Keep Glowing With Microwave Mug Berry Cobbler!

Disclosure: This post was sponsored by Weight Watchers through their partnership with POPSUGAR Select. While I was compensated to write a post about Glowfest, all opinions are my own.

I was happily surprised a few weeks ago at the arrival of an invitation to attend the co-sponsored Weight Watchers and PopSugar’s #Glowfest. I carefully read over the invite and liked the overall vibe of the event. I felt like it was attracting my body/mind/soul and energy and for all the right reasons.  Glowfest was an event all about putting importance on taking care of yourself. I am a woman in my early 40′s and am super conscious of how I treat my body and what I feed it. When I take care of myself I feel good. This is not something I have always practiced but am extremely active now in my daily nourishment, exercise, and rest. Glowfest was promoting these precious treatments for the body, and Weight Watchers new Beyond The Scale emphasizes this idea as well, so I welcomed the invitation and circled it on my calendar.

When the event finally arrived it was everything I had hoped for and a much more.   First of all it was held at Smashbox studios in beautiful Culver City. The space allowed the event to glow bright in it spacious serene setting. Weight Watchers did an amazing job of proving delicious food stations educating the attendees on how to eat within their new SmartPoints™ system. All the food stations were demonstrating that with Weight Watchers SmartPoints™ no food is off limits. Their plan nudges you toward a healthier pattern of eating so that over time smart choices become second nature. Being a girl who loves to eat, I was quite impressed with how tasty, better for you and attainable it is to eat within their points. Weight Watchers Beyond The Scale is all about a holistic lifestyle. Weight Watchers offers a holistic approach to healthy eating and a healthy lifestyle. They served lots of fresh vegetable, grains, eggs, beans, and fruit smoothies….nothing was off limits to my plate and I was happy.

Not only was the food amazing but they served it in the most creative way. Below is a picture of a vegetable garden, but it was actually an edible crudités garden. The base which looked like “dirt” was made of wild rice and black olive crumbs, all the veggies were ready to eat including the baby potatoes, and it was served with your choice of ranch, green goddess or chipotle dressing.

The fun didn’t end with the food. They had a manicurist on site doing nails for those who wanted to sparkle in the finger department, or just wanted to indulge in some “me time”. There were people getting massages at the mini spa and music filled the air with an extraordinary bad girl DJ pumping out the jams. Groov3 led a fun easy to learn dance workout, and everyone jumped along! The event busted at the seams with excitement. It dawned on me that working out doesn’t have to be intense, it could actually be a lot of fun. The key is to keep active.

keep glowing

I was inspired by the fact that the “keep glowing” motto not only encompassed an attraction to ladies my age but to women of all ages. It was uplifting to see so many people all of the same mindset of bettering their lives. Taking small steps to making for a better being, all while learning about Weight Watchers Beyond The Scale and incorporating a healthier approach to eating and being active in a fun workout routine.

I left the event with a reaffirmation of my own personal motto: Keep active, shine brighter than the stars with calm positivity, EAT to live….LIVE to eat, and magic will naturally follow you to keep glowing. <3

Valentine Cracker Candy Stealing Our Hearts

Valentine cracker candy. A sweet and salty confection perfect for your love. I got all my ingredients at Walmart.

I was really sick last week, and sent my husband to Walmart to pick up some supplies for me… you know the usual sick supplies everyone wants when sickness strikes: tissue, 7-up, flu medicine, and saltine crackers. My illness was so bad I had no appetite for anything except sleep. I never even opened the box of saltines.

Fast forward a few days into coming back to life. I realized I never touched the crackers. I remembered a cracker candy video I had seen over Christmas time, and how bad I wanted to try it then but you know how the holidays are….everything is a whirlwind. In my still partial sick dizziness I thought “Let me turn that christmas candy recipe into a Valentine treat instead.” Within minutes I was making Valentine cracker candy with the crackers I had leftover from when I was sick. Luckily I keep a well stocked pantry and had all the other ingredients on hand. Once it was made… I thought this candy is so crunchy good…. it’s stealing my heart.

I couldn’t wait this year… Feb 1st and already I was earning for hearts to appear. My son said he wanted to go to Walmart to buy Valentine’s day cards for his classmates, so I took the opportunity to look at all the Valentine paper goods while we were there.  I found so many cute inexpensive things that somehow made their way into my cart. valentine-paper-goods-walmartOnce I got it all home, my son suggested we should invite some friends over for an “Eat your heart out” party, and when I asked what he wanted to serve… he said “jello.” I told him only if I could make the jello in cherry coconut flavor and heart shaped. He gave me a look like that’s exactly what he expected. He and I got started making the jello while my husband decorated the kitchen with a banner I had made out of doilies and bakers twine. Banner made out of paper heart doilies and twine. I bought it all at Walmart. We filled little bags and take out boxes with popcorn and candy, and soon enough friends were over to enjoy our early Valentine Celebration. valentine's day party tableIngredients for cherry coconut jello hearts

Cauliflower Nachos For The Big Football Game

Cauliflower nachos for the big game. I got all my ingredients at walmart.

One of my best girlfriend’s is a hardcore football fanatic… some people even call her “Football Monique.” Needless to say she’s hosting a party for the big game this year at her place since her team has earned it’s way into the championship. I won’t be surprised if the whole house is decorated in orange, but that’s another story for another time. The real story is Monique became a vegetarian in August and was a bit concerned what she should serve at her party. I told her not to worry, I would bring something for us non-meat eater to chow down on that would rival any other appetizer on the table. I’m a nice friend in that way. Since I was quick to get mouthy I wanted to make sure I could pull it off. I drove over to Walmart, where I found tons of cute football themed napkins and plates and I also saw the”Marketside” line had cauliflower packaged for the reasonable price of $1.98. Whoa… My head quickly swam back to a few nights prior when I had just devoured a plate of cauliflower nachos at a trendy restaurant in downtown LA. I thought let me try my hand at some cauliflower nachos. I grabbed 3 bags of cauliflower and I roasted them as soon as I walked in the door to prep the white florets for a bigger and better venture… The game day cauliflower nacho platter! A platter to rival all nacho platters far and wide! May the best nachos win… I mean team!

