Hello everyone and welcome to the newest edition of the Whole Living Solutions website! πŸ€—

As I begin to fill each category, I hope you’ll poke around and let me know what you see that you like, what you hope to see, and what you hope to learn.

As I continue to learn about the inner workings of the website, I’m also (still) cooking up a storm; visit me on Instagram to see what’s cookin’ and stay up to date. πŸ˜‰

I appreciate all of your patience as I continue to learn the techie side of things and as a token of my appreciation, you will want to watch for a giveaway coming around Mother’s Day!

In the month of May, I will also be starting up a fun, easy and very cost effective group(s) for those of you looking for some accountability and tips in doing a little “spring cleaning”. 🌸 So be sure to stay tuned so you don’t miss out on the fun as we clean up a few things in our day-to-day busyness of life.

Speaking of busy…as many of us wrap up the school year, our calendars can fill up quickly with “end-of-year” events and the planning of summer. Here are 5 tips to help you get through this busy time:

  1. Cook once, eat twice!
    • When you can, double the portion size of what you cook or prepare (like chicken breasts or a salad) and use it for your next meal or the next day.
  2. Go with your “go to’s”!
    • Think of meals that you and your family love and make those. Now is not the time to try a new recipe.
  3. Use what you have!
    • Take a quick inventory of what is in your freezer and pantry and use those items first. It will save you time from going to the grocery store and save you money.
  4. Meal swap!
    • Share these tips with a friend. πŸ˜‰ If you’ve made a double batch of something, now you can swap with each other and not only is it something different, but you didn’t even have to cook!
  5. Use your resources!
    • If you didn’t have time to cook at all, you already used your second meal from your batch cooking, and you have zero time…grab a fresh, hot rotisserie chicken from the store and simply add sides to it. You could add no-cook sides like a salad, fresh veggies with dip and fruit. Keep it simple and don’t stress.

Keepin’ it real,
