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:

CNC eats

  1. Roasted chicken with carrots, celery, and onions, steamed broccoli, and rice
  2. Homemade cauliflower, leek & ginger soup, a banana, and Marylou’s white chocolate chip iced coffee with soymilk
  3. Green juice made with apple, spinach, carrots, cucumber, and ginger
  4. Baked acorn squash with vanilla cake batter coconut butter
  5. Avocado chicken salad
  6. 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!
