Bacon & Bok Choy Zoodles

I can’t believe I was a sceptic of Zoodles. I honestly never would have thought that they could taste so delicious. To the point of replacing pasta! If you’re trying to cut down on gluten and/or carbohydrates (either can cause inflammation for some of us), I am telling you… THIS IS THE WAY YOU DO IT! As Scott said yesterday, …

My Favorite Green Smoothie

I don’t know why I was afraid of green smoothies, for so long. I love mint chocolate-chip ice cream, so drinking a green frozen liquid shouldn’t have been an issue.

My Journey to Blonde

I’ve always had an extraordinary interest in trying new things with my hair. Not only because I get bored easily. But, it’s another excuse to express creativity.

It’s Not Your Fault ~ A Letter to Honey Bear
