Sugar Free Me – Week 2

I was off my game this week. My headaches resurfaced on day 8, and I can't say I wasn't disappointed. After all this work and five days of freedom, it feels unfair. I promised to be honest with you, and here's the truth - I thought about giving up multiple times. I felt worse than... Continue Reading →

Sugar Free Me – Week 1

Let me start by saying that I can totally understand why a lot of people don't eat healthy - it's not that they don't want to, it's just so difficult and time-consuming, not to mention expensive. I made all of my meals and snacks for this detox because sugar is a sneaky sucker. It hides... Continue Reading →

On a roll!

I first came across foam rolling on Pinterest when I was looking for a way to relieve my sore muscles. Once a little pain sets in, it can put a HUGE damper on motivation, and it’s easy to forego workouts altogether. In one respect, soreness means you’re doing something right.

So, why the wait? Well, I... Continue Reading →

We chatted via email a bit and I learned that she wants to help people suffering from cancer, diabetes, and other illnesses live happier lives. She really wants to make a difference in our world...

Grab ’em and go

What do you grab when you’re in a hurry? If you’re like most people, it’s junk. I can remember walking to the corner store armed with a pocket full of change and a desire to check off everything on my list – Laffy Taffy, Hot Fries, Slim Jims, and Blow Pops. My 10-year-old self was... Continue Reading →

Smooth or crunchy?

It's the age old PB question, but it fits with almond butter too. I’m a smooth gal myself, and my mom likes crunchy. There’s no compromise here; it’s either one or the other. Fortunately, most companies have caught on. One of these, Barney Butter, has so many awesome flavors and unique combinations such as Vanilla +... Continue Reading →
