Hi, guys! Happy Hump Day! We’re getting into the swing of things over here now that school has been in session for a few weeks. Quinn is adjusting well and really seems to love learning and making new friends. His favorite subjects are science and recess, of course! 😉 We actually signed him up for a “Mad Science” program that meets once a week, and he absolutely loves it. In fact, he asks us pretty…

If you have an air fryer and live near a Trader Joe’s I have 4 words for you: Air Fryer Cauliflower Gnocchi. Did Santa bring you an air fryer for Christmas? Do you live near a Trader Joe’s store? If you answered yes to both of these questions, I have 4 words for you: Air Fryer Cauliflower Gnocchi. Oh, yes, I have quite the love affair with it and eat it nearly everyday. No seriously,…

Hi, guys! I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend. I’m actually running the Falmouth Road Race this morning, so, hopefully, I have all good stories to share later on. Even though I did a fair amount of running this summer, I’m feeling particularly under-trained for it. Whomp whomp. If you missed the 24 hour replay of this Instagram Live, here it is for your viewing pleasure. It has quite the nice mix of questions and…

Hi, guys! I’m a little behind on “live” blogging, but I wanted to share this post since I get questions ALL the time about how I count macros on the weekends. And, truthfully, I typically take breaks from tracking on Fridays and Saturdays (sometimes Sundays too), but I still “game plan” my food choices – just so I don’t go totally off the rails. Not that there’s anything wrong with letting loose every once in…

Hi, guys! Happy Friday! I have the next edition of What I’m Loving Lately for you! It’s quite the mix of goodies, so let’s get right to it! Kohv Sunglasses – I’m lovvvvving the sunglasses from Kohv lately. The brand sent Mal and me a few pairs to try, and you’ve probably seen me wearing them on the blog and social media quite a bit lately. Kohv was started by two brothers from the Lakes Region of…

Hi, guys! How was your Columbus Day weekend? We had a nice time in Newport with Papi and his girlfriend. It’s annual trip that we do again and again, year after year, and it’s definitely one that we look forward to. I’ll have a full recap coming later this week! If you’ve read CNC for any amount of time, you know that I have a special place in my heart for Trader Joe’s. We shop…

Hi, guys! Happy Friday once again! I just wanted to pop in with a little recap of our morning. Now that we’re not traveling a ton, I’m hoping to get back to a regular schedule with the day in the life posts! 🙂 Ok, so we’re up and at ’em this morning at 6:38 AM. I actually didn’t set an alarm because (in theory) Quinn’s OK to Wake! Clock is our alarm clock. He usually comes…

Good morning, friends! How’s your Thursday going so far? I feel like this week has been a whirlwind, which is a nice change from the previous couple of weeks where I felt like I was a day ahead, but life was really a day behind. Whomp whomp. Anyway, my morning yesterday started bright and early with a walk around the neighborhood with my favorite pug dog. I typically walk Murphy before Mal leaves for school, and I…

Good morning! You guys know how much I love Trader Joe’s, right? Of course, you do. I’m also a big fan of scoring deals and doing things efficiently, so when Remy from Miss Mamie’s Cupcakes reached out about sharing her “secrets” to saving time and money at Trader Joe’s, I was ALLLLL about it. I love stuff like this, and she had so many awesome ideas, many of which were news to me! 🙂 So, without further ado,…

Hi, guys! Happy Sunday evening! I hope you had a wonderful weekend!! So, I just realized I haven’t written a High Low High post since September. Holy cow, where did the past couple of months go?! Yowsahs. If you’re unfamiliar with this blog post series, I recap my weekend by sharing both the high and low points from it. I always like to end on a high note, so there’s typically more highs than lows!…

Hi, guys! I made this super simple Vegalicious Chopped Avocado Tuna Salad for lunch the other day, and I just had to share the recipe. It only requires four ingredients, so you can whip it up in a matter of minutes. It’s also really healthy and really delicious, so it’s definitely a recipe that you’ll want to make again and again! It’s perfect as a quick lunch, dinner, or snack! Vegalicious Chopped Avocado Tuna Salad Serves 2: …

Good morning and a very happy Monday to you! Somehow I haven’t done a Life Via iPhone (aka “photo dump) post since January. Whattttt?! I know a lot of you guys enjoy them, so it’s definitely time for another one. I’m also really into Snapchat lately, so I’ve included some fun “snaps” too. (FYI:  You can find me on Snapchat by name at ‘carrotsncake’.) Ok, so without further ado, here’s a glimpse into our life…

Hey, hey! Happy Sunday! Just popping in real quick to share my meal plan for the week. I received a few requests over on Instagram, and I actually used to share my meal plans all the time on CNC, so maybe I should bring it back? Perhaps? Here’s what’s on the agenda this week!

Hi, friends! Happy Monday and happy National Truffle Day to you! Be sure to stop by your local Lindt Chocolate Shop to receive a complimentary LINDOR truffle! And don’t forget that my May Booty Challenge starts today! I hope you decide to join in! We had a really nice weekend, so here’s a recap via superlatives! BEST THING I ATE: It’s a toss up between The Big Island pizza (grilled chicken, smoky bacon, scallions, sweet potatoes, BBQ sauce, pineapple…

Good morning and happy Marathon Monday to you! Today is my favorite day of the entire year. I absolutely love Marathon Monday (aka Patriot’s Day aka the day that the Boston Marathon is run) because it (typically) symbolizes the start of Spring with the nicer weather and people engaging in many more outdoor activities. It’s like everyone comes out of hibernation after the long winter. And, of course, the energy around the marathon is contagious. I loved Marathon Monday…
