Easy & Delicious Lime ACV Drink

Easy & Delicious Lime ACV Drink

It seems like every health and fitness guru is touting the benefits of apple cider vinegar (ACV) drinks these days.  I’ve heard that ACV can treat acne, whiten teeth, increase weight loss, and even cure colds and allergies!

How to Make Health and Wellness Less Stressful

How to Make Health and Wellness Less Stressful

  I remember when I first started to become interested in healthy living.  I pored over books, articles, and magazines. It was so easy to become overwhelmed with all of the (sometimes contradictory) information that I was learning.  And then there was the issue of actually implementing what I had learned. I recall thinking, “Wow! I never knew being healthy was so stressful!”   You don’t have to live with that mindset my friend!  While I’m far from perfect, I’ve…

The somewhat-distressed wood also makes for a…

The Best Way to Store Tea

The Best Way to Store Tea

This past weekend I replenished my tea stock because I was running low on most of my favorites.  I thought I would snap a few pictures as I put it all away to show you the best way to store tea!  Tea needs to be stored in an airtight container in a cool, dark place for to stay fresh for as long as possible.  (Not that it lasts that long at my house…) I came up with this minimalist, low-cost…

Hello friends and happy Monday!  🙂 I mentioned recently that I meal plan a whole month’s worth of healthy meals at once.  I received a couple questions and comments on the topic, so I thought I’d give you a bit more of a behind-the-scenes look with a healthy grocery haul and what I plan to make with all of those yummy groceries!   Meal planning saves Hubby and I a ton of money each month and keeps me from making…

What I Ate Wednesday #2

Hey friends!  I’m back with another edition of What I Ate Wednesday.  I always like to snoop on what others are eating because it gives me some quick and easy meal ideas.  Recipes in cookbooks and fancy food blogs are drool-worthy, but I find that they often take too much time to prepare on a day-in-day-out basis.  So… What I Ate Wednesday to the rescue!   I started off my day bright and early with some sausage and spinach quiche….

Hey friends!  How are you on this fine Wednesday?  It’s been quiet around these parts, which almost never happens, so I’m soaking it in!  I’m happy to report that I’m feeling a little less run down too.  Maybe it was all the golden milk?  😉 Remember how I mentioned that I enjoy reading What I’m Loving Lately posts?  What I Ate Wednesday would definitely fall into that same category.  I remember in undergrad planning my grocery shopping days on Thursday…

Easy Golden Milk Recipe

Easy Golden Milk Recipe

Hi there! Hope you all are well! I’m still trying to fight off a cold over here. At least it looks like the weather is on my side today. It’s supposed to be in the mid-70s! You know how I love cold weather…  I recently decided to try out golden milk (or a turmeric latte, depending on who you ask) that I’ve seen making its rounds on social media. It’s actually been a part of Ayurvedic medicine for centuries but…

My Go-To Green Smoothie

My Go-To Green Smoothie

Hey y’all! Happy Monday!  I hope you had a great weekend. We changed plans at the last minute and ended up traveling home to spend time with family.  It was a fun weekend but I’m sad to report that now I’m feeling a bit under the weather. It’s been go-go-go around here recently and I think it’s starting to catch up with me. So it’s time to turn on some Netflix (Friends reruns, anyone?) and whip up something full of…
