Beat Sugar Cravings with "Real" Food

I have to start of by saying that, no matter how much I pretended, Turkey and Cheese roll-ups were no substitute for sweet and sugary fruit snacks. But, they did get the job done. That’s kind of how I approached the whole first week of my “no junk food”…
I use "real" food to beat my sugar cravings and share a sample daily meal plan to show you what I did.

It’s been too long since we last “chatted!” Unfortunately for me, my numerous drafts in progress were all lost recently due to a hacking incident. It really sucks and as a writer, I’m ashamed of myself for not having backup copies somewhere. But since I…
It can be tricky baking a dish with gluten free pasta in it, but I've figured out how to make it not turn out mushy. And, I share my secret here.

21 Day Fix Paleo Recipe #21DayFix #Paleo #Cooking

I’ve been on a gluten free diet for nearly four years. At the time, I thought it was the end of my life. No more Oreos? Twinkies? Bread that doesn’t taste like something you seal your driveway with? (Please note that I’ve never said I was mature for an…

Looking to improve your own life somehow? It's simple. Help someone else improve theirs. :-) So ask yourself, "how can I add value to someone's life today?"

Happy Friday!

It took a while to get it through my pretty thick skull, but I finally realized that healthy eating doesn’t have to be complex or expensive. Take the meal in my picture above. It’s a simple chicken breast filet, a small zucchini squash, and a carrot. I…

Good-Bye, Junk Food #HealthyEating

I’ve kind of reached the end of my rope with myself. I think we all get there at some point, right? We do great for a while, then our bad habits come back bigger and badder than they were before. My biggest, baddest addiction is junk food. Cookies, candy,…

My gardening skills are so heinous that I could kill a fake plant if you leave it with me long enough. That's why I'm so proud of this little guy! I grew him from a clipping of my other basil plant that I'm trying (and failing) to grow.

I think Sherlock here is ready to move to a bigger pot. (I had to name him. It's another effort to not let him whither and die.) :-)

Size doesn’t matter Call me a conspiracy nut if you will, but I think the clothing and “dieting” industries have a pact. My in-laws were in the country for a few weeks recently, and one thing they like to do while here is shop (because prices are much…
Today I dish about clothing size conspiracies, mood improvement, and unplugging!

My 40th gasp birthday is in 3 months and 2 days. (Can someone please tell me where the time went? How am I going to be 40?) While I’m pretty comfortable with myself (as we ALL should be, no matter where we are in our health journeys) I’d like to be in…
