How To Cut Back On Caffeine With Minimal Side Effects

How To Cut Back On Caffeine With Minimal Side Effects

Hi everyone!  So I spent the last four weeks cutting back on Caffeine consumption and I’m so happy I did, I thought I’d share my experience in case you’ve thought about reining in the caffeine monster.

What does a Dietitian really eat?

It’s Wednesday again, isn’t that crazy?  The days just keep rolling by, sorry no post last night I got a brutal massage that left me pretty sore… hoping it will loosen up some of my angry muscles though!  At this point we are suspecting a bad tear or strain in the lower back, these things take time and I must be patient.  I’ve already come a long way so I’m happy…

Healthy iPhone App Review Friday: Happier

Healthy iPhone App Review Friday: Happier

First, I’ve been focusing way too much on the negatives.  Also, I’ve been focusing a lot on my future goals which is definitely a good thing, but it also makes me miss what I have to appreciate right now.  Lastly, I’ve been…

Silverbrite Salmon with Honey Mustard Pan Sauce

Happy Thursday!  Are you surprised to see a blog post on silent Thursday?  Me too, but here it is anyway… a yummy quick, healthy, easy Salmon dish to make tonight!

Last week I decided to try out the recipe on the front of the Trader Joe’s salmon package.  I wasn’t sure how it would taste but I liked the idea of having the frozen fish ready sooner than the 40 + minutes it would take to bake it.  …
