If you follow me on Instagram Stories, you’ve probably seen that I’ve been on quite the cottage cheese kick lately. I love eating it along side a plate of veggie crudités for dipping. It’s such a quick and easy – not to mention nutritious and delicious – snack to quickly throw together. Whatever your mood – morning, noon or night – cottage cheese is an awesome (and protein-packed!) addition to your day, which is why…

Hi, friends! Hooray! It’s finally starting to feel like summer is on the way! It’s about time since we had such a longgggg, cold winter, and I am desperately in need of sunshine! 🙂 Last weekend, I was having major flashbacks to Mal and my amazing WODs and Paleo Retreat that we took a few years ago. We have SUCH great memories from that trip! After sweating it out most of the day, we spent a…

I can’t stop making these protein balls! They’re so darn delicious and SO EASY to make. They seriously come together in, like, 5 minutes! These protein balls were inspired by my love of chocolate and hitting my macros goals for the day. I’m definitely not a stickler for “the numbers,” but these babies clock in as a well-balanced, macro-friendly treat and, bonus, they’re so easy to make – just whip up a batch when the…

No matter how many times I think I’ve come up with all the protein ball recipes possible, inspiration hits! I just love protein balls because they are so easy to toss together with whatever extra ingredients you have on hand. I especially love that I don’t have to be super precise in measuring because, hey, sometimes eyeballing it makes cooking so much more fun! As you guys might remember, I’m a fan of seed cycling and…

Guys, this Smooth as Honey White Bean Spread is absolutely delicious – the texture is so incredible and is just bursting with flavor. Mixing white beans, almond butter, honey, and cinnamon together might sound a little strange to you, but I promise it’s a winning combination! It reminds me of my favorite flavored nut butter, but with additional nutrients from the beans. The honey sweetens up the spread, so you don’t taste the beans at…

Hi, guys! Happy Tuesday to you! So, I have ANOTHER tahini recipe for you. Tahini Tuesday, anyone? 🙂 Clearly, I’m allllll about the tahini lately. But, first, a quick recap of my morning! I’ve been digging this breakfast lately, especially on the days that I work out in the morning. I need a little something in my stomach, but I don’t want to be too full either. Listen to this combo: Half of a mashed…

Hi, friends! I hope you are having a nice Saturday! Here are some highlights from our morning, including a ridiculously delicious recipe for Bacon-Wrapped Sweet Potatoes that you NEED to try ASAP!

I truly look forward to them all week. Remember when I…

It’s January 3rd, and I’m finally publishing this blog post, but, hey, it’s better late than never, right? Above: Photos from New Year’s Eve I actually wasn’t even sure if I wanted to write a “goals” blog post. I didn’t write one last year – although, I’ve written many over the years – so I went back and forth whether I really wanted to do the whole New Year’s resolution thing. But after a New…

When I first started eating well, it felt like the only advice I got was what to remove. While taking the crap out of my diet was good advice in many ways, sometimes I found it difficult and a little depressing to give up the foods I loved. Top of the list: hash browns. Golden, crispy, greasy hash browns. And you guys know how much I love hash browns! So, how does one maintain a healthy,…

Just because I’m not eating eggs right now, doesn’t mean you can’t! FYI: I’m still experimenting with the eggs and acne stuff. Before I make any conclusions, I want to get through another cycle or two to see what happens with my skin. I’ll be sure to keep you guys in the loop! Besides Kraft Mac & Cheese and Ramen Noodles, one of the first things I ever learned to cook was Egg-in-a-Nest. Rewind to 12-years…

Good morning!! So, this week… slowest week ever?! Jeez Louise, it’s dragging, and I’ve been a day ahead all week long. Tuesday felt like Wednesday. Wednesday felt like Thursday. Meh. I hate when that happens. But, we’re getting close to the weekend, right? And, hey, Cinco de Mayo is tomorrow, so that’s something to look forward to.
