Homemade Almond Milk and Paste!

Ok, I’m really proud of myself!  I had HEARD that making homemade almond milk was easy and that it was delicious and so good for you yadda yadda yadda but it just seemed to me that it would be messy and just not cost effective.  Well, I was wrong!  So what did it for me […]

Day 7 of my TLS 7 Day Detox + What comes next?

Yesterday was day 7 of my TLS 7 day detox and it was a little rocky-because it was day 7 and the end was RIGHT THERE.  I was ready for it to be done but admittedly-despite my mental desire for a latte I felt really great.  This is what detox is supposed to do!!!  Evenings […]

Day 5 and Day 6 of my TLS 7 Day Detox

Home stretch done!  Day 1, Day 2, Day 3 and Day 4 seem like distant memories. Really not much to say so here’s the skinny: Day 5 Breakfast: 2 Egg Muffins with Sriracha sauce AM Snack:  apple and Celery sticks Lunch:  I made a delicious salad from chopped belgian endive lettuce, celery, apples, leftover salad […]

Day 4 of my TLS 7 Day Detox

I’d be a liar if I said I wasn’t still aching for a large skim latte extra hot AND a glass of red wine but really and truly Day 4 delivered a day of sunshine and energy.  Huge improvement over how I felt on Day 1 and Day 2 and even Day 3 because my […]

Day 3 of TLS 7 Day Detox

You are what you eat and sometimes detoxing it out sucks!  The past few days have been a reminder that you WILL become what you eat and drink, and changing that is not always an easy endeavor.  After an awful day 2, I woke feeling much better which kept my morning bright.  I most certainly […]

Day 2 of TLS 7 Day Detox

After completing Day 1, with some ups and downs I next survived an extremely rocky Day 2 of my 7 day detox.  Yeah, it was rocky.  At times painful.  The good news is that my body was already responding to the elimination of poor choice foods and the re-addition of all those veggies.  I noticed […]

EASY Spinach, Veggie and Egg White Bake.

Sometimes I am smart enough to prepare delicious healthy food ahead of time…instead of scrambling in the mornings to get creative with meals!  I love using spinach.  I put spinach in a lot of things-its such a cool easy way to add in your veggies. If not on a 7 Day Detox or a 21 […]

Day 1 of TLS 7 Day Detox

I had my 3rd pre-calculus exam today and it was crazy hard but I think I did all right.  Which is good because otherwise all those hours spent at my dining room table would have been a total waste.  Well today I’m back to my commitment to myself to be healthy and happy.  The freshman […]

Happy Friday + Wedding Planning has begun

Happy Friday Peeps!  I honestly feel like this week has flown by and dragged by at the same time.  Have you ever felt this way?  Like that the days are dragging, but when Friday hits you just want a day given back to you.  So, it’s been while since I touched my blog.  I’m back.  […]

Sweet Potato Brownies

So this has been a craaaaazy month.   Remind me never to go back to school as a grownup again.  Oh right-if I finish this jig I won’t NEED to.  Ha!  If only I knew at 21 or 22 what I wanted to be when I grew up.  Speaking of being a grownup- I had my […]
