A Splendid Saturday!

The pedicure hasn’t happened yet because this morning we opted to go to a local farm (a farm I grew up going to for fresh fruits and veggies no less) to pick some strawberries! Then, we headed to the water to gather some rocks (smoothed by the salt water!) for a wedding project. So I did get my Vitamin D, plus I got super sweet, fresh berries out of it and one more thing checked off the wedding to-do list! That’s way more important than a pedicure 🙂

Tonight is Dead/Phish night at a local venue, and we will of course be heading to that, so I’ll be dancing my way around, enjoying a great Saturday night after a splendid Saturday!

Live the life you love. I promise, you can do it. Live your life by d e s i g n, not d e f a u l t.

Our delicious strawberry harvest! I could eat all of these RIGHT NOW… but I won’t… I will exercise some self control…

What an outstanding day so far… how is yours going?

Sunday Shakeology – Strawberry Mojito

Confession: my mind transports me to a tropical locale when I drink this. So light, crisp and refreshing, I can’t help but feel the breeze and the palm trees swaying!

Sit back, relax, and let your Shakeology transport you to a tropical destination!

I could drink this every day!


Sunday Shakeology – Chocolate Covered Strawberry

Don’t we all love a chocolate covered strawberry? I know I certainly do! In the months where fresh strawberries are abundant, I always buy plenty. In the colder months, frozen can do. I always prefer fresh over frozen, but both work!


There is no shortage of reasons to indulge in strawberries, but did you know they help boost immunity? They also promote eye health, can help fight cancer, help keep your skin baby smooth, and fight bad cholesterol. These little beauties are full of reasons to enjoy them!


Saturday Snack Spotlight – Strawberry and Pistachio FroYo Bark

Okay so…. I came across this recipe in a 21 Day Fix Group… and let’s just say that it definitely caught my attention. For one, because I am a sucker for anything strawberry, but also because the ingredients list seems like it would be a sensible splurge for when you just need that something sweet and indulgent to satisfy a craving while not completely derailing your nutritional efforts.

Despite having somewhat of a sweet tooth now, I try to find the balance between satiating my sweet tooth and being mindful of my health/Diabetes. I feel like this achieves that.

I’m gonna caution you though… this stuff has addictive qualities to it, at least for me. Proceed with caution! 🙂

If you try it, let me know what you think! 🙂

Sunday Shakeology – Strawberry Cranberry Chill

Today’s Shakeology recipe is super refreshing. I love cranberry juice, and I know it has several health benefits too! Health benefits from Cranberry Juice includes relief from urinary tract infection, respiratory disorders, kidney stones, cancer, and heart disease. It is also beneficial in preventing stomach disorders and Diabetes, as well as gum diseases caused by dental plaque. Phytonutrients, which are naturally derived plant compounds, are present in cranberries and have been found to prevent a wide range of health problems. These tart berries are a super addition to your nutrition!
