The smell of cardboard, permanent marker & packaging tape were consuming my senses... until... I prepared the bacon for our quick and easy lunch today. Boy oh boy, packing up a home is a lot of work! I really don't want to do this again for a long time. Luckily for us- it's not in our near future as we are very much anticipating settling into our forever dream home shortly. The days of moving around, renting & not being sure where to settle are over! What a grateful feeling that is. Just a few more days of packing & donating and we will seal the chapter on that life of uncertainty. And to think just over 4 short years ago we were going through bankruptcy which lead me to start my coaching business. One thing I have most definitely learned throughout life is that trails bring blessings.
So anyways, back to the smell of bacon! My new health & fitness challenge group is well underway and I am not about to have this move throw our family off. We know we feel so much better when we eat healthy - and right now we need to feel our BEST! :)
Today we made these quick and easy, PROTEIN PACKED, romaine wraps.
Really these can be customized however you'd like. If I had a fully stocked fridge I would add slices of avocado & tomato as well. (Oh yum! I'm excited to try that!) I even think sliced hard boiled eggs would be super good too to add to the protein PACK!
But the BACON really adds a nice flavor- that without it, it just isn't the same! Choosing a natural uncured bacon is best if you have the option.
Have you ever tried to cook bacon in the microwave? It's so quick, easy and the cleanup is NOTTA! That's a total win in my book! Bacon can be a total dread for me.
So, even though we are totally up to our eyeballs in cardboard boxes, have sharpies laying around every corner of the house, paper cuts on our fingers and the sound of tape sealing boxes replaying over and over in our ears; we filled our senses and our tummies with goodness. Life is good, we are blessed and- like I tell my clients- A HEALTHY OUTSIDE STARTS FROM THE INSIDE. A healthy mind and healthy gut makes every outward appearance shine!
Try these out! They are super quick, easy & filling!
