2019 Reflection & 2020 Vision

Travel Meal Prep: RV Style

My husband and I are typically pretty clean eaters (fruit, veggies, beans, water) but for the past 6 weeks we have been partaking in some emotional eating (big life changes) that is not our norm (sugar, alcohol).  We both like eating clean and how it makes us feel so we are looking forward to recalibrate … Continue reading
