    PB&J with a Twist

    If you know me, you know that I love peanut butter…like to the point that I’d go through a 16oz jar in 2 days. It’s become a rarity to have it in my house. Growing up, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches were a thing. Same with peanut butter and fluff. One of the ladies at the studio had never heard of it/never tried it and thought marshmallow fluff with peanut butter was a gross combination…I’m sorry Deb, but you are absolutely wrong. Anyways, back to the PB&J. I was heavily…

    Breakfast Nachos

    If you’re like me, you love nachos! If it’s on the menu somewhere and I don’t find anything else appealing…you can bet that I’m getting the nachos. A few months ago…actually I was still living in New Hampshire, I happened to have tortilla chips in the house. Any sort of chip in my house is a rarity. I decided instead of having my normal eggs and oats for breakfast, I would use the chips as my carb source! So the breakfast nachos were born! That morning, I used what I…

    10 Things That I Love

    I feel like this would have been a good article to write back when I started my blog 3 years ago, but my 10 loves in 2018 would’ve been a little different than what they are today. So, here I am, 3 years in with a list of the 10 things I love, and honestly wouldn’t want to live without. Defining what you love or enjoy and vice versa is a great way to get to know yourself and understand who / what you are…similar to defining your values, like…

  • CA BLT Bowl

    Chicken Avocado BLT Bowl

    Meal prep is an essential part of my life and weekly / daily routine. Every Sunday, I take 1-2 hours of the morning to prep all of my food for the week, that way it’s easy to grab and go. And it destroys any excuse I might make of not being prepared and tempting myself to get food while I’m out. I love this combo because 1) it’s macro friendly for everyone2) it’s simple and easily adjustable3) it isn’t bland / boring like some prepped meals can be Really though,…

  • 5 Tips to Survive Whole30

    I made it through 30 days of having black coffee and no cheese! Among a few other things! I just want to start by saying how much I actually ENJOYED these 30 days, they flew by and I feel awesome on so many levels! This past August, I had attempted Whole30 and bailed after just 4 days. After giving myself another 4 months of freedom from any sort of โ€˜dietโ€™ or restriction and also feeling like crap (due to eating anything and everything), I had had enough and was ready…

  • Flexibility through the Holidays

    I can’t believe Thanksgiving is 2 days away! This year has absolutely flown by. Seeing that it’s my 1st holiday season where I won’t be on prep, I’ve been thinking about how I want to approach the next 4 weeks of being repeatedly punched in the face by the amazing food that comes with Thanksgiving, holiday parties, and Christmas. Depending on the day, I have very limited to absolutely ZERO self control around food. Being in the off season and with no competition in sight until late 2020, one of…

  • Keep It Simple

    Every Sunday, I cook. Why? Because it makes life just a bit simpler and at least 1 part of my week will be a success. 2 years ago, meal prep was not even on my radar, at least not to the point it is today. 2 years ago, I made every excuse not to meal prep, some being the following: It’s too expensive It’s time consuming The food will be wasted I don’t have time I don’t know what to make I can’t eat the same thing every single day…
