Wellness Pillar Series: Sleep

Sleep is my favorite thing. Good sleep is the epitome of self-care. It is a time for your body to recharge and rest. In our life I have found that we all just have more fun when we are well rested. Before diving into our current sleep habits, it is very important to note that I am not a night...

Recipe: Best Bolognese

If our family had to pick a favorite type of food it would definitely be Italian! Michael’s nickname in my family is “Meatball” because his love of meatballs runs deep. Edie is the same, so she now goes by “Mini Meatball”. Italian is our thing! We adore this bolognese recipe and it is Evan’s favorite meal. Through our time in...

Recipe: Grilled Vegetables

This quarantine has been teaching me that I love simplicity. Simple meals done right. Also, I don’t like doing dishes. The grill has been one of my favorite ways to prepare and prep meals over this time at home. First, the weather here couldn’t be more perfect to grill. I look forward to going outside and cooking food for the...

I hope that if you try this one, you LOVE it. I remember that during our entire Whole 30 this was the recipe that was made the most by other people doing the Whole 30, too. It uses my most favorite nut butter: cashew! It is hard to choose a favorite nut and nut butter because I love them all....

Are you into eating chocolate ice cream smoothie bowls for breakfast? Cool, me, too. You are in good company. Starting the day with something sweet is it for me.

Recipe: Whole 30 Creamsicle Smoothie

This recipe name explains this smoothie perfectly! When we were growing up there was a frozen custard shop by my grandparents in Altoona, PA. It was called “The Meadows” and I still dream about the day I get to take the E’s there for the first time. They had a magical, swirled Dreamsicle. I would get mine with colored sprinkles...

Recipe: Whole 30 Coconut Cream Pie Smoothie

This is another recipe that was inspired by family. My grandmother’s favorite dessert was Coconut Cream pie. We grew up eating her favorite dessert on special occasions and this past year for my Mom’s birthday we mailed her one. Again, food brings us close to the one’s we love when we can’t be physically close to them. In my personal...

Recipe: Whole 30 Pumpkin Spiced Smoothie

Fall is definitely my favorite season. Not for the PSL, but for the sweet relief from the summer heat in Florida. We have this one day we celebrate in our house each year and it is the first day after summer where we open all the windows and the porch slider and let the cool air in. THAT is my...
