Raw Food Recipe: Carrot Juice Smoothie

Sometimes I just don’t make it to the grocery store when I need to.  Like yesterday.  So I woke up today and had to scrounge around the bottom of the fridge to find something for breakfast.  I came up with this delicious raw food recipe for an amazing breakfast smoothie, Spiced Bunny Love!  [...]

Raw Recipe: Ice Cream Sandwiches

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream.  But really, what I scream for are ice cream sandwiches!  I just love them!  So what’s a girl to do when she can’t get any raw foods locally?  You’ve got it, just make them! [...]

What toxins are in your nail polish?

Ladies, let’s face it, summer is the time of year when at least our toe nails are painted all the time.  When summer hits it’s time for pedicure after pedicure, our toes need to look pretty when we’re wearing sandals and flip flops, right?  Walking into a salon, however, you are hit with a wave of toxic chemicals.  And you know it too, just from the smell.  [...]

Chicago’s Raw Food Restaurants

Chicago’s Raw Food Restaurants

Family celebrations took us to Chicago earlier this month.  And, surprisingly enough, we actually had the time and the chance to visit some of the raw food restaurants in the area.  We’ve only been making the trek to Chicago at least once a year and for the past 3 years have not been able to [...]

Summer = Sunscreen?

Summer = Sunscreen?

Happy 1st official day of summer!  Any plans for the long day of sunshine ahead?  My plans include spending some time outside to soak up some rays!  But not too much time as we are expecting a high of 95 degrees today.  To me, summer means spending time outside, by the pool, in the garden, [...]

Health Food Stores, a Vacation Treat

Health Food Stores, a Vacation Treat

Whenever and where ever a vacation takes us, I always make it a point to stop in to a few local, small health food stores.  Not only are they great places to stock up on a few supplies while traveling, but usually you’ll find ingredients and brands that you would have never come across back [...]

Leafy Greens: a Raw Food Restaurant Review

Leafy Greens: a Raw Food Restaurant Review

We are back from a long and much needed vacation to Florida!  The weather was perfect, the company (Rob’s family) was great and the special occasions (our 2nd wedding anniversary and Rob’s cousin’s wedding) were amazing.  A lot has changed since we’d last been in Tampa area, one of the raw food restaurants has closed!  [...]

Go Green for Earth Day!

Go Green for Earth Day!

Earth Day is tomorrow, April 21st, and it’s always been one of my favorite days of the year.  I can remember when I was in elementary school we always had a big festival to celebrate Earth Day.  Of course, those festivals were always accompanied by plastic trinkets like little puzzles and stickers, and I’m sure [...]

Sweat it Out

Sweat it Out

When I heard that you can burn up to 600 calories in just a half hour while lying still, I knew I had to investigate (and try it out)!  Really?  Up to 600 calories while I just lay there?  And it’ll help me detox, too?  I could hardly get signed up fast enough!

Messing up with a Measuring Cup

Messing up with a Measuring Cup

I’ve been playing in the kitchen lately and have come to a very serious (in my opinion) conclusion.  Mainly that not all measuring cups are created equal!  I have a few different liquid measuring cups and have been using them for quite some time.  I noticed in the past that sometimes whatever I’d make would [...]

I Wish I May, I Wish I Might…

I Wish I May, I Wish I Might…

I wish I may, I wish I might, can I share my wish with you tonight?  I wish for women’s empowerment and Tera Warner makes that possible!   The WISH summit started last week and continues through to the middle of April.  Not sure what WISH stands for?  Women’s International Summit for Health!  My dream [...]
