Homemade Almond Milk (and what to do with the pulp)

One of the first foods I changed when I started on this journey was replacing my milk with almond milk. Slowly but surely, I switched to the unsweetened almond milk, and now, I’m fully granola and make my own nut milk each week. A friend of mine asked me about it and said she had no idea how to do it! It’s super easy and trust me, it tastes probably 163x (give or take a couple times) better than what you get in the grocery store, plus! you know all the ingredients in it!

Spinach and Squash Soup (Vegan, Gluten Free & Whole30)

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.

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”

Updates

Over the past two weeks, I’ve been a little too busy. I realized that I might have bitten off a little more than I can chew for the first month of the new year. Unfortunately, one of the many changes I made had to be cut, and sadly, it was my yoga practice. While the previous two months I was able to do two-a-days twice a week, I was having a hard time making myself do a second “workout” every day. I’m trying to figure out how to reorganize my day to put yoga back in, but for now, I’m taking a short break. Continue reading “Updates”

Changes

I had my first visit with my dietitian this week, and as promised, I wanted to tell you all about it.

First, I want to explain why I went to see a dietitian.  Big warning here, if you’re going to see a dietitian, odds are you’re have some issues with your digestive system.  I’ll do my best to keep it not too gross, but poop will most likely be mentioned.  Sorry.
