Healthy Waffles to Start Your Day Off Right

If you’re looking for a healthy waffle to start your day, it’s not going to be found in the freezer section of the grocery store. My husband used to pop a waffle or 2 in the toaster each morning. He was really just looking for something sweet and tasty to start the day. I understood…

Stress and Dental Health

One of the things that stresses me out is dental issues. Unfortunately, one of the things that results from stress… is Dental issues. It’s a fun little circle to be in. My issues aren’t major, by any means… so I’m grateful for that. The problem that I do have is mostly related to stress induced…

The 7 Ways My Yoga Practice Has Changed My Life

My yoga practice is mine, all mine… and it’s completely changed my life, without much effort at all. I guess I’ve always had the wrong idea about what yoga was and what it did for you.  I assumed it was better in a structured way, in a classroom setting, or much worse, a heated, stuffy…

The Perfectly Sweet and Fluffy Pizza Crust Made Easy

Since quarantine began, I’ve been looking for the perfect Pizza Crust recipe. I refused to believe that we would not have a great pizza again, until things opened back up.  Suffice to say, my family had pizza more after quarantine started than we ever did before. Sure, you can buy a frozen pizza… but you’ll…

What Started this Health Inspiration Journey?

I’ve been asked a few times, what started all of this? What’s the reason for the health inspiration? I guess it’s not common knowledge that I actually started classes in Holistic Nutrition through Clayton College back in 2010, until the school temporarily closed and I lost all of my education investment. I have since taken…

Grateful to Inspire

The last month or 57 (it feels) I have been working on an extensive remodel in our kitchen. It was a last minute decision, to literally rip out the ceiling and roof, raising things up and giving me my dream kitchen. I’ll share more photos and info on that soon. But this morning I woke…

Easing In To Meditation

I remember very specifically telling my friend, “oh no, I can’t meditate, I feel like I’m suffocating when I try”. That seems silly to me now, but it was true.  I would sit down to meditate, and focus on my breath, and I would feel like an elephant was sitting on my chest. I just…

Probiotic Oral Health Care

I have a terrible fear of Dentists. I just hate that scary permanence of drilling into the only teeth you get, damaging the only bones in your body that don’t just heal. I had a dentist that I loved and trusted. Him and his loving family left the states and moved to another country to…

Why Yoga?

I HATE exercising.  Well, technically I just hate cardio. I’m all for exercise that makes me feel good and strong, while also making me feel like I’m not doing much. Yeah, I’m the laziest exerciser ever! I’ve forced myself onto ellipticals and treadmills. I’ve forced myself to do sit ups, the devils creation for sure. …

This Isn’t a Diet

What is eating healthy? According to some people, it’s avoiding dairy, or meat. Other people believe that it’s about putting as much dairy or meat in your diet as possible and avoiding all the fruit.  To some people, it’s restricting your diet to a low calorie count, to include sugar free products or processed junk,…

The Last Vaccine I’ll Ever Have

Anyone who knows me knows that I had shingles.  I’m an open book… I don’t keep anything to myself.  *Shock* Although… for the record, Shingles is a stupid and ugly name and as someone who has installed roofing… I hate the term.  So, I have renamed MY shingles to “sparkles”… mostly because I like things…

The Best Tasting Lentil Soup for Gut Health

I’ve been talking about this soup for a while. It started as just a simple lentil soup. My husband would order a side of lentil soup every time we would eat out at one of our favorite restaurants.   It was a pretty basic soup, obviously had lentils, celery and cumin in it… but other than…

Vitamins and Nutrients

There are many theories about vitamins. Some studies say they do nothing. Some say that a good vitamin will improve your health. You can buy vitamins for very little, or you can spend as much as a car payment on your monthly packs. So, what do you do? I’m not a doctor… for all I…

The Lasagna Pie

Oh, I was so excited about this one.  I was scrolling through social media when I saw a spring form cake pan used for an italian dish. It wasn’t lasagna for them, but that’s how I saw it! Yummy AND fun! Challenge Accepted!! I will admit that a good portion of my meal ideas come…

It’s MY Yoga Practice

I tried hot yoga one time. I say one time… it was actually 2 weeks of hell. Literally, why does anyone subject themselves to the heat and smell of a hot yoga center?  I did… every day for 2 weeks.  My friend said that I would learn to love it.  Instead, I think I plotted…

Why Organic Beef?

I was actually a vegetarian for almost a year. Most of that time, I was vegan. I spent a couple weeks feeling great, and then I started having some delightful health effects… my hair was falling out, I was tired all the time… etc. Blech…. I couldn’t do it. I’ve also rounded it out with…

The Best Hearty Beef Stew

When I was a kid, my mom used to make us beef stew occasionally.  When I grew up, I got my hands on that recipe, and realized…. I didn’t much care for it.  Maybe my taste buds refined, I’m not positive.  The original recipe was simple… Cook stew meat (ew), then add large chunks of…
