March is National Nutrition Month – what better way to kick it off than with a healthy cooking class alongside my friends? My fellow advertising professional/friend/blogger Aimee has a fantastic food blog called Warm Up The Pan – if you haven’t checked it out, go there NOW! Aimee was gracious enough to host myself and two other friends from Boston this Saturday at her place to cook up some delicious, healthy meals while also giving us some cooking tips and knife skills. Aimee also went to culinary school in her past life, so I am always looking to gain whatever knowledge I can from her (she’s also the nicest person you will ever meet!).
I’ve been in a funk since the holidays. Starting at Thanksgiving (and my 30th – that’s a whole other post!) through New Years I’ve let go of any healthy eating habits and didn’t work out much which is now catching up to me. My clothes are feeling tighter and my skin is acting crazy – so with a three day weekend upon me it was time for some serious meal prepping.
Anyone who knows me is aware of my obsession with Larabars. When I began my healthy eating journey, I went on a hunt to find a bar that tasted good and wasn’t filled with artificial ingredients/tons of sugar. Some snack bars on the market pack a whopping 27 grams of sugar in one bar – to put that into perspective that’s the same amount of sugar in 1/2 of a can of soda. Gross.
The company I work for was closed today for MLK Day – which means I had extra time to test out a recipe I found from my favorite Paleo cookbook author, Diane Sanfilippo.
When thinking of content I wanted to cover for this blog, one of the biggest recurring topics that came to mind was how to stay fit and eat healthy, without breaking the bank.
Holiday vacation is over, which meant back to work for this ad girl today 🙂
While excited to see my co-workers, it’s definitely tough to get back into things. I had my fair share of wine and delicious food over my winter break (which everyone should), and while I will continue to indulge every so often, I wanted to reflect on what goals and changes I want to make in 2015.
