Pan-Fried Brussels Sprouts with Pancetta

Hello my long lost friends! I’m sorry I’ve been a bad blogger recently… life got in the way and to be honest I haven’t let that bother me! So let’s get down to business with my favorite winter vegetable. Brussels Sprouts can be kind of a devisive menu item, but […]

Cauliflower Power Smoothie

Yup, I said cauliflower + smoothie. You may have noticed this recent health craze. Everyone has been on the green smoothie train for years now, but even though you’re getting nutrients from the spinach and fruit, if you load your smoothies with fruit, you end up eating a lot of […]

Matcha Power Latte

Who else is obsessed with matcha? I think my obsession started with Starbucks green tea frappuccinos, which are not real matcha at all, but somewhat close. I’ve never been a coffee drinker, but needed an excuse to get a drink from Starbucks as a teenage girl, so I tried the […]

Blogger Brunch + A Summer Salad Recipe

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen an over-the-top brunch I attended a while back at The Barn at Springhouse.

Whole 30 “Ice Cream” Bites

So I made it about 20 days on Whole 30 back in January, and while it was miserably hard, I did feel so much better following it. My stomach really is so much happier when I eat dairy and gluten-free, but it’s so hard! I really love carbs. And cheese. […]

Avocado Feta Dip

Who’s pumped for Super Sunday? I love me some football, but TBH the NFL doesn’t do anything for me. I’m a college football fan all the way (and roll damn tide.) You know I’ll get behind any reason to eat though. I love Super Bowl snacking because it means lots […]

Health Kween Kale & Rice Noodle Stir Fry

Happy Thursday, friends! Sharing a relatively easy and healthy recipe with y’all today. I’m a huge Asian food lover.. Thai, Vietnamese, Chinese, sushi.. you name it. Lexington has a pretty hoppin’ food scene, but I will say we lack somewhat in the Asian food category. So, to satiate my frequent […]
