Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Oat Chocolate Chip Cookies

Healthy eating is great and all, but sometimes I need a little sweet treat at the end of the day. I love these Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Oat Chocolate Chip Cookies because they definitely fill that sweet tooth, but they really aren’t going to break your whole diet. They’re gluten and dairy free while being really quite filling for a cookie. There’s no mindless snacking with these. One cookie fits the bill.  This recipe doesn’t make a lot – literally like 9 cookies – but that’s is a huge help when it comes to portion control. Like I said, I really do...

Heathy Living Market haul

Changing our diet and way of eating has definitely changed our way of shopping. The Arbonne detox (and every healthy eating plan) requires keeping a lot of fruits and veggies on hand for meals and snacks. We’ve been going through a ton of fruit lately so I wanted to show what we buy in a week when it comes to buying produce.  Hadley and I stopped at Healthy Living Market here in Saratoga yesterday before her gymnastics class. While many people can get intimidated by the prospect of shopping at a place like Healthy Living or Whole Foods (many...

Turkey Quinoa Spinach Soup

Well, that nice weather was fun while it lasted! We went from almost 70 degrees on a few days and running around the backyard in t-shirts to very blustery, windy weather here in Upstate New York.

With healthy dinners in full swing, this Turkey Quinoa Spinach Soup is a home run. It’s paleo and Arbonne detox friendly. Best of all, it actually fills you up!  When it comes to healthy dinners,...

Mixed Berry Coconut Acai Bowl

I’ve been looking in all our local supermarkets for Acai packets, which come in the freezer section. They are small pouches with Acai (pronounced aaaah – SIGH – EE), which is a small berry that people call a superfood. Right now, there’s not a ton of conclusive research on its health benefits, but according to the Mayo Clinic, it does have the highest amount of antioxidants over any commonly-eaten berry so still really great!  I’m always looking for a delicious, healthy breakfast and this recipe doesn’t disappoint. It also doesn’t hurt that its really pretty as well. Acai bowls...

Breaking down the Arbonne Detox – 30 Days to Healthy Living and Beyond

  First let me say, I’m a normal person. I don’t randomly give up a ton of things for fun. I like my sweets and glass of wine in the evening, but I knew that at this point in my life, I needed a change. I was feeling tired, sluggish and just generally crappy about myself. Enter the Arbonne detox.  As I mentioned before, I’ve shifted my focus of eating. There are definitely pros and cons to any eating plan, but after researching a few out there, I found this one to work the best with my lifestyle. At...
