Quesadilla time!

I was looking through my blog archives the other day and realized that I haven’t made a quesadilla recipe in century.

Okay century might be a bit of an exaggeration; if we’re being technical, it’s been two years. TWO YEARS since tortillas and cheese danced on my tongue in sweet matrimony.

How much can you fall in love with a food? Because I’ve fallen into a deep dark love affair with this chocolate avocado pudding pie.

I know, I know. Sounds weird, right? But at this point I feel like you all know me well enough that if I put a peculiar ingredient in something and tell you it’s amazing, you know I’m speaking the truth. The proof? Black bean avocado brownies. Chickpea chocolate chip cookies. Chickpea blondies. Black bean truffles. Lentil blondies.

Whoop whoop! We’re finally in the final stretch of the Summer Sweat Series and heading into the heat of July. Can you believe we’ve been sweating our faces off for almost FOUR weeks now? You guys seriously killed it this year and I’m thrilled I was able to see all of your hard work through Instagram and our FB group.

It’s like I’m a proud mama right now.

Hi! I’m back with weekend favorites and I have to apologize for missing the last two weeks. Unfortunately the internet on the cruise ship wasn’t the best so I’m sorry to leave you hangin’!

Oh by the way, I cut 9 inches off my hair. NINE INCHES. I love it and plan on going shorter next week because after that I won’t be cutting it for a very long time.

I’m back in the USA. Everything is already more expensive, especially after my run to Target yesterday. I got home, the house was a disaster and we literally had no food. I’m not sure what Tony was eating but I did find a bag full of empty Ruffles and a jar of pistachios with ONLY SHELLS in the cupboard.

Jeeze.

When I first started my blog, I had just moved to Washington D.C., was utterly confused about what to do with my life and had endless amounts of student loans. I knew that that I needed to support myself, make a decent income and be independent. So I took a job in marketing at a engineering consulting firm.

Guys, it was terrible. I mean truly awful.

If there’s one thing I’ve been hearing over and over about this year’s Summer Sweat Series, it’s about how much you’re LOVING the meal plans.

While creating the plan, I thought about a few things: 1) It needs to be as delicious and FILLING as possible, 2) There’s no fun in eating grilled chicken breasts and steamed veggies every day; and 3) let’s just EAT REAL, NUTRITIOUS FEEL-GOOD FOOD!

Hello from the beautiful Bordeaux, France countryside! Currently I’m on a cruise ship sailing around Europe and loving every second of it.

Since I’ve been traveling on and off over the past month, the Summer Sweat Series workouts that Lindsey of Nourish Move Love created have come in handy nearly every single day. They kick my ass, make me drip sweat and keep this girl happy while she tries to eat balanced on a food/wine cruise. HALPPPP.
