Team Be a Size You is Joining Forces With The U.K.

I am so excited about what is about to happen for those of us whose passion is to help as many people as possible live healthier, happier, and more fulfilling lives.

To not only fulfill their health and fitness goals and feel good in their skin, but to also achieve their business dreams.  If they have been dreaming about a different financial future for their family, the opportunity (which also equals work!) is there for them.

And for my U.K. Sisters, it is now available for you!!!

My vision for Be a Size You, this message of Be a Size You, has always been to strengthen our bodies to serve others better.  It has never been about looking like a one size fits all version of health.  I have encountered so many beautiful women in my life who have been encouraged and who look nothing like me, take their fitness journey’s to the next level and truly reach total and whole health.  I don’t think that message has to be limited to just the wonderful women of US, and Canada, but to the U.K. as well.

I am so excited that it is finally upon us and we get to invite you, you gorgeous and hope filled women across the pond, to join us in the movement of living well, helping others do the same, and building a successful business that can bless your family and make your dreams come true.

Here is why we want you to join us (and join Team Be a Size You!)

The U.K. has a similar health crisis, in where there are many individuals who are in need of hope and motivation and support in their health and fitness goals. You get to be on the front lines of helping those individuals with Beachbody’s fitness programs and Shakeology in order to support their nutrition and fitness.

I am a Lifetime Three Star Diamond Coach and have been with Team Beachbody for six years. What that means is I am a leader in this company and I have developed leaders on my team who are doing as I do: helping people with their goals and developing other leaders within their teams.  In these six years, I have watched it grow and develop and create better training and tools for us coaches so that we can truly be successful in growing our businesses and help people get healthier. Beachbody has the best formula in order to help combat the health crisis we find ourselves and our loved ones in:

Fitness + Nutrition + Support = Success

You cannot transform without those steps. You might have a little success if you break the formula apart, but you won’t experience all of what you are hoping for. Why settle for less?  Go for it!

I have always dreamed of being a part of something bigger than me.  Bigger than all of us.  We may not be able to save every person, but we can certainly work together to try.

I want to dream bigger and pursuit incredible things.  I want to partner with women who truly want to learn, grow, serve, and be better.

I want the message of Be a Size You to ring loud and clear all over the world.  That they are strong, capable, worthy, and can achieve incredible things if they are willing to work for it.

As your coach and guide, you get to be the hero in your own story. I will help you with everything you need to know in order to create a successful business of your own, right there in your living room.

You can learn more about this incredible opportunity, you can go here so that you can be sent more information prior to our launch: Team Beachbody U.K.

To join my team and hear our stories of how we got started and why Team Beachbody has changed our lives, please fill out this questionnaire so that I can get to know you better and get you plugged into a private group to hear more about what we do and why we want you to join us! No pressure at all!

Be a Size You,

Get Your Meal Prep On, Mama!

Hi Sister Mama Friends!

I wanted to share with you something I ordered today that I think would help a lot of you when it comes to prepping your meals or even prepping lunch/dinner for your family.

If you are constantly on the go and needing to pack your lunch, or you have active kids and your family is regularly out of the house each week thanks to events, games, activities and you want to avoid eating out every day, these will be for you!

I found them over at Jane and there are a couple of deals available for you to choose from.  One of them ends today I believe (the 2-container set), but the other is until Friday.


1-Compartment Food Containers / Set of 10


2-Compartment Food Containers / Set of 10 

They each come in packs of ten and they are inexpensive, BPA Free, Dishwasher safe, Microwave safe and they are great for packing in lunches or meal prepping for an entire week.

I just purchased both the 2 compartment and the single compartment myself because I swear it feels like we are never home to eat at the table. I would prefer to have everyone home at a certain time to eat together, but right now, that is not our reality.

I also don’t want to eat out every single night as that is just not good on the wallet or on our overall health.  So investing in these tools seems like a pretty sweet deal to me!

Would love to hear your thoughts! Have you purchased these containers?  Do you love them?

Be a Size You,

Tiffany

In One Week, You Can Begin To Change Your Life

 

That sounds like a big over promise, doesn’t it?

In just one week?  Notice that I didn’t say that in one week, you will:

*Reach your goals

*Lose all the weight

*Get six pack abs

*Solve all your problems

But, in one week, you can begin the journey.  To begin the process to work on the things that you know, deep inside, you need to work on.

I have a couple of questions for you.

  1. What is the current problem you are facing in your Be a Size You journey? 
  2. How will you feel once that problem is solved?

