    Today is a pretty epic day for PBR. It's my dad's first recipe post! I can't even begin to tell you how happy it makes me that he's going to be regularly contributing around here. Let me back up and tell you the story of me + my dad + my love for cooking. My [...]

  • Cranberry Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal {Recipe}

    { 28 comments }

    Good morning! I promised the apple cinnamon oatmeal recipe yesterday but then I got distracted. By babies! Two of my best friends just had babies within a week of each other. They are 3 and 4 weeks old. I met one friend for lunch and another for a walk and visit. This baby is like, [...]

  • Spiced Zucchini Carrot Bread {Recipe}

    { 23 comments }

    This is the time of the year when everyone starts to feel pretty over the surplus of summer veggies and fast forwards to fall. My favorite farmer at the farmers market gave me an oversized zucchini a few weeks ago because they weren't selling. Everyone was starting to go for the winter squash instead. My mind immediately went [...]

  • In My Kitchen: Green Smoothie Video Tutorial

    { 27 comments }

    I know that I blog about green smoothies A LOT but over the last year I've gone from being an occasional smoothie drinker to having one almost every day. I used to find smoothies to be unsatisfying because I thought I needed something to "chew" and I always felt hungry after I ate them. I [...]

  • Fresh Peach Cake {Recipe}

    { 18 comments }

    It's peach season y'all! Growing up in Georgia, peaches were a big deal...we are the peach state after all. ;) Little did I know that after moving to the Carolinas (I've lived in North and South Carolina) that South Carolina peaches are also a big deal and equally as delicious as Georgia peaches. I have [...]

  • Blueberry Banana Muffins {Recipe}

    { 17 comments }

    Good morning! I always keep bananas in the house for smoothies and sometimes they get a little too ripe before I get around to using them. I know many people freeze their bananas for smoothies but since all the other fruit I use in my smoothies is frozen, I like having the banana to add [...]

  • Mixed Berries with Balsamic, Basil and Mint

    { 16 comments }

    Happy Friday! A day of rain and thunderstorms has left behind a cool, crisp morning with lots of sunshine and everything looking bright and green. I mixed up my favorite green smoothie combo for breakfast. I just love this mix! 1/2 banana 1/2 cup frozen mango 1/2 cup frozen peaches 1 tablespoon almond butter 3 [...]

  • Olive Oil & Greek Yogurt Lemon Chia Seed Muffins

    { 20 comments }

    Good morning! It's a rainy, chilly and dreary day here in Charlotte so it seems like the perfect morning to share a baking recipe with you. I don't know about you but this kind of weather always makes me want to cozy up in the kitchen with a cup of hot tea and play around. [...]

    I know I said I was going to post a workout today but then I made these muffins this morning and I had to share the recipe immediately. So we'll eat muffins first and then we'll do a squat workout later! :) It's no secret that peanut butter ranks is one of my favorite foods [...]

  • Packing More Protein Into Breakfast with AllWhites Egg Whites {Recipe & Giveaway}

    { 351 comments }

    Breakfast is an important meal that I never skip. There are so many benefits of eating breakfast including higher energy levels, increased mental focus, better portion control throughout the day, metabolism boost and maintaining body weight. My struggle with breakfast is getting enough protein. I blogged about how important protein is as a part of [...]

  • Easy & Healthy Homemade Granola Bars

    { 42 comments }

    Today I had the great honor of giving a presentation about healthy eating to a group of nearly 40 young local gymnasts. These girls are on the competitive team at International Gymnastics and they train over 20 hours a week, including 4 hours after school every day. We talked about fueling their bodies for their [...]

    { 16 comments }

    Here is the first of the recipes from Bakin' and Eggs. Some recipes I will actually be remaking, rephotographing and reblogging and others I'll just be reposting. Today is a repost because I wanted to get this recipe up before the last of the peaches are gone and I'm happy with the photography here. Some [...]

  • Perfect Paleo Banana Bread {Recipe}

    { 151 comments }

    For a very long time I was firmly in the camp of "if I'm going to bake it's going to be with butter, sugar, flour and eggs." I had zero interest in vegan, gluten-free, Paleo or healthy baking of any kind. Then I started managing a CrossFit gym and becoming engrained in the CrossFit culture [...]

  • Overnight Homemade Cinnamon Rolls

    { 19 comments }

    Hola! I'm back in Charlotte where it's sunny and 80 degrees. That's how we do things in the South. It was 40 degrees and sleeting this time last week. Now we've fast-forwarded right into early summer. It will be 90 degrees before we know it. I LOVE IT. Okay, the real reason for this post [...]

  • Gluten-Free, Refined Sugar-Free Mini Carrot Cake Cupcakes

    { 14 comments }

    I can count the number of the times I've tried to bake desserts that skew more towards healthy than sinful and my experiences have mostly led me to believe that when you want a sweet, you just need to go for it. There was one incident where Pintest led me to believe it was a [...]

  • Pumpkin In The Morning

    { 18 comments }

    Last night I wrote this whole post on 2012 and my feelings about all of the change and struggle that myself and everyone around me seem to be going through. I definitely questioned whether or not I really wanted to publish it because y'all know I have a hard time with the "putting myself out [...]

  • Coconut Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

    { 18 comments }

    How's that for a recipe title? It could also be known as "open the pantry and fridge and throw in everything that you have banana bread."  I had two bananas that were destined for the trash can if I didn't find a use for them yesterday. I am a little over traditional banana bread so [...]

  • Weekend Eats + Banana Blueberry Pancake Recipe

    { 26 comments }

    The whole house is clean and more organized than it's been in months. I mopped, organized closets, did laundry, changed sheets, cleaned out drawers...the works. I even did some yard work and trimmed the front hedges. Unfortunately, it was miserable and I got at least 20 mosquito bites in the process. They are attracted to [...]

  • A Holiday Twist On Breakfast

    { 15 comments }

    Good morning and happy December 1st! I cannot believe that the final month of 2011 has arrived. I usually don't really get into Christmas until December rolls around. There are certain things I look forward to that get me in the holiday spirit...putting up a tree, listening to Christmas music, seeing all the decorations and [...]

  • Easy and Healthy Banana Muffins

    { 29 comments }

    I’m popping in with a lunch break update for you because I have a recipe to share! I buy bananas every week at the store and sometimes I end up with bananas that are a little past their prime…even for oatmeal. (I prefer bananas with brown spots for oatmeal because they are sweeter and mix [...]

  • Pancakes for Dinner

    { 9 comments }

    My day started and ended with breakfast. Yum! Breakfast for dinner is the best and I don't know why we don't have it more often! Is anyone else a fan of breakfast for dinner? Before we get to the pancakes, let's start at the beginning. Breakfast: overnight oats at my desk this morning. I was [...]

  • Pumpkin Banana Oatmeal

    { 10 comments }

    Today I attended a workshop at my yoga studio from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. I needed a breakfast that would really stay with me and power me through a long day since I knew I wouldn't want much for lunch. I know I've mentioned this before but it's really hard for me to practice [...]

  • Overnight Oats

    { 64 comments }

    I've received a lot of questions lately about overnight oats - how they're prepared, do you eat them cold, what exactly are they. I promised that I would share my go-to recipe and explain how I make them. Overnight oats are eaten cold. They are a mixture of milk, yogurt, oats and whatever else you [...]
