    Overnight Oats Make Ahead Breakfast

    There’s no denying that overnight oats had their “moment” on food blogs thanks to Pinterest. They’re actually how I first discovered food blogs. But I never brought myself to try them simply because I’m not a big oatmeal fan. I always hated it growing up, but over the past year or so it’s one of the foods (like tuna or black coffee) I’ve tried to train myself to like for the health benefits. I started off easing into oats by just adding a scoop to my morning or post work out protein smoothie (blueberries + oats + unsweetened almond milk + protein powder = my go to perfection). Eventually I ended…

    My Newest Summer Go-To Drink

    Between going to school full time, picking up a new job, trying to work part/full time, applying for graduation and jobs, finals, case studies, presentations, Koda, family, and friends I’ve pretty much been MIA –all for good reasons though! I normally jot down a few blog post ideas during my week and then complete them during the weekends, but I’ve been so busy my list has just kept growing and growing. Good news for you all though! I’ll have a TON of new posts coming soon! I feel like right now is crunch time for everyone.  Everyone’s scrambling to get things together and prepare for summer.  Even if it’s not…

    Banana Zucchini Chocolate Chip Muffins

    Has it really been almost a month since my last real blog post?  I keep trying out all these new meals and thinking how perfect they’d be for the blog. Problem is, when I come up with these, I’m usually just grabbing stuff from my kitchen, throwing it together, and hoping it works. Only after I’ve finished eating and the Instagram comments “blog or it didn’t happen” start rolling in I realize I didn’t write anything down or snap any other photos. Oops. Everyone seemed to really enjoy and like the concept behind make ahead breakfasts, so why not keep the people happy? These are undoubtedly my favorite ones yet. I’ve made three batches so far and still…

    Eggplant Parmesan

    It’s been a few months since I’ve adopted meatless recipes into my diet and I’m still loving it. I always enjoy playing with new recipes. The greatest trick I’ve picked up with meatless recipes is to take my favorite recipes that would typically include meat, and find a vegetable to put in its place. Super easy and I still get to satisfy my cravings. Bonus: consuming even more veggies. Chicken Parmesan is easily one of my favorite dishes (especially if it’s coming from Carrabba’s). I’ve had some of my nutrition friends tell me I’d love eggplant, so I had to give eggplant Parmesan a try. I have to say, it…

    Make Ahead Baked Oatmeal To-Go

    My mornings are always hectic (which, makes sense considering my entire life is usually hectic).  However, I didn’t know hectic mornings until I had to start waking up at 3:00AM for work recently.  And to think, I thought trying to cook a breakfast at 7:00AM was hard… Luckily I anticipated this struggle and took advantage of Sunday to do some meal prep. I loved the concept behind my make ahead breakfast wraps, but I don’t love eating the same thing every morning. I decided to add some variety to my fridge with these make ahead baked oatmeal to-go. What you’ll need: 3 eggs, ¼ cup EVOO, 1 cup packed brown…
