How to Love Thoughtfully

It’s so easy to love the way we want to be loved, to give gifts we want to be given, to assume others have the same love languages we do. If someone has the same love-language you do, it’s easy to love them. However, showing love to people that have different love languages can be…

These Are A Few of My Favorite Things…from the month of April

Atomic Habits, by James Clear. This book is a thorough breakdown of why we do what we do, and how to change what you do. I learned so much about myself, and how to work with my natural tendencies instead of fighting against them. Also, if you’re scared of non-fiction, this book is a great…

Why I Workout

I’ve been working out pretty much my entire life, and I’ve always been active in sports. There have been phases where I’ve done workouts daily, and there have been months where I’ve hardly lifted a weight or run a mile. So I’ve seen both sides, and I can tell you from experience that working out…

My Fear of Failure

I have a huge fear of failure. I talk a lot about getting outside your comfort zone and doing things that you want to do, even if they scare you. And I talk about that from a place of personal experience. Everything I’ve done even though I was afraid, I’ve never regretted. But I’m nowhere…

How to Stop Fear From Holding You Back

Chocolate Banana Muffins

I finally found a way to use sweet potato flour in a recipe – and it tastes good! My mom claims them as her favorite 🙂 Satisfy your sweet tooth, chocolate cravings, and needed dose of Vitamin A all in one muffin!

Paleo Protein Chocolate Milk

Last week, I made a poll on Instagram, asking my followers if they wanted my favorite chocolate milk recipe. I got six votes for yes, and one vote for no (and for the record, that person said they don’t like chocolate milk! What??!). I drink this chocolate milk about as often as I drink my…

Like-Starbucks, Iced Matcha Green Tea Latte

I’m obsessed with the Starbucks Iced Matcha Green Tea Latte. But who wants to pay five bucks for a drink? Not me! Especially since I want to drink it ten times in a week! This recipe can save you a lot of money, not to mention it’s a lot healthier! So hurry up and make…

Massaged Greens Tuna Salad

I LOVE massaged greens! Their flavor is condensed, and they’re a lot easier to eat than loose-leaf lettuce. I used The New Primal Hot & Spicy Marinade, but you can use any dressing you’d like – including just a splash of apple cider vinegar and olive oil. If you’re looking for a new, delicious, healthy…
