Hi friends! How’s the day going so far?? Things feel much more normal around here this week. Everyone is back home and together, we enjoyed an awesome long weekend, and I even had some time to meal prep and get my life back together. I’m following Brittany’s recipes this week from our ebook, and am so excited to have some new dinners in the rotation. 

I took some time to chop and prep as many ingredients as possible and also made some breakfast and snack staples. We have amazeballs ready to go (pumpkin, natch), grilled chicken, steamed eggs, chopped veggies with my favorite garlic dip, and this breakfast quinoa. 

Savory breakfast quinoa

I actually got the idea for this during our Disneyland trip. Our hotel has the BEST breakfast buffets, and it’s packed with everything everyone in our family could want. Pancakes for Liv, breakfast potatoes for P, omelets and all the bacon for the Pilot, and random healthy stuff that I love, like green juice and breakfast quinoa.

Yes, our hotel has breakfast quinoa.

Overnight apple pie slow cooker oatmeal

Hi friends! How’s the day going?? A little later blogging today, as technology doesn’t seem to be my friend this week.
