Loft Loves Teachers!






Lets talk about Loft for a second here! I love Loft, its one of my go-to business casual stores. Their clothes are comfortable, BEAUTIFUL, and affordable. 
Plus! They offer teacher discounts! So you know I am there way to much! 

All of these outfits I have worn to work and lasted all day in style and comfort. 
These pants are  MUST. They are advertised as leggings. They look like dress pants and feel like leggings. What more could a girl ask for?! 

Also, that bracelet in the second photo is from Boho Betty! If you love jewelry and simple accessories, you'll love this company. Use our discount code: mealsinheels_mkt for 20% off your purchase!

Staples to Succeed your Whole30

Good morning, friends!  Anyone start the September Whole30 that I wrote about on my previous post?  Anyone new to Whole30 and feeling a little overwhelmed with the meal prep?  Well, this is the post for you!  Everyone is busy.  Melissa and Dallas Hartwig took that fact into account when writing It Starts with Food.  They also threw in some tough love too-being busy is not an excuse, especially when it comes to your health!  Below, I took pictures of some of my staples when it comes to grocery shopping!  A lot of the food can be frozen and used for later which is key when you find you're running low on compliant food!
  



The top picture shows my staple proteins!  The Spicy Italian Chicken Sausage from Trader Joe's is one of the only compliant Chicken Sausages that they sell (always check your labels!).  The Chili Lime Chicken Burger and the Grass Fed Angus Beef Burgers are also from Trader Joe's!  All you have to do is throw them on the stove or the grill and you're good to go in a few minutes!  The Applegate Beef Hot Dogs are so good and can be found in most grocery stores.  Aidell's Apple Chicken Sausage (not shown) is another compliant sausage that is found in most grocery stores too.  Another brand I love that has more compliant options is Billinski's!  These are found at Whole Foods!
The picture on the bottom is just some produce I pick up!  That package above the strawberries is Trader Joe's Cauliflower Rice!  This can also be frozen and taken out when ready to use!  Stock up on these when you go to TJ's because they go fast!  They are so convenient if you need an extra side or if you want to make a mean stir fry without the rice! 




Lastly, these bad boys are my go-to condiments!  I first heard of Red Boat Fish Sauce from Michelle Tam over at nomnompaleo.com!  It sounds a little fishy (no pun intended!), but once you try it you'll love it!  I add it to veggies that I'm sauteing or as part of a stir fry!  Coconut aminos (the last one on the right) is a great substitute for soy sauce and can also be added into that stir fry mix or just some steamed veggies and shrimp!  They can both be found at Trader Joe's or Whole Foods!  Tessemae's (www.tessemaes.com) is a wonderful Whole30 compliant brand of dressings and sauces including ketchup, BBQ sauce and Hot sauce!  They can be found at their website or Whole Foods!  The Mayo in the middle is Primal Kitchen (www.primalkitchen.com)!  They also have avocado oil, dressings and a new Chipotle Lime Mayo that is a flavor explosion!  Add this to your tuna salad, chicken salad or smear it all over your burgers!  



Let us know if you try any of these or have any other questions about surviving your Whole30!

Back to School Must Haves

   


So LDW is here, which means school is starting or has already started. For those of you who are not teachers, these BTS Must Haves are also Fall Must Haves. 

I live in cardigans and dresses, so apologies if its an overload ! 

The first dress is from American Eagle and I am obsessed! I can't wait to pair it with all my fall accessories. It comes in orange-pumpkin color as well, perfect for fall. 

Also, the bracelet from Boho Betty is my new favorite accessory. The colors are perfect and go with so much! If you want to order your own, use the link down below and the coupon code MealsinHeels_MKT for 20% off! Trust me, you won't be disappointed!

Anyone doing anything fun for LDW? I wanted to hit the shore, but I have so much to do before school starts! 

For any questions regarding this post, please leave a comment!
