Tahoe Girls' Weekend

Hello, hello! Are you as happy as I am that Friday is almost here?

Before we head into another weekend, I wanted to share some photos from this past weekend as it's definitely something I want to remember. Two of my best girlfriends from high school came out to Tahoe to visit for the weekend, and we had a great time! My friend Meaghan still lives in Michigan, and my friend Katie now lives in Charleston, SC. They're both getting married this summer (only one week apart actually!) and so it was really nice for them to be able to make the trip out here so we could spend some time together.
 

We've been friends for over 10 years, and although it's sad we don't get to see each other as often as we'd like due to the distance, it's so great to be able to pick up right where we left off whenever we are together. I took few pictures here and there throughout the weekend, some Instagrams/some with my actual camera. Basically we drank wine, ate way too much food, went skiing at Heavenly, they got to witness getting some snow here in Tahoe, and we just relaxed and enjoyed each other's company. 

I'm obsessed with these orange tulips

I hate when the photographer has you take a picture with no goggles, it's always so hard for me to keep my eyes open because it's so bright with the sun and the snow!

A storm started blowing in on Sunday afternoon and it got a little snowy, but it's nothing that a good batch of chocolate chip cookies and a chick flick can't fix! Friendship is definitely a blessing and I feel extremely fortunate to have these girls in my life. I'm so looking forward to celebrating at their weddings this summer! Xoxo

The Perfect Valentine's Day Gift

Happy Hump Day everyone! 

It's hard to believe we'll be done with January by the end of this week...this year is flying by already! February means that it's time for Valentine's Day, and if you're anything like me, it can be tough to figure out what to get that special someone (haha such a corny Hallmark phrase). Cam and I don't really tend to do big gifts for Valentine's (or any holidays/occasions really) because we'd much rather spend money on going out for a really nice meal, making a bigger purchase of something we'll both use (like our camera), or taking a trip somewhere (this is where most of our money goes, which is fine by me because travel is the #1 priority for both of us). At the same time, it is nice to come up with a thoughtful surprise for Valentine's Day, but it can be so tough to think of something. Enter Datevitation Coupon Books


 Datevitation offers custom coupon books that you can personalize with all sorts of fun date ideas. You can chose a personalized cover/intro message and it definitely doesn't need to be specific to Valentine's Day as they have really cute covers for anniversaries, birthdays, etc. You can choose all sorts of fun dates and personalize the text to whatever you like...here are some of the pages I picked out:

{Ok, so maybe this one was a little more for me...ha!}

 So cute right?

The best part is there is still time to order your own Datevitation Coupon Book in time for Valentine's Day, and they're offering all my readers a discount! Just use the code 'PINKANDGREEN' at checkout for $10 off your purchase from now until Feb. 3rd (which is the cut-off date for ordering books and still receiving them in time for Valentine's Day)! I'm so happy with the way mine turned out and I can't wait to give it to Cam in a few weeks! Xoxo


 PS: I know I posted them on Instagram this weekend, but how gorgeous are these orange tulips? I randomly picked them up at the grocery store last week and they make me happy every time I look at them...it's the little things in life! :)

{Paleo} Spinach + Artichoke Dip

Happy Tuesday friends! 

I am still getting back in the swing of things this week after having friends in town this weekend. We had a great time together, and I'll be sharing some photos later on this week. Today, I wanted to share the recipe for a little snack I made for their visit. Now that I'm finished with the Sugar Detox, I'm going back to just eating Paleo most of the time, with a few indulgences here and there (which I may or may not have gone a little overboard with this weekend in the form of wine and chocolate chip cookie dough...whoops). I wanted to make a snack for us to enjoy that would be a little healthier but still delicious.


Enter this Spinach and Artichoke Dip. Ever since starting to eat Paleo last year, I have been a huge fan of the blog PaleOMG. Her recipes are delicious and she's hilarious, so it's definitely a go-to resource for me when I'm looking for some kitchen inspiration. I stumbled upon her recipe for Spinach Artichoke dip awhile ago, and I was eager to give it a try. She gives two options for the recipe; one is strict Paleo/dairy-free, while the second version includes goat cheese (which is not technically Paleo, but oh well). I love goat cheese so I decided to go with the second option, and it turned out great! The dip tastes great warm, but it's also great cold and can be made ahead of time for a party. I originally served the dip with Terra Sweet Potato chips, and they tasted great together. However, it can also be served with any sort of crackers/veggies that you'd like. 


