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!…

Remember “The Extra Mile” smoothie from Kure that I raved about the other day? Well, I (appropriately) re-named it “The Best Smoothie Ever Made” and successfully recreated it at home. Yay! The original list of ingredients included coconut meat, but I didn’t have any on hand, and I actually wasn’t sure how it would work””bust open a coconut and shave some off? I dunno, but it sounded like a lot of work, so I swapped…

Good morning! Happy Hump Day! I visited my new nephew, Matthew, yesterday afternoon. He’s only a day older since the last time I saw him, but he’s already so different. The first day I saw him when he was only 24 hours old, he just slept and didn’t do much. Yesterday, though, he had his eyes open, he was squirming around, and he even sneezed a few times. He’s so cool. Four generations: My sister,…

Here’s the winning smoothie from the Silk blogger competition! Just in time for summer! I’m completely obsessed with this smoothie. The flavors are incredible together. Banana, pineapple, mint, and coconut combine to make a refreshingly delicious and tropical-tasting smoothie. A little bit of honey adds a touch of sweetness and the Silk Pure Coconut Vanilla gives it a rich, creamy texture. With only five ingredients, this smoothie is super easy to make, so I hope…

I survived my colonoscopy with flying colors! Hooray! Seriously, it was a piece of cake. The prep and (especially) not eating were definitely the hardest parts. The actual procedure was over and done with before I knew it. Piece of cake. My doctor talked to me briefly after the colonoscopy and, good news, he said he only saw a little bit of inflammation. The bad news is, however, the steroids I’ve been taking for the past few…

Good morning! Thank you so much for your Ireland suggestions! Holy moly, you guys are the best! So many great recommendations! Reading all of them made Mal and me even more excited for our trip. Thanks, again! Breakfast Yesterday morning’s breakfast was awesome! Really. It will probably sound a little weird, but trust me on this one. It’s goooooood! I made a gluten-free banana apple “crisp” out of whipped bananas, chopped Coconut Cinnamon Apples, cinnamon,…

Check out what I had for breakfast yesterday morning””and it’s not a French Toast Breakfast Scramble or a Two-Ingredient Pancake! I made a Greek yogurt parfait with blueberries and some Paleo “granola” that I whipped up the night before. I know there’s a lot of Paleo “granola” and Paleo “crunch” recipes out there, so I’m not the first to create something like this, but I simplified the recipe by using what I had in my…

Good morning! How about kicking off today with some pancakes!? As you probably know, I loovvve pancakes. All kinds. From traditional flapjacks to those made with eggnog or protein powder, there really isn’t a pancake I’d turn down. With that said, here’s a round-up of my very favorite pancake recipes. Enjoy! A Really Good Pancake Recipe I always used Bisquick in my pancake batter, so this recipe was one of the first I ever made…

Yesterday afternoon, I headed into Boston for my appointment with my new gastroenterologist at MGH. I drove to the T, parked my car, and then took the train into the city. I don’t trust the MTBA to get me anywhere without an issue, so I always give myself plenty of extra time when I take public transportation into Boston. Surprisingly, everything went smoothly, and I ended up at Charles/MGH about 30 minutes before my appointment,…

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…

Since I’m off to Baltimore this morning (and because I’ve been traveling so much lately), I decided to write a post about the foods I often eat during my travels. (Most of them are Paleo-friendly!) Some of them take a little advanced planning, but it’s worth it, and I hope they give you some ideas for your own snacks! Fresh fruit and veggies””all kinds! Chunked chicken breast””wrapped in tinfoil to keep it cold and then…

Greetings from the Bolt Bus! I’m blogging on my way down to New York City right now. Hooray for in-bus WiFi! Breakfast I started my morning with my usual two-ingredient pancake, but this time I added an extra egg for some staying power. I topped my pancake with blueberries and a scoop of sunflower butter. I later went back for a second and third scoop of sunflower butter””might as well finish off the jar! The…

Good morning! Happy Thursday! I’m off to New York City again this morning, which means I finally earned my free ride on the Bolt Bus! After a certain number of ticket purchases, you get one free! Woohoo! I’ll be in the Big Apple for less than 24 hours, so I decided to pack light and just take a backpack and a bag full of food (obviously). Any time I go somewhere, I usually have so…

If you’re looking for a healthy pad thai recipe, I have just the one for you! It’s actually a paleo pad thai recipe and could even probably be counted as a keto pad thai recipe. No matter how you categorize it, it’s a winner! This dish is made with coconut aminos, spaghetti squash, and the most amazing pad thai sauce called “sunshine sauce.” Even the sauce alone is delicious. I’ve made it a number of…
