it’s not oatmeal, it’s NOTmeal


Two weeks ago when I went to my Whole Life Challenge Food Co-op, Laura had brought us some notmeal. It was amazing. I ate mine with eggs and was ready to replicate the next day. Laura’s notmeal was made with Acorn squash as the base and had the following ingredients that I’ve listed below.  Now [...]

Why Lefty Left All The Cabinets Open.

Baked Apples

I’ve been a little off this week because I’ve been so busy lately.  It started with not making my bed, then continued with not washing my dishes.  I left my clothes out instead of putting them away, and left the cabinets open instead of closing them.  Next thing you know I’ve only worked out once [...]

As Righty geared up for her Whole Life Challenge, I, Lefty, decided to take it down a notch and indulge in some sugar.  As most of you know, this was my first time eating sugar since last year.  I was so afraid I was going to get a piercing headache or wake up with a [...]

The One Thing That Makes Lefty Crave Sugar.

Vegetable Primavera

As most of you know, I’ve been happily hopping along sugar-free for all of 2013 thus far.  Since detoxing from the sugar addiction, I have experienced virtually zero cravings.  That is until two days ago.  All day I thought about diving into a pint of Ben&Jerry’s ice cream, indulging in some heart-shaped Valentine’s candy from [...]

  I’m sure you’ve all been on the edge of your seats waiting to know what I cooked for Thanksgiving dinner, right?!  Hee, heh!  No of course not!  Just kidding!!!  I hopped on over to my favorite food blogger the Caveman and cooked up a batch of blueberry brussels sprouts.  Man, they’re good!  The lime [...]

Making it Yours!


spaghetti squash salad Hi Cheek Fans- It’s been a while since I posted. Something subconsciously happened when Lefty announced her retirement- apparently my blogging life took a pause too. But, I’m back and need to build it back into the schedule. Just like I coach people on integrating fitness into their lives, I too need [...]
