What I Ate Wednesday: Thursday Edition, 21 Day Fix with Paleo Meals (4/7/16)

On Wednesday I was standing in the vineyard and realized I forgot to take a picture of my breakfast for my What I Ate Wednesday post. D’oh! So I figured it wasn’t a big deal, I’ll just track my meals on Thursday. It would be […]

The holidays come so early in the winter season, with all their bright lights, but then they’re over in a flash and we’ve got the rest of the cold, dark winter to contend with. In the attempt to retain some brightness, I did a makeover […]

Savory Roasted Root Vegetable Hash

I didn’t realize it had been since February since I last posted. I’ve made many changes in my life, mainly taking a new job in California and thus finished my cross-country move that was 7 years in the making. I’d set an intention to move […]

Whole 30 Day 29

Only one day left of Whole 30! It doesn’t really feel like it’s the end, however, because now I feel like I have some newly-established habits. I’m looking forward to my final weigh-in, measurements, and comparing my before and after photos. I really want to […]
