I love these.

I've confessed to y'all my love affair I have with chocolate. 
I'm addicted and I've found something that quenches my need for it and leaves me with 0 guilt.

Trader Joes Reduced Guilt Brownie Mix.
Oh em gee.
I could definitely use a little reduced guilt added to my food.
These are SO easy and cheap to make.

1. Find your nearest Trader Joes
2. Toss in a couple boxes of their RG Brownie Mix and a tub of their nonfat vanilla yogurt.
3. Pour mix

      Measure 2/3 of yogurt and mix your heart out

It should look like fudge when you're done mixing

Pour batter in preferred pan.
I chose to make these babies as cupcakes today.
Instead of it making the typical 12 brownies, I made 18 little cupcakes.
I couldn't help myself, I added a little garnish of chocolate chips to each one..

Pop them in the oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes and...

A little piece of heaven in your mouth.
All for 86 calories, well mine were probably 95 due to the chocolate chip garnish.
You can really get crazy and add a little topping..

Eat your heart out.


Thanks for sharing Nikki :-)!!

Oooh, how yummy! I want a box. You make me want to bake brownies now, even though it's the middle of the night as I am writing you.

Celebrating 10 years..

Chris and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary on October 6th! We celebrated today by spending the entire afternoon and evening together, kid free.  I found a killer deal for couples massages on Groupon and learned that if a deal looks too good to be true, it is.  Things we've learned after 10 years of marriage; don't take yourself too seriously, laughter is the secret to a good time and chocolate makes everything ok. 

A healthier me.

Remember my Trust your gut  post?I feel like a whole new girl since I wrote that a month ago.  So many things have been confirmed and I feel like my happy healthy self again. 
All because of two things; 1. The gallbladder cleanse that I posted about.  Literally saved my gallbladder and my sanity.  No more stomach pain! And I can drink wine and margaritas without pain again! 🙌🏼
2. I found out that I have a sensitivity to gluten. It's still a mystery to me as to how I developed this but all I know is that when I do have gluten my joints hurt, I get awful headaches and an upset stomach along with bloating. 
Back to my first post about this... I took a "before picture" thinking I was going to 5-10 pounds and then post my "after" picture. 😂😂😂
Truth is, there are still plenty of calories in gluten free food. The other truth is I'm 80-20 gluten free. I still enjoy a few non-gluten free treats here and there (and then pay for it later). 
I love food. I reward myself wit…

Trust your gut

If you've followed me on Instagram for a while you've seen that I've been struggling with pain, nausea and some other lovely side effects every single time I put something in my mouth. 😭I've been in the ER, to a specialist and was about to go in for a hidascan before I canceled it 20 hours before I was to go in.  I was uneasy about the scan in the first place. I knew it was going to show issues with my gallbladder. I had every symptom. I also knew that the next step after the scan was surgery to remove my gallbladder. I know it's an organ that isn't quite necessary but being a mom with 4 small babes, surgery wasnt the best option.  I mean it would be nice to have an excuse to lay around for a bit but let's be real, that wouldn't even happen. 🤦🏼‍♀️ #momlife I felt this super strong thing come over me the morning before to scan telling me to cancel it and change my lifestyle a bit.  I love food y'all. That's no surprise. I have 17 pounds to lose to…
