Learning From My MistakesI still make my share of mistakes on my quest to eat healthier. I think I do pretty well with my NutriBlasts and what I eat during the week, but there’s always that one weekday that trips me up. I used to have a big problem with my cheat day, a day during the week where I rewarded myself by eating regular food that I didn’t usually eat during the week. It took me a long time [...]

About twice a week, I enjoy skipping off to one of those gourmet coffee shops and having the barista whip me up a nice, ice blended mocha.
