 Eat All Week Chopped Vegetable Detox Salad*

I’m not surprised at all that this one was in the top 3. It was repinned on Pinterest over 75,000 times just in the last 30 days! It is a great way to get a variety of vegetables in; just make it once and eat all week! It tastes amazing thanks to the lemony-ginger-garlic dressing. I recently have been using it as an easy way to add chopped veg on the top of my leafy green salads.

Slow Living Summer Recipes

This popular post includes summer favorites like Fruit Salad with Honey Lime Glaze, Fresh and Healthy Lime Soda, No Cook Peanut Butter Chocolate Chia Oats and Cheesy Tortelinni Crockpot Soup.

Soup in the summer? Why yes! When it is made in the slow cooker it keeps the stove and oven off and your kitchen cool. Several of these recipes are great all season long.

DIY Daily Sink Scrub Shaker Top

DIY Daily Sink Scrub

A two ingredient daily sink scrub makes me a very happy lady every time I use it! My sink has stayed clean and shiny with no built up gunk!

When I sprinkle this scrub into my rinsed out sink, the aroma that drifts up is great. It hits my senses and is very awakening. I used Purify by Rocky Mountain Oils in my scrub, which just smells like—clean! I love it!

Strawberry Chia Hemp Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

Quinoa For Breakfast – 3 Ways

Although it is a new year, quinoa is still my favorite breakfast. I just can’t get over how satisfying it is thanks to 8 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber in just one cup!

Quinoa is technically a seed, not a grain, and packs all nine essential amino acids your body needs. It contains iron, vitamin B, and my fav–the calming mineral, magnesium! This is just a few of the nutrients in quinoa, there are many more!

Easy Steak Quesadillas. Nice and brown and crispy!

Easy Steak Quesadillas

Just placing that photo into this post made my mouth start watering, and I decided that it is what’s for dinner tonight! I want to make something quick, filling, and delicious. This recipe is perfect.

The steak is well seasoned and smells amazing while cooking. Between the scent of seasoned steak and the aroma of the bits of cheese that fall from the tortillas into the pan, your home will smell amazing and your people will come running!

We are not huge steak eaters around here, so having a few bite-sized bits of steak in a crispy tortilla was perfect for our family. We also don’t do a ton of cheese in our meals, so I love that it is easy to control the amount of cheese in this dish. Just sprinkle your preferred amount!

How to Declutter When Overwhelmed

How To Declutter When Overwhelmed

I just motivated myself by rereading this decluttering post. There are so many great tips– if I do say so myself! I do think the #1 best tip to declutter is simply GET RID OF STUFF. Otherwise, you are spending time organizing clutter & will have to do it over and over again.

I’m still in the process of purging out home but 2018 is the year where I will conquer all the clutter in all rooms, closets, and drawers. I want to up my game when it comes to cleaning, and you can’t clean well if you are too busy tidying all the stuff! Cheers much easier cleaning because of clear surfaces and clear floors!

Happy New Year!

Welcome 2016! I am so excited for a new year.

I usually find myself giddy about the start of a brand new year  but this year I am especially excited to say goodbye to 2015 and have a brand spakin’ new 2016!  2015 was a hard year for me, as an extreme anxiety overtook my body & it took much of the year to figure out what it was and what to do about it.

This little blog of mine took a hit, as my writing voice and stamina was lost during much of the year last year.  It was survival.  I am so thankful to have found it again & it is slowly returning to something that feels familiar and “me.” As I continue to find my voice & my bravery, I will share with you more of my struggle with anxiety, not to spotlight struggle, but to hopefully give hope to others who find themselves surprised by the same battle.

Despite a hard year, you all were so great and supportive to continue to read New Nostalgia.  Looking  back over the posts of the last year, I see God’s goodness in helping me produce some content despite my struggle.  I hope you enjoyed this little roundup of last years bests posts, and if there is anything that is of use to you, know that was my Heavenly Father carrying me through and helping me create, despite hardship.  What a great, sweet & faithful God!  All praise and glory goes to Him.
