Cheesy Eggplant “Garlic Bread” With all these “Pineapple doesn’t go on Pizza” memes floating around, I thought a good ol’ Italian recipe would be “amore” for this week’s Abbey Eats. Italian food is my favorite. Pizza, bread, pasta, more pizza… basically all the carbs. Who’s with me? Everyone can be Italian if they talk enough with their […]
Grab your rubber ducky, and hold him close for this read. We’re talking the dirty truth about the cleanest part of your day – Bath Time. A traditionally fun, froth-filled, lather laden event partaking in the bath tub, shower or sink for those new little humans. Unfortunately, it’s come to our attention that the general population may have been blindsided for some time regarding what they’re really using to get clean.
Often coined as ‘breast is best’, we feel fed is best! However, for those that proudly feed their boobie babes the liquid gold, whether from the source or pumping.. This is for you. Cows have nothing on ya!

What is Healthy Living?
Healthy living, by definition, is just that – “health” and “living.”
Healthy living encompasses much more than just food and exercise. It embodies everything else in your life; your home, your work environment and even your relationships with others. I mean sure, it is great that you are eating organic, grass-fed and even Non-GMO foods, but what else?
You’re at the grocer and get in line to check out with your three items. You glance up at the guest in front of you to get an idea of how much longer you will be waiting in line, all the while tempted by the woeful wall of candies and chocolate. It’s a couponer. Not just a one or two coupons (snagged off the pasta box while in line) either. But a bonafide binder-in-hand, ten of each item, total is going to go from $762.89 to $33 with gift cards after coupons – Couponer. All the while, you’re thinking to yourself, “ain’t nobody got time for that” or “why must you pick today of all days for your haul, when I just needed milk, coffee and goldfish crackers.”
The O word. Nope, not the one you’re thinking about, the other one; organic. What exactly does organic mean? That seems to be the question of the hour nowadays with the world of health and wellness going head-to-head with the food and Franken-food industry. Yep, frankenfood, it’s a word – look it up.
Meal planning. You may have overheard the soccer mom mafia talk about it or maybe come across a mouth watering photo montage of meat and veggies on Pinterest. Either way, meal planning is a thing, and it’s a nifty game changer at that, once you’ve mastered it.
Genetically Modified Organisms. Also known as GMOs, with a silent and unmistakeable taboo that surrounds them. But why? What exactly are they, and why are they all of a sudden the “bees knees” in the news, the grocery store and your box of Frosted Flakes in the cupboard?
