Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I love all the food but hate that bowling ball belly bloat so I try to lighten up the food. To me the bird is a secondary character and I make plenty of go alongs as the sides are my faves. There are so many to choose from and I usually make five or six (or seven or eight)! These four recipes are the ones I make every year without fail. I’m sure if I ever eliminated one of them there would be a price to pay!Read More
In theory I love to make all my food from scratch but that’s just not realistic. With a little thought it is possible to eat healthy at home. Always being prepared is the answer. I keep many different meal ingredients in my home so I can always make something quick, easy and nutritious. One of my favorite things to keep in my refrigerator is a rotisserie chicken. These are readily available at most supermarkets and delis. While true that they are usually prepared with a seasoning high in sugar and salt, but there are ways to improve the nutrition numbers of a store bought bird.Read More

There are a lot of different approaches so choose what works best for you.Read More

How I eat, how I exercise and how I live my life all revolve around my commitment to my wellness.
I’m focused on remaining healthy and maintaining a strong metabolism and healing as I age. I gravitate toward products and brands that elevate my efforts. Too many companies out there make false claims to make clean products that drive real results. The sad truth is that those same companies are often preying on consumers’ vulnerabilities.
When I find a company that holds the same values as I do AND creates products with clinically-proven results, I know I’ve come across the real deal. That is why I was thrilled when I was approached by Pendulum, a cutting-edge company dedicated to making people healthier through microbiome-targeted natural solutions.Read More
Frozen fruit pops have always been a favorite of mine! I remember as a young girl I waited all day for the ice cream truck. There were three different vendors that came down my street. But there was one I liked the best because it had great frozen pops. Although I preferred ice cream, I always chose the frozen fruit pops because they lasted a long time!
I still love nothing better on a sweltering day. Once that frozen fruit pop hits my lips I am instantly cooled off — like a big, cool gust of wind. There are plenty of good commercial pops. but I like my frosty frozen fruit pops the best!Read More
