Summer is officially over next week and the chaos of school and sports has begun which means that I’ve already dusted off the Crockpot.

Skinny Taco Soup

I won’t go as far as to say that I’m making a goal to lose weight in 2013, but there are some baby pounds I may or may not being striving to get rid of. Ideally I’ll do this through some kid-friendly exercise (swift walks with the stroller and family yoga, anyone?) and a boost […]
