Instagram Round Up! vol. 2

Eating Out Healthy

I realize not alllll of you have Instagram [although I’m extremely obsessed with it and don’t understand how not everyone can not be 😉 ], so I thought I’d share with you all some of my simple go-to’s I typically reserve for my Insta! {In case you missed it, you can find my first Instagram Round Up here!} While I love to cook, I also love to go out to eat. I enjoy the whole atmosphere of getting out with your friends and not needing to worry about cooking, cleaning, and ensuring everyone likes the food. When going out, I try to keep my choices light since typically restaurants pack calories into their meals. Deerwood Bistro is my favorite breakfast & lunch spot in Jacksonville. Here I ordered their curry chicken salad in a spinach wrap…

I realize not alllll of you have Instagram [although I'm extremely obsessed with it and don't understand how not everyone can not be ;) ], so I thought I'd share with you all some of my simple go-to's I typically reserve for my Insta! I have a bit of an obsession with oatmeal. Umm, do you recall this chocolate peanut butter cup or this chocolate covered strawberry recipe??? (drooool). My staple breakfast is most likely oats.

After they're cooked, I mix in 1 packet of Truvia, a dash of ground cinnamon, and topped with berries!   Making a big ol' batch of spa water and keeping it in the fridge is an easy way I stay hydrated throughout the week! Here we have 4…
