• The time is always right to do what is right - MLK. Words I try to live by! If you visit Memphis, go by the Lorraine Motel. So many emotions just knowing this is where he took his last steps.
  • I thank God for my family.  Out here breaking generational curses and sharing black love. There was a time when I thought being a mom was negative because I watched so many in my family, including my mom, struggle raising kids on their own. Motherhood is a struggle but the best and loving kind of struggle.

  • Somebody’s been drinking their water and minding their business 😆. My first blog post of 2020 is up! This is the year I say YES to myself more! I’m excited about it.  I also forgot I got Fendi bag on Black Friday at a consignment store because I tucked it away before Mr started asking questions! Pretty much brand new for a small fraction of the price 🙌🏾. My dress/jacket is also on sale at @recessionistasclose! Details are on the blog. Link in profile. 📷 @kaynjames
  • Y’all remember this? I saw that meme about what you call @diddy and you can tell someone’s age. Well I call him Puff. Happy Friday!  Fun fact: Peyton got some moves.  She can really dance. I don’t own the rights to this music. #puffdaddy
  • “I used to live downtown, 129th St” 🎶  My old heads know about this. That’s exactly what i look like.  Bonus points of you can tell me who or what song it’s from.  This has been my uniform (outside of my @supermomculture hoodie) over the holiday break +/- the hat. Trying to get my style mojo back for 2020! Shedding a few lbs will definitely get me inspired.

  • *This pic is from Feb 19’* Get knocked down 9 times, get up 10 - Card B. I’m looking more like my before pic but I know it’s possible because I’ve done it before.  Last year was devastating for me and I ate and drank all my emotions.  I’m back at it again.  Click the link in my bio to see what helped me achieve these results.
  • Even though my voice is gone (I’m sure Mr & the girls are happy about that 😒), I’m excited for my first speaking engagement of the year for @bcollectivemag #belevated conference this month! I’ll be giving all the tea that has helped me to secure the brands. I’m so honored to be included in the line up!
  • I was holding on by a thread most of 2019. It may continue into 2020 but I’m holding on.  I thank God for keeping me. 
@supermomculture beanie is unavailable but new 🔥 drop coming in 2020!
  • Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas 🎄. Mr is missing but he’s still around 😂. To my defense, we took these before Thanksgiving and I planned to have another shoot with him but I was tired. Anywho... what y’all get?
  • Going to @chuckecheese as a kid was a big deal. #AD.  My girls feel the same way so I was happy to take them to the newly renovated @chuckecheese in Kennesaw, GA.  When we pulled up, I was like Okay Chuck E.! From the warm new look, fresh food options, tons of games made this a great evening for the kids, while mama got to chill.  If you’re in the Atlanta area go check out the Kennesaw location, you’ll be impressed with the updates. Check it out over the holiday break. Learn more about the new look on the blog.

Low Carb Turkey Sausage & Cauliflower Rice Skillet Recipe

March 22, 2017

This post is sponsored by Green Giant.  Thoughts and opinions are my own.

If you’ve been hanging around here for a while, you may have noticed my efforts to get fit and also feed my family nutritious meals.  Unfortunately, my kids don’t have the same goals as I do.  I have to get creative to find ways to get them to eat their vegetables. I’m also working hard to trim a few inches from my waistline by lowering my carbs.  I’ve finally found an easy solution for both issues!  Green Giant recently introduced a new line of frozen veggies, cauliflower rice at Walmart.  Game changer!

Green Giants line of riced cauliflower is 100% made with vegetables and is gluten free.  Riced veggies are low in calories and significantly less carbs than regular rice.  Perfect for me since I’m trying to limit my carbs.  I also get the benefits of eating more vegetables without feeling like I’m missing the rice.  I decided to make my family’s favorite meal and swap out the rice with Green Giant’s cauliflower and sweet potato riced veggie blend.


  • 1 Package (14 g) of smoked turkey sausage
  • 2 tsp of olive oil
  • 1 large red/yellow bell pepper
  • 2 tsp of minced garlic or 4 garlic cloves
  • 4 cups of broccoli (use steam in the bag for faster cooking)
  • 1 package of frozen Green Giants riced cauliflower and sweet potato blend
  • 1 cup of tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup of low sodium chicken broth or stock
  • 1/4 cup of reduced fat shredded colby-jack or cheddar cheese


  • Slice peppers and smoked sausage.
  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet on medium high and add sausage and garlic.
  • After about 3 to 4 minutes, flip sausage over to cook on the reverse side.
  • Add peppers, broccoli, tomato sauce, chicken broth, and stir.
  • Adjust heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes or until broccoli is tender.
  • Microwave Green Giants riced cauliflower and sweet potato blend according to the package.
  • Add Green Giants riced cauliflower and sweet potato blend to the skillet and stir.
  • Sprinkle in the cheese and serve.

In less than 30 minutes, you have a delicious and nutritious meal.  No need to add spices in this skillet because the flavors from the garlic, tomato sauce, and the chicken broth take care of that.

Not only is this one of my favorite recipes, Peyton and Harper love it as well.  Now that I’m using Green Giants riced cauliflower, I know they are getting more than enough vegetables.  I no longer have to feel guilty for getting seconds (or thirds) because this version is lower in calories and carbs.

Green Giants riced cauliflower veggies are a great way to “hide” veggies for the kids.  Next up on the menu is chicken cauliflower rice stir-fry and taco bowls.  Have you tried riced cauliflower before?  You can find Green Giant’s riced cauliflower line in the frozen vegetable section at Walmart.

    HONEY!!!!! Yes it is delicious. I do meal planning on Sundays for my weekly lunch and this has changed the game for me as well.

    If you like Cauliflower rice you must buy it fresh and put it in the food processor, my daughter loves it. I was NEVER a cauliflower eater, but now I eat is almost everyday. Stir fry with chicken, plain with a piece of salmon, in burritos…I could go on and on. I have slid my Jasmine rice to the back of the cabinet.

    When I got on the cauliflower rice kick, this was the one I tried 1st and I enjoyed it with a baked chicken breast. I have the medley one as well now in my freezer, so this post was right on time, because I have sauage as well, so I will be making this soon! Great post, Trina! We are on our way to eating healthier!
