Anyone else on a soup kick lately? There’s just something about this time of year that makes me crave a warm bowl of soup. And, surprisingly, it’s not the weather! I mean, it’s nearly 60 degrees today! That’s basically a heatwave for this time of year and somehow I’m still in the mood for soup. But I’m not in the mood for any old soup. I like ones that are thick and hearty and filled with all sorts of…

Heyyyyyyy! Happy weekend, friends! I slept for almost 12 hours last night, which is both insane and awesome, so I woke up bright and early this morning and ready to start the day. Carpe diem! Breakfast I was really hungry when I woke up, so I immediately headed to the kitchen to make breakfast, but, unfortunately, we didn’t really have any food in the house. (I’m pretty sure Mal ate a lot of take-out when…

Good morning!! I’ve really enjoyed writing these weekly recaps of what I have been eating lately. They’re a lot more exciting for me, and, hopefully, you too! With that said, here’s the next edition of My Eats Lately! Fruit, Squash, and Nut Butter Breakfast Bowl I’ve been combining pumpkin, butternut squash, or sweet potatoes with sliced banana, fresh berries, and a big scoop of nut butter. It’s the best breakfast””nutritious and satisfying. I love eating…

Good morning and happy Thursday! My previous eats post was a big hit with you guys, so here’s another one with some of my (more interesting) meals lately! Coconut butternut squash with cinnamon and chickpeas Sounds a little random, right? Well, trust me, this is one delicious and satisfying meal. (I’ve been eating it a lot for breakfast lately. Sometimes I mix in canned pumpkin.) Here’s how I make it: Melt coconut oil in a…

Even though I stopped taking photos of everything I eat, I still find myself snapping pics of my food. I guess it’s more ingrained in me than I thought. Apparently, 5+ years of documenting my eats will do that! Anyway, I thought I’d take you through some of the meals and snacks I’ve been eating lately. Fresh raspberries with almond butter and chocolate & white chocolate chips – a very dessert-y way to eat fruit!…

Good morning! I’m off to the airport bright and early this morning to catch a flight to Portland, Oregon for Fitbloggin’. I am attending the conference on behalf of Reebok and Fitfluential, and I am super excited about it! Fitbloggin’ is my favorite fitness/blogger conference, and I always have so much fun at it! If you’re wondering what Fitbloggin’ is all about, feel free to check out my previous posts. I attended both Fitbloggin’ 11…

Hi, guys! So, I’m dragging a little bit this afternoon, but for a good reason. I ended up staying up late and reading Inside of a Dog: What Dogs See, Smell, and Know well into the evening last night. I plowed through the first 4 or 5 chapters during one of our flights home from Oahu, but I haven’t picked it up since then. No reason really”” I just haven’t wanted to read before bed”” but…

Good morning! Happy Friday! I had a tough time getting out of bed this morning. I usually set my alarm for 5:45 AM, but I forgot to set it last night. Mal woke up with his alarm, no problem, this morning, but he let me sleep in. What a nice guy! A little after 6:00 AM, Murphy came back to bed. (He eats his breakfast and then gets back in bed until mid-morning when I…

I cooked a big ol’ butternut squash on Sunday afternoon, so I’ve been sneaking it into meals all week long to use it up. I still have quite a bit left, so I decided to do some baking with it. The end result was quite a tasty treat! Holy goodness, these Butternut White Chocolate Chip Bars are delicious. They’re incredibly soft, moist, and sweet. They actually sort of melt in your mouth with each bite….

Yesterday started bright and early in the Haupert household, and some of us were a tad more enthusiastic about it than others. Look at that pathetic pug lip! Oh my goodness… haha! Breakfast Breakfast was “Oatmeal” Minus the Oats with a scoop of sunflower butter and a glass of iced Dandy Blend with almond milk. Mal and I ate breakfast together and, while we ate, we made a checklist of everything we need to do before…

Hello, hello! Happy Hump Day! Let’s quickly recap yesterday’s eats because I have a reader question to answer for ya! Lunch Yesterday’s lunch was reheated Italian “hot plate” from the previous night’s dinner. The leftovers were even better than the original because the veggies had more time to soak up all of the delicious flavors. It was also twice as spicy. Holy crap, I was sweating by the end! Haha! After lunch, I still wanted…
