Cookie Dough Yogurt

Who DOESN'T have a craving for something sweet once in awhile?! You can still enjoy treats without completely sacrificing your waistline with this delicious, healthy, clean eating dessert!  This is so simple to whip up, and you can use your imagination and creativity to come up with your own concoctions. Like instead of using PB, why not try Pumpkin Pie Spice Extract with a bit of pureed pumpkin? or Salted Caramel - YES PLEASE! Simply add some Caramel Extract. Or what about putting it in the freezer for about an hour for a frozen yogurt dessert?!

I'm sure this will become one of your new go-to's for that sweet "fix"! ENJOY!

Health Coaching Job Opportunity

Instead of filling your head with negativity and self doubt, instead think "what if"? 

What if I could meet the CEO of Beachbody, Carl Daikeler? What if I could earn a full-time income working from home? What if I could earn and save enough $ to pay cash for family vacations and that new car we need (had the fortune to do JUST that on Sunday!!)? What if I weren't afraid to have big dreams, and even bigger goals? What if instead of DREADING going back to work on Monday morning, you looked forward to your job? What if instead of needing to report to a boss, you were your OWN boss? What if you were entirely and COMPLETELY fulfilled, in every way, by your job, knowing you were making a positive impact and difference in someone's life? What if...you could be part of the #1 TEAM in ALL of Beachbody?

Find out how YOU can duplicate my success with this business, in as little as one year achieving 4-Star Qualifying Diamond Coach rank in my organization well on my way towards FINANCIAL FREEDOM - something I certainly wouldn't have even DREAMED would be possible.

Gingered Carrot Soup

Who doesn't love the convenience of using the slow cooker in the fall?  And with the bountiful harvest of the garden root vegetables, I look forward to this recipe every year. It really is so simple to throw together, and smells SO good as it simmers throughout the day. I love to make a batch of homemade whole wheat bread in my bread maker as an accompaniment. 

You can throw all the ingredients into your slow cooker, and let it cook itself. Perfect for those days you are away from home or at work; to come home to a prepared meal is such a treat!!


2 lb. Carrots, peeled and sliced
4 c. Water
1T. Coconut oil or butter
1 1/2 C chopped Onion
2 cloves minced Garlic
2 tsp. ground Ginger, or 2 T freshly grated
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. EACH - cumin, ground fennel, cinnamon, allspice, dried mint leaves
1/2 c. Lemon Juice
1 can Garbanzo Beans/ Chick Peas, rinsed and drained (optional)


1)  Place all ingredients in your slow cooker EXCEPT garbanzo beans. Set to HIGH for about 6-8 hours, adjusting water according to the desired consistency. 

2)  Use a food processor to puree until smooth, in batches. 

3)  Add in the Garbanzo Beans if using, and heat through until warm. 

Garnish with lightly toasted Cashews if desired. Enjoy!!
