Oh, spaghetti squash! I only recently have realized how awesome you really are. A little history: for some silly reason, when I saw one of my roommates in college cook spaghetti squash and put pasta sauce on it, I thought it was so weird. (Sorry Meredith, I realize now I was being stupid.) Couldn’t tell you why I thought that, maybe it was my college-athlete, carb-filled brain just wanting the “real thing” I guess. How silly I was.

So I think I’ve come to a breaking point.
As promised from my Instagram account (@journeytoloving.me), here is the post of the BEST one pan meals I picked up while doing Whole30. This is easily one of my favorite go-to dishes, and it comes together in under half an hour! This is another one that is super easy and customizable. I have been making this for awhile, and the recipe below is how I’ve enjoyed making it lately, but of course, feel free to customize it as you choose!
Without any further ado: Continue reading “Turkey, Kale and Sweet Potato Bowl”
While reading the Whole30 book today, I found that my favorite part is the “what you’ll probably experience over the 30 days.” I noticed that I have followed the pattern (a little) that is laid out in the book. In it, it says probably around days 12-15, you will dream about food.
YUP. I dreamt about food on about day 15. and not even food I have all that often! I dreamt about ice cream. You know, when you get a brand new container, and the first scoop is always so satisfying to take? Yeah, THAT was what I dreamt about. Thankfully, that was only one night. Otherwise, no dreaming of food. Continue reading “Whole30 – Week 3”
So week 2 has been even better than week 1 was. I realized that the problem I had last week with running was in fact, a problem of not enough fuel. I went running on Wednesday night, and had more fuel to prepare for it.
As I said in my previous post about New Year’s goals, one of my goals is to SOLVE my digestive issues. I have some idea of what is wrong, but I’m still not quite sure. Cue Whole30. I’ve seen some posts about Whole30 on Pinterest and Instagram, but I didn’t really know what it was. So I looked into a bit, and thought it might be a good option for me to try, as it might be able to help me figure out what foods cause issues. Continue reading “Whole30 – Week 1”
I realized today that it has been quite a long time since I have posted a recipe! I’ve been so caught up with life lately, that I keep forgetting to post about food! Crazy, I know. Food is like, my favorite thing. Continue reading “Quinoa with Sautéed Spinach + Chicken”
So I was surfing Pinterest this morning, a now typical-Saturday habit while I eat breakfast, and came across an article someone had pinned, 7 Things People Don’t Tell You About Exercise (or something like that). Well, I took the bait and read the post and realized there’s one point that really stands out for me. Continue reading “Problems”
So there are going to be times when you need to take a break.
That time is apparently this week for me.
I overbooked myself this week, and I have been all over the place. I’ve had plans nearly every night after work, and have had almost zero time to do anything but eat dinner and get from one place to another. Continue reading “Taking a Break”
So it’s been like two weeks. All I can say is: busy busy busy. Seriously. Transitioning into a new job takes awhile. I’m slowly getting the hang of it, but there are days when I think it’s a miracle I got anything done at home.
I was recently asked to talk more about breakfasts, but specifically breakfasts that you can grab and go. Continue reading “Overnight Oats”
