As a pescatarian, I revel in the beauty that is the Portobello Mushroom. It is such a good vegetarian replacement for a burger patty or steak, and they are also great for stuffing or grilling! Last week, I had an amazing salad with roasted Portobello mushrooms, summer squash, and peppers at a restaurant. I wanted to try to recreate this salad, but my fridge was lacking in the vegetable department. The result though, was a Portobello Mushroom Salad, and it was delicious! Continue reading
I made this dish while I was staying in Fort Collins. I was so excited to learn that my future roommate bought a vegetable spiralizer and I could not wait to try it out! We had the girls over one night and I decided to make Pesto for dinner. The girls had it with spaghetti and I had mine on top of Zucchini “Pasta.” Continue reading
A few of you may have seen on my Instagram, or know, that a week ago today (July 21st) would have been Jessi’s 21st birthday. It was a weekend full of emotions, both happy and sad, but I am thankful that I happened to be in Colorado to celebrate with all of her close friends and family last week. Continue reading
Just one week ago, I was waking up in Colorado heading back from a wonderful weekend camping trip. It was a great trip filled with good food, a couple of great friends, slack-lining, sling-shooting, and sleeping under the stars. This trip went so smoothly (aside from the ominous thunder that thankfully rolled away), and I credit planning ahead and preparation for that.
Last week, I packed up my bags and headed back to Fort Collins, the college town home to Colorado State University. I know it may seem strange that on my summer vacation, I took a vacation back to school… but most of my friends reside in Colorado now and I was missing them dearly. The first step was deciding what bags to pack for my week long trip. Do not worry! Despite the picture, I am a light packer. I only bring two bags on trips–even when I go overseas! My go-to-rule is if I cannot carry it myself, then I have overpacked. Continue reading
Hello all! I know I have been unusually absent these past few days, but I am on a “me”-cation. I am back up in Colorado visiting my friends for the week. I know it may be strange that on my summer vacation I decided to head back to my college town, but I have really grown to love the summers up here. I will post about my adventures and such in a longer post when I get back in Texas, but for now, here is a recipe for Sesame Kale Chips I made before my trip up here. Continue reading
I absolutely love summer and everything about it, right down to the +100° and humid Texas weather. Summer just makes me crave healthy and fresh foods like infused water (above: cucumber, ginger & lime), raw produce, and salads. Can you say light and fit foods? Yummy! I am such a visual eater, and that aids in “eating the rainbow” to reap all the health benefits from a variety of fruits and veggies. Continue reading
