    Salmon Salad with Lemon Tahini Dressing

    Happy Friday! I hope all of you’ve had a great week! I’m sharing a recipe that I ate twice this week for lunch. I’m sharing it because it’s SO simple and yet it hits the spot. Sometimes I find that simple meals are the best. Let’s get to the recipe! Here are all of the ingredients minus the salmon fillet. As I said, it’s simple. You could definitely add more vegetables or some seeds to it if you’d like. I will leave that up to you and your creativity! Although this salad is simple, it has fiber, fat, protein, and greens! A wonderful nutrient dense combination that leaves you feeling…

    How to Make Almond Milk

    Happy Friday! I hope you’ve all had a great week! I’ve spent the majority of my week working on homework. I have one week left, which is exciting but it also kind of makes me sad. I’ve really enjoyed learning about nutrition and I’m not ready for the program to end. I have no doubt that I will continue learning after I graduate. It’s ingrained in me to enjoy learning so there will be plenty more books read and classes that I will be taking in the future! I also wanted to update you guys on this website! I know that I mentioned it before but I will be changing…

    Matcha Latte

    Happy Friday! As I’m writing this post I’m actually drinking a Matcha Latte! I’ve been drinking Matcha for over five years here and there but this last year, I’ve been drinking it consistently as part of my morning routine! I really enjoy coffee but my body doesn’t handle coffee very well. When I suspected that I had Endometrioses and possibly adrenal fatigue, I decided it was time to cut back on the caffeine (per my doctor’s recommendations as well). I honestly never drank more than two cups a day but I decided it was time to find a good alternative. Now, I only enjoy coffee on occasion and I really…

    Berry Oatmeal

    I have to admit something, I used to dislike oatmeal. I know some of you may think I’m crazy for saying that, but I always thought it was bland. Honestly, it was bland, but that’s because I wasn’t adding any good toppings to it. After a lot of trial and error, I have created a recipe that I love and now, I eat oatmeal pretty much every morning! Here are all the ingredients you’ll need! If you would prefer bananas over berries, the banana walnut combo with some almond butter also tastes delicious. I have been loving eating warm oatmeal with fresh berries every morning. I hope you enjoy this…

    Potato Breakfast Bowl

    I’ve been on a breakfast kick lately. Usually, I’m pretty boring when it comes to breakfast. I either have scrambled eggs and toast, oatmeal with berries or a good ol’ smoothie! I don’t mix it up a whole ton, but lately, I’ve been trying different breakfast combinations, and I have to say, I’m really liking switching things up! Today, I thought it would be fun to share one of the recipes that I’ve been enjoying lately. I like eating this recipe in the morning after I workout because it has a good combination of carbs, protein, and good fats. You could also eat this for lunch if you’d prefer. Above…

    Eat Seasonally: A Month by Month Look at Produce in Season

    I generally try to eat food that’s in season. I’m by no means perfect at it but I have found that when I eat in season 1. the produce tastes better 2. It cost less! I get so excited when summer comes around because it seems like almost everything is in season! I can get fresh peaches, apricots, cherries, corn, strawberries, blueberries, and watermelon, just to name a few! The summer months are definitely the best time to stalk up on fresh fruit and vegetables, but you will always be able to find something year around. Today, I wanted to share with you what’s in season month by month, so…
