Whole 30 Day 5

Whole 30 Day 5

Yesterday I felt good, but today I feel really great! As I look back, I realize I felt a little lethargic my first 3 days of Whole 30 and I’m quite sure if it was the diet change…not a lot was changing except no butter, […]

Whole 30 Day 3

Whole 30 Day 3

The semester has picked up for me, so I have been hard at work…except for spending the weekend camping in northern Florida. I am no camping expert whatsoever, so this whole weekend was a new experience for me. Of course, the wilds of Florida were […]

Terriyaki Udon with Beef and Vegetables

Terriyaki Udon with Beef and Vegetables

After a very stressful day last week, the only thing I could think about while I was biking home was how much I needed carbs and beef to get over the day. Once I surveyed the cabinet, I settled on udon noodles for the carb […]

Spaghetti with Lemon, Broccoli, and Ricotta Salata

When I was at Fresh Market earlier this week, I finally remembered to purchase some ricotta salata. I’ve wanted to try this cheese for quite some time. Of all the fancy cheeses at Fresh Market, this one was definitely in my budget. Ricotta salata is […]
