Oh, boy, do I have a special treat for you! Healthy peanut butter fudge? Yep, you read that correctly! I’d even consider it a keto peanut butter fudge since it’s low in carbs, but high in protein and fat. But, of course, you don’t need to follow a specific diet in order to enjoy this super simple 4-ingredient protein fudge. I mean, you might already have all of the ingredients in your house. If so,…

Last week, I grabbed lunch at Whole Foods. We were on the verge of “hangry,” so a couple of treats ended up in our shopping basket, including a box of Better Bites, a “top 8 allergen-free” treat from a bakery located in Austin, Texas. This post is not sponsored in anyway; Kerrie had just heard they were good, so, of course, we needed to see what they were all about. I mean, taste-testing new healthy products is all…

Hi, guys! Happy Friday! The other day, I was out with one of my girlfriends and she gave me a compliment on my hair. She said it looked healthy and shiny and then she ask me what my secret was. I immediately replied, “magic hairspray!” I explained it actually wasn’t hairspray at all, but a “silkening mist” that I’ve used for years. My friend Marie actually introduced me to it back in 2011, and I’ve used…

Good morning! Our sweet boy turns 21 months old today! I documented one of our days last week as a way to remember this stage in Q-Man’s life and help us remember the tiny details that we might otherwise forget. That said, here’s a glimpse into life at 21 months! 5:39 AM: I hear Quinn on the baby monitor. Oy. It’s early. I stumble into his room, softly rub his back, and tell him it’s too early to get up….

Our little dude turned 17 months old yesterday, so I wanted to write a “day in the life” post as a way to remember the day. When Quinn was first born, I used to blog about our daily adventures once a month, and it was such a great way to remember those times. I love going back and remembering what life was like at 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, etc. And, of course, I…

Hi, friends! You know that game “Two Truths and a Lie?” Well, if not, it’s an icebreaker game. You think of three statements about yourself: two are true statements and one is false. Then, the other people guess which one is a lie. Simple as that! I thought this game would make a fun post, so here are 10 truths and a lie””many of which are based on things that happened yesterday, but some are totally…

Hi, friends! Here’s a what-I-ate/day-in-the-life recap for all of you! You guys said you enjoyed reading these types of posts on CNC, so I’m keeping them alive! Breakfast Yesterday’s breakfast was two slices of toast with Teddie Peanut Butter and banana slices on top. On the side, I had a container of Greek-style almond milk yogurt, which, like the coconut milk one, was no bueno. The texture just isn’t my jam. Once again, I didn’t…

Hello, hello! I’ve been slacking big time on posting about my eats and workouts lately, so I decided to include them all in this post. Here’s a snapshot of my meals, snacks, and CrossFit WODs lately! BREAKFASTS Egg sandwich on a toasted (semi-burnt – toaster oven malfunction) English muffin with a glass of freshly pressed juice (orange, carrot, romaine, cucumber) Toasted English muffin with Teddie peanut butter and a glass of orange juice Plain Greek…

Good morning, friends! Happy Monday! Breakfast I started my day with two Van waffles with Teddie peanut butter and sliced banana on top. Dee-lish! Peanut butter and banana rocks my world. While I ate my breakfast, Murphy watched Mal make his lunch (Mal’s lunch not Murphy’s lunch. Murphy doesn’t go to school. Although, I think he might really like it), which was a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Apparently, the thought of peanut butter made…

Good morning! Happy Hump Day! I hope your day is off to a great start! Murphy literally RAN back to bed after he ate his breakfast this morning. Apparently, he’s not a fan of Wednesdays. Breakfast This morning’s breakfast was an oldie, but goodie: Van’s waffles with Teddie peanut butter and banana slices. It hit the spot! After I finished making my breakfast, I shared the peanut buttery knife with Murphy. I hope it made…

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…

Whatcha waiting for, Murphy? Ooooh, peanut butter. A lick from Dad’s knife was worth the wait. Definitely. Breakfast I woke up bright and early this morning to make OMG Pancakes for Mal and me for breakfast. (I love this recipe so much.) I topped mine with maple syrup and a scoop of Teddie peanut butter. I also drank a glass of Dandy Blend with coconut milk. Fab breakfast. Workout After breakfast, I finished up a…

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…

Good morning! Happy Friday! I had a tough time getting out of bed this morning. I usually set my alarm for 5:45 AM, but I forgot to set it last night. Mal woke up with his alarm, no problem, this morning, but he let me sleep in. What a nice guy! A little after 6:00 AM, Murphy came back to bed. (He eats his breakfast and then gets back in bed until mid-morning when I…

Today has been a fabulous day for a lot of reasons, but one of them is not my laptop. More on that a minute. Let’s first recap the good parts of my day so far! Breakfast This morning, I brought back my favorite French Toast Breakfast Scramble and added it to an almost-empty Teddie peanut butter jar. It was so, so good. I’m glad that I tried some new breakfasts this week, but I’m a…
