Happy November Everyone!!!

Time to get in the Holiday Spirit 🙂 I know not everyone is as big of a fan as I am when it comes to Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s, but for me it’s the best time of the YEAR. (cliché I know).

WORKOUT

I was thrilled when Allie said she wanted to run this morning, because my legs were CRAVING some pavement time. After all the crap yummy treats I had last night I needed it! We did a speedy 5 mile run in less then 45 minutes and we walked each mile. We were just two chatty patty’s!

BREAKFAST

When I got back I knew I wanted to prep dinner, which meant I needed to make a QUICK breakfast. So I busted out my Vita-Mix and made another Pumpkin Spice Smoothie. Not only are these good, they are so EASY!

Then it was dinner prep time! I have been craving spaghetti and meatballs for some time now and what better way to make them then in my crock pot!

I adapted my recipe from this website.

Healthy Turkey Meatballs In the CP

1 can of marinara sauce
1 medium onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon italian seasoning
1 teaspoon dried basil
salt to taste
1 pound ground turkey
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1/3 cup dried parsley

Its such as you read my mind! You appear to understand so much about this, such as you wrote the guide in it or something. I think that you simply can do with a few percent to power the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is excellent blog. A fantastic read. I will definitely be back. http://www.familyhealthfashion.com/
