Stuffed Summer Squash Blossoms

Saturdays are meant for Farmers’ Market. It’s just a simple fact. I love year-round Farmers’ Markets, but you can’t beat the produce available this time of year. I attend my local market religiously. Doing so has been a great way for me to really get to know my farmers. I always buy the same produce off the same farmers. Nothing beats a Gritt’s tomato. La Ja has the ripest blackberries. The past two Saturdays I’ve gotten to know a new (to me) farmer. Her table set up caught my eye because she had one bag of sunflower sprouts out for purchase and one she was snacking on. We immediately got to talking about nutrition. It’s rare to find someone who grows microgreens in my area. Likewise, it’s rare for a farmer to find someone who already knows about microgreens. This past weekend I visited her again hopeful to find some […]

June 2017 Favorites

  Can I just say how glad I am June is over. GIRL, it’s a been month for me. It’s been a pretty exciting month with lots of great, happy things happening. But ya girl needs a break. My cousin Nick graduated from high school, turned 18, and had his parties for both. My cousin Michaela had her bridal shower, bachelorette party, rehearsal dinner, and wedding. My stepdad had his birthday and we had dinner at our place for him and my mom. There was father’s day to celebrate with my stepdad and dad. We celebrated my friend’s birthday with a night out for dinner and drinks. That may not sound like much to some, but to an introvert (sometimes carefully disguised as an extrovert), IT’S A LOT. Oh, and we moved. Which meant all free time was spent packing, cleaning our old place and our new place. Now we’re […]

Influenster Daisy VoxBox

Have y’all heard of Influenster yet? Because you need to get yourself an account right now. Like… Right. Now. I started seeing some friends get boxes of completely free stuff and posting about it online. After I saw all the goodies my friends were getting I immediately messaged a friend and asked her how she was getting all this stuff. Best believe I created an account. It didn’t take long at all to get my first box completely free! This is my second box of completely free products and I’m excited to share this one with you guys!   Nature’s Bounty Probiotic Fruit Gummies—Retail value of $22.35 This was probably Aaron’s favorite product we received. I’m all about gut health and I’m slowly turning Aaron that way too. Poor guy probably hears me go on about gut health at least one time a day. I’ve always tried to eat a […]

What I Ate Wednesday #2

It’s time for another What I Ate Wednesday! I missed last Wednesday because I was out of clinic doing vendor visits for Putnam County grocers. So if you saw a crazy curly haired girl running around the produce area grabbing them all and scanning them with her phone, it was ya girl. Let’s be real…I’m always that girl running crazy through the produce section because it’s my favorite thing. Work just gave me an excuse to spend some time doing what I love. Man, I’m really going to miss this job when I start my internship. Over the past 1.5-ish years I’ve really fallen in love with WIC. Luckily I’ll get to do a short internship rotation at my current job and dabble a bit more in other areas of community nutrition.¬†I can confidently say I love community nutrition and this is where I belong. Tuesday I did my grocery […]

May 2017 Favorites

It’s crazy to think May is officially over. I feel like it’s still 2016. How are we basically halfway through 2017?? June is going to be a very busy month. Ugh. I hate the word busy.¬†Everyone is so busy these days. I use to strive to stay busy, thinking it was a sign I was doing everything right. Now the word just makes me roll my eyes. It seems like we think we need to be busy. Especially my generation. Or maybe the world just wants us to think we have to be busy. Idk. It’s funny how much weight the word busy can hold. It can be an insult, a brag, or even an excuse. Busy just has such a negative connotation for me–which is exactly the opposite outlook I want on next month (or my life). So let me reword all that…June is going to be very demanding […]
