Crock Pot Chicken Noodle Soup

There is nothing better than a homemade soup on a chilly fall day. Soup is my ultimate comfort food, it reminds me of home and always makes me feel good. Growing up my mom always made the best tasting soups and I am so lucky I got to learn from her. Soups don't have to be time consuming. I tried a slow cooked version of my mom's classic chicken noodle soup recipe and absolutely love it. It makes a big batch (perfect for freezing) and it's super simple. Throw everything in the pot and let it simmer while you tackle your day. Give this classic chicken noodle recipe a try in your crock pot and let me know what you think. Makes 8-10 servings Ingredients: 10 boneless chicken thighs or 4 chicken

Trick or Treat? Tips for Halloween

As a child I always enjoyed getting dressed up and going trick or treating with my family and friends. I even more so enjoyed eating lots of candy!

Roasted Pumpkin Seed Snack

Who else likes to snack throughout the day? I am a big snacker, I try to eat whenever I'm hungry, which means I travel with snacks or mini meals. A lot of the people I work with talk about the afternoon as being a particularly challenging time for making healthy snack choices. It often is the time we are searching for energy before heading home. A great strategy to help curb your cravings is being prepared with healthy snacks during your trigger times (i.e. late afternoon). Perhaps try having a snack right before you leave work or on your ride home (something easy to eat - i.e., a fruit or seeds). Pumpkin seeds make for the perfect portable and nutritious snack. They are filled with protein,
