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.

Guys. It’s so much food, and it’s so delicious! Continue reading “CSA”

We’ve talked about this before, I know. But wouldn’t you know, I’m not good at taking my own advice. A couple weeks ago, I watched a documentary (called Food Matters, check it out!) and in a, they also cover stress and sleep. Continue reading “Sleep”
