No Bake Cookie Balls (with Chick Peas!)

The other day I put garbanzo beans on the grocery list (also known as chick peas). They were on the list because I was going to roast some up for an easy snack for me to grab in the afternoons, but when my 6 year old said “Ewwww, what are those little butt beans for?” I changed my mind. I was like "What????" But really when you look closely at them there is a little indentation that does in fact look a bit like a bare bottom. He clearly did not think they looked appetizing, but I saw this as a challenge. Forget that my kids have eaten these beans thousands of time without knowing or caring- I throw them into soups, and make hummus out of them. I usually mix them into most of my curry’s, roas

Yoga for Sleep and Relaxation

Sleep.... it's definitely something that I struggle with. I know I need it, my body wants it but I have trouble getting enough in every day. I have a two-week-old baby and honestly, I can't remember the last time I slept uninterrupted through the night but if I had to guess it was at least 5 months ago and there is no end in site for me.

Potatoes (of any variety) were the go to partner in crime to these juicy yummy burgers for years but gradually I started replacing fries or tater tots or baked potatoes with salads, cauliflower, or veggies instead. Last year I saw a bag of Broccoli Tots in the freezer aisle and grabbed them to see what we thought. YUM! But if you know me you know I hate buying something in a bag that I can make on my own. So let the kitchen experiment begin. It was a little messy at first, but fear not, I solved the problem for you so you won't end up with green sticky

Lets Talk About the Core

Building a CORE-ific Core. What, Why and How What is your Core? Core, Abs- It’s all the same right? Not exactly. Your core actually includes way more muscles than just your abdominals. Picture a box in your abdominal region, starting at your pelvic floor and reaching all the way up to your diaphragm and including all the muscles (front, back and sides) in between. This is your core. Some of the main muscles it includes are: Rectus Abdominus: the ones up and down your tummy that help you bend forward or curl up. Internal and External Obliques: these are along your sides and allow trunk rotation, twisting both left and right and bending to the side Transverse Abdominus: an internal muscle whi
