Here are two delicious recipes to check out from my friend Lindsay from the Life, Love & Sugar blog:
Here’s a clean eating program I’d like to share with you- it was started by a fabulous personal trainer (Heather) that I had when I lived in San Diego: THE 30 CLEAN. It’s a clean eating challenge that you can follow and work at it on your own… or you can sign up to be part of a Facebook group and get support and coaching from others. I did a 7-day version of it and thought it was great. They provide everything you need to get started- a food list, a menu with suggested recipes (all really good recipes!), and lots of background about eating clean. I was almost 100% perfect with my 7 day challenge . I lost a few pounds (since I cut out processed foods, wine and dairy!) And I found that I had a lot more energy than I usually do. Most days of the week I feel sluggish mid-day and need to lie down for a few minutes. I didn’t feel like that at all when I was following the clean eating program. It’s really something that everyone should do as much as possible! You can check out Heather’s program here: The30Clean.com to register for their next challenge.
And finally, here is my sweet Tessie the Labradoodle. She is now 10 months old. We love her to pieces!
Oh my word Lori – I have been drooling over that one chocolate cake all week. It’s been everywhere I look. LOVING all these!
As usual, a fabulous collection! As the new owner of a spiralizer, I’m loving the zoodle recipes. And Tessie!! So dang cute. Happy long weekend, Lori! 🙂
