    Hi, guys! With a massive baby bump on the front of my body, day-to-day activities are definitely getting more and more challenging. Getting out of the car, tying my sneakers, shaving my legs… they’re all a bit of an adventure! Haha! But, I’m still doing unassisted pull-ups at CrossFit, so things could definitely be worse! […]

Made with banana, creamy almond butter, almond milk, espresso, honey, vanilla, and cinnamon, this smoothie has a […]



    Hey, hey! How are things? Yesterday morning started with a delicious breakfast of toasted waffles with almond butter, marmalade, and banana slices on top. I am really digging this combo lately.

    Good morning! This morning’s breakfast was especially delicious, which was a nice surprise because it was previously a major snack fail. As you might remember, I am developing some recipes for the Almond Board of California. One of the recipes on my list is a healthy “energy” bar of sorts. Well, I attempted the new […]

    Good morning! After breakfast yesterday morning, I headed into the city to get my blood drawn. Just when I was starting to feel better with the UC stuff, I now have a low platelet thing going.
