Simple Summer Salads
One of the very best things about summer is living off of wonderful, cool, fresh salads. I have two that I am loving this summer.

I got a bee in my bonnet the other day to make granola. I’m not really sure why because this isn’t something that I make on a regular basis. However, I’ve been really trying to keep things clean and simple in my pantry and kitchen while also doing all I can to meal prep and… Read more about Simple Granola
I’m coming clean here. In fact, I’m already getting a bit squirmy thinking about hitting the “submit” button. Recently, I was involved in a photo session for a fitness studio where I love to teach.

Our bodies are miraculous machines that naturally follow its own detox regimen. This works beautifully until we go overboard with processed foods, sugars, alcohol and other too much of a… Read more about Let Your Body Do Its Thing!
I didn’t want to fill this space with a constant barrage of Whole30 posts, but I think a little check in is in order. I have had so many people ask me about it, ask me how I’m doing and how it’s going, I’d thought I’d share my two cents so far. I’m on day… Read more about My Whole30 Experience . . .22 days in
Well, hello there! Remember me? I am actually still around even though you might not know it from my looooonng absence from this space! It has been the longest I’ve gone without checking in here and I’ve missed sharing here with you all. Sometimes, though, we all need to take some time away from this… Read more about I’m Back with some Simple Shares
