There is just something really special about a couple of tasty ingredients rolled up in a tortilla. I call it Heaven, but I guess some people call them tacos. I’ve gathered six of my favorite taco recipes from Pinterest and put them here for you to drool over. Pick one, or all, and enjoy tonight! Just click on the photo to be taken to the recipe page.
Every weekend it seems that I wake up and either want pancakes or waffles for breakfast… and given it’s Wednesday it seems it happens more than just the weekends. If you eat well and exercise often, you don’t feel guilty about eating some… well… at least I don’t. We usually go out for breakfast at least once on the weekends but lately I’ve been craving homemade piles of fluffy goodness. So I scavenged through Pinterest and found some pancake recipes I want to give a try. Maybe you’d would be interested too? Just click on the photo to learn the recipe. Enjoy!

I posted the post “My Top 6 Favorite Restaurants and What to Eat” a couple years ago and those restaurants we still frequent often but Jonathan and I have discovered some new yummy favorites. So if we are not in the mood to cook we head to one of these delicious places. We’ve been going out a lot for brunch which is why you my notice 3 out of 5 of the places offer brunch. If you live in the San Diego area or maybe you are just going to be visiting, please stop in to one (or all) of these amazing spots and fill your tummy up with fabulous food.
Hands down the best Indian Food in San Diego… no joke. They also have locations in Anaheim and Corona.
What to EAT: My favorite is the mushroom curry if I’m feeling vegetarian or the chicken Makhani if I’m wanting meat. They both have so much flavor! Make sure to order a combo so that way you get rice, naan, and daal.

Happy Tuesday! I know I usually post these on Monday but I just didn’t get it out in time. So are you ready for 3 new things to focus on this week that are all good for your health? Good… here they are… enjoy.
Eat a salad everyday for a week
This week’s “To Do” is to eat a salad everyday for a week. Either for lunch or dinner, with or without meat. Load it up with healthy, fresh, organic vegetables and use an oil and vinegar type dressing. Add some nuts or seeds and challenge yourself to make it colorful as possible.
Eating a salad will fill you up but not with a ton of calories. They are also a great way to get a big dose of fiber and a healthy serving of vegetables. They are quick and easy to make and also great for on the go. You may find yourself dropping a couple pounds by just supplementing your lunch or dinner with a salad.
“Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated” – Confucius
The theme this week is “simplicity”. Everything this week is simple to do… enjoy!
This week’s “to do” is to look at the different areas in your life (work, family, finance, fun, etc.) and find areas that you can simplify… allowing or opening up more time for other things that you enjoy doing. I often here people saying all these things that they want to do but then always saying they are “too busy” to do so… so let’s make it happen.
Where can you simplify?
Remember that saying no isn’t always a bad thing… because what you say no to means you are saying yes to something else, and sometimes that yes is time for yourself and the things you love. Doesn’t mean you can say no to your workouts… you need your health too.
I can’t really give you an example given that simplifying looks different for everyone, but it could be cleaning out your closet, re-arranging your schedule to allow more free time, prep a few meals in one night to make cooking easier the rest of the week. I encourage you to really take a look at what can be simplified in your life. We all have something, it can be extremely good for your health… and may even open you and your time up for even greater things.

Every morning I whip up a smoothie for Jonathan and I to enjoy. I usually drink mine for breakfast and this morning I was in the mood for something tropical. I threw in a few things, blended it up and Jonathan seems to think it’s my best smoothie yet. We named it the “Green Parrot” after the family of green parrots that live here in Ocean Beach. Give it a try and let me know what you think.
