love it! kale

Currently I have orange zest, orange peel and vanilla extract simmering away on the stove top.  Hunter is napping.  I’m freshly showered, looking out the window at the beautiful sunny blue skies and munching on these crackers.  A pretty nice Wednesday afternoon is in the works over here. However, that’s not what today’s post is […]

crockpot chicken noodle and kale soup

Good morning!  How was your weekend?  We had a pretty relaxed one up at the lake house.  Lots of beautiful sunshine.  This little guy loved running around in it.  Rocks in hand, of course.

Super Eggs

Good news.  I’m feeling mucho better.  So much better that I’m heading to Pump this morning!  Life’s much more fun when you go out and do stuff. When I was growing up it seems like Sundays were the special breakfast day.  We’d have our bigger sit down breakfast together.  A couple meals I specifically remember […]

Green Smoothie Fail

Not every smoothie is a success like yesterday’s bright and vibrant beet and banana smoothie.  If you like beets then you must give it a try! The success of that smoothie followed the downward spiral of another. I had an intense urge to try both kale and spirulina together in a smoothie.  I figured that […]

Finished Up And Starting New

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  I hope you eat a lot of green today! Yesterday was my final nutrition for fitness class.  I think it was the most enjoyable class I’ve taken ever. Okay, scratch that.  It’s a tie between nutrition and fitness testing that I took last quarter.  Fitness testing was very hands on learning, […]
