In the last few months, I have learned a lot about healthy living and eating. One of the main lessons I have learned is that eating a plant-based diet (a diet centered around plants, vegetables and plant-based proteins) is the healthiest way to go. Unfortunately, while there is quite a bit of information on plant-based… Continue reading Thrive Kitchen and Plant-Based Living
There is a new study out that men who skipped breakfast had more chances of having a heart attack. They have been saying for years that people who eat breakfast tend to be healthier and control weight better. It seems to me that breakfast is pretty important (as the saying goes, "Its the most important… Continue reading Eat Breakfast!
As everyone knows by now, I have been participating in the Summer Shred and Extreme Summer Shred through Bobbi McCormick's blog NHerShoes. This has been an incredible and life-changing experience for me!

I have had a few obsessions recently. My first one is a little sad. Unfortunately the other day while my boyfriend was mowing the lawn, he ran over a nest of baby rabbits.

This means limiting prepackaged foods and… Continue reading What is Clean Eating Anyway?
Another successful day! I like taking things a day at a time, especially when times get rough, although that is not really the case at the moment. Things are starting to slow down (relatively) in my life, with the close of the school year (work) and summer beginning soon. My mind is now starting to… Continue reading My First Try at Tofu
Bobbi's Summer Shred has been kicking my booty! Its been an amazing, enlightening journey for me the past three weeks.

Since I started this Summer Shred through NHerShoes, I have been eating completely clean. I thought this would be incredibly difficult and that I would be starving all the time (especially since I'm tracking my calories), but truthfully, it has been much easier than I expected and I have been LESS hungry because I make… Continue reading Eating Clean
