I’m chugging along, folks. At the beginning of the month, I was down four pounds, but then the other day, I was up five. Losing weight isn’t easy, but I’m not giving up!
That’s a post-workout selfie from this morning. I’ve had a very healthy weekend. I took that picture at my gym after using the Read the rest of this entry »

I’ve been seeing whole, fresh vegetables being sold as snacks lately, and I hope it’s a trend that takes off! I’m not talking about snack chips that use a little cauliflower or spinach powder in them, I’m talking about unadulterated vegetables… in snack form!
I found these Poshi vegetable pouches at the store before the lockdown began, but didn’t Read the rest of this entry »

I made a fantastic dinner the other night, and I used two components I’d never used before! Say hello to my Shrimp and Veggie Pesto Pasta!
But first, I want to brag really quickly, because I’m proud of how active I’ve been during this lockdown. I Read the rest of this entry »

That’s a 15-ounce bag of riced broccoli from Read the rest of this entry »

You know how you sometimes find things buried deep in your cupboard or pantry, and you don’t remember when you bought them, or why? I had one of those moments the other night, when I was looking for something else and stumbled across a can of… turnip greens.
I have no memories of buying this. Don’t know where it came from, how much I paid, or what I was going to do with it. Read the rest of this entry »

I got a new kitchen tool – a masher – and this is the healthy, delicious recipe where I used it for the very first time!
Low-Carb Pancake Roll-ups are perfect for brunch. They’re great for other meals, too, and particularly versatile, because they’re a finger food, and everyone loves finger food. And what makes them low-carb? I’m glad you asked. Read the rest of this entry »

I’m always on the hunt for new snack ideas. Fresh vegetables are a tried-and-true mainstay in my snack game, but fresh vegetables aren’t always available, and sometimes they don’t travel well.
There are lots of veggie-based snacks at the store, but many fall into a category that’s a pet peeve of mine, where they’re labeled as Read the rest of this entry »

If it looks like a grain-based salad, and it tastes like a grain-based salad, it’s gotta be a grain-based salad, right?
WRONG! There’s not a single grain on that plate. I made this salad with… Read the rest of this entry »
