Gluten Free Banana Drunk Macaroons

I hadn’t realized it while planning this weeks’ posts, but there is an ongoing theme for many of the recipes this week.

fiber + healthy and happy digestion

I just love fiber, don’t you?

Abusing my body throughout my teenage and early adult years left me with a very broken digestive system.

After going through countless tests, x-rays, medications, hospital visits, acupuncture, massage therapists, and exercises I said enough is enough! And I made a promise to myself that I would Read More »

Good For You Chocolate Chip Muffins

I love bringing along homemade muffins with me on hotel vacations. They’re fantastic for snack or breakfast, can be filled with protein and healthy fats (which I always seem to lack when I travel), and even if they get squished during my trip, they still taste Read More »

Refuel with Homemade Electrolyte Drinks

Do you remember the first time you drank Gatorade?

I do! I was at a track and field meet. After the race, my coach passed me a bottle of Gatorade and told me to drink it to avoid feeling sick.

The neon color should have been enough to raise a red flag, but I drank it anyway. 5 minutes later I felt like I’d been hit by a truck. Sugar overload! I could feel the  Read More »

Two Eggnog recipes. The first, a Vegan Eggnog Coffee (or tea) Creamer that will transform a boring cup of coffee into a healthy eggnog latte. The second, a Light, Dairy-free Eggnog recipe made with dairy-free milk, ground spices and a touch of coconut sugar.

Vegan Creamy Ranch Quinoa Salad Recipe

Healthful Pursuit - Leanne Vogel

Did you have a good weekend?

Kevin and I had initially planned to go to Calaway Park, but it ended up raining all weekend so we decided to stay home and organize the house! Sounds much better than going to a theme park, right? *rolls eyes*

It’s amazing how much stuff a person can accumulate over the years, isn’t it? I was surprised to learn that we have 11 boxes of Christmas things – lights, decorations, stockings, etc. That’s more than we have boxes of books, or clothes! There’s something wrong with this picture, no?

Come Sunday afternoon, we had made two trips to the goodwill center, organized the basement, our offices and the garage, and were absolutely drop-dead starving! Kevin kept himself busy sorting through a box of old photos while I prepared a big salad for the two of us. We met in the living room just off the kitchen, sat on the floor with the dogs, and Read More »
