    I had better get busy, right? 


    Hannah and I had a girly afternoon yesterday.  We went to get mani/pedis!  It doesn’t get more girly than that, does it?  As I was soaking my feet, I couldn’t help but notice that I felt like I had been transported back in time.  The music in the nail salon contained the some of the following:

    • “I Will Always Love You” – Whitney Houston
    • “I Can’t Live (If Living is Without You)” – Mariah Carey
    • An odd Michael Jackson song that would only be heard in a nail salon.

    It was a great way to spend the afternoon.

    I am taking part in a challenge with some friends this month.  The challenge began on June 1st and goes though June 30th.  Each individual chose their own challenge and we were paired up with a buddy to help keep us accountable.  I chose to give up my beloved jelly beans, as I was getting a little out of control with them.  My dentist would not be pleased to learn that I was eating them after lunch and dinner daily.  I didn’t want to try to eliminate anything that would cause me to hyper-focus on the food that goes into my mouth, but I certainly don’t need that extra sugar in my diet.  I chose to instead focus on choosing better dessert options, should I feel the need to have one.  Mini Larabars make a great gluten-free dessert! They are between 90-100 calories and come in 3 varieties – apple pie, cherry pie and cashew cookie.

    I get the sweet ending to my meal that I am craving without all the added junk. 

    What is your favorite gluten-free healthier dessert?
