The quote above is one of my all-time favorites because I truly believe that little, everyday changes can really add up to something big and wonderful. That said, one of my goals for 2015 is to just “roll with it” and find balance in my life, so here are some of the small things that I’m aiming to incorporate into my everyday:

  • Eat a vegetable or fruit with every meal
  • Read to Quinn at least once a day
  • Disconnect from social media in the evening
  • Make the bed every morning
  • Sort and toss junk mail immediately
  • Light a candle (it makes things feel so homey)
  • Read before bed as a way to unwind
  • Measure my nut butter (I usually go crazy with the stuff)
  • Eat snacks from a bowl or plate, not the bag or box
  • Don’t go to bed angry; talk it out
  • Start the day with a nutritious, protein-packed breakfast, like the one below!


This super satisfying pancake has made quite a few appearances at breakfast since the start of the new year. It has about 260 calories and 21 grams of protein, and I hope you love it as much as I do!

Super Satisfying Greek Yogurt Protein Pancake


  • 1/4 cup Stonyfield Greek yogurt (I used plain, but any flavor would work)
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/8 tsp vanilla extract (optional – I’ve made this pancake with and without it, and it’s delicious both ways)


Combine above ingredients in a mixing bowl.


Coat a pan with non-stick cooking spray and turn heat on stove to medium/medium-low. Pour batter into pan and wait 3-4 minutes before you flip it. (Cooking the pancake slowly is key, so it doesn’t break apart.) Flip pancake and cook for another 2 minutes or so.
