Pumpkin Protein Shake!

Pumpkin Protein Shake!

Why yes, the title is completely worthy of an exclamation. I will shout it from the rooftops, I love pumpkin-flavor things! On my quest for all things pumpkin, I came across a few Pinterest recipes for pumpkin smoothies. And since I had pumpkin puree on hand and wanted to use up some of my protein … Continue reading

The BEST Protein Shake.

This post is short and sweet to get you through your Monday. (Is this short week not feeling so short to anyone else, or is it just me?!) While I was in Iowa City last weekend with Max’s family, his mom introduced me to my new favorite protein shake combo! Lucky for me, I had … Continue reading

Exerciseee the Demon.

Exerciseee the Demon.

I’ve had an awesome week/weekend full of friends, drinks, and food. Lots of food. Now don’t get me wrong, those are the best kinds of weeks and I wouldn’t trade them for anything, but I needed a day to detox. And Sunday just happened to be that day. I decided to do a day full … Continue reading

My Veggie Garden!

My Veggie Garden!

Unlike my parents, I wasn’t gifted with a green thumb. I think gardens are beautiful, but I’ve never been a natural at keeping things alive…whether that be hermit crabs or bamboo plants. Last summer, I tried my hand at a tomato plant. Although it grew like crazy, it unfortunately didn’t produce the best tomatoes. Some … Continue reading

My personal favorite is the cherry blossom tree…when I have a house, those are a necessity for my yard, so beautiful! Here we go, top Funs for … Continue reading

Let’s Do Lunch.

Let’s Do Lunch.

Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you had a fantastic weekend! Turns out the Red Flannel Run was freezing, but we had a great time. And the dogs in flannel made it TOTALLY worth it. Inspired by one of my Friday Funs last week, I’ve decided to elaborate a bit on packing lunches. A few friends … Continue reading

Friday “Funs”

Friday “Funs”

As this whole blog thing is still pretty new, I’m still tweaking things and deciding what I want to write about. After reflecting on the past week, it looks like my main focus is health, food, and crafty things, depending on what I’m currently cooking/making/eating! I’ve decided to use Fridays as a day of reflection … Continue reading

Protein Bars: the good, the bad, and the fattening

Protein Bars: the good, the bad, and the fattening

Upon starting my blog, I’ve had a few requests of things to post about (yay! keep them coming!). One of those things was protein bars. The general question was, “What is your favorite, best tasting, healthy protein bar?” I’m actually not a big protein/energy bar eater, as I opt for other snacks throughout the day, … Continue reading

Go Green.

My earlier post inspired me to prepare a few green snacks for tomorrow. Not green as in healthy, although they are, but green as in the color. First, I whipped up an easy smoothie. Now, if you’re freaked out by the green color, you can substitute something else for the spinach, but I promise (xx … Continue reading
