What am I hungry for?

I wish I could say this post was a giant metaphor – something about me searching for my purpose in life, but no. I’m actually talking about being hungry, and food. The past few days, I’ve been feeling a little weird. My hunger is the same, but literally NOTHING sounds good to eat. In fact, […]

Holiday weekend EATS.

You guys!! We are on the cusp of one of my favorite times of year – summer! In Texas, the later months of summer are waaaay too hot to enjoy much of anything, so this beginning part sure is something to celebrate. Before my Vegas vacation, I know I talked a lot about my efforts […]

Hello, vegan food.

Okay, so I’m not going totally vegan, but I’ve been incorporating much more vegan meals into my life than ever before. I’ve been eating on a pretty strict diet for the last five weeks, plus prancing around the dance studio nearly every day, and I’m finally starting to see some results. I didn’t make a […]

This week’s menu…

I set several goals for 2017, and none of them included anything about being healthier or skinnier, or more fit this year. But I’m definitely trying to clean up my act after completely letting go during the holidays. I don’t eat out much (unless it’s going to be really, really worth it). I truly believe […]

I felt incredibly overwhelmed, so I decided […]

Pic of the Week.

Hobby Lobby has officially dumped the contents of its shelves into my apartment — and it is a beautiful, sparkly mess — which, is actually really exciting for my kitty, Blanche. After that crappy week I told you all about, I was really excited to get involved in a good craft project. Every year, one […]

Single Girl Recipe: “Prownies”

I’ve spent the last few months trying to make different protein bars from scratch, so I could avoid buying the expensive ones from the store. I used bags of coconut flour, coconut oil, unsweetened coconut, protein powder, flaxseed, paleo-friendly chocolate chips… and while, some of the recipes I tried were okay, they weren’t really what […]

Pic of the week.

Today is my 7th day living 100% Paleo! I have joined my two best girlfriends in a Paleo Challenge for the month of January. The Paleo diet is high in protein and vegetables, and without dairy, grains, or beans. Of course, no highly processed foods or sugar (except for those in fruits). I’ve actually enjoyed […]
