Chicken “Tortilla” Soup… It’s what’s for #dinner.

The weather outside is frightful. I always said that if the weather drops to the 20s I better see some goddamn snow for this cold to be worth it.

Clean Eating

One of my coworkers the other day asked me what was for dinner. I laughed and shrugged at her. For almost a year, I’ve been using Instagram to post photos of my food. More precisely, my dinner. My infamous line, “It’s what’s for #dinner” has become my tagline. As my posts continued, my ever-changing cooking and eating preferences also continued.… Read more →

Eat ALL things, NOW!

Today marks my 13th day on my first ever Whole 30. I’m almost there – 17 more days until I can re-introduce the “bad” foods. However, today, I feel like a hunger monster.

Going ‘Whole 30’

Don’t take this as me falling on the bandwagon of clean eating. To be fair and honest, I don’t eat a lot of processed foods and try my best to make my own meals.
