February Chat & Meal Plan (!)
A Healthy Slice of Life

3d ago
Good late February Monday morning! How’s it going? How is life? February has absolutely flown by around here, despite being out of my element (AKA out of my kitchen). Temperature have been mild, mid-50’s, so we’ve spent a lot of time outside on walk, playing kube, and grilling. I was talking to David the other day about the mild winter and he said “well, that under water volcano supposedly created a temporary rise in global temperatures I believe.” I stared at him like what? Then went to google and found out he was spot on- the 2022 Tonga eruption. I swear David always knows random tidbits to ..read more

Pantry Can Organization
A Healthy Slice of Life

6d ago
Last year we did a pantry refresh and I don’t know what took us so long; we love the results! Changing the wire shelving to solid wood and being more thoughtful in organizing and storing products in a more functional way made a huge impact and still makes me smile every time I open the pantry. One of the biggest upgrades was my pantry can organization system because I feel a well stocked pantry means having a well stocked carton and can supply. Canned goods are pantry staples that can be used for so many different recipes. Being well stocked can help you easily prepare simple meals at a momen ..read more

Five on Friday
A Healthy Slice of Life

The kitchen reno isn’t helping at a time when I’d love to be baking bread, making soup, and leaning into the cozy season, *but* do you know what has helped? The sunshine! We have seen a lot of it this week and on Wednesday alone I spent two hours sitting in it and chatting with friends after co-op while the kids played basketball and dodgeball, then came home and spent another hour playing family Kube before it fully set. Sunshine is lifegiving, and if we aren’t going to have snow, then I’ll take 60 and sunny all day long, please. And with that, it’s Friday! This weekend’s plans include watch ..read more

My Nightly Self Care Routine
A Healthy Slice of Life
by Brittany Dixon
3w ago
I wasn’t sure if this was a shareable post because anyone with big kids knows that there is no typical night. I might be ushering one child to an activity then swinging by to pick up the other and getting home in time to serve the crockpot dinner that has been simmering for the day. However the more I thought about, the more I realize that while my nightly self care routine might not look like a candle lit bubble bath and spa music, there are certain habits that stay fairly consistent that contribute to my wellness and peace. My Nightly Routine Magnesium In the beginning of 2023 one of my goa ..read more

Steamboat Family Ski Trip 2024
A Healthy Slice of Life
by Brittany Dixon
3w ago
I didn’t mean to ghost you last week, but between the kitchen getting completely demoed and organizing packing for the ski trip (this list is so helpful), everything else got pushed to the back burner. Still, we managed somehow to be packed and ready to go early Wednesday morning. I made reservations for The Parking Spot (which saves a few bucks) and they got us to the airport in plenty of time for our first leg, Charlotte to Denver. A short hour layover and we were int he air heading to Hayden, the small airport outside Steamboat Springs, Colorado. We rolled the dice and found an uber, which ..read more

Good morning from the land of piles. As I sit on my couch, because the office is full of piles, I see to my left the dining room piled up with plates, glasses, and cookware. I see to my right piles of ski gear. I see in front of my piles of laundry waiting to be folded. Usually a scene such as this would make my eyes cross and roll back in my head, but I’ve mentally prepared for it so I’m breathing deep and embracing it. See, it signifies the beginning of change, which will be a common theme for the year. Kicking things off is changing our kitchen! Demo begins today so we spent the weekend cl ..read more

Crispy Baked Chicken Thighs
A Healthy Slice of Life

1M ago
I wanted to title this “Hailey’s Chicken” but that wouldn’t really be the most descriptive, would it? However, it’s what we call it in our house for two reasons. First, it’s Hailey’s favorite chicken dinner. Second, it’s the meal she can prep and bake herself. These crispy baked chicken thighs are our go to chicken recipe because they are: economical – chicken thighs are less expensive than chicken breast per pound. delicious – the dark meat of the chicken thigh versus the white meat of the chicken breast provides more flavor. easy to make – chicken thighs are less likely to dry out than chi ..read more

Happy birthday to David

One of the biggest gifts of each birthday that passes is the gift of perspective. Each year here one earth makes the wish list smaller and the gratitude list longer, and we were so happy to celebrate this amazing man that we all love so much. But let’s back up for a minute. Last week K caught some bug that’s been going around. Her symptoms were low grade fever, fatigue, congestion, that all settled into a seal barking cough. Fortunately (knock on wood), the rest of us have held up fine. See all natural wellness arsenal here. Still, it lent itself to having a more withdrawn and low key weekend ..read more

24 Hours in Greenville for David’s Birthday
A Healthy Slice of Life

My boo has a January birthday and so often after the chaos of the holidays we are in the mindset for a low key and relaxed celebration. Though we did pull off the surprise Grove Park Inn for his 40th. This year, though, one of our goals is more time focused on marriage, so his birthday felt like the right time to kick that off, even for just a quick overnight getaway! My mom came up on Thursday night and Friday morning we were heading south to Greenville, SC. Honestly the car ride itself felt like a date. Greenville is only about 2.5 hours away and we chatted it up the whole time catching up ..read more
