Amo la comida Mexicana!

I have a thing for eating out AND honestly who doesn’t? However, with ensuring we choose healthy food options (most of the time) and save money towards more important things like traveling the world, my partner and I opt to eat in most of the time. BUT…there’s always date nights and these tend to get…

Mexican & Chill

   It’s Meatless Monday! Ok ok, so I had tuna in my salad for lunch BUT overall I’ve done well today. I started off the day with a large bottle of water to get everything flowing within and then breakfast followed up nicely. A nice cup of oatmeal (plain is just fine for me) along…

Peanut, Peanut Butter 

So, apparently my new favorite snack is peanut butter by the jar. Oh, not just any peanut butter but Skippy’s natural peanut butter.  I recently discovered this new fetish while laying in bed craving everything sweet you can think of: fried Oreos, cheesecake, doughnuts, you name it, I want it! It’s pure torture; It’s like…

It’s not cloudy BUT there’s Meatballs!

Let’s Eat

   What’s better than Shrimp? Now, let me ask you. What’s better than Shrimp and Wine? Give up?  A Rice bowl (or plate) with Garlic Shrimp, Black beans, Mango Avocado salsa, GreenMarket Hot Sauce and White Wine! PS…You can’t go wrong with a Trader Joe’s select.  Are you overwhelmed yet? Great 🙂 Everyone could use…

Body & Soul

   Ah, food! It’s like I live for payday to shop at Whole Foods while others go shop for shoes. Ha, classic! I recently decided it was time to get back on track with my health and by that I mean mind, body and soul. We all hit a wall at times but we must…

Long Live Lentils 

   A go-to of mine when payday isn’t quite around the corner and I need a healthy & hearty meal, lentils. They’re packed with protein and if you add a little quinoa you’re golden! Of course, I like to jazz mine up a bit and throw in some fresh basil, red peppers & a little…

On the Road to Clean Eating: Day 10

There’s something wonderful about sticking with something that you start. It’s a rewarding feeling that stems from within when you put your all, a full 100% into doing something for yourself. I set off on the BuzzFeed 14 Day Clean Eating Challenge 10 days ago and it has been one of the best things I…
