What’s up guys? You know what kinda sucks? Summer is almost over. August is always such a bittersweet month: ending the fun you’ve had yet getting to start fresh with new beginnings. Continue reading “Salmon Salad Deviled Eggs”
Summer is just my favorite. Isn’t it everyone’s? The weather is nicer, we seem to have more free time, we get to swim and do all the fun stuff, our skin gets more beautiful, the sun gives our hair FREE highlighting. Continue reading “Paleo BBQ Ribs”
I’ve been wanting to recreate PB&J burgers and make them paleo for quite some time now! My obsession with this sweet & salty burger began when I went on a cross-country road trip this summer. On the way home, we stopped at this amazing bar & grill in Laramie, WY, and my life was forever changed. Anyone remember that picture of pad thai fries I posted? THE GREATEST LIL THINGS I’VE EVER EATEN. SWEAR. Continue reading ““PB”&J Burgers + Crispy Oven-Baked Sweet Potato Fries”
PB&J is still one of my favorite flavors for everything, and it’s so weird because neither peanut butter nor jelly is paleo. Buuut…when you make your own it is! And almond butter is a pretty good substitute for PB (not peanut butter by any means, but whatevs..you feel me)! This recipe was made initially for my “PB”&J Burger recipe, which is super rad so you must try it, but then I started making jam with the fruit from my garden at least once a week and figured it’s kind of an essential and needs to be shared!

September has come, and we’ve been having the most lovely Fall weather here in Nebraska. It seriously makes me feel so warm and fuzzy inside because Fall is the GREATEST SEASON EVER!! The coming of Autumn can only mean one thing: ~pumpkin spice lattes~! While I do spend almost every day at Starbucks, I have yet to try their infamous pumpkin drink.

Hey guys!! So you may have seen my picture on insta of ALL THOSE PEARS from my pear tree that’s just goin crazy! I am following through with my original plan and making a beautiful galette with them. Damn, these things are so pretty! Continue reading “Pear Galette”
wahhhhlahhhhh my two favorites combined as one!!! I LOVE breakfast. I LOVE burgers. Plus nothing beats a nice egg yolk atop a juicy burger. And sweet potatoes are good with everything too. Okay, you get it, this is delicious. Continue reading “Breakfast Burgers”
Anybody else trying to incorporate a greater variety of vegetables in your diet? I’m going to be completely honest with you guys. I hate mushrooms…until now at least. Like I’ve said so many times before: bacon makes everything better. Something gross? Add bacon, it’ll be okay. Eat something really delicious? Add bacon and you’ll be amazed by how it got even better. Crazy, I know. Therefore, I knew that to make myself like mushrooms a bit more, I better add some bacon. And thus this recipe was created. What I didn’t know was how totally OBSESSED I would be with it. I could eat an entire batch of these at once. It’s bad. Hope y’all like them as much as I do. 🙂
So besides food, what has everyone else been up to?! How’s the open going? OMG, 15.2 KICKED MY BUTT. I’m still sore…3 days later. It was bad. I’m doing the teens scaled workout, and it was still SUPER tough. I made it to the 4th round and got 141 total reps. (kinda glad I was done there though, I was dead!!)
15.1, however, wasn’t nearly as hard. Unfortunately, I couldn’t stick my clean and jerk PR at 105 after failing twice, so I ended up with 95. I’m not taking this too seriously, though, because I’ve only been in crossfit for a little over a month. What I do want to do is fuel my workouts better with food, and it’s been tough for me to figure out the best way to do that since I go to crossfit from 7:30-8:30 and hate eating that late! If anyone has suggestions PLEASE let me know. If I do eat after crossfit it’s usually 4 oz chicken breast and 1/2 cup of sweet potato. Something light, but enough to refuel.
Other than crossfit I’m still working at the local bakery, and HOLY TEMPTATIONS. The carrot cake scent and espresso cake scent get me every freakin’ time. I’m drooling just thinking about it.
Track season has also begun again, and I just love track so much and all of the people I compete with. And the weather gets nice again, so that’s that best part of all!!
I guess that’s about it in a short paraphrase. I wish I could say my life was more entertaining than that, but, umm…haha it’s not. In other news: s/o to this amazing beautiful wonderful awesome weather we’ve been having (in the midwest at least). SUNSHINE I LOVE YOU!

Breakfast has always been my greatest priority above all else. I’ve never been one of those people who can go about their day without eating in the morning…quite frankly I don’t know if I could function. Unfortunately, this trait of mine has recently become problematic. Continue reading “Bacon Leek Frittata”
When I was a little kid, my brother and I would dip our pizza in applesauce. True story. I no longer eat pizza, but if I did I am certain that I would still smother it in that sweet goodness. I’ve always been a sucker for sweet’n’salty combos, and when I started putting applesauce on my breakfast sausage I was completely in love and it brought back all the memories of my childhood.
