I typically don’t like to buy low-cal ice cream (Halo Top, Arctic Zero, Enlightened, etc.) Reason number one being it’s not really that good. Every time I have gotten it it’s rather icy and flavorless. If I’m going to eat ice cream I want the real stuff no hold on the...

People ask me all the time what “I’m doing” in regards to my nutrition. If you had asked me a year ago I would have said “I’m tracking macros” as I pulled out MyFitnessPal to track that one nibble of a banana I just ate. Ask me two years ago and I would have said “Oh,...

I’m a creature of habit—such a creature of habit that I often go a full week eating the exact same thing for dinner without ever really noticing or caring. I get stuck in a rut with what tastes super good and don’t change it up until I get absolutely sick of it. I thin...

This week, Derek and I are leaving for vacation to Chattanooga, TN with my family. This will be our second time going to Chattanooga and we’re both so excited—it’s really the perfect vacation spot for us as it is named one of the best outdoor cities in the world and ho...

I love snacking! In the morning, in the afternoon, and in the evening I make sure I am always locked and loaded with a couple good snacks. I take the extra precaution to always be ready with food because you really don’t want to be around me when I get hungry…My favori...

Oatmeal is my all-time favorite. Growing up, my dad would make big batches with brown sugar and cinnamon before weekend soccer games and I would load my bowl with even more brown sugar and bananas--keeping me full and energized throughout my entire soccer game. As I ha...

I have done a lot of experimentation with my diet and the different foods that I put in my body. There have been a lot of ups and certainly many downs (as I’ve mentioned in previous posts, if you haven’t read them go read!) and while some of those theories I tested out...

I can't think of anything worse than dry and tasteless meat...I mean really. Nothing is worse to me than a sad dry chicken breast with absolutely no flavor. And trust me, I had my time of being scared of anything that added flavor: salt, honey, sauces, dressings, oil,...
