Healthy Eats and Casual Style...Keeping It Simple

More and more these days I'm finding myself just wanting to keep things simple. These Trader Joe products are quick, easy, delicious, and help me do just that.
Hubby and I split the package of enchiladas and have 1 enchilda each for lunch about once a week.  They are loaded with sauce and yummy filling.  We top with a little bit of light sour cream.
I'm hooked on the guacamole for sure!  
We have a little of it on something just about every day.
Turkey meatballs are another of our favorites.  We have these once or twice a week.  One way is just as spaghetti and meatballs.  A second way is cut the meatballs into tiny bits and place the pieces on a split apart toasted english muffin that has a little pizza sauce spread on top.  Then top the meatballs with a little low fat mozzarella, garlic powder, and basil, then heat in microwave till cheese melts.  Mmmmmmm.....
Next is riced cauliflower.  We probably only have this about once a month, but it's good as a rice substitute for a stir fry using lots of veggies and either a little bit of chicken or shrimp.
Simplicity is also finding it's way into my outfits.  Slip on a pair of comfy leopard loafers with a pair of boyfriend jeans, tee, and cardigan... and I'm happy. :)

A Fall Scarf In Olive And Cinnamon Print

 I thought this was a perfect scarf for the fall season and it matched my earrings and jacket so well.
I'm wearing just a basic dark gray tee with tan pants.  Wearing a simple base and then adding interest with the scarf, earrings, bracelet, and jacket is my favorite way of dressing.

Shortly after I thrifted these loafers in 2012 the side seam busted open.  These shoes were so soft and I loved them so much I decided to have them repaired.  It only cost me $6 and so for a total cost of about $11 for the price of the shoes and the repair I feel it was well worth it because I wear them often. 
gray tee $2.09
scarf $2.79
pants $? Gap
purse $7.99
jacket $3?

loafers $4.99 Honors