One of the biggest concerns I hear from my sister friends who are working on their journeys is that they feel so completely overwhelmed by the changes that have to be made, even though they know they need to happen.

They feel like a failure when they can’t complete a sixty day fitness plan (or even a 30 day plan!) and they get stuck in this self-defeating cycle of quit and start again.

I want to change that for you.

What if, in one week, you can begin to work on that problem you are facing in your Be a Size You journey.  Whether it be the internal struggles and the external that leaves you feeling bewildered and frustrated and desire for change, one week is truly all you need to begin that process.

Beginning on October 9th, I will be launching my Clean Week groups.  They will happen once a month, in the beginning of the month.  

They will run for 7 days only.

They will include 30 minute workouts that anyone can do. I promise, even the most beginner of fitness levels can do this.

There will be simple food guides and recipes so you and your whole family can do this and support each other.

There will be superfoods to make nutrition even more brainless for you. 

Continuous support and encouragement from me and fellow sister friends who are doing this with you. You won’t be alone!

Scripture and hope because I truly believe God cares about you and your health.  Because I want these one week gatherings to be a place where we tackle our giants head on, where we are uplifted and motivated, and spurred on to love one another and do good.  

For a group like this, you can do the workouts for FREE.

But, if you are truly wanting to maximize your efforts, and expedite your results, $30 is all you need for your brainless nutrition.  Because it is not enough to just move our bodies.

We must nourish them.  We must put good things inside.  We must take the week seriously if we are really going to tackle that goliath in our Be a Size You journey.

Got questions about my Clean week (which really, I feel like it should be called Freedom week….because that is what we are seeking! Freedom from our giant problems!)

Feel free to shoot me a message over at coachtiffanyharper@gmail.com. I would love to chat with you and learn more about your goals and how I can serve you!

Be a Size You,

Tiffany

Big Weekend Coming up and Some Jane Goodies

Happy Thursday!!! I am so excited that the weekend is almost here!  Today, I am prepping some snack food for our College Football viewing, as well as helping Madi out at her Swim a thon that will be taking place Saturday.  This is her swim team’s biggest fundraiser of the year and all the money they raise will go towards the needs of the team and swimmers and to host meets, etc.  Madi is loving her time on the swim team.  She has stated that she would love to compete at the Olympics when they are in LA in 2028 so here we go!!!  So proud of this chick!

I have something fun to share with y’all.  It is no secret that I enjoy shopping and sharing with you guys the cutest clothes that I find on the interwebs. There are so many amazing women who own the cutest boutiques, and I am constantly in heaven, much to my husband’s horror.  He hides the wallet!

I also love a really good deal and if you have never heard of Jane.com, allow me to introduce you! I was introduced to this company last year by my sweet friend, after I asked her  about a really cute shirt she was wearing in a video. She told me that she practically gets most of her clothes from there.  I didn’t know what to expect, and I was hesitant at first because there are a lot of clothing websites on Facebook and Instagram that aren’t legit and will scam you of your money (and they aren’t even located in the US and the shipping takes forever, if it even arrives at all.)

But I have been so happy with Jane.  A lot of my favorite pieces in my closet have come from this store and I love that they partner with boutiques and small businesses and they are at a great price point!

Dress  and booties from Jane.com

Here are some pieces I am eyeing right now on their site:


Ankle Booties / 3 Colors

 

Ruffle Sleeve Babydoll Top

Slide Loafers with Tassel / 6-11!


Fall Floral Swing Dress!

They even have stuff for your home and your children!


Striped Turkish Hand Towels


Oversized Farmhouse Style Vinyl Designs


Personalized Hoodie Sets / 0-24 Months

(basically, I need a cute little girl to dress up!)

There are a ton of great items on this site. And a lot of these items that are shown (among others) are only available for a short period of time. It is essentially a deal site where you can buy really cute clothes, accessories, home goods, and more at a special deal and then once the time is up, that’s it! And things do sell out often on this site, so if you see something you LOVE, don’t hesitate to grab it.

You can also download the app as well, but take it from  me, that is really dangerous. LOL!

I hope you will check them out!  I would love to hear what you think.  Expect me to share a lot of deals on my facebook and Instagram when I come upon them because I truly do love this site!

Be  a Size You,

Tiffany

That being said, I only share what I truly love and believe that others would benefit from. I will always share my honest opinion on products, regardless of whether I was paid or not.

