Happy Valentines Day

Cheeks, THANK YOU!! Thank you all for reading, cooking and following along with the cheeks, it’s truly appreciated. Contrary to what you might be expecting I have not prepared something sweet for you all.  I have been eating sugar-which will soon come to a hault as the Whole Life Challenge is about to begin, but I [...]

Sugar Free Scam!

I know you’re probably thinking “A scam?!  Is Lefty a phony!?? Has she been gorging on sugar this whole time and writing her posts while shoving cookies in her mouth?!!”  No, no, no my Cheekers, I am legit.  I’m sugar free, and as clean and happy as can be!  BUT there is something fishy going [...]

Say Cheese!

  Okay, seriously now, Righty and I have been obsessed with goat cheese lately.  It’s creamy, rich, smooth and bursting with flavor!!  But I understand, not everyone likes goats and cheese as much as The Cheeks.  For my next recipe no cheese, I promise!!  I super duper cross my heart and cross my cheeks while [...]

  Up tonight… another sweaty session!!  Hot yoga again, you wonder?  Cooking with the broiler on high??  Or maybe a sweaty session located in the, ahem, bedroom?  NO!  Get your head out of the gutter!  Tonight is Zumba time!  Olé olé olé!  Do they yell that during Zumba?  I dunno.  But tonight I’ll find out!

Long time, no cheek.

  You may of noticed we’ve been a bit sparse lately. Don’t think that means we haven’t been cooking, because the kitchen is always hopping here at HQ. We’ve just been a bit busy lately. Righty has been doing great things running her CrossFit Kids program and my acupuncture business continues to bloom. It’s been [...]

Rise and shine!

Some people might say that I take too long to get ready in the mornings, but I love my morning routine. I always get up 2 hours before I have to be anywhere. This gives me time to start my day off in a relaxed and calm state of mind. If I don’t have enough [...]

The Power of Positivity

Recently I attended a service at Agape International Spiritual Center, and it was fabulous! There was singing, dancing, meditating, breathing and the most amazing service spoken by Dr. Michael Bernard Beckwith. I LOVED it. Dr. Michael was one of the speakers in the ever so famous movie “The Secret.” I’ve actually never seen that movie [...]

Mush-tastic!

I have a new favorite meal that I have lovingly named … MUSH! My first inspiration came from Shirley and her kale salads – a delicious concoction of kale, sauteed onions, nuts and cranberries. Mmmmm MM! I immediately was hooked. Then my man fed me a breakfast of scrambled eggs with nuts, cranberries and kale. [...]
