Bourbon Tilapia w/Baked Sweet Potatoes & Peaches

I hope you all had a lovely 4th of July!  We relaxed at home, splashed around in the sprinklers, and enjoyed a bbq with the fam.  We had some out-of-town guests come over Tuesday night, in town for the holiday, so I made a SECOND batch of this wonderful recipe that I'm going to share with you today! I doubled the recipe: 3 casserole dishes overflowing with sweet potatoes, peaches, and tilapia...and by the end there was literally not one bite left. 

Lemon Blackberry Grilled Cheese

If you've spent much time on this blog you know I don't like added sugar, I do like cooking with Greek Yogurt (especially breads!), and I love teaching my darling toddler about living the happy healthy life.  Another theme seems to be emerging though...a deep found love for grilled cheese.  First I made this Smashed Blackberry Grilled Cheese after I saw a mouth-watering picture on Pinterest.  Then I made this ...

Live Simply By... + Giveaway Winner Announced

I am excited to share with you some highlights from the Simply Bar Giveaway on Monday...and of course, to announce the winner in today's post.  When thinking about how to live simply, I believe the most important thing is by not trying to compete with others.  What is the motivation behind the extra stuff, the extra activities, and the extra busyness?

Our New "Normal" - Veggie Juice, Broccoli, & Exercise

True long-lasting weightloss doesn't come easy and it can't come quick.  It has to be a complete shift, a complete lifestyle change, if you are going to maintain it.  You have to redefine "normal." If you quickly lose 20lbs with a fad diet, once you start eating "normal" again, the pounds creep back on...which is why so many of us have struggled with "yo-yo" dieting over the years.

Colorado is on Fire

If you haven't heard, Colorado is on fire.  Not just in one spot; there are multiple fires in multiple cities...a big darn deal.  This picture is of Colorado Springs, where the Air Force Academy and the "Garden of the Gods" are located.  Over 32,000 people have had to evacuate (including friends of ours!), and a lot of homes have burned.  It is blazing hot, literally: 105 in Denver this week! And the wind is 70mph: a firefighter's nightmare.