Friday Favorites Roundup

Y’all, this is NOT my outfit for today. This was  back around LAST FALL/WINTER.  It is still around eighty degrees in Southern California and the weather doesn’t look to be dropping anytime soon. Which makes this Fall loving gal really sad.

Come on, California! Get with it!

In the meantime, I am dreaming of sweaters, booties, warm and cozy things for your home, and soups to make at home.

First, who watched last week’s UCLA game against Texas A&M? I thought for sure I would have to comfort my Bruin loving husband because it did not look good. That comeback game was one for the books because even I was cheering (and I am a USC fan!!!)  I love games like that!! So good!

Now for my favorites for this week.

Since Fall is slowly happening, and for some of you, the transition into cooler weather is already happening in your area, I have been browsing some of my favorite sites for pretty Fall worthy items to add to my wardrobe.  I am always on the lookout for sweaters, duster cardigans, jeans, and booties, as well as some accessories.  A lot of these are on sale as well, so if you are able, snag a few of the items you have been eying before the price goes up again!

When it comes to my home, I love switching out pillows to match the seasons.  One of my favorite shops happens to be Linen and Ivory. They have such cute merchandise so if you are looking for something festive, you definitely should check this small business out.
I love this pillow
And this one
Name that movie!!!  It is one of my favorites for Halloween. My sisters and I have always wanted to dress up as the Sanderson Sisters for Halloween. I call dibs on Winifred Sanderson.
There are a ton of beautiful pieces, so please go check them out!!!  I have these two Pillow covers currently in my home:
And Candles? Yes, we need fall scented candles in our home! Pronto!
My favorite candle scent is Marshmallow Fireside from Bath and Body Works. You guys. YAAAASSSS!
Bath and Body Works is having a special right now on these candles (regularly $24.50) but you get them for $12.50 each when you buy 2 or more.  Do it. I always stock up on my favorite scents when the three wick candles go on sale. I love having them burn in my home, especially when the weather cools down and when I am reading….or just anytime really. I don’t need permission to light a candle!
I am also dreaming of delicious soups to make during Fall/Winter months that are relatively easy, yet delicious and healthy and satisfying.  That is super important to me.
Here are some soup recipes that have caught my eye recently and I am going to make in the coming weeks:
That is all I have for today.  What are you loving this week?  If you don’t already, follow me on Insta to see what I am up to daily!
Be a Size You,
Tiffany

#CTCMOMMYSTRONG

Don’t Show Off-Just Show Up tank from Cross Training Couture

I have entered a new season of parenting, and to be honest, while I was a little nervous…I wasn’t exactly terrified of the pre-teens.

I have been blessed with a daughter who is a true joy.  She is definitely coming into her own when it comes to her growing into who she is. And with every sweet precious girl, a little bit of sass is apparent (she is her mother’s daughter!)

But I can’t complain about her.  When she was a precious babe, I would hear from so many well meaning parents who would tell me to just wait until she became a teenager. Just wait. Then I would want to pull my hair out. Then I would agonize over having a daughter.

But, and perhaps this is me being naïve, I don’t think we are in for hard years with our daughter.  Our precious Madi.  I don’t mean that we are going to go through life bump free. But I don’t think that when she becomes a teenager, life will suddenly become terrible with her.

Being the momma of a daughter is special.  Some of us are blessed to have more than one daughter.  My daddy had three girls who looked up to him and thought the world of him. Our Daddy was our first knight in shining armor. He was our hero.  Madi looks at her daddy and sees a man who loves her unconditionally. The bar is set really high for the special young man who will one day love our daughter and marry her. I am praying for him specifically. I can’t wait for that young man to one day join our family.

But for now, our daughter is ours.  She is being raised in our household.  We are striving to teach her His word. To cling to what is good. To love others and to serve God with her whole heart and mind and body.

Madi is entering a stage and age groups where the need for attention is real. Showing off, being front and center, being noticed, wanting to be valued…those are real messages that will be vying for my daughter’s attention and for her heart.

So, as her momma, who understands the pull of the world and whose own heart has been pulled and affected, I want her to cling to this:

“That according to the riches of his glory He may grant you to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith-that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.” Ephesians 3:16-19 ESV

I want her to know who she is and to WHO she belongs to.

My daughter is also an athlete. The shirt she is wearing tonight says “Don’t show off-Just Show Up.”

In the fitness world, it is easy to see how that applies.  We show up each day for our workouts.  We don’t show off our awesome muscles just because we want to look good. If it is a part of our life, we do it daily, regardless.

