Mila, Almond No-Blender Smoothie 1

I have more good news and bad news. The bad news is that we’re all so busy.  Who the heck has time to 1) eat healthy, and 2) wash the stupid blender? Between working full time, spending time with family and friends, working out at the gym and going to yoga, […]

Peanut Butter, Barley, Apple, Raisin Salad. 2

I don’t know about you, but I loathe unloading the dishwasher.  It was so horrible that until recently would actually hand wash the dishes in the sink rather than unload the dishwasher.  Why the avoidance?  Because I had about 300 different plastic containers shoved in the “plastic container cabinet” with mismatched lids, brands […]
