Bacon and Cauliflower

I love cauliflower and last year since having to go gluten free, I started cooking with it a lot more! Its amazing all the different ways you can use it and get some pretty delicious recipes too. Best part?? The kids don’t even realize they are eating a vegetable as it tastes so good. Great way to get extra veggies in as that is always a struggle for me! Try this Bacon Cauliflower Casserole, you will love it!

 

Ingredients:c3b48f73-fb6b-4369-abd9-d0903f29ff3e

 

  • 2 medium size heads of cauliflower
  • 1 – 8oz light cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup of butter
  • 1¼ cups light shredded cheddar cheese
  • 6 slices cooked turkey bacon
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

 

Directions:

 

Preheat the oven to 350. Chop up the cauliflower and cook until it is soft. While it cooks, prepare your bacon (I cook mine in the microwave for about 3 minutes). Next, chop up the bacon into small pieces. Once the cauliflower is soft, drain it. I then let it cool and use a blender to mass it. After mashing it, pour it back into the pot and add in the cream cheese and butter and stir until well combined. Pour into a baking dish and top with the cheese and bacon pieces. Cook for 25 minutes.

Monday Musings and Mom Boss: Suzanne

Happy Monday all you beautiful people!!!! I know today I woke up so thankful! Thankful for Easter and what it means, thankful for my health family, thankful to work from home, and thankful my new floors are going in!!! For those who follow me regularly, its been almost a month now since our brand new house got flooded and boy what an experience. But the end is in sight and hopefully by Friday I will have new floors to show you!12472798_10153586023724576_1431373503249024749_n

But anyways, I’ve had a lot going on the past month. For example, we decided to have a family day on Friday and go to the Zoo which is about an hour away. We got all packed up in the car and Liam got mad and cried for a good 30 minutes! Then Will got sick.  And of course of car got hit by a piece of metal! And we forgot Liam’s shoes so we had to stop and shop haha. See, It’s been one issue after another!!! Luckily I’m one of those people who just tries to laugh it off. But sometimes, even with a good attitude the stress can get to you! The past week I’ve worked on getting up early, doing my devotional and workout before the kids are up, and getting a few work things done. It has made such a difference for me! I feel more powerful to tackle the craziness the day might bring forth when I start my day right! So happy Monday!! Embrace the day, the good, the bad, and the messy of it!

This week I would like to introduce you to a good friend of mine, and a fellow SuperMom! She has two kids under the age of 2 and decided to start a new business right when giving birth to her second child! Not only dod she bring new life into the world, she kicked butt in her first month of working with Mom’s Making Six Figures. She is amazing and if she can do it….so can we! Meet Suzanne!! Make sure to go follow her on facebook at Nutrition Snob (don’t let the snob part fool you, she is the sweetest person you will ever meet!).

If you’re like me you have probably tried many different avenues to work from home and most likely have more excess product and no extra income. Since 2012 I have attempted to work with 5 different MLM companies and had all but given up when a long time friend introduced me to moms making six figures. I finally found my niche with a company that valued my work. We are not an MLM, we don’t host parties or keep product in stock. We simply show consumers a better way to shop for all the items we all use in our homes daily. All natural, non toxic products, similar to what you would spend a small fortune on at Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s at Wal-Mart/Target prices.

I never thought I would go the non-toxic route. But as so many can understand my children changed my mind very quickly. I would love to help you learn to live clean while being able to earn extra cash, supplement your income, or quit your job altogether and be your own boss. Trust me when I say it is truly possible and would love to tell you more.”

Remove from heat and add in your spinach and chicken and mix together. Cut your spaghetti squash in half, remove the seeds, and place on a baking sheet covered with foil.

Mom Boss: Michelle

This week’s Mom Boss is Michelle! She is an amazing teacher, friend, and business woman! I have watched her have AMAZING results from using essential oils and her story is so inspiring!

 

12077439_10209155368351376_1997654165_nI went from the state of poor physical health and poor financial health to great physical health and being able to keep up with my bills and tuck a bit away each month in just over two years.

Like most businesses mine did not grow instantly overnight, but steadily over my my two years with Young Living Essential Oils. I was not initially looking for a job to work at home I was looking for a way for better health. After being told disability by several doctors I wasn’t ready to give up not providing for my family. I decided to try Essential Oils and see if they could improve my health concerns. In two weeks I began to see some drastic changes. Once I saw the success that I have I decided to jump in the business end!

12527830_10209155359871164_1997731966_n

I landed smack dab in the most supportive group I have ever been a part of! I could never have imagined the group of women who are behind me! As a teacher I had support but nothing like this!

The day to days of the Young Living business involves providing education, support and guidance for others wanting to know how essential oils can help them. Providing online and face to face support to customers and a team of business people has become my passion! In a time of focus on natural healing, not using toxic products in your home making the switch to essential oils makes sense! Showing people how to USE their oils daily is key for me. I am not a sell you a product and leave you in the dark on how to use them kinda person.12007224_10209155359071144_790109077_n

If you love helping people find health, happiness and have a passion for natural healthy living or are ready to make a change to a healthier lifestyle then Young Living is a business for you!

The Key Is Consistency!

I have worked from home for 4 years now and during that time I have seen many people succeed, and many people fail. I’ve seen people join 10 different companies/jobs and quit each one after a month or two. I’ve seen people work the same business for 4 years. I’ve seen people achieve amazing success. But what sets them apart? What makes some people be able to achieve an amazing income from home, while others never see a dollar?

Many factors affect success, but one of the main ones is Consistency! Building a business is hard!! Few people find success the first day they start. But what sets them up for success is they are consistent and keep going! They know it’s going to be tough but they put in the work each day and even on days where they feel like quitting, they don’t! Even on days when your home is flooded, your car breaks down, and two of your 3 kids are sick….you have to keep going!12795481_10153538677324576_1039291868488597657_n

If you log on social media, you will see people that “company jump” as I like to call it. They join a new company, don’t have success right away, so they move on to the next one. The problem is, it takes TIME to build a business. Sure we all have those friends who start out making over $2,000 their first month, but for many people it takes time and consistency! You have to show people you believe in your company, you are putting in the work, and you know you can have success. They want to see that! Most people will NOT partner up with someone who hasn’t been with a company long, or who has jumped from many different companies. Why?? Because they worry you will leave them and this new company like you did the last!Consistency

You have to build a reputation, build trust, and build a business that will last. That won’t happen in a week. And for most people it takes a year or more!! You need to be consistent if you expect results. You can’t try and lose weight by exercising one day a week and eating pizza and ice cream the other 6 days. You have to be consistent! If you are building your business online, you need to show up to “work”. You can’t post about your business once a week. In the beginning, unless you personally speak to every person you know and give them details about your new job, most will NOT see it on social media! Unless you are consistent.  People need to be exposed to an opportunity an average of 7 times before they jump on it.

If you are finding you don’t have success in your business, ask yourself, “Am I being consistent in building my business, working my business, and following through?”

Consistency is KEY!
