For as long as I can remember, I’ve worn the same 3 pieces (or sets) of jewelry. My wedding rings, a pair of opal earrings, and a locket my husband gave me for our first Valentine’s Day that was his grandmother’s.
It’s not that I don’t like jewelry. I do. And truth be told, I’ve always wanted to be one of those girls who has the unique jewelry that perfectly accents each of her outfits. But I’m not, and I’ve finally come to terms with that because I’ve realized one thing… Continue reading
If you’ve been around here very long, you know that nutrition is something I’ve struggled with for a long time…Before I was expecting my daughter, I’m not sure actual “nutrition” was even on my radar.
Sure, I had read all of the weight loss magazines and blogs about how to eat healthier and lose weight. But for me, it was always about that last piece – what I could do to lose weight.
You see, in middle and high school, I struggled with disordered eating, and while I was able to work through it with the support of my family and an effective workout plan and eating guide, I never really established a healthy relationship with food. I viewed it more as a means to an end rather than a life-giving substance.
But after the birth of my daughter, all of that changed. I knew I needed to learn and do better, not just for me but for her. I knew I needed to learn what nutrition actually looked and felt like so I could (1.) provide her with the nutrition she needed and (2.) help her develop a better understanding of and relationship with food than I had growing up.
I’m all about fresh fruit most of the time, but every once in a while (like while I’m Whole30ing), I just like to switch it up a bit! This Warm Apple Salad is THE perfect way to do that!
When I decided to commit to doing the Whole30, I knew I’d need easy options that weren’t much more complex than our typical go-tos. So a breakfast frittata was pretty much a no brainer.
Okay, so I seriously contemplated switching out the name of this recipe because I know what you’re thinking…Black beans? In my brownies? Ewww!
And honestly, about a week ago, I was right there with you, but for some reason, I was having a hankering for some rich, fudgy brownies. But I’ve been doing a lot better with staying on track with my nutrition and didn’t want to just give in to the traditional “treat,” so I decided to get a little creative.
