Pumpkin Pie Protein Smoothie Recipe

This past January, I made resolutions to get into better shape and to eat healthier. It was slow going at first, but I have been doing a pretty good job sticking to my resolutions this year. I have spent the last nine months running a few days a week and just trying to substitute some unhealthier food for healthier foods. I have learned a lot about eating healthier, and what and when to eat after a workout.

Do You Have Weak Red Blood Cells? Are You Anemic?

This past spring I was totally nuts for ice. I would eat cup after cup of ice, chewing, crunching and annoying everyone around me. I couldn’t help it. I just craved ice and I couldn’t get enough.

Yeah! Pumpkin Beer is Here!

There is a rumor going around that fall flavored beer is already out on store shelves. Apparently some beer drinkers are upset because they think that summer isn’t over yet. These beer lovers don’t want to even see a fall flavored beer until the leaves start to fall. However, I love fall, and would be thrilled to have pumpkin spice beer in the middle of July if I could get it.

Backyard Chicken Addiction

I purchased a few chickens this spring and started my backyard chicken farm. I must admit that I was a little apprehensive at first as to exactly how things would go. I worried about my chickens running off if they were let out of the coop. I was concerned other animals would get into their coop and eat them. The thing that scared me the most was that my husband has a bird dog.
