What's for Dinner? - Healthy Burritos

What's for Dinner? - Healthy Burritos

I love me some salsa and chips, tacos, nachos and burritos! But, I had to figure out a way to make them healthier for my family.

Instead of using flour tortillas (BTW, have you tried the Mixla tortillas? Corn and flour together. Delish), we opted for the Whole Grain & Flax Tortillas from Sam's.

We replaced our ground beef with ground turkey and gave it some flavor with taco seasoning.

Burrito Ingredients

Our other ingredients included...
Tomatoes
Cilantro
Onion (I usually like red, but all I had on hand was white)
Sweet Peppers
Shredded cheese
Lemon (I prefer lime)
Avocado
Light Sour Cream
Hot Sauce

I totally forgot to take a picture of my burrito all put together. I was starving!

What do you like in your burritos?

5 Ways to Get Motivated to Clean When You Don't Feel Like It

Cleaning Motivation

I have to be completely honest here. Most days I don't feel like cleaning. I love when our home is clean, but I lack the drive to get started. However, once I start the cleaning process, I can get a lot accomplished.

Here are a few things that help me get motivated to clean when I'm just not feeling it...

Watch Speed Cleaning Videos
I know it may sound a bit strange, but there is something about watching speed cleaning videos and seeing how clean their home is that gets me motivated to clean ours.

Three of my favorites are...
She's in Her Apron
Love Meg
How Jen Does It

Get Dressed
When I take a shower and get dressed for the day, it makes a big difference in whether I get things done or not. If I stay in my jammies, I'm just not motivated to clean up the house and take care of my responsibilities.

Start with Making Your Bed
When dishes are piled up, laundry needs to be washed, floors need to be swept and you just aren't feeling it... make your bed. This works every.single.time for me. There is something about a made bed that gets me motivated to keep going.

Turn on Some Music
Listen to a local radio station or Pandora and get to dancing and singing while you're cleaning. Put on happy music to put a pep in your step.

Listen to Podcasts
There are several free podcasts that you can listen to while you are cleaning. I found several on homemaking (see here), but you can search for whatever topic you enjoy listening to.

I hope some of these ideas get you motivated to clean.

What is your least favorite thing to clean? Dishes? Laundry?

A Pouting Cat and Cross Stitch Update

Daily Life - Dust Bunnies and Tabby Tales

A couple of days ago, we ran out of Mr. Morris' favorite snacks. He expects one every morning. If he doesn't wake me up by laying on me while I'm sleeping or smacking me on the mouth... he follows me around everywhere until he gets one.

See... this happens...

Morris... Staring.

Yes. He pouts and stares at me. If I don't "notice" him, he will lay on my computer mouse to make sure that I know he's there or...

He works his way in front of my laptop just in case I didn't get the message.

Morris

He's a mess.

I was able to get quite a bit of stitching done. I have to complete the other half of the Hydrangea and do the backstitching. Then... I can start on a new one!

Here's how it looks at the moment.

And here is a close up view of some of the stitching.
