Can you guys BELIEVE the Vikings vs. Saints game this past Sunday??! Maybe no one else is excited because it’s the Vikings and it’s pretty rare for me to find another Vikings fan around here, but regardless, I was pretty pumped Sunday evening after that win. According to Gavin as he was trimming his nails in the final seconds, It was a real “nail clipper”. Also, maybe no one else finds that funny… but I got a good laugh out of it anyways.
If you know anything about my food preferences, you know I love ANYTHING that’s spicy. So does Gavin. So when he asked me to make something that involved jalapeños and chorizo, I was on it. Like, that day on it.
If you’ve been paying attention to the health and wellness community lately then chances are you’ve heard all the craze about bone broth. I’ve been making it for the past few years but recently it has started to become a staple in my diet. You may be wondering…”Whats with all the hype?”
Well, bone broth is full of anti-inflammatory and gut healing proteins. It is also very mineral rich; containing Phosphorus, Potassium, Calcium, Magnesium and Amino Acids that our body needs (Paleo Leap, 2016). Some of the health benefits include:
If you know me, you know I am a huge Bachelor/Bachelorette ADDICT. I started watching it when I was a sophomore in college and I’ve been hooked ever since. I haven’t missed an episode in six years. I think the shows completely ridiculous, BUT…I love EVERY. SINGLE. BIT. I wasn’t thrilled when I found out Arie was this season’s Bachelor. I didn’t like him at all in Emily’s seasons; however, I don’t even remember why I didn’t like him since it’s been like what, 100 years since he was on Emily’s seasons?? Soo…I’m giving him the benefit of the doubt and letting him have a second chance.
When I first switched from eating a Standard American Diet to a healthier lifestyle, and then later transitioning to Paleo, I didn’t look forward to the Holidays. I actually had anxiety thinking about it. What would I eat? Did I have the willpower to not eat the foods I knew would make me feel sick and miserable? Do I have to just sit there and watch everyone else eat all of my favorite foods I used to look so forward to eating for so long? Would I ruin all of my clean eating efforts and hard work in the gym over the holiday season?
Hey Friends! I apologize for being so absent the past few weeks, I just finished up freezing my eggs in preparation for my transplant and I had some unforeseen complications that landed me in bed for a good week and a half, BUT, good news: we now have eight successfully frozen embryos to use whenever we choose after I am finished with my transplant! Sidenote: these are also referred to as Blastocysts? That’s what the nurse called them when she delivered the good news, anyways. Prior to finding this out Gav and I just referred to them as frozen babies. Now that he knows they are called Blastocysts he uses the term interchangeably with “baby”. So now I am referred to
So I have recently felt compelled to share this story with all of the internet to read when a friend of mine had a very similar encounter as myself about a month ago. It got me wondering…how many of us have gotten ourselves in a similar utterly delightful predicament?
I was treated to a much needed and overdue massage by my mom (she’s a gem isn’t she?) when I came home to visit last. Words cannot describe my excitement for this! I used to treat myself to massages regularly when I was doing hair and my insurance covered them. I immediately stopped when I switched insurances and received a nice fat $150 bill in the mail for a single massage, GAG. So needless to say, I was in desperate need.
Okay. You don’t just need a little, ya need A LOT, alright?
I (technically my mom 🙂 ) first came across Moringa when we started going to one of my favorite little local lunch spots, The Moringa Tree Cafe, a few years back. The owner, Jenny Weaver, who is a Naturopathic Doctor (along with many other titles that revolve around the holistic health industry), carries the nutritional powerhouse in her cafe. She not only carries it, but she actually named her entire business after the tree where Moringa Powder comes from. She educated my
mom on the benefits of Moringa and she sent her home with a bag full of the dried leaves in powder form. Long story short, we’ve been taking it ever since!
Good news folks! I think after typing up the recipe for this, I FINALLY (after years of failing miserably) learned how to spell spaghetti! Now if I could only get “restaurant” down we’d be all set!
This is one of my favorite fall/winter meals to make. In fact, it was one of the first meals I made when I started to change my eating habits in college. I’ve recently been getting several questions regarding easy to prepare meals, as well as cost effective meals. Well this is a great option,
Being married is awesome. Well actually, it mostly feels the exact same as before, except for one thing. Unexpected surprise wedding gifts just keep on coming, even long after you’re married. Coming home on a random night to a doorstep filled with surprise packages for basically an entire year is just so much fun. You know, kind of like the saying “the gift that just keeps on
