What I’ve Been Eating Lately

March 27, 2017 | No Comments

Happy Monday! Last week was rough. I had just gotten over a cold, and was trying to find food that would make me feel energized. I chose to run almost every morning last week because I knew that having the goal of going to the gym before work would keep me motivated to work hard and […]

My Favorite Workout Motivation

March 20, 2017 | No Comments

It’s time to go to the gym. I’ve spent the past couple of weeks mostly inside, making the excuse that I was “too tired” to run. Sure, I went to the gym three times each week, but I wasn’t running all that much. I was walking, going on the arc trainer, eating alright.. but I […]

What I’ve Been Eating Lately…

March 15, 2017 | No Comments

The past couple of weeks have been difficult in terms of eating healthy and working out. The recent cold weather and Daylight Savings Time hit hard, so I’ve been playing catch-up whenever I’ve had a less than ideal couple of days. You see, over the past couple of weeks, we’ve made some delicious stuff. Granted, […]

End of the Season Warm Winter Salad

March 10, 2017 | No Comments

I hate endings. Whether it’s a movie or an experience, endings mean that something is over and it’s time to move on. Moving on to warmer weather sounds good to me, but moving on from wintry flavors and hiding out under the blankets? Hold on a minute! Let’s eat our way to spring in season. With […]

Green Smoothies & Getting Through the Flu

March 2, 2017 | No Comments

Every year in the middle of winter (with a blustery high of 78 degrees yesterday), I get this obsession to have a smoothie daily for weeks at a time. It’s not that I like eating goop, but it’s a solid way to get in my vitamins and get some calories to go. I first found the […]

February 28, 2017 | No Comments

Happy Tuesday! It’s the day before Lent officially begins, a day of indulgence before the 40 days of abstaining from something. Most years, I’ve chosen to abstain from chocolate or Diet Coke, and last year, I tried to abstain from meat. Well, it’s too late for that now, isn’t it? 😉 But that isn’t to say […]

Hi there! It’s been a while. Where have you been? I’ve been here. Yep, that’s Charlotte, North Carolina. But let’s rewind to earlier last week to the good stuff: the food. Last week was Valentine’s Day. Dave and I don’t really prescribe to the idea of doing anything crazy for Valentine’s Day, but it’s always […]

Apple Cinnamon Muffins

February 14, 2017 | No Comments

The other night, I was looking for something to make with two sad apples I had hanging out at my house. First thought: apple fritters. Second thought: that’s a lot of oil… And so, these muffins were born. I bet you could still make a glaze to dip the tops in. And honestly, I could eat […]

The Fudgiest Vegan Brownies

February 9, 2017 | No Comments

Back in 2011, I stayed over the summer with my aunt and uncle in Raleigh and spent a lot of time baking and found these brownies. For years, this was my go-to dessert, but now that I don’t eat dairy products, things have been a little different. But the brownies? Still incredible. They’d be perfect for Valentine’s Day… […]
