This. Dinner. Is. Lit 🔥 Wow... it was so EASY too! I’m about to be working A TON the next two weeks, so meal prepping is going to be necessary. Trying to balance healthy eating with holiday goodies mixed in isn’t so hard if you plan ahead!⁣

#whatsonmyplate: Sweet potato stuffed with garlicky kale (tossed in a pb, lemon, maple syrup and olive oil sauce), roasted chickpeas (smoked paprika & cayenne), feta, dried cranberries, & crushed red pepper flakes • lemon chicken w/ Everything But The Bagel Seasoning by @traderjoes • grape tomatoes 😋⁣

One of my favorite Christmas activities is gift wrapping... 🎁 I love wrapping each gift and pairing it with a matching ribbon to make a pretty bow. I literally have a huge box of different ribbons 😂 This morning I spent some time wrapping some gifts while enjoying my go-to breakfast of Guacamole toast 🥑 on @izziobakery Chia Seed Bread, with a sunny side up egg 🍳. Anyone else have a favorite Christmas activity they love? 🎄 #goodafeats

Cheers to the freakin weekend 🍻 What better way to start the weekend than with pizza (Cauliflower crust too 😛) and a local brew 🤤⁣

Still drooling from last night’s delicious dinner @westend_nashville at the @huttonhotel... The space is renovated where 1808 Grille used to be, and the new open layout and modernized look, yet vintage vibe is worth seeing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
From cocktails to dessert, you won’t be disappointed with the chef’s menu. My personal faves were the umami short rib 🤤, honey glazed pork belly, lump crab deviled eggs, Caesar kale salad, and the house-made potato chips with bleu cheese (it was a mild one) and Benton’s bacon.... I said “mmmm” several times when taking the first bite 😂 Check my STORIES for more peeks! 👀 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Fun facts: If you stay in the hotel, they have a “record room,” where you can borrow records, and request a record player be sent to your room! Hella cool.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There is an attached music venue, @analognashville where you can catch a show or record release. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And just to prove how Nashville this place is, the Hutton also has its own recording studio you can rent by the hour! 🎶🎵 Some very famous stars coughMarenMorriscough have recorded a hit right in that very studio! #NashvilleAF #goodAFeats

HAPPY Tuesday, friends! Who else struggles to wake up in the morning? 🙋🏼‍♀️ I love waking up early, but it’s never been easy for me (I’m a hard sleeper). When I work early, I don’t wake up early enough usually to make my breakfast. I see a lot of bloggers on here preaching about morning routines and blah blah blah, but my morning routine is wake up, feed the cats, get ready, and leave. I wish I could wake up at 5 am, workout before work and make myself an Instagram worthy looking breakfast before I have to clock in at 7, but I’m just not that person.⁣⁣
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣⁣
If you’re like me and need to eat breakfast on the go - I suggest making this delicious chia seed pudding! It’s taken me months to perfect it and I finally got the consistency and flavor just right ❤️ Add whatever toppings you like! I also got these cute @rubbermaid Takealong Containers from @krogerco. They have a separate divider tray which is how I store the pumpkin seeds without them getting soggy 🥰 ⁣⁣
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣⁣
OVERNIGHT CHIA SEED PUDDING⁣⁣
🔺 makes 2 servings ⁣⁣
✖️1 c unsweetened milk (I use @ripplefoods dairy free)⁣⁣
✖️1 tbsp honey ⁣⁣
✖️ 1 tsp vanilla extract ⁣⁣
✖️ Dash of maple syrup ⁣⁣
✖️ 1/3 c chia seeds⁣⁣
✖️ toppings of your choice ⁣⁣
1. Heat milk, honey, vanilla extract and maple syrup over stove on low-medium heat for 10 mins.⁣⁣
2. Remove from heat and add chia seeds. Stir.⁣⁣
3. Divide into two mini jars or containers. Stir well. Let sit for at least an hour or overnight for best results.⁣⁣
4. Add desired toppings. Best if eaten in 3 days. ⁣⁣

During the holiday season, there’s so much temptation to eat and drink (and over eat... and over drink...🍷). It’s important to remember it’s OKAY to partake in holiday food and enjoy yourselves. 🎄”Dieting in December” just isn’t practical and quite frankly, that sounds like the title of a book I never want to read. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
❗️HOWEVER, this doesn’t mean we should eat sausage balls washed down w/ a tall glass of egg nog everyday either. Binging during the holidays is why most of us gain weight, and start to freak out come January. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A personal goal for me this Christmas is to workout more, eat healthy, but also enjoy the special occasions and parties this month. I’m sticking to healthier meal prep, and @kroger has KILLER deals on seafood rn, so had to get some scallops 😋
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🍽: #whatsonmyplate: Pan-seared scallops • @eatbanza chickpea pasta shells with a butternut squash sauce (bs soup, nutritional yeast, turmeric, red pepper flakes) • sautéed mushrooms + baby spinach w/ lemon juice. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! 🎅🏼🎶 Spotify playlist is on, the tree is up 🎄, and the decorations are hung at Miller Manor (mi casa)! 🥰 This is my first year in over a DECADE not working retail and OMG, it’s so refreshing to enjoy the holiday season again, and not be so stressed out. I’ve been enjoying everything so far about the Christmas season 😊 Who else has their tree up now 😂😂😂🎄. YAY DECEMBER!

It’s so cold in Tennessee this morning! ❄️ I’m enjoying a cup of hazelnut coffee, and this delicious savory scone. Thanks to my bestie who brought it to me last night cause she knows I prefer a salty breakfast over a sweet one! 😍 If you love @traderjoes Everything But the Bagel seasoning, this scone is for you! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
