Mozzarella Recipes To Try

There have been a couple of foods that I have given up or slowly taken out of my diet (bye white bread) but one that I can't stop eating no matter what is cheese. I try to go dairy-free at least once a week (as I do with meat as well). Food & Wine magazine always has a great selection of cheese recipes in particular one of my favorite: Mozzarella.

I know that most of us don't have time to look through magazines to find recipes so here are some of my favorite Mozzarella recipes they have on their site:

Grilled-Zucchini Subs with Fresh Mozzarella and Olivada

Grilled Cheese with Spinach-and-Tomato Sauce

Since Fall is almost here (YAY!!!), I am finally going to start making new dishes with more vegetables in it so I'm super excited. Have a great start of your week.

Peace and Blessing!!!

Thoughtful Thursday

Here's to the week being almost over!!! I love a short week but I tend to forget what day it is when I have to get back in the full swing of things. This is going to be short and sweet since I have a full load of things that I have been putting off to do.
Here are some thoughts for today:

Peace and Blessings, everyone!!!

Fitness Tuesday

I'm the first to totally admit that I have been lazy the last week or so. Between school, my two jobs, interning, and my volunteering , I think I got another sinus infection. The plus to all of that is that I have been moving around and lifting so much that I haven't had to go to the gym. The last couple of weeks I have tried some new food brands that I have around. The main goal was to find healthy options that were reasonably price, which is difficult sometimes.

Here were a few of the brands that I've been eating and drinking:

I tried the Smart & Good Looking 7- Grain bread. The verdict is that it tasted really good. It actually tasted like a regular multi-grain bread. I think I'm going to stick to eating this for a little long. One great thing is that the bread can be frozen if not eaten in a timely manner.

Core Natural

Caramel is one of my weakness. I was a little apprehensive to try these at first, but I am so glad I did. They are so good!!! I only eat one or two since I don't really have a super sweet tooth. I know that sugar isn't the greatest thing for your body. That's what makes these great since they are bite size and you can control how much you eat of them.

Resource Natural Spring Water
This is my go-to water on a regular basis. Thankfully, where I do my main shopping (Kroger) always has these on sale for $10 for 10 so I stockpile them most of the time. They usually sellout so I end up going to a three or four of the stores to buy however many I want.

I drink water mainly so that is why there are two different types of water on here. I'm trying to cutback on sugar and other white carbohydrates for the rest of the year. I'll let you know how it goes.

Peace and Blessing!!!

Fall Clothes & Boots Wish-List

Hard to believe that today is the unofficial "last day of summer". I'm not complaining though  since Fall is my favorite season. The reason could be that the weather is not too hot and there are so many cute clothes to wear. That being said, here are some of the clothes and boots that I am wanting to get this fall

This Sienna Swing Tunic Dress from Show Me Your MuMu is what comes to mind when I think Fall: earth tones. I have always seen Fall as a season to experiment a bit or maybe that's just me. A dress like this is awesome because you can wear it until at least the beginning of spring when there's still a chill out. I also love the white & black.

These boots!!! I have been debating whether or not to by these Dolce Vita Opal OTK boots for the last 2 weeks. Nordstrom Rack has them for almost half of the retail value. The brown ones are sold out but they still have the black, my size, & it's the only pair left). Dolce Vita & Nordstrom Rack both have a great selection of OTK boots right now. Just a heads up though: Dolce Vita's boots are a little on the higher end but I think its worth it if you're like me and wear boots year-round. Yes, I was that girl this summer wearing boots with sundress and shorts. 

A Tunic like this I would wear with jeans like in the picture or as a dress paired with a jacket. 
I own some other Free People tanks and tops that I love because of the flow of them.

Another item that I have been debating about is this dress from Blue Life on Planet Blue. Like boots, I wear dresses like this year-round. This is the perfect Fall dress to me because its lightweight and can be dressed up or down.

I would wear these boots with everything this fall but sadly, they don't have my size. These two
shades of brown are perfect to wear with everything to me. They aren't too light but they aren't super dark either. 

I love lace in the Fall and Winter. I have no idea where I would wear this dress, but I'm sure I could find somewhere. Thinking with sneakers or boots.....

If you haven't noticed yet many of the items are things that I would wear year-round or at least three out of the four seasons. At this point, I invest in items that I love that I can transition from season to season instead of "fast fashion" item. What's some items on your fall wish list??

Peace and Blessing!!!

Thoughtful Thursday

Happy Thursday and first day of September. It's crazy to think that we are closer to fall than summer. If you live in the southeast like I do though, you are probably happy that fall is near. Between the humidity and the high pollen here, I am officially over summer. Here are some thoughts today to help you get some good vibes coming your way from Pinterest:




Have a great start of September!!!
Peace and Blessing all.
