Have you ever seen Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead.   For me this is one of the most powerful documentaries I’ve ever seen.  If you are lacking motivation to get up and kick yourself into a better you, this movie will do it.  In a big way. This is where The Healthy Juicer’s Bible kicks […]

I can’t think of anything better than to plant, plant, plant! So what to plant? Well, here’s a couple of markers I’ve created with the stuff I LOVE to plant during […]


Post image for What To Do With All That Easter Candy – Chocolate Covered Popcorn

Usually I’ll throw away all the candy left over from a holiday within hours of that holiday being over.  I mean like 9 a.m. the next morning over.  Somehow I missed one bag of unopened M&Ms.  The pastel colored bag was sitting in my pantry as I was pulling stuff  out to make popcorn and […]

As I headed out the door today to pick the kids up from school the temperature outside was screaming Summer while the allergies kept reminding me we’re still in Spring.  I won’t let a little thing like seasons get in the way of getting a head start on the fun.  I’m dreaming of the beach, […]

Ever since I was young, I remember my mother and grandmothers keeping a slice of uncooked beet in the fridge.  Every morning after applying their moisturizer, they would head over to the fridge and rub the beet on their cheeks and lips.  This was their daily makeup.  They always had that healthy glow about them.

I’ve got a new obsession and I happened to stumble upon it at Fresh Market.  Bear with me if you are all familiar with this, this…thing….I had no clue until today that they actually existed.  I couldn’t help but take a long whiff of the yellow, octopus looking thing while I googled the name posted […]

My nieces asked me to make some caramel apples for their high school bake sale and my wheels started turning.  I just can’t make plain caramel apples!  There needs to be a twist to this, somehow. Why not make my favorite candy bar, 100 Grand, “dress” the apples instead? Brilliant! Instructions: Start with branchless, clean […]
