It’s no secret that a new year often brings new goals and adventures, and the same is true for me. Over the Christmas holiday, in between wrapping, cooking, eating, and spending time with loved ones, I’ve been putting the finishing touches on my brand new website (with some help from the hubby of course)! We’ve successfully moved the blog over and I’m in the process of fixing all of the links so they connect to the new website rather than direct you back here. Make sure to subscribe while you’re over there so you can get updates when I post something new!
Now, if you haven’t checked out the website before reading on, I have some even more exciting news for you! You might be wondering: Why the new site? Well, I’m happy to announce that I am starting my own private practice! In addition to all of the information and ideas I share on my blog and YouTube channel, you now also have the opportunity to meet with me one-on-one for personalized recommendations and guidance. I’d love to help you reach your health goals, so click on over and check out my services. Be sure to like and share my Facebook page as well!
I appreciate the love and support I’ve received from all of you through this blog and your continued support as I start out on this new adventure. Thank you!
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! We had breakfast at our house with Jasen’s parents and sister and then spent the afternoon with my fam. My cousin Allison made cute place cards this year. We were the Native Americans…
… and my cousins were the Pilgrims.
If you love pictures of cute animals, this is for you! Now that we’ve had Moxie for a couple weeks and our second cat for a week, I thought I would share some pics. They are just too precious!
I’m also proud to say that little Moxie hasn’t had any potty accidents in a week and is now allowed full reign of the house at night! No more being stuck in the bathroom for her! Continue reading
So today’s post was supposed to be a cookie recipe. However, as I was working on it this weekend, this happened:
Needless to say they are not blog-ready yet.
So, instead, I thought I would share a yummy eggplant recipe with y’all that I recently found. Now, eggplant is not a favorite in our house, mostly because it’s hard to find eggplant recipes out there that are any good. There are a few, but most of them fall into the “edible” category. If you watched my farmers market haul, you know that we had quite a few eggplants to use up. I just had to figure out what to do with them.
Hi all! I thought I would do an extra post this week since last week was a little lacking. Today I wanted to share a fun local restaurant with you. Jasen and I don’t go out to eat often because 1) It’s expensive and 2) I can/like to cook. So, when we do go out, we try to go to some place that’s exceptional. It is usually a restaurant with something I can’t make (authentic Indian food) or something local and delicious. This past Saturday, to celebrate my new RD status, we had lunch at a restaurant in downtown Fredericksburg called Foode.
This gem prides itself on local and organic offerings with a no-fuss atmosphere. Sounds like my kind of place, huh? I’ve been here once before, about a year ago, for dinner with my mom. Let me just say that this is way too long between visits and, now that I’m living back in the area, I will definitely be visiting them more frequently.
So if you aren’t following me on social media, I have some exciting news to share….
I passed the RD exam! On top of that, this is my 100th post! Coincidence?
It’s surreal to think that this one goal that I’ve been working towards for the past 5 years has been accomplished. It doesn’t seem like that long ago that I was sitting in Jasen’s dorm room elbow deep in chemistry and hating every second of it. I’m so happy that mess is behind me.
The past few weeks I’ve been committed to studying. Not the most fun, but definitely necessary. There was a minor mental breakdown approximately every 3 days during this period, with the last one on Tuesday. Yeah, that “thing” that came up preventing me from posting on Wednesday, that was the exam. I just felt like I still had a ton to study and I couldn’t bring myself to share with the world that I was taking my exam on Thursday. What if I didn’t pass?! “I Failed the RD Exam” was not a post I wanted to write. Continue reading
I must admit, I was blanking a bit on what to write about for today’s post. What I had planned just didn’t seem that good anymore and nothing else came to mind. I really wanted to try to to get this written before dinner came out of the oven to avoid the late night or early morning writing that sometimes happens. Jasen and I bounced ideas back and forth for a while and then it hit me. I could write about dinner! Also, I think posting about our meals could be a fun thing to do every so often, just to show y’all what real life eating looks like for us. Now, let’s get on to the food!
