Small Victories: Getting Toasty, Five Ways

Flash back 15 months ago. I was done. Done, with what I thought the weight loss journey of a lifetime. Over a year and a half; losing weight, getting thinner. At the end of this span of time, I looked back and thought, “Hot damn, 60 pounds down.” My entire journey, summarized and defined by …

Oats, Five Ways: Trying to Bite My Tongue

Here I go again, breaking a promise to myself. This morning, I woke up and started thinking about this weekend’s blog. I promised myself, I’d stay on topic. Oats. That’s it. No Rants. (I’m not trying to be known as Erin: The Girl Who Complains About The Fitness Industry and It’s Myths…Who Cooks Sometimes) But, …

Short and Simple: Can Carbs Be “Clean”?

Friends, I’ve fallen off of the bandwagon. Hard. Flash back three and a half months ago. There I was, beginning the school year, starting grad school, running a business in the middle of event season, writing/creating content regularly, and sleeping for a good four hours a night. On top of that, I was running 20 …

Homemade Honey Roasted Peanut Butter: Standing Up to the Man

Friends, it’s time we head back to the lab. In the past, we’ve done cookie experiments, international Kit Kat experiments, muffin experiments, macaroon experiments, puff pastry experiments…you name it. Well, today, you’ll need to break out your notepads, pencils, and goggles for yet another test. This time, we’re testing one of my favorite things…in the …

Peanut Butter and Jelly Granola: Playing Selfish

I know, I know. You’re rolling your eyes at me today. Like every other weekend, as you feverishly typed in this site address, which you clearly do on regular basis, you were excited to see something new. Something original. Something I haven’t been doing at least monthly for awhile now. Well, my friends, this week is …

German Chocolate Black Bean Brownies: Trickery at it’s Finest

Today, folks, we’re getting a bit sneaky. Let me explain. For the past few weeks, I’ve shared with you a couple of clean eating, but seemingly indulgent treats, to keep us on track. But, when looking at the Apple Raisin Walnut Oatmeal Bread, Mango Coconut Chocolate Granola, and the PB&J Energy Balls, it’s been pretty obvious …

PB&J Energy Balls: Staying on Track

Folks, I’ve made a decision. The rest of the month of January is going to be dedicated to finding balance. I started last week with my Coconut Mango Chocolate Granola, and now, it must continue. After looking at the recent additions to my baking bucket list, I realized that they all had something in common: …

Mango Coconut Chocolate Granola: Coming to Terms

Hey you! I know who you are! You’re the guy/gal who swore off all junk food when making your New Year’s Resolution last week. You’ve now been eating nothing but lettuce and carrots, like a rabbit, for a week. Late at night, as you rub your rumbling tummy, you’ve found yourself wondering about questions such …

Apple Raisin Walnut Oatmeal Bread: Back To Normal

Well, friends, here we are. Officially at the end of the holiday season. Now, most of us are probably feeling full, tired, and ready to get back to normalcy. But, the powers that be (that damn calendar), tell us on a yearly basis, that New Years Day is the day for all of our lives …

Homemade Granola: The Ultimate Showdown

I know it’s almost impossible to believe, but I’m self-admittedly a pretty “boring” person. Let me explain. When it comes to what I eat, 90% of my diet is the same; day in, day out. While I love experimenting with new baked goods for the blog/business as well as new dinner options, like my life depends on …
