My favorite lunch is a salad. Not a wussy salad with veggies only and dressing on the side. I’m talking a salad loaded with veggies but also avocado and a nice , filling protein. YUM! But this week in Denver, we got snow. Cold, wet snow. So when it came time for lunch yesterday, I […]
We’re constantly told we need to eat healthy foods but do you wonder why. I don’t know about you, but I’m a person who is much more willing to do something if I know the reason behind it. Not only am I about to tell you why you should eat certain foods, but give you […]
You guys know I LOVE to do food/fitness challenges. It’s my competitive nature. I can’t compete against others or else I make enemies. Even my son doesn’t like to play games with me. I’m the only one who enjoys it when I win… Anyway, I think this is why I like food challenges so much. […]
“Isn’t there anyone who knows what Christmas is all about?” Charlie Brown shouted. He’d spent the day trying to answer this question. Lately I feel a bit like Charlie Brown.

Last year for Christmas we gave our family things they’d need for a family night. This included a game, a movie, popcorn, hot chocolate and these adorable coasters (for the hot chocolate, of course).

In my Christmas reading (okay let’s be honest. The”reading” I’m specifically referring to is me browsing Facebook while I wait for my son to get out of school), I’ve seen two different types of blog posts, written and rewritten by moms convinced they’re right. The subject: Elf on the Shelf.
Today when it was cold and I wanted to swing by a Starbucks for my fix, I realized I didn’t need their bad ingredients. I could make a delicious, warm pumpkin drink that didn’t make me feel like I had made a horrible choice like wearing shoulder pads.
A few weeks ago, my friend made some majorly delicious pumpkin soup. But I was sad when I saw the recipe and realized it included flour and diary. The soup is actually pretty healthy in its original version but if you are like me and swell up in your joints and gut if you eat […]
Every year we make place cards for Thanksgiving dinner. This year we were short on time so we made these adorable little pumpkins. They may be our cutest place cards yet and they only took a few minutes each!
Next time you go to the store, check the back on a bag of meatballs. All meatballs are made with bread crumbs but often also have soy, sugar and even corn syrup. Why must we defile a beautiful ball of meat this way? Because meatballs are an important part of life, I came up with […]
