I’m a firm believer that every BBQ or party should have at least a few healthy choices available for guests to nosh on. No one wants to show up and only be served mayo-loaded potato salad, overly salted potato chips, hot dogs, cake from the grocery store and cantaloupe that tastes like it’s out of a GMO factory.
Okay, maybe those are only the parties I’ve been to. Whomp whomp.
Good morning! I’m headed to Boston today to hang out with Sarah for a few days before we depart to Europe. Seriously feeling exciting, anxious and thankful to have this experience. I’ve always wanted to go to Europe, but even better when it’s on a small cruise ship hitting up Ireland, France, Spain and Portugal.
Bucket list item, for sure.
Are you excited?! The Summer Sweat Series officially launches today and I couldn’t be more excited. Lee and I have been busy getting ready to bring you FREE healthy meal plans, grocery lists and killer workouts for the next 30 days.
I know many of you have been eagerly waiting for the Summer Sweat Series to arrive again. Before we get into all the details, the best way to stay up to date is by signing up for my email list to get new updates and also join our FB group to get early access to each week’s meal plan & grocery list. We’d LOVE for you to join us!
OMG guys, it’s JUNE. I’m running around like a chicken with my head cut off. I’ve been trying to work as much as possible (including perfecting GF cookies) over the past week in preparation for the Summer Sweat Series launch this Sunday, travel to Minneapolis for our launch party, a trip to Boston and EUROPE.
Seriously, how exciting is this summer so far? The answer is VERY.
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups were always my favorite candy as a kid. Classic case of nostalgia.
During Halloween I’d go through my bag and pick out all Reese’s and set them aside for extra special treat days. I had to savor them because Mom didn’t buy Reese’s often. When Easter came along and Reese’s eggs were popular, I was allowed to have exactly one. I cherished that Reese’s egg with my entire soul.
How was May for you? Did you take the time to celebrate the little things? To relish in all of your wonderful accomplishments?
Sometimes we forget to do those things, don’t we? One of my suggestions to do today is to write down five things you accomplished last month that you’re proud of.
My love for enchiladas is pretty close in line with my endless love for nut butters. I hate to compare the two, but it’s true when I say I’d adore them any way they’re served.
During my recent trip to Santa Fe, my Mom and I enjoyed the most unique and flavorful enchiladas. Each restaurant presented them with the most beautiful creative and flavorful sauces ranging from smoky red chile, mole, Hatch green chile and the beloved salsa verde. The best part about these sauces is that they have plenty of uses; dip your chips, smother your eggs and coat your meats. SAUCE PARTY.
Hello from beautiful Santa Fe, New Mexico! I jumped on a plane on Tuesday so I could spend some time here visiting the family. My mom and I took the train from Albuquerque to Santa Fe and have been bopping around the town enjoying street fajitas, gelato, specialty shops & the unique Southwest culture.
Bread is back baby. That’s right, we’re toasting it up, then throwing on ALL the toppings on today’s Wellness Wednesday in partnership with my wonderful friends over at Blue Diamond.
I don’t know about you, but morning toast happens to be one of my absolute favorite ways to enjoy a quick, nutritious breakfast. Over the past few years, bread has gotten a bad rap mostly due to people experimenting with gluten or grain free diets. Today I’m making a claim that bread (or toast) is back and ready to be enjoyed again!
So, why do I love bread so much? It’s easy to throw in the toaster making it a quick on-the-go breakfast. Of course I’ve been through my peanut butter, almond butter & avocado toast phase, but today we’re moving on to bigger and better toppings. Toppings that are as beautiful as they are delicious to eat. Toppings that you may have never thought to put on your toast…
