Happy Earth Day 2015!

We are celebrating this Earth Day by venturing into new, uncharted green living territory – gardening. I’m not talking planting some things outside and not using pesticides, but actual grow something to eat type gardening.

A little background on me. My grandmother has the greenest thumb I know. She had a garden that I helped her weed and harvest from. From as far back as I can remember she could grow anything from anything. Only have a leaf? No problem. She can turn it into a tree like some sort of superhero x-men. Me on the other hand. Give me a robust plant and I will give you back a shriveled up thing. Yeah it is that bad. 

But I have succumb to a positive peer pressure of wanting to have my own garden. What better month to get started than April? So here we go, come join the ride with me and send some positive vibes towards my plants.

To start your own yogurt cup garden:

  • High Mowing Organic Seeds
  • Yogurt Containers
  • Organic Potting Soil 
  • Water
  • Small Spoon/Shovel
  • Super Cute Baseball Hat is optional 

1. Fill the cup almost to the top with soil. Add water making it moist not soggy.

2. Place 2-3 seeds per container.

3. Cover with soil and find a nice sunny spot for your plants to grow.

Our yard is not ideal for a garden. Plus add to that 2 large dogs and it would be torn up within minutes. For now, we are keeping our seedlings in the kitchen window which gets a lot of sunlight. In a few weeks, hopefully, we will be on our way to our very first organic garden!

Have you ever wondered where our emotions come from? Or what is happening when we have an outburst? The all new e-MOTION picture from Disney, Inside Out, is introducing us to the little voices inside our heads. 

Inside Out free printables, Inside Out Activities

Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it’s no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life.

As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. When something happens to the core memories Joy and Sadness need to band together to get them back where they belong. An adventure ensues and we fins out just what goes on in that big brain of ours. 

The voice cast for this movie is amazing. Sometimes you see a movie and think yeah so and so was good, or this cast is pretty great. Other times you hear a cast and think no-one else could do this, these parts were made for them. Inside Out is like that to me. I don’t believe I could have picked anyone better to voice each emotion. Who doesn’t think Lewis Black and not think angry?

Skinnygirl Tasty Nutrition Bars, #SGSavvySnackers, Skinnygirl discount code

One of my favorite on the go snacks are bars. Protein bars, fruit bars, you name it. They fit easily into any bag and are quick to grab on my way out the door. Not all bars are created equal not only in nutritional value but also in taste. 
 
Awhile back, I tried out Skinnygirl’s original Tasty Nutrition Bars and they were so good I felt like I was cheating on my diet. The Skinnygirl bars are nutritious, delicious, and leave you feeling satisfied for hours.
 
These bars make a great companion for your fitness, weight loss, or weight management goals. They are less than 200 calories, an excellent source of protein, good source of fiber, gluten free, Kosher, and are made without artificial sweeteners or flavors. These bars make a perfect anytime, anywhere healthy snack!

Joining the line up are three new girls: Lemon Swirl, Dark Chocolate Almond with Coconut, and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Protein

The hardest thing about these bars is choosing which one to try first. I mean I love lemon, chocolate, and cookie dough. In the end I don’t remember which one was given the honors but I can say they are all yummy.

Whether I am headed out the door for a run or coming back from the gym I use these bars as a snack to keep me going. Unlike some other brands they do not have a weird chalky texture or that artificially sweetened aftertaste that are just nasty. I can enjoy my Skinnygirl bars knowing that they are good for me while satisfying that sweet tooth!
