The latest happenings at Small Bites by Jessica, this week’s Link Love, and Menu Plan Monday!
Happy Monday! Hope you had a great weekend! We had a pretty low-key weekend, which was good since this week is going to be crazy busy for me!
In case you missed it, last week I shared Kaleigh’s guest post about gut health and the prebiotic and probiotic foods you need to eat to maintain a healthy gut. I followed it up on Sunday with my probiotic-rich recipe for Miso-Glazed Chicken Breasts. It’s a quick (30 minute) and easy recipe the whole family will enjoy, so be sure to check it out!
And if you haven’t already, be sure to take the Nutritioulicious Reader Survey! I’d love to know what you want to see and read more of here and how I can make Nutritioulicious your go-to place for family-friendly healthy recipes and nutrition information.
Feel free to email me directly if you have specific requests or personal meal planning and recipe development needs.
Have a great week!
