DETOX Lunch: Detox Broccoli Salad

DETOX Lunch: Detox Broccoli Salad

Confession: I don’t really like broccoli. Fact: Broccoli is one of the HEALTHIEST foods imaginable! It’s also one of the only vegetables that my 3-year-old will eat….can you believe that? So, I’ve been trying to incorporate more broccoli into our diet on a weekly basis. I recently got a stove-top steamer which has truly made...

A.M. Yoga by Rodney Yee: A DVD Review

Yoga is one of those things I love doing but with two little ones in the house, I have a difficult time making it to a formal class on a regular basis. I recently picked up A.M. Yoga for Your Week and absolutely love it!  If you have decided to detox (check out my other posts on this here and here) or would like an easy way to add a yoga routine...

DETOX Breakfast: Overnight Crockpot Oatmeal

I love eating breakfast; in fact, it may actually be my favorite meal of the day! Starting out with a healthy fulfilling meal always makes the morning and perhaps my whole day better….but wow! there are certainly a lot of unhealthy breakfast options out there! In today’s fast-paced lifestyle, a quick and easy breakfast is necessary...

DIY Detox Diet: The Eating Plan

Spring is here……it’s time for a fresh start, don’t you think? Having had a baby less than a year ago, I have definitely been in a bit of “survival mode” which has definitely crossed over into my eating habits – meaning more quick, processed and comfort foods than I would like to admit! Now that my baby is nearing her first...

Detox Week: It’s time to “get clean”

It seems like everyone is “doing a detox” these days. Movie stars, Dr. Oz, that guy in your yoga class, your friend down the street…. Do I need to detox? I’m not an addict. I’m pretty healthy. Honestly, the idea conjures up images of seaweed smoothies, a bottle labeled “the ultimate colon cleanse”  and dropping loads of money at...

The Baby Diet {Or, the Elimination Diet}

The Baby Diet {Or, the Elimination Diet}

“Is he a good baby?”  I hated that question, loathed it, because I didn’t have a ‘good’ baby – I had a challenging, constantly screaming child and my only response to that question was a big, fat “no”. My detox food journey began last December.  Back then, my 3 month old son was crying.  And not...

Couch to 5k: I hope it gets better….

Couch to 5k: I hope it gets better….

Public humiliation. The fear of public humiliation is what has kept me going over the last 10 days. The first week of my couch to 5k training was great…..then I hit a slump….and that is exactly what usually derails my best work-out intentions. So, what happened? Well, I got an upper respiratory infection, coughing, runny nose, blah,...

Couch to 5k: A busy {and tired!} mom gets moving!

Today I signed up for a 5k race.  It’s on April 21st. That is exactly 47 days away. ‘gulp’ It’s not that I haven’t run a 5k race before, in fact I’ve run a handful of short races over the past few years. BUT, this is my first 5k since having baby #2 AND I’ve been pretty much sedentary for the past 18 months AND this time I’m going...

Christmas is over…but don’t let the WINTER BLUES get you down!

Christmas is over…but don’t let the WINTER BLUES get you down!

The excitement and anticipation of the holiday season is over. Christmas bulbs and stockings are stashed away, flannel pajamas are unpacked and hot tea is brewed in wait for the cold, dark days of January and February. For some, this time of year also provokes the winter blues….or to use the medical term, seasonal affective disorder...

When being tired is TOO tired…A must-read for Moms!

When being tired is TOO tired…A must-read for Moms!

Are you tired? Are you laughing at me right now? I think one of the hardest adjustments when we had our first kid was the tiredness that accompanies the never-ending demands of small children along with shortened and interrupted night-time sleep. But, there is a difference between being tired and being TIRED. As in so tired you don’t feel rested...
