Chopped Greek Salad for the Beach

I’m on vacation this week and have a guest post for you guys from Ally Milligan, a Boston-based multimedia producer and salad-obsessive at Loveleaf Co., a site encouraging health and mindfulness through the simple habit of eating one salad a day. See how easy it is to incorporate this healthy practice into your life by […]

Why the Washington Post says ‘Meat is Horrible’

“Meat is horrible.” That was the headline I saw all weekend on my iPhone News shortcuts screen. It was dated July 3rd but yet it remained well past that date for a couple of days. I found this odd since the headlines traditionally change hourly. Did Apple really want me to read this article? So, […]

My 5 Go To Breakfasts As a New Mom

I can remember having a 100 calorie English muffin for breakfast with spray butter at 22 years of age. Oh how the times have changed. My breakfasts are now at least 250 calories and made up of nutrient dense foods. Still breastfeeding Tommy in the middle of the night, I wake up starving! On top […]

The Body Nourishing Mama Smoothie

I’m lucky that I enjoy how most healthy foods taste but there are a few that I detest. One of them is turmeric. Unfortunately for me, it is traditionally used by breastfeeding women. One of my favorite ways to mask the flavor of turmeric is in smoothies. I created this smoothie recipe to help nourish […]

This Week In Dinners So Far…

This week, we ordered dinner from Just Add Cooking. I chose a chicken, fish and vegetarian option. The vegetarian option was actually a soup created by Boston chef Jeremy Sewall, who owns two of my favorite restaurants in the city, Row 24 and Island Creek Oyster Bar. He has another recipe featured for this week’s […]

Vegan Salted Caramel Smoothie Recipe

I was always a caramel person over hot fudge. When salted caramel desserts became a thing, I was obsessed with all of them. Why is it that adding just a little bit of salt made caramel so much cooler? I’m not sure why I waited so long to make a healthy salted caramel treat but […]

I Missed This The Most + Just Add Cooking Discount Code

During Tommy’s first month, Nick and family took over the role of making dinner. I never imagined how much I would miss this simple chore. I’ve always been the cook and Nick the cleaner. I hate cleaning and now I felt like it was my responsibility. It wasn’t but I just felt bad sitting on […]

Half Marathon Training Update + My Long Run Breakfast Recipe Video

Last week, I went to two different classes that had child care for little ones like Tommy. It was awesome but that means, I wasn’t running. Since I either need to wake up before Nick goes to work (and pump before I leave) and run in the dark or go after work when it’s time […]

New England Sweet & Spicy Trail Mix with Harvest Snaps

There are so many movies I want to see thanks to the Oscars! Luckily for my sake, most are going to be out on DVD or On Demand pretty soon. My chances of getting to a movie theater are slim to none these days. Included on my short list are Joy, The Big Short, Concussion, […]
