Order a bunch of organic food items like capsicums or rocket leaves and you may feel the difference. You are eating healthy because it is food devoid of any chemicals or pesticides but tastes better. When we are consuming organic edibles, we tend to have them often in raw form as they are safer. It does not require much of cooking. Farming for organic food products is guided by many principles – health, ecology, fairness and care.Why Organic Is Good?

This weekend was just one of those great weekends that makes you realize what life is all about.  It was a weekend of friendship, laughter, and just enjoying the simple joys together.My family and I were blessed to be invited to spend this past weekend at close friend’s parents’ home in northern Minnesota. What made it really special was that we were joined by three other families, that we have grown so close to and are truly more than friends.. they are family.

I don't know what took me so long to try out Cauliflower Rice. For those of you not familiar, it's pretty simple. You grate cauliflower or throw it in a food processor until it breaks down into rice-sized pieces. Then you just cook it down until tender. Cauliflower Rice is born!

I love you like a fat kid loves cake. Or, in my case, I love you like I love potato chips.That essentially would be the highest compliment I could give you.I love chips. Period. I have a particular deep love for salt n vinegar chips. They are just the most yummy thing on the planet as far as I’m concerned. I can eat so many of them that my tongue puckers. There is nothing better than sitting in front of the tv and eating a bag of chips. That’s correct, I said bag. Because frankly who ever eats just a few chips? (If you do, I am impressed.) But, for those of us normal humans who can’t stop at one or two chips, there is a price to pay. For one thing, the ol waist line, another, I sometimes feel that my skin doesn’t love all that sodium. So I have found a great chip replacement, called kale chips. They are super easy to make, and they are a super food. Kale is incredibly high in fiber, packed with vitamins, and per calorie has more iron than beef! A direct quote from the internet says that it is a “dieters dream food.” Now I’m not much of a dieter, but I’m happy to pop anything salty with crunch into my mouth whilst watching Homeland. So why not it be something incredibly healthy, but with that same salty-crunch satisfaction from potato chips? I know, why not? Why?Oh, but you can! I’ve posted a recipe here, and before you get started here are a couple of my tips. First off, you’ve got to get the olive oil on every last chip. I mean make sure that thing is oiled up like a supermodel on a beach shoot in the 80s. You have got to get that oil everywhere! Now, I like to do a salt n vinegar variation(huge surprise) and the vinegar can kind of burn in the oven. So I suggest if you want to do salt n vinegar, just follow the recipe below and then add a few drops of vinegar at the end for that tangy goodness. The regular recipe is just as good though. You can try a ton of varieties(I’ve tinkered with parmesan as well), but these are my favorites. Happy crunchin and munchin(yep, I just said that.)   Kale Chip Recipe You will need:One bunch of kale(I think it is in season in the fall, but you can pretty much get it year round so whatevs;)Olive OilSea SaltVinegar(if you are doing my variation) I’ve used both malt and regular ol vinegar, frankly, both are good it’s just a matter of how vinegary you can go. (Side note-if you are like me and your favorite chip is extra salt and vinegar, then go regular.)Preheat oven to 350 Spray a cookie sheet with non stick spray. Remove the kale leaves from the stem and cut into bite size pieces. Drizzle with olive oil and salt to taste. (I say a couple of tablespoons of olive oil so they are good and covered.) Then rub the kale with the oil to make sure it's on each leaf. Sprinkle a bit of vinegar over the kale(a small drop on each leaf otherwise it will burn.) Line the cookie sheet with the kale chips. Make sure they don't cover one another or else they won't crisp up correctly(I know this is not my first rodeo:) Cook for fifteen-twenty minutes or until crispy. Remove from pan and you can always add more salt if you like. Get crunchin and munchin(I know, I can't believe I said that twice...sigh.) Similar Recipes Check Out My Blog:

So I've gained a little weight.When I say “a little,” I mean somewhere in the range of 30 pounds over the past two years. That was on top of the roughly 20 extra pounds I’ve been cushioned with since 2009, when my youngest child was born. None of these pounds have come easily. No, they’ve been the result of hours, maybe whole days spent counting calories, points, steps and serving sizes.

Organic food is more about perceptive health benefits. It is a healthier alternative because it does not use pesticides or any type of chemicals that harm our body or its surrounding environment. Such food items are Genetically Modified Organisms free as GM food depicts a genetic mutation gone wrong when genes from a certain type of species are inserted into another. This goes against nature as plant genes are spliced into animals and vice-versa.Say No to Pesticides and Fertilizers

Most healthy people know that you have to have a balanced diet to feel your best, and even look your best, if that is your concern. There’s no surprise that if you eat junk food, you will feel like junk. Ever heard of the phrase, “You are what you eat”? That statement proves to be true every day, in my life. After losing over 100 pounds, I realized how much better I could feel when I was fueling my body correctly.

Hey Guys! I hope you're having a good Wednesday thus far! I slept in until 10 after staying up reading until 2am so 8 solid hours of sleep was perfect. It's weird ya know .. When I first found I was pregnant, I needed like 12-hrs of sleep a night + a ton of small naps through the day. Now I never nap, exercise more and find that anything over 8-hrs makes me groggy and blah!Moving on though, let's have a look at a few things Tuesday things:
