Happy Weekend, FLF girls! Jenn here, sharing another Weekly Workouts + What We're Eating post! This week was awesome-- I tried a new recipe, killed my workouts, and got a lot of work done. Not to mention the Christmas satellite radio stations are live and make me smile every time I get in my car... WINNING!

WHAT WE'RE EATING 

Here are some highlights from the week! 

SPAGHETTI SQUASH JAMBALAYA

I've been in a little bit of a food rut, cooking the same trusty recipes all the time. I needed flavor change and this one delivered. Get the recipe here!

RED ROBIN! YUMMMM!

Red Robin's Wedgie Burger! My husband is a HUGE Red Robin fan. Huge. Large. Loves it. I love their wedgie burger, and the fact that you can order any burger on the menu "wedgie style" with a lettuce bun and a side salad instead of fries. I love that I can always find something on a menu everywhere I go that's fat loss friendly. Girls, this lifestyle ROCKS. 

ON THE MEAL-PREP MENU

I'm making my menu for next week and thought I'd share! I'm making these two of Leslie Ann's Faves:

CHIPOTLE MEATLOAF

PALEO SHEPHERD'S PIE

I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THIS WEEKLY WORKOUT + WHAT WE'RE EATING POST! LEAVE ME A COMMENT BELOW AND LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK! 

Have a great week!

Fat Loss Foodies' Thanksgiving 2016 Recap

Fat Loss Foodies' Thanksgiving 2016 Recap

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday because I just flat-out love cooking and feeding people, especially when I feel good about the foods I'm making.

Here's a recap of my 2016 Thanksgiving!
