This morning, I was not in the mood for any of my typical breakfasts. Eggs and toast – bleh, savory oatmeal – too hot, a protein smoothie – not filling enough, a greek yogurt bowl – lame… I wanted something new and exciting! But still satisfying, delicious, and healthy. I peered in the fridge. … More Perfect Paleo Pancakes
Day 3: Day three was a success as far as the detox went. My headaches were still present, but more of a dull humming rather than an opera of cracked out hyenas. ……… I didn’t have any coffee, dairy, refined sugar or wheat, but my food was fugly. I was rushing around all day going … More Detox: Day 3-5. Conquering of the migraines!
The detox today was quite the success! I woke up and decided to forgo my usual coffee. I do not think that coffee is “bad for you” because we learned in Food Science that the effect that coffee has on our heath depends on our genetics. People who are fast metabolizers of caffeine (AKA can … More Detox: Day 1
Happy 4th of July weekend everyone! The week really flew by. Between classes, my internship, and being a Yes Woman, I feel like I have hardly sat down in the last 6 or so days. My internship at the fertility center has gotten much more stimulating lately. Even my busy work was fun this week. … More Fresh recipes for summer!
I have my final final today for the quarter at 1pm. I will then rush on over to my internship until 5, maybe (but doubtfully) squeeze in a quick run or something, and then get ready for the celebratory festivities of the night! I am quite excited. Perhaps a little of this… Little of that?.. … More The breakfast pizza to end all breakfast pizzas.
I have so many foodie pictures and recipes from this week that they are taking over my desktop! Probably because all I have done this week is cook yummy food, study for finals, work out a bit, and go to my internship. Yesterday was a breakthrough day for me at the fertility center. I got … More Its vegan? Throw some chicken on it.
I have an obsession with all things vanilla bean. Vanilla bean gelato. Vanilla bean yogurt. Vanilla bean creme brulee. Cake. Oatmeal. Pudding. Vanilla bean infused buerre blanc. (Yes, I have had it, and it was too good for this Earth.) I also have phases of being obsessed with tahini. I love how rich and savory … More I invented a cookie.
Happy Saturday everyone! The week really flew by. Between class, lab, internship, meetings, baking up a storm, and my car breaking down, I finally feel like I can breathe again! The car issue was pretty embarrassing. It has been making screeching noises for months now, but I haven’t quite had the time to take it … More Whole wheat pasta and shrimp tossed with wasabi sweet potato & ginger sauce
Good morning! The title of this post refers to an idea I had this week for the blog. Last week and over the weekend, I had to keep track of everything I ate and drank for my nutrition class. On Monday during our lab, we input all the data into a computer system and had … More Spotlight on: Vitamin D!
Last night, I went on a baking binge. I made a cookie recipe that I have been eyeing for a while. I made banana pudding because I have gotten several banana recipe requests lately. And I made whole wheat avocado bread. To. Die. For. All of the things I made were tasty and will eventually … More Whole Wheat + Avocado Bread = amazing.
