Here Comes The Sun…Shine!

This is not a normal healthy eating post.  I am so excited to say that Angela from uberdish nominated me for a Sunshine Award!  Thank you, Angela from uberdish!  I feel honored!  For those of you that don’t know, a Sunshine Award is an award that bloggers give to other bloggers in a way to recognize their blog as one that inspires others in a positive way.

I have always said that even if I change one person’s way of thinking about the food they eat, it makes all the countless hours at my computer and in the kitchen totally worth it. 🙂

Once you are nominated, you must link the blog post to the person that nominated you.  Then you must answer some questions about yourself and nominate 10 other bloggers and link back to their pages.  Once that is done, you must post a comment to each nominee’s page to let them know they have been nominated.


1. Who is your favorite philosopher?

I will have to say Michael Pollan.  His views on eating and food have changed my way of thinking forever.

2.  What is your favorite number? 


3.  What is your favorite animal?

I love all animals, but I have a pug, Floyd, so I will have to go with dog.  Elephant would be a very close second though.

4.  What are your Facebook and Twitter?,,

5.  What is your favorite time of day?

I will have to say mornings because I am so focused then and I seem to be the most productive.  If I had the chance to sleep in I would, but I have toddlers and they love to get up at the crack.

6. What is your favorite holiday?

Christmas for sure.  Not because I get gifts, because I give gifts and I love to see my kids’ faces on Christmas morning.

7.  What is your favorite physical activity?

Hiking.  I spent the better part of my twenties backpacking through the US.  It’s hard work to get to the top, but the views and the beauty of nature make it all worth it.

8.  What is your favorite non alcoholic drink?

Coffee.  I just drink mine with a bit of almond milk.  Yum!

9.  What is your favorite flower?

Calla lilies

10.  What is your passion?

  1. Congratulations on the nomination! I have only recently started following your blog but already I am hooked on the wealth of info you provide and the yummy healthy recipes. I am desperately trying to turn our lives around nutrition wise and finding it near impossible since the eating habits that my husband grew up with have made him resistant to ANY positive change and my teenagers, who used to eat more fruit and vegies when younger, are with my husband on this! Makes cooking dinner a nightmare because I don't want to cater to their unhealthy tastes! Anyway, keep up the great work! Kim xox
    1. Thank you! It takes a long time to change eating habits with family members that are hesitant. I would say keep making the healthy meals and hopefully, they may come around eventually. I have a toddler, who can be picky too and sometimes I try to disguise the healthy foods into foods she is more comfortable with. For example, the vegan mac and cheese. We have also made sweet potato french fries instead of ones that are made from white potatoes. Good luck with the family! :)
