Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats

Overnight Oats: Pumpkin Pie Edition

I’d been seeing overnight oats all over the place (and by “all over the place” I mean “Pinterest” and “other people’s fitness Instagrams” of course) and I was intrigued. I’ve always been used to making my oatmeal the traditional way – hot! – so the thought of mixing my oats with a bunch of goopy […] Read more…

Butternut Bison Blue Cheese Chili

Butternut Blue Cheese Bison Chili

It… is… COLD in Austin this week! I even busted out my furry white North Face and slouchy suede winter boots from my past life in Seattle. And I’m not talking “Texas cold” I’m talking real cold – in the 30s at night. Brrrrr. Needless to say, it’s chili weather. I’m a huge fan of […] Read more…

Sweet and Spicy Coconut Oil Stir Fry

Sweet + Spicy Coconut Oil Stir Fry

I’ve chronicled my love for coconut oil before, especially for using in stir fries. Not only does it make your kitchen smell like a tropical paradise while you’re cooking, but it’s one of the only oils that’s truly stable enough to handle high-heat recipes (aka… stir fries, what up!) and its fats are more easily metabolized […] Read more…

Deconstructed Sushi Salad

Deconstructed Hot + Cold Sushi Salad

I’ve been having massive sushi cravings lately so I thought it would be appropriate to share something I created awhile back when I wanted to use some seaweed snacks in a recipe. This “salad” (more like a platter of Japanese deliciousness than a traditional salad, really) has a lot of ingredients and looks super impressive, […] Read more…

Cabbage Cashew Detox Salad

Cruciferous Cashew Detox Salad

Summer party time is winding down, meaning less late nights, less vacations, and less excuses for why we’re not working out or not taking the time to go grocery shopping. I, for one, was definitely getting lazy in mid-August, but now I’m getting back into the swing of normal life, which means a regular work […] Read more…

Watermelon Ricotta Salad

Watermelon, Olive, + Ricotta Salad

I don’t like the end of summer. Starting with Labor Day, it feels like everything is just about to snowball into dark, short days and gloomy, cold weather. I think my years of living in Seattle conditioned me to feel like this. The fall/winter is so grey and so long that I’d always start to […] Read more…

NatureBox Snack Delivery

NatureBox Healthy Snack Delivery

I’m usually pretty skeptical of monthly Internet deals and delivery services. “Pay $____ and we’ll send a monthly delivery of snacks/makeup/shoes/jewelry/whatever to you” websites usually turn out to be a disappointment, in my experience. (Have you used JewelMint? I used to be obsessed with it but all my necklaces keep falling apart. Bummer.) But! I […] Read more…
