5 Quick and Healthy Lunches


Most of us are spending a lot more time at home these days! It’s literally wake up, shower, get somewhat dressed and step into your home office! My home office is the kitchen and living area – I know many of you can relate! The days get busy and let’s be honest, the meals started suffering. If you follow along on stories, you know that I often resorted to instant noodles and they’re the worst! Zero nutrition! We’re done with that! Evive has launched their frozen lunches and they’ve been a lifesaver! All you have to do is just pop them into the pan or microwave-safe bowl and boom – lunch is underway! They’re quick, healthy, vegan and so delicious! Bonus – my kids love them too! I’m sharing 5 easy lunch ideas that step up my lunch game! You can enjoy them as a bowl over rice, cauliflower rice, noodles, or have them as a soup! Check out the Black Friday sale that Evive currently has going on! 

  1. Tom Thai bowl – it’s truly amazing! This southeast Asian lunch is fragrant and delicious. I like to have it over a bed of rice, quinoa or any other grain. I also add ½ an avocado and sprinkle some sesame seeds to garnish!

  1. Mac Squash – my kids love this one! Big fans of mac and cheese in this house but the Evive Mac Squash is just better and healthier! I like to put this over any noodle I have. Sometimes, I’ll cut up some spinach and cook it together, or I just use it as a garnish. It takes no time at all and totally hits that comfort food spot! 

  1. Bam Chili – Chili is always comforting! This Mexican dish is sweet, flavourful and perfect! I love getting into this one with just some toast and a side of avocado! I also love having it over a bed of rice! 

  1. Avocado toast – It’s just always easy and delicious. I like to throw whatever I have in the fridge in mine! Sprouts, seeds and nuts – just layer it up! I also love topping it off with Everything Bagel seasoning or pink salt! Either one and it’s perfect! 

  1. Salad – find a dressing you like, and you’re more likely going to eat a salad! I love throwing whatever green I have and whatever veggies I can find. A soft boiled egg on top always adds a little fun to a salad, so definitely try that!

I would love to know if you try any of these! I know lunches can get stale, especially while we’re all busy at home. I feel good knowing that I’m fuelling my body with these quick and nutritious lunch ideas. You have to checkout Evive’s frozen meals. I love their breakfast smoothies, and now they’ve knocked it out of the park with their new lunches!

The Samsung Jet 75 Cordless Vaccum



Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would enjoy vacuuming. And then the new Jet 75 Cordless Vacuum by Samsung came into my life and I’m forever changed! Gone are the days of old, heavy, plug in vacuums! I’d like to formally welcome you to the world of sleek, cordless, powerful but lightweight Samsung Jet 75! 

Having 2 little ones means I’m cleaning daily, but vacuuming is a task I now look forward to! It is so quick with the Jet 75 and the attachments help make life easier. You can easily use it in hard to reach, high up spots, and also on the stairs.  Nooks and crannies of the couch, under the couch – no problem! The Samsung Jet 75 is perfect for anywhere you need to vacuum!

We also got the Samsung Clean Station and it’s absolutely brilliant! You just detach the dustbin, pop it onto the Clean Station, and the Clean Station automatically empties out all the dirt without any dust  scattering back into the air. This helps you breathe cleaner air! When you’re all done, you just hang it back up on the wall and voila! 

Keep Your Family Safe with First Alert


Thank you First Alert for sponsoring this post. October is Fire Prevention Month! Help ensure your home and family are protected by installing smoke & carbon monoxide alarms!

October is Fire Prevention Month and I’m so happy to be partnering with First Alert to raise awareness! As a mom, I think about keeping my family safe regularly. Being Ready for the Unexpected is part of my safety plan. My husband and I went through the house to make sure the smoke and carbon monoxide  alarm on each level and in each bedroom were working and sure enough, one needed to be replaced. We immediately installed the First Alert 10-Year Sealed Battery Combination Alarm with Voice and Location Technology! This smoke and carbon monoxide alarm actually tells you what the detected danger is and where it’s coming from. This is especially important if you have little ones in your home because it helps them know what’s going on and follow our emergency escape plan. 

As I mentioned before, I want my family to be Ready for the Unexpected. To do that, we drafted out an Emergency Escape Plan. I got the markers out, sat Julien and Harper down and got to work! They had so much fun helping and learning about what to do in case of a fire emergency. Julien is already obsessed with firetrucks, so he felt like a proud little fireman learning about our escape paths. Here are some tips to help you with your family’s Emergency Escape Plan.

·       Know at least 2 ways out of every room

·       Have an outside meeting place a safe distance away from your home

·       Practice your drill at least twice a year, in the daytime and at night

·       Teach your little ones how to escape without you

·       Close doors behind you to contain the fire 

·       In an emergency, call 911 once safely outside  and do not return to the home until cleared by officials


Be aware that smoke alarms are working 24/7, therefore you need to check on yours every so often to make sure they’re working. Ask yourself when you last changed each one and when you last tested them. 


There is no better alarm out there! The First Alert 10-year Sealed Battery Combination Alarm with Voice and Location technology doesn’t chirp in the middle of the night (because of the 10-year sealed battery!) and it’s super easy to install. The combination of our First Alert smoke and carbon monoxide alarm and our Emergency Escape plan, I’m definitely feeling more confident about keeping my family safe in case of an emergency. Check it out here to see where you can find your own First Alert alarm!
