These are a few of my Favorite Things

I can't help but hum and want to start skipping and twirling through a field when I read those words :)  Am I crazy?  Maybe... But there's something about that song, those mountains, industriously crafting children's clothing from heavy curtain fabrics, etc... that just makes me smile :)              I thought for today's post I'd shake things up a bit and highlight a few of my favorite things (some food/kitchen related, some not). ...

Reboot Part 3: Grocery List & Menu

First, a picture of my loves: dear hubby and Babycakes being silly together.  Awwwww.  Well, let me tell you this - I am VERY excited about cherries and apples and bell peppers and tomatoes and carrots tomorrow!  I don't know how some people do the juicing for SIXTY days!!  Wowsers.  So, as you know, I'm heading into the final phase of the Reboot today.  Days 11 - 15 are similar to Days 1 - 5: a combination of eating limited fruits/veggies plus some juicing.  I do want to mention here that th ...

A Letter to my Future Self

You may not know this, but I am a part of a larger group of bloggers called "Healthy Living Blogs."  They have weekly recipe round-ups, where they solicit all of us bloggers' best recipes around a certain food, like avocado or strawberries.  You can see an example here.  They also have weekly blogging tips for those of us who spend so much time talking to our readers.  And they have monthly features around ...

Eating is Social + {Reboot Sunset Juice}

OK, officially I'm on Day 9 (of 15)...more than halfway there!  Overall I've felt pretty good during this Reboot...better than the first time I did it, I think because my body is already "rebooted"...the sugar craving was already dead before I started.  One thing you'll notice though, if you ever do a Reboot of your own, is how SOCIAL eating is.  Everytime family gets together, it's to share a big meal.  If you're meeting up with a girlfriend, you'll often go ...

Inside MY Fridge + {Blueberry Banana Bread}

Check out my interview with Inside the Fridge's Robin Plotkin, where she asks me questions about my shopping and food habits, coveted fridge items, convenience products, meal prep, and more.  And take a peek in my ACTUAL fridge.  I can already tell you there's a few things I wish you couldn't see (ha!) like the creme brulee creamer, miracle whip, and butter :)  I promise, they hardly get touched! ...

Reboot Part 2 JUICE ONLY: Menu, Shopping List, & Cost

So the first 5 days of the Reboot are coming to a close.  I'm headed into the JUICE ONLY portion of the Reboot...a part which I think is almost easier than the really strict "eating/juicing" phase.  There's something nice about less choices.  What am I going to eat today?  Um, juice.  It is recommended (and I agree) that you should try to reach an 80/20 ratio between veggies and f ...
