Antioxidant Rich Trail Mix-A little cup of Energy!

I'm always on the search for healthy snacks.  I know, the more I plan and portion out my food, the more successful I am at staying healthy and not overeating.  It's those times when I don't have healthy snacks that I can grab quickly, that I eat weird crap.  I pretty much don't keep junk food in the house but you can bet I will figure something out that's going to end up screwing me up for the day! I love trail mix, but let's face it-have you ever looked at the fat and calories in it?  It's a … [Read more...]

Summer Tapenade…Great for Your Taste Buds and Your Skin!

Summer time makes me want to make light, exotic food, served outside with a crisp white wine.  I love a good tapenade.  I crave it kind of like pregnant women crave pickles.  I love the tart salty flavor paired with a yummy pita bread or chip and a dry white wine.   Did I mention, tapenade can be mixed up in minutes-such a fast and easy way to serve guests or make yourself a clean, yummy snack! A while ago I did a post on the health benefits of olive oil on the skin.  That article discussed … [Read more...]

Ok, let's get real..... I LOVE Frappuccinos.   I don't indulge in them often, but when I do I savor every last drop!  Well, come to find out, like most things, it's FULL OF CRAP!  Being a carb/sugar conscious kind of girl  I was alarmed to find out that there are 83 carbs in a venti frap.  Not to mention 79 grams of sugar.  Oh, and high fructose corn syrup???  The poisonous ingredient I jump hurdles around to keep away from my children???  Yeah, it's full of it.  Pick your jaw off the floor, if … [Read more...]

Eating Raw the easy way!

I have a friend who told me something that sticks in my mind all the time.  She started eating raw and she says the brain fog cleared.  She couldn't say enough about how much better she felt.  Raw eating is hard.  I aim to eat as much raw as possible but I don't always succeed.  Two things I make that I eat almost daily are guacamole and salsa.  I have these 2 dips almost everyday for lunch and then follow it up with a green smoothie.  Plus, the health benefits of the good fats of an avocado and … [Read more...]

Drink your veggies!

I have a really hard time eating veggies.  I wish I liked more of a variety but I just don't.  I make a green smoothie about 5 times a week to help boost my intake of veggies, plus it does a lot for my skin too!  I add chia seeds which are great for blood sugar regulation, have a lot of fiber and are full of Omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants!  I also add Maca Root powder which is also good at regulating hormones, and boosting energy.  I love cinnamon so I add it in too and it also helps … [Read more...]
