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. I hope that everyone had a fun filled Turkey Day and that you all got your fill of family, food and football :) Because Sissy and I are the only two in our family that actually cares what kind of food and ingredients we put into our bodies, I was tasked with bringing the “healthy” dish to our ...

A Fall flavored and nutrient packed snack, these no-bake Power Balls are the perfect snack for on the go!   A new recipe? I clearly must’ve had some time on my hands this weekend. Truthfully, it had nothing to do with time and more to do with the fact that I’m craving all things pumpkin. With the heat still preventing me from turning on my oven, I’m going to have to quench this craving no-bake style for a little while! Unless of course someone wants to send me some chocolate chip pumpkin bread. Cause I’d totally be open to that ;) This recipe is simply a new ... Continue Reading...

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. My habits this fall have been…well, not that good to be honest. But, if there is one thing I’ve learned through this recovery process, it’s just that. It’s a process. I’ve learned to roll with the punches so to speak, and not ... Continue Reading...

Halloween Joy Sucker

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 ...

Thank you guys for the love and prayers sent my friend’s mom’s way. It really means a lot, and I am glad that I was able to share her story with you. Hopefully someone will benefit from her disease, whether that be through knowledge or early detection. Today’s WEGO prompt is another interesting one…write a letter to your health  Dear beaten up, abused body of mine, When it comes to your health, I don’t seem to care much. Sure I try to eat as many vegetables as I can, try to limit my sugar intake, and sometimes ice my legs after soccer games, but I am ashamed to ... Continue Reading...
