Active rest days do not have to be much, they actually should be relaxed. Take a walk, play with the kids, jump on a trampoline, ride a bike. Yoga is a great active rest day routine. It is often my go to. Either yoga or hiking are my favorite. This day called for a wonderful hike. We did 7 miles.
Exploring comes natural to us. Adventuring the America we have had is great privilege. "Finding big foot" is always a pride to me. My lover is a very strong, and large, man. My Momma calls him big foot because he wears a size 14-15 shoe. And rightfully he is "big foot" ;)
*Note: yes I do believe Big Foot exists. No, this is not a humorous attempt to poke fun. In all actuality, Big Foot frightens me, which my family goes to great lengths to enjoy.
Family is the best way to spend time. Including the kids in health and adventure, win win!
5 Minute Marinara Hack, From Store Bought to Homemade in Minutes, No One Will Ever Know The Difference
I love me some marinara! My family plows through it like water. Marinara, in our home, is used for everything from spaghetti sauce, pizza sauce, lasagna, meatballs, dip, even with eggs in the morning; the use is endless. Without harvesting your own tomatoes, making and canning marinara is not cost efficient.
Therefore, I give you my own 5 minute marinara hack. "Homemade" marinara hack using store bought canned sauce in 5 minutes. No one will ever know the difference! Props to the cook with out the labor of boiling, blanching, crushing, canning tomatoes. Your welcome!

Marinara "Hack" do it:
Bring the jar of Newman's Own to boil. Filling the jar with the 1/2cup heavy whipping cream or 1cup milk, close and shake to get all the marinara off the sides. Empty into the marinara while it warms to a boil along with parmesan cheese (add to taste. I use 2-3tbsp.)
Turn to a simmer. Add 1tsp organic coconut sugar, a few shakes of red pepper flakes (depending on how hot you like it), 1/2tsp onion powder or 1tsp onion flakes, 1/2tsp Flavorgod everything seasoning, 1tsp-1tbsp Flavorgod Garlic Lovers (depending on your garlic preference), 1tsp dried parsley, 1/2tsp dried basil. Sea salt to taste.

For some reason, this video was difficult for me to post. I suppose I do have a part of me that is not completely confident, no matter how hard it is to admit. Then I thought of you all. You deserve down to earth fit[ish]ness. Not polished and choice but real. I decided this is me, this is what I do. I want to share that with you.
Do you remember watching 3 Ninja's or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles while running around the house in your gi? I sure do! Wither it was trying to be Rocky or a Rafael, the dream was real, to be a ninja! For me, that dream came true. For many, it has not. So, for you who were not ninja's, I bring to you "the dream". Your welcome!
