Totally borrowing this idea from Ali.... These Littles have been in my life for 2+ years. Many people have asked me what it's like to "start over again." My answer? It's a lot of work, and a lot of fun...... Continue reading

I finished up Whole 30® last week, and gave myself a few days to recover before writing about it. Mostly b/c an earlier post might have included all the swear words, and my Mom gets cranky with me over that.... Continue reading

Wow - 90 days!? That's intense. I'd really need eggs for that long...90 days of only fish doesn't sound appealing. Omnivores have a lot more choices! Wishing you ALL the luck!!

Thoughts from Day 18 of Whole 30®... Even though I was eating fairly clean before...the strict rules of this program are no joke. Sneaky sugar is EVERYWHERE. Why in the world does dried fruit needed added sugar?? Commercially available salmon... Continue reading

I have experimented with a handful of eating "programs" over the last few years. I've done vegan challenges, raw challenges, no-alcohol challenges, and even (believe it or not), a no-coffee challenge. I find that challenges are the best way to... Continue reading

Those who know me well may gasp at this reading list, what with all the fiction. It honestly wasn't a conscious choice at first, but rather a reflection of the vibe of life right now. If I had to sum... Continue reading
