Let’s Snoogle

Hi friends 😀 How was your day?

It’s hot as ballz here.

Tucson summers don’t mess around, but I love them. No humidity (my hair says thank you) and the monsoons are incredible.

Today was kind of a weird day. We had an ultrasound, which I was super nervous about but it ended up going well (!), and then this happened.


Nap time on the couch –which is a borrowed futon from my bro since our furniture is in the POD… and we broke it- with the Snoogle. Even for those without a gluten-free bun in the oven (dudes too!), check the Snoogle out– it’s the comfiest thing in the world. They have a ton of colors for the pillowcase too.. Amazon owns me.

I had a thousand things to do today, but sometimes resting is more important than being productive, ya know?



Eggs with goat gouda, salsa and brown rice cereal with almond milk and cinnamon

A weird combo, but it was very good 🙂


Chocolate-covered strawberry chia pudding!

In a bowl, I added:

-2 T chia

-1 T raw cacao powder

-1/2 pack of protein powder (my Sun Warrior came today! Thank goodness)

-1/4 C gluten-free oats

-1 C almond milk

-drizzle of honey and some cinnamon

After letting it chill it in the fridge for about 20 minutes, I stirred it up and topped with organic sliced strawberries and a drizzle of cashew butter.



I’m trying to get some ideas for meals this week since I’m feeling more into the swing of things. I feel like I haven’t really cooked in forever! [It was last week, but I haven’t consistently cooked in a loooooooong time]

Any ideas or recipes you’d like to see? I’m definitely making the gluten-free bars 🙂


Off to do the gym thang and hang out with the Pilot.

Enjoy your night!

    Chilaquiles! I just made them for the first time and they were so good but I’d love to see your version of them. I baked my tortillas instead of frying them but that was the only healthy modification I could think of. Also, I finally read the ingredients on my favorite green enchilada sauce and was way less than impressed. Any more natural green enchilada sauce recommendations?

    It’s so nice to read your “little nugget” updates! Pregnancy looks much better on you than it ever did on me.

    I have an idea for you and I won’t be offended at all if you nix it. I know you already have skymall, but maybe a have a tab here for your product reviews (good, bad and the ugly) and your favorite things so we can easily access them. Thank to your blog I am not a huge fan of TJ’s Roasted Seaweed (the check out people laugh when they see me with my basket full of seaweed), Coconut Cream Pie Larabars (the best and so healthy and filling!), Almond Butter (have you tried Maple flavor? Yum! ) and chia seeds (I mix them into organic Apricot applesauce). I sometimes see new things in the store and I can’t recall if you reviewed it. It would be great to click on a section of your blog and see if you thought a product was glorious or awful since so far I too have liked the products you recommended. Speaking of reviews…have you tried Pure brand organic chocolate brownie bars? I promise I have no connection with the company. Found them at TJs the other day and love them. They are GF and raw and IMO much better than any of the Larabar chocolate line (Chocolat?).

      ohhh good idea! maybe that can be part of the “fun” tab?

    That sounds good. Sorry for my typos…I meant to say I am NOW a fan of all those foods, but instead put “Not”. 🙂
