Because my life is crazy, this is going to be a post minus photos. Go ahead and thank me. I know that I am not so great in the photography department.
I have begun making greek yogurt in a crock pot. I love it. It is so much cheaper, and so much healthier. Now if I could just find a local dairy farm it would be even better. Anyone in Southern MN have any ideas for me?
With it being made in the crock pot, there really is hardly any work at all. It takes about 10 minutes of actual work time. Maybe less. The crock pot portion spans many hours, though. I found the recipe over at Eating From The Ground Up. You should go check it out. Alana has a wonderful blog that I’ve spent hours reading. She is also a
I want to start this post off with a bit of an update. Last week I posted about water. I was looking for solutions on how to drink more of it. Remember? Sure you do!
So I was at Walmart over the weekend and I found this cup for $5. I had a bit of leftover birthday money, so I bought it. And… I LOVE IT! I easily refill it 3 or 4 times a day. That’s a lot of water, people! I love that I only have to do it 3 or 4 times, it is much more convenient for me than having to refill after every 10 oz, like before.

Tonight for dinner we are eating sloppy joes. This recipe is not completely clean, though I still think it is healthy. And it is very versatile, change it up any way you want!

I forgot to buy them, and only had one small one left in the pantry. oops!), red pepper, celery, garlic, and carrot. This is easy to change as you desire. Add more veggies, cut some out completely, change the red pepper for green, use onion or garlic powder instead of fresh. I just looked in my fridge and used what I had on hand.
In a large skillet I melted a tsp or so of coconut oil,
and cooked the veggies on medium heat for
Ever since Tiffany over at The Gracious Pantry posted her recipe for coconut banana ice cream I have been making it. A lot. The Husband is in love with ice cream, as are my kids. Me, I could take it or leave it. I’d rather eat chips. Barbeque, if you have to know the kind. Anyway. Back to the ice cream. Tiffany’s recipe is so simple, and it is actually healthy!
Since I started working out I have been struggling to get enough protein. And I have a big ole bag of chocolate protein powder in my cabinet. I’ve seen recipes for chocolate banana ice cream, by adding cocoa powder. And I wondered what it would be like if instead of cocoa I added the protein powder. Then, after I added the protein powder I looked around and saw a jar of almonds on
