Hi guys and happy Sunday! Also, happy May!! Can’t believe it’s already the month of May. Only 10 more days then Summer for me:)

Absolutely adore Maddy Moon and her podcasts, and this post was spot on too!

Such a great topic that Cayanne touched on in this post!

Why calorie counting does not work

Never again will I count calories… it is so destructive and obsessive. Loved this post- so insightful.

Great post as finals are right around the corner!

The two mantras I swear by

I found myself nodding my head as I was reading this… Hayley is so wise! Love her <3

Why do we seek validation and approval?

Because it’s time to stop seeking approval from others and worrying how others see us!


Southwestern veggie bean bowl

Looks like the perfect lunch or dinner recipe.

Peachy oatmeal

I love oats, and I have never thought of adding peaches to them. Marina’s recipe looks amazinggg!

Chocolate quinoa breakfast bake

Chocolate as part of breakfast… I’m in!

    I will be coming back to this, because so many of the posts look really interesting. I think I need to read the calorie counting one. It might have some good ‘ouches’ for me. I would love to listen to Maddy too! :))) Thank you for sharing. LOVE you Lyss!
