30 Days of Yoga and Green Smoothies

For January I made 2 really big (for me) resolutions - the first is that I was going to drink a green smoothie everyday without exception, and the second was that I signed up for 30 days of Yoga Camp with Adrienne. One of my biggest hurdles in life is undoubtedly consistency. In the children's story of the tortoise and ...

Lemon Mint Spa Water

The combination of lemon and mint is incredibly refreshing, especially on a hot day. We've been making pitcher after pitcher of this spa water all summer long. But... even though the weather has been cooling a bit, we're still making it all the time. It took me awhile, but I finally wrote down the measurements for what we've been using. ...

Mason Jar Salads 101

Mason Jar Salads have completely changed the way we eat because it's finally convenient to get more veggies in every single day! I'll have to say, I'm really grateful for my husband who rarely forgets to eat a meal. I've been terrible over the last few years often forgetting to eat (which weirdly is easy to do when you're really ...

Make Your Own Freezer Smoothie Packs

With every year that goes by, I'm becoming a bigger fan of having things prepared ahead! I've been delving into all areas of making things easier in the kitchen, from slow cooker recipes to mason jar salads - and now on to smoothie packs for the freezer! We have a pretty good routine for Monday - Thursday every week (my ...

Simple Resolutions for the New Year

I don't know how the years fly by so fast, but here we are at the end of another one! So I've been setting some goals and resolutions I'd like to see happen this year! One thing that I'd love to do is re-create some of my favorite recipes with a healthier twist - like Orange Chicken or Sweet Potato ...

From Farm to Table

I've always had an interest in where my food comes from, and I think it comes from having a garden my whole life! Everywhere we lived when I was a kid, my parents put in a garden even if it was just a small patch. Once you've had fresh garden produce, it's hard to go back - nothing tastes as ...

Healthy Eating While Traveling

Healthy eating when you're traveling can be really difficult, depending on where you're going. Last fall, we did some hiking and sight seeing through the Canadian Rockies, and I found the food situation to be challenging at times. I ended up going with whatever was available, especially in the more remote locations, and I came home pretty sick (and determined ...

Food Prep 101

Preparing food ahead of time goes against my grain, I just can't seem to commit to 4 days in a row of the same salad - or whatever it might be! I love winging it day by day, and just going with whatever I'm craving - sounds good right? Well... in theory anyways - what actually happens is more like ...

Springtime Strawberry Spa Water

Is spa water worth the trouble... as it turns out, yes it is! I've never taken the time to find out what the fuss was about until last week when I had 4 strawberries left alone in their big empty carton. As I pondered what I might do with just a couple of berries, I decided to make some spa ...
