Good morning, friends! I haven’t written a Monday In Meals post in quite awhile, so I figured it was about time for another. If you’re new to this blog post series, I document what I ate throughout the day on Monday. If you’re a long-time reader, you probably remember the early days of CNC when I used to document ALL of my meals and snacks, food journal-style, and sometimes I would blog 3 times per day. Isn’t that crazy!?…

Hi, friends! How are ya? There are a number of foods that I love, love, love and rave about on CNC quite often. Some of them aren’t the easiest to find because they’re local products or ones you need to buy online, so I decided to purchase four of my favorites and give them away to one lucky reader! Here’s your chance to win: A pound of Marylou’s Coffee in the flavor of your choice…

Hi, friends! Happy Tuesday! Breakfast Yesterday started bright and early with a breakfast blast from the past: a French Toast Breakfast Scramble! I haven’t made one of these babies in weeks now, but it was just as delicious as I remembered. I added a big ol’ scoop of Teddie peanut butter to it. Delish! I also drank a glass of Dandy Blend with almond milk with breakfast. We were out of decaf iced coffee, so I whipped…

Last night, I helped our CrossFit box move to a new location. Our little family has grown quite a bit over the past several months and we finally outgrew our space, so we needed a bigger home. We had about 20 members come out and help with the move last night. Team work definitely sped things up! Before we were knew it (seriously, it took like 15 minutes), the truck was all packed up and…

Happy Valentine’s Day!!! Remember my I Bet You Didn’t Know posts? If you missed them, here are the 5 I’ve written so far: I Bet You Didn’t Know I Bet You Didn’t Know II I Bet You Didn’t Know III I Bet You Didn’t Know IV I Bet You Didn’t Know V I love these kinds of posts because I get to share fun, random things with you guys, so without further ado, here’s the…

Good morning! Happy Hump Day! I can’t believe it’s already Wednesday. Just 3 days until Mal and I are in Hawaii! O.M.G. Breakfast Yesterday morning’s breakfast was Greek yogurt with blueberries and chicken sausage with a glass of green juice on the side. I also drank a glass of Dandy Blend with coconut milk mixed. Coconut milk is the bomb. Workout After breakfast, I spent a few hours working and then headed to LA Fitness…

Good morning! I started yesterday morning with a glass of bright green juice. In the mix: kale, spinach, apple, celery, cabbage, and carrot. Deeeelicious! Since we’re on the topic of juice, I thought I’d mention Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead. A bunch of you guys left comments about it yesterday and it was one of the reasons that I decided to give juicing a try. If you haven’t seen this film and you’re thinking about…

Hello, hello! Yesterday was filled with a bunch of delicious eats. Oh, yes, it was. Don’t you love when that happens? It makes my stomach happy! Breakfast Over the weekend, I stumbled upon a recipe for Plantain Pancakes with Maple Coconut Cream and Toasted Walnuts (doesn’t that just sound delightful?!), and, of course, I needed to make them as soon as possible. And, holy goodness, they were amazing! I’ll definitely make them again in the…

Would you rather be really fast or really strong? I’ll let you think about it while I recap my eats from yesterday. How’s that sound? Breakfast My day started with a French Toast Breakfast Scramble in a jar (FTBSIAJ) with extra Teddie peanut butter. Even though there’s peanut butter on the sides and bottom of the jar, I always add more. Not joking, I probably eat 4-5 tablespoons (2-3 big scoops) of nut butter every…

Good morning! Last night, when I was waiting for Mal to come to bed, Murphy and I had some serious cuddle time together. He got all “croissant-y” and curled up in a tight ball right next to me. As I laid there cuddling him, I realized just how much I love his pug smell, which we call “Frito face” in our house. It’s like “Frito feet” that a lot of dogs have, but (obviously) on…

Well, hello, new coffeemaker! Since we bought the exact same coffeemaker as we had before, we kept the “glass carafe” from the old coffeemaker and designated it the “decaf” pot, so now we can have both caffeinated and decaf iced coffee in the fridge at once. Mal and I are just a tad excited about this. I’m still lovin’ the Dandy Blend, but I’m all about switching it up with decaf Milk Way from Marylou’s!…

Good morning! Happy Thursday! Yesterday morning, I was in the mood for a two-ingredient pancake, but I wanted something a little different for breakfast, so I whipped up some Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter to spread on top. Mmm”¦ the Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter was so good. It tasted more like pumpkin and cinnamon than it did peanut butter, but it was nice and thick, so it was a satisfying addition to my breakfast. Speaking of…

Good morning! Happy Hump Day! The first thing I did when I woke up this morning was check who won the election. It was close last night when I went to bed. I’m glad to see we have four more years with President Obama! [image source] Breakfast Yesterday morning’s breakfast was a Sweet Breakfast Scramble, but instead of squash/pumpkin, I used chopped apple. To make it, I cut up half of an apple, microwaved it…

Happy Halloween, blog friends!!! Breakfast Breakfast yesterday morning was a two-ingredient pancake with a big scoop of Teddie peanut butter and a glass of coconut-flavored Dandy Blend with almond milk. I received a question yesterday about how I make my Dandy Blend and all I do is add water to it. Dandy Blend is a powder that you mix with hot or cold water, so I make a big batch in my French press and…

Hi, friends!  It’s a beautiful fall day here in Massachusetts! Best season ever. Breakfast I woke up craving peanut butter this morning, so I whipped up a Sweet Breakfast Scramble with canned pumpkin and added a massive scoop of Teddie peanut butter to it… and then went back for an equally huge second scoop. I also drank””not one””but two glasses of coconut-flavored Dandy Blend with breakfast. After making pumpkin spice Dandy Blend the other day,…
