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 […]

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, […]
