Trying New Things

Trying New Things

I haven’t posted much since my Whole 30 finished. I have been really busy with work, but I have also been using my time to try new things. Even though one challenge is over, I wanted to try and challenge myself in the next 30 […]

Whole 30 Day 22

Whole 30 Day 22

Today was another long day at work. I ended one of my summer experiments, so that’s a huge relief. I planned a social for the grad students in my department, so I got off work a little later than planned then rushed home and got […]

Whole 30 Day 21

Whole 30 Day 21

I can’t believe I only have about week left of Whole 30! I forgot to post this the other day, but over the weekend I went and got a couple pairs of inexpensive shorts from Forever 21 because my shorts were looking so baggy that […]

One-Skillet Pork Chop Dinner with Sauteed Cabbage, Apples, and Onions

The only time I get to exercise is after work, so by the time I come home I am super hungry. I usually have the foresight to put something in the crockpot in the morning, but sometimes I fail at that and end up kicking […]

Braised Cabbage with Ham

Braised Cabbage with Ham

Last night I had dinner with some friends at a local pizza place. We got onto the topic of conversation of America’s perception of Italian cuisine. We discussed how one popular Italian chain restaurant (that I would like to remain nameless) makes traditional dishes that […]