Spinach and Artichoke Dip (two ways!)
Recipe Source: PaleOMG
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 2-4
Ingredients
Version 1 (no cheese)

2 (14oz) cans artichoke hearts (mine were in brine), chopped
16oz frozen spinach
1 cup cashews, roasted and unsalted
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
Version 2 (with cheese)
all of the ingredients above
2 ounces goat cheese at room temperature
Instructions
For Version 1:
  1. Add frozen spinach and artichokes to large saucepan over medium heat and sprinkle with just a bit of salt.
  2. While your spinach thaws and artichokes warm up, pull out your handy dandy food processor.
  3. Place cashews in food processor and turn on. Grind until your cashews become a flour then begin to pour in your olive oil until you get a creamy consistency. Kind of like a super creamy cashew butter.
  4. Once your spinach is completely thawed and it’s all good and warm, drain the excess water from your saucepan and add spinach and artichoke to a large bowl.
  5. Add your creamy cashews and seasons to the bowl and mix thoroughly.
  6. Serve with sweet potato chips or veggies!
For Version 2:
  1. Follow all steps above.
  2. Add goat cheese to your cashews and spinach and artichoke mixture. Mix well to combine.
  3. Serve with sweet potato chips or veggies!

This would be the perfect thing to make for the Super Bowl this weekend (aka the Beyonce concert/four hours of hopefully awesome commercials), as it just tastes like normal delicious Spinach Artichoke dip, yet it's not loaded up with preservatives/excess fat. It's definitely going to be a staple when I entertain in the future! Xoxo

My Experience with the 21-Day Sugar Detox

Happy Friday everyone! 

Even though this has been a short week for me with the holiday Monday, I'm still oh so happy the weekend is here! I've got two of my best friends coming to Tahoe for the weekend later this afternoon, and I can't wait for them to get here!

I'm also super excited to announce that I completed the 21-Day Sugar Detox!

But before we get to that, I thought I'd share a few pictures first...this is a really long, wordy post and I thought a couple photos would be appreciated! After I took my Christmas decorations off our "mantel" (aka the brick area behind our wood stove) it looked so bare. However, we're really working on trying to declutter and so I didn't want to buy a bunch of new stuff to decorate it. I ended up grabbing a few odds and ends from around the house, putting them together, and I'm actually pretty pleased with how it turned out: 


  I think that the neutral colors are really fitting for winter, and for just using stuff we had on hand, I think it looks pretty cute! The old window is actually one from my husband's fraternity house. They were replacing the windows in the house when he lived there, and he ended up saving this one because it was so old and he thought it was neat...so I'm glad we finally have a place to display it!


 I also got a two new pillows at TJ Maxx the other day that I think make a nice addition to our family room: 


 Not huge changes, but it's little things like this that bring a smile to my face, especially in the winter when we're more cooped up inside!

And when your house is completely covered in wood panelling and your dog tears a hole in your couch with her nails that your husband tries to repair with brown duct tape, it's really the little things :)
 Ok, so now that I've shared a few photos, back to the sugar detox!

I talked about starting the detox earlier this month, and I honestly can't believe it's already over! The last day was Wednesday, and now that a day has gone by since I've finished, I wanted to talk more about my experience a) so I'd remember all the details and b) in case anyone else is interested in giving it a try.

I thought that the easiest way to do this is just break it up it up Q&A style...here we go!

What is the 21-Day Sugar Detox?
The 21-Day Sugar Detox is a program that was put together by Diane Sanfilippo, who is a nutritionist and also wrote the cookbook Practical Paleo. You can read more about the program here and download the PDF online (it does cost $21, just FYI). Without giving away too much of the information that's in the PDF, basically excess sugar is just terrible for our bodies yet sugar has a very addictive quality. The program is supposed to help you break sugar addiction by essentially removing all sugar for 3 weeks. So that means no grains, dairy, alcohol, fruit, or sweets of any kind for 21 days. It's basically like eating Paleo, but really strict and minus anything sweet.

