Welcome to my Musings of a Housewife


This week I’m is hosting the Inlinkz widget below. Scroll down to link up your own recent healthy recipe or meal plan from your blog. We simply request you link back to one of us, and that the recipes you share use primarily real, whole foods.

Today is the official first day of FALL! Can’t say I’m officially ready for colder temps just yet but that’s ok because I’m headed to Costa Rica on Wednesday with my Real Food Recipe co-host JoLynne and 28 other fabulous bloggers. It’s going to be five glorious days of sun, relaxation and brainstorming.

Today also marks Day 12 (woo hoo!!) of the 21 Day Sugar Detox. By now I’ve gotten into a natural rhythm with my eating habits. Going into week three I’m feeling positive and a little nervous. Traveling brings on another set of challenges. Not having 100% control over what I am eating makes me a little uneasy. I’m pretty sure I can maintain a sugar free regimen but the hardest part will be refraining from drinking.

As much as I LOVE my wine, it hasn’t been an issue yet. What has been an issue is craving chocolate and dining out. Wish me luck!

    Thanks for hosting this blog hop, Alison. I’m a first-timer here… So many amazing recipes to explore! Today I’m sharing some tips and tricks for “carb addicts” (like me) including healthy swaps such as my perfect pumpkin pancakes (sugar free, gluten free, and Paleo).
