Grab ’em and go

What do you grab when you’re in a hurry? If you’re like most people, it’s junk. I can remember walking to the corner store armed with a pocket full of change and a desire to check off everything on my list – Laffy Taffy, Hot Fries, Slim Jims, and Blow Pops. My 10-year-old self was... Continue Reading →

Cookie Heaven

If you love coconut, you have to try Rickaroons, and I mean HAVE TO! They are healthy desserts that your taste buds will crave. I mean, how often can you call a cookie an “energizing snack” that is vegan, gluten free, 100% organic, non-GMO, Paleo, soy free AND totally delicious? Answer: not often. The Rickaroon...

Real Fat, Real Food

When I did my first Whole30 I stayed far away from canola and other vegetable oils. Now I can actually taste when a product - like kettle cooked potato chips - is fried in "the bad stuff." It's so prominent that it overtakes the taste of the actual food and makes me a little queasy.... Continue Reading →

Sadly, there is only so much dairy we... Continue Reading →

Maybe, just maybe, if everyone added a little more joy (AKA coffee) to their day, the world would be a better place. When I think about a good-for-you coffee, I only think... Continue Reading →

Fat is your friend 

Lately my skin has been super difficult and unruly. I thought I had it good with a new regimen I found at the beginning of the summer. But, the truth is that there are a ton of junky products out there masquerading as healthy, all-natural snacks for your skin. If you’re looking for the real-deal... Continue Reading →

Whole30 – The beginning 

I don't cook every night. I try, but every now and then it's just too much - I'm tired, have to do laundry, and sometimes I just don't want to adult. I'm totally guilty of sending the quick afternoon text: pizza or nah? Spoiler: the answer is always pizza. If you follow my blog, you... Continue Reading →
