Broccoli Babies + {Asian Lime Salmon}

As promised, today I am sharing with you the recipe for the delicious Asian Lime Salmon I made this week (the same day that Babycakes' Pancakes were born).  If you can't tell, someone enjoyed their meal ------------>  Moi!  The other thing you can probably tell?????  I don't really like rice.  ESPECIALLY white rice.  I left about 90% of it on the plate.  But, dear hubby, who is half Korean, loves Loves LOVES whi ...

Photo Food Log # 2 + {Pinterest}

First of all, I joined the weight loss blogger bandwagon this week - and FINALLY ordered some PB2!!  I found a combo pack from Amazon that came with both the regular pb flavor and the chocolate pb flavor.   What is PB2?  It's basically peanut butter powder.  They have extracted out the oils from the peanuts, and subsequently most of the fat too.  It has some awesome stats:  2Tbsp = 45 calories, 1.5 grams of fat, and 5g of protein.  So now that they have arrived, I am in exper ...

A Tabletop Garden + {Cucumber Melon Juice}

So when I saw the name of this juice highlighted on the Jointhereboot website, the first thing that came to mind was Bath & Bodyworks' hand lotion.  This both excited me and worried me at the same time.  I can honestly say I've never once felt the desire to lick my hands after putting on this lotion, so I wasn't so sure a juice made out of cucumber and melon would taste very good!  I was skeptical, but thought it was worth a try.  The ...

2nd Run + Tangy Tilapia Avocado Wrap

I made it through another run last night.  I did come up with a few excuses...but I tied my laces and got out there.  Whew is all I can say.  It was definitely harder than the first run, for a couple of reasons:  1) My body was already slightly tired from the run 2 days prior.  2) Instead of having a doggie part ...

(GASP)... I eat frozen meals.

There I said it.  I eat frozen meals on occasion.  I know, I "should" make all my own foods from scratch, go to the local market weekly, and whip up something delicious and healthy to provide for my family.  There's a lot of things I "should" be doing...but I just don't have time.  As I'm sure you know, there are a lot of gross frozen meals out there,  enough to potentially dissuade you from ...

Busy, Busy, Busy....Join the Club.

Isn't funny how in every stage of life you think you're soooo busy, and then as each stage progresses you just get even more busy?  In college I thought life was so busy - all those classes, all that studying, and all that free time to work out and hang out with friends.  Yeah, life was hard... ...
