Artsy & Dale Chihuly

TGIF, dolls!
I hope the week has been beyond good to all. It’s hard to believe we are winding down 2016 already. While most people are already preparing for the new year, I’m hanging out in my corner of the world thrilled that it’s Friday. With that being said, I’ll share a little tidbit of inspiration with you on this day.
I encourage you to take a look at Dale Chihuly’s work featured on Artsy. He is one of my favorites. His glass sculptures are nothing short of simply amazing. They are quite captivating. I’ve had the privilege of seeing several pieces, from Las Vegas to the Bahamas’ very own Paradise Island. Artsy reached out to me directly to share. It’s an honor, and my site now bares their badge, and with having shared that, enjoy!
Best wishes on this Friday,

Paleo Way of Life

It's time for me to share some nuggets on how I'm managing my health and diet, and my approach to doing so. I don't recall ever naming a particular 'diet' on my blog, but today, I will do so in efforts to sum up what has helped me embrace my allergy struggles. Notice I didn't say weight struggles. Allergy struggles.

I have wheat sensitivities, lactose intolerance and I'm carb sensitive, in addition to living with hypothyroidism. I have environmental allergies too, but we won't get into those today. Long story short, I got sick and tired, literally, of my struggles, and started cooking my own food, carrying my lunch to work and making the best meal choices when out with friends. Creating new routines takes time, but when you pay attention to how you feel, and it goes from good to great, you share!

Today I'm sharing a few of my favorite eats. This conversation is just getting started. Stay dialed in, my friends. I'll share pictures of my meals, me, my stats and more! Plus, I'll talk more about how ascribing Paleo to my health lifestyle has brightened my skin, lowered my blood sugar and lightened my load, literally.

I LOVE protein! It fills me up and is satisfying. Plus, it goes with all sorts of colorful veggies, and is the starting point for which my meals are built. Eggs, in particular, are like an enigma. I couldn't eat them for years, my body has changed over time, and now they have become a staple that my body absolutely loves me for.

If eggs don't work for you, consider other protein sources. We know our meats and fish, but have you considered beans, cottage cheese, quinoa, spinach and brussels sprouts!

Whip up a protein rich meal today and trust me, your body will love you for it!

Happy eating,

Reno is literally the biggest little town in the world. Its energy definitely derives from the mountains, and the people who bask in its beauty daily, and those like me who travel there to soak it all in. I can't wait to return. #renoenvy