How did I hear about it?
 I first read about the Sugar Detox over on one of my favorite recipe blogs, PaleOMG (which you should totally check out if you're not familiar with it--her recipes are great and she's hilarious). She talked about her experience with the detox and I remember thinking "There is NO way I would ever do that"...ha!

Why did I choose to do it?
  Over the course of 2012, Cam and I started adapting our eating habits to eat more Paleo and had really great results. In the beginning, we were pretty strict about it and only indulged occasionally, but as the year went on we definitely relaxed a little bit on it. However, in the last two months of the year, we really fell off the wagon between our trip to Turkey/Israel and then going to Oregon and Michigan for the holidays. We both over-indulged, and it just really showed me how much I really have issues with self-control when it comes to sweets. I will literally just keep eating them and eating them, especially if they're something seasonal like holiday M&Ms or Christmas cookies. So, our plan was to just go back to eating Paleo when we got home...but me, being slightly neurotic, wanted to do something more intense to start the year off on the right foot. I was considering doing a juice cleanse, but then decided against it because I'm just really not a big juice person, plus I wanted to do something a little more long-term. So I decided on the 21-Day Sugar Detox! I thought it would be a good way to begin the year, and then it would make going back to normal Paleo afterwards seem easy. And who am I kidding, I thought it would be a good kickstart to help shed some of the poundage I had put on over the holidays. But more than that, I really just wanted to help rebalance my body after feeding it crap for the past two months and let it recover and go back to normal. I also wanted things like fruit to taste good again; because I ate so much sugar over the holidays, things like fruit didn't even taste that sweet to me because my taste buds were so desensitized.

How was my experience?
I started the detox on January 3rd, and the first two days were definitely the hardest for me. I literally felt like my body was going through withdrawals and I had a massive headache. I went to an evening class at the gym on the first day of the detox--bad idea! I felt really weak (granted I was also coming back from 3 weeks of not working out over Christmas) and it was pretty terrible. One thing that's not allowed during the detox is sweet potatoes, with the exception being if you're an athlete/training, then they are allowed in small quantities after workouts. I did have some sweet potato that first day after the gym because I just couldn't stand it any more. But after that? I can honestly say that I adhered to the program 100% and did not cheat at all. I stuck to the foods outlined in the PDF (for anyone else that's done it, I did Level 3--which is basically the strictest/most Paleo of the 3 options) and I felt amazing!

Was it hard?
I can honestly say that it was not nearly as hard as I thought it was going to be. One big thing that I think really helped me is the fact that I work from home. I was able to control my environment and I didn't have coworkers bringing in sweets or asking me to go to lunch. I could make myself healthy breakfasts, lunches, and dinners and that made a huge difference, plus I was kind of isolated to temptation. I can honestly say that I was never hungry (meat and veggies fill you up big time!), and I really enjoyed experimenting with more recipe options. The only truly difficult part was going out to eat. I went out to eat 5 times while doing the detox, and I will say it's extremely challenging to try to adhere to the guidelines when you go to a restaurant because you don't know how food is prepared, and honestly at most restaurants there are sugar/grains/dairy in pretty much everything! (That was definitely eye-opening!) However, I did my best and it really wasn't that hard overall to stick with the detox for the 21 days. I honestly think it's a million times harder to have sweets around and tell yourself you're just going to have a little bit. ("I'm just going to have one Oreo, promise!" Yeahhhh right) When you go cold turkey and cut it out completely, it's really very freeing. Because certain foods are no longer an option, you really don't think about them as much, and that's what makes the detox not so bad.

