Ready to try it!

Ava Shae

Happy Friday All!

I recently tried this meal, and it is my absolute favorite at the moment! Not only does it require minimal ingredients, but it takes 30 minutes maximum to make! Check it out below.

IMG_2506.jpgWhat you need:

2 containers of Green Giant Veggie Spirals Butternut Squash

16 ounces of 93% Lean Ground Turkey

2 Cups of Spinach

Onion Salt

Garlic Powder

Pepper

Italian Seasoning

#MotivationMonday: October Challenge

Perfect way to keep the stress and weight down during the colder months!

Ava Shae

Happy October 1st All!

I thought for this #motivationmonday, I would shake things up and introduce an October Healthy Habits Challenge! My favorite thing about fall is its great movie watching, hot chocolate sippin’ weather! Though, with colder weather, I find it harder to drink water, midterms disrupt my sleep schedule, and I forget to focus on my overall health.

I wanted to use this challenge as a way for me to develop and stick to some healthy habits regarding food, sleep, and a little bit of self-care. I am hoping this will help with my stress levels and combat the flu (in addition to my flu shot!)! I am planning on tracking my progress each day by writing down objectives I have met in a notebook!

Let’s get started, shall we?
