That Time I Ate A Piece Of Chicken By Accident

  Oh boy. I HATE when I miss a What I Ate Wednesday post. This week has been a little bit nutty for me routine wise which didn’t help me to remember to take  pictures, especially of breakfast, for yesterday’s post. Why can’t I remember to take pictures at breakfast?! Probably because I’m still half […]

  Laura and I began this week under the assumption that our recipe challenge for today would involve trying a new to us Power Bowl recipe. I am no stranger to eating Power Bowls. Power Bowls (or Buddha Bowls, the terms are often used interchangeably) have been my favorite go-to meals ever since switching to a meatless diet well over four […]

My Meatless Diet

  A close friend of mine recently told me that although she has been a carnivore all of her life, she is starting to consider a meatless diet and wanted my thoughts on the subject. Of course I took the time to talk to her in full detail and of course I decided that our conversation made for a great […]

How To Save Money Grocery Shopping Without Coupons

I don’t watch very much television. I mean, I have a few shows that I consider must-see-tv and I have no issue admitting to you that Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Long Island Medium and Honey Boo Boo are on this list. There is just something about that Boo Boo of a family that cracks me up. I know Mama […]
