I received complimentary coupons to try Silk Almond Milk in exchange for writing this review. All opinions listed are 100% my own.

I am SO not a breakfast person. My morning food consists of coffee — and lots of it to get me going. However, since doing that 30 day challenge where I HAD to eat breakfast, I find myself looking forward to it. I am not a cereal girl either, so I am trying to make foods that are good for me. That is how I discovered this delicious recipe for Turkey Sausage and Broccoli Mini Quiche that I made.

I have this amazing cheerleader in my life. My 16 year old daughter. She is truly a rock in my life and I could not imagine her not being there.

We have always encouraged her to be herself, and to not worry what everyone thinks about her. She dies her hair purple, she is in love with superheroes, and her family is her best friends.

This post is about to get real y’all.

This week has not been a very good week for me for food. I have been in one of those moods where I needed comfort, and for me, I have always turned to food for that. I know, I know — that is the WORST thing to do and I am trying really hard to break that routine.

I was craving sweets this week worse than I ever have, so I thought — “Hey I will make a strawberry cake, take a small piece and then throw that thing away.” Only — I did not throw it away. I ate cake every night this week. I also went out to eat a lot this week. Needless to say — I fell off the bandwagon this week and messed up.

I was compensated by SUDAFED REPLAY™ to share this information with you. All opinions listed however, are 100% my own.

I never had sinus issues until I gave birth the first time. The first time I was hit with a sinus headache, I thought my head was going to explode. In fact, my issue with my sinuses got SO bad, that many times, I had to stay home and rest when my husband and kids would go out to go to the park.

This week I started a new challenge — a 30 day weight loss challenge that involves mushrooms. I am being challenged to trade out meat or part of my meat in exchange for using mushrooms instead. I was provided a few meal plans, a workout plan, and some great ideas on how to incorporate these delicious veggies into my everyday life. I’ve been doing the challenge for one week now, so I thought I would share with you everything I learned this week — as well as a couple of new recipes!

My daughter has been feeling really tired lately — even though she gets plenty of sleep. I was pretty sure it was her iron levels, so we decided to stop into our local Walgreen’s and pick up some iron pills for her. While we were there, I also decided to pick up some other vitamins and herbs we were out of that I usually take as well. There are 5 very important recommended vitamins and herbs that I take daily to make sure that I promote good health in myself.

I love walking. Nothing makes me feel better than getting out and hitting the trails around my home. In fact, did you know that it is a proven fact that walking reduces stress?

However, right now — we are buried under about a foot of snow and ice — which makes it totally impossible to get out and walk.
