Say YES to your strengths!

It’s rare that I go more than four or five days without sharing a new recipe or some other super healthy tidbit with you guys, so the fact that I haven’t posted in over a week has sort of shocked me! What have I been up to? Well, the quote above says it all. Gotta […]

Must-Have Resources for Gluten-Free Living

In the past week, I’ve lost count of how many people I’ve met or heard of who’ve just started going gluten-free. And they’re seeing amazing results. Because I’ve been living this lifestyle for so long, it’s easy for me to forget about that initial transformation phase when you start to see symptoms disappear and health […]

The Best (and Worst) Books I Read in 2013

You’re looking at a corner of my 2014 vision board. And as you can see, I love to read! One of my visions for the year is to continue reading regularly, everything from non-fiction to fiction. Since I was young, fiction has been my fave, so I would say the majority of what I read […]

I don’t have any new cookie recipes for you guys today. No lose-5-pounds-fast tips to help you fit into your New Year’s Eve dress in a few weeks. (Although if you want to do that, you probably shouldn’t be looking for cookie recipes right now.) No amazing dairy-free eggnog recipes or advice for setting New […]

It’s beginning to look and feel a lot like Christmas! Since the season feels short this year because Thanksgiving came so late, I’m savoring every bit of the holiday spirit. I’ve already made two Christmas gifts for family members. It’s the first year I’ve done homemade gifts. They turned out okay…I just hope the recipients […]

In my 4+ years of blogging, this goes down as one of the most difficult posts I’ve written. Tears spilled over more than once as I pulled together the photos and began writing. I’ve wanted to do a before and after post for over a year, but it’s taken me a while to feel ready. […]