And I really didn't cheat at all?
 I can honestly say that at home, I completely adhered 100% to the rules of the detox. As I mentioned, we did go out to eat 5 different times. The first 3 were to restaurants here in Lake Tahoe, and I got salad all 3 times. I had them just toss the salad in olive oil and lemon juice instead of dressing, and all the veggies in my salad were ok on the detox. One night, we did go out to a self-serve stir-fry place and I chose only shrimp and veggies and did not have any rice/pasta. However, I had to put a sauce on for them to stir-fry it so I chose the red curry sauce, which said contained coconut milk, curry, and lemongrass. It very well may have had corn syrup in it for all I know, but it was the best option of what was available and definitely didn't taste sweet. This last weekend in Reno, I got duck confit and I had the chef substitute veggies for the polenta it was supposed to be served on. For all I know the duck/veggies may have been cooked in butter, but from what I could tell, the plate seemed to meet the guidelines of the detox. So to my knowledge, I did not cheat at all, and if I somehow unintentionally ate something I wasn't supposed to, it was purely accidental and I never purposely violated the spirit of the detox/didn't eat anything sweet at all these past 3 weeks. Wednesday night was supposed to be my last night of the detox, but Cam ended up making pan-seared pork chops with sautéed cinnamon apples to go on top, and so that was my first non-sugar detox meal. (Technically, I probably should have waited till Thursday, but I figured I had already made it to the finish line and this point!) He sautéed the apples in a little bit of butter and just added some cinnamon and seriously, eating them on top of the pork tasted so sweet it was like I was eating a piece of apple pie!

Did I lose weight?
 The burning question I'm sure everyone is probably curious about. Yes, I did lose weight doing the detox. How much weight exactly? I have no idea. I chose not to weigh myself when we got back from being out of town for the holidays because I knew it would just make me frustrated. I could look in the mirror and see that I had put on weight, but I knew that going back to eating healthy and being active, my body would go back to where it needed to be...but I just didn't want to know the exact number on the scale, because that's not super important to me. However, I did weigh myself a few times near the end of the detox just to check in and my weight did go down. I'm now back to the weight I was at for the majority of this year eating Paleo and feel like myself again, so I know that my extra holiday weight is gone.

Did I see any other positive benefits?
Absolutely! Beyond feeling leaner, I observed many positive changes. I noticed that after the beginning of the detox, I didn't get migraines at all beyond the first day (where as before I'd struggle with getting them on a weekly basis and sometimes more frequently). I felt more balanced, I felt like I could think more clearly, I felt happier, and I definitely felt like I had more energy, especially at night. Another main thing I was hoping to gain from the detox was clearer skin. While I definitely think that my skin improved over the past 3 weeks, it's still not quite where I'd like it to be. Don't get me wrong, I do think that cutting sugar out helped my skin a lot. However, I also started using my new Clarisonic at the same time I started the detox, and I know that people say that can make you break out more when you first start using it, so that may be part of the issue.

What did I learn? 
 I feel like that I learned so much over the past 3 weeks, and they're lessons that I plan to carry with me moving forward. Here are the most important things that this detox taught me (and I realize some of these things may be obvious, but they aren't always to me): 

-I have more discipline than I give myself credit for: Starting out, I really wasn't sure if I could do this. But I did. I'm stronger than I think and doing this detox definitely helped prove that to myself. 

-I don't need sugar, I want sugar: Often times in the past, I thought I needed sugar, that I had to have dessert. These 3 weeks taught me that's not true. I can survive without it. That's not to say I didn't get cravings on the detox, because I definitely did. However, it showed me that if I don't have sugar, I'm going to be ok. It also helped become much better at distingushing between a mental craving (aka the thought that a bowl of chocolate chip cookie dough sounds really delicious) vs. actual hunger (aka it's been 4 hours since I ate, I need a snack or a meal with protein and healthy fat)

-Tea is amazing: I drank a ton of tea during the detox. I typically drank a cup of green tea every morning (I don't typically have coffee in the mornings, only on the weekends if Cam and I make it in the french press/go out, so this wasn't too much of a change) and then a cup of peppermint tea at night and now I'm totally hooked. I discovered it's more the ritual of having a bowl of ice cream or a cup of hot cocoa that I like, and making a hot mug of peppermint tea is a really good replacement. This is definitely something I plan to continue even though the detox is over!

-Weekends don't have to derail you: Normally, Cam and I eat really well during the week and then sometimes I feel we go into the weekend with the attitude that we're already resigned to just eat terrible because "we deserve it." During the detox, I had to eat healthy all through the weekends, and it was really nice to wake up on Monday and not feel all bloated from the past three days. It made me realize, just because it's the weekend, I don't have to indulge. It's my choice, and if I wake up on Monday morning feeling heavy and groggy, I only have myself to blame.

