Weekend Adventures, Pre-teen Attitude and Meal Prep for the Week

Took the kids to Canada’s Wonderland last weekend on a whim, and took advantage of our season passes and the 19-degree fall weather. The day started off rocky with my pre-teen son being in a moooooood. But by the end, everyone pulled through and we finished the day strong with a few rides and funnel cakes!  We're excited to go back and experience Halloween Haunt in a few weeks! This coming week will be busy so I've pre-tracked some meals in my WW app to keep me on track.  A few things I prepped for easy grab-and-go meals: I made some WW Vegetable Soup. Baked some portobello mushrooms for a meatless main dish.  Made some hard-boiled eggs. Cooked some quinoa and chopped veggies to make some quick salads. Washed and chopped lettuce, cucumbers and peppers for easy meals and snacks. What's on your to-do list this week? On our favourite ride!
