How did this happen?  I’m pretty good at being a football mom and a soccer mom, but now I am a dance mom… Feeling a bit out of my element as I get my 4 year old daughter ready for her dance recital.  The recital is in June, but we have already been consumed with …
If you hang around my house for any amount of time, one of the things you will inevitably hear from my 4 year old daughter is “Can I have a popsicle?”.  Baby girl is obsessed with them.  I switched to a healthier version a while ago, but I decided to take it one step further …
I cheated a bit this weekend, so today I was ready to get back on track! After a walk and a strength training DVD I made up a batch of my superfood soup! There are many super foods that you can throw into this basic soup recipe.  A super food is a nutrient rich food …

If you are in the trenches of motherhood, like I am, you may be wondering if your little people are paying attention to all the lessons that you are trying to teach them day in and day out!  You are sure that your words are going in one ear and out the other.  You are …
Sometimes I run out of time, ideas, or motivation, but I still want to eat a healthy dinner.  I have been making a big batch of sweet potato spirals to keep on hand for dinners.  The spirals store easily in the refrigerator and stay fresh for days.  I simply cook them up in a pan …
