High Protein Flour-Free Breakfast Pancake Recipe

IMG_6809

This high protein, flour-free breakfast pancake recipe is quick, easy, and delicious, too. It's one of my absolute favorite breakfasts - I have it at least a few times a week! The secret to this pancake? Egg and banana! It sounds gross but I promise it's good. The combination is a great way to enjoy a pancake that’s higher in Continue Reading …

Meeting Bart Yasso & Spectating the Marine Corps Marathon!

2012-10-27_08-04-24_76

Good morning! DC is all closed down getting ready for the hurricane so I’m working from home today. So far just some light wind and rain – we’ll see if it gets worse or not. I hope all of you are staying safe out there! I had a nice weekend before all this gross weather set in. On Saturday morning, my friend Theodora and I headed down to the Continue Reading …

Why Running on the Morning of My Wedding was an Awesome Idea

IMG_0510

When I awoke on the morning of our wedding, this was my view. The front portico of Rosemont Manor where Matt and I would, later that day, be married in front of our best friends and family. The plants were covered in case of a frost, and the sun was just beginning to rise into a beautiful clear sky. Thank you, weather gods, for not raining on our Continue Reading …

Happy Birthday to me! (+ a wedding planning update!)

Good morning, friends! Guess what? Today is my 30th birthday! :) It’s off to a good start — I slept in (that being a relative term here — til 7:15, haha) and Matt made me breakfast in bed before work. <3 Who else agrees that working on your birthday should be illegal, btw? I’m not sure where the time has gone — I can’t believe Continue Reading …

A number of you have asked what’s next for me on my grad school/RD journey — I’ll share more details soon, but basically I get next week off and then start my 10 week fall Continue Reading …

Gluten Free Maple Quinoa Pancakes

Morning! I promised you all the recipe for the gluten free quinoa pancakes I made on Saturday morning, so here it is! Matt and I both really enjoyed these. They aren’t huge and fluffy like buttermilk pancakes, so don’t make them expecting that, but they have great flavor and are a fun (and healthy) way to mix it up from traditional Continue Reading …

Matt’s 30th Birthday!

IMG_0071

Today is Matt’s 30th birthday! :) Yes, his shirt says “30 and Dirty.” Inspired by the shirt that my girl Elle wore to our mud run last September right after her 30th birthday! As you can imagine, by the end of the night, his shirt was completely covered in signatures and ridiculous quotes. A couple of Matt’s best guy friends and I Continue Reading …

The Breakfast Cookie

IMG_6128

Morning, friends! I decided to mix things up a little bit for breakfast this morning and finally try a Fitnessista breakfast cookie! I’ve been seeing these around the blog world for years — it was time. Her recipe for the cookie (linked above) is more of a general guideline — the point is to get creative with it, so I did! Here’s Continue Reading …
