Healthy Cherry Pie Protein Bars

Hi guys! I’m in the process of moving and the majority of my time has been spend building beds, moving boxes, and organizing our stuff. I didn’t realize how much of it we have!

Super Bowl Snack Attack! Sea Salt & Vinegar Zucchini Chip Recipe

I am the WORST football fan. Let’s just be real. I’m not much of a sport TV watcher in general. The situation becomes more bleak when the game lasts more than two hours. I just can’t concentrate or sit still that long! Now sport outings or parties… count me in! My favorite games to celebrate are of course my Alma Mater’s games. Fight On Trojans! However, the Super Bowl definitely comes in a close second. I love any excuse to be a little rowdy, eat delicious food, enjoy a few cold beverages, and pretend like I have a clue what’s going on on the field. I know what you’re thinking. Does she really eat all that game-day food?? Well, yes, and no. Whether Read More




10 Secrets for Weight Loss – Your Good Nutrition Checklist

Adding one or even five foods or exercises to your diet will not shed fat alone.

Healthy No Bake Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Energy Bites

It’s hot in most of the country right now. Like the can’t fall asleep without the fan on, windows open, no covers, no clothes kind of hot nights. Monterey, California, where I currently live, has pretty invariable weather, ranging from overcast to blue skies and temperatures between 60-75 degrees. It’s chronic running weather! However, last Sunday started with 5am thunderstorms proceeded by heavy humidity and hot showers. The rain stopped but the heat proceeded through Monday. I loved it! I’ve missed hotter summer weather. But, by Tuesday it had passed, womp womp. I promised R cauliflower crust pizza Sunday night after winning his second amateur golf tournament in two weeks! It had been a while since I whipped up this Read More
