The End

Dear Friends, It’s been seven years since I started this blog. I started as a young mother who needed an outlet – a community. And I found it. Then when I found my current lifestyle, it transformed into a food blogging/Paleo/CrossFit/Gluten-Free/Family hybrid blog. It’s opened doors for me – professionally and personally – and for that I am grateful ....more

Verizon DROID RAZR Giveaway

As you all know, I was selected to be a Verizon Savvy Gourmet Blogger – which basically means I got some really awesome devices and free service to use during the program (which :::insert sad trombone:::  is almost over). I am still in love with my Xyboard (tethering Wifi hotspot FTW!) and though the Intuition and I are on rocky ground, it’s still a very cool device to play with and learn about. I use them mostly in the kitchen ...more

Avocado Chocolate “Milkshake”

I’m writing this from the grave because clearly I have died from not having any wine in four days. Or brownies. You know, the things that make the world go ’round ....more

Detox Meal Plan Week One

I revamped our original weekly meal plan based on what we had in the house and what we picked up at the store this morning. We sat down this morning and made a shopping list, as well as a to-do list to make sure we were prepared for the week. ...more
