New recipes! From healthy to not so healthy...

I have three new articles to share with you today! We have one un-healthy recipe, one semi-healthy recipe and one healthy product review.
I still have a sweet tooth I just can't seem to kick :)

Lets start with the healthy product review: Wholesome Goodness tortilla chip review
These chips are healthier than the average chip and really do taste good! I can not eat fried chips, so when I discovered these, I was thrilled!

I have also cut out fast food from my diet. Every once in a while, I'll splurge, but always pay for it, I find myself splurging less and less. When I went to college for Cosmetology, I would drive through McDonalds most mornings for an Egg McMuffin. I have always enjoyed those stupid things! I made my own today and it was fantastic! Not only did it taste better, it was healthier and it saved me money making it myself. Mock Egg McMuffin recipe

Lastly, the Chocolate chocolate chip almond latte cookie recipe These were amazingly chocolaty and by using the package cookie dough (that only cost $1), it was very inexpensive to make. I had the other added ingredients already waiting for me in the pantry.

Please take a look at the picture slide shows on each article for more great pictures as well as nutritional information on the chips.

Muscle Relaxers That Really Work!

For years I have popped ibuprofen like candy. For me, it was to find relief from PMS discomfort...yes, ladies...cramps!

I have found a natural way to find relief now. I am so excited about it! I am so excited that I wrote an article all about the product: Natural Muscle Relaxers That Really Work!

When I went for my yearly check-up this year, my Doctor told me to lay off of the ibuprofen. So, now...I really can!
In addition to relief of PMS discomfort, these work wonderfully to provide all muscle discomfort relief.

In love with tofu

I know, I know...I disappeared from the blogging world for a while. I have had a lot of changes going on in my life. Without going into great detail, I have had changes in probably 90% of my life while maybe 10% remained the same.

I have lost 27 pounds and drastically changed the way that I eat. If you remember, I used to practically live off baked goods. It seems like every other day I was posting a new recipe that was filled with sugar and fat :) I still indulge about once a week, but have cut it out as part of my daily menu.
I have also cut out all processed foods. It was hard at first because it is so easy to pop in a frozen meal or eat Sunchips when you are super hungry!
Now, I eat mostly veggies and fruits, but make sure I get enough protein every day as well. I have fallen in love with tofu!

I run, box and lift weights now. I have been working with a trainer. If you are interested in having a trainer come to your house and work with you (and live in the Raleigh, NC area), leave me a comment to this post. He provides everything needed to train in the comfort of your own home!

I also work a full time position as the front desk supervisor at O2 Fitness at Falls and 540 in Raleigh, NC. I started as part time, opening the club at 5am...getting up at 3:30am. Then, thankfully, at the end of March of this year, I was promoted to the full time position I currently have. It is a fantastic environment for me and I get to work out for free!

My goal is to start posting some of my new recipes. Me and tofu are BFF...I am trying to cook it as many ways as I can! One day soon, I am going to try it in desserts!

Have a wonderful day...I hope to be back again soon :)
