Cheese and Chicken Lentil Pasta Dish

This meal is somewhat of a play on Chefboyardee. I never actually had those canned meals growing up, but the cheesy meaty pasta dish was similar to what a beefaroni dish looks like. I would hope this tastes WAY better and it is of course much healthier. I have been playing around with the lentil…

Craving a Vacation Workout

I hope everyone enjoyed the long Labor Day weekend. I was lucky enough to snag a 3 night stay in a cabin on the lake up in the Adirondacks. It was a last minute “mini vacation” before the end of the Summer. Even though I snacked on late night Smores by the fire pit and…

Listen to Your Body

When a craving first begins, the first question should be “Is this thing I am craving, something good for me or something bad for me?” Sometimes when you think you are craving one thing, you’re body may actually be craving something completely different. For instance, you eat because you are hungry..or are you? Maybe, your body…

Let’s get GOOD

What determines a good craving vs a bad craving? Are all cravings created equally? We don’t need to be speaking in regards to food only. You can be craving a person, a place, a thing, But what makes a craving good or bad? Craving BAD + give into craving = guilty, shameful, angry, regretful. Craving…
