Workout Songs I’m Digging Right Now

Is it just me, or are there suddenly a bunch of really fun songs coming out? The right music can really help you have a great workout, and lately these songs have been showing up a lot in my playlist.

First up, It’s All About That Base by Meghan Trainor. The first time I saw this video I thought it was a snarky joke, but then about a minute in I decided that I didn’t care if it was a joke or not, it was fun! I also love the message. Yes, of course I absolutely believe we should

Wednesday Real Food Recipe – How to Make Healthy Pizza

What is your favorite kind of pizza? Do you know how to make healthy pizza? We adore pizza at our house, and my girls love when they get to make their own and choose their own toppings. Lots of people have asked for my recipe and how we do this, so back in July I wrote a guest post for the lovely people at Mom It Forward showing you how we do it and giving you a delicious pizza crust recipe. Go check that recipe out here.

How to Build a Healthier Pizza

But wait, there’s more! You get a bonus tip today! With the kids just starting back to school, healthy school lunch ideas have been on my mind. Today for lunch my daughter took a make-your-own pizza kit. Here’s how we did it: The last time we made pizza for dinner, I rolled out a few extra crusts, brushed them with olive oil, and then baked until just barely turning golden on top. After they cooled, I cut them in wedges and threw them in the freezer. All leftover pizza sauce went into ice cube trays, and then the sauce cubes into a zipper bag in the freezer. Last night we grabbed a handful of pizza crust wedges and 2-3 sauce cubes, and put them in the fridge to defrost. We also grated a little cheese and had that ready to go, with some carrots, cucumber, and pineapple to go on the side. Today at lunch she just used a spoon to scoop a little pizza sauce onto a crust wedge, sprinkle a little cheese, and voila! Pizza! It’s cold, but she doesn’t seem to mind, and said several times how excited she was to eat lunch today, “Because it’s going to be so mmmmmm, mmmmmm, delicious!” 


Oh, summer. Summer! Does anyone else feel like they need to just stop for a moment and breathe? This summer has been absolutely amazing, full of the important things like Hawaiian sunrises, yoga in the car, graduations, swimming lessons, princesses, just chillin’, lots of reasons to put on swimsuits, vacations, loads and loads of family, and buckets of fun. So, so, so very much fun! This summer has been everything that a perfect summer should be, and then some. And I’m very ready for school to start again!

I am looking forward to

Summing Up June

Whoa guys, what just happened? The past two weeks have felt so very busy to me, like I could barely keep my head above water. This poor blog was certainly ignored. (Blowing dust off the pages) And yet, looking back, I can’t tell you what I have been doing to be so much more busy than normal. In fact, the beginning of June pretty much took every once of energy and concentration I had to all my usual stuff in, plan for our trip, and everything else that life just throws at you. And maybe that’s it? Maybe I just ran out of gas, and so time slowed down and so did I.



In any case,

Screaming Deal on a Blendtec Blender

Oh, the Blendtec blender. The king (or queen) of all blenders. A Blendtec blender is arguably the best blender of all time, and I’ve wanted one for years, but it has just simply not been in the budget.

It’s no secret I’m a smoothie lover (In fact, here is my Pinterest smoothie board, you should follow me!). For years the majority of my breakfasts have been made up of a cup of green deliciousness, packed with as much nutrition as I can get in there. My latest love involves
