6 Steps to Save Time & Money By Weekly Dinner Planning

Sometimes it seems harder to plan a week’s worth of dinners than it does to go through the store and mindlessly choose things from the shelves.  Even thinking about what you’re going to eat five days from now is enough to make some people squirm.

Why Are You Really Procrastinating and Putting Things Off?

Last night, I watched the opening episode of The Bachelor with a girlfriend (need I remind you this is a judgment-free zone), and I made some Four Sigmatic mushroom cacao mix* instead of my nightly tea.