As we walk it out with Jesus, we need to show up daily.  Christianity is not a cool club to belong to.  My daughter will soon see from some of those who don’t share her beliefs that being a Christ follower isn’t so easy.  It takes showing up.

I want my daughter ultimately to realize that she doesn’t need to show off in order to gain anyone’s love or approval.  With so many things that will be vying for her attention and heart, I want her to instead focus on showing up in the things that matter.

*Show up in love and compassion for her friends that are in need of it, even if she is without words.

*Show up each day in His word, so that she may be empowered by His Holy Spirit and to be guided by Him when she faces decisions she is unsure about.

*Show up in offering grace, even when others withhold it, for God did not withhold His own son from us.

*Show up daily by offering hope found only in Jesus.

*Show up daily as a friend. As a Daughter. As a princess of the King.

She doesn’t need to compete or show off in order to prove how valuable she is. God loves my precious daughter.  He loves her more than I do.  He wants good for her, He wants to give good gifts to her more than I do.

My job is not to make her life pleasurable and happy. Happy is a by-product.  My job as her mother is to raise her to walk with the King and to love Him with her whole heart, mind and soul. That will take the rest of her life, and she will most definitely falter some moments. But grace upon grace and the willingness to run towards Him even in failure, she will learn and grow to fall more in love with Him and fulfill His will.

I can’t wait to see what God does in the life of my beautiful daughter.

Be a Size You,

Tiffany

 

Introducing Daily Sunshine-The Nutrition Game Changer for Your Kids

Raise your hands if your kids are PERFECT and eat all of their fruits and veggies without complaining!!!

Anyone?

There is probably one, maybe two people who could raise their hand (honestly…you can’t fool us!) because let’s face it: Kids can be picky.

We do our best to introduce them to good foods that we know are tasty and really good for their growing bodies, but it does take time for them to accept it.  Green colored foods just don’t look as appetizing as beige or candy colored.

I know. I hear you. I am right there with you!

I get asked regularly if Shakeology is good for kids. The short answer is yes, but we also say that it really depends on the kid AND their needs.  One big concern many parents have is that Shakeology, although made with gluten free ingredients, it is not certified gluten free and they were concerned about other possible allergen and sensitivities. In short, we are willing to give the best to our kids!!!!!!  Maybe not to ourselves, but to our kids, we will not spare giving them what they need.

Welcome Daily Sunshine.

Daily Sunshine was specifically created with the nutritional needs of kids in mind. It was made for picky kids and for pickier parents.  It has the nutrition that our kids need to help support their constantly growing bodies. As parents, this is important to us.  If you have a child who struggles with eating their veggies, then you can be sure their bodies are not getting what they need, so this is FOR YOUR CHILD!

Daily Sunshine comes in two flavors: Chocolate and Strawberry Banana. Each flavor is made with organic fruits and vegetables, organic pea protein, and healthy fats, and has 3 grams of fiber, probiotics, Vitamins C& E, calcium, and vitamin D.  I love that Daily Sunshine is soy-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, and non- GMO, and it contains no artificial flavors, sweeteners, or preservatives.

How do I make Daily Sunshine?

It is so easy! All you need is 1 scoop or packet of your choice flavor and 8 oz of water (or your choice milk if you would like to boost the calorie intake a bit, which with water is 120 calories). It is a high quality snack for your kids and guess what….for you too!!!!

I will advise that this is NOT a meal replacement.  For children and their growing bodies, good quality calories count right now, as they are still growing. Unless your child is under the care of their pediatrician and need to be on a special diet or calorie cutting due to health issues associated with their weight, simply treat Daily Sunshine as a highly nutritious snack.

Here is a great video about Daily Sunshine from the creator, Isabelle Daikler:

My kids also tested for themselves.  I mixed it up for them: Madi drank Strawberry Banana and Sean drank Chocolate.  I only mixed it with water.  While they were doing their homework, I asked them to taste test my new snack option that I had for them.  These are their initial reactions.

*Disclosure: Sean initially said he liked Chocolate, but after he drank it a little more, he did comment that he would like his made next time with milk.  Just so you know! That is his honest opinion.  Today, he just asked for Daily Sunshine for a snack with his homework, which means he does like it and I am happy to make it for him!

What is the difference between Daily Sunshine and Shakeology?

