Pro Yo Frozen Yogurt and Giveaway

ProYoFrozen Yogurt

I am normally not a "frozen yogurt" gal, in fact, I really don't eat the stuff.  However, I have been introduced to ProYo Frozen Yogurt and I think I might have found a new "go-to" quick snack for after running {especially on hot days}. *Disclaimer - I received product coupons for Pro Yo for my review.  As always my opinion is my own and honest ♥ "ProYo a premium  low-fat frozen treat made with creamy probiotic yogurt packed with 20 grams of protein per handy tube and is gluten-free, Continue Reading...

Thanksgiving Leftovers Make For A Winter Lasagna

Winter Lasagna

What to do with the Thanksgiving leftovers?  Well, we make turkey and cranberry sandwiches, or turkey soup.  Or maybe something in the slow cooker.  A few days after Thanksgiving had me wanting something different.  I was all "turkied" out and wanted some comfort food that did not include mashed potatoes.  I had a great butternut squash and sweet potato bowl in the fridge and that would make for a great Winter Lasagna.  Using the squash and potato mixture together in the lasagna would help make Continue Reading...

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.  Wow, what a fast month this was.  Are we really just a month away from Christmas and then we head into 2015?  With all the busy and running around the end of the year, I want to stay as healthy as I can and keep my body running both inside and out.  We are eating some pretty heavy foods and we are dabbling and nibbling here and there.  Sooner or later, it will catch up with us.  Staying energized and bloat free is what I am hoping to do.  I can with the help of Continue Reading...
