This was our FOURTH (don’t’ ask) Disney family vacation. And this time, because of my sobriety, there were no more early happy hours to help me numb my way through the particularly unique experience of spending twelve hours with three children locked in a theme park. We dodged thousands of people with no sense of […]
This is such a great bowl for when you’re on the move or when you waited too long to eat lunch (that would be me today – blank face emoji). I made a salad out of it last night and today decided to make it different and leave out the greens and salad dressing. YEESSSS!! […]
I’m Dana. In my former life I was a reporter and some time anchor at the NBC affiliate (9News) in Denver, Colorado. I’m also in recovery from a nasty addiction to pain killers that I developed after hip surgery a few years ago. After getting clean I decided to cultivate a healthy lifestyle in order […]
We are busy almost every weekend, and I can’t say I like it all that much. But with three #gremlins and a husband who likes to stay on the move, it’s difficult to avoid. Sigh. BUT! I do make sure I find a few minutes here and there to slow down, take a few deep […]
I just love love love this, and not just the color. Smile emoji. My throat started tickling a while back and I made this to help fight off whatever the hell I was catching from one of my #gremlins (we know schools are like large germ incubators). There really isn’t much of a recipe. I […]
This one keeps me in that Euphoria state of mind (figuratively- wink emoji) before starting all the Saturday activities with my gremlins. You should see them now, dancing around the kitchen dancing to Portugal The Man eating Jersey Mike’s sandwiches while the dog barks – wishing and hoping someone will drop part of one of […]

The Perfectly Imperfect Mom From the get go I was going to be a supermom to my oldest (who’s almost ten). The ultimate Super Earth Mom! I daydreamed about being the perfect co-sleeping, breastfeeding, taking-my-child-everywhere-strapped-to-my-torso type of mother. I even had a vision of me growing out my natural hair into a hipster millennial afro […]
I just love the green and red color combination in this smoothie bowl. It reminds me of the holidays. Christmas tree emoji. Plus, this one is packed with so many nutrients and good plant protein. See below for the recipe: 1 1/2 cups coconut milk handful frozen cauliflower 1/3 cold avocado Some raw spinach 2 […]
This color says enough right?!? And it’s just a simple blue majik spirulina latte. Spirulina is amazing brain food. It’s a single called algae packed with plant protein and amino acids to energize you throughout the day. Recipe: 1 cup hot coconut milk, 1 tbsp tocos from Sunpotion.com, 1 tsp raw manuka honey (great for […]
This girl … My oldest.
