Broccoli Pizza Recipe, Brought to You By Disney-Pixar's Inside Out

Do you ever look at someone and wonder what is going on inside their head? Disney•Pixar’s original new film “Inside Out” ventures inside the mind to find out and I can't wait to see it!  Unfortunately, we have to wait a little longer until it arrives in theaters on June 19th.
While we wait, let's make Pizza! This recipe is inspired by Disgust's lovely shade of green. This is "Is that Broccoli Pizza?". It looks delicious and it's a great way to get your kids to eat your vegetables; really it's a great way to get anyone to eat their vegetables!


Disney's Tomorrowland is a Plea to Put Aside Apathy and Remember the Future.

When I first saw the trailer for Disney’s Tomorrowland, I thought “That’s kinda cool.” I wasn’t overly excited for it, I knew I would want to see it, but I was a little apathetic as to when I would see it. I expected for it to be a fun Sci-fi movie with the signature Disney optimism and whimsy. What I didn’t expect was to walk away from it feeling like this is a movie that every person needs to see! Tomorrowland has the potential to inspire a whole new generation of dreamers and innovators, while reminding the older generations to put aside their apathy and remember what we once hoped the world would be.

Rejuvenate and Lose Weight With 3 Anti-Inflammatory Drinks

I have been working with my doctor to eat a more healthy diet to help with my arthritis and colon inflammation. There is so much evidence to show how food impacts our health. While I know this, it is still hard to stick to just healthy foods. I love to eat, even my travel highlights are often about the foods, so I am definitely not "all in" on eliminating the negative foods. But, as my doctor says, every little bit counts, so my goal is to find "healthy" foods that taste great and eat more of them and eat less of the other foods. That's why I was excited to share this article about the health benefits of certain foods with 3 anti-inflammatory beverage recipes that are perfect for Summer.

Spring Rejuvenators & Weight Loss Helpers:
3 Anti-Inflammatory Cocktails

It’s time to embrace the changing season and cleanse and rejuvenate our bodies with lighter foods, juices and smoothies, says nutritionist and juicing pioneer Cherie Calbom, MS. (“The Juice Lady”). What’s considered healthy and unhealthy seems to change on a regular basis, which is why it’s helpful to recognize further studies that confirm previous findings. Most recently, a study by Georgia State University microbiologist Benoit Chassaing has further confirmed the destructive properties of an inflammatory diet.

Pitch Perfect 2 Review, This is The Senior Bash

Pitch Perfect 2 is in theaters now. I know what you're thinking, Pitch Perfect was good on it's own why would they possibly make a sequel to it?! But you're wrong! So Wrong! Pitch Perfect 2 is the perfect follow up to the 2012 hit movie that introduced us to the Barden Bellas. The sequel lacks some of the heart of the first film, but it makes up for it with bigger laughs and good old fashioned fun. Where Pitch Perfect was the timid incoming Freshman, Pitch Perfect 2 is the Senior Bash!

Florida Living, Frogs In the Toilet and Lizards At Dinner

Imagine this, you're going to sit down on the toilet and suddenly a little face is looking up at you from in the water.... OMG! It's a frog!! Eeek! That's exactly what happened to my daughter the other day. She screams for us to come in to the bathroom, and there was this frog just looking up at us from inside the toilet. As soon as hubs went to grab him, he jumped from the toilet, to the tub to the wall, to the window, and back to the wall again before we finally caught him, (when I say "we", I really mean hubby, Princess and I were standing at a semi-safe distance doing our own jumping each time it would come flying in our direction.) Of course, I'm not afraid of a little frog...but this was no little frog! He was huge! and unpredictable!
