How I Conquered my Case of the Mondays?

I remember how I used to absolutely dread Mondays! It would start during the day on Sunday. I’d get this pit in my stomach and a darkness would come over me.
I knew that my free time on the weekend was coming to an end and come Monday I’d be back to rush-rush-rush, have very little time for my family, building someone else’s dream and still be barely making ends meet!

Chicken Casserole Recipe with Organic, Non-GMO Substitutes

One of the biggest struggles I’ve had in my own health transformation has been learning how to eat healthy and properly nourish my body. I was used to making convenient, quick meals with little to no nutritional value. (Hamburger Helper, anyone?)
