The Hidden Cost of Junk Food + Ideas to Stretch Your Budget

Today, I’m happy to be sharing about a subject I am really passionate about: how cheap junk food really does carry a pretty steep price tag in the long run. So that I don’t leave you feeling hopeless by the end of the first section of my post, I’m also giving you lots of practical suggestions on re-allocating money in your own budget so that you can put more toward your food costs, if you are like so many others who want to eat Real Food but feel they can’t afford it.

The Perfect Summer Mocktail (It’s detoxifying too!)

Today I want to share with you the beverage that makes summer bearable for me. It’s the drink I whip up in a matter of seconds when my armpits are soaked with sweat by 11:00 in the morning (yes, because that actually happens).
