Maria’s Gourmet Kitchen – Meal Kit Review

I love cooking and trying new things.  Right now meal kit services are all the rage.  What’s not to like about them?  Fresh food, delivered right to your door with directions on how to put together a delicious meal for your family.   They are a great way to mix-up your meals and try new foods and recipes.

Grow Your Own Food: Easy Garden Ideas

 

It’s no secret I love food!  I love eating food, cooking food and even growing food.  My grandparents always had an amazing garden.  Growing my own garden makes me feel connected to them and the memories I have of spending summers helping in their garden and shelling peas as a little girl.  Gardening also helps me feel connected to nature. It’s amazing to me that one little seed can become a fruit or vegetable that I can turn into a meal to feed my family. Not to mention that for some reason homegrown food tastes so much better. If you’ve thought about growing a garden but aren’t sure where to start I’ve got some easy garden ideas to get you going.

Beachbody On Demand – Workouts That Travel With You

Recently I found myself on an impromptu business trip.  My original plans to stop and spend the night at my grandparents got changed with the addition of another meeting.  Now instead of spending the night at their house I would be staying at a hotel. No big deal.  Since I was in the middle of the 21 Day Fix Program I would just bring the DVD with me and do one of the workouts that didn’t require weights.  Great plan.  Until I realized that plan wasn’t really going to work. Thank goodness for Beachbody On Demand.Beachbody on Demand - Workouts that Travel With You Continue reading “Beachbody On Demand – Workouts That Travel With You”
