Get Your Fix

Day 1 of the 21 Day Fix. Well, not exactly. Even though most of what I eat is healthy, I’m not completely raw yet and the processed food that I am eating is the wrong portions and wrong amount of the right things. Well Ashley, just go completely raw. Easier said than done. As we…

Food Swap

I’ll admit, I’m a weight loss show junkie. My 600lb Life, Fat Chance, Extreme Weightloss, Skin Tight, I love them all. Well except Biggest Loser. I think it’s wrong to eleminate contestants off of the show when this weight loss could save their life. That’s why I was excited when Shaun T announced that he…

“People Food” and Pets

I read a great article today about reducing inflammation in your pets. Our pets are not that different from us. They have organs and a lymphatic system, they can get cancers and stress, and their health is impacted by many of the same things that ours are. Our bodies are similar in a lot of…

Keep it simple…

While cleaning my house today and watching hours of HGTV, it dawned on me that I value convenience over style, sometimes. Crouched down on the floor, scrubbing the crevices of my cabinet doors clean, I day dream of a day where detailing my home with a toothbrush is a thing of the past.  If you…

Go Green in 2016

New Years Resolutions are something that nearly everyone falls victim to at one time or another. We all promise to work out more, eat better, manage our finance, take more photographs, try new things, gossip less, even fly a plane! No matter what your resolution is, chances are, within a few days or weeks, you…

It takes what?

Water is a precious natural resource. Everything requires water to survive. We all know that it takes a lot of water to produce beef, and other products, but it takes a lot of water and other resources to create all food. For instance, it takes 90 gallons of water to produce 1 pound of grain….

Omega-3 OMG?

Now-a-days we see additives on every product in the supermarket. “Great source of Omega 3.” “Contains vitamin C.” But did you know that this is all just a gimmick? Bread that claims to have Omega-3 added has so little in it, it’s appalling! You would need to eat 168 slices of bread or 20 “Omega-3”…

Economy burgers?

Have you ever been at the store and seen prepackaged burgers in the frozen food aisle? You look for the best price and grab a box. But what are you actually eating? Economy burgers, as they sometimes labeled, are barely beef. These burgers usually contain: -47% meat -21% heart -water -chemicals for taste and to…

Diet drink no no

Are you addicted to the fizzy? Do you fancy a soda from time to time? It’s ok in moderation, but don’t think that living on diet soda is going to help you loose weight. Most diet drinks replace sugar with aspartame. This artificial sugar has been linked to bladder, brain, and kidney damage and worst…

Peanuts, better than steak?

One pound of raw shelled peanuts have as much protein as 2 pounds of sirloin steak! Plus, it takes about 1200 gallons of water to produce 1 serving of steak. It only takes about 25 gallons of water to produce the same amount of peanuts.

Walked a million miles

Have you recently opened your closet and see a few pairs of old shoes. Shoes that have walked through mountains and parks, taken you to work every day, or danced in the rain? We once loved these shoes and they loved us. Instead of putting these old friends in a landfill to rot like garbage,…
