Processed with VSCO with a6 presetI’ve been baking and making a lot of food this weekend! Some of you asked for recipes so I decided to write up this quick blog post that included all the recipes. I have my turkey meatloaf, zucchini, lemon tahini sauce, banana bread & pumpkin bread recipes.

This includes my Snack 1 (mid morning 11am), Meal 2 (lunch, 1pm) & Snack 2 (mid afternoon 3-5 pm).

2. Pumpkin Bread 
This wasn’t made from scratch. I bought a mix from Simple Mills. I just needed to add 3 ingredients! The mix is made of super clean ingredients so I’ll definitely be making regular purchases of this brand.

  2. Hi there! Quick question… are the saba noodles in separate little containers, that fit into the corner? If so… that’s ingenious, do you remember where you got them or what brand it is? Thank you!!
