If you’ve been following me on Facebook & Twitter, (or just reading along on the site), you may have noticed me mentioning some transitions & changes that are & will continue to happen around here for the next little while. Please bear with me during these changes.

I have been feeling a little stretched in ways that I didn’t want to be pulled. I am re~evaluating what I am here for. I want to be your go~to girl for Nutrition, Whole Vegan/Vegetarian Healthy Eating & Living Tips, Tricks, Supplement questions, Natural Detoxing Quests, Detoxing aids, & Natural Stress Management planning. I feel as though I’m not going into my bag of tricks as often as I’d like. I love to be of help. But I have to find my space, the place that is open & waiting for me.

In the meantime, I have added another interesting & informative section on this page for you. It’s my Top Ten!!! For now I only have a few, but I am eagerly awaiting your suggestions for more pages…

Things you need to read!

Hi everyone! Are you so excited for the weekend? I love that it’s Friday!!! My boys have been on Spring Break for the last week & I’m pumped to be able to hang out with them for a few days.

Instead of a Review this Friday, I thought I would share some of the Amazing Posts that I read in the last few weeks. These are totally worth it. So grab yourself a cup or Tea or Coffee (or Wine, depending on what time zone you’re in) & enjoy!

This post (zero waste home tips) made me think really hard about how we Use & ReUse things in our house as well as the amount we Waste (both Food & Money). We take pride in ReUsing our bottles for Bulk Items & Composting regularly, but I now feel that there are so many more options out there for us to do. It opened my eyes to how wasteful some things are, & gave me great ideas on how to change it. I’m looking forward to saving money & the planet a little bit more now! I especially love the way they have added a 4th R (Refuse!) & remind us that it is Firstly Reduce, Then ReUse, and Lastly Recycle!

Conscious Diva’s had a nice article that also made me think. The article about The Grass is Always Greener really made me appreciate my life & helped me remember that it really is in the way you look at it, & sometimes you just need to take a step back to see where you really are.

Everyone has Money Issues right? I don’t care who you are, there is something about money that makes people a bit crazy. This article has 5 cute tips on how to be more spiritual with the moolah issues. It’s not a long post, but it is cute!

Oh She Glows is a Blog I go to regularly for Amazing Recipes. Angela is coming out with a cookbook soon & I am dying to buy it!!! (or get it as a present, whatever…;) ) Here is a recipe for Freezer Fudge that made me drool, what do you think of it?

Mung Beans are what Bean Sprouts are made of. Did you know that? Here’s a recipe for Mung Beans & Root Veggies that is Perfect for the days that are still a little too chilly for Salads 🙂

Lauren over at the Holy Kale had a great article about keeping your Produce fresh longer (something I think everyone should know tips for). My only add~on would be to keep your Onions with your Apples as they keep each other from going bad (cool hey~ did you know that tip?)

Jess over at Wellness Warrior has a great 4 part video interview series with James Colqhoun from Food Matters (as well as the new film coming out March 21st Hungry for Change). Take a look at all 4 parts here #1 #2 #3 #4. There is so much info here that I just can’t get into it all. James talks about what his rules are for living a better life, how is he thankful, foods role, & so much more….. Chris & I just watched Food Matters,  (it’s free on YouTube) & it’s a great eye~opener. It made me much more confident to be in the field that I’m striving in (Nutrition, Fitness, Stress Management & Detoxing) & totally made me feel like eating Plants (not Animals) & taking our Supplements was A~OK!

Vienda is my new fav Guru. Here you will find Week One of her ‘uncover your authentic self’ & here you will find Week Two & Week Three (I’m still on week 2), hey~ let’s do this together!!!

Now, if you have the time & like reading things that are a bit more ‘deep’ or out there, Wake Up World always has some great posts that really make you think. Here are just a few of my favorites in the last few weeks….
