Monday Musings 6.18.18

Ah, the elusive Monday post. The idea sounded really good in my head and I felt pretty excited about sitting down to type out a weekly post that wasn’t necessarily related to food, recipes, products, or the usual suspects. But the execution has proven to be challenging! Whether it’s the inability to put my thoughts…

Monday Musings 3.19.18

Last week I found out that the brand Garden of Life is owned by Nestlé…and I literally felt crushed. Now, I know this is old new so some of you (it happened back in December), but I guess that’s what happens when you aren’t on social media anymore…you become the last to find out a…

The Gift of Time

I told myself that I wasn’t going to write about this publicly…That I wasn’t going to spill a bunch of emotions again because my last two posts were rather long and personal (and somewhat heavy).

BOOK REVIEW: Superfood Juices by Julie Morris and My 3-Day Juice Detox

Let me first say that I LOVE to eat, therefore, I do not believe in diets. In my opinion, if you lead a healthy lifestyle and take care of your body, there is no reason you need to deprive your body of food and it’s ok to indulge every now and then. I do, on the other…

A Personal Struggle

I have found that the best writing comes from the heart – where true passion lives. Where compassion and emotion are found, you will also find absolute truth. People can relate more to honesty and real life than fictional fairy tales. It makes me sad that some people think that they have to struggle in…
