As I sit here and eat a bowl of pasta as a last goodbye to carbs, I am about to start a new food journey. I am calling it a journey instead of a diet, because this is not a diet this is about changing my health. In this post, you will find (more…)

There are tons of reasons why a lifestyle change can be beneficial and for many people, it may even be necessary.The last two years were a whirlwind for me and during that time I have let my wellbeing suffer. During this time and even before, I have suffered from stomach aches, trouble sleeping and difficulty losing weight. (more…)
Spicy food is a slight obsession of mine. Whenever I eat out or even at home I’m always searching the menu for something with heat. Buffalo sauce tops the list of my favorites. I love wings, tenders, wraps, pizzas and anything else I can smother in the spicy sauce. My go to bar food are chicken tenders and while I love the spicy fried chicken, I do not love the amount of calories that comes with. Instead of going out to eat tonight for the glorious spicy hot fried tenders and having instant guilt and possibly a stomach ache from all the grease, I decided to take a stab at a healthier version at home.
My husband is from Michigan and on a trip back to visit his family we had Detroit style buffalo wings. There are many places around the states that serve this style of buffalo sauce and you likely has seen a similar version on a menu somewhere. It’s a tangier sweet and spicy (more…)
Grilling is almost like a summer olympic sport in my house. Ever spring I anticipate dustin off our weber and get out the charcoal. When the weather is finally warm enough, there is nothing better than a summer night spent grilling on the patio. Beer can chicken is something I always wanted to make. Don’t wait! Make it immediately before summer is gone. It is the juiciest chicken in the world. I cannot wait to make it again.
We recently had family in town. Since moving, we had not explored one of the oldest farmers markets in the country. It is a short drive from our new house. We wandered around the market with the plan to get groceries to grill out for dinner. A farmers market is an experience in itself. You can find so many different types of fruits, veggies, meats, trinket and this market had chickens and bunnies.
After visiting booth after booth to see the different items and prices we came across a butcher that had fabulous prices on free range organic whole chickens. I felt (more…)
After a week of amazing all-inclusive eating in Mexico, we needed a little detox coming back from our honeymoon. I didn’t want to do anything drastic. I just needed to do something to get back into a healthier lifestyle. This cabbage soup is low in calories. It
is loaded with yummy vegetables to help you naturally get to a healthier you.
I based this off a traditional diet cabbage soup. I kicked it up a notch by using bone broth to add additional nutrients into it and loaded up on the veggies for a natural detox. The week following our trip I limited my starches, cut out dairy, (more…)
You Can Disney as an Adult
Disney is not just for the kids. From the amazing restaurants, rides, shows and shopping to eating and drinking around the world, there’s a lot you can do and see as an adult and still enjoy Disney World. Here is a sample itinerary of what to do on a weekend trip to Disney without kids and tips for having the best short vacation kid free, adjust the itinerary by adding resort breaks or doing one park per day for a longer stay! At the bottom of this post is a list of activities to do outside the Disney Parks, my current favorite food items, resorts, and restaurants.
Fast Passes, Tickets, and Tips
Before we go into the itinerary, having fast passes will help you out with wait times A LOT! Reserve fast passes early, so you don’t miss out on your must do rides. If you stay at a Disney resort you can reserve fast passes up to 60 (more…)
I’m crazy about a good burger. I typically go for an old fashioned classic hamburger, but my husband loves cheeseburgers with all sorts of crazy toppings. On a rainy day when I was missing the summer sun, I decided to make a burger stuffed with cheese. One of these days the weather in the midwest is going to cooperate with me and we will be able to grill outside. Until then, my cast iron grill pan and I will be “grilling” away on our stove! Here’s a super easy dinner idea that anyone can make for a small or large party.
