wiaw+fall+into+good+habits+button

The other day, I was thinking about how I ate in college, and how different it is from what I eat now. I was very "healthy" in college... meaning I lived off of 100 calorie pack snacks, and low fat Pasta-Roni. From a calorie counting perspective, I … [Continue reading]

Mark’s [5-ingredient] Guacamole

super-easy-guacamole

First of all, meet my brother: I wouldn't say he's a health food advocate (ok, not really at all. Although his wife does keep him in line.) but when our family got together, he announced he'd be making his "world famous guacamole" for us. … [Continue reading]

Summer Favorites

I don't know about you, but to me, Labor Day fees like the official end of summer. I'm not sure where it went, but I must say, it's been full of adventures with great friends, so what more can you ask for? Maybe a few delicious recipes as … [Continue reading]

Avocado Egg Cups

I have a fat loaded recipe for you today. Which really isn't my kind of thing. (I'm more of a carb-oholic.) I don't really have trouble passing on most high-fat things. But this recipe is, well, kind of awesome. And at least some of the fat is … [Continue reading]

Getting In The Greens

I haven't been hitting the grocery store as often as normal, so I ran out of greens on Sunday, and wasn't able to make it to the grocery store until last night. The lack of fresh produce and veggies meant that I was eating a lot of smoothies and … [Continue reading]
