Making Goals That Last: Keep Your New Year's Resolutions This Year!

Happy New Year! Hope you have had a wonderful holiday season! I'm here again to share a post about making life goals and sticking to them this New Years. 

As I write this, I update this post this year, I am, yet again, sick. Only this time, instead of being snuggled at home with my pup, I am holed up in my home office, getting work done, coughing, and drinking hot lemon water with honey. So long are the days of Christmas break, I am now an office-bound clinician.


Stash Hash: Delicious Post-Holiday Leftover Breakfast!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday week last week! We cooked the majority of the meal at our house, then transported it down to the MIL's. Because that's practical. While I'm all about someone else cooking and hosting, I do love having the chance to cook such a memorable, large meal. The best part? Having leftovers! When I'm a guest at someone's house, I don't get graced with leftovers, which is honestly, the best part. This year, I brought Tupperware down to the MIL's and divvied it up amongst my household, household. The MIL doesn't eat leftovers. Really!

Now, many people lover making new creations with their leftovers, but I've always felt, if I loved the meal the first time, I want to keep savoring it. Well, I had the chance to keep eating my Christmas meal throughout the weekend AND was able to try something new (I had a lot of leftovers). The creation? A delicious Stash Hash for breakfast (Stash - what you have on hand; Hash - hash).

Tips for the Holiday Season: Healthy Eating on the Go Part 1

If you’re anything like me, you’ve barely made a dent in your holiday shopping list. Now, it’s crunch-time! I’ve been heading to the mall or downtown shopping hubs several times in the past few weeks. Sometimes, I’m “shopping” for hours at a time (I use the term shopping loosely. I tend to wander around overwhelmed and bewildered longer than I actually shop). As you can imagine, I get pretty hungry by day’s end. However, with all the fattening, delectable food choices tempting us throughout the food court, it’s hard to find the healthy choices we know we should be reaching for. 

So what’s a shopper to do?
