Livin the Green

Livin the Green I am a mom of three boy who wants to start making healthier changes for myself and my family. Finding out I had breast cancer at 30, when I was 8 months pregnant with my third son, was a wakeup call. One where I needed to look deeply into my lifestyle and make some health changes. I was always fit and active but I did indulge in the pleasures of life. I am ready to head to greener pastures and slowly but surely turn my life into a clean, healthy, natural/organic lifestyle.

Recipe: Anne’s ‘Morning Delight’ smoothie

Call me crazy but I am not a fan of chocolate.  I think it is insanely overrated.  Unless it is from Ginger Elizabeth in Sacramento, or Woodhouse in St. Helena, then I can care less about it.  I think it is too sweet, fattening, and I f...

Ohhh….Holy Green Mary

Truth.  I was scared about this post.  The idea popped into my head and I loved it....then thought about it more, and nearly vomited.  I'm so happy I experimented and went with my gut. After all the nasty green beer attempts and other a...

My Rebirth

Mar 1, 2012

My heart is heavy.  A friend sent an email about a woman, Diane*, whom I met last year.  She just passed from breast cancer.  I hardly new her.  Met her a few times at Komen events and she was always smiling.  She had...
