IMG_6400

Morning! I made one of my favorite easy dinners last night. Have you guys tried this yet? It’s so good and there are a ton of variations you can do! Just take some raw chicken breasts (tofu or a white fish would work too!), toss them in a cooking oil-sprayed pan, and cover them with some tomato sauce. (I usually use Muir Glen’s organic Continue Reading …

Hi friends! Exciting news: I’m officially belay certified, which means I am approved to safely indoor rock climb with others. :) As I mentioned, Matt and I took an intro to climbing course a couple weeks ago and on Friday night, I went back to the gym and took the belay test (Matt is going to take his soon – he was out of town). I passed – Continue Reading …

Morning, my friends! It’s Friday, Friday Fridayyyy… and I started my morning with a little 6 a.m. Crossfit. So good to get up and get it done!

Hitting the Ground Running

IMG_3040

Gooooooooooooooood morning! Dragging my butt out of bed this morning to run was well worth it for this: As I always say, waking up early to run sucks big time when that alarm goes off, but just remember how awesome you’ll feel when you’re out there/done. :) That, and having someone to meet really helps!

Hi friends! As I mentioned, I spent this past week out in California on a sponsored press trip with the Almond Board of California. I was joined on the trip by a group of media-savvy dietitians and nutrition bloggers, and as always on these sort of trips I loved seeing friends (I’m hanging with my buddy Brittany in the picture below) and Continue Reading …

Switzerland Finale

Welcome to the finale of my Europe adventures! After a wonderful day of hiking near Lucerne, Switzerland, the second to last day of my trip began on a ferry. My friend Melli and I took the ferry from Vitznau to Lucerne, which was about an hour, so we could explore the city. It was more fun than driving! :) Continue Reading …

From Geneva, I was back on the train for the final leg of my European adventure: meeting up with my German friend Melli for some hiking near Lucerne! Melli and I first met when we were randomly flatmates while both living in Prague back in 2009. We’ve been good friends ever since – she even came to our wedding all the way from Germany! She Continue Reading …
