First Try at Once a Week Cooking

First Try at Once a Week Cooking

In an attempt to make my last full week of classes before Thanksgiving break easier, I tried a new tactic for meal prep. It’s called once a week cooking, and it is what it sounds like: you set aside a couple hours over the weekend […]

Whole 30 Day 30

Whole 30 Day 30

Today’s the last day of my Whole 30. It’s hard to call it a “last day” because I can choose to continue to eat like this, so it’s hardly an end. Actually, it’s a nice template for me to use in the future. I’ve tested […]

Beef Taco Salad with Avocado-Cilantro-Lime Dressing

I’m so excited about the fact that my local Sprouts market started carrying grass-fed beef! It does cost a little more, however several articles, including one from Mark’s Daily Apple have helped me to realize that grass-fed beef is more healthful. The reason why it […]

Paleo Tilapia Tacos

Since coming home, I have been doing so much cooking, which has made me so happy! It’s nice to take a little break and do those activities that make me really happy. One recipe I prepared this week was a variation from The Paleo Diet […]
