It has been FAR too long since I last posted. I make no excuses; I prioritized other things. The semester went into full swing, and between work, training, dieting, and a personal life, I decided to put this on the back-burner. There's only so much time that I want to spend staring at a computer … Continue reading 10 Weeks, 10 Pounds, 10 Things
A few weeks ago, I did a bit of Instagram networking and was invited to write a guest post. I picked one of my current supplements of interest, and one that I regularly use: tart cherry extract. You can read it here! I hope you enjoy it!
As is usually the case on Sunday morning, my kitchen turned into a secret laboratory while I engaged in pancake experimentation.

I wasn't sure how helpful yesterday's post would be, but it looks like it was a hit! I'm so glad to see that I can help others who are similarly commitment-phobic in the kitchen. Did I mention that I'm terrible at baking? Just being honest, here. That said, sometimes I have good days. The benevolent … Continue reading More Recipes for People Who Hate Recipes
When I was 17, my parents thought I might starve or live off of Eggo waffles for the duration of college. I tried to cook a pork chop that year, and ended up with a creole hockey puck. I'm no chef! But, I have been cooking nutrient-dense meals for myself for some time, and I've … Continue reading Recipes for Other People Who Hate Recipes
I recently engaged in a discussion (okay, maybe a debate) about low-carbohydrate diets as a tool for weight loss in recreational exercisers (that refers to people who exercise without training for a competition, which sets them apart from athletes, technically).
