28 Day Challenge and “Tuna” Salad

Counter Culture

I can’t believe it’s the middle of October! I usually feel a lot more prepared for the holidays by now. The fact that it was still over 100 degrees in Texas until the beginning of October has just really made the fall season fly by! Now..it’s the middle of October, which for me, means I [...]

Forks Over Knives Giveaway and Some of My Favorite Veggie Recipes!


I think I’m detoxing!  I haven’t had meat or dairy (maybe in minuscule un-noticeable portions) since the day after I wrote my FOK post.  Don’t even ask.  I had one last event that I had to get all meaty at, and let’s just say I paid the price.  Yuck!  But, since then, I’ve really been sick with [...]

Quinoa Tabbouleh and Vegan Chick Salad


I mentioned in a previous post that this hot summer weather makes me want to eat a little lighter…heavy meals just don’t sound that appealing to me…especially mid-day at lunchtime. I’m definitely still in that mode…and there is no sign of cooler weather anywhere in my near future…unfortunately. I made two yummy recipes today that [...]

“B”LT’s & Orange Sesame Kale Salad


We are about to watch the World Cup… GO USA !!!!!!!!!!! We’ve been hanging out at the pool all day and I was trying to think of something besides turkey sandwiches to serve the family for lunch.  It’s been a while since I made a BLT so I decided to whip some up “healthymamma” style. [...]
