Balancing work and life always has it’s challenges , so when trying to manage both, productivity and wellness are my top priority! Anytime, I discover new ways to maximize or optimize those priorities, it’s a win for win for everyone, especially my hubby!

Everyone knows I’m the cook in our household so I try to come up with easy vegan recipes that we both can make and eat on the go. That means we spend less time ordering not so healthy vegan fast food on UberEats and more time maintaining a healthy diet that contains fewer calories and more nutrients!

I KNOW GUAC IS EXTRA! BUT SO AM I!

We all know by now ‘Guac is extra” but the taste and health benefits makes it all worth it! That’s why In honor of #guacamoleday I wanted to share one of my all-time favorite ways to eat guac at home when I am busy working or strapped for time.

Funny story. My husband didn’t like avocados but liked guacamole. He didn’t realize they were one in the same lol. Now he loves avocado!
