Published!

I’ve been published! For the first time a recipe of mine has been “printed.” FastPaleo is an awesome resource and recipe website and for the past few years they have put out a Top 100 recipe e-book, and my Macadamia Nut Pesto was chosen as one of the Top 100 of 2013! I’m super excited…

10 Tips for Surviving Grad School (Without a Microwave)

Okay, so truth is…I do have a microwave. But it’s never used for cooking a meal, mostly just for reheating my coffee. Or warming up some coconut butter. Eating well is so crucial to staying healthy. Making a habit of microwave meals or grabbing fast food are great ways to make yourself tired or sick, or…

What I’m Loving Now (January)

I may not be loving writing comprehensive exams, but I’m loving being in my last semester of grad school and I’m loving these things… RxBars I talked a little about these on my Facebook page. I’m in love with these. They are a less sweet, more substantial (higher protein) version of the Larabar — with whole ingredients,…

Acorn Squash Breakfast Scramble

Flourless Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars

I just love Fall. Don’t you just want to be in this photo? Credit goes to Christine, my best friend of (almost) 27 years! There have been jokes that it’s a ploy to convince me to move to Colorado Springs. Well, if so, it’s working! A year from now I might really be getting to…
