MMF--Armor for your Cells






Kids are home for the Summer and I am enjoying having them around more. This time of year gives me the opportunity to look at their nutrition and do what I can to step up anti-inflammatory, whole foods in their diet. With two daughters with Hashimotos Disease, it is important to take care of their health needs through excellent nutrition as well as our favorite, super anti-oxidant supplement, MMF (Military Micronutrient Formulation).

My husband Joe is on board taking it and is a believer. He has more energy and vitality. He doesn't crave a nap every day. Frankly, he is able to get more done at work and home which is a big plus during these vacation months.

If you would like to give MMF a try or learn more about it, contact me via email: ssevans7@yahoo.com or Facebook message me. I would love to share with you a small thing that has made a big difference in our family's health.

Amazing stuff!

Have you ever read about the origins of Engage Global and MMF?

“After September 11, 2001, protecting the good health of our men and women in uniform–many of whom were operating in the world’s most hazardous environments–became very important to Marine Corps Systems Command and other decision makers at Quantico.

For this reason, the US Department of Defense asked a team of medical doctors and PhD research scientists to develop a powerful micronutrient supplement to fortify and repair vital body mechanisms that would be challenged by the rigors and hazards faced by soldiers, marines, airmen, and sailors.

Years of dedicated research, including clinical and human trials, culminated in the creation of what became Military Micro nutrient Formulation (MMF)––the first and only biologic body fortification supplement of its kind, now in an all-natural, plant-based capsule.”

Eggs Benedict on Good Things Utah


Another fun day in the Good Things Utah Kitchen and set. Michelle Money was the host with me making Eggs Benedict for Father's Day this Sunday.


Eggs Benedict

Personally, Eggs Benedict is on of my favorite breakfast dishes, especially for special occasions such as Father's Day. Not only is it sophisticated, but it is also simple and delicious.

6 eggs
1 cup Hollandaise Sauce (recipe below)
3 English Muffins, split or steamed asparagus spears to go Gluten Free
6 tsp. butter or ghee
6 slices nitrite free, deli ham
1 Tbls. fresh tarragon

1. Poach the eggs. In a skillet with 2 inches of simmering water, carefully slide in cracked eggs. Let cook on medium-low heat until whites are no longer clear and yolk is starting to cook, about 8 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, prepare Hollandaise Sauce.

3. Toast English muffins and spread with 1 teaspoon butter per half.

4.Top each half with 1 slice of ham followed by poached egg.

5. On each half, spoon 2 tablespoons of Hollandaise Sauce over egg and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon fresh tarragon.

Serves 6

6 Tbls. unsalted butter, melted
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
pinch of salt

Prom 2015--Red Carpet Glam

Red carpet glam was our goal as we went about picking out a prom dress, shoes, earrings, make-up, and hair style for Elle's first prom.

According to two generations of tradition, we opted for mermaid style, formal dress we found at Flair boutique in Pleasant Grove, Utah. It was the only one of its kind in the state, so Elle could be confident that some other girl would not be wearing her same dress.


 Mermaid style fits well with the Evans Girls' body type.

Next came the ear rings. We also found the chandelier, faux diamond ear rings at Flair.
Loose curls like seaweed was the final hair style that worked best with the dress and overall glam look.

Natural make-up with gold, shimmery eye shadow also added to the final glam look.

Overall, we were all very happy with the results. Her dad and younger sister actually cried. I laughed. She is a stunner. But more importantly, she is sweet and kind. Beautiful inside and out. What a treasure she is to our family. We could not have been more pleased that she felt confident and enjoyed her first high school prom.


 Elle glam team consisted of her two sisters and of course, mom.







Chandies in the bathroom. Chandies on the ears. Love me some chandies! 


Natural colored nails and sea foam green toes finished the style.

Time to pull out the camera phones!
