As a busy work at home mom to young kids, one thing that comes to my mind is wanting to stay fit, even though I have super busy days.

But… Time is a big factor that can mess things up – a lot

A baby and a toddler later, I finally decided now is the time and it’s never too late to start. I try and walk as much as possible as I am not a big fan of working out indoors or hitting the gym.

My food habits is something that also needs attention. I get these hunger pangs and grab the easiest snack I can get hold of.  After my pregnancies I also found I get hungry real often. Breastfeeding and running behind the kids could contribute to this. So I put together a few healthy and quick meal ideas to that are easy to get done, even if you have a busy lifestyle.
