Boy am I glad I decided to make this week a smoothie week! I can’t tell you how much I just love smoothies. There are so many varieties and combinations. And when all is said and done, you can feel good about what you’re putting in your body because you know what the ingredients are, and you watched it all come together in your own kitchen.
Most of the time, my smoothies are fruit and veggie-based. All those nutrients. All the good stuff our bodies need. But sometimes, I get this craving that just can’t be fulfilled with fruits and veggies. (more…)
I love smoothies. Smoothies are totally my thing. I received a Blendtec a couple of years ago and have been obsessed with making thick and icy sweet treats that are totally good for me ever since. Spinach mixed with my berries? Yes ma’am! PB Choco? Absolutely! Almond milk and cinnamon? I’m game! There isn’t a healthy smoothie I would really turn down. They’re all amazing in my book.
You know what I would turn down though? Getting a bajillion (more…)
As we phase out of holiday-related treats, I am in much need of foods that make me feel good. Food from the produce section. Food that doesn’t come from a box. Food that will make my body happy!
As I mentioned earlier, I am dedicating all of January to healthy eating. I am not the only one either! My good friend Amber over at Dessert Now, Dinner Later has taken on January with a Healthy Food, Healthy You theme. A bunch of her blogger friends, including yours truly, have gotten together to bring you healthy foods for the entire month. (more…)
The day has finally come that I can finally share this masterpiece with you all. Four of my blogging friends and I have come together with a common goal of helping others reach their physical and mental health goals. As we are now at the top of the new year, so many resolutions and goals revolve around getting healthy. It may be eating better, becoming more physically fit, or maybe just taking care of yourself mentally and emotionally.
Knowing that all of these things work together to help achieve total health and happiness, we decided (more…)
Okay, here’s the thing. I am 100% over sweet treats … well, for today. No but really, for the most part, I am so sick of the sugary stuff that makes me feel like crap. I didn’t do all that bad over the holidays, but I definitely could have done better. About two days before Christmas, I just couldn’t wait for it to be over and move on to the opposite of peppermint bark, cheese balls, and gingerbread men. I started thinking about all the healthy food I wanted to create, and then I got to planning. You guys, I am so excited for everything I have planned in January! (more…)
Eating healthy is one of the biggest goals people make for themselves all throughout the year. Generally January 1st is the big kickoff, but it seems like it’s always a constant thing people say. “Oh, I just need to eat healthier.” or “Man, I could really stand to eat more fruits and veggies.” It’s just a part of who we are. Always trying to eat better and getting on the Eat Healthy Bandwagon. The problem is that so many people think that eating healthy means they have to deprive themselves of some of their favorite foods. If I’m going to eat healthy, that means no more of my favorite ice cream. Let me tell you, that is so not the case. (more…)
Over the last couple of years around this time, I have seen a trend going around the internet. A trend that I have wanted to be a part of but usually forget about until about a week into the New Year. This year, I am totally on top of it, and I am jumping on the bandwagon. I am choosing a Word of the Year. It will be my theme word. One that I will be turning to throughout the year, I am sure.
Strength is my word for 2014. When I first started thinking about my theme word, I just knew right away (more…)
Where has the year gone? This has truly been one of the quickest years of my life. Between our attempts at trying to have a baby, moving into a new home at the end of the summer, sleeping just a few hours each night while trying to grow this blog and work full time outside of the home, and just living normal life, there has been a lot that has kept the time moving quickly.
I have to say that this year has been absolutely (more…)
