A weekend filled with great food, fabulous cocktails, lots of laughs and a wonderful friend. There’s no better place than the good old Windy City to enjoy a girls’ (foodie) weekend!
My dear friend Kelly, over at Nosh and Nourish have been on several press trips together and we have been friends for years. When we realized we were both going to visit Now Foods in Illinois, we decided to extend our business trip and spend the weekend relaxing and touring all of the amazing r
Spanish Chicken and Rice and Salmon Nicoise Salad are just a couple of the delicious, nutritious dishes we have featured on this week’s meal plan.
As we hold onto the last few weeks of summer, let’s enjoy as many of the delicious, fresh fruits and vegetables as we can. I know so many people started school already, but I am still in full force summer mode.
Anyone out there ready for apples and pumpkins? Or you still like your peaches, corn and watermelon?
Refreshing, healthy, delicious and relaxing, this Blueberry Lavender Smoothie is plant-based and completely stress-free.
There is something about lavender that just makes me happy. The fragrance reminds me of simpler times as a young girl visiting my grandmother. She had these lavender soaps in her bathroom and I always loved the smell. It just smelled clean and fresh.
I recently visited my local Savory Spice Shop and I felt like a kid in a candy store.
Healthy dishes that are simple to make! Here is this week’s healthy meal plan including a shopping list and preparation tips to simplify your life.
I have to say, this week’s dishes are extraordinary. I LOVE flatbread so that Summer Flatbread with Strawberries Mango and Avocado (I am leaving off the bacon and goat cheese) is what I am starting with this week. Those flavors sound incredible!
I have to say, my Thai Black Bean Veggie Burger is one of my favorites too.
This delightful vegan dish is packed with wonderful flavors and makes a hearty, meatless dish.
I was so excited to get my friend Rebecca from Foodie with Family new cookbook, Not Your Mama’s Canning Book. It is filled with creative, delicious recipes and amazing pictures. It took me a while to pick which one I wanted to make first and share with you guys. There were so many to choose from! And I have never canned anything before, so this was all new to me.
I had such a wonderful trip last week visiting NOW® headquarters in Bloomingdale, Illinois. I was thoroughly impressed by the NOW® team’s integrity and determination to create products that help people lead healthier lives.
Take a look at their core values. It’s pretty impressive.

Can you believe it’s already August? The summer has flown by and I know so many of you are either headed back to school soon or have already started. That is CRAZY! Thankfully we still have a whole month left and I am hanging on to e
These bars are lightened up slightly and are every bit a perfect summer treat!
Let me start off by saying, everyone in the house LOVED these bars.
I have already disclosed this many times, but here it goes again.
I do not like cheesecake. At all. Not even a little.
The reason? I don’t like cream cheese. I don’t like the taste, the smell, the texture…
But that’s why I like these bars, because I cut that cream-cheese-smell-and-tast
It’s time to get ready for next week’s healthy meals! Here are some nutritious, wholesome and delicious meals to get you on track.
Greetings from The Windy City!
I have been here since Thursday morning visiting Now Foods at their headquarters. It was such a great experience and I can’t wait to share more with you. Now I am staying the weekend in downtown Chicago with my dear friend Kelly, from Nosh and Nourish and we are having a blast! I can’t wait to share
These long hot days of summer make me thirsty. You know how I love my water and even my naturally flavored water, but there is something about a warm summer night that makes me crave a cocktail. Not one that is loaded with sugar and tons of calories, but one that is lightly sweet and equally refreshing.
And let’s be honest, there are some days that I spend all day with my children and I JUST NEED A COCKTAIL. Keeping it real here, folks.
