After two heart breaking losses in the Super Bowl, the Patriots finally came back to reclaim the title as the best team in the NFL. If I didn’t live in Boston, I probably wouldn’t mention the Super Bowl but I do… so I am as it pertains to food and fitness. Holy shit, that game […]

What I Got For Christmas & My “Staycation”

Things I miss about college include living next door to my girlfriends, swapping clothes with my girlfriends, having the energy to go out hard 3-4 nights a week and having absolutely nothing to do during vacation breaks.  I am not complaining but when you work for yourself you do not have time off, especially paid […]

Summer Dessert: Smooth Cacao Chia Pudding, Vegan & Sugar Free

What I ate on Sunday!

It can easily be made […]

Whole Foods Haul! Coconut Butter Benefits too

This morning I made the mistake of putting a teaspoon of coconut butter on my protein pancakes. Why was this a mistake? It was so freaking good, I wanted to use it as frosting all over them! I’ve heard coconut butter aids in weight loss so maybe I should… Whole Foods invited me to a […]

That Shoot Next Week…

So I’ve begun the photoshoot prep for my book next week! Last Thursday, my friend Cate asked me and Rebecca to grab coffee after a spin class. She suggested the 6:30 am on Wednesday to which Rebecca agreed. I am not an early riser but knew I’d be able to do it with the added motivation […]
