So, if you're seeing a recipe thats posted by me (Robyn) chances are I stole it from another website. I won't hide! And I'm going to give FULL credit to the website I got this from because of course they deserve it!!
I don't have a ton of time on my plate. As I'm sure you're in the same boat. So me finding recipes on fitmencook.com is my absolute FAVOURITE way to get easy, quick, and nutritious ideas into my kitchen and onto my plate.
I also am not a great cook.
Really, you're probably thinking "how is this girl healthy... she doesn't make her own recipes, she does't cook.."
Well, LIVING HEALTHY IS MESSY! And it's not glamorous! I do what I can and I capitalize on what I'm good at - getting shit done.
So for me, that looks like bulk prepping a couple easy dishes and throwing them into a bowl or onto my plate when I'm in between meetings or rushing out the door.
If you're like me, you'll appreciate this one.