-Veggies are delicious: This detox forced me to eat more veggies, and I really enjoyed incorporating them more heavily into my diet/trying new varieties. Also, when you cut out sweets/fruit, you realize just how sweet certain veggies are like red peppers and snap peas, and they taste amazing!

-I have more empathy for people with food allergies: Going out to restaurants it was super annoying to be "that girl" and to ask a million questions about how the food was prepared. It definitely gave me insight into what people who have food allergies have to deal with on a whenever they go out. It's so hard to know exactly what's in your food when you're dining out, but it's definitely made me realize that places will substitute things, and if you want to make a meal healthier, it is possible...just ask!

-You can go out with friends but don't have to overindulge: All the times we went out to eat during the detox, it was with friends. And much to my surprise, I didn't enjoy myself any less by not having a glass of wine/getting dessert/having part of the appetizer. As much as I was tempted, I still had just as much fun getting together with friends as I would have had I got some terrible-for-me meal and overeaten. Although I definitely missed having a glass of wine, I was fine without it and I honestly had just as much fun with my friends.

Any negatives/weird side effects?
The strangest side effect I had is that during the first week, I had crazy dreams and I'd be eating sugar in every single night. For example, one night I had a dream that I was in a giant room and all the walls were lined with boxes of cereal like Lucky Charms and Cinnamon Toast Crunch. I grabbed a huge bowl and poured all the cereals in there together and just started chowing down--and I literally had dreams like that every night for the first week or so. 

As far as negatives, my only one is that I really don't think I feel that much better having cut out fruit/wine. I feel like I would have lost the same amount of weight/felt the same had I incorporated those things in occasionally over the past 3 weeks. But I understand the point is to break the habit of always relying on having something sweet, and I wanted to give it my all and do the detox 100%.

{Yesterday afternoon I celebrated by having my first piece of chocolate in 3 weeks!}

What am I going to do now that it's over?
My plan is to go back to eating normal Paleo--so still not eating grains/dairy at home (and really eating most of the same meals I ate on the detox), but now allowing myself to eat fruit, and then also indulging in a glass of wine/piece of dark chocolate/coconut milk ice cream here and there. Granted, I won't be eating Paleo all the time and still plan on indulging in "normal" foods occasionally. I know some people who eat Paleo really have a strong adverse reactions to grains and dairy--I, on the other hand, feel like I tolerate them fine, but they just make me gain weight like crazy and I do feel more sluggish when I eat them which is why I am choosing to cut them out of my diet 90% of the time. However, after doing this detox, I'm less inclined to indulge in non-Paleo foods as much because the moderate enjoyment I might get out of eating junk food just isn't worth it. And it's true that now going back to Paleo does seem easier as I can reincorporate some of my favorite healthy foods like sweet potatoes and fruit that I eliminated during the detox, so that's my plan moving forward. (And it will be really nice to have a glass of wine later tonight!)

Would I do it again?
Maybe. If I feel myself getting too far off track in the future, I do think that doing something like this is a great way to get focused and recommit to your health. However, if I'm going to do something, I really want to do it 100% and with as much as we travel, it would probably be tough for me to do it hardcore again for 3 weeks. However, a lot of my eating habits are going to stay the same even now that it's over, and I know that the lessons I've learned will carry with me moving forward. 

Would I recommend it?
I would definitely recommend anyone who's interested give it a try! If you're not used to eating Paleo, it might be more of an adjustment/shock, but it will open your eyes to just how much sugar is in your diet.

 So there you have it! If you're still reading, I'm impressed...ha! If you have any specific questions about the detox, please feel free to email me! Have a great weekend everyone! Xoxo

{Paleo} Creamy Kale, Mushroom, & Sausage Soup

On Monday night, I posted a picture on Instagram of some soup simmering in my crockpot without thinking much of it. I didn't even really follow a recipe, I just sort of dumped a bunch of things together earlier that afternoon and hoped for the best.


 But the soup ended up tasting really delicious...and it's Paleo! Please don't let that turn you off though if you're not eating Paleo, as this is a great dish that anyone can enjoy. 


And because a lot of people have been asking for it, I thought I'd go ahead and try to do my best to share the "recipe"...which is basically what I can recollect of what I threw in my crockpot, along with how I might improve it for next time! 

