7 Affordable Items for Super Bowl Sunday

You can go straight from TFA’s big bash in Washington, DC (or from tuning in via livestream, hint hint) to your Super Bowl party, and no one will mind you’re so full of Team TFA spirit since errbody will be rooting maniacally for somebody.

5 Tips for Adopting Healthy Eating Habits in the New Year

5 Tips for Adopting Healthy Eating Habits in the New Year

As of this writing, I have joyfully given and gratefully received, slept more than my fair share, and eaten home-cooked food in quantities I’d rather not disclose. While it’s been days since we rang in 2016, I have continued to eat in a way I aim to reserve only for actual holidays. For example, it’s only noon, and I have already eaten 1-2 pounds of leftover mashed potatoes, 6-7 gummy frogs, 1 plate of fish and chips, and approximately ¼ cup of grape Nerds.

Teach. Eat. Repeat. Recipe: Eggie Muffins

Recipe: Egg Muffins

Here’s one of our favorite weekday breakfast recipes: eggie muffins! They’re delicious fresh or warmed up in your school’s microwave. They’re also easy to eat when you’re on the go. Make a double batch of these babies because they freeze really well, a delicious, defrostable breakfast when you’re short on time!

What You’ll Need

  • 12 Eggs
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 cups  chopped veggies. We suggest onions, bell peppers, zucchini, roasted red peppers, spinach, garlic, or my mama’s favorite: mushrooms (JK, she hates them but is really trying).
