It’s […]

It’s Wednesday and many bloggers share what they eat on hump day. I’m not sure who started it but I did a pretty good job at photographing my meals yesterday so why not!? I just started my new DietBet – which you can still join – so my diet is a little different than normal. […]

While I have a delicious Peanut Butter and Jelly smoothie in my book, Barry’s Bootcamp also has their own recipe and man it is good. I have a handful of readers who hate bananas and this smoothie recipe is smooth and creamy without using any! Under 300 calories, it’s the perfect meal after a morning […]

Oh how I love Trader Joe’s. I stopped by the itty bitty store on Boylston Street yesterday was ecstatic to see that finally canned pumpkin was on shelves for the Fall! To celebrate, I thought I’d share with you a mini haul featuring some of my new favorite products and a couple that I can’t […]

When it comes to being “healthy” what comes to mind? Is it weight, body fat percentage, getting your daily dose of vitamins, regular exercise, free from disease, not feeling depressed or having energy throughout the day? As we get older, our perception of what health is and looks like changes. We might have been overly […]

On Monday, I began a 3 day juice cleanse from The Ripe Stuff. It was my first since November! I’ve done a bunch of one and two day cleanses in between but never felt the need to do a full on 3 day like I did after traveling for a month and celebrating the 4th […]
