Since my half marathon is only a few weeks away, I have to do a long run today. Dr. P is on call. Which means two things: I’ll run with the Baby Bee in tow. And Vanilla Cardamom Berry Porridge. Aside: It also means I’m rewarding myself by getting a babysitter and having a night… Read More Vanilla cardamom berry porridge and the benefits of oatmeal

Sometimes you just need some green in your life. Like when Dr. P and I stayed in Midtown Manhattan with Lady for a week. I was just dying for some greenery by the end of the trip!

Savory kale quesadilla, quick HIIT home workout, and a great home date night idea

Kale. It’s so hot right now. And arguably the heathiest food in the solar system- unless Elon Musk’s Tesla robot identifies a new form of greenery on Mars, there are few foods that can surpass it in nutrient density.

Vegan Buffalo Chicken Salad with Vegan Ranch

The great grocery store debacle, eating on a budget, and vegan fruit sandwiches

I’ve been counseling people on how to eat right on a budget for the better part of a decade, but life gets busy, yo. I don’t always follow my own advice.

Healthy mac and cheese, a maqui powder mistake, and pregnancy cravings

At the risk of sounding like a 4th grader’s diary entry- soo much has happened since I last wrote! I’ve had a few months of brain-space-otherwise-occupied. Here are the highlights: We got pregnant. I got laid off. I started another full time dietitian  job (first day was today!) I began a part-time private practice. I chopped my hair… Read More Healthy mac and cheese, a maqui powder mistake, and pregnancy cravings

Vegan + gluten free banana peanut butter muffins

Two things are on my mind after this weekend- babies and muffins. Such a girly combo, right? Dr. P and I finally had the chance to hop the 2 hours south to meet our best friends’ 1-month old baby, J. J is adooorrable! We are heels above head, totally in love. And our friends are doing an amazing… Read More Vegan + gluten free banana peanut butter muffins
