Creamy Cauliflower Mac | Thanksgiving Sides

18 November 2020

Okay. I finally stopped eating my Thanksgiving sides and right on time to at least get two recipe's out before next week! Whether you're eating alongside close family or staying home, you should still find a reason to feel thankful and EAT. I have no idea where to even start with cooking a turkey and don't think I actually ever want to learn how (lol) so I think I'll sign myself up for sides now and forever. My first recipe: Creamy Cauliflower Mac. It's super creamy, tastes like a healthier version of Alfredo sauce and takes about 5 ingredients to whip up! This is a vegetarian dish and it can be vegan if you substitute the cheese for vegan cheese - FYI Trader Joe's sells an outstanding shredded almond cheese bag. Anyway, here's what you need and how to make! 

How I Fixed My Bloating Discomfort

10 November 2020

Hey guys! Let's talk about one of my favorite subjects - bloating. I'm obsessed with this subject because it's been one of my longest struggles to figure out. Long story short, I went on a wellness journey to try to figure out what caused my bloating discomfort. For the record, bloating is completely normal. Pain from bloating, maybeeee not haha. The first time I spoke to a doctor about it, he said, "Well you're a skinny girl. Your stomach is going to naturally grow as you eat" which now looking back, was the most rude thing to say to a patient who had zero health education. It could've been a serious matter and he didn't even bother to listen. I felt so completely shut down, so I never asked about it again. I did get a new doctor though and my new one is my forced best friend. Anyway, when bloating started interfering with my daily life (what I wore, self consciousness over what I ate, feeling excessively full after very little food)  I knew I had to do something. So I started my research and asking questions! Through it all, I found a lot of what I was feeling perhaps had to do with intestinal issues that I 100% was not paying attention to. Gut health, listening to my body and keeping track of what didn't agree went right over my head and that was the problem. 

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale | Home Decor Picks

25 August 2020

True story. I've shopped the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale ONE time in my life. I see it everywhere every single year and for some reason it's the last thing I pay attention to haha. To be so honest, I think it's because the summer sale I most look forward to is the Zara sale and once that's over I feel all shopped out!  However, I did browse the home section and found some really great items that caught my eye and had to share. All of these items are under $50 and things I would totally buy over clothing because #AdultLife. Anyway, here are my top 6 home picks!

Peach Caprese Arugula Salad

22 August 2020


Four words. Peach. Caprese. Arugula. Salad. You're welcome! Summer salads are my absolute favorite things to eat right now, especially if they involve arugula. Like I mentioned in my last arugula recipe post, I can't get enough of this leafy green and there are so many fun ways to eat it. Another great way is in the form of (obvi) a salad, but a really tasty one! If you love a good charcuterie board, you'll love this one. Here's what you need to make it and how to put it together!

How To: Have a Perfect Date Night In

04 August 2020

Hi friends! How are we doing? I know, Covid kind of sucked the life out of many things, didn't it? I've definitely gotten used to this new life, but I do feel somber here and there! Somber because I can't proceed with life the way I normally would or I forget I can't just happily head out to dinner and drinks with friends or hubby - WAH! This isn't fun anymore, but it's definitely given us all a reason to find ways of getting creative with our new normal and beyond that, finding ways of doing our part to help support local businesses.

Arugula Avocado Toast

14 July 2020

Hey guess what. I'm addicted to arugula! I go in and out of loving different leafy greens and vegetables but currently, arugula is my kitchen staple. It might be because this summer heat has me only wanting fresh, heatless food and arugula is that one leafy green that pairs so well with my current craving. Anyway, because I've been cooking a lot with arugula lately, I'm so excited to host a mini recipe series with different, savory ways to eat this leafy green. First recipe is obviously breakfast related because #BreakfastQueen!
