If at first you don’t succeed… Get off your fat @$$.

When I moved to Southern California I lost nearly 60 pounds. Let that sink in… 60. That’s more than my five year old weighs… and I lost it. I was heavy. I am perfectly aware of the right way to lose weight. I did it the right way. Somehow, somewhere along the line, I lost…

Mindful Monday and a Spicy Green Smoothie

So, you all remember the Fritaffle, right? Well, I went to town with that thing! I had it for breakfast everyday for weeks! I would switch up the ingredients, but eventually I needed a change. I decided a smoothie was in order. I’ve been making it for The Rock Star and I for a couple weeks now. I…

Gingeriffic Apple Juice!

Ok, so I’m totally knocking off the Whole Foods right now BUT, in true Swearing Mom fashion I am giving it my own bit of sass. This fantastic juice is an amazing jump start in the morning! It’s sweet and tangy and spicy! Everything in it has a specific health benefit which is why Whole…

My girlfriend Bathsheba’s brother was visiting from France and they had spent…

Bentonite Turmeric Facial Mask

I have struggled with my skin for years. I have adult acne that is cystic and painful at times. When I eat properly and drink plenty of water I always see an improvement but it’s never quite “good”. I went to a dermatologist and he gave me some oral meds that helped. I don’t however,…
