Homemade {Healthy} Hot Chocolate

After trying many, many times to make my own hot chocolate and utterly failing (unsweetened cocoa is bitter) I have finally found the perfect blend. Not to mention it consists of only two ingredients and no added sugar. I really encourage you to try this recipe as store bought hot chocolate “powders” are loaded with […]

First Semester Reflections.

First, I want to thank everyone for sticking with me and the blog as I transitioned through my first semester of college. I wasn’t really able to blog recipes or much of anything, but I still enjoyed writing every post I was able to. Thank YOU for hanging around. ūüôā College was great. My first […]

Gone with the Week

1. I never got around to posting about it, but for our July 4th party, I made S’mores on a Stick. Super easy and fun to make/eat. 2. When we were¬†in Colorado,¬†we came across this house covered in licence plates. It was pretty awesome. 3. A childhood favorite. On our way home from Colorado, we […]

Blogging Bloopers + A Healthy Swap

As I was chowing down on my “yay its friday” nine cups of puppy chow* last week, I was thinking how important it is to incorporate “healthier” desserts in with the indulgent ones. So, when I was looking in the pantry for what I was going to eat for dessert tonight, I made it a […]

What I Ate: Tuesday

I thought I would do a post of my eats¬†for the day for two reason. One, I always try to get back into a healthy routine after vacation and two, my breakfast was pretty awesome. An egg sandwich¬†with spinach, avocado, and tomatoes + a side of strawberries.¬†So maybe it’s not¬†that awesome to you but anytime […]

Sweet Tooth Therapy: Update #1

Experimenting with oatmeal. (More on this later) Bumping up my protein intake with nuts, nut butters, lean meats, […]

Sweet Tooth Therapy

If you haven’t noticed from my post’s lately, I have been consuming a lot of sugar. I have gone from one dessert a day to multiple desserts every day. From my daily dose of dark¬†chocolate chips, to late night bowls¬†ice cream after work, to Valentines Day goodies…I’ve been eating it all. And unfortunately, I¬†have been […]

A Day of Eats

Today I am going to show you my usual “day of eats.” I have been working on this post for a while, so I hope you like it! I have wanted to jump on the “What I Ate Wednesday” train, but unfortunately, never capture everything I eat on camera. So, I decided I would just […]

Veggie Fair

You know you’re pretty special when the Texas State Veggie Fair has been written on your calendar for months. That’s right, this past weekend my mom, oldest sister, and I headed to the veggie fair where we tried veggie, vegan, and vegetarian everything. It was glorious. We went to the 12:30, “Get Vegucated” class which […]
