Friday Fill In 2.1.18 [ Healthy Super Bowl Options,

Fri-YAY! We meet again. I’m so excited it’s finally February. I love February. I love Valentine’s Day. I love the short month, and I love that Spring is right around the corner. What are you guys most excited for this month?

Yesterday was the first day using my Mint budget app (get the deets here) and I’m reaaallly hoping I can stick to it all month long to create better spending habits. Today I’m going to share some healthy & easy Super Bowl Recipes, a few almost Spring cuties that have been poppin’ up in my closet and the most popular January items you guys loved!


This year, I’m all about healthy + happy, simplified. I want to create healthy, delicious recipes for you guys that don’t call for you to run out and buy a million strange ingredients from Whole Foods. #AintNoBodyGotTimeForThat

Today’s edition of healthy, simplified is perfect for the Super Bowl (or even a fun dinner!). 

First up, sheet pan ‘nachos’ meets a delicious tortilla chip alternative. The best part is these can be tweaked to fit any diet/food restrictions you may currently have.

Plantain Sheet Tray ‘Nachos’ 


2 Boxes/Bags of Plantain Chips (These are usually in produce aisle or by the dried fruits/nuts)

Salsa Chicken (three ingredients, crock pot friendly, healthy & easy!)

Black Beans (Drained & Rinsed) 

Shoepeg Corn (Drained & Rinsed)

Rotel Tomatoes (Drained)

Shredded Cheese 

A pinch of cilantro, paprika & chili powder

1 Lime

Other optional toppings: pinto beans, onions, avocado, jalapeƱos, lettuce, whatever you like on your nachos! 

-These are so simple! On a baking sheet place plantain chips and whatever toppings you prefer. Sprinkle with cheese & seasoning. Broil until cheese has melted. Enjoy!

Lately I’ve been craving all things buffalo, but I have been hesitant to eat any because buffalo can equal lots of butter, ranch and fried foods. Solution…

Baked Buffalo Turkey Balls


For Meatballs: 

1 Ground Turkey

1/4 Cup of Whole Wheat Bread Crumbs (plain bread crumbs will work too)

1 Egg

1 tbsp Minced Garlic

1/2 tbsp Onion Powder

Pinch of Salt & Pepper 

For Sauce: 

1 Bottle of Frank’s Red Hot (Make sure it’s just hot sauce, not wing sauce)

1/3 Cup Coconut Oil 

Dipping Sauce of Preference (Both RJ & I love Tessemae’s Dairy Free Ranch but Walmart has other great greek yogurt ranch options!)


1. Preheat oven to 425 F 

2. In a large bowl combine all meatball ingredients

3. Roll into small balls or use a cookie dough scoop to place meatballs on a lined cookie sheet

4. Bake for 6-7 minutes, flip all balls over and bake another 6-7 minutes until fully cooked

5. While meatballs are baking, combine bottle of hot sauce with coconut oil and cook for 30 second intervals in microwave until coconut oil is melted. Whisk with a fork or whisk until combined. 

6. Toss meatballs in sauce & place back on baking sheet. Cook in over for 3-4 more minutes. 

7. Serve with dipping sauce! 

*These would also be great served with a sliced cucumber underneath each one! These were SO yummy, we ate them for dinner on a flatbread.

 We’ve been getting a few days of nice weather here and there. I must say it’s giving me quite the spring fever! I am trying my hardest not to shop for spring yet, but I seriously just can’t resist. I’ve picked up a few pieces that work now and later, they’re just so good I had to share. 

A head’s up: my all time favorite shorts sell out every year. This is the perfect time to snag a pair before all the sizes are gone. They are pricier but I’ve had mine 3+ years and they still look brand new! I wear them SO much, seriously one of my favorite pieces I’ve ever bought. 

Almost everything below is under $30!

| Pink & Yellow Leopard Top | Straw Bag with Poms | Palm Print Leggings | Polka Dot Wide Leg Pants | Fruit Bathing Suit | Eyelet Top | T-Shirt Material Jumpsuit | Culotte Sweats (Only $8!) | High Waist Camo Leggings | Half Moon Ring Bag (Chloe Dupe for $13!) | Wrap Mini Skirt | Studded Sunglasses |  

With the end of January, I thought it would be fun to share the five most popular products from last month! 

| 1. TYLER Laundry Detergent Glam Wash (Seriously SO good) | 2. Aerie High Waist Camo Leggings *30% Off! | 3. Airtight Kitchen Containers 7 for $35 | 4. Free People Fur Slides *50% Off | 5. Milk Moisturizing Sheet Masks 5 for $14 |

Sorry for such a long post! I just had so much good info to get out to ya before the weekend! If you try any of these recipes, please don’t forget to share your feedback with me. Nothing warms my heart more than seeing you guys enjoy my creations. XO
