Kale Smoothie with Almond Butter

Good morning y'all! Hope you had a great weekend. Ours was good, just with slightly less sleep (yes, it is possible). Baby is not sleeping as well as he used to. And I think he might be getting hungry...he is 6 months old (!) in 2 days. He's also cutting teeth now so probably bit of both - getting ready for food and teeth are buggin' him. His mood isn't different during the day but at night he's feeding more than usual. We leave for Florida on Saturday so I was planning on starting solids when we got back but it's looking like his tummy has a different plan....more

I'm just now starting to get a craving for salads again. Salads are something I have always loved and frequently eat. I'm pretty sure this winter casted a spell on me to only crave foods like, potato soup, french fries, and orders of thai take-out. Yea, you know all that good starchy stuff....more

Banana kale strawberry smoothie

Happy 2015!  Another year gone by, another new one to tackle.  I didn’t make New Year’s resolutions this year but am always inspired by everybody’s renewed interest in health, nutrition and wellness after the holidays.  The media is bursting with fitness tips, exercise routines and weight loss recipes.  You can’t watch TV without seeing ads for home exercise equipment.  The gym is  packed (albeit temporarily, thankfully!)....more

Easy Dinner Recipe: Pasta with Fennel, Kale, and Chicken Sausage

What can I say? I have a thing for pasta. First of all, let it be known that I love carbs. Second, pasta is so simple to make, even I can't screw it up. And finally, it's a quick meal. This easy dinner recipe adds in a lot of veggies, and the sausage makes it more filling than your typical pasta + bottled sauce combination. Goat cheese is my favorite everything, and adding it creates a creamy sauce....more
