Soooo...I flew to California to stay with my…

foodie fridays

While traveling with Boyfriend, I wanted to bring some of my own food so I didn't stray too far from my eating habits. While I did indulge a little, it was nice having healthy options to eat. Those rice packets are delicious, and the rice cakes with almond butter are a yummy treat. There are w…

hemp seed

There is a new seed in town, or at least my town. As a big fan of flaxseed and chia seed, this is a new favorite. It's got a great taste and loads of benefits. I've been putting them in my smoothies and on top of my oatmeal. Try it out!

bitch camp

The gals and I had been planning a camping trip, and finally went this past weekend. We dubbed the trip, "Bitch Camp." It was a blast! We brought a ton of food, beer, and funny games. We even got our tents up...after a few attempts. We went hiking to some waterfalls, cooked hot dogs and s…

"Anorexic!"
"Too skinny!"
"Ew."
"Eat something." 

It s…