Zucchini Soup Served With Cotija Cheese Crisps

zucchini soup served with a cotija cheese crisp

This soup is so good it gives me chills on my arm when I think about it. I know, that’s a crazy statement to make…. but it’s true. I think part of the reason it’s so great is because I made crisps to accompany it out of cotija cheese. Instead of eating bread, have a nice cheesy crunch in your soup. So easy to make as you can see from the photos below.

cotija cheese shaped in circles before the oven.  cotija cheese crisps go perfect with a bowl of soup.

Potato Mushroom Enchiladas In A Spicy Tomatillo Sauce

potato mushroom enchiladas in a spicy tomatillo sauce. I bought all my ingredients at Walmart.

A few weeks ago the people over at Walmart reached out to me and asked if I could create a vegetarian recipe to be a special centerpiece on their website as a Lent feature. That’s like asking me if I could snore like a bear in my sleep. Duh! I gladly accepted the job and got to work. First step…. go to Walmart and find my ingredients. Lots of people observe meatless Friday’s during lent, but I’m meatless everyday, so the second step was to think of what I felt like having for dinner that night. My hubby was along for the ride and is a potato fanatic so he kept urging for the use of papas. Without me even realizing he threw a bag of potatoes in the cart… Next I found some tomatillos, king size corn tortillas, and a package of 4 queso blend…. I said I guess I’ll make potato mushroom enchiladas tonight. It reminded me of a similar dish my Grandfather use to make during the lenten season.

As a young girl, it was a sure sign the start of meatless meals would begin when my grandfather would come home with a black ashy cross smeared on his forehead. In my community many people observed lent, and my Grandfather was no exception. He used to make capirotada and a host of other meatless dishes every Friday. That was part of his lent ritual. Fast forward a few decades my Grandfather (age 91) who I’m lucky to still have with me very much STILL loves to participate in the traditions of lent. I will be making this recipe for him during lent and for my family any day of the week they wish for it.

Agua De Fresa

Agua de fresa made with the added help of Emergen-C to help keep a cold at bay. I bought all my ingredients at Walmart.

My hubby was abroad traveling on business for a couple of months and returned home at the end of last year. He brought home with him a pretty bad cold, runny nose, sneezing, stuffy head…. you know, the works. He was basically helpless for about five days. That would have been fine, but he passed that awful cold right on to me right after he got better. I had the same symptoms, maybe a little worse, and for the same amount of time. My mother bear instincts kicked into high gear as I was sick. I didn’t want our son to follow the pattern and get ill after me.

I went straight to the source and started working on his immune system. I began with Emergen-C. My only challenge was finding a way to sneak it into his food or drink consumption, as the kid is a very picky eater. Even though Emergen-C comes in all types of wonderful flavors I still knew it wasn’t going to be an easy task to get him to drink it straight.

Emergen-C sold at WalmartI sent his dad to Walmart to see what flavors of Emergen-C they had, and of course he calls me from the store saying they have all the flavors. He says “They have raspberry, the boy loves raspberry.” I give him the green light to go with the raspberry flavor ($4.47) and ask him to pick up some strawberries while he’s there. He comes home with the Emergen-C and strawberries and watches as I combine the two ingredients in the blender along with some water and a little bit of sugar. He asks “What are you doing?” I give him a knowing one eyebrow raised look and say “Making agua de fresa, our boy’s favorite. He’ll drink it up and never know we added a little aid to building his immune system.”

Our son didn’t catch our nasty cold, and he loved his agua de fresa (with raspberry Emergen-C, wink).

Ingredients Agua De Fresa:

  • 1 – packet raspberry Emergen-C
  • 1 1/2 – cups strawberries (stem cut off)
  • 1 – cup water
  • 1/2 – tablespoon sugar


  1. Place all ingredients in a blender. All ingredients for agua de fresa in a blender.

Blueberry Flax Smoothie

Blueberry flax smoothie is a great on the go breakfast. I got all my ingredients at Walmart

To say I’ve made life changes in my everyday routine is an understatement. In the last year or so I’ve made incredibly big changes to my diet, big changes in my exercise routine, and I have made conscious improvements to my sleeping patterns. Actually my whole family has made these adjustments along side me. To me the morning is the most important part of the day. It sets the mood, creates a pace and prepares you for the rest of your waking hours. Because of this I’ve incorporated Blueberry flax smoothie into my world.

Smoothies for breakfast are a lot more beneficial than you realize.  A smoothie for breakfast helps hydrate your body and keep you from giving into empty carbs.  It’s also so quick and easy you can mix some up in the morning and your family can drink them before they leave or even sip it on their way to work or school.

People have this misconception that smoothies have to be prepared with a ton of sugar in order to be desired. This is not the case at all. I use greek yogurt, spinach, frozen blueberries, milk or coconut milk, and flax seeds to obtain a delicious and better for you smoothie. I start my day off strong with this 5 element combination.

Thanks to Walmart  I am able to find all the ingredients I need at such a reasonable price. frozen blueberries for $3.32, greek yogurt for $4.98 per 32oz. With prices like that I can make smoothies all week, keep my family well nourished and save money at the same time.