Daily Sunshine provides key nutrients in a simple yet healthy formula designed for young, growing bodies.  Shakeology focuses on providing an array of exotic superfoods, adaptogens, prebiotics, digestive enzymes, and other important nutrients for adult bodies.  While they both have unique ingredients, Daily Sunshine and Shakeology contain some overlapping essential ingredients, but at different levels to suit nutritional needs of kids and adults.

Can I drink both Daily Sunshine and Shakeology?

Yes!!  If you are already consuming Shakeology as part of your nutrition plan, simply use Daily Sunshine as a really simple yet nutritious snack in between meals.

You can order Daily Sunshine here, Try a sampler pack here, and get a Daily Shaker cup here!

Of course, if you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to let me know! I would love to share more with you and help you in any way possible.

Let’s Help Those in Texas

Photo by Dailyreadlist.com

Heartbreaking, isn’t it? I don’t even think those words adequately describe the devastation we are all seeing on our television screens and social media pages.

The loss that those in Texas and in the path of Harvey has experienced is unbelievable. For those of us watching from the sidelines, I am sure you feel as helpless as I do. Because we all want to help in some way.

If you haven’t been privy to any specific information regarding the devastation and the numbers, here are the details (via)

*39 Lives have been lost so far, and more than 1 Million people have had to evacuate their homes.

*More than 20 Trillion gallons of rain fell across Texas and Louisiana.  

*125 Billion needed in Federal relief money for the State. Texas Governor Greg Abbot said that his state will need relief money “far in excess” of that total. Can you imagine?!!

*80% of Texans don’t have flood insurance.

*185,145 homes estimated to be damaged or destroyed by Harvey.

*364,000 people have reportedly registered for assistance with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

*42,399 people in shelters, according to the Texas Governor.

I didn’t even give you the whole list. Be sure to check out the source linked above for more details.

You guys.  This is mind blowing. For those of us who want to do something, know that whether you are able to give a little or a lot, any amount will help.

Because there are evil people who will take advantage of the generosity of others in order to benefit themselves, if you are looking to give in any way, here are some legitimate organizations that are actually contributing to the needs of those in Texas and surrounding areas. They have need. Thieves do not. It is okay to take some time to do research so that you can have confidence that your donation will go to relief and recovery efforts.

*Charity Navigator: A non profit site that is designed to help you find legitimate organizations that are providing relief efforts. You can also see information on how much they give for and total percentages of proceeds given. So if you need some time to research before you choose, go there first.

*JJ Watt Houston Flood Relief Fund: This one is getting a lot of attention on the media and social media thanks to Houston Texans Defensive End JJ Watt.  Because of the media attention, there will definitely be a demand for accountability and honesty about where all donations are going.

*Houston SPCA: For animals that had to be left behind or got lost or are in danger due to the floods. Because of space limitations in shelters and even hotels that are providing relief, many pets weren’t able to accompany their owners.  So if you are an animal lover and want to help in any way, they are local and a great resource!

Also, If you are concerned and want to help, but don’t have the financial means to or you want to give something tangible, many organizations are asking for clothes, underwear, sanitary items, and more. Imagine having to leave your home with only the clothes on your back or in a small bag and losing everything. Think about all that we may take for granted and go through your closet for gently used items (except underwear) or even brand new items that you know can be used by men, women and children who are without.

Together, whether with a little or a lot, we can do much for our friends in Texas.

With so much animosity and hatred and anger in our country right now, one thing this tragedy has shown us is that when disaster strikes, we can come together and love each other and do good.

Let’s be the good. Let’s be the hands and feet of Jesus.

Be a Size You,

Tiffany

 

Coach of the Week: Michelle Bradley

Meet Team Be a Size You Coach of the Week: My friend Michelle Bradley.

She and I go back a long time.  I met her at church after I competed in a local pageant with one of her best friends and she just walked up to me and said,

“Didn’t you compete in the Miss Diamond Bar pageant with Kelly? I was there. Hi, I’m her friend, Michelle.”

And the three of us became besties!  No joke!  Some of my favorite memories in my twenties have the three of us in them because we loved Jesus and we were a little nuts. Ha!!  Oh, and Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake’s breakup broke our hearts but that didn’t stop us from busting out all the songs full blast in either Michelle’s VW Jetta or my Silver Mustang or Kelly’s Civic (We are basic white girls. hahahaha!)

Michelle joined my team two years ago, and honestly, this was after she told me no several times prior.  She just didn’t think she had what it took to be an online health coach.  And to be fair, most people have those objections.

So when she finally decided to jump on board, I was so excited.

