1 – What I’m Reading -


Everyday Healthy – An incredible little e-cookbook written by the insanely talented Lindsey and Bjork who blog over at Pinch of Yum

  • 42 healthy recipes with full size color photos, ranging from 200-400 calories and featuring simple, fresh ingredients
  • 6 types of recipes – salads, soup, meatless, chicken, slow cooker, and favorites
  • 7 featured blog favorites that have been published and well-loved on Pinch of Yum
  • Specific ingredient information (what it is and where to find it) for anything that might be new to your grocery list
  • Specific brand recommendations for my favorite sauces, spices, and canned goods
  • Nutrition facts for all recipes in the nutrition eGuide
  • Gluten free, vegetarian, and dairy free adaptations for all recipes in the nutrition eGuide

It also happens to be 30% until the end of today (July 31st – USA)  so if you’re looking for some healthy meal inspiration I highly recommend you grab yourself a copy. Then you can help me decide what to make first?!


2 – What I’m Drinking -

Vanilla Almond Milk

I am head over heels in love with this Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk. Its light and creamy with a hint of vanilla and I can not get enough.

Pour it on your cereal, put it in your coffee, use it in your smoothies or just drink it straight up with ice.

3 – Recipes I’m Pinning -

 Summer Vegetable and Quinoa Salad

This incredible looking summer vegetable and quinoa salad shared by the seriously talented (and incredibly beautiful) Lisa who blogs over at With Style and Grace – inspiration for a healthy, gluten free life.
