Latest Happenings:

In last week’s Small Bites by Jessica newsletter, I shared a few of my favorite things, including the inclusion of my Apple Cinnamon Cake in Women’s Running Magazine and the release of the Fertility Foods Cookbook, the passion project of two of my colleagues and friends, Liz and Sara. See what else I am loving lately and share your recent food finds and recipes that you love!

Also, in case you missed it, I shared a photo of what I made during meal prep Saturday this week. There was more I could have done, but I didn’t have enough time, so this will at least get us through breakfast for the week, some school lunches, and dinner tonight (see what’s on the menu below). Did you get any meal prep done this weekend? Share with me in the comments below or on my FB and IG posts!
