very difficult when you are surrounded by sweets, treats and quick grab vending machines. Being sent home to work remote was the best thing that ever happened to me. I am able to fix my own meals and I am not tempted by the monthly cake squares we used to get.

Meal prep is the key. . .

When I worked in the office, meal prep was the key. Fixing a few days in advance always helped me stay prepared to go to work. Working twelve hour days you cannot just take your lunch, you need breakfast and a good snack too.

This is a fabulous chicken and rice soup my hubbs made this morning.

One of the chicken pies the hubbs made too.

The Hubbs and his chicken soup and chicken pie. . .

We each have our own specialties and the hubbs is definitely his chicken soup and chicken pie. The boys love these especially the soup.

  • 4-5 Chicken breast
  • 2 large containers low sodium chicken broth
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 4-5 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 T oregano
  • 5 fresh sage leaves
  • black pepper
  • 1 cup Jasmine rice

2 T Montreal steak marinade, 2T red wine vinegar, 1/4 cup olive oil, 1/4 cup water and mix that together and pour over the chicken and a little chicken broth and minced garlic cloves. Place Chicken and all of the above in the crock pot and cook on low for about 8 hrs.

After your chicken is cooked pull it out and shred about 3 chicken breast for your soup and save the other breast for your pies. Put your shredded chicken back in the crock pot with the above ingredients and cook on low for about 5 hrs, You can use your left over chicken to make pie or you can use it to pack your lunch with salads, wraps, or just over some rice.

Stay tuned for some more meal prep and healthy eating ideas from my kitchen to yours, until we eat again. . .

No New Year’s Resolutions Here. . .

No New Year’s resolutions at my house. . .

I resolve this year to be a better me, I do not want to be better than anyone else just a better me. Have said this time and again and I do try to do and be better each day. When I say be better I mean, be more forgiving of myself and others, be more patient with others, and goodness knows I want to improve my health.

I am on a constant improvement plan. . .

I am on a constant improvement plan for myself; improving my diet, physical health, and my mental health. Work required some interesting reading this past year and I am glad that it did. I read some books I probably would never have even thought about. Emotional Agility, by Susan David and dare to lead by Brene Brown were both good reads.

This is the year of the Wedding. . .

Lots of posts will be Wedding related, so much to do and so little time. You would think we have it all done but little things keep popping up and oh, you need to do that too. This is going to be a huge emotional year for our family as our first born starts his life with his new bride. I have to say I am very excited to be gaining a daughter. Sprat and Sweet G spent Christmas at our house this year, which was great.

Tasting at the Reception Venue

Fun at the Wedding Show

Been awhile since I posted last. . .

It has been awhile since I posted last, life got real busy and I will be honest I was just too tired to do anything but sleep. Getting more rest and self care will be a goal for me this year. We could all use a little more self care, I think we hustle and bustle so much to try and please everyone we lose sight of our own care.

Stay tuned. . . Weddings, Love, Self Care and family will be the focus this year. . .

Love this Lilly, so beautiful
