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 […]

Ultimate Reset – Day 1

So I’ve made it through the first day and already I found a new recipe that I love… a marinade for salmon.  This would be more impressive if you all knew my dislike of salmon.  The fact that not only did I eat it, but I also enjoyed every bit.. well that makes it stand […]

Ultimate Reset – Preparation Day

I’m sleepy… like all the time.  So when I wake up I have coffee.  I usually have another cup at work.  When I get home from work, I start job #2 – Mommyhood.  I’m usually a bit stressed at this point and often would like a glass of wine while preparing dinner to “relax”.  Then […]

Coconut Roasted Chicken and Veggies with Rice

I’m always looking for simple meals that are well-rounded but have that special je ne sais quoi.    The kind of recipe that you serve someone and they ask what’s in it.  This started as a recipe that my friend described to me at work.  I tweaked it a little and served it to company the […]

Cucumber and Feta Salad

I seriously love cucumbers.  I can eat them plain, pickled, with salt, in a salad.. doesn’t matter.  They’re just good stuff.  I sort of threw this salad together and had it with some grilled chicken the other night.  Perfect summer meal! Cucumber and Feta Salad 2 medium cucumbers, diced 1/2 of a large red onion, […]

Pesto Tortellini with Chicken

How have I not blogged this recipe?  I’ve probably made it a hundred times.  My father in law brought it up as one of his favorites.  So, that got my wheels churning to send this great one along.  It’s a balanced combination of pasta, chicken, and veggies. Pesto Tortellini with Chicken 2 tsp olive oil […]

Crock Pot Pulled Pork

A crock pot is a working Mom’s best friend.  Whenever I have to travel for work for the day, I whip out the old slow cooker and when I come home from over 2 hours of driving, dinner is ready.  I’ve made chicken, beef, and veggies all in my crock pot.  However I think one […]
