I had a huge demand for a good list of healthy snacks! You ask, I answer!  When it comes to snacking, my opinion is that it’s best to stick to fruits and veggies. But that gets old sometimes! So here is a list of 25 of my favorites!  **Note – I didn’t make up ANY of these snacks. The links will take you to blogs that have the recipes posted!**   Bell...

Seriously. There is pumpkin EVERYWHERE. And it’s so delicious. BUT you are on a diet. You can’t possible eat any of that pumpkin stuff because it tastes SO good that it must be bad for you… right??? WRONG. Pumpkin is GOOD for you! On the 21 Day Fix, it satisfies one of those dreaded green containers. It’s true! You CAN have pumpkin pie this holiday season and NOT go off of your meal plan.  The best part about this recipe is that it’s literally takes about 3o seconds of prep and 5 minutes of cooking (in...

Okay friends, everyone knows that January is all about people starting goals to lose weight, right? I have done it a GAZILLION Times, not necessarily just during the new year, but something that has been a little more effective for me, is deciding to change some of my bad habits, into more healthy ones. So, instead of failing for the 90th time on a new diet, I make changes in my diet to be in better shape, and feel better overall! I am not saying that losing weight/dieting is always bad. It just always seems to back fire on me when I...

New Year’s Resolutions are so cliché and everyone hates them. Well. I don’t. Here’s the thing. I make goals all year. Every month I write down goals, and I work hard to achieve them. Sometimes I do, sometimes I don’t. But I LOVE the energy around January’s goals. I love the fresh start. I love the emphasis on gyms and businesses and healthy and new....

Since we moved into our fifth wheel, our only income has been my online income. (okay, okay, and a loan or two from the bank of mom. Thanks, mom 🙂 ) I am trying hard to create a career from home, but as anyone who has created a career online knows, it’s tough going. I’ve been working on this blog for a few years, and it’s just finally to the...

The 21 Day Fix is taking the health world by storm. It’s an amazing way to lose weight, get healthy, learn portion control, and revamp your diet.  One complaint I’ve heard over and over again is that it’s just not set up well for those who choose the vegan/vegetarian life style. And it’s true. With the original plan, the only protein options that are compatible with a vegetarian life are:  – eggs – egg whites  – yogurt  – greek yogurt  – Shakeology  –...

I totally remember the first time someone talked to me about Shakeology. I didn’t even LOOK at the nutrition information or any of the facts about it. All I saw was the price and I didn’t look any further. There was NO WAY it was worth that much right? I mean… $4/day? I could make green smoothies on my own for half that price! So I did. I shared lots of recipes on my blog of smoothies that I was making. I thought I was being SO healthy with my green smoothie. I mean, there was TWO CUPS of spinach in it. It had to be...

I’m sort of A.D.D. when it comes to fitness programs. I’m so thankful for on demand because it allows me to jump from one program to another without having to actually buy each program. I do three or four different programs each week, because I figure that as long as I’m getting in some exercise each day, I’m good. But if someone asks me what my favorite program is, and what got me the most results, hands down I’ll tell you the 21 Day Fix, every time. The portion controlled eating system has changed my life....
