Meatless Monday: Every Beet of My Heart Arugula Salad (Vegan)

Hello Darlings!

Okay, I admit it- this is the cheesiest recipe (and name) that exists on this blog and I ADORE it. With Valentine’s Day coming up red, pink, and white have everywhere and I knew I wanted to do something fun and festive as a side dish for the day set aside to celebrate our love (whether that is another person, or yourself it doesn’t matter!).  I spotted these gorgeous beets while perusing the produce section and my cheesy self turned on, “aww, every BEET of my heart.” Yep, that’s me- weirdo extraordinaire.

Yoga Poses to Beat the Winter Blues & Kharma Khare Yoga Mat Review

Hello Darlings!

My yoga practice is a bit unorthodox. And because of that my mats take a beating. From puppy paws to Red Rocks’ dirt to mountain snow, they have to bear a little bit of everything. So when Kharma Khare reached out to see if I might want to take their Hybrid Bliss Non Slip Eco-Friendly Yoga Mat for a test drive I knew I had to put it through the ringer before sharing it with you lovelies. And, boy, did it pass with flying colors!

Meatless Monday: Sautéed Mushrooms and Shallots with Brussels Sprouts

Hello Darlings!

I feel like I have been ridiculously busy for months on end. And with that I know that my healthy eating has been slipping. So I decided that this weekend I was going to take a bit of time to ready myself for another packed-to-the-gills week and meal prep just a bit.

What I Ate Wednesday: Getting Back on Track

Hello Darlings!

This past holiday season I was on the See-Food diet. If I saw it, I ate it- which led to a body that didn’t feel so great. I am all about the occasional splurge; I’ve been known to pack a beautiful salad for lunch, followed by baked chicken and veggies for dinner and then the next night house half a pizza, and for me that’s okay. However after all of my holiday splurging my body felt run down and heavy. Not in the ‘I gained weight’ way but the ‘I constantly put crap into my body and can feel it way’. So, this WIAW is all about getting back on track, and feeling healthy and whole in my body once again.
