Take that out if you’re watching your sugar… NUTTY CEREAL Preheat your oven … Continue reading Nutty Cereal.
Hello beloved friends. Did you know that you are my accountability partners without even doing a thing? I don’t even have to know who’s reading this to feel a sense of responsibility when I make a declaration, or a promise. It might backfire on me from time to time, but it’s still so therapeutic to try. I’m going to do a week-long reset, starting today. … Continue reading Pick your poison.
Happy Spring! Let’s celebrate the warm sun with a teacup full of sunshine and health! Huzzah! This gazpacho is special ~ it doesn’t use bread to thicken ~ it uses one boiled egg (or more if you want to get your protein on!) It also does not contain cucumber.

Good morning, lovely people! I think you all know by now that my favorite subject is HEALTHY BREAKFAST FOODS. Although, lately I’ve been partaking a little too much in the coffee shop pastry genre. I can’t say I’m sad about it.

Have you ever felt guilty for someone else’s nasty behavior? That doesn’t make a lick of sense, but I think it happens more often than we realize. Let me set the scene.
