Fiber Choice Get Picky Challenge: My Thoughts (& Join Me!)

Hello Darlings!

For the past 30 days I have been taking part in the Fiber Choice Get Picky Challenge, a fun way to see if adding fiber (or changing the way you consume it) is right for you and your body.  If you’ve been reading Chickadee Says for a while you might know that I am very particular when it comes to what I put in my body so when I decided to add a fiber supplement I knew it had to be something special.

Meatless Monday: Sautéed Tomato and Herb Summer Salad

Hello Darlings!

I am clinging to summer with two (very tight) fists. While hiking this weekend I noticed the leaves starting to fade into autumn’s very beautiful colors yet I kept telling the colors to “go away.” Seriously, my hiking companions must have thought I was crazy, but alas, I’m a summer girl. So with that being said I absolutely love the tastes of summer, the gorgeous colors of ripening tomatoes, the fresh tastes of herbs, and the deep greens of kale and spinach. So I’ve added them all together and created a Sautéed Tomato and Herb Summer Salad, which is tasty now and is sure to keep your belly happy in the upcoming fall months.

Yoga Poses for Hikers

Hello Darlings!

Summer is in full swing here in Colorado. And I know the nights are starting to get a little cooler, but that’s perfect for someone who loves the heat but happens to have a puppy dog who was bred to drags sleds through the snow. Essentially now the weather is a more conducive to hiking, and with and excessive amount of hiking comes muscle soreness and tightness, which can be wonderfully combatted by practicing yoga in awesome clothes like these that were gifted to me by Lucy!

While I, of course, would recommend a full hour of yoga practice daily (or weekly, however that may just be the yoga instructor in me) there are certain poses that are incredibly great for hikers, even if practiced for just a few breaths!

Summer Drink Series: Spiked Blackberry-Sage Lemonade

Hello Darlings!

I have loved lemonade for as long as I can remember. However, as I’ve aged I like to think my tastes have become a bit more elegant (except you still can’t beat a box of Annie’s make and cheese- I’m not 100% adult, promise). So I’ve moved on from scooping instant lemonade to squeezing my own and creating more of a flavor profile.
