Treat Yo Self…

I decided when I started this journey that in order to make this change sustainable I would need to allow myself some breaks from eating so strict. So I decided to give myself a meal/night off. It gives me something to look forward to and keeps me motivated to eat healthy the rest of the…

My first try…

I really enjoy trying different types of cuisine, but I rarely have the confidence to actually try to make it in my kitchen. That being said, my best friend sent me a recipe that she thought I should try for Butter Chicken fromĀ One Lovely Life, but when looking at the website I saw she had…

A new favorite…

Sorry it’s been a few days since I’ve posted, but for those who get overwhelmed with the amount I was posting in weeks prior, this has probably been a welcomed break. It’s probably thoroughly enjoyed by my Instagram and Facebook friends who are tired of my food pics! šŸ™‚ Well a lot has happened this…

Almond Milk….

If you would have told me a few years ago that I would useĀ almond milk as much as I do, I would have called you a liar. In concept, almond milk boggles my mind. How can you milk from almonds? I know that I could YouTube it, but I prefer the mystery. But all that…

happy medium

I am almost done with this wonderful book by Shauna Niequist,Ā Present Over Perfect. I referenced it a few posts back, but I just finished a chapter that made me feel like I needed to get up and write. The chapter is called Happy Medium. In it she writes about the expectations of the world and…

When Fall Feels More Like Summer…

I don’t think this is limited to Colorado but the weather here is wacky! It should be feeling like fall right?!? I’m so ready for soups and chilis and all things cooler weather, but it’s still 90 degrees out! So to fit with the theme of the weather, I decided to make a summer-esque dish…

I’ll be up in the gym…

…just workin on my fitness. -Fergie In addition to the work that I’ve been doing in the kitchen, I also have been trying my hardest to work out too. I know how important it is, but it is fricken hard to do when you have two kids, a husband, a job and so many responsibilities,…

You like it…you really like it!

I have had some awesome feedback the last few days about the blog! One of my friends even sent me a picture of one of the recipes he made! Oh it makes my heart so happy! Sure, I have grand dreams of being a blogger that tons of people love and follow, but for now…

BBQ Weekends…

I, like pretty much everyone else in the world, love long weekends. Having that extra day to do whatever you like is amazing. Maybe that’s hanging with friends and/or family, taking an extra day for rest and relaxation or doing something fun. I wish we could have one of these a month! One of the…

Eating Out…

Man…eating out is my downfall. Sometimes life gets so hectic and busy that I can’t even remember what day it is let alone planning what I will have for my meals. It makes it even worse when your selection of food it limited. In my previous life (I can say that if it’s been a…

Chickpeas…

I am a salt person. I love salty, savory snacks. I think that in the same way that there are dog people and cat people, there are salty snack people and dessert people. I could plow through a whole bag of cheetos in one sitting. I love my salt. Funny story… When I was growing…
