    This post is brought to you by the Hass Avocado Board. Good morning! Are there some avocado toast lovers out there? I mean, who doesn’t LOVE avocado toast, right? It’s one of my favorite meals and snacks because it’s so darn delicious and easy to make, but also because the ingredients are simple (just bread + mashed avocado) and the pairing […]

    Guys, this summer was a total shitshow whirlwind. Between moving, traveling, working/not sleeping, fun and adventures, I felt like I had zero time to do anything else, which meant a lot of my usual healthy habits fell by the wayside.

    This post is sponsored by Blue Diamond Almonds. Good morning, friends! Last week, I received a great question from a reader about my experience with diet and exercise, and how they helped me lose weight.

    Hello! How’s it going? Let’s start with some EATS from yesterday. Remember when CNC was mostly a food diary? I honestly like it better now, but it’s fun to go back to that style of blogging every once in awhile. Plus, I love seeing what other people eat—it gives me great ideas for my own […]
