October Group Reboot + {The Spicy Carrot} Juice

So this weekend I was thinking of doing another Juice Reboot. As fo why, I would like to shed a couple of stubborn pounds, increase my veggie consumption, but also reboot my system to crave less sugar again. It's easy to slip into old habits. And this is a good way for me to start fresh again. I asked if anyone on my blog's Facebook page was interested in JOINING ME...and I was blown away by the response!! ...

Chickpea Burger Giveaway & Greek Mashed Cauliflower

Can I just start out with the word YUMMOLA?!?! This is exactly how I felt about this entire meal.  Awhile back, I was contacted by MorningStar Farms to see if I'd be interested in trying/reviewing their new Mediterranean Chickpea Burgers. With 70% less fat than regular ground beef and containing less than 2% soy protein, I immediately said YES, PLEASE!  I am a huge fan of hummus and of burgers, so this felt like the perfect combination :)  It took me awhile to find it at the store, but finally my eyes were drawn to this packaging: ...

Insanity Workout + {Asian Layered Salad}

Confession time:                       I HATE WORKING OUT. There, I said it!!  I always like how I feel afterwards, but the before and during always suck. That being said, structure is good for me...which is why I've started the 3 month "Insanity" workout program.  Dear Hubby bought it a year or two ago thinking that we would do it together, but we only lasted about 2 weeks because it hurt his knees/joints too much. ...

Eat the Rainbow + {Golden Meatloaf}

Friday's Elf for Health challenge was to "EAT THE RAINBOW" and see how many colors we could squeeze into one day.  I had so much fun making my meals as colorful as possible (with no dyes of course!).  If only I could would eat this good EVERY day :)  The challenge made me think about getting a variety of colors and nutrients/vitamins, as well as focusing on fruits and vegetables, which tend to be the most colorful foods! ...
