Chicken Tikka Masala

I love eating Indian and always wonder why I go so long between making it. It’s easy, has many healthy options and is completely delicious. A real break from a monotonous weekday menu. I’ve modified my old “go to” recipe for this dish to be Whole30 compliant by removing yogurt and adding coconut milk instead….

Kale Pesto

As I’m making my way through my Whole30 and am getting bored with my plates fats. I mean, who knew that I’d get tired of avocado in 22 days… or ever? I looked at the options and decided to get creative. My first CSA share from Farmhouse Nashville came and I got a big bundle…

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…

The Quaffle. Or is it the Frittaffle?

As I mentioned, it’s time to get real up in here when it comes to getting healthy. I decided to try something that I’ve seen a few versions of and use it to plan my breakfasts for the week. At first, I thought it was sort of quichey, but without a crust, I think I…

The Great Weight Loss Challenge

I have mentioned in previous posts that I lost a good deal of weight upon moving to Southern California. I was motivated to be a healthier version of myself and it made sense that I would start my path to a new me at the same time as transitioning the rest of my life. It…

Ouch! Natural Sunburn Relief

Of course the idea, is NOT to get a sunburn. Sometimes, that just doesn’t work out. When you get a little too much sun… or worse, if your kiddos do, having this little jar of relief will make you, (as usual) a superhero. My girlfriend Bathsheba’s brother was visiting from France and they had spent…

Lavender Honey Sugar Scrub

This is such a simple recipe and it’s not only good for personal use but makes a great hostess gift! Hell… It’s good for any gift! This scrub has a TON of benefits. The sugar itself is a great exfoliant and will leave your skin looking bright and feeling smooth. The lavender is calming and…

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,…
