broccoli and brussels sprout puree

Broccoli and Brussies Puree

I was talking to my mom on the phone yesterday and she goes, “You need to make something with vegetables for the blog, something green.” I guess my recent recipes have been pretty meat heavy.. But little did she know that just hours before I had been making this broccoli-brussies deliciousness! Anyone else call brussels…

shepherds pie

Shepherds Pie

To me, Shepherds Pie (Cottage Pie to you Brits) is the definition of comfort food on a chilly Autumn day. Heartier than soup, but still warm and comforting. I’ve had this recipe up my sleeve for a looong time. I came up with it last Winter, but I was waiting for white sweet potatoes to…

Pork & Plantain Baked Frittata

How is it already almost October?? Riddle me that. June feels like yesterday. Not complainin’ though, I’m welcoming sweater weather with open arms. If it wasn’t for New York’s peculiar heat wave these past few days, then I would be cozied up on my couch sipping earl grey and reading; meanwhile there would be pumpkin muffins…

Who knows what offal is?? Essentially, it’s this magic food that will help your body function optimally, potentially prevent birth defects, and aid in healing chronic diseases. Who wouldn’t want to eat a food that does all those things?! Well, I for one, have a hard time eating enough offal. For those of you who don’t know,…

What CrossFit has given me (besides muscles!)

So this post is quite the digression from my normal sort of blog post, but it’s something that I have really felt the need to get down on “paper” and put out there for any other girls/women who have had similar experiences to me.. Since I put down the baby weights and picked up a…

collard greens

Tasty & Tender Collard Greens

Is that a weird recipe title? I felt a little strange using the word tender to describe a vegetable… but I didn’t know what else to call it! I didn’t want to just call it “Collard Greens” because that’s just boring and uninspired. But they aren’t southern style collard greens either, they’re kinda just tasty…

Well I’m already 1 week into my Whole30 and happy to say that it’s flying by! Haven’t seen huge changes in how I feel/look, but I wasn’t expecting drastic improvements anyhow since eating this way isn’t exactly a shock to my body. The only change I’ve really experienced is actually a slight decrease in energy, but I…
