    I absolutely love the show Ruby. She has the best spirit and the best attitude and no matter if she falls even the slightest bit she always picks herself back up (with a smile). She is so honest about it all and is one of those shows that really makes you say “if she can loose all that weight, five pounds is nothing”.

    Just wanted to also say I love your blog! I am 19 and studying dietetics to become and RD so obviously I love all that has to do with healthy eating. It sounds funny to say I love seeing what you eat, but your so creative and its great to find new ways to eat what you love so thanks for all the creativity!

    I’ve seen a few episodes and I love Ruby. Many morbidly obese people close themselves off from the world, but she still goes out and has awesome friends surrounding her. She has a great attitude and I hope she can find her way to a healthy weight.

    Mmmm…that’s my type of “salad” with lots of fun toppings. I have to say I’ve never tried shrimp and sweet potato together before, glad to know it’s good!

    Man I wish I got the Style network! I used to love it when I had it in college. Ruby sounds like a great show (and she herself sounds like a fabulous inspiration).

    I’ve never watched Ruby, but I’ve heard that it’s really good. I love the ice cream…mmmm.

    I just found the So Delicious coconut ice cream tonight in Canada and I had it for the first time and I loved it! Have you tried the mint chip one? I’d recommend it!
    Ruby is awesome- I’ve seen it.

    i like that show too, I think she just has a beautiful attitude and is finally ready to embrace what it means to be healthy..her friends aren’t always on board but they try

    I watched several episodes of Ruby and really, really like her! I think she’s gorgeous and she has such an adorable accent. It was interesting to see her going through therapy on the show. It’s so odd that she couldn’t remember huge parts of her childhood! I love that viewers are able to see that the issues obese people have go so much deeper than food.

    I love Ruby! It is one of my favorite shows. She is so motivating. If she can change her life then I can too.

    i have been eyeing those ice cream bars at whole foods! I just can’t myself to pay $5 for them πŸ™ They look so yummy!

    i wasn’t aware they started a new season of ruby! I didn’t catch on last season but really want to this time around! Thanks for the heads up! She seems like such an amazing lady!

    I don’t really like fruity bars either. I love bars with a lot of crunch to them. I try really hard to like sweet fruity bars and it just doesn’t work! Macadamia nuts are really good though!!

    When you say you massage greens, do you LITERALLY massage them or just make sure they are coated?

    Thanks for explaining the hard candies and ginger chews. I’m a hard candy addict (Nips, preferably chocolate parfait), but I chew them…terrible for my aging teeth. I need to work on that.

    Hi Meghann!

    I have a question about racing. I’m considering entering an ‘aquabike’ competition in mid-September (I can’t run due to a lack of knee cartilage), and was wondering if that would give me enough time to train or if I should wait until next year?

    I bike daily and swim somewhat regularly but I didn’t know the typical ‘timeline’ for racers to start training for a race.

    That dinner looks great, you’re always so inventive and creative! I need to get me some of those ice cream bars ASAP, I tried the mini ice cream sandwiches and they were delicious:)

    I LOVE Ruby! I was super excited for the new season to start. It really takes me back to when I started & helps me remember the good, bad & ugly of the weight loss journey. Definitely keeps me on my toes & encouraged to keep living healthy!

    I have to say that I really just don’t care for Ruby. I have watched a few episodes and while I do think that she is adorable the show is just not for me.

    I saw Ruby on the Today show this morning. I love her, she’s so positive given all the struggles she’s been through. I think if someone is capable of loosing hundreds of lbs., it makes any other weight loss goal seem very manageable!
