“When the Student Is Ready….” (Mar)

I am surprised at how excited people get at the word “cleanse”.  At The Kitchen Remix, we have had dozens of clients ask us about detoxing the body.  When we have held smoothie “Pop-Up” bars around town, our biggest sellers are always the Detox or Metabolism Booster.  It seems we are all looking for a clean start. Brittany Wright, a […]

Christmas Cookies Remixed (Steph)

Okay, if you haven’t figured out by now that I have a sweet tooth, I don’t think you are following the blog very carefully.  Health aside, if I could pick food based on taste alone, I would live off chocolate, wine, cheese and bread. (But…, I digress).  Anyway, this time of year, I always want to spend a day baking […]


A School Lunch Remix (Steph)

Chocolate Be Gone! by Mar

I told Steph how, as always, my children picked a few pieces […]


Out-Tricking the Treats

Halloween is approaching and that means lots of candy around your house.  Here are a few things I do to help cut down on candy consumption: 1.

WE ARE the two blend-happy chicks!…as evidenced by the quantity of blending opportunities we’ve had over the past month!  From a few of our recent events, we now have specialty smoothie recipes to share.  First, we […]


Rume Bags!!

As many of you know, one of the things that brought Mary Ellen and me together in the first place was our mutual love for all things “Colorado.”  This list includes eating healthy, running, sunshine, Labrador Retrievers and a general over-excitement for nature and being outdoors. So on a trip home to Colorado, when a friend handed me a Rume […]
