Just popping in real quick to share a delicious and nutritious snack freebie with you: 5 Ingredients (or Less) High-Protein Snacks! Oh baby, yes! Trust me, you want this ebook in you life. There’s nothing worse than “sad snacks” that leave you hungry just a short while later. Am I right? Especially when those snacks take you on a blood sugar rollercoaster again and again. It’s the worst feeling, totally frusterating, and definitely won’t help…

Hey guys! Welcome to the next edition of CNC Instagram Live – and I have quite the roundup today! Most of the questions are short and sweet, so I have a total of 6 to answer for you with a super common question at the end that I typically ignore because it’s kind of… well, you’ll see… but I answered it below. Ok, here we go…     Back-to-school breakfast ideas? I’m always happy to…

If you follow me on Instagram stories or read through my daily eats posts, you know that I’m definitely a snacker! Whether it’s just a small bite pre-workout or a mid-afternoon snack while prepping dinner, I love a good snack. I generally like eating medium-to-large size meals with snacks in-between. This keeps me from getting hangry in between meals and then going overboard on my portions because I’m starving. This is what works for me, but everyone’s different….

Hi, guys! Happy (almost) Friday to you! I hope your first week of 2019 is off to a wonderful start! I decided to hit publish on this blog post a little early because, well, I had it ready to go and figured you might want to read it sooner than later. 🙂 So, guys, it’s time for another edition of The Friday 5 (on Thursday afternoon) where I cut to the chase and share my top…

Hi, guys! I hope you had a lovely weekend! 🙂 Ours was really nice – lots of family time and plenty of FUN! We were busy, but not crazy-busy, which was the perfect balance. I hate it when we have TOO many plans, but I also don’t like wasting away the weekend doing nothing. I mean, you guys know me… I can’t sit still for too long, so some sort of adventure or activity is…

Once again, I’ve partnered with Wonderful Halos to bring you this blog post. Right now, the brand is hosting a “Good Choice Challenge” to encourage consumers to make good snacking choices by choosing Wonderful Halos over other traditional unhealthy snacks in order to lead a healthier lifestyle. Now that it’s the New Year and cleaning up our diets is on all of our minds, here are a bunch of snacks that you can quite literally take on-the-go….

It’s January 3rd, and I’m finally publishing this blog post, but, hey, it’s better late than never, right? Above: Photos from New Year’s Eve I actually wasn’t even sure if I wanted to write a “goals” blog post. I didn’t write one last year – although, I’ve written many over the years – so I went back and forth whether I really wanted to do the whole New Year’s resolution thing. But after a New…

A big thank you to Muuna for partnering with me again on this blog post! I love developing new easy recipes, and I hope you guys love these two as much as I do for on-the-go snacking! Even though I have a lot on my plate nowadays, I still try to make my workouts a priority, which means I’m often on-the-go when it comes to sticking to my usual routine. Most mornings, I leave the house…

I’m ALL about the high-protein snacks lately. I mean, I hate it when I eat a snack and then like 20 minutes later, I’m hungry again (#snackfail), so I love when I find new ones that are both tasty and satisfying. And I especially love high-protein snacks that aren’t your usual protein powder/Greek yogurt/nuts/hard-boiled eggs. Not that there’s anything wrong with these kinds of snacks. They’re some of my favorites, but I like to mix it…

Hey, hey! If you follow @carrotsncake on social media (snapchat + Instagram), you know that our little family spent a few days on Cape Cod reently. We had an awesome time, and I snapped a zillion photos, so I have quite a few recaps coming your way, including a review of the wonderful and amazing Chatham Bars Inn (CBI), who kindly offered us complimentary accommodations during our stay. That said, let’s start at the beginning with…

This post is sponsored by Blue Diamond Almonds. Since I’ve traveled so much lately, I wanted to share some of the foods I like to bring with me on long flights. I don’t know about you, but there’s something about long days of travel that make me want to eat and eat and eat some more. For me, it has a lot to do with boredom snacking (i.e. sitting on a plane for hours) and being surrounded by…

Hello, hello! I had the opportunity to go on a “shoppe-ing” spree at Vitamin Shoppe earlier this week and it was quite a lot of fun. I went to the Hingham location in the Shipyard where Will, a Vitamin Shoppe Health Enthusiast, helped me find all of the items on my list and then gave me some great ideas for new products to try. I told Will that I was a runner, so he kept…
