Because we just attended a wedding…and because that makes me reminisce on my own wedding day ten years ago (geesh, that decade just flew by), today’s post is about a gift we received ten years ago that was most definitely our best kitchen investment EVER. (Not to say that a lot of other kitchen items are somehow not as good. But these have turned out to be simply indispensable in so many different ways.)
I am slowly feeling better. I started feeling sick Wednesday so four days is long enough for me to be sick. Not that I have any say in how long a cold stays in my system but you know what I mean. I’m done with it. I’ve pretty much laid low and stayed near the house except for the few “emergency” outings I needed to take. Meanwhile, during my resting periods I’ve been reading and looking things up on the Googles. I’ve read several of my new raw food books and I fear that I’m not quite as…
So I’ve been eating healthy for over a week. I hesitate to label what I’m doing for fear of messing it up but I will call it the semi vegan vegetarian raw food diet. There, that’s a nice name, isn’t it? What I’m doing is avoiding meat of all kinds: chicken, beef, lamb, fish, etc. I’m also TRYING to avoid refined sugar and diet sugars. I try to use Stevia, turbinado, agave,…
AND THEREFORE: I have figured out why my bum looks like tapioca.
I often wonder why I’m not as healthy as I’d like to be; and after some reflection, what I really end up wanting to know is: Why is pizza so demanding? Why does it have to be the center of attention ALL THE TIME?
An occasional foray Into the kitchen everyday Has led to many nightly dinners Of a meal made for winners.
Dear peanut butter jelly, just as night begins to fall,
The children start to call,
“Woe is me. I’m hungry!”
And now, my…
I always wondered, "is it true that you are what you eat?" Well, this may be good news for some of you and bad news for the rest, but yes, it is true. When we are talking about your skin and your face in particular, if you want a beautiful complexion and healthy skin, you need to include fruits and vegetables, protein, good fats and whole grains in your daily… Continue

As I have been learning more about GMO's or Genetically Modified Organisms, I have really felt compelled to share this information with all of you. Sadly, it is another scary topic, but one that I feel is really important if we are concerned with living our best life and taking care of our families!
Did you know since 1996 Americans have been eating… Continue

I'm throwing out an EAT CLEAN challenge for those who want to accept! It's pretty simple really, just check out the details and let me know if you want to participate. It's not a huge commitment - just one night a week!
I'm not a hard-core eat cleaner, I'd be in far better shape if I were, trust me! But I do want to hold myself accountable for what I eat and teach myself, again, what whole, clean foods…
Okay, I get it - I've read the newspaper, and my mom has described (in lurid detail) the more disgusting scenes in Food, Inc. Our eating habits are terrible and I want my family to be healthier. Unfortunately, I'm also coping with busy schedules, picky teens, and a bank account that doesn't allow me to indulge in…Continue

So here goes my blogging expedition, ill combine bad grammer with terrible typing, some raw and uncut video, some ranting and raving and alot of healthy questions.
I need an outlet so I may not get time to read as much as I expell my darker side into this internet funnel and allow my light side to relax and soak up the company or peace. So between a few updates and some ranting blogs i may not type much, I enjoy editing video more and leaving comments on things i wonder… Continue

Hey everyone! It has been wayyyy too long since I have posted anything.
I've had busy 2 weeks. Between a wedding, having family in town, and the 3rd cord for my laptop dying (That could be a whole other post!) I've
been slacking on my blogging duties. So here is an update on whats been going on.
Last week I discovered that the baby making Gods didn't have it in the stars for me to get pregnant this month. I am disappointed, to say the least. I really… Continue
Just a quick update, since I'm currently on throw-up watch. Unfortunately it's not mine. Bryson has a killer cough that has been making him ill all morning. So, not sure I'm knocked up, but I'm sure eating like it. Yesterday I made…
