Mostly Crunch blog has moved! Well kind of…

Apparently I never posted that I moved over to Blogger. Whewps!

This blog will remain here for all time, but I am now posting over at via Blogger! I would really really appreciate it if any interested current subscribers took a stroll over there at their leisure and subscribed to that blog. Pretty please?


Here’s a quick recap of what I’ve been doing in the mean time..

Due to have baby #3 in July! Eeeeep!

I turned 37. When the?? What the?? How the??

Tried to deactivate my FB account for a much needed break but everything helpful I ever shared disappeared as well and, well, it turns out people actually look and what I post and find it useful! That’s pretty exciting! So I reactivated and just logged off and am relying on sheer will power to stay away. Though all one has to do is log back in to reactivate anyway, so what’s the difference? None really. So silly.

My oldest is potty training like a complete ROCK STAR. Had his first accident on day 3. Uhhh, I’ll take that!

Is freezing. It’s been an extra cold and snowy winter. I’m happy January is almost over and we have one more crappy month to go.

I start a 4-5 month online homeopathy class tomorrow! Oh my excited!

I’m going to be a guest blogger on Little Owl Crunchy Mama’s “Who’s your crunchy mama?” guest post series! Stay tuned to for the link to that!

Hope all is well!


Sweet Potato Hashbrowns

What is it about sweet and salty food?? YUMMO- I say, YUMMO! These are so easy to make. I mean like 15 minutes from start to finish maybe? I guess I will time myself next time I make them which will probably be tomorrow because YUMMO!

You can make these however you like, change up the ingredients to suit your palate. Sweet potatoes don’t mind all the different ingredients to sass them up…that’s why they are called SWEET potatoes. Ba dum bum.

Anywho…here they are….ooooo ahhhh


You can find the super easy recipe here: Sweet Potato Hashbrowns

Homemade Plantain Chip Recipe

I feel like a dork even calling this a recipe. Slice up some plantains, fry them in healthy oil and sprinkle with salt. Ha! There it is! But I guess there are a couple more details than that.  They are super easy though!

Watch out, they are ADDICTING. Unless you don’t find sweet, salty and crunchy addicting. Right now it’s paining me to save the ones I made earlier for my husband. I think if it wasn’t our anniversary he might accidentally not get any!

I had been buying these from the store but they are made with canola oil which is no bueno. SO I decided to make them myself and as with most homemade stuff, I can’t go back to store bought now!

The Scoop on EPX Body and Epigenetics

Are you getting paid to lose weight yet? {There is NO catch!}

This isn’t like those other companies that say you can get paid to lose weight….if you become a rep and sell enough product to that you make a profit.

This is a company that pays its reps AND customers to lose weight using their products over a 90 day period.

It’s not a contest either!

They literally pay people to lose weight instead of paying some celebrity spokesperson to talk about how great the product is.

Here’s the breakdown:
• Lose 1-19 pounds during the 90 day challenge and earn an official EPX Body t-shirt.
• Lose 20-29 pounds during the 90 day challenge and earn $4 per pound lost.
• Lose 30-39 pounds during the 90 day challenge and earn $6 per pound lost.
• Lose 40-49 pounds during the 90 day challenge and earn $8 per pound lost.
• Lose 50+ pounds during the 90 day challenge and earn $500.

Check out the company here
and the challenge info here:

And of course hit me up with any questions!

We will be starting a challenge soon and I will be providing work outs and recipes to help anyone that wants to maximize their results and make sure they keep the weight OFF!!

L-Arginine, Nitric Oxide and Your Heart (and whole body!)

Two days in a row I’m posting! It’s a miracle! No actually my mom came over this morning and I was productive and stuff.

Did you know that nitric oxide is pretty much the most important molecule for our bodies? When we eat food with the amino acid L-Arginine, nitric oxide is naturally formed and it does amazing things for our health. Ah-may-zing.

I made a video highlighting what it does for our bodies and shared information on one way to make sure you’re getting enough; check it out here!


The what and why of adaptogenic herbs

I’m so sorry. No really. I really am trying to balance this SAHM of 2 and blog thing. I shared some information on my FB fan page but not here. For shame. 😦 I miss my WordPress friends and this is how I treat you? I will make it up to you soon! With my very own giveaway!

For now I want to share this video that I made about a special group of herbs called adaptogens and what they mean for your body. If you have chronic fatigue and a foggy brain and even thyroid issues then these herbs are of particular interest to you!

Turmeric Roasted Carrots Recipe

I’m still around! Anyone miss me?

My youngest has been crawling all over everywhere and as of a couple weeks ago he’s walking all over whatever he couldn’t get to before. Oh and he’s a climber. On all the rest if everything. He’s a monkey. And there’s my summary of where I’ve been lately.

I wanted to share one of my most favorite recipes. I could just eat these for dinner with nothing else. Aside from tasting so great they are amazingly good for you because turmeric is a wonder herb!
