Great Day Farms Avocado Hard-boiled eggs #ad #greatday


 Last year when I got done feeling sorry for myself after the loss of my stepdad shortly followed by the spinal cord injury from the car wreck, I knew I needed to do something to get my body back on track. While eggs often get a bad reputation, they are a great protein-rich anytime food! When I am in a time crunch (or not wanting to heat up the house with this 100 degree weather), I love Great Day Farms hard-boiled eggs found in the deli section at Walmart. Along with leading days without … [Continue]

Make Everyday Father’s Day w/ Heart-Healthy Bigelow Earl Grey Coconut Avocado Ice Cream #AmericasTea


Tea seems like such a little thing, but the benefits are amazing! In May, I had the pleasure of meeting with the Bigelow Family for a once in a lifetime trip to Charleston, SC and the fabulous Charleston Tea Plantation. We did drink a lot of Bigelow Tea, but we did so much more than that! I was truly inspired by their family's passion not just for tea, but for their dedication to continuing family traditions and to focus on the health benefits as well. One of the many things I learned is that … [Continue]

How to Have a Great Gluten-free Father’s Day {Guest blogger @GlutenFreeforMen}


I think widely celebrated holidays are more fun when you create your own traditions, without the stress of anything being perfect. Each holiday should be a personal experience that can be enjoyed between you and the people you care about, no matter how the day plays out. If you’re a gluten-free dad, or have kids who can’t eat wheat, just look for ways to spend quality time together and you’ll be halfway to a great time. I was a father for two years before I realized I had to go gluten-free. … [Continue]

Oklahoma Staycation Fun at Andy Alligator’s Fun Park and Waterpark #ad


First off I don't want to seem insensitive about the recent disasters in Oklahoma. Three deadly tornadoes in a 3 week period is enough to humble anyone. My husband covers business in the whole state of Oklahoma and I was so thankful he wasn't there any of those days. With that being said, we could all use a little fun in our lives and saving money makes it even better! Like most family's there is not enough time (and sometimes money) to get the dream vacation, but staycations are an awesome … [Continue]
