Fitness. Diet. Pregnancy Take 2.

Pregnancy is a wild journey. And for me, it's not without lots of fatigue, nausea, and heartburn. How people put themselves through this 5 times or more is beyond me. Babies are tight and all... but my goodness. My cap is 2. I'm 20 weeks along and baby is kicking and squirming in its home. … Continue reading Fitness. Diet. Pregnancy Take 2.

A Week of tortillas: Breakfast Pizza

Last week I mentioned that I hurt my ankle and wasn't able to run. I wasn't able to do my long run of eight miles yesterday because my ankle still hurts and it made me sad and reflect on where I am mentally. I have come a long way since I first started training because … Continue reading A Week of tortillas: Breakfast Pizza

A week of tortillas: veggie friendly homemade tortillas

I am a huge tortilla fan. I eat them with breakfast, lunches and dinners if I can. Buying tortillas at the store can cost 4 bucks for 10 which isn't too bad, but for this household it is because we go through at least 30-40  a week with just the two of us. I told … Continue reading A week of tortillas: veggie friendly homemade tortillas

Apple butter in a blanket

I have the winter blues. Like the rest of the country, it's cold in Oklahoma and I miss my sun dresses. It's the coldest it's been since we have moved here but still a lot warmer than the weather we are used to in Missouri. Either way I got the blues and only warm bread … Continue reading Apple butter in a blanket

Spicy Aromatic Cabbage

I have mentioned before that I was a super picky eater as a child. I only liked vegetables that came from a can and only if those cans contained corn or green beans. There was one exception to the rule; cabbage. I love cabbage and my dear mother makes amazing cabbage and it is still … Continue reading Spicy Aromatic Cabbage

Happy Sunday all! Despite having a stats lab assignment due and a lot of grading to do, I am excited for this week. We did our usual grocery shopping trip yesterday and we were able to get some awesome fresh produce which is always uplifting for me. Good food will get me through this week. … Continue reading Garlic & Mustard Mashers

Getting dumped on V-Day and vegan surprise cupcakes

A few years ago before I met D-Money, I dated this guy, Mr. Box. Looking back, I knew Mr. Box and I would never actually end up together; he made fun of my choice of music (I was totally into that TicTok song at the time so maybe I deserved it), his parents didn't like … Continue reading Getting dumped on V-Day and vegan surprise cupcakes

Breakfast in bed: Vegan Whole Wheat Red Velvet Pancakes

There are a plethora of recipes for delicious red velvet any and everything. However there are very few options that I found that are vegan friendly. I like to pretend that these pancakes are super healthy and not as sinful as other red velvet pancakes because they are 1) vegan and 2) whole wheat. The … Continue reading Breakfast in bed: Vegan Whole Wheat Red Velvet Pancakes

Homemade whole wheat bread bowls for two

I mentioned before when giving the recipe for french bread twists that I am obsessed with my bread maker; specifically the dough function. For me it is magical; I can put a dough to knead, run an errand, come back to freshly kneaded dough and form an amazing bread. See? Magical. This Valentine's Day, use … Continue reading Homemade whole wheat bread bowls for two
