my first video!

Good morning, and happy Wednesday!

Side note – I can never decide if I love or hate the phrase “happy [insert day of the week].” When did that even become a thing…?

So yes, you read that right – you’re about to watch me in all of my low quality (for now), YouTube-in’ glory. You’ve

#LEAN14: vegan & gluten free cookie dough for one.

I’m a sucker for single serving recipes.

…especially when they include two of the best words in the English language: COOKIE. DOUGH.

Needless to say, when I saw this healthier single serving recipe for vegan cookie dough on Pinterest, I knew it was one I had to try.

I made some changes to that

Let’s just put this out on the table. I kind of hate myself for how obnoxious my new phone cover is.

My “closet” is slowly but surely starting to look a bit more spring-like too.

The norm.

I could get the (create your own) market vegetable plate from Westville every single day.

Hi hi, happy Saturday!

So I usually try to keep weekend posts pretty lighthearted, but there’s something I’ve been wanted to address lately. I’m assuming the title of this post gave it away…

I’ve gotten a bit of flack recently for posting sponsored content, so I wanted to address the topic straight up. I’m not

Kale and Quinoa Minestrone

Yesterday I made a big batch of delicious Kale and Quinoa Minestrone. Since the Northeast is apparently refusing to leave winter, I figured I’d at least embrace one last chance to make a big comforting meal.

This recipe is a great one – definitely recommended.

I also went through piles and piles of

Easy Butternut Squash Soup

After a long day at the office or running around on meetings, there’s nothing better than a relaxing evening at home, complete with a comforting meal. I don’t know about you, but a big bowl of soup is just about as comforting as it gets.

The other day I came home after a snowy, work-filled

Apparently you guys enjoy the all over the place posts, so I guess I’ll keep ‘em coming!

(I like them too – they remind me of what makes blogging such a fun outlet.)

Let’s see…

1) I’ve started using Twitter again. Sort of. I’m trying to, at least. I didn’t really think anyone still used

#LEAN14: those famous 2 ingredient cookies.

2 Ingredient Healthy Cookies

Back in February I made 3 Ingredient Banana Bread Cookies, inspired by these famous 2 ingredient cookies. I’ve seen the super short recipe for these cookies ALL over Pinterest, so I figured it must be a good one!

I’ll be honest – I thought that these would at least be a decent healthy cookie alternative,

hello spring


Time to bring out the open-toe shoes.

After the horrendous winter, the onset of spring definitely called for celebration.

I’m a sucker for a good candlelit dinner.

The parts I was waiting for for the new Speakable collection FINALLY arrived!

More veggie bowls have been happening. This one with

#LEAN14: “nothin’ fancy” HIIT workout.


Back in December I shared my go-to HIIT treadmill workout. It’s a great one that I still do often!

Sometimes, though, I need my workouts to be as basic as possible in order for me to actual exercise at all. While my last HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) workout varied throughout 3 speeds, this super
