The Lazy Girl’s Clean Eating Tips

I’m pretty lazy when it comes to my diet, so I try to keep myself on track by making it easy for myself as much as possible.  That means buying ready to eat protein, veggies on the go and fruit. How do I do that you ask? A sample of my grocery list: 1 package…

I’ve Become a Purist

I know we look ridiculous in this photo.  Me and my boo… just chillin in Maui. It reminds me of the dreaminess we felt just hanging out on the hammock, soakin’ in the rays, walking, etc. Well, I wanted to talk about being pure and we look like purists here, in the most serene sense…

Hawaiian Eating…Should you diet on Vacation?

I just spent 7 beeeyoootiful days in Hawaii.  I left stressed out and I’m coming back with the Aloha Spirit.  Nothing like a vacation filled palm trees, beautiful sunsets and inviting people to take the stress right out of you.

Saturday is your friend! and so is Fiber :)

(Ihttp://www.hsph.harvard.edu/nutritionsource/fiber-table/)  I got 6 grams…

180 Degree Metabolism Diet Hoax or Not?

I love this … I did a post just a few days ago about the 180 Degree Metabolism Diet. Although originally I looked at the diet, and some of it made sense, I began to have my doubts after rereading the book and some of the websites. I can’t seem to find much evidence on…
