A lot of people have asked me what I eat for breakfast on a typical morning and my answer, for the past 3 or 4 years, has been pretty much the same. An egg sandwich on an english muffin with avocado and hot sauce. The base of this sandwich is homemade whole wheat english muffins. Which a) saves a ton of money and b) make this sandwich so delicious. We get our eggs from a coworker who has chickens (super jealous). And, of course, avocado and hot sauce make everything better.
Today is all about how to prep your vegetable garden soil. This is exciting because it means we are almost safe to plant our little veggies!! Yay!!!

I love when things are simple, especially packing my lunch for the week. Which is why I love making this greek yogurt berry power parfait. It has all my favorite things, and it keeps me full for the rest of the work day! This baby is packed with berries, greek yogurt, peanut butter, oatmeal, and chia seeds. AKA- it is full of protein, fiber, vitamins, and feel good vibes. (Okay, that last one might not be scientifically proven.) Also, it is easy to adapt to whatever you have on hand. I used strawberries and some mixed berries from my freezer, but it would be equally delicious with bananas, peaches, kiwis, etc. Trust me, you’ve gotta give this power parfait a try!
