My favorites for health & well-being

I was compiling a list of some of my favorite things this month and realized they were taking on a theme- they were all green. I’ll chalk it up to the fact that I’ve been spending a lot more time outside lately. Green is a soothing color for many,...

Low-Sugar Coffee Drinks

I don’t know what it is, but every time I finish a workout the first thing I crave is a coffee. I don’t want to erase all the work I just did by loading up on a high-calorie, sugary drink, but I like drinking “fun drinks” in the afternoon....

Death before decaf? My year without caffeine

My first and all-time favorite job was working as a barista at a local coffee shop. However this job included two stipulations- 1. I was destined to be a coffee snob forever and 2. I would become addicted to coffee. I could drink two shots of espresso at 9...

My Last Ten

I thought it would be fun to go through my camera roll and find the last 10 food photos I’ve captured. I only take pictures of food if there is a special memory associated or it is a recipe I want to remember. These are some of my all-time...

Runner’s Club

I’ve been running for years. Well… I’ve been running up to one mile for years. When I went off to college and no longer had dance or soccer practice to release my energy, I had to find something. I was an avid gym member, but never seemed to push...
