    This post is sponsored by Blue Apron. I’m all about Sunday food prep as a way to help our family eat healthy. If nutritious food is prepped and ready to go, we don’t have an excuse to order take-out or eat cereal (or ice cream) for dinner. And now that we have a toddler, we […]

Of course, it’s really important when it comes to my workouts, but it’s also key for controlling my cravings and keeping me full, especially when it comes to my first meal of the day. Breakfast always sets the tone for my healthy habits, so […]

    Good morning! Since writing my post about CrossFit, running, and diet, I’ve received all sorts of questions about my diet. It seems like a lot of you guys want specifics, so I decided to document my eats from yesterday. For the most part, it was a “normal” day of eating for me— although, it’s just one […]
