Second week of summer is in full effect! Now that the weather is getting hotter and we’re spending more time outdoors (and at the pool!), I know a lot of you are wanting to get in better shape. You’re not alone! Even though I’ve lost most of the baby weight, I still have about 5 pounds to lose and I’d like to put back on the muscle I lost while I was pregnant. I won’t be able to workout with my trainer as much this summer, and I know most of you probably workout alone too, so I’ll be sharing some of my workouts tips this month.View Post
Here you’ll find lots of healthy meal options along with some not-so-healthy (but really yummy!) things because, who wants to eat chicken, rice and veggies all the time?!
We knew it couldn’t last forever and that all good things must come to an end. That doesn’t mean it wasn’t hard to say goodbye. We received the very.last.meal from the meal train that our wonderful friends set up for us last week. #waaaaahhhhh!!!! Such a sad day! Suddenly we are faced with having to plan, shop, and prepare our own meals again. We got so spoiled by having these meals delivered, piping hot and freshly prepared, right to our front door. But now it’s time to fend for ourselves again. Life is hard, right?! Well, it kinda is with a newborn!View Post
Did y’all have a great Halloween? I’ve been under the weather lately, so my Luke Skywalker (son) and Superman (hubby) had to trick-or-treat without me. They went to a Halloween party and I figured I should sit it out since I didn’t want to get anyone else sick. But, that didn’t stop me from dressing up for the occasion! I found that tank on Amazon and they had one for the guys too. So funny! I think I’m more excited about the extra hour of sleep though. Felt so good and was really appreciated.View Post
Happy Friday again! This week sure flew by and, surprise!, we’re already nearing the end of October. I drove down one of our main streets at night recently, Westheimer Road, which passes by the Houston Galleria and through the popular Highland Village, and noticed that the palm trees that line both sides of the street were strung with white Christmas lights. It got me a little excited for the holiday season, which will be here before we know it.
I’ve got some popular pins to share with you today. And I’ve been working on organizing my Pinterest boards better and have added some new boards Men (mostly men’s fashion/style) and Wedding (just because the photos are so pretty and for those of you looking for wedding inspiration).View Post
Happy Friday! If you’re looking for some weekend reading, you can check out these super popular pins I’ve pinned on my Pinterest boards lately. And for you bloggers, I also wrote a post about growing your blog with Pinterest that you can read HERE.

I don’t normally post my instagram pics (@honeywerehome) on the blog, I prefer to keep them more intimate snapshots of day-to-day life, but Sunday morning’s breakfast I can’t stop thinking about. If you are in Houston, Revival Market is a local spot in an area of town known as the Heights. The Market is popular for it’s fresh selection of meats and food goods, but is also a deli and breakfast cafe. I tried it for breakfast for the first time this weekend, and was hooked after the first sip of coffee. I love a good cup of coffee in the morning (so much so that I added a “Coffee and Tea”View Post
Are you getting into the summer groove yet? Our temperatures are rising and we’re seeing longer days and lazier weekends. Cooking feels lighter and I’m craving all things fresh right now.
I’m loving this easy summer dinner so much that I’ve had it twice in the last week! The recipe for the chicken marinade and tomato/avocado salad is at Honey We’re Healthy if you’re interested.

One of my favorite starters to order at a restaurant, aside from the cheese plate, is the tuna tartare. To satisfy the craving at home, I make something similar once in awhile. This recipe does call for a couple of unique ingredients you may not necessarily have on hand, but you can pick them up at most grocery stores.
Spicy mayo (I get it from the sushi counter at my store- it’s about $1.00 for a small cup)
Wasabi paste- comes in a tube in the Asian aisle
Black sesame seeds
I sear the tuna in a skillet over medium high heat for about two minutes per side and them remove and let rest while I dice the tomato and avocado.View Post
I posted this protein brownie recipe on Honey We’re Healthy awhile ago and it’s been such a hit, that I wanted to share it here too. I make these all the time and eat them as snacks and my son loves them too. The consistency is actually more like a cake, but you don’t have to feel guilty about eating this cake. The recipe comes from Jamie Eason and I put in italics how I tweaked it.
1 cup Oat Flour (I ground oats finely in a food processor)
2 scoops Vanilla Whey Protein Powder
I wanted to take a minute here to thank you all so much for reading and supporting my health and fitness blog, Honey We’re Healthy. I’m proud of the content I’ve built up with the help of my friend and food contributor, Jennifer of The Chronicles of Home. Lately, I’ve been sharing some of the meals we eat around here (which are quick and simple to make since I’m no gourmet chef). And like many of you, I’m a busy mom without a lot of time to create elaborate dishes on the weekdays. Weekend meal planning has been a life saver!View Post
When I first created the chalk wall in our kitchen (at the end of August!), I envisioned writing out our weekly menu on it, but I admit, this week is the first week I’ve actually done that. I got inspired by my gorgeous friend Carmel at Our Fifth House. She’s and her family have recently gone Paleo and she shared a delicious cauliflower hummus recipe on my health blog, Honey We’re Healthy last week.
I definitely prefer to plan our meals for the week, but that doesn’t always happen.View Post
My weight loss journey has hit many plateaus, but not surprisingly, I’ve always seen the biggest improvements when I’ve eaten a really “clean” diet. For me, that means finding something high protein that I can eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for about five days straight, then switch to something else. And when I’m eating really healthy, I’m also more likely to workout. Conversely, if I’m in a “bad” eating rut, I’m not likely to be hitting the gym.
I’m no dietician or nutritionist and only know what has worked for me. Some of you read my story about losing the baby-weight and asked for more info on my diet,View Post
