A Few Screws Loose


Good morning! My morning started off a bit sluggish, but it was nothing a Green Monster couldn’t handle. In the GM: 2 handfuls spinach, 1 cup almond milk, 1 scoop Vega choc-o-lot, 1 tbsp chia seeds, 1 frozen banana, 1/4 cup oats. After breakfast and a bit of digesting, Eric and I headed out for […]


Lessons from a New Gardener


My green thumb came only as a result of the mistakes I made while learning to see things from the plant’s point of view.  ~ H. Fred Ale Since I started my garden the third week of May, I was sure that everything would die. Every flower or plant that I’ve tried to grow in […]


Blame It On The Rain


There’ s no better way to start a summer day… Man oh man was this morning’s Green Monster good! Guess where this kale came from?   Just my veggie garden, that’s all. No big deal. ;) I’ve clearly advanced from a Black Thumb to a Brown Thumb. Milli Vanilli Green Monster Ingredients: ~ 1 cup […]


Happy Heart, Happy Belly


Sunday was a great day. Well, aside from finding out that my ‘vertically growing spinach’ had gone to seed and BOLTED! Nooooooo. After reading up on it, I guess it is quite common. I had no idea this was a risk-factor for spinach! Gardening is a practice of trial and error I guess. There was […]


From Dirt To Cake


Yesterday, the rain actually held off for most of the day which was nice. We got a lot of gardening done and hit up the nursery for some flowers. I bought some Impatiens, Geraniums, and Bellflowers to plant in the front garden. Before this, mom and I did a lot of weeding and prepped the […]


Blueberry Banana Pie Vegan Overnight Oats


There’s nothing more entertaining than a grown man wearing a pair of Crocs, a coordinating Mastercraft tool belt, while using power tools. He’s a keeper, for sure. :) heh We’ve been plugging away at the deck each night this week. By the time I pick up Eric from the train station and we have dinner […]


A Perfect Day


If you asked me what a perfect day would look like, yesterday was certainly it. My day started off with a 3 mile run followed by some core work, push-ups, and at-home yoga. I didn’t have much time, but I cranked out this well-rounded workout in 40 minutes. After showering and breakfast, Eric and I […]


Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Breakfast Cereal


Check out what arrived this week… 2.5 cubic yards of triple mix soil for the veggie garden. :) Thrilling, I know. After weeks of looking at different types of soils, I went with a triple mix from Van Beek’s. It’s made from composted manure, black loam, and sandy topsoil. I couldn’t find ‘certified’ organic anywhere, […]


Fruity Baked Oatmeal with Crunchy Cinnamon Almond Topping


Yesterday, I thought the tide was turning with my flu. I had a fairly restful sleep Monday night and my symptoms had died down a bit. I was so excited because I thought that I was getting over this thing! …and then Tuesday evening hit and the symptoms came back with a vengeance. I was […]


Taco Chili with Nacho Cheeze Sauce


Before we get to this amazing dinner that we enjoyed last night, I thought I would update you on my vegetable garden progress! Eric and I built the first of two raised beds for the veggie garden. Each bed is 4 feet by 8 feet.  We used this step-by-step tutorial for a raised bed. Our […]
