Fruit Cuppa Cuppa

One day … I found “Cuppa Cuppa”, and I instantly fell in love.

My love was not just because this stuff is so good but also because it is super EASY to make! You can use any kind of fruit or pie filling, I like to blend the fruit just a bit for a smoother texture once it is baked but you can leave the fruit whole too. It is just a matter of preference.  This is my recipe – Enjoy!

LE 0003: The Backup Plan – Meal Planning

Today, we explore the ‘backup’ plan, what it is, why we need it and ways to ensure success when we need to use it!

What is it? A safeguard to stay on track when setting out on your meal plan endeavor.

Why have it? It is not a matter of will a meal plan fail, it is a matter of when. The definition of ‘fail’ could mean several things to include the simple fact of not wanting or making the meal that was outlined for that day or week.

How to ensure success? Ask what is the most loved meal. Go for easy, quick or semi-ready when you need to use a backup idea.
