Chocolate Avocado Pudding (with a bonus superfood ingredient!)

December 9, 2012

I made chocolate avocado pudding this weekend (again). I’ve always loved this stuff, and it’s quite a fun game to spring it on people who (a) don’t like avocados or (b) don’t know what the ingredients are. I’ve never had anyone guess that the main ingredient is avocado, and the only people who don’t like [...]

Crispy Grain Free Turkey, Bacon, Avocado Bites (with avocado chipotle dip)

October 18, 2012

After I made the pizza bites the other day, I knew I had to try other varieties too. It’s been a long time since I’ve eaten lots of grains, and for the most part, I don’t miss them. Sometimes I’d love a piece of crunchy toast, but mostly I’m happy with coconut flour flatbread and [...]

Wine, Protein Shake, and Fancy Grilled Cheese (but not together)

May 13, 2012

I had a really busy weekend, and just have a couple things to share with you. I worked out several times, and am currently icing my achilles. I don’t know, maybe I jumped over/on too many tractor tires with my trainer this morning, but he didn’t seem to think so! On Friday night, I met [...]

It’s a Super{food} Kind of Day

April 11, 2012

Today was another beautiful day in South Carolina…The trees on James Island are amazing—canopies over the streets. There is so much sun and also filtered light through the trees. We did a lot today–but not really much that was productive. (I mean, I did a few hours of work in the morning and randomly throughout [...]

Happy Valentine’s Day—What do you love?

February 14, 2012

In my house, we don’t really celebrate Valentine’s Day…well, we did sort of—by going out to lunch on Saturday (but we would have done that anyway). We joke that every day is Valentine’s Day in our house…and we’re just not really into the gift/commercial aspect of holidays. I am planning on buying a valentine gift [...]

WIAW: Avocado Salad…with Figs!

June 22, 2011

First Thing: If you’re here for the tuna recipe, which by the way, is not an endangered species, go get it here. Although a very specific (tipsy) public figure decided to trash me on twitter for posting a tuna recipe (apparently,¬†promoting more veggies and less tuna is not sufficient in saving the waning tuna-to-be-canned population [...]

The Spiralizer, Sun Warrior, and Kitchen Sink Hummus

February 17, 2011

I very much love my iPad. I’ve already downloaded several books—this may become a problem because I love books, and it’s way too easy to just click them into the palm of my hand. They are cheaper to download than buy though! The case for the iPad can stand up on its own, so when [...]

Lazy Lady’s Guac, Daytime PJ’s, Winter Cleaning, More Veggies…

January 4, 2011

I’m working at home again (read: big smile and daytime pj’s—which could usually double as yoga attire, but my yoga instructor is in India right now). I meant to go get coffee at Starbucks, but when I went outside, I only made it as far as Bruegger’s (crossing Monroe felt like too big of a [...]

Par to the Snips, and other Sunday Thoughts

January 2, 2011

Even though I don’t make resolutions at New Year’s, I do see the value and impact that the connotation of the date can have on our lifestyles. ¬†And if you know me even a little bit, you know I’m all about cheating when it comes to getting healthier and improving habits (with minimal effort and [...]

I’ll Fly, You Buy…

November 29, 2010

It was Sunday night. Joe was starving, and I was sick (and had been sitting at the computer for too many hours)…so I offered to run to the Owl House for take out. Why didn’t I get dinner? Because I had the dumb idea earlier to make cookies and I was full (but that didn’t [...]
