Wrapping Up Summer 2015

Let’s take a moment and try to find out where summer went. Seriously, I can’t find it. I can’t believe this summer is coming to a close 😦  It just went by in a heartbeat. I took full advantage of this summer as my “last summer being a kid”. I turn 18 on August 14th…

Protein Cheesecake

  (Snickerdoodle procheesecake with peanut butter & cinnamon toast crunch) I’ve gotten a lot of people asking me about this one so I’ll share what I did to recreate the famous “procheesecake” recipe. There several ways I have seen this done and with a little tweaking here and there, this one recipe turned out a…

What Makes Recovery So Damn Hard

You are walking down the street. You notice a billboard that reads “Shred 20 pounds in just 2 weeks”. You keep walking because it’s just another sign. You decide to grab a bite to eat. Nutrition facts and “healthier alternatives” are listed. You obviously don’t want to be the one that chooses the “unhealthy” item…

Warm Oatcake

This is a bit of a change up from my usual cold oatcake. Sometimes some warm oats sound good and this came out like a cake! Not dry, doesn’t deflate, and no flour(for those gluten intolerant humans)! Recipe: 1/2 cup oats 2 T greek yogurt 1/3 cup egg whites 1/2 scoop protein powder  A little…

Half Baked Review

Oh sweet Ben and Jerry’s. My 2 home boys. No, really. They are the real deal. I like to cozy up with a good ole pint now and again to end my nights. To be honest, now that I am so close to being at my “healthy weight” it’s been a little more difficult for…

Thinking Out Loud: Recovery Collage

Thursdays are meant for Thinking Out Loud! So get ready for a lot of nonsense 😉 This week I have felt really drained and sleepy. I have NO idea why this is. Usually, I am the one that goes and goes all day but I haven’t felt that motivated or full of energy. I’ve felt…

WIAW 7/22/15

HOLA! You all ready to see some noms? I thought I would share what I ate on Sunday because I remembered to take pictures of everything. Brekkie: This was the day of barely any food in the house. The night before I made overnight oats because we still had oats and I layered it with…

Peanut Butter Muffins

    Ever get a strong craving for a muffin? I don’t know where it came from but one day I really wanted something homemade for a snack. Peanut butter kind of always sounds good to me so things started clicking…. These muffins are moist, nutty, and perfectly sweetened with agave. I didn’t have these…

So You Want An Eating Disorder?

I am sick and tired of all the pro-anas and fitspos that encourage unhealthy behaviors through social media. They are everywhere nowadays and you can’t completely avoid them.  <—  So you want an eating disorder you say? They are pure HELL if you ask me. But since you so desperately want it, let me give…

Orthorexia: Healthy Eating Too Far

“I don’t have an eating disorder anymore. I eat food. Oh but I NEED to have veggies every day and I CANT’ eat what my parents make. Why? Because it’s not healthy enough for me. I need to eat balanced or else I don’t know what I would do” Sound familiar? Ever heard of orthorexia?…
