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 […]

I didn’t have much time, but I cranked out this well-rounded workout in 40 minutes. After showering and breakfast, Eric and I […]

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, […]

Some of you might remember last May when we bought a CSA share from Plan B organic farms. It was our first time ever buying a CSA share and we were excited for local and organic food each week. Well to clarify, it was mostly ME who was excited…but excitement is contagious and I think […]
