Yesterday, I had a work from noon to 4pm at the Nugget here in Davis. I was sampling out a new Dreyer’s product – milkshakes and smoothies! I, of course, tried them before handing them out to people (the chocolate and banana-strawberry were pretty good) and read all the ingredients and nutrition facts. The fruit … More Lessons learned in Nugget
Alright, so Day 2 was quite a bit harder than Day 1. I have had caffeine withdrawal headaches all day. I bought a decaf coffee while studying, thinking that some hidden caffeine would ease my throbbing skull, but alas, Mishka’s decaf is actually…. decaffeinated. Because of my head, I nixed working out today. Which is … More Detox: Day 2. Bring on the caffeine headaches.

The whole pot has 120 grams of protein and 100 grams of fiber. There are a couple secret ingredients, but I … More The best chili you will ever eat.
Yesterday was a very hard day. Let it suffice to say that I was emotionally all over the place. There are so many things in this world that we cannot control, and so many unanswerable questions that we could drive ourselves crazy with. One thing, though, that we can do to make ourselves feel better … More Wheat, butter, sugar, egg, and milk free cookies… THAT ROCK.

Just a quick note about myself before I continue onto the topic. I am very sensitive/allergic to sugars. I can’t eat sweets, but I can handle a bit … More Guest Post: Alex from Spoonful of Sugar Free
So today I was out in the garden and I found this poor, dehydrated little orphan baby… Because she was the cutest thing I have ever seen and she let me pick her up, I decided to take her in. She could hardly hop away and seemed lost. We are going to try to reunite … More Neener!
You guysss! I got a new camera! Remember how my old camera got destroyed on what was supposed to be a relaxing hike? No? Thats okay.
