what I’m meal prepping this week + new mini-series!

Hello, hello! I hope you’ve all been having easy weeks so far! I am currently writing to y’all through a mid-week headache and fingers tightly crossed for the rest of the week to go by quickly. This week has been busy since school started this Monday – having all the students back makes the days go by fast but I’ll be darned if I’m not running around like a chicken with my head cut off all day.

The holidays are such a fun time to bake and eat tons of goodies. And if you haven’t tried Vital Proteins’ new delicious Collagen Creamers, you need to. These diverse creamers can be incorporated into any recipe your heart desires, so naturally a holiday loaf needed to be created.

Ginger root was considered by many ancient civilizations as a valuable commodity, as it helped disguise the flavor of preserved food. It has been used in different forms and various tonics to help support digestion and the immune system.
