Hi, friends! Happy Tuesday! I hope your week is off to a fabulous start!
So, guys, I have a little confession for you: I’m bored with taking photos of my food. Phew. There, I said it.
If you’ve been following CNC from the beginning, you know I’ve been snapping photos of my meals and snacks for almost 5.5 years now. That’s a lot of food photos! Even though I don’t take photos of everything I eat, it’s still something I think about multiple times a day. And I guess I’m just not that into it anymore, which maybe you’ve noticed over the past several months.
Now don’t get me wrong, I love blogging and sharing my life “one bite at a time” on CNC, but, moving forward, I’m going to document less of my everyday meals and snacks. I’m not saying I won’t document a full day of eats from time-to-time, but I just won’t do it on the regular.
What does this mean for CNC? Honestly, not too much. You’ll still see some of my meals—more like snapshots and summaries of what I am eating—and I hope blogging less about my daily eats will make way for other fun content: workouts, events, recipes, new products, life adventures, pug photos (obviously), and other randomness. You can also follow me on Instagram (carrotsncake) to see what I’m eating. I post a lot of food (and pug) pics there!
With that said, here’s a snapshot of some of my eats from the past couple of days:
- Roasted chicken with carrots, celery, and onions, steamed broccoli, and rice
- Homemade cauliflower, leek & ginger soup, a banana, and Marylou’s white chocolate chip iced coffee with soymilk
- Green juice made with apple, spinach, carrots, cucumber, and ginger
- Baked acorn squash with vanilla cake batter coconut butter
- Avocado chicken salad
- Avocado + banana smoothie (recipe on Health next week)

Remember when exercise meant playing kickball with neighborhood friends and Capture the Flag during recess? As a kid, I never went in search of a new workout or felt like I needed to check it off my list for the day. I got a workout without even trying! Boy, when did exercise stop being fun?
If you can’t remember the last time you enjoyed a workout, try this one, which takes place at an outdoor playground. It’s a guaranteed fun time!
