Happy Friday! Here’s some good news for you guys (or maybe just me) — they finally turned on the AC in our building! It wasn’t projected to turn on until June 1st, but with rising temperatures on the horizon, they caved. I’m really excited to actually sleep through the night now. This week was a weird mix of gloomy rain weather and cooler sunshine. We have a couple things on the agenda this weekend (hello Deadpool 2!), but nothing too crazy. Hope you guys have a great couple days and can’t wait to get back to you with Monday’s post!… View Post

For some reason I always forget about rice cakes. I rediscovered them last year when I was participating in a fitness challenge at my gym and had to stick to certain ratios of carbs, protein, and fats. They’re an amazing source of pre or post workout carbs, but once the challenge was over and I stopped tracking what I was eating, I quickly forgot about them again. The past couple weeks I’ve had a new awakening to rice cakes again, but it can get a little boring just slathering on some nut butter (cashew FO LIFE) and chowing down. I… View Post

Fear of the unknown is a big reason why a lot of people stay where they are. I get it — change is scary. I’m actually terrified of change and do not ease into it well at all.

On purpose — saying yes — is a choice YOU make and often the one people have trouble with, especially if it means something hard. You can find tons of self-help posts on the… View Post

Hey hey everyone! I hope you had a fabulous week and are ready to get out and have an even better weekend. I tried working on my chapter rewrites to resubmit for my book, but the day I sat down to do it my mind was all over the place and it became pretty clear after a couple hours that that day was not the day. They are high priority on my to-do list, so I’m aiming to get them done as soon as possible. Aside from that, things were pretty normal around here. I almost wasn’t able to figure… View Post

I’ve got a special recipe for you today from my friend Lindsay who recently released a BEAUTIFUL cookbook called Nourishing Superfood Bowls. I’ve followed Lindsay’s blog, Cotter Crunch, for several years and was finally able to meet her last year at the Everything Food Conference. I’m a huge fan of her photography and her food, so I’m really proud of her for putting together this compilation of breakfast, lunch, family-style, plant-based, and dessert bowls. She is also gluten-free, as are all the recipes in this book. I highly suggest grabbing a copy for yourself (or someone else), which you can… View Post
