Be-You-Tifully Fit: GF Life

It’s hard to explain to people why I seemingly “try all the fads”.  When Adrian and I first started down our lifestyle change, it was with the thoughts of just swapping for healthier choices.  We choose fresh veggies over canned and less pasta/bread.  After that, we moved to “eating clean”.  Attempted paleo meals here and […]

Fit Foodie: Crazy busy

New scheduling and the holidays have made my menu plans really…well…meh.  I am struggling to remember to defrost meat before heading out for the first half of the day and then when I get back, I’m realizing that I simply do not have enough time to make it work.  One of these days I will […]

Fit Foodie: From 6 to 3

Who would’ve known that it would be ridiculously hard going from our cooking for the 6 of us to my husband, baby bear and myself???  I have way too much food leftover and planned way too many meals.  Gosh… I thought I had gotten better with this estimation but my veggies going bad in the […]
