Breakfast pizza

Breakfast recipe healthy lifestyle blog

When breakfast oatmeal and protein shakes start getting old- it’s time to get creative. Days when I used to skip breakfast are long, long gone. Most of the time I don’t have much appetite in the morning and I have to force myself to eat, because as we all know… breakfast is the most important meal of the day. This “forcing”, however, becomes much easier when  breakfast food is as delicious as pizza. [Read more...]

Spring. It’s finally here! Although I do have to say that yesterday felt more like Summer. We’ve spent all day sitting outside, doing some yard work and relaxing in our backyard. Just sitting there with my eyes closed, letting the sun rays hit my skin, I felt so grateful. Grateful for this beautiful nature, the sun, the wind, the trees, the birds that were chirping all day long, all those things that we very often take for granted. Even our dog Blu stretched himself on the deck and was basking in the sun rather than running around chasing squirrels (or barking at the neighbors :) ). It was an unbelievably gorgeous day and I actually got a little sunburn. A day like that called for some hydration and because water with lemon tends to get old at times, I decided to try making watermelon-cucumber mint water. [Read more...]
