My Jawbone UP still hasn't arrived from amazon. I am slightly annoyed by that, but tracking says it will be here today. Yesterday was my first day of the Isagenix cleanse. I will say that the shakes are...mediocre. They remind me of appetite suppression/fad diet shakes my mother used to make in the 80s. The… Continue reading Day 2.
Wake up, sheeple. GMOs are scary, scary stuff.
I love to cook. But I almost never cook for my Hubby. He's a little on the picky side, a little on the carnivorous side and I am a little on the health nut, veggie lover side. It's so uber challenging living with someone that doesn't have the same palate as you. What was he… Continue reading Chicken and Spinach Stuffed Shells
In Eating for Fertility Part I, I explored the connection between aphrodisiacs and fertility. Now lets really dig into fertility health. What you put in your mouth before conception is just as important as after! Preconception health awareness should start 6 months to one year before conception. And this should include both parents. That's right… Continue reading Eating for Fertility: Part II
Eating for Fertility Part I in celebration of National Pregnancy Month! Pardon the Rusted Root reference (all I want is food and creative love) but considering food and love have been bedfellows for centuries, I thought it was appropriate. Food and love, sounds like a fresh new relationship, doesn't it? You know, the blissful ones,… Continue reading All I want is Food and Creative Love
Last week I told you guys the month of May is National Pregnancy Awareness Month. Since I am fully aware that I am NOT in fact pregnant. I thought I would dust off some Sprouting Wellness tips and talk about getting pregnant. It's funny, as women we tend to spend the majority of our early… Continue reading Getting Your Body Ready
You would think someone so obsessed with taking pictures of her food (have you seen my FB mobile uploads???) would know about a blog party that features what you eat. I don't know why I wasn't invited earlier! hahaha Actually, I stumbled upon the WIAW blog party from my friend Rebecca at Blueberry Smiles (I've been… Continue reading Fashionably late to the WIAW blog party….
Sure, you might feel like you're being healthy when you order a nutritious salad (meaning: not a pile of iceberg lettuce saturated in creamy, fatty dressing, but actually vegetables), but would you want to commit to eating all raw food, all the time? The raw food movement, sometimes called the Live Food movement, is focused… Continue reading What is going Raw?
Bean Sprouts. I love them. While they're mostly used in Asian cuisine, given their nutritional value I would like to advocate for their consumption in all cuisines including homemade soups and salads. Mung Bean Sprouts are power packed with pure forms of vitamins A, B, C, and E, in addition to an assortment of minerals… Continue reading Growing Your Own Sprouts….
I feel a little bad about ripping on Jersey's lack of peaks in my Touching the Button post so I decided to give Jersey a little credit where it's due. I am after all, a Jersey Girl(right now). One of the most amazing things about living in the Garden State is the bountiful produce to… Continue reading Jersey Peaches and Eco-Skin Care
