Hi, guys! A very happy Monday to you! How was your weekend? Ours was low-key and included minimal plans, which, honestly, was the best type of weekend. The fall has been crazzzzy for our family – and with me off to Israel later this week, a quiet weekend was exactly what we needed. Here’s a recap! Friday I finally enjoyed my first Pumpkin Spice Latte of the season. I actually shared my order on Instagram…

Guys, I’m so glad that fall is in full swing. I love everything about the season, especially the cool, crisp weather and beautiful foliage. And, of course, I love all of the comfort food and deliciousness that goes along with it. Now that we’re nearing the colder months of the year, it’s truly the perfect time to break out the crock-pot and make a big ol’ batch of chili. Am I right? And even better than traditional…

Hi, friends! I have an incredible, protein-packed, and easy recipe that you guys are going to love. It’s perfect as a make-ahead breakfast during the week or a lazy weekend brunch. A huge thank you to Muuna for partnering with me on this blog post! Guys, I might just eat this Pumpkin Spice Protein Bake every morning for the rest of my life. For real. It’s so, so, soooo good. When I first tasted this…

Hey, hey! Now that’s it’s the second week of October, I think we’re even more obsessed with all things pumpkin. I mean, you walk into Trader Joe’s and, holy cow, pumpkin overload. I actually really love pumpkin, so I don’t mind seeing it everywhere. It’s just all the more reason to eat it, right? I also really love meals and snacks that are both tasty and filling, so creating a round-up of high-protein pumpkin recipes was…

Hey, hey! Happy Friday! First things first, if you missed my post about Legacybox yesterday, definitely check it out, especially if you’re stumped with what to buy someone on your shopping list this year. It’s an awesome gift for people who seem like they already have everything! Ok, I feel like I’m all over the place today, so here are some “fast facts,” which include a bunch of random thoughts, tidbits, and happenings from life lately. Enjoy!…

Good morning! Happy Friday! Apparently, I’m into no-bake recipes lately because here is another one! And since a lot of us are into pumpkin right now, I figured this recipe would likely be a winner this time of year. These bars remind me a lot of cheesecake, texture-wise, but without the “cheese” flavor. Instead, the flavor is a combo of pure pumpkin mixed with sweet vanilla. Guys, they’re so good.

GOOD MORNING! A bunch of you guys commented on the candy corn in my grocery haul this week. Is it too early for candy corn? I honestly wasn’t sure, so after I put this bag of candy corn in my shopping cart, I put it back on the shelf. I love candy corn, but I didn’t want to ruin my fall experience by eating it too early in the season, ya know? But, then, I…

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! Happy Friday and happy National Pumpkin Day! In honor of the day, here are some of my all-time favorite pumpkin recipes! Chocolate Pumpkin Loaf Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Scones Pumpkin-Ginger Muffins Pumpkin Oatmeal Muffins Pumpkin Blondies Pumpkin Date Nut Bars Pumpkin Pie Smoothie Breakfast And, of course, it being National Pumpkin Day and all, I started my morning with Pumpkin OMG Pancakes! I whipped up the batter yesterday afternoon. And then stored it in…

Hello, hello! I hope you’re having a wonderful Wednesday!  Breakfast I started my day with a very pumpkin-y breakfast: Sweet Breakfast Scramble in a jar (SBSIAJ) with canned pumpkin, TJ’s Pumpkin Butter, and an extra scoop of Teddie Peanut Butter in the mix. The combo of pumpkin butter + peanut butter was de-lic-ious! I also drank a glass of iced pumpkin spice Dandy Blend with almond milk. After breakfast, I got my plank on! Here’s the first…

At CrossFit a couple of weeks ago, one of the classes at my box ended with a plank challenge. Basically, the person who held their plank the longest won and earned bragging rights. I didn’t attend this particular class, but I heard about it later on. The winner held his plank for 5 minutes and 30 seconds! Impressive, right?! I don’t do planks all that often (maybe once a month at CrossFit during a Tabata…

Good morning! Happy Monday! How was your weekend? I hope it was fun! I’m definitely still recovering from boozing face + Fight Gone Bad + 10K race. Holy moly. Breakfast I started my morning with something new and different: Pumpkin Spice Breakfast Couscous. I had some leftover couscous from last night’s dinner, so I turned it into breakfast. The end result was mushy bowl of pumpkin goodness. The texture was sort of like oat bran, but a…

I’m feeling so much better this morning. So good, in fact, I did a little baking! I had some canned pumpkin in the refrigerator that needed to be used up sooner than later, so I whipped up a batch of Pumpkin-Walnut Muffins, which are Paleo-friendly and gluten-free”¦ oh, and super delicious. Ingredients: 1 cup almond flour/meal 1 cup canned pumpkin 2 eggs 1/4 cup almond butter 1/4 cup honey 1 tsp baking powder 1 tsp…

But, first, let’s recap the food (because the thought of colitis and eating is so appetizing). Dinner Last night’s dinner was chicken stir fry with red and yellow bell pepper, broccoli, onions, mushrooms, edamame, and brown rice. My diet has been lacking veggies lately, so this was the perfect meal to get some in. After dinner, I satisfied my sweet tooth with a bite (ok, like, 4 bites) of cookie dough. Breakfast This morning’s breakfast…

Hi, friends! 😎 After breakfast this morning, I headed to Starbucks to get some freelance work done. I don’t usually work in coffee shops (mostly because I’m cheap and don’t want to spend money), but I switched it up today because I really needed to get away from my usual distractions (i.e. Murphy, Twitter, gchat) and get sh*t done. I spent a few hours at Starbucks and accomplished quite a lot. Hooray! While working away,…
