Newsflash: You’re an adult.

Can we get real here for a minute? You are an adult. (Really. Even if it doesn't feel like it.) Part of being a grown up human being with a body is taking care of said body. "I don't like exercise." "Working out is boring." "I don't have time to cook." "I don't like the… Continue reading Newsflash: You’re an adult.

Culinary Escapades

This week we tried a vegan pulled "pork" sandwich that was featured on Tasty Vegetarian's facebook page. WOW. The flavors did not disappoint, however the jackfruit, was ...messy. (To put it mildly.) Here's the video, if you are interested: It was very tasty, but sadly, we were missing an ingredient so a trip to the… Continue reading Culinary Escapades

Food. ALL. THE. FOOD.

I love cooking and I love food. One thing that this venture into meatless eating has provided is the opportunity and motivation to find new yummy dishes! This last week did not disappoint! (Just try not to lick your screen!)       I have finally given up on turmeric. I have tried (about 10… Continue reading Food. ALL. THE. FOOD.

Food Adventuring

A question I got was "So, what are you going to actually EAT if you go vegetarian?" All of the things. You know, except for things with a face. In cattle country (aka Texas), it seems like going vegetarian is just crazy. Seriously, though - there are SO many whole food, plant-based items to eat -… Continue reading Food Adventuring

Anticipation

I've always been afraid of it. I don't really know why. Frequently maligned and mocked things can come across as scary. It was with great trepidation I even gathered the courage to... put it in my grocery cart. But I did it. Steeling myself as I reached for what I assumed was gelatinous goo, I… Continue reading Anticipation

Veggietales

I'm not a big fan of sticking a toe in the water. With most things, I'm a jump right in kind of gal. Over the years I've played around with various levels of vegetarianism, and was for a solid year shortly after high school. (Going to Mexico and seeing open air meat markets the summer… Continue reading Veggietales

Inspiration

Feeling a little blah after the holidays I've been not so inspired to write lately, about food, fitness or anything else. I have officially stopped working at the gym (my choice, all good) and have been getting into the new routine working out and doing the mom thing. A friend of mine started a blog Fiftytwoin2017 in which… Continue reading Inspiration

Importance

The topic of nutrition has been brewing in my mind for the past couple of weeks, and then today's one word prompt of Healthy popped up. Last night I was watching the documentary Sugar Coated on Netflix.  And in church this morning, part of the sermon addressed time; that which we deem important we will make… Continue reading Importance

Attitude

You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink. Same thing goes for 3 year old boys and food. I've been thinking a lot about my attitude and how it's pretty much stunk up the place lately. We I am having (ha, ha!) trouble at times with my son and food,… Continue reading Attitude
