|Weight Loss||Do you want to lose 10 lbs with me!||Feb 17 2013
hey girls! i want to lose 10 lbs as well by april 1st... =X i'm going across the world to start working (and see my potential? bf after like 4 months haha) so gotta look good! tummy and hip flab is really bothering me... i'm about 5'5 and sit at 125 right now. i felt great at 118 two years ago, but 115 would be perfect! :)
gotta show my chicken and veggies some love!
|Foods||bag lunch||Sep 09 2012
i'm an advocate of sandwiches (pb+j, ham and cheese, mayo and turkey, egg/chicken/tuna salad, avocado/pesto, take your pick). easy, quick, cheap.
|Foods||Does cereal keep you full?||Jun 25 2012
I nearly never have cereal with just milk... that would last me two hours, max!
However, I love cereal on top of oatmeal (weird I know) with almond butter. High fiber cereal :)
I also love cereal on top of greek yogurt, honey, almond butter / peanut butter!
If you just want milk and cereal however, try adding a scoop of protein powder into the milk (something yummy like vanilla, chocolate, etc!). I find it helps a lot with satiety. Or trying using an assortment of cereals :)
Or switch to eating it with full fat milk... I find almond milk isn't very filling at all!

hehe, yeah... it was a pretty good day of eats. :)
it's my new favorite thing! i even had it for breakfast when it's really hot. buy the frozen "mixed berries" at any supermarket, throw about a cup into the blender with some stevia/sweetener (i have a magic bullet, it gets a little difficult) and comes out as the icey sorbet! then i just mix in a few tablespoons of plain greek yogurt to make it into "froyo". it tastes absolutely amazing... and it's mostly berries too! :) i usually top with some almond butter / fats and carbs too for sateity :)

|Foods||what food finds/combos/meals have you been loving lately?||Jun 15 2012
omg, is that what they're called?! bocconcini?!? i've always gotten them in my salads but i just called them baby mozzarella balls. LOL! i LOVE THEM SO MUCH. try pairing it with arugula, avocado, tomato, and basil and drizzle with balsamic reduction (cook balsamic vinaigrette for a few minutes and it because this lovely super concentrated sauce) - one of my absolute favorite combos! or you can top a pizza with the same combo as well :)
i've been recently obsessed with kalamata olives and pickles... anytime of the day. also sauerkraut which is this pickled cabbage which is kind of salty, crunchy, and slightly sweet - i think the hot weather has me cravy salty cold things, lol!
ALSO been obsessed with cutting an avocado in half, removing the seed, and pouring an egg into the center and baking it so the whites harden but the yolk remains runny - and then eating it like that topped with some really fresh crispy bread and s+p. like so! http://www.italktofood.com/2012/02/eggs-in-av ocado.html
beets and avocado go together really nicely too. mostly i've just been on an avocado kick. :) guacamole on EVERYTHING.

|Foods||Does diet soda really cause cancer?||Jun 11 2012
the reason you're having headaches is because you're addicted to the caffeine in the diet sodas, not because of the sweeteners! you can try replacing it with coffee or tea instead if you truly want to get yourself off of it!
i know it takes about 5 days "cold turkey" if you want to get yourself off caffeine... but it will be a very painful 5 days where you feel like you're constantly headachey, tired, grumpy, and in a bad mood. try taking some advil :P (i've done it before) or slowly stop drinking it, maybe start drinking tea instead (less caffeine).
although honestly i don't think there's anything inherently wrong with diet soda. millions of people drink it... i'm not sure if they drink two a day, but atleast you're not inhaling tons of sugar into your body. i have a diet soda now at night now after dinner haha (i dunno why i started doing it, i found a new chocolate fudge soda and it's like dessert for me) and it's caffeine free, so i figure it's ok to drink at night :p no worries, as long as you're still eating heathily otherwise, you're good!
it's impossible to eat a 100% clean diet and not EVER eat anything "bad" for you, i think anyone would go crazy... just eat what you like :)

The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
