Wellness Wednesday post coming at you today and it’s got me all jazzed up about breakfast again. Specifically oatmeal toppings, because who doesn’t love a feel good, fill me up bowl of steaming oats topped with all the tasty toppings?

I should preface this post by saying that I’m sorry my Wellness Wednesdays have been few and far between. I’ve been working hard on content and so over the next few months you should see many more WW popping up on the blog! *Clap, Clap*

Today, we start the day off with healthy oatmeal toppings that have given me some serious inspiration to start eating oatmeal again. I’ve mentioned before that I used to eat oatmeal every single day for breakfast and sometimes dinner in college. Yes, I loved it THAT much.

Oh hi Monday, you’re here again. Do you have your cup of joe? Maybe paired with a big bowl of steaming hot oatmeal with blueberries for breakfast? Me too.

I got back from Nantucket last night and all I wanted to do was prepare a few healthy meals for the week. Personally I’ve found that the trick to maintaining a successful weight loss is to be prepared when it comes to food; always easier said than done though, right? 

Right.

Happy, happy weekend!

This weekend I’m heading to Boston Pops in Nantucket with Lorissa’s Kitchen. I’m really freaking excited because Lee, Liz and Davida will be too… hello girl’s weekend! We’ll be there helping to promote Lorissa’s Kitchen products so make sure to follow along on Instagram & Snapchat (username: AmbitiousKitch).

This past week I did some recipe consulting with Flatout Bread and we shot two full days of recipe videos in a gorgeous Chicago home. It reminded me how much I love doing video and need to find a way to do more!

Speaking of videos, Rose and I will be doing a Facebook Live video next Friday. If you want to see me make anything specific, let me know!

How’s your fridge looking these days? Overflowing with bright berries & fresh seasonal produce? Mine is packed to the brim.I mean seriously guys, when you have an obsession with buying all the fruit on sale from Peapod, finding room in the fridge becomes a real problem. Flavors just seem to dance around in my head all day and the next thing I know, I’ve got more than just a few grocery bags to unload.

So what’s a girl to do? Well, sometimes it’s just necessary to throw everything in a blender and enjoy a refreshing smoothie. Often, the random ingredients create the most delicious flavors. Case in point: this watermelon smoothie packed with cherries, berries & creamy almond milk.

Oh, Europe! I love you more than you know.

Didn’t it feel like everyone you know went to Europe this Summer? And why wouldn’t you? The food is fantastic, the people are lovely, and there’s a vast array of land to explore.

How are you? I’m writing this as I enjoy fresh raspberries with real whipped cream and an episode of Mr. Robot. Sometimes a fresh fruit summer dessert is all you need. And Rami Malek. Also, wine.

How incredible would it be if I drove up to your house in a truck that served ONLY muffins? Would we automatically be BFFs? Would you pay me in gold?

Hopefully the thought of me rolling up in a muffin truck and handing out muffins doesn’t sound weird. I have good intentions, I swear.

Happy Monday! I’m coming at you full force with some of my favorite healthy DIY snack mixes in partnership with my friends at Blue Diamond Almonds, who is the Official Snack Nut of the Team USA Swimming! This time I’m back sharing a few of my favorite go-to healthier snack mixes that help me to feel inspired, energized and follow my “Lane to Greatness“.

If you know me well, you’d know that nothing excites me more than a good snack. From energy bites to toast with all the toppings, I’m always making something different because a girl’s gotta have her options. Am I right?

I think I’ve said this before, but if I don’t have a snack every 2 to 3 hours, I get absolutely the WORST kind of hangry. I can’t speak or think; all that’s dancing through my head is food. GIANT FOOD DANCING TELLING ME TO COME AND GET IT.

Snack cravings are real.

I can’t believe it’s the last weekend of July! Part of me wants to go frolic in a field of sunflowers while sunshine beams down; in one hand I’m holding a green smoothie and the other — a giant chocolate donut.

Wait a second, that sounds way too much like a Taylor Swift music video, right?

In actuality, the summer has been wonderful so far and because of that I’d like it to last forever and ever. I’ve been traveling, we bought a house (!!!) and the weather has been nearing 90 degrees daily.
