Ultimate Reset – Day 11

So, Day 11.  That means I’m half way through this journey.  Both my husband and I have been remarking how much better we feel.  We plan on continuing to make most of the recipes that we’ve tried (ok, other than swiss chard… that was my first, and last, steamed swiss chard experience.. buy hey, no one […]

Ultimate Reset – Day 10

Well I think I picked a good time of year to do the Ultimate Reset.  It’s fall… and fall is great for soup.  What I like about these soup recipes is that they’re simple, and they have very few ingredients. I do also make my own hot sauce.  A friend of mine at work taught […]

Ultimate Reset – Day 9

So, there are several questions I’ve been asked about the Ultimate Reset so far.  I figured I could address them all here. First, isn’t it hard to not eat meat & dairy?  My answer is … not really.  If I wasn’t adding some meat items to the menu for the kids, I don’t think I’d […]

Ultimate Reset – Day 8

“Things you are passionate about are not random, they are your calling” – Fabienne Fredrickson I thought that was a great quote for the day.  I feel so passionate about the health of my family, and I feel so motivated by the Ultimate Reset now that I’m heading towards my half-way point.  That’s really why […]

Ultimate Reset – Day 7

Isn’t it funny, that this is supposed to be so “hard”.. but I’m already dreading when it’s going to be over?  So far this journey has been really great for me.  I feel like I have more energy in the day.  I have spent more quality time with my kids, and my husband, and feel […]

Ultimate Reset – Day 6

Day 6 of the Ultimate Reset and… today I just have to talk about food.  This soup I made for dinner tonight (and lunch tomorrow) was AMAZING.  My husband raved about it and even the kids liked it.  It seemed creamy, but there’s no cream in it.  The creaminess comes from the cashews.. who knew?!  […]

Ultimate Reset – Day 5

I have been trying to be very aware of how I feel on the Ultimate Reset so far.  So, I’m glad I have this blog to sort of write it all down. First, day 3 was the only tough one.. I was really tired.  After day 3 I started getting a ton of energy… real […]

Ultimate Reset – Day 4

Day 4… and I’m getting my energy back!  I’m really sticking to plan.  I feel like the structure of this makes it easy to stick too.  Also, my family seems to really love the food!  I got my husband to eat quinoa last night.  For real!  He never liked it before, but I think when […]

Ultimate Reset – Day 3

Ok so Day 3 is supposed to be tough.  I do have to admit, I was tired.  Like walking-around-like-a-zombie tired.  But, I did do a workout at lunch which actually made me feel better.  But when it was about 9:40 and I was watching my favorite show, I could have used toothpicks to keep my […]

Ultimate Reset – Day 2

Well, I’m through Day 2.  How do I feel?  Pretty darn good so far.  I felt a bit tired before dinner, but after I ate I felt better.  I did spend a lot of my day prepping for my lunch tomorrow (to take to work) and I made rice for the sushi rolls I’m supposed […]
