Fit Foodie: Define: Rut

 Rut:  “a habit or pattern of behavior that has become dull and unproductive but is hard to change.” ~ Google.com

I have not been that much of a FIT Foodie lately.  It’s been much more of a Moodie Foodie.  I’m still using all of the healthier combinations but I’m in a cooking rut.  I haven’t felt very inspired lately.  Thinking it has a lot to do with the holiday added scheduling on top of everything else that goes on around here.  At least I have an awesome hubby that has taken over a lot of the cooking from the menu planning.  Here were some of the awesomeness we’ve had lately including what we brought to friends’ house for Thanksgiving!
