Hi, guys! If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably seen this granola make a number of appearances in recent weeks. I am totally obsessed with it. I lovvvvve granola. So. Frickin’. Much. It’s one of those foods that I probably shouldn’t keep in the house because I will eat the entire box, but it’s just so darn delicious. I feel the same way about cereal. So much love. But cereal isn’t typically loaded with calories (and…

Hey, hey! Happy Hump Day, friends! This week started off sort of blah for me. After the weekend, I developed some sort of (painful) stomach bug, so, by Monday afternoon, I felt awful. Thankfully, Quinn was into cuddling with me on the couch because there was no way I could have chased him around the house. I was literally counting down the minutes until Mal got home from school. I woke up feeling quite a bit better on Tuesday morning, but still not…

After my recent trip to Canyon Ranch, I was inspired to make my own version of their incredible Pumpkin Crunch. I kept the pumpkin seeds as the base since they are highly nutritious and a great source of fiber, iron, magnesium, and phosphorus, but I mixed in some rolled oats for even more nutrients and satiety. And, well, I just love granola-y granola, ya know? I also changed things up with golden raisins, in addition to dried cranberries, and…

Hello, hello! Did you have a nice weekend? Mine was pretty good, so let’s have some fun with numbers as a way to recap! 1: Video games that Quinn learned how to play. 4: Bowls of Greek yogurt + granola eaten. 1: “Dog beers” consumed. 9: Total hours sleep between Friday and Sunday. Sick baby + a brain that never shuts off = sleepless nights. 21: Minutes it took me to complete the workout below. 105: Weight…

Good morning! Here are some eats from yesterday”¦ and then I have some fun “food crimes” to talk about! Breakfast: Oatmeal + a fried egg + iced coffee with eggnog. Lunch: Chunked chicken breast with roasted potatoes, steamed spinach, and buffalo sauce. Snack: Marylou’s almond cookie coffee + Greek yogurt and granola. Dinner: Cheeseburger Casserole (it was wicked good) + wine. So, Quinn and I had a rough day yesterday. He’s teething and has a nasty cold, so…

Happy Friday! Only 13 days until Christmas! Gah! I should probably start my holiday shopping, huh? Anyone else not purchased a single present yet? I need to get my act together ASAP. Here’s another edition of What I’m Loving Lately! Lip Flip with Jimmy Fallon and Ricky Gervais – Two of my favorite celebrities… this was SO FUNNY!! Quinn and Murphy’s relationship – These two are really becoming good buddies, and I love watching them interact with…

Guys, I have eaten SO MUCH granola lately… well, technically, Renola. I seriously can’t stop eating the stuff!! It’s so frickin’ good and so easy to eat while standing in the kitchen in the middle of the night while holding an infant. Anyway, I just wanted to share some of the recipes I’ve made using it because they are quite tasty, and I thought you guys might like them too! Grain-Free Almond Butter Granola Balls These Grain-Free…

Hi, guys! How is Monday treating you so far? My day started with a delicious breakfast of Greek yogurt, sliced banana, homemade peanut butter granola, and a glass of freshly pressed green juice on the side. So, let’s talk about this granola… whoa. I made it yesterday afternoon, and I haven’t been able to keep my hand out of the jar since. It’s incredibly addictive! You really must make this granola. It’s that amazing. Just…

Hello, hello! I hope your week is off to a fabulous start, my friends! Breakfast This morning’s breakfast was two Van’s waffles with sunflower butter and sliced banana on top. Most mornings, I want to make a two-ingredient pancake, but then I always opt for the quicker and easier toaster oven option. This breakfast requires practically no effort, but maybe I’ll switch it up tomorrow anyway. And, as always, I drank a glass of decaf…

I am loving the idea of making a yogurt parfait in a jar. It’s so convenient! And fun! I went into NuVal for a few hours this morning, so I packed one to take with me for lunch. Woohoo! Yogurt parfait to go! This morning, while making his breakfast, Mal noticed that our raspberries were going bad, so he instructed me to “finish ’em off.” I hate seeing food go to waste, so these on-their-last-day…

I pretty much ate and drank my face off this weekend at BlogHer Food. I literally ate all day long for four straight days. Of course, I don’t regret a single bite (it’s all part of the experience), but, even still, I’m ready to get back on track with my healthy eating habits. Here’s how I get back on track: Don’t dwell on the past Instead of worry about and dwelling on the eating “mistakes”…

Good morning! Happy Monday! Steel cut oats and I have a love-hate relationship. After eating and loving the steel cut oats at La Pain Quotidien, I went out and bought some to make at home. It’s been about a month since I bought the canister of steel cut oats, but I still haven’t made them. The main reason: they’re a lot of work to cook! The recommended preparation for steel cut oats is boiling water…

It was a two-cup-of-coffee with Bailey’s morning for a good reason: I was plowing through my To Do list. The caffeine kept me buzzing right along. I also ended up skipping Pilates in order to capitalize on my productivity, but it was worth it since I got so much accomplished. Lunch Around noon, I took a break from working to make my favorite new salad for lunch. Three of the ingredients come from cans, but…
