unicorn fun in the sun

I can’t wait for summer!

And since I want to look cute while I’m doing all these fun things, I make sure to protect my skin from the sun.

The problem is, some of the things we use to protect our skin from sun damage can cause other kinds of damage. Continue reading


Three ingredient sesame shrimp and broccoli…

is crazy good.  And easy.  With minimal cleanup.

This meal is compatible with Paleo, Primal, Keto and low carb lifestyles.  If you just like eating good food made from real ingredients, that’s cool too.

3 ways collagen peptides can give you a better body

I usually go for catchier titles for my posts.  Today I’m just being direct and to the point.  Because I think we all want our bodies to be the best they can be.

And in the interest of being direct and to the point, I am recycling this post.  It was first published in August of last year, but got so many views that I wanted to share it again.  I did, however, brighten up the picture which was really dark before.

3 ways


I’ve been raving about what collagen peptides do for your skin since I first started hhh.  My skin is firmer today, at age 51, than it was ten years ago.  Collagen peptides can also strengthen your hair and nails.  But today I’m going to tell you how amazing they are for your body.

These steak fajita bowls…

were pretty much the best thing ever!

Super easy to make, delicious, and packed with quality protein, healthy fats and antioxidants for gorgeous skin and a hot body.  

If you’re eating paleo, primal, keto or Whole30 they’re a perfect fit. 

And if you just like to eat good food they’re still a perfect fit.

This meal came together quickly.  The only time consuming part was all the chopping.  Just put on some music and you’re good to go.  Totally loving “Delicate” by Taylor Swift and “Whatever it Takes” by Imagine Dragons.  

Here’s what you need for these fajita bowls… Continue reading

Here’s the perfect way to use up those Easter eggs…

my BLT egg salad.

leftover easter eggs?

It’s pretty much the best lunch ever.

Totally covers all the bases…high quality fat and protein, and tons of antioxidants from the fresh veggies.

If you are eating Paleo, Primal or Keto this fits right in.  It’s even Whole30 compliant if you use bacon without any added sugar.

Oh yeah, and it tastes amazing.  And takes just a few minutes to make.

By the way, the eggs in this pic are just a hodgepodge of colors.  I did not dye any eggs.  Love getting fresh eggs from my sister that are all different colors…the blue is always my fave of course!

Here’s all you need:

So what’s in this coffee that I’m raving about? Continue reading

My fave new breakfast combo…

is seaweed and eggs.

seaweed and eggs eliz

Yep, seaweed.

I can’t take credit for this idea…I saw it on Instagram and had to try it immediately.  And now I’m hooked.

I’m always talking about adding veggies to your eggs in the morning.  It’s a great way to start your day with an extra boost of vitamins and minerals.  It might be spinach, or leftover roasted veggies, or maybe just dicing up a bell pepper and throwing it in.

And all of those all good.  But sometimes you’re totally out of veggies.  Or just want something different.

Here’s what I used: Continue reading
