Fit & Frugal: DIY Dishwasher Tabs

Lately, we’ve been trying to find the best ways to cut the cost of our grocery bigger dollar items to make room for our healthier eating wants and splurges.  First we switched over to using a laundry sauce.  It’s much nicer on my kids’ skin and I feel like it cleans my clothes much better […]

Fit Foodie: Nom nom

I think the thought that you can’t make old recipes when searching for healthier foods is just silly!  We gather up all the recipes that we have and menu plan.  The key is the ingredients.  It always has been.  Make the substitutions!  Find how to make it still yummy and lighter!  We had a pretty tasty…nom […]

ABFOL’s 31 day purge

I decided that it was time to re-organize!  The holidays and marathon training plus all else in life completely wrecked my system I had going.  We have never been completely unorganized but the clutter had definitely built up! I won’t lie.  The thought of organizing itself brings on the chaos!  You need to move and […]

Isabel turns 3!

Isabel is 3! This little girl.  I have to tell you this little one surely has been a blessing in our lives.  We have had many more moments of laughter.  She came into our world three years ago in California.  She loves to play dress up and puddle splash.  Christmas time was a big one […]

Beautiful Mess: The me I used to be

Every one from a distance and up close has seen one of the transformations that I have done in the last two years.  That’s far from all that I have done.  I have chosen to open up and really figure it all out.  Who am I?  What do I want?  How am I going to […]

Fit Foodie: A little all over the place!

Pasta with Asparagus I had an asparagus need.  It had been over 2 months since we had it and there’s just something about asparagus.  It’s weird because I never ever ever liked asparagus growing up.  Brussel sprouts and asparagus were my achilles heel! http://www.skinnytaste.com/2010/06/pasta-with-asparagus.html Mini Red Velvet Whoopie Pies http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/red-velvet-whoopie-pies-50400000133155/   Honey Whole Wheat Bread […]

Fit Foodie: Just no so… #hubbymade

I did not feel like it.  I just didn’t.  Thank goodness the hubby has been watching me!  I pulled myself together to make some of these but the star of the week, Sugar Snap Pea and Mushroom Sauté with Flank Steak, was ALL him!  It was the most tastiest, fantabulous dinner I have had in a […]

Fit Foodie: Next up!

So these recipes may be a stretch for the “fit foodie” title BUT not really!  Everything in the world of fit is dependent on the biggest variable there is…you.  With the right ingredient choices, a dish could have all the flavor you could imagine and still be healthy.  Eating healthy is far from boring.  You […]
