As much as I love a sizzling steak now and then, I do try to be conscious of how much meat that we eat and make efforts to add more meatless options to our menu. At first I had difficulty with finding meals that were satisfying and filling, but over time I have accumulated a [...]

I'm always looking for quick breakfast options, especially for those dreaded mornings when I have to get up at 5:15 to be to work. On those early mornings I kept finding myself either:a.) Skipping breakfastb.) Buying unhealthy options at work (cheese & bacon loaded omelets)Both options are unhealthy, and the second was also lightening my [...]

By | 2016-11-16T13:52:24+00:00 May 16th, 2012|food, health|

In our household we take salad seriously.We don't make a salad with just some meager iceberg lettuce and boring shredded cheddar cheese in our household, but instead a decadent and loaded meal with veggies, fruits, nuts, delicious cheeses, flavor packed dressings and succulent meats. There are so many people that shudder when they think about salad and have this totally [...]

This past year we finally hunkered down and took the time and effort to build a raised garden.  We had talked about it years before but never really had the time to do it. One Saturday we woke up and set out to begin building our garden before it got too late in the season [...]
