I LOVE Salads!!! I will be featuring a new “Salad of the Week” every week starting now! For my first Salad of the Week, here is the Autumn Healthy 8 Salad, courtesy of Trader Joe’s. Again, if you don’t have a Trader Joe’s in your neighborhood, you are missing out, and should move! No, just kidding, but Trader Joe’s is seriously...

Halloween is right around the corner (next week to be exact!) which means lots of sweets & treats! There are so many great ideas on Pinterest– the perfect inspiration for any holiday! I decided it was best to go the simple + healthy route. Check out these super cute, fun & festive, yet HEALTHY Halloween Treats that each take only 4 ingredients or less!...

Beautiful, Healthy & Delicious Dinner!   These stuffed peppers are not only beautiful to look at- they are also healthy and delicious! This makes for a quick and easy dinner, and you might even have leftovers for lunch the next day! The flavors in this recipe are very simple because I am a total wimp when it comes to spices! With that being said, feel free...

School Picture Day was coming up and Dylan was in desperate need of a cute haircut (literally his hair was sticking out in all directions!) so I took him to my favorite place for a kids haircut in San Diego- Chloe’s Carousel. Chloe’s Carousel is the perfect place to take your kids for their next haircut. They specialize in children’s salon services but they...

3 Day Refresh While I had an amazing time this past weekend visiting Chicago, I stepped on the scale this morning and was NOT happy! Ok yes- I ate several “cheat” meals (hello deep dish pizza!), drinks & desserts, combined with my lack of working out… and BOOM! I am now 4 pounds heavier than I was last week- AHHHH! It’s definitely time...

Here is the deal: Quinoa is referred to as the “Supergrain of the Future.” It originated in the Andean region of Peru, Bolovia, Ecuador, and Colombia, where it was first domesticated for human consumption 3,000 to 4,000...

Pizza + Burgers = Pizza Burger Sliders! It’s Sunday Funday! The best day for football, family, friends, and FOOD!!!  While we usually eat healthy meals throughout the week, when the weekend rolls around, it’s okay to splurge a little bit! Dylan and I love pizza and we love burgers so here is an AMAZING recipe for Pizza Burger Sliders! You can even omit...

If I could pick one luxury service to get for the rest of my life, it would definitely be getting my nails done! I love myself a good mani/pedi. Also- I cannot paint my own nails! Like seriously, I can’t. I have tried several times and it is always an epic fail. I get more nail polish on the skin around my nails than on my actual nails! And it ends up looking...

Got Sneakers? Where I’m from (back on the East Coast), we call them “sneakers.”  Every time I say “sneakers” here in San Diego, some people look at me like I have 2 heads! Oh sorry- “Where did you get your tennis shoes?”  Sneakers, tennis shoes, or tennies if you want to sound fancy- they are the things you wear on your...

Get Your Pasta Fix with Prosciutto & Arugula Farfalle! There are some days when you just NEED a pasta fix! I try to limit carbs as much as possible, but I could never cut them out completely. This girl LOVES pasta (…and pizza, and potatoes, and garlic bread, haha!). I eat carbs in moderation, and have found there are plenty of healthy options when it comes...
