Eat Clean Challenge #4

I was doing some thrifting at Goodwill yesterday; well not actually thrifting, more so browsing the book section, treating it as a library and not planning on buying anything.  Sometimes I buy a book for my friend to Plant a Fitness Seed, but yesterday it was just the usual browsing of the books in the… Continue reading Eat Clean Challenge #4

Diet and Exercise Cults

I rented a book from the library, “Diet Cults,” and started reading it a few nights ago, and it was eye opening and has been hard to put down.

Acorn squash gives me magical powers. The first time I ever made it was a year ago in the Fall, when it was in season and on sale at the co-op.  I had the Ambiano blender ($70 Aldi vitamix knockoff that is very comparable which I’ve gotten a ton of use out of,) and was making… Continue reading Winter Eat Clean Meal Challenge #1

Clean Eating Challenge #2

I usually grocery shop once a week, as I like to see the weekly specials a grocer has (especially ALDI and the co-op) so I can get the best nutritonal value for my dollar, as mentioned in this blog from a few weeks ago. Everytime I go to ALDI, it seems like it’s a little buser… Continue reading Clean Eating Challenge #2
