Announcement2

  I can hardly contain my excitement as I write this post for you!! NO, I’m not pregnant. Three weeks ago, I was sitting at my dining room table typing up a blog-post and daydreaming about where I wanted this little blog to be in a few years. I dream big, but there’s always been… Read more »

For my son’s 2nd birthday party last weekend, I wanted to create two different cupcakes. One for the chocolate lovers, and one using one of his favorite fruits: Strawberries. Even though I knew he probably wouldn’t eat one (he’s not into desserts oddly!), I couldn’t throw a birthday party without cupcakes. He cried when we… Read more »

If you’ve never tried pitting or peeling a mango, take my word that it is a slimy, slippery and messy process. Unless, of course, you know a few tricks. You’ll find a plethora of methods for cutting a mango, but after trying them all, I find this one is the cleanest and quickest. Peeling a… Read more »

Did you know the Nutri-Grain Bar slogan is “Take Care of You”? I guess Kellogs didn’t get the memo that soy, corn syrup, corn starch, and “enriched” flours are really hindering your well-being rather than “taking care of you.” I’m not usually one to bash commercial food items sold in mass amounts at grocery stores,… Read more »

ZukeNoodles

  There’s plenty of silly names for them: zoodles, zusketti, zuttuccine. Strangely, we call zucchini “zukes” (and and cucumbers “cukes”) around this house.

This vegetable curry only takes 15 minutes to prepare and is packed full of anti-inflammatory spices! It’s also night-shade free and the first thing I’ll be making when we start our 30-day cleanse!
