Brighten up your favorite salads this winter with Pomegranate!
I absolutely love the visual presentation of this winter salad recipe as the goat cheese resembles fallen snow, and is complimented by the crisp greens and ruby red pomegranate jewels – not to mention it is literally bursting with flavor!

It was the first week back to school and to help our mornings go more smoothly I did some bulk cooking. One of the easiest and most nutritious breakfast foods…protein pancakes. Especially delightful for the boys when they are chocolate ones!
Here is the recipe I used…

Alexander Approved Smoothie Recipe
Smoothies are a staple in the Rigsby household.
The hot days of summer has everyone turning to a refreshing smoothie for a quick snack or meal on the go. I tend to experiment and come up with new combinations for the boys to test out.
While Tyler is open to anything and has always been a good eater, Alexander is quite the opposite – a very picky eater. When I make smoothies he is all about the plain vanilla or chocolate.
This morning in preparation of the Summer Smoothie recipes that I will be posting this weekend, Alexander came into the kitchen and requested a smoothie.

Quench Your Thirst With Infused Waters
Add some flavor and zest to your daily water intake with infused waters!
These are the real deal when it comes to Vitamin Water for it’s all natural and YOU get to choose your ingredients. The perk is that in creating your infused water concoction, the jars and pitchers of water are beautiful and make fabulous center pieces as well!
My go to recipe has been sliced cucumber and mint leaves. I recently came across a recipe for cucumber, blueberries and lime ~ so Yummy! Also piqued my interest in expanding my infused water options.
Since my boys are water drinkers, they have enjoyed the added fun and unique flavors this summer – which is only expanding their palates – gotta love it!

There’s nothing like the refreshing scent of citrus to awaken the senses. It’s sunny, refreshing and energizing and because of its familiarity, also comforting and relaxing.

Weekend Warrior Workout Challenge for Busy Moms
Perform this weekend warrior challenge as a circuit – do 10 reps of all 4 exercises in a row repeating for 20 total minutes. How many rounds can you complete while maintaining good form?
1. Goblet Squat
Be sure to go nice and low on this, elbows between knees
2. Single Leg Row
Balance on one leg holding bands or cable. Alternate legs each round.
3. Push Ups
If you cannot do full floor push ups, do them at an incline so that way you are still targeting your core.
4. Hanging Leg Raise
I like to keep my legs straight at the start, but if I start to putter out, will just draw knees up to chest. If you are unable to “hang” you could modify and perform leg raises while lying on a mat.
Be sure to follow your workout challenge with a good post workout shake
- I love Prograde Workout – along with a good total body stretch!
How did you do?
