Clean Eating Coconut Flour Chocolate Cake

TweetIt’s taken me years to figure my way past all the diet and eating fads and over the last while I have settled more into simply cutting out anything processed and eating as clean as possible. It stems from both my belief system and my exhaustion at trying to figure out what’s going to make…



When Dove asked me What’s Your #BeautyLegacy?

TweetWhen I received the press release and video link to the “What’s your #BeautyLegacy” campaign by Dove, I watched it in awe of the responsibility it takes to be a parent to a young child (I don’t believe only girls have self esteem or even beauty issues), but I couldn’t relate and set the email aside.…
