Getting Healthy

As much as I prefer talking overall health, not focusing solely on weight-loss, I think it might help someone to hear my story. Being a healthy weight really is very important. Being overweight can carry numerous health consequences such as high blood pressure, joint pain, fatigue, etc.  Both pregnancies I’ve had, I’ve gained about 50 […]

Apple Cinnamon French Toast Casserole

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. So when I found this recipe, I decided to create my own little dairy-free variation of it. My kids LOVED it. My baby was even licking the crumbs off her high chair! (Good thing it was clean!) Ingredients: 5 c of whole wheat bread cut into small squares […]

Hey Half-Marathon, Here I Come!
