Al Fresco Lunching

Good afternoon! I’m back in Chapel Hill and working to get caught up on all the class-related stuff I missed this week while I was in DC with my family. Lots of recorded lectures to listen to and an assignment due tomorrow! After class this morning, I came home to make an early lunch. Earlier this week, I whipped up a Middle Eastern-inspired Continue Reading …

Packed Lunch Idea: Salad Burrito!

Yesterday marked the return of the five minute packed lunch! I know you’re pumped. Don’t lie. (pssst: Missed my previous 5 Minute Packed Lunch posts? You can find them on my recipe page!) I made one of my absolute favorites yesterday — what I call a “salad burrito.” Basically what they called a burrito bowl at Chipotle but more Continue Reading …

Back to the Grind

Hello friends! I can hardly believe that yesterday was the first day of fall semester here at UNC and the start of my second year of grad school! Before class, I began my day with an early morning swim with my friend Lindsey. 45 minute swim — check! I decided to dedicate breakfast to the cooler fall-esque weather we were having and busted Continue Reading …

Yoga at Tranquil Space & Dinner at Cafe Green

Last night, I went to my very first D.C. yoga studio! I had plans to meet the lovely Gena for dinner at 7 — she came on gchat around 4:30 and asked if we could meet a little earlier since she wanted to go to a yoga class right nearby that let out at 6:30. Even better — I’ll just join you for the yoga class, too! 30 minutes later I was Continue Reading …

How to Eat Healthy on a Road Trip

Yesterday, during me and Matt’s 8 hour drive from Bald Head Island to D.C., I was bemoaning the fact that America makes it so hard for people to eat healthy while on the road. On the way to the beach on Friday, I had packed us some food, but coming back yesterday, we had to rely solely on the road. Mile after mile went by with only the standards. Continue Reading …

Healthy Mashed Potatoes Recipe

Last night, I decided to get creative. Post-wisdom teeth Matt was in need of something soft and nutritious but tasty for dinner. Enter: Healthy Mashed Potatoes! These taste like normal mashed potatoes, but there are a few secret ingredients. :) Not only is the nutrition amped up with equal parts mashed cauliflower (you seriously don’t even Continue Reading …

Garden-to-Table Lunch at My Internship

Hello friends! It’s been a crazy busy past week. On Friday, my co-intern and I had our last day at the Alamance County location of our dietetic internship! We’ve been between two of the Cooperative Extension offices all summer; we have our last day on Wednesday at the other office. Around 10:30 a.m., we were surprised to see staff coming in Continue Reading …

Roasted Marinated Pork Tenderloin Recipe

One of the resounding favorites (among both kids AND adults) from the kid’s cooking classes we taught last week was a Roasted Marinated Pork Tenderloin. It was so good, juicy, and flavorful — I just have to share the recipe.  Pork tenderloin is one of my dinner favorites, but I don’t like buying the pre-marinated tenderloins because Continue Reading …
