Meet the Chick


I’m broke.

The Broke Chick

I’d also like to lose weight. Have you ever noticed while you’re cruising around on the internet, looking for diet tips and low-cal, healthy recipes the costs of the ingredients sky-rockets way out of a normal person’s price range? You’re not alone. I’m a stay-at-home mom of three great kiddos. Our family is surviving on a single income. I tell you, I do not have extra cash to spend on fancy-schmancy ingredients and spinach juice and all that jazz.

In our house, we plan our grocery shopping based on a two-week menu that we personally plan to fit within our grocery budget. There’s not a lot of breathing room. I need simple, low-cal, healthy meals that I can prepare that can be tailored to keep me thin, and provide plenty of nutrtion for my family… all on a shoe-string budget.

Currently as I begin this food blog I’m weighing in at 170 pounds. My goal weight is a healthy 140 pounds for my 5’7 frame.

Please! Join me as I share the struggles and triumphs of losing weight and eating great with as little money invested as possible.


When I started this blog in 2010, I had three children and a few pounds to lose.

Then I had THREE MORE CHILDREN. And I still have a few pounds to lose. It’s funny how life throws curve-balls at our curves.

I’d love for you to visit us at to see how we’re managing our six children and our goals for a healthier lifestyle.
