Although we aren’t officially doing Whole30 right now, I end up making a lot of Whole30 approved meals.  Check out their website if you have no clue what this means.  It was a really beneficial experience for us in a lot of ways.

I feel much less creative when it comes to making food in the summertime.  I want to be outside as much as possible and we just seem to be going different places a lot.  Yesterday was a busy day in the sunshine and I was getting hangry.  I wanted something quick, clean, and protein filled.  Enter sweet potatoes and turkey.  This was the perfect simple meal that the whole family ate really well, Baby E included.  And since ground turkey tends to be a more economical purchase than other meats, we will definitely keep making this one a lot!
