1. I have been thoroughly enjoying my new Love Grown Foods Hot Oats every morning. I only have the peach flavor left to try, but so far, the Blueberry Banana Walnut is a shining favorite.

I’m about to confess something I’m sure you guys have been able to tell from my post-surgery updates, vacation notes, and photos like these captured by Ashley. [Her photography portfolio is to die for.. of course she would capture that business.] My fitness and nutrition have kinda taken a backseat to life for the past […]


It’s been a long time since I’ve participated in WIAW and shown you guys what I’ve been putting down lately. As I’ve said before, I could never make Life of bLyss a food diary. You all would punch your computer screen with every repeated meal. BUT, at Blend, things change. We all tried so many […]
