Guys...want to know something funny? If you check out the bio on my site (About Me) I make a strong claim. I don't like oatmeal. Never have, but have always wanted to. Something about the sweet smell and all the exciting, variety of toppings, always had me drooling at the site of someone else's bowl...but gagging the second I brought the spoon to my mouth. I never understood why. Every item of food the disgusts me, does so in a very obvious way and I have no desire to eat or
Anytime I think about Easter I always think back to the time that my Mom went above and beyond on her scavenger hunt one year. She had my sister and I running around our home town (Balboa Island) and had our friends and neighbors in on it. Oh, and did I mention that we were both in high school when this happened? That story always makes me smile and always has me looking forward to this time of year. I'm a huge fan of Easter, but I'm also an even bigger fan of changing season
The other morning I woke and said to myself, "I'm going to make a salad." What?!... I knew that by starting the Whole30 there would come a day where I could no longer stomach scrambled eggs, sweet potatoes, and avocado (my go-to). However, I didn't exactly think that would manifest in the makings of an impromptu breakfast salad. I guess, to be honest, impromptu is a bit of a lie. When I first started the Whole30, I had been craving a true BLT and thought I'd try my hand at a
Guys, if you keep up with me and my blog, this post is going to sound pretty darn redundant. But, you know what? When you're as passionate about breakfast food as I am, who cares? I will always standby the fact that I believe breakfast is the most important meal of the day, if done right. Meaning, your first meal is loaded with nutrient dense foods, proteins, and complex carbs. In doing so, you will set yourself up for a pretty productive day - both food-wise and energy-wise.
Did I ever tell you guys that I used to be 30-35 pounds heavier than I am now? Crazy, right? I'm the happiest I've ever been with myself and my body, though I've never been ashamed of where I once was. You can see the difference most notably in my face and arms. While ~30lbs isn't some drastic change, I'm super proud of where I am now. I'm not exactly sure where my brain kicked in and told me that I needed to start eating better and to stop being so lazy (seriously, I can lay
Last night I began my Vote by Mail Ballot. I have an irrational fear of completing my ballot and mailing it in just slightly too late to have my vote not properly counted, so I'm starting early. I won't get into an obvious political discussion for this season because I despise arguing (and, let's be frank politics more often than not lead straight into screaming matches for most) and quite honestly, this election season is constantly surrounding us and I don't feel the need t
