An interview with Andreea Fegan!

I am so excited about this blog post! I have been wanting to interview Andreea of Little Bites of Joy. We were  able to get together today and talk about the impact of her spring minimalism challenges! It felt like the perfect time to talk, right before the typical shopping season starts!

Here comes the amazing synchronicity spiritual part. I wanted to talk to her about coziness. A few years back, I felt like the coziness in my life had disappeared. I would tell friends  and they wouldn’t understand what I was talking about. ( I have figure a few things out like put a lovely candle and a bar of wonderful soap in your bathroom. It will feel cozy.) Andreea understands!  She just posted her latest challenge today!


Hygge is a Danish word which means the quality of Coziness.

Confession of a Health Coach!

This is Day 13 of the October Salad of the day Challenge. Andreea Fegan of Little Bites of Joy put the challenge together. I decided to do it to support Andreea. I eat well most of the time. Normally, I don’t eat a salad everyday. I have now for the past 13 days. Some interesting things have come up.

Here goes…

Confession of a Health Coach!

Last week was my son Tom’s birthday. Thursday, I made delicious brownie cookies for him to take to his program. Of course I had to taste them.

On Friday, his birthday we had cupcakes.  On Saturday, we went to a football game had peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in a pita pocket along with another chocolate chip cookie and a few pretzels. This was all pretty indulgent for me. On Saturday, after the football game I came home and ate a kale salad because I was part of the Salad challenge! I felt much better.

Today, for lunch I was about to eat leftovers when I realized. No, I need to make a salad.

Kale,Swiss Chard, Lettuce, Chicken, cheddar cheese, eggplant, cashews, tomatoes, DELICIOUS!

I have made it easy for myself. I make a big kale salad and it can last for a few days in the refrigerator. You can clean and wash your lettuce ahead of time. The ingredients are all ready to go.

This all works so well with THE PROGRAM. I always add protein to my salad if it is a meal. I have a rotisserie chicken in the refrigerator…chop it up throw it into your salad. It makes it easy! I have noticed that I am really full because I am eating big salads.

Small changes can make a big difference. Join the October salad a day challenge. Andreea has more great tips!
