Hey Ya'll!

It's 2018 and I want to share a little news with you about Happy Belly Life.

Happy Belly Life will turn two years old this year!  In 2017 Happy Belly Life experienced an official name change with the county of Monroe in New York State.

We changed from Happy Bel...

Holidays.  Holy Days.  Work-free days.

We.  All.  Love.  Them.

But do our bellies? :)

I find that often during holiday celebrations - whether it be a Memorial Day cookout, a birthday party, or the new year - healthy food and celebration don't always go hand...

Sometimes, we just need a little sweetness (without the aftermath of headache).

I've had a hankering for this chia seed pudding lately...I just haven't found the time to make it.

Another year another run.

Each year a great man named Mike Siudy hosts a short series of free, yes you read correctly, free trail runs.  These runs showcase one of New York State's finest attributes - the Shawangunk Mountains (#ilovewikipedia) - and other lovely areas a...

Spring is coming!  In fact, it's already just wouldn't know it from looking at the trees.

With Spring comes a lovely abundance of fresh produce, something us winter folk can certainly appreciate after months of eating imported and preserved foods.

I apologize for and give great thanks to the cow who was slaughtered in the making of this meal.

I eat and advocate for a while-foods, plant-based diet; but I also concede that one size does not fit all, and that some bodies need a little meat once in a while.
