Nori Wraps with Avocado-Wasabi Tuna Salad

Long time, no post! I guess that’s what happens when you are trying to finish a Ph.D…your hobbies fall by the wayside. As it looks now, I will be wrapping up my dissertation soon and will be able to turn my attention back to more […]

Farmers Market Finds

Farmers Market Finds

Finally, the town I live in is starting to have a more active Farmers Market. I have been trying to find one since I moved here nearly 2 years ago. I went to one last summer only to find nothing being sold even though it […]

Whole 30 Day 27

Whole 30 Day 27

Day 27! Only 3 days left of Whole 30. I’ve already decided that I love the way I’m eating, and except for adding some “sensible indulgences” like dark chocolate, wine, good cheese, full-fat Greek yogurt, and bacon, it really wouldn’t phase me if I kept […]

Whole 30 Day 25

Whole 30 Day 25

Today was a fun day because my university’s graduate student council hosted a 2012 Euro Soccer party for the final match between Italy and Spain. I’ve been a fan of Italy for a really long time, so of course I wanted to go. Therefore my […]

Whole 30 Day 15

Whole 30 Day 15

Halfway done! Only 15 more days left and I’ve made it through this Whole 30 challenge. I think challenge is an overstatement for me because I didn’t really change my eating too much, but I did become more conscious of my eating, which is never […]

Whole 30 Day 14

Whole 30 Day 14

Last night I listened to my body when it said “go to bed early,” so I woke up feeling really refreshed this morning. It was exactly what I needed. I was pretty hungry for breakfast, too, so I made a nice big meal of 2 […]

Whole 30 Day 11

Whole 30 Day 11

 For breakfast this morning, I chopped up one of my leftover mini hamburgers and mixed it into two scrambled eggs. I topped it with pico de gallo and had a little homemade applesauce on the side. Of course I had some black coffee to get […]

Whole 30 Day 10

Whole 30 Day 10

I’m officially one-third of the way through Whole 30! This morning I woke up well before my normal alarm clock would go off. There’s something about waking up on your own that really sets you up for a good day. I had a big breakfast […]
