Are you a homemade granola bar person, or more of a grab-and-go from the box type? To be honest, I haven’t been the biggest granola bar person in general for most of my life – I just prefer to sit down and eat a real meal than something on the go.

But, as we all know, sometimes grab and go has got to do. For those times, I loooove having a batch of homemade granola bars on hand, and I usually have a healthy, homemade bar of some sort hanging out in my fridge or freezer for those times. [Read more…]

I’ve been on a major oatmeal kick recently! Since I did Whole30, my go-to breakfast has changed a bit. I used to eat Greek yogurt with berries and granola pretty much every single morning.

You guys probably wouldn’t believe the amount of nut butter that I go through. I’m constantly finishing jars – I’d say that nut butter is one of my main food groups.

Slathered on apples is probably the most common way I eat it, but I also devour my various nut butters with bananas, swirled into my oatmeal, dripped on a smoothie bowl, and by the spoonful (no shame). [Read more…]

I’ve been sitting here staring at the blank screen for a few minutes now, wondering what to type. I’m in a coffee shop and the guy next to me keeps giving me weird looks, cause I’m just sitting here staring, not doing anything…soooo I had to start typing something.
