Welcome to our most recent edition of TDF Weekly! It has been a wild and crazy week in The Food Nanny's kitchen. This week, I am sharing some of our favorite items and a little glimpse into my crazy life right now!
As many of you know, I am writing a cookbook! Holy cow it has been nuts. I now understand why it took my mom 7 years to write her first book! It truly is so much work between coming up with the recipes, lots of trial and error, and more dishes than you can imagine. But the excitement in getting to share all of this with you makes it all worth it! I now know why it took my mom 7 years to write her first book. Here are some highlights about the book so far:
And now you know why things have looked a little different around here. As exhausting as this has been, it is all worth it to share our love for Kamut with as many people as possible. It is truly life changing. If you haven't tried it yet, grab one of our 5 lb bags and get cooking! We are so grateful to each and every one of you! And don't forget, keep cooking, your family is worth it.
Welcome to this weeks edition of TDF Weekly! We feel like we are finally getting back in the swing of things after the Holidays. How are you doing with cooking at least 3 times a week? Its not too late to get started! Now lets get to our post:
And that's it for this week! Keep cooking, your family is worth it.
Happy New Year Fannies! We enjoyed spending the Holidays with family, but are ready to get this year started!
For this weeks TDF Weekly, we decided to mix things up a little bit. On social media and all over the internet, you will find various views on New Years Resolutions. Some people love them, others hate them. I have seen people resolving to lose weight, to read more, to eat less sugar, and the list goes on.
We just want to add our two cents to this conversation! However you feel about resolutions, you will want to keep reading!
Last week over on instagram, I challenged you to cook at least 3 meals a week for our families. We got several messages saying that seemed a little low, and we agree! The Food Nanny way has always been to cook at home at least 5 days a week. We actually like to have the ingredients for 7 dinners just in case our plans change last minute. But that can seem so daunting if you are just getting started. Three days a week is the place to start, and then add on from there!
To start, studies show that there are tremendous benefits to eating together as a family. After pulling from several articles, we have compiled a list of why we feel so passionately about dinner time.
For years, the Food Nanny has been all about cooking for your family. This is still a huge part of our message, and always will be. But we also feel so passionately about families eating the same foods together!
First off, we are not big fans of fad diets. Sure, sometimes you need to cut back on certain things to feel your best. But food is not to be feared! There is no such thing as good food or bad food, just portion control.
With this being said, it is so important to eat what your family is eating. Use good clean ingredients like Kamut and our French Salt, and create a delicious meal for the whole family to enjoy. If you do this, you can reach your goals and still enjoy the foods you love!
Finally, let's get started! Now that you see the importance of eating dinner as a family, we have some delicious meals for you. Almost all of our recipes are quick and easy. They were created to make your life easier! The biggest tip we have for you is to meal plan ahead of time. Knowing what you are making and having the ingredients ahead of time will be a game changer! Here are a few of our staple and quick meals to help get you started:
So what are you waiting for? Get and keep cooking, your family really is worth it! And guess what? You don't have to make yourself separate food to reach your goals. Join us and cook dinner for your family at least 3 times every week. Life is busy and it will sometimes be hard, but you can do it! We are so excited for everything to come in 2020.

Hello Fannies! We missed you last week! But after a wonderful trip to Mexico (more on that later) we are back to normal life around here! And with that, we have some fun things in store for you.
Do you still have some gifts to buy? Or maybe you still can't decide what you want this year. Either way, don't forget to check out our ultimate gift guide. We gathered some of our very favorite things that we think you will love too.
Tis the season for lots and lots of treats! Whether you are looking for something to bring to a party, to share with neighbors, or to enjoy with family, we have you covered.
Did you catch my crazy, amazing Mexico trip with Abi last week? It was a nonstop party! And now we want you to come on a trip with us! Let me give you a little background on how it all got started:
A couple months ago, Abi joined me for a live. I introduced her to the unbelievable Mexican vanilla one of our Fannies sends us. Abi couldn't get over the amazing smell and taste! Somehow this transitioned to us talking about our love for Mexico, and next thing we know, people are asking us to take them on a trip. So we started getting the ball rolling for you!
Before putting a trip together, we wanted to make sure we could give you a vacation of a lifetime. So we went down and explored! We were spoiled by 2 different resorts and had to make lots of decisions on what we would do with you guys.
Our rooms were decked out in welcome gifts, rice art, and so much more. They even wrote out Food Nanny in the sand! I cried when I first saw it. We seriously ate like queens. After experiencing it for ourselves, we want to give you the opportunity. We know its not the easiest time to pay right before Christmas, but this is a trip you do not want to miss. Here are all of the details:
We will be in Mexico for 6 days and 5 nights. We decided to go with the Live Aqua (All-inclusive) Resort Cancun in February. You can sign up here. Everything is built in to the cost, except for any shopping expenses. Each morning, we will start with some group yoga. You really won't have to think about a thing while there. Here is the schedule:
So what are you waiting for? Snag your spot and come with us! Between Abi and myself, you are bound to laugh your way through Mexico. Finally, here are some things we want you to consider:
And that's a wrap! Happy Holiday's Fannies. Keep cooking, your family is worth it!
