Healthy Life Thursday

Welcome to my venture of assigning a day of the week to sharing something specific with you! Haha, real exciting I know! 
Anyways, I ventured into clean eating the beginning of January after seeing a few people have great results. Checked into what it was all about and started implementing a few ideas here and there. I stopped eating refined flours and sugars, cut out processed stored boxed foods and started eating a lot more fruits, veggies and whole grains. I also added in things like Greek yogurt, almond milk, chia seeds and protein powder. 
Well, as good as that all sounds, I still get cravings. Just to show you it's not as strict as you might suspect here's a recipe I made last night that actually made Spinach Artichoke dip seem healthy.
1 can artichoke (chopped)
1 package frozen spinach
10 oz cauliflower Alfredo sauce (will post recipe soon)
6 oz low fat cream cheese
2 Tbsp minced garlic
1/4 low fat Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup low fat mozzarella on top

Bake at 375 for 30 minutes.

I are mine with a roasted whole grain pita. Delicious!! And it hit that craving for some warm cheesy goodness. I'll be back next week with more healthy living chatter.

It Was a Snowy Saturday...

...and I was sitting around looking at crafting and organizing ideas. Trying to do some of them but not successfully due to my 14 month daughter running away with the instructions. 
I've also been sitting around thinking lately that I would like to come back to my blog and start sharing my ideas, creations and everyday stories again. So, here I am, writing a quick post to say "hello" again! 
Here's what we've been up to today...
Organizing all my cupboards & the pantry.
Organizing and cleaning the fridge.
And reading snowy stories while it snows outside.
Just a quick peek at what's going on around our house today. Look for more posts in the near future! If you're reading this, thank you for still being around!
