Celebrate Summer with New Twists on “Nice Cream”

Celebrate Summer with New Twists on “Nice Cream”

Hi friends! I am ONE WEEK away from summer break, and I couldn't be more excited. Though the weather has been cooler than usual this week, I know the sunshine is coming, so when Shari's Berries reached out to me about sharing this post, I jumped at the chance. I had heard of the company before [...]

Meal Prep Monday: Timed Nutrition Week 1

Meal Prep Monday: Timed Nutrition Week 1

As part of my current health and fitness program, I am currently following a timed nutrition program, so this post may look a little different from my previous meal prep posts. On this program, I am supposed to eat five small(ish) meals per day, timed around my workouts. Since I'll be working out in the [...]

My Low-Sugar Journey: Update!

I've basically given up on numbering these updates, particularly since I can't seem to stick to a regular posting schedule. Some weeks, I just don't have much to say. (*shrug*) Anyway, as I've mentioned before (in a post about habits and another about "food freedom"), I haven't had a lot of success with dietary "challenges" [...]

Book Review: Food Freedom Forever

Book Review: Food Freedom Forever

That's why, as I mentioned in a previous meal prep post, I have never been a big fan of meal prepping. In fact, [...]

Meal Prep Monday: Recipes and Inspiration for the Week Ahead

Meal Prep Monday: Recipes and Inspiration for the Week Ahead

I'm not a big "meal prepper," but yesterday, I spent most of the afternoon planning meals, shopping, and cooking. My husband was shocked. He was pleased, of course, because now he doesn't have to scrounge in the fridge to find lunch for work each day...but nevertheless, he was shocked. And honestly, although I hate eating [...]

#FoodinFilm Blogathon (Day 3): A Simple, Easy Watch Party Menu for “Chef”

On Friday, Rebecca over at Taking Up Room wrote about the food from Gilmore Girls. Today, my post is inspired by Lorelai and Rory's food-focused movie nights. Those girls take movie nights VERY seriously: The snacks are no joke either: Here's the thing about the Gilmores though. They love to eat, but cooking? Not so much. [...]
