RANT: Yankle-Doodle Dandy! Happy 4th of July

We usually celebrate the 4th of July with my fantastically fun family at the beach.  Everyone decorates their bikes or makes golf cart floats and there’s a parade down to an area with jumps, inflatable slides and rides for the kids. (Which in theory is quite fun, but can also be a bit of a crowed, hot sweat-fest).  It is great to see everyone and catch … Continue reading RANT: Yankle-Doodle Dandy! Happy 4th of July

In a large bowl you can leave in your fridge all week combine: 1 cup cut organic strawberries 1 cup organic grapes 1/2 cup organic raspberries 1/2 cup organic blueberries 1 peeled and sliced organic peach, nectarine or cantaloupe (you pick, what’s in season, on sale or in the fruit bowl—I love cantaloupe, but it can be a pain to cut, huh?/) Having this prepped … Continue reading RECIPE: Super Duper Simple Summer Fruit Salad

RECIPE: Power Balls!

I have to be honest. I almost didn’t share this recipe with you guys.  Because I was going to launch the Power Ball Super Dessert line and retire on an island, giving 50% of my Power Ball proceeds to charity.  But I’ve decided my charity act instead, is going to be passing it along to you. Not that you are a charity act…really I’m way … Continue reading RECIPE: Power Balls!

RANT: why simplify?

I consider myself a fluctuator.  You know, a sorta healthy weight until the proverbial “___ hits the fan”, life gets stressful, then it starts …. I’m not sleeping enough, I’m eating junky foods, and lots of it, then BAM! I swell up like 2 sizes….until stuff cools down and I’m able to get back to my routine of healthy living. But then again, isn’t that’s … Continue reading RANT: why simplify?
