Cajun Chicken Veggie Bowls

Food Prep made easy!

My goal is to help people make better choices when it comes to food. The best advice I can give is to plan and prep your meals! Bad choices happen most often because you are in a hurry, hungry and don’t have time to make anything healthy. Taking 4 hrs on a Sunday to prep your meals is the best thing you can do to keep yourself on the right track. This is a bowl that can be mixed and matched with whatever veggies make you happy :)

Pickled Veggies

Great way to add extra flavor to any dish and good for digestion

Pickled veggies are easy to make can last up to a month and add tons of yummy flavor! You can do all kinds of veggies. I generally stick with carrots, beets, and red onions. But don’t be afraid to experiment!

I use this amazing little gadget to create spirals from veggies like beets, carrots, or zuchinni in seconds! You can find link in resources and products.
