Black Bean Chipotle Grilled Cheese is no ordinary grilled cheese!!!  It’s delicious and different.  Two of my absolute favorite things!!! Try using Creamy Havarti Cheese and Athenos Feta Cheese From Amazon!

Fit Friday: This summer has had some seriously fantastic play time, fun with my kids and family, great memories. This summer has not had a whole lot of workout time, and even less gym time. I have definitely needed to utilize at home workouts this summer. Workouts that I can squeeze in during nap time or in early morning hours while the older kids are still sleeping. That has meant some great HIIT workouts and some fun sweaty treadmill sessions. Today we are doing an sweet round of basics that you can do at home.

These are also all moves your kids can do to, I like to include the kids and let them try and earn some electronic time. My five year old can regularly be seen running around the block or doing burpees trying to rack up a few more minutes of Mario Kart.
