Carrot Raisin Bran Muffins


 

2017! Bring on the new year with health and happiness. I had a baby last year. So 2017 is is the year for me to get the baby weight off. I want to also get my health in check and that means making a lot better choices when eating and trying to get more veggies and fiber in my diet.


When 4pm hits, my cravings can sing a different tune than the celery sticks and rice cakes I should be reaching for. That is when I hit a slump for the day. I have been up since 6am chasing a little munchkin and working every chance I can squeeze in.

Roasted Mixed Nuts

Hi y’all! It’s Becca from Two Places at Once and I’m so excited to share these roasted mixed nuts with you today. Only two weeks until Christmas! Are you ready? Do you have your menu planned? Don’t worry, I don’t either! But, I also don’t have to plan a menu for Christmas. All I will have to help out with is dessert and potentially appetizers.


That’s exactly why I decided to make these roasted mixed nuts! Before I serve anything to guests, I usually do a trial run to make sure I like the recipe. Since I might use this recipe for the upcoming holiday, I did a run through over the weekend and the recipe worked out perfectly.
