One Pan Chicken and Veggie Bake


One-Pan Chicken & Veggie Bake

Why is it that life’s most enjoyable moments can be followed by such tedious tasks? Going to bed early followed by waking up to a shrieking alarm. Showering followed by blow drying your hair. Putting on PJs followed by brushing your teeth. Having friends over for a party followed by clean up. And, alas, cooking followed by… dishes, ugh! I love cooking! I love creating new flavors, finding healthy alternatives to my favorite treats, and seeing the smiles on my guests faces when they try my food. But I hate, absolutely hate doing the dishes. For one, it’s gross. The grease, grime, and old food particles. Ick! And, after a big meal, it can seem endless. Say sayonara to perpetual Read More

Pumpkin Pie Protein Pancakes Recipe


Pumpkin Pie Protein Pancakes

Fall is here and you know what that means… #pumpkineverything! Ladies, you know what I’m talking about. Any first sense of the season changing – a leaf falling, darker mornings, cooler evenings, Halloween decor lining the aisles at Target – and it’s a mad rush to Trade Joe’s to snag some of their organic pureed pumpkin! This year I’m setting my sights on actually carving a pumpkin and roasting the seeds inside. I promise myself every year but have yet to do it for almost half a decade. Don’t judge me! Life gets in the way. There’s been no carving yet. I have a “go big or go home” attitude about it and I won’t settle for an average jack-o-lantern. Read More

Low Carb, Paleo, Gluten Free Chicken n' Waffles featured


Paleo, Gluten-Free, Low Carb Chicken n’ Waffles!

No your eyes have not deceived you. I have deviously come up with a recipe for Chicken n’ Waffles that is low carb, high protein, paleo, gluten-free, and super yummy! One of the best things about chicken n’ waffles? It’s salty meets sweet, breakfast meets dinner, crispy meets soft, the list goes on. It satisfies a plethora of cravings. However, this high-sugar, high-fat, high-calorie dish falls short in the health category. I was inspired to make a healthier version after my week-long trip in Pinehearst and Charlotte, North Carolina where the options for fried chicken and sweets are endless. Needless to say, I took full advantage of being on vacay and ate to my hearts desire. Sometimes that meant ordering a Read More




My First Vlog – Maui, a Booty Workout, & Pancakes!

Aloha! I’m in heaven enjoying a vacation in Maui with my dad and brother. Every morning I’ve gotten up early without issue (Maui is three hours behind PST) to pump out some awesome workouts before heading out for beach time, adventures, shopping, and relaxing. All of my favorite things wrapped up into one beautiful island. More of my trip to come in later blog posts!   Funny enough, though, one of the things I’m enjoying most is the extra time I have to produce content for you guys 🙂 – starting with this vlog! Which, if any of you don’t know, stands for a “video blog.” In this vlog, you’ll get a peak inside of my morning routine here in Hawaii, Read More




Low-Carb, Crispy Cauliflower Crust Pizza Recipe

I took a rest day today and I’ve been nothing but restless! R is out of town this weekend and my friends are busy bees themselves, so I found myself without plans for the day. It’s funny how whenever I have a million things to do, from work to play, I dream about having a day to myself with nothing to do. But when it actually comes, it’s nice for the first couple of hours and then, boom, the boredom hits. A workout would’ve been a great fix for my boredom, but it’s my rest day so I sucked it up and found other ways to entertain myself sans socializing. Sometimes my rest days come naturally – I’m really sore or just don’t have Read More
