Protein Packed Breakfast Shake

Protein Packed Breakfast Shake

Anyone who knows me, knows I LOVE breakfast!! I would eat it at every meal if I could! Some mornings are busier than others, but I never make that an excuse not to eat breakfast. A nutritious breakfast can not only provide you with all day energy, but will jump start your metabolism to burn off [...]

Is The Paleo Diet Right For Me?

Is The Paleo Diet Right For Me?

Recently I received an email from a fellow fitness-minded woman who I befriended on Instagram! She had asked me if I "recommended paleo". She also noted that some people said it was amazing and other claimed it made them gain weight. Let me say this before I get into the discussion: this is based solely [...]

Lemon Chicken Marinade

Lemon Chicken Marinade

Christian and I grill about 2 times every week. We always prepare our food before hand, meaning we cook a good amount of veggies and protein to keep in our fridge so we can pack healthy meals every day! He's a little more strict than I am since he's a body builder and is in [...]

Tea Time!

Tea Time!

Work has been SO busy lately! I have all these ideas swirling around in my head that I need to get onto paper (or should I say post)! If you follow me on Instagram (bottom right of this page) you know I kind of kicked coffee to the curb! GASP. I've always loved Tea, but [...]

Coffee Breath

Coffee Breath

Nobody likes coffee breath, and if you're like me, you talk to A LOT of people throughout the day. I'm not a HUGE fan of gum, and something about going from hot coffee to icy cold gum hurts my mouth.. maybe that's only me? BUT I have found a simple solution to not only get [...]

Homemade Squash Soup

Homemade Squash Soup

My wonderful soon-to-be-sister dropped off some beautiful, fresh squash! Sitting on my counter for probably over a week, I decided I had to do SOMETHING with them before they go bad. I've never cut or cooked with whole squash before so this was new to me. With some research I learned how to properly cut [...]

The Yummiest Salmon Recipe EVER!

The Yummiest Salmon Recipe EVER!

Christian and I have been alternating who makes dinner on Sundays before we watch Homeland [insert desperate cry for help that the last episode of the season is next week]. Being that he's a chef (Fun Fact: he went to culinary school at Johnson & Whales) I feel a certain amount of pressure to make [...]

Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

I've made these a few times now, and they are delicioussssss! Don't be alarmed when you feel the consistency of this batter; with almond meal, it tends to be super sticky, but have patience! When my niece and I made these the other day she was not so sure about the way the dough looked [...]

Far From What I Once Was, But Not Yet Where I Am Going To Be

Far From What I Once Was, But Not Yet Where I Am Going To Be

People see me today, and they think "she workouts, she eats healthy, it must be so easy for her". But what most people forget, is that everybody has a story, everybody has started somewhere, far from where they are today. This was me. Although not HUGE, I was very UNHEALTHY and bigger than I should [...]
