Join Nuts.com and I to find out how healthy snacks can boost your overall health and aid you in your health goals! So unless you've been living under a rock [or are just really, really new to my blog] you guys are all pretty familiar with my snacking habits. I use the term habit here loosely.

A healthier spin on the traditional potato au gratin recipe, this spaghetti squash au gratin is just as cheesy and delicious.   Happy National Detox Week! [also known as the week after Thanksgiving] Ok, so national detox week isn’t actually a real thing, but it should be.

HUMP DAYYYYYY! You’ve all seen that ridiculous camel hump day commercial right? If you haven’t, don’t look it up. It’s really not worth getting in your head. Now I can’t get through a Wednesday without thinking about it. Stupid camel. Since this month’s WIAW theme is all about falling into good habits, I wanted to touch on something this week.

I’ve learned to roll with the punches so to speak, and not ... Continue Reading...

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!! I had magical plans tonight of gorging myself full of Reese's, Butterfingers, and candy corn, but after last night's experience I think that won't be happening. We had a church event last night for the kiddos in which I had 1 mini cupcake, 1 mini Almond Joy and a small bag of fresh popped popcorn and let me just tell you, my tummy was NOT pleased with me!! I went to bed feeling terrible and of course woke up feeling just as bad. Man, my body really doesn't handle junk food well! Maybe I'll just have 1 Butterfinger tonight....It is Halloween after ...
