Hello friends and happy Wednesday!   I thought I’d just check in with another What I Ate Wednesday post.  I haven’t done one in awhile but I always enjoy them. Y’all keep me accountable and on track with healthy eating!   I started my day out with an egg and spinach sandwich on gluten-free toast.  Not the most aesthetically-pleasing breakfast, but it was tasty nonetheless!

3 Quick and Healthy Breakfasts with Veggies

Anyone that knows me knows I love breakfast!  I’m one of those people that literally can’t function without  it. It’s my favorite meal of the day!

What I’m Doing to Treat Adult Hormonal Acne Naturally

  Whiteheads, blackheads and cystic acne- I’ve had it all. Often all at the same time. I use to long for the day I would finally be grown up, not so I could get my dream job, buy a house, or travel the world, but so my acne would finally disappear. Well, I’m 27 and I’m still waiting for that day. Throughout my teenage years, I tried nearly every product at my local drug and department stores. Many of them…
