Welcome to my blog!

I have always loved to bake - mostly because I can follow instructions and recipes, and I have had good luck with my turnout. But, more recently, I have learned the joy of cooking. I love trying out new recipes, and I like to play with recipes to accommodate my finicky tastes.

I find inspiration in the healthy blogging community. I wanted to start a blog to share the recipes I have tried with you, but I also want to share with you my healthy living goals, plans, and actions in hopes to inspire some of you as well.

I love feedback, so please leave me comments, suggestions, and questions.

I hope you enjoy my blog!

Monday was hot, hot, hot!  I love it!  It reached 90 something degrees.  Yay summer!  I woke up at about 5:20 yesterday morning and did the Jillian Michaels 30-day shred level 1 video.  I was hungry right away when I woke up so I had a bowl of shredded wheat with skim milk.  I ate some walnuts while getting ready for work.  When I got to work I had a pear and some steel cut oats I had put in the slow cooker the night before.  Lunch was an Ezekiel tortilla with ground turkey and brie.  I then had my usual celery and cheese snack, some baby carrots, and an orange.  It was way too hot to cook, so I had a bowl of greek yogurt, and a bowl of oat bran with a half of banana mixed it.  I then stirred in a cup of organic wild blueberries and let it cool.  That wasn't super filling so I munched on some pretzels and almond butter.  I had to finish my night off with something sweet, so I had some pineapple wedges that I had cut up on Sunday.


  1. I am dying to try those ezekiel tortillas! =) How is the texture?

  2. I absolutely LOVE the Ezekiel tortillas. They are a little tougher than whole wheat tortillas, but I warm them up to soften them up. They also make wonderful crackers. Warm one up in the microwave for two minutes, and it becomes hard and crunchy - perfect for dipping into peanut butter!
