MiraDry Review: I Microwaved my Armpits

Sunday, August 9th, 2015

Sweating is an unfortunate fact of life, and for some of us it’s a bit more of a hassle than others. While there is an actual diagnosis called “hyperhydrosis”, there is also a middle ground that is called “Sweat Bothered” individuals for those of us who sweat more than most, but not enough to have the medical […]

6 Low Calorie Pumpkin Spice Treats

Saturday, September 13th, 2014

There’s something about September that suddenly causes me to don crocheted slipper boots and scarves, drink #PSL’s and become the most basic of white girls. I JUST LOVE FALL WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME. I mean, I know it’s still over 100 degrees outside, but the clock is ticking and this casual jacket wardrobe […]

Foil Pouch Tilapia

Monday, July 8th, 2013

This is a great way to cook fish that is easy, fast, DELICIOUS and has super quick clean up. Just add a thawed fish filet of your choice (I use tilapia) to a foil sheet big enough to wrap loosely around the fish. Add veggies and seasonings. I used onions, green onions, lemons, Mrs Dash […]

Low fat/Low Calorie Deviled Eggs

Tuesday, April 23rd, 2013

Eggs are like little pills of protein- a staple of those looking to lose weight or build muscle (or both!) The problem is, eventually you can get sick of them. Real sick. So I do my best to try and doll them up any way I can. Deviled eggs are a comfort food for me, […]

Protein Waffles- Two Recipes

Sunday, April 7th, 2013

Breakfast can be tricky when you’re trying to watch your carbs, or cooking for someone who needs to be gluten free. I tried two recipes, both were successful (one more tasty than the other) and both are good for different needs. The first recipe is great for someone who is seriously watching their carbohydrate intake, […]

Peaches and Cream Protein Shake

Wednesday, March 20th, 2013

I was having a hard time with the idea of choking down another combination of protein, peanut butter and bananas. You can only dress those up so many ways. This combination was light and tasty, and a welcome change of pace. Peaches and Cream Protein Shake 1 Scoop vanilla protein powder (I enthusiastically recommend Jay […]

Perfect Baked Brown Rice

Sunday, March 3rd, 2013

Brown rice, while more healthy and nutritious than it’s white counterpart, is a serious pain to cook. Even when using a rice cooker I’ve had it come out tough and not cooked through. It takes ages on the stove and the hassle had me avoiding it completely for quite some time. When I started baking […]

Running your first 5k

Sunday, November 6th, 2011

I always hated running growing up. Maybe it was because we were forced to in gym class, or that I was never the fastest. A few years ago I discovered running outdoors, and it really changed my perspective on it. Having beautiful scenery, your favorite playlist on your ipod and fresh air in your lungs […]

Home: Dinner plans for 4/17-4/22

Sunday, April 17th, 2011

In March we did such a great job making and eating dinner at home. We hit a groove with the crock pot, making double batches of dishes for the freezer and it was great. Then April hit and life got busy and our whole eating at home thing went out the window. We noticed it […]