She is the epitome of someone who fights for her Why.

Michelle’s Mom died of Breast Cancer when she was a senior in high school. Imagine that. For those of you who have lost a parent, either recently or at a very young age, it is traumatizing and heart breaking.  You never get over it, but you learn to live without a person daily in your life.  That is so hard.

Michelle fights for her health daily.  She doubts herself often, which is where I come in and tell her to knock that off. That she can do this. That she is worth the effort. That people that follow her do gain incredible value from her story telling and from her sharing her heart with them.

When she gives it her all, she kills it.

The last several week, she has been following an intense endurance program to the T. The workouts and the nutrition plan. She hasn’t cheated.  She hasn’t given up on herself. She is fighting daily because her WHY is bigger than this whole fitness thing is.

She wants to be around as long as she can, Lord willing, for her kids. She wants to prevent disease, which runs in her family, as much as she can so prayerfully she can spare her children from experiencing the heartbreak of losing their mama like she did.  She knows that she cannot keep it from happening if it will happen, but she refuses to allow “genetics” dictate her future.

So she pushes play. And she keeps fighting.  She chooses to change her life one day at a time.  She fights for those kids. For her husband.

That is a Coach. That is what we do.

Michelle is also incredibly loyal and is always in your corner. You want a true cheerleader, confidant, friend, supporter? Michelle is that woman you want on your team.  She is sensitive and will hear your concerns, and also love you with the truth.  I am so thankful that she is on my team, that we get to do this business of making women better, healthier, live longer, and fight for their families.

If you don’t already, be sure to follow Michelle on Social Media: @michellebradly05 .  Be inspired by her and go join the movement.

Congratulations Michelle! You deserve this!

Be a Size You,

Tiffany Harper

Friday Favorites Roundup: Game Day Food!

 

This photo has nothing to do with College game day or tailgating…but isn’t Madi so precious?

Okay people, did you know that Saturday, September 2nd is National Tailgating Day?

Yes. Yes it really is. And it is also National College Colors Day. But really, the only thing any of us can think about, at least those of us who LOVE college football, is that it is back and we are so ready to eat our way through the game day season!!!!

Personally, my family watches more college football than NFL. But I think this post will apply to any sport, because today we are talking about Game Day food!

My favorite subject.

I am rounding out several of my favorite recipes from my favorite food bloggers so you can head to the grocery story today and make some goodies for your families.

Before I go on, if you need a College Football Game schedule because (for some crazy reason!) you don’t already have it printed out, Here you go.  Some games kicked off Thursday.

Can you tell I am excited!!!!

Okay, now for the food.  These are my favorite items to have on hand. I basically like to follow a couple of rules:

*Have some protein

*Veggies

*Dips/sauces/condiments

*Plenty of beverages

*Chips (A variety. My hubby will not touch gluten free chips. He wants Lay’s. I tried)

*Easy to whip appetizers that are pop in your mouth friendly and require not a whole lot of effort.

For those of you who will be tailgating, you probably have your own rules that you like to add because you will normally be somewhere for several hours.

Here are some ideas for you to check out:

*Easy Chicken Wings from Balanced Bites

* Guacamole (No recipe needed although this one is great from Balanced Bites)

*Deviled Eggs by Primal Palate

*Bacon Wrapped Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Jalapenos by PaleOMG

* Slow Cooker Babacoa by Fed and Fit ( I made the Barbacoa this past week and it was a huge success!! Instead of making Jicama tacos though, I chose to use Almond Flour Tortillas from Siete Foods . Still incredibly delicious!!!)

*Oven Fries by Balanced Bites

*Buffalo Chicken Dip by Living Loving Paleo

*Paleo Ranch Dressing by Nom Nom Paleo  (Or grab some yummy dressings from Tessemae’s or Primal Kitchen.

And plenty of your favorite Veggies, Chips (I prefer Kettle Chips Jalapeno flavor or Siete Foods Lime flavored Tortilla chips.

I also have plenty of water and other drinks on hand for the family because we don’t just root for our team, we watch all the dang games that day.  We LOVE College Football!

There you have it. It is a small list, but if you are having a gathering at home for your family or even a few people, this should be good. If you don’t want to cook it all, and who does, have your friend bring some over!  Share the load.

I want to see your game day photos!

Who are you all rooting for? Our house is a  house divided.  USC vs UCLA over here in the Harper household!!! Let’s go Trojans! Fight on!

Be a Size You,

Tiffany