{Paleo} Cream Kale, Mushroom, & Sausage Soup

Ingredients
2 carrots, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tbs olive oil
1 1/2 lbs of mild Italian sausage (so about 4 links)
1 lb. mushrooms, chopped or sliced (which ever way you prefer!)
2 quarts chicken broth
1/4-1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1 tbs. Italian seasoning
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground pepper
1 bunch of kale, chopped and stems removed
1 14 oz can of unsweetened full-fat coconut milk


 Directions
1. Sauté your chopped veggies/garlic in olive oil over medium high heat until softened, so about 5 minutes (and to be honest, you might even be able to skip this step if you're in a rush and just want to dump everything in the crockpot...but I just think that it adds a lot of flavor when you sauté them first!)

2. Add your veggies to your crock pot, and go ahead and add your mushrooms in as well (I didn't sauté the mushroom for what ever reason...I used crimini mushrooms, but feel free to use whatever variety you like! I also only cut my mushrooms in half and the pieces where kind of big, so I'd suggest slicing them up or chopping them instead)

3. Next, add your sausage--and you have a few options here. I chose not to unwrap my sausages from the casings, I sliced them uncooked, and added them to my crockpot without browning them first...however, they didn't slice very well and ended up being like big chunks that were more similar to meatballs...which actually tasted really awesome in the soup (and made it seem sort of like Italian wedding soup)! However, you could definitely unwrap them from the casings, brown the sausage first, and then use the ground sausage as well. I personally thought the flavor of the mild Italian sausage worked really well in this soup, but if you want to use spicy or some other flavor, feel free! Or if you want to use something else like fully-cooked chicken sausage sliced up, that would probably work too!

4. After you've added your sausage to the crock pot, add 2 quarts of chicken broth and your spices. The amounts I listed for the red pepper flakes and Italian seasoning are just estimates, so season to your own tastes and feel free to add other spices if you'd like. Same with the salt and pepper, just season to taste and don't worry too much about measuring.

5. Set the crockpot to low and leave for at least 4 hours. (I only left mine for 4 hours, but I'm sure if you had to leave it for longer it would be fine)

6. After the soup has had awhile to cook, add in your chopped kale and your can of coconut milk and stir. Two things--make sure you chop your kale small! I didn't chop mine small enough and ended up with some big pieces that were hard to eat. Second, make sure you are using the correct kind of coconut milk as that's what gives the soup its creaminess. It needs to be full-fat canned coconut milk (it's found in the Asian foods aisle) and NOT the kind of coconut milk you'd drink/find in the aisle with the almond milk/soy milk. Full-fat coconut milk is amazing, it's full of health benefits, and I promise it does not make the soup taste like coconut at all! 


7. After you've mixed in the kale/coconut milk, turn the crock pot up to high for about 20 minutes to let the kale wilt down. (I'd avoid putting these two ingredients in for the full time, it definitely works best to add them in at the end like this!) Once the kale has had a chance to wilt a little bit, your soup is ready to enjoy!

 (Oh and in case anyone is wondering, I use a 6 qt. crock pot--this model here)



This is totally a recipe where you can change up the veggies and spices to your liking and just use what you have on hand. However, I really like the way the flavors in this soup came together as I think the creamy base flavored with the Italian seasoning and red pepper flakes paired really well with the mushrooms, kale, and sausage. I'm already looking forward to making this soup again this winter! Xoxo

PS: I'm guest posting today for a fellow Tahoe blogger, Tiara, over at her blog Ice Cream & French Fries! I'm talking all about our travels, so definitely check it out!

Emerald Envy


 In case you've been living under a rock and haven't heard, Pantone has chosen emerald as the color of the year for 2013. I personally am a huge fan of this choice as I think it's such a gorgeous color (and I'm not going to lie, it makes me think of the Wizard of Oz and the Emerald City just a little bit). It makes such a statement in fashion as well as in the home. It can be vibrant, rich, and unexpected depending on how you use it, and I've been seeing some great ideas pop up on Pinterest lately. Here are some of my favorite inspirations for how to use this beautiful shade: 

Green dining chairs are the perfect way to bring Pantone's Emerald home.

What about you? Have you hopped on board the emerald bandwagon yet this year? Xoxo
