My End to Dieting

Well world, shortly after Thanksgiving, I decided to throw in the towel on the vegan diet. It was a good run while it lasted, but after 5 months, it wasn’t for me. Even though I was quite aware of my macro and micro nutrients, and properly substituting my protein / vitamin intake, I didn’t notice…

How to Become Vegan

What started off as a 2 week vegan “challenge”, has turned into an eating lifestyle I’ve stuck with for a few months now. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not full blown PETA vegan. I’ve eaten meat all my life, my blog is plastered with recipes of meat and dairy, my hubby is a power lifter…

Manifested Dis-Ease

Summer 2014, I noticed a change in my period, which would last more than usual, and turned to lasting 2 weeks… 2 weeks turned to a month, and Aunt Flow began coming and going as she pleased.

Dealing with Depression

It took some thought to share what I had been going through.
Mostly because I was your average happy, bubbly, high energy kinda-girl, and didn’t want to share this part of my life, however, that turned out to be the reason why I decided to share this part of me with you…

Detox, Diets and Cleanses

When in conversation on living a healthy lifestyle, whether with friends/family or people I meet, diets, cleanses and detoxing always come up. One of the major misconceptions is being misinformed on either 3.

The first step to clean eating is cutting out the “bad foods” such as processed…

Cheat Days

Do you ever find, when you are with someone who has decided to change their eating lifestyle, but down something that isn’t part of their “diet”, they immediately (without question) justify its their “cheat day”. “Cheat Day” just sounds uncommitted and poor reasoning to eat whatever you want for an entire day. Anyone who is…

Committing to a Workout Plan

If you’re like me, I like to follow a workout program that I can dedicate myself to. Finding the right program is key. You want to follow something you know you’ll commit to, whether it’s 15 minutes of cardio, or 30 minutes of cross-fit, an hour of power lifting, or waking up at 7am to…

The Importance of Our Bodies pH Level

Since the beginning of the year, many family and friends have noticed that I carry a water bottle with an alkaline stick in it. I explain the benefits of the stick, which add essential minerals to my water, as opposed to regular filtered water, via Britta, or any other water “filtration” system. You can read…

Health Benefits of Tiger Nuts

I was first introduced to tiger nuts two years ago at a health and wellness convention show. It caught my attention, as there was a pamphlet promoting the tiger nuts ability to prevent blood clots, which was around the time my mom had her first brain aneurysm. I didn’t purchase them at the show, as…
