The folks […]

Budget Grocery Shopping

Welcome back everyone! I hope you all had wonderful 3 day weekends. We had a great time in Chicago (like usual!). The weather wasn’t fantastic, but we made the best of it. We went by our old place, which is still standing! It’s a super old place that looks like a dump from the outside […]

Windy City Weekend

Hey ya’ll! We’re headed to Chicago today for the long weekend. We just moved from Chicago in August and lived there for 2 years prior to that. I love Chicago and am so excited to go back and visit the city and all our friends we left behind. In honor of the Chi, here’s this […]

Body for Life

So, I mentioned I’m trying to follow a Body for Life eating program. I think I would actually call it more of a “lifestyle” than a diet or program. That’s because I think it’s a pretty realistic way to eat for the rest of your life, not just for a few weeks.

The book […]

NuGo Bar Review

I feel like I’m always looking for the perfect snack bar. I think I’ve found a few contenders that are in my top five. A couple of these are oldies, but goodies (i.e., Lara Bar, Luna bar, etc.), but I’ve found a couple new ones too.

I recently tried a NuGo bar….the NuGo Go Organic […]

Sloppy Joe’s!

In the spirit of Body for Life (I promise I’ll do a post on this), I made up a Body for Life friendly dinner last night. I honestly haven’t had a sloppy joe since elementary school. I did however, used to eat an amazing vegan sloppy joe in Chicago at Karyn’s restaurant (highly recommend it […]

Boot Camp!

I love finding new workout combinations, so I was pretty excited when I found a gem in last month’s Oxygen magazine. It’s designed to be somewhat of a boot camp, giving you a couple strength exercises with cardio sprinkled throughout. I think incorporating strength exercises and cardio is the best way to burn calories and […]

Grocery Finds!

I’m trying to revamp my diet a bit. For a while there I just felt like I was getting a little out of control with the sweets and carbs (oreo stuffed chocolate chip cookies anyone?). Two things that I love and very much enjoy losing control with :). I want to keep myself in check […]

The Morel of the Story

This weekend the husband and I went hunting….for mushrooms! Sounds kind of dangerous doesn’t it? It’s really not. It’s basically walking around a park staring at the ground for hours looking for mushrooms. Not just any mushroom of course (we’re not crazy!), but the prized Morel mushroom. Morel’s are special because they can’t be farmed. […]

Strawberry-Avocado Salsa

Finally we had a warm day today in Cleveland. It actually started to feel like summer! I think chips and salsa is always a good summer snack. Regular salsa’s great, but it’s fun to get creative with different, refreshing ingredients. I made one last summer with black beans, corn, and garlic and it was so […]
