For the longest time, we lived the college student cooking life. To be completely honest, spaghetti is still a staple in our meal rotation. For awhile we tried to upgrade our dinners by trying Pinterest recipes. A lot of them were super weird, not very instructive, or just didn’t work. Obviously I am a blogger and sometimes I share recipes (such as our most popular recipe post, Instant Pot Chicken and Rice), but in general, I don’t really read blogs or trust blogger recipes anymore just because of all the DIY and recipe fails I’ve experienced. Recently, we started trying HelloFresh recipes.

Chicken and rice are super easy meal prep recipes. Starting with the basics can really help you get into the meal prepping routine. To start with the weightlifting basics, check out this post…

Mornings are hard. I am not a morning person. In my old routine I would pretty much just wake up, throw some cereal and coffee in my mouth and ride off to school. But, once Evan and I started trying to gain more weight, I had to eat more like an actual adult and less like a college student. When we began making real food, it took a lot longer, like half an hour. But no one has that much time in their weekday mornings right?
