It’s my goal every year to get something green past my roommate’s lips. We joke about how picky an eater she is, and so I’ve made it my mission to get some healthy stuff in her every once in awhile. A couple years ago, I hooked her with avocados and pistachios, and last year, I even got her to try brussel sprouts! As this year is getting closer and closer to over, I was searching for a creative way to get her to eat something green. Thanks to my CSA share, I had a huge bag of spinach and some squash. After some Pinterest searching, I found the perfect way to get her to eat something green without having to chew it. Of course, I can’t take complete credit for the recipe, as it’s yet another one I’ve adapted from one I’ve found online. Thanks to Karina at cafedelites.com for the base recipe.
One of the best things about getting the CSA is that you get to be creative with the veggies you get. Last week, I got three small eggplants and I had no idea what to do with them. One week, when I only got one, I made a Chinese dish, 地三鲜, which is delicious, but I didn’t feel like making a whole Chinese meal again.

For those who don’t follow me on Instagram (you totally should, btw @journeytoloving.me), last week, I got back from a 2 week adventure through Scotland! As a military brat, I lived there when I was really young (we left when I was 3 years old), and this year there was a reunion for people who were stationed there, so my mom said “let’s do it!” We stayed in a cute little fishing town on the east coast of Scotland, not far from where we had lived before, and took day trips to see the sights we had done 20+ years ago. And the best part? We ate. A LOT. Continue reading “Traveling Europe!”
Recently, I’ve had a couple people ask me about / ask for advice on a couple of diets that are popular at the moment. Having tried a couple of these diets myself, I’m always happy to talk about them and relate my experience with them.
(To save you all from boredom, I’m splitting this story up into multiple posts.) Continue reading “Restrictive Eating”
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.
