WIAW: Kale Quinoa Salad

Last week when I discussed detoxing, I teased you all with a recipe for a Kale Quinoa salad I came up with! Not only is this salad DE-freakin-LICIOUS, but it has a great mix of ingredients that are perfect for the end of Summer and start of Fall. Plus it’s full of some of those nutrient dense, naturally detoxifying foods that I mentioned!

WIAW: BodyCrunch Giveaway!

Hey all! On to my 3rd day of classes! I can’t believe school has really started. I’m already neck deep in reading and writing. The professors don’t like to ease you back into it I guess!

With that said, I wanted to make a few announcements. I think for this semester since I have my internship as well as a really full course load, I am only going to be posting 3 days per week (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday). This could be more some weeks, but for now I am going to dedicate myself to at least 3 days! Usually I have set posts for Wednesdays and Fridays (WIAW and Lend a {Healthy} Hand), but since I’ll only be posting 3 days a week, I am going to switch things up and not necessarily follow a schedule. Don’t worry, Lend a {Healthy} Hand isn’t going away! BY ANY MEANS! It just might go every other week or every two weeks depending on submission level and other topics I want to cover on the blog! Hope you’ll understand!

WIAW: Fun Foodie Mail

[I can't start this post without acknowledging the loss of Robin Williams on Monday. He was truly one of my heroes and it pains me even more to think that his death came as the result of mental illness. Yet another instance that proves are nation needs to put forth more effort and funding to treating these stigmatized diseases. In honor of Robin, I am asking that everyone make a special submission to the Lend a {Healthy} Hand project this week. For a man who gave so much joy to others, let's cheer each other up by sharing how we've helped others in our own lives lately. Leave your #HealthyHelp in the comments.]
