Chili & Lime Roasted Cashews

First of all, welcome to January! Wow, I can't believe another year has come and gone. I feel like it was just January 2017 and I was thinking about what I wanted to accomplish in the year ahead and now I'm here again facing another year. Maybe this is just how it is as we get older? Years fly by in a blink. So I'm definitely working on living in the moment in 2018. With my family - soaking up each dinner and holiday together. And especially with Dylan - watching her grow each day. Laying on the floor as she plays or holding her as I nurse, I watch her every move, trying to write it in my memory forever because I know she won't be this small forever. I know in a blink it'll be 2019 and I'll be writing a similar post about how fast the year went. Ahh life is crazy! But crazy wonderful.

Cacao Cashew Truffles

The weekends go waaay too fast if you ask me. Working during the week, I've always cherished Saturdays and Sundays. But now with a little one, I cherish those days off like they are gold.

And then Sunday afternoon rolls around and I sadly have to start planning for the next day. Which for me, usually doesn't require much planning, because I'm horrible at meal prepping, and everything else I need to do to prepare for Monday I'll put off or never do.

Peach-Lemonade Pops

 

Well, it's been HOT. And lately all that sounds good is something ice cold and fruity. So, bring on the fruit pops!

I make these popsicles tart with the lemon juice and slightly sweet with the peaches and honey. And I add in some summery basil for an herby kick. The perfect summer combination!

Roasted Pear & Cardamom Chia Pudding {sugar-free, dairy-free}

Holidays are sweet, there is no doubt about that. But, the extra sugar can take a toll. On your mood, your concentration, your energy.

Which is why I sometimes just step away for a minute...

I'm about done with my November Whole30 challenge. It was over 2 years ago that I first started doing Whole30, inspired by my sister who was doing it at the time. It's been my way to re-charge as I enter the colder months. Omitting sugars, dairy and grains from my diet and focusing on whole foods. If you've done a Whole30 you know that after the month, you continue with it as a lifestyle, tweaking it to fit your own body. (Remember - we are all different and what works for one person may not work for the next!)
