  • Recent Eats with the Recent Whole Foods Haul

    { 9 comments }

    Last week I wrote a post about what I bought at Whole Foods for $137. Grocery store haul posts are always so interesting to me because everyone has such a different perspective on food shopping and food budgeting. One thing I notice is that the area where you live seems to make a big impact [...]

  • Recent Eats: Bolognese, Scallops + The Best Apples

    { 34 comments }

    Oh my gosh. Today was nuts! I literally didn't stop moving all day. For those of you who love "day in the life" here's brief synopsis of mine. 5:30-9 a.m. - gym...train 3 clients and meeting 9 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. - home for breakfast, write first PBR blog post, respond to comments and so [...]

  • Job Love + Blog Direction + Recent Eats

    { 47 comments }

    Hi everyone. I hope the return to the real world after the long weekend was kind to all of you. Not gonna lie, I groaned when the alarm went off at 5:30 a.m. but once my feet were on the floor I made it a happy and productive day. One thing that starts my days on [...]

  • Day in the Life: A Holiday Week

    { 8 comments }

    4:50 a.m. - alarm goes off. I didn't fall asleep until midnight (with the help of a guided meditation) so this felt very early after three weeks straight of 5:30 a.m. clients and lack of quality sleep. 5:30 a.m. - gym to train a client who is in her third trimester and a close friend [...]

  • A Slow-Paced Tuesday + Recent Eats

    { 7 comments }

    Tuesday used to be the busiest day of the week for me and I was crazy busy running all over town to train and teach. Lately they've been a pretty relaxed day for me. If I did a "day in the life" post today, you'd all be pretty surprised. I started early with 5:30 and [...]

  • A Day of Meals with MorningStar Farms {Giveaway}

    { 346 comments }

    I have been buying veggie burgers since I was in college. MorningStar Farms was one of the first brands that I ever tried. 10 years ago they were one of the only brands of veggie burgers! When I first started eating veggie burgers I ate them like a straight up burger. Over the years I [...]

  • Recent (REALLY GOOD!) Eats + Rethinking Mashed Cauliflower

    { 23 comments }

    I take back all the mean things that I said about mashed cauliflower. I was too quick to judge! Back in December I made mashed cauliflower at home for the first time. The problem was that I gave it a half-hearted effort and tried to puree it in small batches in my tiny food processor. [...]

  • How To Rebound from an Indulgent Holiday

    { 22 comments }

    Yesterday my Instagram and Facebook feeds were full of sweet family photos, beautiful Easter dresses, babies with bunny ears, Easter dinner spreads, mimosas and the like. This morning my feeds are overflowing with posts about Easter indulgences, candy overload and needing to get back on track. I even received a text message from Earth Fare [...]

  • Here Comes the Snow + Recent Eats + Snacking Before Dinner

    { 22 comments }

    Good morning! Rise and shine! It is going to snow in Charlotte today but just a light dusting with no ice so it should be fun. The weather is absolutely nuts because on Monday it was 65 degrees and I ran in shorts and a tank. This morning it's 28 and going to snow. Winters [...]

  • Lemon Parmesan Salmon {Recipe}

    { 17 comments }

    Salmon is a grocery staple for me and I almost always end up eating it for lunch or dinner at least once a week. I have my tried and true simple recipe down but I'm always looking for ways to switch it up. I found a winner last week! This one was totally self-developed based [...]

  • Comfort Food In The Cold

    { 19 comments }

    Good morning! I hope y'all are having a great week so far. How is it already Wednesday? It's flying by! We had one of those crazy turns in weather yesterday where it was 60 degrees at 10 a.m. but the wind picked up and the temperature dropped quickly. It was 40 and dark by 4 [...]

  • Eating Healthy And Homemade When You Are Busy

    { 33 comments }

    It's no secret that I work a lot. One of the questions that I have been asked countless times over the years is how I have the energy and creativity to make homemade meals when I'm working long days and late hours. The first thing I always say is that it's like therapy for me. [...]
